    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.

    SWAS Part 2 of 2: The Sales Process

    in Marketing

    This 3-hour SWAS session is the pièces de résistance or the grand prize of our sales system.


    Seventy-five percent of life insurance agents, as noted in LifeHealthPro, "The Sales Rep's Lament" http://www.lifehealthpro.com/2015/04/19/the-sales-reps-lament, are not successful. It's not agents' fault. Most agents never receive formal sales training.


    Formal sales training is not cheap. It cost my company when I worked in corporate America $10,000 in 1994 for an 8-day class. Most independent marketing organizations (IMO) and name-brand, franchise carriers are not going to pay this kind of money for every agent to learn how to sell.


    SWAS is probably the best, affordable solution for agents to get a fast and powerful dose of sales training.


    The overall result achieved by agents learning the SWAS sale process is the ability to work with insurance applicants using the same approach. The agent will not have to differentiate the sales approach according to various applicant profiles. Confidence is developed much faster and is stronger using SWAS.


    Specific topics covered in Part 2 are:



    Rapport Building (different than traditional methods)
    Developing Need (different than traditional methods)
    Evaluating Options
    Affordability Concerns
    The Insurance Application Process
    Why Use This Carrier
    The Financial Needs Analysis
    Getting Referrals with Ease


    Thanks for listening to the show.

    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.

    Pre-Call Planning is the Key to Sales Call Success

    in Business

    Lively discussion with Lisa Magnuson:  Pre-Call Planning your Single Source for Prospecting Success


    When was the last time your team closed a seven-figure deal?  Despite the best sales talent, many high potential, big contracts either get whittled down, end up stalled, or are lost completely.  Large, strategic accounts are complex and require a very different approach to identify, develop and win.  Can you afford to chase smaller opportunities at the expense of bigger deals that can exponentially change your company’s growth curve?


    Top Line Sales has a proven track record of guiding account teams to land larger deals.  We’re proud to have enabled our clients to land over $100 million in new contracts.  We are not simply advice-givers - we work side-by side with your account executives, running deal war rooms, applying just-in-time expertise, tools and live deal coaching where it counts: in the field.
