Catapulting Commissions with Anthony Garcia

Welcome back to the Catapulting Commissions Podcast with your host, Anthony Garica. Our guest today is Scott Leese, one of the top startup sales leaders in the country. Through domestic and international consulting as a strategic advisor, he has trained an army of salespeople and sales leaders thousands strong.    Scott focuses on helping businesses put scalable systems in place to grow from $0-$25 million APR. He says it's absolutely crucial to lock in on your ideal customer profile and stop wasting time chasing accounts you cannot serve in the right way. From there, it's about being able to articulate what's going on in their lives, which turns into credibility, which grows to trust. Get that ICP out of your head and onto paper so the systems you use to build credibility with that client can be replicated.    A lot of the pushback that happens when creating a process can certainly slow things down, but just like a formula 1 racer slows down before a turn so they don't crash into a wall, businesses do the same. Everything needs to be broken down and documented, so when you bring in a new cohort of sales reps, everything blasts off.    Retaining top sales talent is all about helping them achieve their goals. It's a lot less likely for somebody to leave when they are hitting their target and overperforming. Then, you've got to provide coaching, training, development, and mentorship. They want to learn about things that are pertinent to their life, so provide those kinds of training opportunities to people and have an inclusive and supportive kind of culture and environment. Today's climate requires increased flexibility.    Scott co-founded the Surf & Sales conference, an anti-establishment, small event in Costa Rica. There, you spend 6 hours or so a day with like-minded people in leadership and sales training sessions, and the rest of the time you're resting and surfing. It's about a small community supporting each other, regardless of where they are in their career.    Your job as a sales manager, Scott says, is to remove barriers for your sales reps. It could be product feature requests, rebuttals, demos, you name it. Your job is to make their job easier for them to succeed. Your goal is to get them to where they want to go next in their lives.  https://scottleeseconsulting.com/

Five Misconceptions Most Salespeople Struggle With About Mindset | Donald Kelly - 1524

The Sales Evangelist

Many salespeople have a misconstrued mindset about mindset itself, hindering success and costing more money. In today's episode of The Sales Evangelist, Donald discusses five common sales misconceptions and how to overcome them. So start the new year by overcoming these common misconceptions. Myth #1: Mindset is a soft skill and can't be proven to result. Yes, motivational things are important and cool. But pep talk motivation has a purpose - it helps you perform. If your mind is game-ready, the performance will follow. Mindset isn't just your motivation; it's the way you think. Motivation is only a tiny (but necessary) part of that. Myth #2: I don't need mindset, I can just hustle and complete tactics. When you get to a certain point, “hustling” only gets you so far. People who shatter records, earn promotions, and go beyond their current limit need more than hustle; they need the proper mindset. Research shows 80% of our daily thoughts are negative, and we do this to keep ourselves in our comfort zones.  Mindset training teaches you to combat and subvert those subconscious thoughts. Myth #3: I don't need mindset training to strengthen my mind. Even the most mentally tough person on Earth has another level they can reach. People sell themselves short to avoid disappointment down the line. But you can definitely do more. And mindset coaches help with that. Myth #4: Mindsets are an either-or proposition Mindset by Carol Dweck establishes the dichotomy of a fixed or growth mindset. But the truth is, it's not an either-or situation. You can be both! We have thoughts on both sides of the scale, between overcoming negativity in the workplace to our goals and career aspirations.  Myth #5: Anyone can do anything Okay, this sounds pessimistic. But it's simply reality. You can't grow wings. You can't breathe in space. And, most likely, you won't make the NBA. There are things you can't or shouldn't do. Understanding this doesn't mean you have a bad mindset. Instead, it encourages you to shift your focus to things you have control, which allows you to see greater results.

Sales Challenges in a Fully Remote or Hybrid Environment | Richard White - 1523

The Sales Evangelist

Remote and hybrid work environments can be challenging. Back-to-back Zoom calls quickly blur together, and many salespeople find that, even with note-taking, there are gaps in recollection when the follow-up meeting arrives. In today's episode of The Sales Evangelist, Donald is joined by Richard White to discuss his sales app, Fathom, which helps address and overcome these sales issues.  Salespeople juggle note-taking, conducting conversations, and remembering essential elements of meetings for later discussions. Because of this huge workflow, it's easy for things to fall through the cracks. So, Richard built the free app Fathom for Zoom that records, transcribes, and (most importantly) highlights key moments of calls so you can focus on having an actual conversation. In a typical call, only 15% of the conversation is note-worthy. That means 85% of the conversation probably isn't very important. And that 85% drowns out the 15% pretty quickly. As a salesperson, you're routinely giving pitches, answering questions, and overcoming similar objections across clients and prospects. Remembering the different results of these similar conversations gets increasingly difficult as you have more meetings. Notes are incredibly helpful to help prep before a follow-up call. Rather than stress about what was discussed and where you left off, Fathom provides a short highlight reel with that 15% of important information. How can this app and system help a remote sales rep or leader? Fathom's video highlights are compiled with a sales methodology. Timeline, pain points, and other noteworthy topics are automatically flagged to revisit later. Zoom has cloud recording, but you often don't get the recording until thirty minutes after the call. Because Fathom is real-time, so you get it immediately. Several platforms provide helpful coaching metrics, but that's only after the call. Fathom's real-time recording alerts you during the call if you've been monologuing, helping provide the best experience possible for the prospect.   The goal is to perform smarter, not harder. The main takeaway from this episode? Zoom calls don't have to be as stressful as they are.

