This is how everyone learns to sell

 

Do you want to boost your sales without such dubious measures like price discounts? Then invest in your company's sales skills. 

Most of the organizations I see operate in sales at perhaps 50 percent of their potential, with many even being far below. 

The reason is often that management doesn't see (or want to believe) the connection between sales skills and success. Most B2B sales people know more about the technology of their products than how to communicate their value to their customers. Change that! 

Here are three ideas on how you can immediately increase your team's sales success: 

  1. Train copywriting, i. e. the ability to write and communicate convincing texts. There's a difference between saying,"Our product is based on 10 years of research" and "Our customers use our product to cut costs by an average of 20 percent". Just as example.

You could at least double your sales!

 

Yes, I know this headline sounds cheeky, and yet, I believe it is true for almost all businesses. When I make such statements to my clients, the reaction is almost always two-fold: First, they don’t believe that it’s possible. And second, when they start thinking that it might be possible then only with the help of external circumstances, lots of resources, or sheer luck. 

Why are most of us so sure that our limiting beliefs are truer than an outrageous assumption? 

Simple answer: because we are accustomed to limited thinking.This – as explained often in my blog articles – is a survival instinct, deeply rooted in our subconscious mind. One of the key reasons for coaching is to break these limiting beliefs, which are virtually always nothing but… beliefs! 

Let me challenge you today by the introductory question and give you 3 key ideas of how you can double your sales in almost any market, with almost any product, and with keeping the...
