The Power of Gratitude

Most of us get caught up in our daily frustrations and or sales deals not closing. However, if we take a moment to sit in gratitude for the things in our life that we usually take for granted, amazing things happen. Take a moment to listen to this quick video where Melissa talks about The Power of Gratitude, Giving and Receiving, and The Law of Energy!

Have a great week!

Scale 1-10 Strategy in Sales

Happy New Year!

Since most people try to avoid confrontation, sales people have the challenge of continually moving the sales forward even in awkward situations.  When deals stall out or are dragging on, try the “Scale of 1-10 Strategy” we talk about here to give clients a doorway to open up and keep moving the deal forward.

73 Mind-Blowing Sales Statistics That Will Help You Sell Smarter in 2019

Just read this article by Aja Frost on HubSpot.  Loved the insights.  I can see where a lot of these Stats are valid for outside sales and some are more focused on inside sales.  However, here are a handful that stuck out to me that shows things keep shifting and we need to keep our pulse on the market as we head into 2019:

Sales Prospecting Statistics

#10  It takes an average of 18 calls to actually connect with a buyer.

Sales Email Statistics

#19  The average person deletes 48% of the emails they receive every day. This task takes them just five minutes.

#27  Don’t just provide information — request some, too. Emails that contain one to three questions are 50% likelier to get replies than emails without any questions.

Sales Call Statistics
