Winning at Selling Podcast : Episode #503

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.

Any worthwhile salesperson loves to win the deal. In many cases that is their major motivation. However, they are also greatly motivated by getting paid for the work and effort it took to get that deal closed. But commission structures, territories and base pay are all considerations regarding how much we see in our paycheck.

Sales Managers and sales professionals should all pay close attention as  Scott and I discuss Sales Compensation Plans and other great ideas on episode 503 of the Winning at Selling Podcast.

What is your strategy for making more sales this year than you did last year? If you don’t have a well thought out plan, you probably won’t hit your goals. With a good strategy you will make more effective phone calls, have better discovery appointments and ultimately close more deals – deals that will get you more referrals. But as it has been said, if you don’t have a plan, you are planning to fail!

So, if you don’t want to fail, let Scott and I share some thoughts on Sales Strategy and other great ideas on episode 501 of the Winning at Selling Podcast.