Three Mistakes Salespeople Make When Setting New Year Goals | Donald Kelly - 1520

The Sales Evangelist

It's easy to make simple mistakes when setting goals for the new year, especially if you quickly fall back into the same habits as you did the previous year. So on today's episode of The Sales Evangelist, Donald discusses the three mistakes salespeople make when setting goals and how you can prevent those same pitfalls. And happy birthday to Donald's sister, Jessica!  1. Don't set huge goals without a plan. A Harvard study revealed that people aren't likely to succeed in huge goals. The key is to set micro-goals that are far easier to obtain and make you happier. The 12-Week Year concept is powerful because it does precisely that - breaks down an overarching goal into smaller, easier-to-obtain segments. Whether it's to make a million dollars in sales or lose a certain amount of weight, micro-goals are far easier to obtain than a massive goal. 2. Be more descriptive when setting goals 65% of the population are visual people, and it's natural for humans to think in pictures. If you have a goal in mind, making it descriptive allows you to visualize and thus better understand why the goal is important in the first place.  If your goal is to hit a quota, what are the benefits of hitting that quota? Associate the benefits and results of the goal with the goal itself to overcome objections you might create for yourself. To learn more about the benefits and how to engage in a descriptive mindset, check out the Sales Evangelist Sales Mindset Training Program.  3. Set a goal, not a dream. It takes discipline to accomplish a goal. And you might have habits that are in direct conflict with achieving a goal. You can't just wish on a plan - set it up and designate steps to accomplish that goal to see it come true! 4. Of course, a bonus: Believe in yourself! Whether in personal or professional goals, many people don't believe in their ability to reach them. Affirmations are a great way to affirm your beliefs in yourself. The problem - they're typically too vague, Keep them in the present tense, keep them visual, and keep them descriptive. It's a great way to force yourself to believe in yourself and your goals.

Relationships are hard. Whether they are romantic, at work, in your family or with friends, no one escapes from having to face problems or misunderstandings. However, in a professional sales environment, dealing with issues, especially with your clients, can be particularly sensitive, and not knowing how to approach them can end up in a “breakup” and is the last thing we want to see. In this last episode of 2021, Alex Whitlock and Russell Stephenson talk about the ramifications and consequences of having a big problem with a client. In this Killer Media Sales chapter, Alex shares a personal experience where he explains how the small things are those that can cause a problem with your client relationship, but how “big gestures” and the use of common sense are what will solve them. He explains that the key factor to solve a misconception on the client side is acknowledging the problem, and that in letting your client know that you understand why they are unhappy is a very disarming way to approach it. Alex highlights that this has to be done sincerely. He also describes how he approached a very difficult situation doing this, and warns the listener to not let their ego take over the circumstance. He adds that the worst thing you can do is try to “justify” things as you'll build up many barriers to negotiate effectively. The pair also talk about why making a sincere apology, and showing that you're there to reconcile the differences while recognising and acknowledging that something went wrong (if it did) will help you find common ground to build, and to move forward with your client. A great episode to end the year and a must listen to all sales people, listen now!

How Acting Skills can Improve Your Virtual Selling Capabilities per Julie Hansen, Ep #278

When salespeople were forced to switch from face-to-face selling to virtual selling, they were forced to learn a different medium of communication. What you used to be able to communicate with your face, body language, energy, etc. has to be squeezed into a small square on a computer screen. Your customer doesn't have the context of face-to-face. It requires learning new skills. In this episode of Sales Reinvented, Julie Hansen shares how acting skills can benefit a salesperson and help them succeed in this virtual reality we now live in.  Outline of This Episode [0:43] The difference between selling face-to-face and selling virtually [2:38] How businesses can improve virtual selling [4:47] Julie's virtual selling blueprint [6:54] Attributes + characteristics that make a great virtual seller [9:34] Tools, techniques, and strategies to improve virtual sales  [11:55] Julie's virtual selling dos and virtual selling don'ts [16:07] Get the virtual training you need to succeed in your role The difference between selling face-to-face and selling virtually Julie has a background in acting. Most actors/actresses start their careers doing live theatre. You can see your audience and what lands—or doesn't—and adjust accordingly. Virtual selling is similar to moving to on-camera work.  When Julie moved from live audiences to camera, she did what she did for theatre. But the director pointed out she wasn't looking in the right place, she was out of frame, and was distracting. She learned she had to get new training to communicate in the new medium. Salespeople need to acknowledge that and learn new skills so they can communicate in a virtual environment.  How businesses can improve virtual selling Organizations learned that they can be more cost-effective doing sales calls virtually. Plus, McKinsey found in their research that more than three-quarters of B2B buyers prefer remote interaction versus face-to-face. You need to adapt to the new reality. Most organizations throw tools and technology at their salesforce but haven't realized that communication differences need to be addressed. How does the camera read behavior? What about your eye contact and facial expressions? Are you communicating what you need to?  You have to learn to connect one-on-one on camera because sales are all about building relationships. People buy from people they like and they feel confident with. So you have to learn to establish those relationships through a camera. That's where the growth needs to be. If you can do that, you'll rise to the top and stand out.  Attributes + characteristics that make a great virtual seller Julie believes that the qualities needed to succeed are the same, whether in person or virtually. You need to be credible, keep your word, be authentic, show empathy, be an active listener, etc. But those qualities are often lost in a virtual exchange, so you have to adjust the way you communicate them. In a face-to-face conversation, if someone stared at your shoes the whole time, you'd feel like they weren't interested. But it happens on video all the time. You may be looking at the customer's image, screen, tools, etc. You need to understand that the quality of active listening requires you to behave differently. You have to know when to look at the camera directly. Your fave must communicate the emotions you think it is. What tools, techniques, and strategies does Julie recommend to improve how you portray yourself on video? Listen to learn more!  Julie's virtual selling dos and virtual selling don'ts Julie shared some amazing tips to help you improve your skills: You have to record yourself and you have to review it so you know how your customer sees you. You have to bring more energy to a virtual call because the camera takes some away. You can be natural and comfortable but you can't come across as laid back and low energy. Get yourself in a good high-energy state before jumping into a conversation. Make sure that you are managing your tools and technology and engaging your customer. Salespeople tend to go into monologues because customers aren't responding. Recognize that people are more passive on video and engage far less. You have to work harder to foster engagement.  Don't stare at your customers' image when they're talking—look at the camera. But if you're looking at the camera, how do you read body language? There are different techniques, one of which is using peripheral vision to glance at their image.  Don't assume that your customer will answer you right away. Give them a second to respond. If you ask and answer your own questions, you've trained them that they don't have to respond. Silence is uncomfortable, but you have to allow them time to process and answer.  Get the virtual training you need to succeed  Julie got a call from an experienced enterprise sales rep who was a top biller before things moved virtually. He felt like he wasn't connecting with his customers and that he had lost his superpower. When Julie worked with him on camera, it was obvious his personality wasn't coming across. He felt scripted and his discomfort was obvious. She worked with him on improving his eye contact, body language, energy, and what his face was portraying. After working together, he went back to a customer where he had been shut out of a big deal. He put together a compelling and engaging personalized video that got him back in the running.  You have to admit that you don't know what you don't know and get the help you need to adapt to this new environment. Don't sit and suffer in silence. Stand up for yourself and get the training that you need to succeed.  Resources & People Mentioned These eight charts show how COVID-19 has changed B2B sales forever Connect with Julie Hansen Connect on LinkedIn Follow on Twitter Connect With Paul Watts  LinkedIn Twitter  Subscribe to SALES REINVENTED Audio Production and Show notes by PODCAST FAST TRACK https://www.podcastfasttrack.com

