Episode Highlights

How To Be Great At Sales Without Being Sleazy?

  • We need to learn how to connect with our potential clients first.

  • Ensure that you are listening to potential clients more than you are speaking to them.

    For instance, if you focus on asking open-ended questions and then listening to their responses, oftentimes you find that they talk themselves into why they may need or want what you’re offering. Listening more is a powerful way to not only build a rapport with clients but also help them see that you’re coming from a place of service, not a place of only wanting to make a sale.
  • In a case where the person is not interested, it is okay for you to move on. When you allow yourself to move on from that relationship, often the person feels more comfortable and might even end up referring other people to you in the future.

Managing Your Time-

  • In sales, time management is of great value.
  • Managing your time well increases productivity of an individual and also avoids forgetting important things.
  • Time management ensures the completion of tasks at a much faster rate and more effectively. Plan your day well in advance.

Building Rapport-

  • It is important to build rapport in sales as it helps to build mutual trust and friendship with your customer or client.
  • We must take the time to understand our customers’ needs.
  • Building rapport with your client/colleague is important as it gets their mind to accept and begin to process your suggestions.

Final Thoughts

Stop selling and start connecting. Focus on the connection- to get to know people and to not go into that call thinking about it only being a sale. Focus on building up your pipeline so that you have those consistent conversations. Celebrate the fact that you had the courage to ask and show up in the first place.

We do not need to sell to everyone in order to be successful.
