3 Things We Learned From This Episode
The two steps of selling (10:35-11:22)
Sales is a people-based process, and the first two steps of selling are prospecting and engaging. Many business owners think selling is all about overcoming objections when in fact it’s about solving problems. Good selling involves helping people, not pushing them towards a sale.
We shouldn’t tweak something if we don’t know how it works (25:50-27:00)
When we purchase books, courses, or get advice from sales professionals, we have to follow it thoroughly. We should only tweak the script once we’ve had some success to prove that we understand the process.
There are sales strategies suitable for introverts as well (27:49-30:06)
One of the biggest fears many of us have when it comes to sales is getting on a call. Yet, selling doesn’t necessarily require phone calls. There are other ways we can sell that are more comfortable for us. In most cases, bad experiences can be avoided if we stick to the script because we sound professional and aren’t forced to reinvent the formula.
