If I surveyed 100 business owners and asked them what they felt their biggest challenge was in their business, my bet is that 95% of them would say sales.
And I get that. After all, the statistics gathered by the SBA and IRS tell the story that roughly 90% of the 23 million non-employer firms in the country are making less than $50,000 a year in gross receipts.
Translation: They can’t sell.
And, it’s not entirely their fault. After all, most non-employers became such out of necessity or out of a love for something someone told them people would pay for. Most lack business acumen and since nothing happens until somebody sells something, well, I think you get my point.
Over the next 7 weeks, I have a gift for you. I’ve decided (just a few hours ago) to create a 7-part impromptu video training series to help you Tighten Your Sales Game. So every week for the next seven weeks, I will post a new video on sales or a sales related topic (actually all business building is related to sales.) This training is designed to offer some real content and real strategy that if you heed it, will get you more sales. And it’s my compliments to you.
Check out the first video now: Sales is NOT a Dirty Word
If you watched the video, then you know that I promised you an assignment.
So, here’s Your Assignment:
In order to stop treating sales like it’s a dirty word, you’re going to have to make a mindset shift. So, this week, I want you to journal about what would change in your approach to sales if you looked at sales as service (no different than the service you get when out at a restaurant)? How would you show up to the conversation? Share your a-ha moment in the comments below or on my Facebook page.
Enjoy the video and the exercise? Well, there’s more where that came from when you join me for my BRAND NEW 2-day intensive, aptly called, Sell the Incredible: Tighten Your Sales Game. To learn more and secure one of the 30 seats available, visit http://www.SellTheIncredible.com.
