    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.


    Example: Top Line Sales helped one of their TOP Line Account War Room clients land a contract for a new customer worth 20m – their second largest deal in the country for that solution set

    3 Magical Sales Secrets

    in Business

    careful structuring of my presentations that lead people to want to buy without having to resort to the high-pressure, cheesy sales tactics employed by so many platform salespeople.


    (Don’t make the mistake of thinking what I’m going to share with you is just about platform selling. It applies to virtually all types of sales situations.)


    Step #1: Preconditioning through commitment


    You’ve probably been subjected to a platform salesperson asking you the most insane questions to elicit a positive response. For example, he jumps on stage and says, “How many of you want to make a lot of money?!!!”


    Step #2: Setting up desire.


    I want to sell people what they want. It’s a heck of a lot easier than trying to convince them they need something. The cool thing is you can create desire in your prospects in very subtle ways.


    Step #3: The “recall” close


    When I got to the part of the bootcamp where I made the actual product offering, I use the “commitments” the audience made in step #1 and the desire for the product I created in “step 2″ to compel many of the audience members to invest.
