Winning at Selling Podcast : Episode #489

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.

All sales conversations have creator. Sometimes it’s the salesperson trying to start one, others, include prospects raising their hand and initializing it. When prospects start the conversation, are you prepared to leverage the opportunity and convert the conversation to a commitment?

If you want to close more sales from conversations you don’t start, tune in as Bill and I discuss Converting Quotes to Commitments and other great ideas on episode 489 of the Winning at Selling Podcast.

Winning at Selling Podcast : Episode #488

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.

What we say and how we say it can affect both our meaning and our client’s reactions to it. There a big difference to the statements:  “Let’s eat, Grandma!” and “Let’s eat Grandma!” But if you don’t think through what you want to say, you may not be communicating correctly.

So let’s see if Scott and I can communicate correctly as we discuss how to Choose Your Words Carefully and other great ideas on episode 488 of the Winning at Selling Podcast.

Is there any way that selling is similar to martial arts? The moves, the countermoves, strategies and tactics. It’s an interesting idea and one that has been played out by our guests. But you will have to determine if it’s a meaningful analogy and one that will help you sell more effectively

I’ve heard it a thousand times: “She’s a great talker, she should be in sales!” But is that really true? Is being a good talker an indicator of a successful salesperson, or are there other traits you should be looking for? Are you frustrated with you own level of success and not sure if selling is “your thing”?

Well, break out those muff style headphones so you can really focus as Scott and I discuss Should You Be in Sales? and other great ideas on episode 485 of the Winning at Selling Podcast.

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

When I messed up my Dad used to tell me that I had just “shot myself in the foot”. But then he was a military man. Some of his more colorful aphorisms might slip out later in the show so stay tuned. In any event we have all been our own worst enemy on a sales call and done or said something that caused us to lose the deal.

To minimize this problem, listen for behaviors you should avoid as Scott and I discuss the Top 5 Ways to Screw Up Your Sale and other great ideas on episode 483 of the Winning at Selling Podcast.

Good or bad. Technology is here to stay.  The impact on the role of a salespeople will be determined by how company leadership uses it.  It could create greater barriers for customers, we have all experienced that, or aid in the development of selling skills.  Probably not as common.

How can technology through gamification and microlearning contribute to our ever presence and existing greatness? Close your laptops, unmute yourself and tune in as Bill and I are joined by our Guest: Kristen Taraszewski to discuss The Gamification of Training and other great ideas on episode 482 of the Winning at Selling Podcast.

Winning at Selling Podcast : Episode #481

Greetings,

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

A common myth and reputation of salespeople is they are motivated by money, and they don’t care where is comes from.  This is simply not true. More money will solve a lot of problems, however, success from a different type of motivation can bring more joy than money.

Hold on to your wallets, as Bill and I discuss – Are You Too Money Motivated? and other great ideas on episode 481 of the Winning at Selling Podcast.
