Click the video below to hear about The Scale of 1-10 Strategy:
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.
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:
As a sales professional do you have what it takes? Do you have G.R.I.T.? As I continue to travel the Globe, I realize we should be asking this question more often.
GUTS:This means – personal courage and determination; toughness of character. We have to be brave and courageous to attack each day with the right mindset and ability to be BOLD. As I worked with another sales team last week filled with Major Account and Named Account reps, I am reminded once again that no matter what level we are at (new or tenured), we have to make this conscious choice every day. We will continue to battle frustrations from within our own organization and frustrations with reaching the right decision makers and influencers. We have to be creative and constantly evolve in changing times. Just because it is uncomfortable, or “you have always done it another way,” doesn’t mean you don’t have it in you to stretch and see the magic outside of your comfort zone. We ask our prospects and clients to make a change with us every day. So why are we so unwilling to change and evolve ourselves? So we have to ask, do we have the GUTS to strive on? Do we have the determination to Be Bold in our approach?
As we all have seen, there is a BUZZ around Social Selling today. It isn’t new, it’s just the focus in a heavy way today because just implementing traditional ways of prospecting is NOT working anymore. One of the BIG things we talk about here at MWI is the importance of using a “Combination Approach.”
This is where we believe using this proven formula of Social Selling + Phone Prospecting (with a strategy) + In the field Prospecting (when applicable by industry) + Email Strategies + Voicemail Techniques = SUCCESS!!!
All of us who have been selling for a lifetime (it seems) and those that are just entering into this exciting career of consulting, know (or soon will) that Sales is not easy. A career in Sales and to MASTER the Art, takes time, dedication, persistence and CONSTANT learning. You see “Change” is inevitable. It is the constant you can count on. So as Consultants, we have to watch, listen and learn what is working today and what is not working today. This ebbs and flows.
What that means is what worked for us even 6 months ago, may not work for us today. What stopped working today may work again in 1 year. You see, processes that become saturated usually become less effective (example phone calling). However, as our profession starts to shift heavily into Social Selling since our phones are being screened at a much higher rate today . . .
