You Wouldn’t Think…

Standard

You wouldn’t think you’d get farther by doing things that feel weird or counterintuitive to sales, but you will.

  • You wouldn’t think you’d get farther by asking “Can you help me?” vs. “Can you tell me?” but you will.  People like to help people more than they like to serve people.

 

  • You wouldn’t think you’d get farther by fumbling your voicemail message than by delivering it perfectly, but you will.  People like real imperfect people more than real perfect people.

 

  • You wouldn’t think you’d get farther by not trying to close on every call vs. saying “Let me walk away and think about this” but you will.  People like people who listen and think more than they like people who just listen and solve.

 

  • You wouldn’t think you’d get farther by saying “Thank you for your business” vs. “Is there anything else I can help you with today?” but you will.  People more than ever; remember being appreciated rather than the check to see if their wallet was still open.

 

  • You wouldn’t think you’d get farther having a catalogue, a brochure or a handwritten letter in your tool belt vs. just landing pages, links and emails, but you will.  People like to do more than just surf sometimes; people also like to swim.

 

Till next time,

Grow The Business.
