AND WE’RE BACK! – Scott “Professor Plum” Plum of the Minnesota Sales Institute & Bill Hellkamp of REACH Development Systems

Ever scratch your head and ask yourself, why did I do that OR what was I thinking?

Well, it’s quite possible, you were not thinking, rather acting out of existence and the subconscious.  These are legit reasons; however, they may not hold up in court or in a conversation with your sales manager.

We are so lucky to have a neuroscientist with us today to discuss the brain, why it follows and how you can make it work for you.  So put your phone on silent, grab a notebook and pen and take notes as Bill and I discuss Why the Brain Buys with Dr. Terry Wu and much more on episode 439 of the Get in the Door Podcast.

The sale is moving forward nicely. You’ve had some great discovery sessions and have put together a solid proposal. Now as you are discussing the details you hit a snag.

So put on your helmets and tighten your chinstraps as Scott and Bill discuss Handling the BIG Objections and much more on episode 438 of the Get in the Door Podcast.

CLICK HERE FOR THE SLIDES

11-10-2020 — Club E will be joined by Scott Plum, President, Minnesota Sales Institute

Creating a sales culture starts at the top. Company leadership defines the sales culture – every day – by what they are willing to tolerate from the sales channel. Every day we can proactively focus on our goals or by reacting and waiting for someone else to do something.

Scott Plum is the President of the Minnesota Sales Institute and facilitates most of the classes taught.

He is Professor Plum and host of the podcast “What Salespeople Need to know About Selling” and co-host of the weekly podcast “Get in the Door Podcast.”

He published the book; Taking Off Into the Wind – Creating Lift Out of Life. This book is written for the person who is a salesperson – the human being before the human doing. A salesperson of someone that has an Impact on the Experience and an Influence in the Outcome.

AND WE’RE BACK! – Scott “Professor Plum” Plum of the Minnesota Sales Institute & Bill Hellkamp of REACH Development Systems

For most of us, 2020 will go down as a year of adaptation.  Some goals were met, others abandon.  Without options, we feel helpless, which leads to hopeless.  A terrible state.  Based on your current outcomes, what goals will you commit to next year, next week or even tomorrow?

Let’s start a wish list of the areas in your life you want to transform, as Bill and Scott discuss Goal Setting and much more on episode 437 of the Get in the Door Podcast.

Get in The Door Podcast: Episode #436

Greetings,

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

AND WE’RE BACK! – Scott “Professor Plum” Plum of the Minnesota Sales Institute & Bill Hellkamp of REACH Development Systems

When I ask salespeople why their customers change vendors the number one answer I get is price. But when you look at B to B surveys the reality is much different. One survey I saw showed that only 15% left because of dissatisfaction with the product or price. The REAL number one answer – 67% of customers leave because they don’t feel valued by the vendor. How do we fix this? Well one way is to develop better relationships with our customers.

So fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy night when Scott and I discuss Quickly Creating Rapport and much more on episode 436 of the Get in the Door Podcast.

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

AND WE’RE BACK! – Scott “Professor Plum” Plum of the Minnesota Sales Institute & Bill Hellkamp of REACH Development Systems

There is a difference between can and will.  Some salespeople can close, but don’t.  There is also a difference between can, will and should.  Salespeople that can and will sell, should sell what to whom?  Defining the ‘what’ and ‘whom’ is the start of defining your objectives.

In the words of Zig Ziglar, get out your talking pad as Bill and I discuss Defining Objectives and much more on episode 435 of the Get in the Door Podcast.

So, you call yourself a sales professional! And that might be true, in that you get paid to do what you do. But are you at the top of your game or are you satisfied to play at an amateur level. We know that professional athlete’s practice and exercise so that on game day they can be the very best, the most elite of those who play the sport.

Are you more interested in work/life balance than on getting the job done? Does your morning routine include a big cup of coffee and extended internet news?

Information is essential for open and relevant conversations. Asking each other questions is a mutual activity. What type of questions progress the sales process, which ones stall it out and which ones can kill it all together.
