You need to make the most of every sales lead you get
If you had a scratch ticket for the lottery in your hand could you tell someone if it was a winner? No way. You’d have to scratch off the little gray ovals to find out, wouldn’t you? Every sales prospect is the same way. Andy Paul says that he’s heard sales pros say that they can tell that a particular lead is no good, but how do they really know if they don’t investigate? On this episode, Andy shares why he believes salespeople should follow up on 100% of leads to ensure that they are not leaving money on the table. More importantly, he shares best practices for doing that and making those leads that don’t pan out into referrals.
Why you need to always sell with the sharp end of the stick.
Simply put, your prospects will not appreciate it if you waste their time. That means when you set up a sales call you need to ensure that the people going to meet with the prospect are the exact people they need to give the answers required to close the deal. There’s a place for training, but never at the expense of the prospect’s time. Andy Paul unpacks his concept of zero time selling on this episode of In The Arena. Listen and learn.
