105 | Breaking Bad Habits, and Why Questions Are Way More Powerful Than Statements and Giving Demos

8/21/2017
More
Too often I see salespeople clamoring for the chance to give prospects a demo of their products. They think that if they could just show clients how their products and services work, the orders would come pouring in. In the same vein, sales people (mistakenly) believe if they just made clients aware of the problem, they’d be eager to sign up, regardless of whether they believed the problem was important or not.

What is it about iconic organizations that allow them to respond with innovative solutions to marketplace needs?

This week we celebrate episode 100 of the podcast! I want to extend a personal thank you to everyone who's supported the show by leaving a review and sharing the podcast with their friends and family.

098 Marylou Tyler | How To Consistently Fill Your Sales Pipeline With Qualified Prospects

7/3/2017
More
No matter what business you’re in, if you want to be successful, you have to be good at sales. I don’t mean simply good at closing sales. I mean good at identifying, attracting and building relationships with the right customers. You can’t close deals if you don’t have qualified prospects continuously entering sales pipeline. Today I talk to Marylou Tyler, a sales and process expert who helps businesses fill their sales funnels with qualified leads that go from “cold” to “closed” in an...

6/26/2017
More
If you’re a small business owner in a small town anywhere in America, you may be tempted to think there’s no way you can compete against a big chain store or an enterprise company with hundreds (maybe even thousands) of employees. You may think you don’t have the resources, the brand recognition or the manpower to go up against the corporate giants. But you’d be mistaken.

094 Leslie Ehm | How To Deliver A Message That Doesn't Fall On Deaf Ears

6/5/2017

One of the key ingredients to running a successful business is being able to communicate effectively with your customers, employees and stakeholders. After all, what good does it do to have a great product or a revolutionary idea if you can’t communicate those products or ideas to others? Being able to communicate effectively with an audience in a way that’s fresh and engaging is critical to your business success. But too often business leaders fall into a communication rut that winds up...

You’ve heard that creating content is important for your business. You’ve heard you need a list of subscribers to market and sell to. You’ve heard the money is in the list. But what if everything you’ve heard about content marketing and list-building is all wrong? My guest today says most businesses need to re-think their approach to content marketing. They need to look at it from the point of view of the customer, from the perspective of the clients they want to reach, and not as another...

092 | Why Sales Is Not Just About The Numbers

5/22/2017
More
Often times, clients ask me: what do I do if I work for an employer who is so focused on hitting a sales quota that the tenets of Same Side Selling get dismissed in favor of pitching and pushing a sale? How do you strike a balance between selling with integrity – an approach that always has the customer’s best interests at heart – and selling to meet an individual objective?

5/15/2017
More
What is it about top performing salespeople who make them so successful? Is it charisma, product knowledge or luck that enables them to land the prized accounts?

Have you ever been in the presence of someone who can make a room full of people hang on her every word? It’s as if she cast an invisible spell upon an audience with her charm and charisma.

4/30/2017

We all know what it feels like to sit through a lackluster training listening to a disinterested speaker drone on and on about a topic he may know lots about, but just can’t seem to bring to life. On the other hand, we’ve also been witness to presenters who take the most dry, mundane material and make it feel fresh and exciting. What’s their secret? How do speakers turn average talks into great experiences that leave audiences feeling inspired and energized? It turns out, great...

088 | Why F.I.T. is the Antidote to Pushy Selling

4/23/2017
More
We’ve all been on the receiving end of pushy, sleazy sales tactics that make us want to run for cover. It doesn’t feel good. Nobody wants to be around a salesperson whose sole focus is to convince a prospect that they need what the salesperson is selling. Instead, buyers appreciate salespeople who know the kinds of problems they solve, and show an interest in learning about their clients’ problems to see if what they have is an appropriate solution. Genuine interest in your prospects'...

We all know what it feels like to be on the receiving end of bad marketing. We come across tasteless ads, intrusive pitches and condescending emails that make us wonder: Why do marketers think it's OK to treat customers like that? And here's one of the biggest challenges: because of marketing automation, people think it’s OK to send out stupid and bad marketing because, since it’s not taking up someone’s time, who cares right? My guest today is Bob London, former corporate marketing exec...

4/10/2017

Do networking events make you squeamish? Do they make you feel sleazy and slimy, like you just want to run home and shower after having participated in one? Or maybe it's not that bad for you. Maybe you just want to develop a professional, online relationship with someone you admire, but you have no idea where to start – or what to even say to that person. My guest today is going to explain how the same principles that apply to face-to-face, offline networking are true for online...
