Winning at Selling Podcast : Episode #584


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.

According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics there a 13,183,250 people listing their job title as sales or selling. They have a mean annual wage of $50,370 (and that is really mean!) and if you are in the 90th percentile, the average wage is $94,040. That tells us that there a lot of sales reps out there who are basically starving to death because they don’t know how to differentiate themselves from the pack.

So, if you want to move into that top 10%, listen up as Scott and I welcome our guest Sales Leadership Expert, Steve Keating to tell us How to Move from Sales Rep to Trusted Advisor on episode 584 of the Winning at Selling podcast.
