    Who Said Sales Was Going to Be Easy?

    in Marketing

    Sales, the final frontier.


    Sorry, the phrase, "the final frontier", are the words from the hit, sci-fi show "Star Trek".


    Well, you now have a business or maybe you have been practicing your trade for a few years.


    The trend over the last 5-10 years has been to move away from connecting with people in face-to-face or telephone conversation in favor of "engaging" them over the Internet.


    If you really want to be successful in selling, you can continue using digital platforms but you must realize that sales is a people business. It always has been, and it always will be.


    Don't be afraid. You can do it. It's fun.


    Try it today.

    Get Invited to the Strategy Table

    in Business

    Guest: Paige Lillard CEO and Principal of Beacon Consulting PBL and Former Lead Judge, Malcolm Baldrige Award for Performance Excellence


    There’s nothing more frustrating than to be given a goal by senior leadership only to realize that had they consulted your team, they may have developed a much more meaningful goal or altered the strategy completely to optimize the outcome. How do internal teams that provide services to the lines of business (HR, Technology, Legal, Operations etc.) earn respect as a strategic partner and get invited to join planning conversations with executives much earlier in the process? Paige Lillard provides straightforward answers and the key to get your voice heard in strategy meetings.

    in Finance

    Christopher Markowski, America’s Watchdog on Wall Street uses his expertise to dissect the fraudulent companies and can elaborate on the ways to get the most credulous information from top-notch financial institutions.


     


    Time and time again we have seen Wall Street companies being ousted for their fraudulent business practices. Just recently five Wall Street banks were charged with a $5 billion dollar fine for rate rigging. How is this supposed to make the average consumer feel? Who is really helping and who is just out to steal?


     


    It seems as if every financial company is secretly out to get the consumer making it more important than ever to find a company with your best interests in mind.

    What it Takes: Core Beliefs, Personal Development, Sales Training

    in Entrepreneur


    Sales training. Sales training is not product training. Sales training is learning how to relate to prospects in a way favorable such that, both, the agent and the prospect have meaningful, two-way dialogue during the sales interview.
    Personal development. This area involves keeping a positive attitude when you do not feel like working. Personal development reduces anxiety and frustration so you will not beat yourself up.
    Core beliefs. This is the set of values that defines you. No one can take these from you. Your core beliefs can accelerate your sales performance. Or, your core beliefs can dampen your sales performance. 


    If your core beliefs are not aligned with good sales performance and revenue expectations, you can develop new components to establish a new belief system... but it is not easy. You have had your current core beliefs for the last 25, 35, 45, or 55 years.


    But here's one thing I learned and use to help salespersons. Getting all three-sales training, personal development and core beliefs-to fire in harmony starts with sales training.


    If you do not know how to sell, while trying to improve personal development skills and working from your current belief system, functioning as a salesperson becomes extremely frustrating.


    Why? Because personal development training is not sales training, and this results in salespersons working too hard trying to wing it with prospects. Salespersons will often spend years and thousands of dollars on personal development training and never learn how to sell.


    Sales training helps clear the fog about what you are selling. Here's how:



    Learning how to sell and generate more income, the mind becomes more receptive to personal development training.
    Next, personal development training exposes negative core beliefs that need to change.
