Prospecting Sales Training
You don’t have to make 100 dials to your prospect to get their attention 🙋🏻‍♂️

It’s insanity that anyone would want to think this way to begin with.

Imagine if it took you 100 dials to get in touch with a friend or colleague just to ask them a question... that’s literally what you’re doing when you prospect with this mindset of “dial, dial, dial and set an appointment.”

B2B Sales Prospecting Sales Training
Shut up and listen to your prospect because it will make you more money.

As a salesperson, you should shut up and listen to your prospect because it will make you more money.

This is fundamentally wrong in every sense of the word.

First of all...

If thats your thought process, the question's you'll be asking will reflect a self-serving motive.

Second of all...

Not practicing an altruistic form of active listening will lead to objectio...

Before you talk about talk tracks, personalization at scale, competitors, playbooks, objection handling, enablement, training, buyer personas, battle cards, SPIFFs, PIPs, activi...

How do you choose your sales information wisely?

Consume your sales information wisely.

There’s an overload of information and I realize I’m contributing to that problem.

Hopefully, you find value in these posts, if not, it’s ok to lie to me this time.

Here are a few things I’ve done to make sense of the noise.

1. What am I looking to learn about? Focus on one topic at a time

2. Who are the subject matter exper...

Sales Mindset Sales Training
Do you have 5-10 years of experience?

Or do you have one year of experience repeated 5-10 times.

This. Right. Here.

I love this quote/question.

The sales industry is rampant with the 1 year experience repeated year after year type mindsets.

Reps and leaders say things like...

I know how to do this.

I have my own way.

I'm a natural.

I don't need to read/practice/review calls/etc

Hungry to know HOW to sell & need more than just a few tricks?

When Manny Medina  was asked about Sales methodology on the Flip the Script tour, he said “Well, if it doesn’t scale, it means nothing”... And I’ll never forget it.

Things change in sales: new hooks, openers, tricks, gimmicks: ways to make your prospects feel heard, understood, ask tons of questions to make them feel warm & fuzzy..

But one thing that doesn...
