Winning at Selling Podcast : Episode #524

Greetings,

Thank you for listening to the episode. Your commitment to developing your selling skills, mindset and techniques is our motivation.

This podcast is dedicated to the overall success in the sales channel.  From the CEO to the front line salespeople, every role must be aligned, trained and committed, every day to achieve the desired outcome.  This is not done without a commitment to ongoing career development in learning market-relevant techniques, overcoming conceptual barriers, applying proactive and productive behaviors and projecting a positive attitude.

Do you want to sell more? Of course you do! That’s why you listen to this podcast. The question is, do you sell scientifically? That’s a pretty good question and I’m not sure if I could answer yes to it. But this episode’s guest will be able to help us find an answer and a better way to sell.

So, put on your white lab coat as Scott and I discuss Selling More with Science with author and sales trainer, David Hoffeld on episode 524 of the Winning at Selling Podcast.

That’s not Fair – is a common reaction when you don’t get your way. You react, thinking the incident is closed; and the time and experience has no future value. But are there ways to make the outcome better than just fair? I say yes.

Learn the valuable lessons learned through undesired outcomes, as Bill and I discuss That’s Not Fair on episode 523 of the Winning at Selling Podcast.

Winning at Selling Podcast : Episode #522

Greetings,

Thank you for listening to the episode. Your commitment to developing your selling skills, mindset and techniques is our motivation.

This podcast is dedicated to the overall success in the sales channel.  From the CEO to the front line salespeople, every role must be aligned, trained and committed, every day to achieve the desired outcome.  This is not done without a commitment to ongoing career development in learning market-relevant techniques, overcoming conceptual barriers, applying proactive and productive behaviors and projecting a positive attitude.

Salespeople are busy! Contacting, prospecting, networking, appointments, creating proposals, following up and hopefully closing a deal will keep the best salespeople busy for 40, 50 or even 60 hours each week. But is all of that time productive and could we get just as much done in less time if we were better organized and efficient?

So, if you can find the time, and more importantly, if you can’t, join Scott and me as we discuss Maximizing Your Day on episode 522 of the Winning at Selling Podcast.

Many people start their selling careers by accident, believing it to be a way to make a little money until they get a “real” job, only to find that it’s an exciting and rewarding profession. Once you have determined to dedicate your life to selling, you find out that it is also complex and challenging. That’s when the real learning begins.

Winning at Selling Podcast : Episode #518

Greetings,

Thank you for listening to the episode. Your commitment to developing your selling skills, mindset and techniques is our motivation.

There is no doubt that the quality and value of your product or service is of paramount importance to you customers and prospects. But the quality of the salesperson is highly important as well. As a matter of fact, many customers buy into the salesperson FIRST – then into the product. With that in mind it may be a good idea to promote yourself in the marketplace as much as you market your service.

So if you want to increase your industry presence, pay close attention as Scott and I welcome our guest, Beau Nordby to discuss How to Market Yourself and other great ideas on episode 518 of the Winning at Selling Podcast.

Winning at Selling Podcast : Episode #517

Greetings,

Thank you for listening to the episode. Your commitment to developing your selling skills, mindset and techniques is our motivation.

This podcast is dedicated to the overall success in the sales channel.  From the CEO to the front line salespeople, every role must be aligned, trained and committed, every day to achieve the desired outcome.  This is not done without a commitment to ongoing career development in learning market-relevant techniques, overcoming conceptual barriers, applying proactive and productive behaviors and projecting a positive attitude.

Salespeople set the buying criteria when they first approach the prospect. “I can save you money!” “We’re different on how we help companies, like yours.” Or, “We do the same, but for cheaper.”  Does this approach create interest and curiosity – or turn the prospect off?

If I piqued your interest and curiosity, stay tuned as Bill and I discuss Same, Different or Better on episode 517 of the Winning at Selling Podcast.

Winning at Selling Podcast : Episode #516

Greetings,

Thank you for listening to the episode. Your commitment to developing your selling skills, mindset and techniques is our motivation.

This podcast is dedicated to the overall success in the sales channel.  From the CEO to the front line salespeople, every role must be aligned, trained and committed, every day to achieve the desired outcome.  This is not done without a commitment to ongoing career development in learning market-relevant techniques, overcoming conceptual barriers, applying proactive and productive behaviors and projecting a positive attitude.

When a prospect or customer agrees to meet with you, agrees to give you 30 or 45 minutes of their time, what is it that they expect to get from this investment? We do know that 2/3 of the buying journey is done on-line, so it isn’t basic product knowledge that the prospect is looking for

And based on surveys, the top 5 words that are used to describe salespeople are: Pushy, Untrustworthy, Annoying, Time, and Greedy! Apparently, salespeople aren’t making a very good impression at those appointment.

So be prepared to take some notes as Scott and I discuss Bringing Value to the Appointment and other great ideas on episode 516 of the Winning at Selling Podcast.
