Jan 6 – He Got Me At Hello – I Couldn’t Wait To Say Good-Bye =============================================

When I had an office, way back when, a sales rep came in one day and asked me what business I was in.  I told him, and he asked if I had a few minutes to see whether a service he was offering might be able to help me.

I liked that…  Nice start…  He got me at hello!

However, in two minutes I was yawning! So what wasn’t working here? And what could have been done that would have kept me on the edge of my seat.

Jan 20 – Because I’m Fat, I Smoke and I Drink Too Much =============================================

I was out having fun in the evening with some of the staff at an annual conference I was speaking at, when we were joined by a couple of people from another event. They discovered the company was a healthcare company.

Mistaking me for a distributor one of them somewhat aggressively challenged me with the question:

“So why should I buy your healthcare products?”

Jan 27 – What To Do After Your Sales Conversation Falls Apart =============================================

Ever had one of those times when you couldn’t answer a question, or you slipped back into your old habit of doing a fire hose presentation and your potential partner/customer moved away from you?

Here’s an exercise that will turn that kind of call into future great ones!

Have a peaceful and prosperous week…
