    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.

    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.

    Why Cold Calling is Still Essential

    in Business

    When you read anything or hear anyone say "cold calling doesn't work," please notice what they are selling!


    Bruce King, has written several international best selling books on sales and he's here to tell you why cold calling is essential.  He's also going to share about his latest book that is titled Smash Your Goals.


    Bruce King is recognised internationally as a leading sales, marketing and personal growth strategist. He is a highly sought after keynote conference speaker, sales and marketing master class presenter and sales trainer, business adviser to SMEs, a personal coach and best selling author.


    Bruce King’s earliest career was in the field of complimentary medicine and personal growth. He qualified as a nutritional consultant and acupuncturist and studied and taught numerous powerful, personal growth and personal development techniques.


    After several successful years in the complimentary medical field, Bruce decided he needed a new challenge and, by what he describes as “a bizarre series of coincidences”, he entered a career in sales as a commission only salesperson in the financial services industry. He studied with some of the world’s top sales coaches and had an extremely successful and profitable career selling and managing sales teams for some of the UK’s top companies.


    In 1994 Bruce was commissioned by the BBC to write his first book. Titled ‘Psycho-Selling – Double Your Income From Sales In 8 Weeks’, the book became an international best seller and launched Bruce’s career as an international conference speaker.


    Bruce recently produced a 45 minutes FREE webinar titled Selling Made Easy – Double Your Sales. You can view it and several other shorter but equally powerful videos at http://www.bruceking.co.uk/category/videos/
