    Recruiting Real Estate, Insurance Agents or Any Sales Representative

    in Marketing

    Recruiting is the backbone of many 1099 sales organizations. Pure recruiting is not hiring. Hiring implies the company is offering a full-time, part-time or a time-based, contracted salary. Some sales organizations have hybrid arrangements to provide a salary during a probationary period, then commission-only status begins.


    Recruiting typically means salespersons will only receive commissions.


    Many companies tell recruit candidates all the things that make their companies great such as products, company profile, etc.


    There is usually a couple things missing from most sales organizations.


    We will discuss these missing-in-action items.


    We hope you enjoy the show.


    321SETAPPOINTMENTS.COM provides affordable appointment setting, sales training and business development services to real estate brokers, insurance agencies, and select traditional industries such as dentistry, cosmetic surgery, LASIK surgery, CPAs, and information technology firms in the U.S. and Canada.

    Sales Training Complexes: Things That Hold Us Back from Successful Selling

    in Marketing

    This show is from a recent sales training class conducted for a Sacramento area client.


    Many salespersons suffer from complexes that hinder production and performance. Interestingly enough, true sales training helps salespersons understand and work through these issues.


    My sales training company, 321SetAppointments.com, recently added the module on managing complexes.


    As discovered, the majority of salespersons agreed that they had some type(s) of complexes which needed to be addressed.


    A solid sales process is the key to minimize the ill-effects of complexes. Salespersons experience anxiety and frustration because most sales training programs do not include this every important conversation. It's definitely not an easy conversation to have with people, but the salesperson attendees were grateful that the subject was brought to the forefront.


    We hope this show helps salespersons, insurance managers and real estate brokers.

    5 Characteristics of Highly Successful Independent Sales Teams

    in Marketing

    A growing trend is to build business by paying the sales team on performance.


    Companies who need sales contract with independent sales reps (commission only sales reps) who represent the company's products or services. The independent sales representative is not an employee, but rather an independent contractor. The sales rep may represent multiple companies and products or services, usually within a very well-defined geography and industry.


    Finding great independent sales reps can be tough. There is a much higher demand for great independent sales reps than there is supply. And if not recruited and qualified and managed well, independent sales teams may not be successful at all.

    Why top producers may not be good sales managers ( and what to do about it).

    in Management

    We've all seen it. A top producer is promoted and goes from sales superstar to average manager (or worse).  The reason why is that the attributes and skills of a top sales person are not the same as a top sales or branch manager.  In this episode, we discuss what makes a great sales manager and tips to support a new one.

    in Religion

    Live two hour inspiring show with co-hosts Brother Dave Jesusonian, Richard Stinson, Darren S. Henley and our featured Guest: Hamid Masdeh, who will discuss the growth of Christianity in Iran and other Islamic countries. 


    From the supernal 2097 page The Urantia Book in the public domain


    [Paper:Section.Paragraph]


    149:2.5 The teachers of the religion of Jesus should approach other religions with the recognition of the truths which are held in common (many of which come directly or indirectly from Jesus' message) while they refrain from placing so much emphasis on the differences.


    95:7.6 The strength of Islam has been its clear-cut and well-defined presentation of Allah as the one and only Deity; its weakness, the association of military force with its promulgation, together with its degradation of woman. But it has steadfastly held to its presentation of the One Universal Deity of all, "who knows the invisible and the visible. He is the merciful and the compassionate." "Truly God is plenteous in goodness to all men." "And when I am sick, it is he who heals me." ...
