  8. Build & Protect Your Confidence By Shamus Brown
    I can remember the first time that I had to get new customers from a cold start. I was a sales rep at IBM.

  10. Voice Mail That Sells
    As a business owner, I receive my share of sales calls in a given month.

  11. Are You A Negotiating Nightmare?
    Years ago I read this quote: The definition of PAIN: 'The difference between what you HAVE and what you WANT.' Over the many years of being in sales I see 2 kinds of people when it comes to negotiating. 1) The person who doesn't budge an inch. 2) The person who gives away everything to get the deal. I would much rather you believe in your product/service as compared to giving away discounts/freebies etc. with no regard to your own value. As we all know... reality usually lies somewhere in the …

  14. The Allure of Antique Store Fixtures By Jimmy Sturo
    They say if you wait long enough, a style you liked in almost any genre will come back. This is as true for retail store fixtures as it is for clothing or styles of music. The look of the 1960s came back strong in the early 90s and now it appears as if the 1970s are enjoying a renaissance. This rule of thumb applies not only to the style and type of merchandise being sold, but also to the look and feel of the retail establishments selling them. A good way for a new retail business to save mone…

  25. "Do we have enough qualified meetings to make our revenue plan?"
    Sales and executive management love to focus on closing sales - and rightfully so; if deals don't close, revenue has no chance of being recognized. But while all of the focus and attention is on closing deals and getting business 'done' this month and quarter, our real emphasis should be on getting more qualified meetings - more qualified meetings than necessary to meet revenue expectations. If you don't get more face time with real prostpects, you don't get more sales, you don't get more reven…
