12/1/2018
More
Public speaking isn't just those times when you're communicating in front of a large group of people. In fact, public speaking is anything other than the times you're whispering to yourself or talking in your own head. If someone else hears you communicating, it is public speaking. Publically communicating ideas and information is essential in business, especially sales. Yet many times we have a hard time articulating the right message to our clients and coworkers. This challenge to...

167 | Avoid The Sales Quota Trap, Ian Altman

11/10/2018
More
Sales quotas are meant to help businesses achieve incremental goals. But, if they become the primary focus for the seller to 'just close deals' without the client's best interest in mind, then you put so much at risk for your business. I've seen too many sales professionals make rash decisions in order to meet a quota. For example, many might decide to offer huge, irresponsible discounts just so that they can close the deal before their incentive deadline hits. On this episode, I share...

More
Discover (and fix) the gap in customer service you never knew existed. Businesses can easily fall into the trap of thinking the customer service experience is all about ‘going the extra mile’ or ‘trying to exceed exceptions’. When in fact as Geoff Ramm explains in this episode these phases are 30- 40 years old and misconceptions about how to approach our level of service. There is a better approach to completely redefine our levels of customer service. On this Same Side Selling episode,...

164 | Overcoming Fear in Sales And Business, Waldo Waldman

10/20/2018
More
Fear and sales don't usually mix well. When you're paralyzed by fear, it's hard to perform at the highest possible level. But, as Waldo Waldman points out, it's inescapable. We're all afraid of something and, at every level of a career, we inevitably encounter things that we're afraid of. Whether it's a skill like public speaking or a particular situation like leading a team, certain things are going to leave us shaking in our boots. However, fear isn't necessarily a bad thing. Instead, it's...

163 | What Distinguishes a Good Sales Team from a Great One?

10/13/2018
More
Why do some sales teams flourish while others struggle? What do good teams do so well that other companies don't? Recently, I've been working on a new book. As part of my research, I interviewed executives at high-growth companies and come to understand why some companies are able to grow so fast while others have a hard time getting off the ground. On today's episode of Same Side Selling, I discuss what makes some teams excellent and others just mediocre. Listen to this episode and...

On this episode, Bob London returns to discuss some bad sales prospecting strategies. One of our listeners wanted to hear our thoughts about the idea they're considering to drive an Uber during a well-attended sales conference picking up attendees.

158 | The Key to Selling is Trust, Ian Altman

9/9/2018
More
In sales, there's no skill more valuable than the ability to establish trust. If you can earn a client's trust, it's far more likely that they will buy from you. After all, we want to buy things from people who we know have our best interest in mind. No one wants to hand money over to someone who is simply trying to make a sale. This episode of Same Side Selling is all about trust. In the episode, I expand on why it's so crucial to sales. Additionally, I discuss some ways that you can earn...

Humor is a great skill no matter who you are. It's a particularly valuable tool for businesspeople. If we can make people laugh, or at least entertain them a bit, we can use that skill to achieve all kinds of goals. We can build rapport, get people to pay attention, help them to understand complex topics, and boost energy in meetings. Unfortunately, many people avoid it because they think they're not funny. However, Andrew Tarvin believes that everyone has the potential to be funny, or at...

8/27/2018
More
Marketing events have always been important in business. Trade shows, for example, give companies the chance to educate the public about their products and connect with potential customers. But, as Erin Gargan King points out, today's consumers can get most of their education online. After all, companies should already have that information on their website. Just because we use the internet to educate our customers, though, doesn't mean that marketing events are obsolete. In fact, they may...

8/18/2018

Amy Franko has a keen sense of the ways in which B2B sales are changing. After all, today's business landscape looks a lot different than it did a decade ago. Companies don't simply buy products any more. Instead, they seek out long-term relationships with other companies, hoping that their investment will give them a competitive advantage. Of course, these changes create all kinds of challenges for salespeople. In order to thrive, sellers and sales leaders must adopt new techniques. But...

8/12/2018

On this episode of Same Side Selling, I discuss LinkedIn. It's one of the most powerful tools that sales and marketing professionals have ever had access to. However, sales and marketing folks often find ways to ruin great things. In my experience, many people use the platform in profoundly stupid ways. LinkedIn is a great place to connect with potential customers, prospective employees, and other likeminded folks. But to optimize the platform's potential, you need to be smart about how you...