Catapulting Commissions with Anthony Garcia

Welcome back to the Catapulting Commissions Podcast with your host, Anthony Garica. This week, Anthony is talking with Brandon Fluharty, a former pro soccer player turned sales veteran. He's a VP at LivePerson and founder of Be Focused. Live Great. Today he's sharing how he found success and how he's passing that on to other top-tier sales professionals.    Brandon got his start in sales in an unconventional, non-dedicated sales role developing talent of young soccer players on Long Island. From there, he recognized that he had to have an abundance mentality to make things work, so he supplemented his income learning to DJ. That quickly transformed into a sales role, where he started to build his sales career.    It's all about creating opportunities and being excited to learn. Brandon insists on falling in love with the process. You have to hustle and have a sort of grit that doesn't allow you to stop pursuing knowledge. Sales is a craft, and you have to treat it like one. That means putting in the time and effort to improve.    Brandon is a SaaS sales guru. He got into the space by recognizing, as a marketing and ad salesperson, that things were going digital. So, he adapted and brought his print and television customers into the digital age. He then worked his way up through to Fortune 100 companies. He took a strategic step backward by selling print ads to grow into something much, much bigger.    The truth is, you're either learning or you're earning. Brandon was learning about technology but realized he could be earning more by bringing this information into a solutions environment. He left his now comfortable position to dive into the AI space, understanding that he would be in on the ground floor of a massive market. The moral is, complacency is going to halt progress.    There are seven steps Brandon looks to when he thinks about his catapult from 200k to 1.5 million in a short period of time. First, get in the right environment to close big deals. Take bets on yourself and have the abundance mindset. Two, be strategic about your account lists. Work within your expertise! Think about companies that will move fast. The third step is this: when you do this, welcome imposter syndrome–it means you're doing something right. You DO deserve a seat at the table. Four, create a standard that no one else can deliver. Take research seriously! Step five is building a transformational mindset–elevate your sales potential. Six: you can't do this alone. Put your team in a position where they aren't doing everything themselves, but free you up to hand the sale off when you need to tag someone in. Finally, step seven is about developing a personal operating system. Think of yourself as a mini CEO and operate in a way that integrates your work and life.    https://befocusedlivegreat.com/ https://brandonfluharty.com/ https://www.linkedin.com/in/brandonfluharty/

If your company limits your commissions, maybe it's time to find a new job to break through and get to the next level.  The Billion Dollar Secret by Rafael Badziag: This guy interviewed billionaire people and asked them what it takes to make a billion dollars. You may not get a billion dollars in sales revenue yourself, but why can't you get six or seven figures? Get past limits you set yourself to unlock more money for you. Salespeople reap what they sow - focusing on the ideal customer who makes more significant purchases can be what brings onto the 7-figure level. The 12 Week Year by Brian Moran: Salespeople are super productive between October and December because of the shorter quarter. But why can't you have this same urgency throughout the year? The 12 Week Year breaks down overarching goals into smaller, 12-week-long goals that help you achieve whatever goals you've set for yourself. And now, the bonus book: Donald's Sales Planner! (Yes, this is a shameless plug.) When searching for a sales planner, Donald realized those in the market weren't what he wanted.  Instead of a reactive planner, he wanted one that kept him focused on his goals and moving forward. His planner encourages you to focus on tasks that directly correlate to success by utilizing the 12-week concept framework. It features a performance tracker at the end of each day or week. It is a 3-month planner, promoting focus on each quarter, and features a performance tracker for each day and week to ensure you're on track to reach quotas. Even if you don't use this planner, plan! Spend 30 minutes each day planning the next day to see more success in the new year.  To order the planner for the start of 2022, visit thesalesevangelist.com/salesplanner.

