3 Ways to Beef Up Sales...Immediately
<p class="MsoNormal">Last week, one of my clients—we'll call him Rick—had a demo scheduled with a prospect. The standard "show up and throw up" they typically did early in the sales cycle.</p> <p> </p> <p class="MsoNormal">Trying to shorten the sales cycle, I asked naively, "Why does the customer want to buy? What are they trying to accomplish?" Rick couldn't tell me. I asked if he thought the salespeople knew. He said no. I gave him an assignment: he had to find out "Why," "Why now," and "What's it worth." Otherwise no demo.</p>

The Big Lie We All Bought into...
<p class="MsoNormal"><strong><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; line-height: 115%; font-family: 'Georgia','serif';">As professionals it’s our job to connect the right people with the right information in the right way – a way that makes it easy to say yes if there’s a fit.</span></strong></p> <p> </p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14.0pt; line-height: 115%; font-family: 'Georgia','serif';">This means that when we’re prospecting for new opportunities, what were really looking for are the people that are open to having a conversation.</span></p>
