Everyday salespeople do things that make their job a little bit more difficult than it needs to be. Check out this video to see what I mean!
This doesn’t mean it doesn’t work. I don’t mean they fail. Merely that it isn’t the easiest, most efficient, or most effective way of being successful.
Like trying to record this video while simultaneously standing on my head.
I practiced for weeks memorizing the intro AND being able to do the headstand while speaking.
Then although I did it, it wasn’t as easy as being filmed while standing up right, which isn’t exactly easy… kind of like sales.
What are you doing that puts little obstacles in your own way?
Here are three things that are important for inside salespeople to remember:
1. If it takes you more than 5 minutes to do on your own – ask for help. There is a point where self-reliance becomes self-defeating! Ask for help before you get there.
2. Get into the habit of try ONE new sales concept, idea, or techniques – consistently. Make yourself better at your craft every day.
3. Because a strategy, tactic, or behavior earned someone else a big deal – it may OR may not work for you. Evaluate it, decide if it fits into your sales style, then choose if you want to have it be your next ‘new’ thing to try.
Think what you could accomplish, if you took the time to find a simpler, more effective, efficient way to do EVERYTHING.