While we might be in a post-pandemic world, the myriad of zoom calls is here to stay. But, for any professional, creating and maintaining professional virtual relationships is more complex than in-person. In today's episode of The Sales Evangelist, Donald is joined by actor, author, and founder of Selling On-Video Master Class Julie Hansen to learn how to better engage our virtual audiences.  When transitioning from theatre to camera, she had to practice communication. When everyone went virtual, Julie noticed other people struggling (as she was) to communicate through a camera. So, she created her masterclass to teach skills salespeople could apply to their virtual sales techniques. She also wrote an Amazon bestselling book, Look Me In the Eye, to further educate people in virtual communication. Communicating with a client whose video is off can be challenging. The value of having your video on is huge. Even if the prospect is unseen, looking at the camera as if they're speaking will create a stronger relationship. Salespeople tend to assume the worst - that the client is bored, disengaged, or not paying attention. And that attitude tends to bring out the worst in the salespeople, resulting in skipping ahead and rushing through content. Visualize the prospect having a great reaction, even if you can't see it, because it encourages you to maintain positive momentum. Resist the urge to watch yourself: Never have your own image on; you'll focus on your faults and be entirely out of the moment. (Remember, It's not a mirror!) While Julie recommends setting your camera as close to the screen or image as possible, remember that humans are precise with eye contact. So even if it's off by only a couple of inches, most people will recognize that. In general, look directly at the camera whenever someone else is speaking. (Yes, it's counterintuitive, but it's true!) How can you better engage with virtual prospects? Break the passive pattern of the virtual call - especially if there's more than one person. When we get in front of a screen, we're trained to be in a receiving mode- looking at something, reading something, or typing something. We aren't usually engaged with other people. To break that, use the power of eye contact. People will feel more compelled to respond when you look at the camera. Whenever you want someone to respond to what you're saying, look directly at the camera (rather than the screen) to indicate you'd like a verbal response. In-person communication utilizes much more body language than we realize. But if your face has nothing to say, why are you on video? Being expressive will help book more meetings. Julie's major takeaway? Don't expect this to be something you'll figure out independently. While you can minimize the importance of these skills, recognize others are perfecting this craft to deliver great virtual communication. And they'll make their customers feel seen and heard.  To contact Julie, follow her on Twitter @acting4sales, LinkedIn (@juliehansensalestraining), or YouTube.  This episode is brought to you in part by Skipio.

Sales is no longer just about persuasion. To be a successful salesperson today, you need to empathize with the person you're selling to. You need to have the ability to understand and share the feelings of the other person. Salespeople who have empathy can connect with others on a personal level, making it easier to establish trust, inspire action, and close deals. In today's episode, I take you through what it feels and how it should instead feel as a customer confronted by a sales professional. I also talk to you about why you need to respect any profession for the service and value they provide for you (and never look down upon them!), how to view your mistakes as learning opportunities, how to serve your customers better through your skills, what makes a good salesperson, and why empathy is important in any profession. You'll also hear me narrate my up-and-down journey through life -- the countless mistakes I made and what they taught me, how I got to a place I wouldn't have imagined sometime back, and how grabbing an opportunity (a Facebook Live) had me leap closer to my dream life and career. Do you go hard on yourself for not closing enough deals? Surely, this episode is for you. 4 Things You'll Learn From This Episode ●  Why we need to view people's professions not just for the money they make out of it but for the VALUE they provide to us ●  As a salesperson, your job is to LEAD your customer to the answer, solve their problem, and not just MAKE SALES. ●  The revenue you generate for others is the answer to anyone questioning your position or ability. ●  If you want to succeed in sales, you'd want to understand your customer and genuinely help them.

Welcome back to the Catapulting Commissions Podcast with your host, Anthony Garica. This week, we're sitting down with Lon Graham, a sales veteran with more than 25 years of sales experience. Using a logical approach to storytelling that combines inspiration with action, Lon will help your team get the sales they want by clearing up confusion and creating real connections.   The old mentality of hardcore, in-your-face sales, is on its way out. It's less about “always be closing” and more about adapting to what your client needs. You want to continue to work with this client, so you have to get a good understanding of what you can do to help advance their work together.    This is a trust game–and it takes doing the work researching your client's business to help accelerate the trust process. Be interested enough to be able to communicate how your product or service fits into what they do. You want to establish credibility with them, and you have to believe you can. In an industry with such high turnover, it can be hard for businesses to offer that trust–they don't even know if you'll be back.    There are a few questions that Lon feels are important when working with a new client. First, find out what they feel they are good at–this will point you in the direction they are facing and understand what they focus on. Second, what is their ideal client? Finally, ask them for a moment where they felt validated and the “this is why I do this” feeling arose. When they dip into those memories, it's energizing and they'll want you back.    It's crucial to make sure you're on the same page as your client. It's as simple as allowing them time to process what you're saying and finding moments to ask “does this make sense?” Have confidence enough to say “I don't know” if you don't. It shows that you want to give them the right answer and allows you to see them again with the information they want to be presented.    You have to hire to fit your culture. That's the first step to combating that high turnover rate. Spend the time necessary to really understand who you're hiring for what position. Secondly, remove as many barriers from your sales team as possible. The more admin work they have to do, the more “in the way” things are from making a living. And always offer recognition!   longraham.com  Lon Graham on LinkedIn

Identify and Overcome Your Gaps To Succeed with Virtual Selling [Tom Pisello], Ep #275

