  1. Being The Best - What Does It Take?

  3. Do Your Customers Buy On Price Alone? By James Yuille
    Here are four simple things you can do to take price out of the equation!It’s frustrating when people appear to be focused on price alone.

  4. The Fine Line Between Persistence - and Stalking!
    In sales, there's a fine line between persistence and stalking. In my experience, with the exception of prospects who are already in the sales cycle, that line is usually drawn at about once every 6 weeks. So given that you only have once every 6 weeks to make a direct impression on your 'B' and 'C' list prospects, how can you make sure those follow-up calls have the greatest possible impact? This week, let's go back to the science of sales, and dissect a typical opening call that I hear 80% of …

  7. Become Fearless Doing the Doing
    There are some things in life I'd much rather not be doing and this slightly tongue-in-cheek article is about one of them. This one thing is about getting out there in front of hundreds of thousands of commuters handing out advertising leaflets. How embarrassing! What if someone recognized me?! In the past I held positions of responsibility and always had others who did the doing things for me. I used to supervise personnel; I tended to be in charge of my own work unit, and my own time. I once …


  8. Freelancers, Subcontractors, & Creative Folks: Stop Charging By the Hour & Make More Money! By Kirstin Carey
    One of the biggest challenges with a creative business is getting paid what you are worth. The root of the problem isn't that the client doesn't have the money and it isn't that the client isn't willing to pay you what you are worth. The root of the problem is how you are charging and how you are creating value in the mind of the client.First, you must create a business based on value pricing and not hourly pricing. The number one worst way to charge (and most creative businesses are chargin…


  9. Cold Calling: Is It Dead?
    Cold Calling is dead. That's right, it is dead. It is interruption marketing to the highest degree. Consumers are tuning out interruption marketing and the advertising message is not getting through. So why do you continue to cold call? It is probably because your sales manager tells you that you should. And why does he tell you to cold call? It is probably because the sales consultant that your company spent thousands of dollars on advised that the staff should increase their cold calls to inc…


  10. Words Sell
    They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. While this may be true if the picture is a schematic of a complicated gizmo you're trying to put together, it is hardly the case when it comes to your ads. An image should be used to get attention, and it should draw people in to read the words used in the ad. Words sell - not pictures. Each word used in the ad should lead the person to the desired outcome. In the case of a classified ad, the desired outcome should be to have them request more i…

Non-verbal communication, including body language, can be a powerful sales tool if one is able to understand its signals. However, when you realize that the human body can perform over 700,000 unique movements, the idea of comprehending all those signals would seem like an unrealistic endeavor.

  13. Another Warm Lead By Wendy Weiss
    Saturday morning, I sat in my pajamas, sipping strong, black coffee and petting Ms. Kitty Cat. The telephone rang.

  15. How To Dramatically Improve Sales Closing Ratios By Virden Thornton
    A closing question asks for a final decision. A trial-closing question is one that asks prospects for an opinion. Trial-closings should be non-threatening questions that ask how your prospective customer feels about what you have presented.
