Slam’s Sale’s Tips – 101-200 – The heart of selling!

     Dear Guts is The Key Reader. I will introduce these tips with some helpful hints on applying the first five.

I love to sell picture

     Tip 1 – Fix you and selling will work better.  You can not climb a mountain, without a vision for the top. Even so, selling can not occur in any threshold of proficiency and accomplishment; without a dimension of a positive outlook. If you practice what Zig Ziglar called “stinking thinking;” you can not expect to have high achievement in selling.

Healthy Balance

     Tip 2 – It’s not about you. It’s about them. – Selfishness and hedonism may seem like they benefit you in the short run in the selling endeavor. But in the long run, they do not. Over and over again, sales pro’s fail and fall because they do not develop and keen interest in the well-being of their customer. The sales rep. who only thinks about himself becomes transparent in his self-serving motives. And this transparent shallowness can ruin the effectiveness of his or her selling. Think about your customer and a strange but true thing will happen in your sales career; it will benefit you.

    Tip 3 & 4- See what is going on around you. Be, where you are.  – We can not possibly respond to what we do not recognize. Sales people are so tempted to jump into their pitch; that they never discover what is important to their customer. Practice active observation and active listening. If you will get truly interested in your customer. You may find that they get truly interested in buying from you.

     Tip 5 – Half-heartedness does not work in sales. – Are you giving your best to your position and performance? Are you? Motivation is like bathing. It must take place often. We can not live in the sales dimension off of yesterday’s laurels. We must produce today. Get your heart into the game. When it matters to you, it is more likely to matter to your customer.