Sales Reinvented

Salespeople are still struggling to adapt to all of the changes that the Covid pandemic has brought about. Virtual selling is still largely at play, with some in-person interaction still sprinkled in. Tom Pisello believes that to adapt, you need to become laser-focused on helping prospects become aware of and solve their problems. To do that, you have to identify your own struggles to become more effective. Tom shares insight into this process in this episode of @SalesReinvented!  Outline of This Episode [0:49] The difference between digital and social selling [3:21] How to succeed with virtual selling [9:32] Tom's virtual selling strategies  [10:59] Attributes and characteristics of a great seller [12:04] Tools, techniques, or strategies to improve virtual sales [14:15] Top 3 virtual selling dos and don'ts [15:17] Foster engagement in virtual sales presentations How to succeed with virtual selling: identify your gaps Sellers are frustrated with how much longer purchasing decisions are taking and how many people are involved in the process. It can be difficult for them to manage. But Tom emphasizes that if you look for what buyers are saying their challenges are, it can be a turning point. When the Rain Group surveyed buyers on what they thought of sellers in the digital environment, four gaps that were recognized: Leading a prospect through a thorough discovery: Don't just show up and throw up and make discovery as part of the process. Give a presentation with an interactive demo.  Mapping solutions to the problems that were identified: Do your best to address the root cause problems that the buyer is facing.  Listening skills: Many sellers don't stop talking. There's a loss of eye contact, talking over the other person, etc. You have to slow your roll in virtual meetings. Don't be afraid to stop early and leave a cliffhanger and time to talk next steps. Making the ROI clear to the buyer: Tom's nickname is “The ROI Guy.” Buyers care about the problem they're solving and the business outcomes you can assure they get. Focus on the outcome you'll give them—not what you're selling. What can your product solve? What can it deliver in terms of quantifiable business value? Make it clear.  How to succeed as a virtual seller How do you present your sellers with discovery guides and interactive presentations? Can you provide your sellers with an interactive diagnostic assessment or a problem/solution guide to use with customers? You have to provide an interactive value assessment tool so sellers can collect data from the customer and do the number crunching to make a business case.  Make sure you're implementing conversational intelligence tools so you don't have to have your head down to take notes. You need a good video presence and the ability to listen more than they talk. So learn how to maintain eye contact on video calls.  When you do talk, you need to ask good in-depth discovery questions that help buyers be introspective. A good seller is armed with good content and tools. They're leveraging dynamic presentations and assessment tools to add value, insight, and guidance.  Tools, techniques, and strategies to improve virtual sales Tom recommends that content enablement groups work to examine PDFs, videos, guides, etc, that are being provided to their salespeople and think about retooling them. Can you make them interactive? Can you click on elements? Customers don't have the patience to sit through a deck. You have to be able to pivot the conversation to what the customer wants to talk about and have content to support it.  Tom loves doing diagnostic assessments to assess a company's maturity and where they are in the journey. You can map out improvements that they'd like to make and give intelligent recommendations. You can benchmark them against peers.  What about business value assessments? What challenges are they facing? What is it costing them? What's the value potential of implementing a solution? What evidence can you share that you can deliver on this? The right tools can make a difference.  What are Tom's virtual selling dos and don'ts? Listen to learn more! Foster engagement in virtual sales presentations Tom once had 16 people in a company's buying committee in a virtual meeting. With a crowd that large, you want to be mindful of who is paying attention. What does everyone care about? The customer was early in their decision-making process. So instead of talking about the solution, Tom mapped a day in the life of their customer's customer and how they helped to overcome their problems. They went into how they could help address the friction this prospect was dealing with in their selling process.  As they walked through the pieces of their sales process with the customer, he got almost everyone on the call to participate. Tom made sure he got input from everyone to make sure everyone was engaged. They took notes on what was important. When they went into the solutions part of the call, they tied back to specific people and pain points.  Tom notes that people can be afraid to speak up in front of their CEO and other executives, so you have to be conscious of the political dynamics within the environment. You can overcome that by calling on specific people to contribute to the conversation and be heard. Above all, spend time walking through discovery with the group and make sure everyone is engaged in the pain-point portion. Be aware of the dynamics that occur and be ready with strategies to engage everyone.  Resources & People Mentioned Huge Gaps in What Buyers Want and Virtual Seller Skills Connect with Tom Pisello Connect on LinkedIn Follow on Twitter Connect With Paul Watts  LinkedIn Twitter  Subscribe to SALES REINVENTED Audio Production and Show notes by PODCAST FAST TRACK https://www.podcastfasttrack.com

This is another episode of #AskJeb where Jeb answers a question, from Justin, a sales leader based in Dallas. Justin asked: "What's the best predictive indicator of a person becoming a sales champion." Sales Champions Are Optimists This is a question that sales leaders all across the globe grapple with because they all want to hire sales champions and build sales champions. The answer is relatively simple, and it's based on studies that have come from numerous places. It comes down to optimism. Salespeople who have a higher degree of optimism tend to become champions, and for good reason. Salespeople face a lot of defeat, a lot of rejection, and so many things can go wrong in sales that salespeople who wallow in that defeat have a tendency to crash and burn pretty quickly. Sales Champs Forget Failure Fast However, the salespeople who forget rejection fast or forget failure fast and see the next yes, the next opportunity around the corner— those are the salespeople who are more likely to be more mentally resilient. They have a stronger ability to make a shift or be more agile. They're the ones that when things go wrong, rather than saying, "Why me? Why is this happening to me?" they're more likely to say, "What am I supposed to learn from this failure? What am I supposed to learn from this defeat?" Therefore, they continue to grow and improve over time. So How Do You Find Salespeople Like That? The key is in your interview process. During the interview, you're looking for that glimmer of optimism. You need to ask questions about what they have done in the past when they faced defeat. Have them give you a specific situation where they failed and what they did next. Create A Winning Atmosphere As a leader, you want to hire people who have a high degree of optimism, but you also want to build that optimism by creating an atmosphere that people want to be in. That's a winning atmosphere that rewards people for the good work that they do by patting them on the back and doesn't beat them up for the things that they do wrong. Instead, it coaches them when they do things that don't work out to get better or to learn from that. Through your coaching and through your leadership, you want to build an environment where you're fostering and nurturing that optimism because optimism is the greatest predictor of a person becoming a sales champion.

