Top Ten Most Popular Posts of 2009

I really only started seriously blogging in September, so this post should really be called the Top Ten Posts . . . Ever. The series on 10 Essentials rules the list, with a couple of outliers forcing there way on. I have a couple that fell just outside of the top ten that I feel deserve an honorable mention.

The Top Ten

1. 10 Essentials: Opener vs. Closer The hands down most viewed winner. It isn’t even really close. I know why this one resonates with people.

2. 10 Essentials: Sales Acumen vs. Business Acumen

3. Why You Fail The first post outside of the 10 Essentials Series to land on the list. Why so popular?

4. 10 Essentials: Activity vs. Effectiveness

5. 10 Essentials: Commissions vs. Customer’s Success

6. Sales Process Problems: Turn by Turn Guidance is Unavailable The second outside the 10 Essentials Series inspired by my friend David Brock.

7. 10 Essentials: Company Brand vs. My Brand

8. 10 Essentials: Selling Outside vs. Selling Inside

9. 10 Essentials: Great Communicator vs. Great Listener

10. 10 Essentials: Adaptable vs. Prepared

My List of Honorable Mentions
