Winning at Selling Podcast : Episode #454


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.

Well, Bill, thanks for putting this proposal together. It looks really good, but I need to think about it for a bit. I’ll give you a call in a couple of weeks – OK? But it’s NOT OK, is it? It sucks because you can feel the sale slipping away into an endless series of calls, delays and put offs. But what can you do about it now? The customer just took over the sale!

So shake of those negative feelings as Scott and I discuss Dealing with Customers Who Delay and much more on episode 454 of the Winning at Selling Podcast.