Lance Tyson is President and CEO of The Tyson Group, a sales consulting and training firm, and the author of new book Igniting Sales IQ: Driving Sales Confidence During Uncertainty. Today we start by digging into a fact about selling that a lot of salespeople don't recognize, which is that selling takes place in the buyer's mind. We get into why, with the use of technology—the internet, email, marketing automation—there are more salespeople now than there's ever been. As Lance points out, what that means is that certain sales are complex enough that buyers need to have a human involved to help in the buying process. And we dive into why Salespeople need to keep it simple and learn the process of leveraging their EQ (emotional intelligence) so they can start to tip the scales in their favor. Because let's face it, just like a casino, the sales odds are in the buyer's favor.

How to Use Follow Up to Increase Sales Up to 60% | Daphne Thomson - 1512

The Sales Evangelist

Studies show it takes 8-12 touchpoints to convert a prospect to a client, yet many salespeople give up after the first one or two. In today's episode of The Sales Evangelist, Donald interviews Fractional CMO and digital marketing expert Daphne Thomson to learn her strategy for effective sales follow-ups and why you should revitalize your process. First things first, the follow-up is more than just a phone call. A follow-up is a value you provide in that touchpoint, and it should be roughly 80% value and 20% sales. Because 60% of conversions occur only after the 12th touchpoint, you must have a system in place to ensure prospects regularly receive valuable messaging. See the prospect as a person, not just a lead. The connection becomes much more powerful once you relate to them on a human level. Salespeople bring in the business, so you're indirectly responsible for a large part of your team. Hopefully, that drives and motivates you to continue to follow up. To continue to add value to prospects throughout their touchpoints, make sure you place them in the funnel specific to the value they want. The majority of follow-up platforms are similar. She uses Zoho, ActiveCampaign, and MailChimp as follow-up systems, but there are many. So it really depends on your needs. What should an organization do to establish a better follow-up system? Educate yourself. If you can learn these systems, you are educated and have power.  For salespeople, perform a survey to ask people for reviews on platforms or your value messaging. When a salesperson comes to sell their product or service, ask them what platforms they use. Particularly for follow-up platforms, see if they even use their own. Remember, it's not going to happen overnight. This is a process that requires consistency to make effective. If you're worried about reaching out to people too many times, realize those people were likely not going to buy from you in the first place, especially if that's the typical style for your company. Final takeaway? Keep consistent. Remember that 60% of sales aren't made until the 12th touchpoint, so keep at it. Visit www.catchthebeat.ca for a full webinar on the specific funnels you should create for optimal success.

She also hosts weekly small business shows on Clubhouse (@daffer.) This episode is brought to you in part by Skipio. Are you sick of crickets? As a salesperson, the pain of reaching out with phone calls or emails and not receiving a response is real. But all text messaging is not created equal. 85% of people prefer text over email and phone calls because they want to engage in a conversation, not listen to bots.

In Episode 19, we move into the second half of this mini-series tackling the very common (and ugly) reasons that salespeople and sales teams are not as effective as they could be – and, specifically, why they are not viewed like the pros, advisors, experts, consultants, and value-creators they so badly want to be. Buckle up for straight talk and blunt truth as Mike unpacks reasons 5 and 6 of the Ugly 8 reasons… WHY SELLERS GET VIEWED AS AMATEURS, RELEGATED TO VENDOR STATUS & COMMODITIZED: Reason #5 is as counterintuitive as it gets. We don't own our sales process and end up getting viewed as nothing more than order-takers and yes-men/women because we want to be liked. We want to be seen as responsive and easy to work with. We want to demonstrate that we listen well, can follow direction, and that we respect the customer.  That is all wonderful except for one big problem: in many cases defaulting to the customer's requested (or dictated) process does not turn out so well for us…doesn't increase our win-rates, doesn't help set us apart from competition, and honestly, doesn't even ensure we will get the customer what they really need. Sales Friends, if you've come to realize that scoring “obedience” points is not helping you win deals and bring in new business, this episode is for you. Listen as Mike shares his two driving missions as a professional salesperson and encourages you to adopt them as your own. Learn how to own your process and push back when the prospect or their procurement people suggest/dictate a process that neither allows you to bring them the best solution (most value) nor gives you the best chance of winning their business. Reason #6 we get viewed as vendors and commoditized is because we aim too low in the customer organization. As crazy as it sounds, we end up getting commoditized because we sellers become comfortable dealing with lower-level people who treat us as nothing more than a vendor/supplier. Mike shares the dirty little secret of sellers who regularly call on senior management: You know what/who you normally find in the executive suite? Nicer people. Smarter people. People who are looking for value and help solving big business issues! It's often the complete opposite of dealing with lower-level folks who are more concerned with politics, protecting their jobs and existing supplier relationships, negotiating to save a nickel, or trying to avoid more work being put on their desk.

Thanks for tuning into the Catapulting Commissions Podcast with your host, Anthony Garcia. Joining the show this week is Matthew Coatney, seasoned C-level product and technology executive, entrepreneur, advisor, author, and speaker with decades of experience helping business and technology work better together.   Matthew's book, The Human Cloud, is all about the future of work–freelancing, AI, and the automation revolution. This sort of change was thought to happen in 10 years or so but gained incredible relevancy when the pandemic hit and fast-forwarded this transition. Hand-to-hand combat sales–pounding the pavement–is no exception. Matthew believes we will adapt.    Retention and the talent war continues on, and Matthew attributes the turnover to the massively evolving space of sales. The truth is, salespeople will follow the money–that means they will go sell a product that is selling–period. Products that used to have a decade-long cycle now are less than a year.    Automation is a hugely discussed topic in sales, as we know. Where it becomes useful is in spaces where a lot of time is spent and not a lot of outward value is created–things like CRMs and other administrative systems. The problem is introducing these new technologies. It's important to not always try to strive for 100% adoption. It's about incrementally reaching benchmarks. Once you get value, it's in a good place.    Transitioning into sales leadership, especially from a manager to a VP or higher, can be difficult. This is because what you care about changes. You're going from an individual contributor to having to turn an eye towards the longer-term goals. It's easy to get sucked in a micro-managing mentality, but you have to adapt your leadership style to how your team needs to be led. Give people low-risk tasks where they can learn by failing without impacting their overall success.    Freelancing is becoming more and more a part of companies' successes as we move into the future of work. Freelancers are effectively independent contractors with frequent and varying project work. It's often a viable, cost-effective way to get top-level talent.    LINKS   Matthew Coatney on LinkedIn https://www.matthewcoatney.com/

