Can’t Break Through to a Prospect or Client? Create Value with These 3 Sales Strategies.

Can’t Break Through to a Prospect or Client? Create Value with These 3 Sales Strategies.

Whether you’re a veteran sales leader or brand new to the profession, chances are good that at one point or another you’ve struggled to break through with a prospect. Or found it difficult to maintain a strategic relationship with a hard-to-connect-to client.

One of the best ways to accelerate your progress, and therefore your sales results, is to focus on creating and communicating value in every interaction.

When you create value, the prospect or client will remember you and want to continue the conversation. This blog post shares three strategies you can focus on to create value in every interaction.

What Distinguishes a Standout Seller…The Why or the How?

What Distinguishes a Standout Seller…The Why or the How?

Being in strategic selling, often I see sales conversations and the buying process get wrapped up in solution details way too early. I’ve done it too — my mind running a million miles an hour, jumping into creating solutions before I know enough about the true problem or why it’s a priority today.

When we jump into solutioning too early (the “how”), we risk losing prospect or client buy-in. We miss the opportunity to understand the “why” behind the interest. Why it matters to this person and the business. We might miss the opportunity to more creatively solve the challenge.

So what distinguishes a standout seller? I share that on the blog and in a short video.

Accelerate Your Sales Results in 2019 with These Skillsets

Accelerate Your Sales Results in 2019 with These Skillsets

The last few days of the year provide the perfect time to reflect on what we’ve learned, and to lay the groundwork for an even more successful and productive new year.

Of course, 2018 was the year I launched my book, The Modern Seller.

Let’s take a look back at the five core dimensions of modern sellers: modern sellers are agile, entrepreneurial, holistic, social, and ambassadors.

These five dimensions are the skillsets that modern sellers need to develop to sell more and increase their impact in the new sales economy. Throughout the fall I published a series of short videos to help introduce the dimensions to you. Now, I’ve compiled them into one, easy to reference resource page that you can find on my blog.

Thanks again to all my clients, colleagues, partners and friends for being a part of my journey in 2018. I look forward to serving you in 2019.

2018 Wraps Up with an Amazon Best-Selling Book, Sales Keynote Engagements and New Partnerships

2018 Wraps Up with an Amazon Best-Selling Book, Sales Keynote Engagements and New Partnerships

The first half of 2018 was filled with some big progress, and in this post I’d like to share a few second half highlights with you. As I created this list, I couldn’t help but be filled with gratitude. Every one of these highlights is rooted in relationships. I’m reminded of the African proverb we see quoted so often: “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” My name might be on the blog post, but there is no way I could’ve accomplished these goals without you, my team, or the partnerships in my life.

Thank you for being a part of my journey this year. Happy holidays to you and your family. I look forward to helping your organization create more sales success in 2019.

When I was researching for my upcoming book, The Modern Seller, one sales skillset stood above the rest: Ambassador. To be successful in the new economy, your sales team needs ambassadors. As a sales leader or sales trainer, you can help them evolve the necessary skills and tools.

In this article for Training Industry, I take a look at what an ambassador is, and share how to build a sales organization of ambassadors.
