Winning at Selling Podcast : Episode #476


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.

The very first step in any selling process is to find someone to tell about your product or service. Cold calling is fine and has an important place in sales, but it can be frustrating and usually has a low contact and acceptance rate. You can do much better if you can get a referral, if someone you already know advises you to talk to one of their contacts.

So put down that cold call list as Scott and I discuss After Sales Issues – Referrals and other great ideas on episode 476 of the Winning at Selling Podcast.