Welcome back to the Catapulting Commissions Podcast with your host, Anthony Garcia. Today's guest is widely regarded as a legend in the sales field. Dan Casetta is an author, podcast host, and rose the ranks to become the most successful field manager in Vector/Cutco history leading the company's growth from $14 million in sales to over $300 million. Now I'm grateful to he runs the company's Western Region, producing over $30 million in sales per year.   Dan got his start selling knives when he was just 17. He cut his teeth in direct sales, knowing that those skills apply to all areas of life.    Dan is an expert at training and retaining the best sales professionals out there. It revolves around culture creation and building a place that's foundation is in belonging. It's easy to quit a job, it's hard to quit a relationship. Things about the job that are hard are suddenly made easier when you have a community supporting you. Building that culture is all about trust. It starts with the small things--being on time, following through, etc. That foundation allows everything else to fall into place. Things like personal growth, positive focus, and the ability to change and adapt through adversity. It's contagious. In a digital age where Zoom is king, it's about engaging people to maintain those aspects.    For those breaking into the sales game, it's about setting and achieving small goals. In addition, building rapport. It doesn't have to be a long-term relationship, but creating a connection is essential. Your salesperson presentation skill are also crucial. Whatever product it is that you're selling, there are key points that must be presented. Taking massive action is critical and sales. You have to be willing to just put yourself in the game, occasionally fail, often struggle, make plenty of mistakes, and learn through that process. And during that time, you have to have the ability to maintain that positive focus. To do that, it takes self-accountability to continue to get better and hone your craft.    Being a successful salesperson and a successful sales leader are similar but in different ways. It's getting people into their own action. It's a mistake to assume that just because you're a great salesperson, you'll be a great manager. You have to be able to paint a vision for your team of what's possible for them so that they set their own goals. As a leader, your goal is to build a long-term relationship with your salespeople. The leader has to have total integrity to their word.  The Spirit of cooperation is where everybody has an abundance mentality. The sharing of support starts with the leader. Outside of that, it's about work ethic. That doesn't mean grinding out 100 hour weeks every week, but it does mean having moments of greatness where you choose to. Developing the next leader is all about recognizing when someone is successful. Let people know what you see in them.    https://dancasetta.com/

And I think organizations that really focus on that end up winning more than they end up losing." - Jennifer Kerr    "When I say selling value, I think it's how does my product, how does my service impact the P&L of the person I'm selling that to whether it's B2B or how does it impact the household that I'm selling this to. To me, that's value selling because you're not starting with price. And if you start with price, you've already lost in the war of price." - Jennifer Kerr    "Price the product based on its value and the value to the customer. And then go value-base sell it. That's transformational for any organization." - Jennifer Kerr      Connect with Jennifer Kerr:       Email: kerrjennifer63@gmail.com  LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/jennifer-kerr63/      Connect with Mark Stiving:       Email: mark@impactpricing.com  LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/stiving/

The Sales Evangelist
Professional Gatekeepers Advice for Connecting with Decision Makers | Natasha Bowles - 1507

The Sales Evangelist

Gatekeepers: the infamous villains of the sales world. Regardless of industry, most high-level executives employ some type of executive assistant or secretary to serve as a gatekeeper. A necessary part of the professional world, these assistants act as a filter that forces salespeople to maintain high standards and thoughtful targeting to pass. In today's episode of The Sales Evangelist, Donald interviews Natasha Bowles, founder of Natasha Bowles Professional Staffing Agency, to learn more about how salespeople should interact with gatekeepers for more successful results.  The main priority of an executive assistant: securing the executive's time.  If Natasha didn't protect her executive's time, salespeople (among others) would occupy all their time. That doesn't mean salespeople are bad. But it does mean she ensures the salespeople she lets pass are prepared and offer a product or service genuinely beneficial to her executive's company. Executives receive 250-1000 emails every day. She is a necessary filter that helps executives find time to do their jobs.  Therefore, as salespeople, you must convince both the executive and the gatekeeper that you're worthy of their time. Get past the virtual inbox - Natasha's tips for email outreach: Natasha automatically discards anything that looks like an email blast- emails containing no information about the company and just discuss the sender's product. To get to the executive, show initiative, research the target company and show how you can help solve a problem. It's not just personalizing the email; it's demonstrating understanding of the target and what you can offer them. It's basic human decency, but still applicable: be respectful. Gatekeepers will notes a dismissive or demanding salesperson. And, if they need that product or service, the gatekeeper will look elsewhere. In 2018, Natasha was tasked with finding an alarm system, water cooler, and other aspects for a new building. The man she was looking to buy from refused to talk to her, insisting on interacting with her executive at every stage of the buying journey. Natasha ultimately ended the partnership with his company because he refused to work with her, and she found a different supplier. Salespeople have a long-standing perception that they need to speak with the decision-maker. But the decision-maker doesn't necessarily mean the top-level executive. It's whoever is in charge of the decision (I know, it's shocking.) Develop (and maintain) a relationship with the gatekeeper to be effective. Find a balance between demonstrating product knowledge without going over people's heads. Don't explain hyper-specific nuances, but emphasize what sets your product apart from the competition. Maintaining a relationship is just as important as the initial sale. Remember, executives meet with 5-15 people each day. And executive assistants interact with dozens more. If you don't interact with the gatekeeper until it's time to upsell a year later, that gatekeeper will not remember you.  Maintain the relationship, stay in touch, and develop a personal connection to ensure the gatekeeper reaches out when the time comes. Connect with her on LinkedIn (at natashabeingww) to learn more about her experiences.  This episode is brought to you in part by Skipio. Are you sick of crickets?

