I couldn’t be more excited to talk to my guest on this episode, Jeffrey Gitomer, one of my all time favorite sales experts. Jeffrey has written 13 books on the art & science of sales and personal development, including the all time best selling sales book, The Little Red Book of Selling: 12.5 Principles of Sales Greatness. Join us now as Jeffrey and I discuss a range of topics including: social selling, smarter alternatives to cold calling prospects, what the value proposition is really about, what it means to be a true value provider, why close rates are so low, how to train consistency, and why salespeople place blame rather than take responsibility.        

 

 

KEY TAKEAWAYS

[3:13] Jeffrey says social selling & inside selling have to be very harmonious in today’s world to make a genuine contact.   

[4:58] Jeffrey shares alternative strategies to cold calling that sales managers can advocate to develop prospects.

[8:03] The value proposition is really about what happens after the sale. And that’s in the mind of the customer not in the mind of the salesperson!

[13:40] Why are close rates still so low? Because salespeople don’t have enough relationship quality with their prospective customer.

[17:03] How to train consistency with your sales team

[19:45] Andy and Jeffrey discuss the issue of salespeople placing blame vs. taking responsibility.

[25:05] “Too many people are trying to shorten the sales cycle by not getting to know the other person.”
