2019 is almost a wrap. This has been an eventful year that’s included my recognition among the LinkedIn Top Voices in Sales and Top Sales World’s Top 50 Sales Blogs. Those awards are especially meaningful, because one of my goals is to continually grow thought leadership resources for the sales community, to help you ignite your sales and make a leadership impact.
From my dozens of posts in 2019, here’s a recap of the sales blog content that most captured your attention and can provide important lessons you can carry with you into 2020.

Today’s topic in The Modern Seller video series is client loyalty. It used to be that satisfaction was the highest measure of success, and it’s still what many companies measure. But in the new sales economy, satisfaction is merely table stakes. Gallup has done research in this space and found that only 29% of our clients are truly engaged with us. Loyal.
That leaves up to 71 percent of clients that range anywhere from very satisfied to completely disengaged. These are the clients that can be swayed to move elsewhere…even the satisfied ones.
Modern Sellers are what I call Ambassadors. They’re skilled at cultivating loyalty and building long-term value. Because they take this long view, it’s a game changer for sales growth. The likelihood of expanding your sales into an existing loyal client is between 60 to 70 percent. The likelihood of selling to a net new prospect is only 5 to 20 percent.
To cultivate greater selling power, there are three common loyalty traits that are worth building in your best clients. I discuss these more in this week’s video.