Thanks for tuning into the Catapulting Commissions Podcast with your host, Anthony Garcia. On today's monologue episode, Anthony is breaking down a major aspect of your sales practice that could be holding you back from achieving your goals this year--that's being selfish. But it isn't that simple--it's about prioritizing just that. Join Anthony as he outlines what this means, how to avoid the pitfalls, boost yourself into next year, and catapult your commissions.    Whether or not you achieved your 2021 goals, you're not alone. Either way, you need to understand that 1) yes, you either hit your goals or you didn't. 2) You can't give up on yourself. So, what is it that could be holding you back from your 2022 goals? What if you put yourself first? What if you were the priority, and the goal was secondary? We've dived into how you can achieve those goals before, but consider this the asterisk.    There are four ways you can show love to yourself that will help you get over the hump and power through adversity when it arises. You're carrying a heavy load on your shoulders, so it's critical that you take the time to do so. You weren't the person you were 12 months ago.   The first way you can show yourself love is through taking care of your physical health. So many other aspects of your life--your relationships, your work, and your mental health will all suffer. Moving in any way you can will benefit you greatly. This is more of a mental health exercise than it is physical. Taking it seriously will offer you clarity and motivation.    Second, evaluate your personal relationships. Personal relationships in your life that bring out negative energy can have a detrimental impact to the overall process of success and goal setting. Consider who you spend the most time with within your day-to-day. Colleagues, co-workers, peers, and even significant others. If that person brings negative energy into your life, it may be time to take a closer look at what serves you from that relationship. If you love yourself, the way you're supposed to love yourself, you're not going to allow a relationship to have that type of impact on your life. If it's not there, are you willing to do the work to get there? If not, that relationship has got to go.    Another way you can love yourself is to love your finances. When you're stressed about money it negatively impacts personal and professional relationships. Your skills as a sales manager, partner, parent, and entrepreneur all slide when your attention is honed in on how you'll pay your bills. The consequences are grave when you are consumed by that stress. Get a finance coach if you can--if not, there are plenty of free resources that can help you get your money in order.    Finally, and this one is tied into many of the other steps, is to prioritize your mental health. It shouldn't be secondary. What can you do to better your mental health? Is it a staycation? Is it one of the other aspects we talked about earlier? Don't be too proud--this is something necessary for the health of you, your relationships, and your work.

Kendra believes the way we sell has changed forever. Now, we have a whole new way we can work with people that we can layer onto traditional selling. You don't have to get on a plane or drive to meet a prospective customer—you can still connect with people digitally. Digital selling allows you to meet with more people and connect with them in bite-size pieces.  Plus, if you're going to be successful with selling, you need to try new things. Kendra points out that you should have been selling digitally before the pandemic hit. The pandemic should have just accelerated your current strategy.  Outline of This Episode [1:03] The difference between digital and social selling [1:41] How to improve digital selling capabilities [3:11] The perfect digital selling strategy [5:02] Attributes and characteristics of a great digital seller [6:33] Continued communication is key [8:05] Kendra's top 3 digital selling dos and don'ts [11:13] Be on the leading edge of technology Attributes and characteristics of a great digital seller They can be trained on a CRM, how to use LinkedIn, etc. but people most often get tripped up on video. Why? Because you are front and center. You can't look down and take notes and it's difficult to look someone in the eyes. Salespeople have to master connecting and engaging through video. Kendra also emphasizes that writing has never been a more critical skill than it is now. You have to be able to write emails, text messages, and social media posts. Emotional intelligence is also critical. Can you sense another person's feelings when you're limited with body language?  Continued communication is key Kendra believes that continued communication is important from a strategy perspective. Whether it's recapping a conversation via email, video, or text—you need to stay in touch frequently. In the past, salespeople didn't always do this and could get away with it. But things are more competitive now than ever before. If you're going to differentiate yourself, frequent communication via a variety of tools is important.  Kendra's top 3 digital selling dos and don'ts Kendra's digital selling dos and don'ts are stellar:  Don't shy away from using your camera, even if your client doesn't turn there's on. Communicate more frequently using different mediums—including text messages.  Pay close attention to what your prospects and clients are saying so you can tailor your discussion.  Don't use the same canned email for every sales situation. Sequences can help you streamline the process but the sequence needs to be tailored so your prospects and clients feel heard. Don't use the same communication method. Kendra had a prospect that wouldn't respond to email or voicemail. So she sent a LinkedIn message to mix it up. If you have their cell phone number—and they use it in their email signature—it's perfectly acceptable to send them a text.  Don't shy away from using the phone. It was the “first” digital strategy.  Be on the leading edge of technology When Kendra first started in sales, she had too many clients to cover on her own. Kendra had 300 installed accounts. She didn't have time for everything she had to do and still hit her quota. She couldn't go out and meet with every single client and collect orders, which felt like the most important part of the process. You need that face-to-face interaction and connection.  But why couldn't she get some of the information from a fax (which at the time was new technology)? She'd simply start to accept orders from clients via fax. Ever since, she consistently looks at her process and asks, “What can I do that's different from everyone else? How can I be the leading edge and stand out?”  Kendra got an award for taking orders over a fax machine because no one had done it before. All because she took initiative and focused on being on the leading edge of technology.  Connect with Kendra Lee Connect on LinkedIn Follow on Twitter Connect With Paul Watts  LinkedIn Twitter  Subscribe to SALES REINVENTED Audio Production and Show notes by PODCAST FAST TRACK https://www.podcastfasttrack.com
