    Time Management for Aviation Sales and Marketing Teams

    in Business

    Disclaimer- There Will Never Be Enough Time!


    In a sense, there is no such thing as time management.


    We all have exactly 24 hours in a day, seven days in a week, 365 days in a year. No amount of management will alter those facts.


    The only thing we can actually manage is our own activities and those of our teams.


    In our years as sales and marketing consultants, we’ve found that the teams that get the best results are not necessarily the ones with the coolest product or the most brilliant campaign ideas. The team that are the most successful are the ones that get things done!

    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.

    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.

    January 7, FEG Sacramento Sales Training Recap of Wednesday Training

    in Marketing

    On January 6, 2016, my company, 321SetAppointments.com, started working with a life/annuity insurance agency based in Sacramento. Freedom Equity Group (Sacramento) or FEG Insurance Services LLC, headquartered in Santa Barbara County, is part of a network of FEG offices across the United States.


    Today's show will serve as a recap of Wednesday's sales training. The full training session is scheduled for January 9, 2016 at the Sacramento office.


    At the request of the Sacramento FEG manager, 321SetAppointments.com is helping agents learn the art of Selling Without Appearing to Sell or SWAS.


    The actual fee-based, SWAS sales training is a 6-hour session that helps insurance and real estate agents, or any company with a sales component, learn how to sell using traditional sales training practices.


    These sales training overview will be 30 to 60 minutes, each Thursday evening, 730 (PT).


    The first four weeks will not include any conversations with agents from the office. By early February, we will showcase agents who are learning and growing.

    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.
