Don’t share your business card and get more sales! Learn to Sell or Die- Douglas Vermeeren

DOn't Suck at Selling - Douglas Vermeeren 1

Do you really think that handing out your business card is your best strategy? We all know what happens next, your “prospect” is simply going to throw it in his pocket and it will either go through with the laundry or they’ll put it in a big stack of others cards with an elastic and they’ll forget about it for 6 months until they get back to it. At that point they’ll have forgotten who you are and either throw it out onto it for another 6 months and then throw it out. Sounds like a great way to generate sales… Not. There is a better way to do it.

The first suggest that I want to give is that you don’t hand ourt cards at all. If someone is interested in your busienss or your offering, YOU should be the one to ask for a card or contact informaiton. That puts you in control of the upcoming contact. Now you aren’t waiting for someone to find the time to reach you.

I encourage you to try this and see how many of the time wasters will identify themselves by either suddenly not having a card themselves, or be unqwilling to give you their contact info.

May I also suggest that just like you have a process set up for qualifying propsects for a sale you qualiy people to receive your business card. I know some people suggest you should give your business card to everyone. (And perhaps there are some industries where that works well) But if you spread your card everywhere as though it was cheap and available you are teaching people how to treat you and your business. Invest a little more effort to make the cards you hand out more valuable to your prospect.

Surprisingly as I have taught this to my students they have noticed that they aren;’t dealing with as many time wasting prospects and the quality of their cusotmers has risen dramatically. Give it a try and you’ll see what I mean.

Sales Skills? Do you need them? Learn to Sell or Die Minute by Douglas Vermeeren

leave a comment »

Your skills are within your control and can also be the difference between success and failure. Recent studies also demonstrate that when you have skills your confidence goes up and so does your will power. Skills are also a reflection of how much you belief in your purse. If you believe you’ll get to work and develop yourself to do the job. If you don’t you won’t. #douglasvermeeren #learntosellordie

Your future may be in jeopardy – Personal Power Mastery Minute with Douglas Vermeeren

leave a comment »

Too many people don’t take time to consider how their decisions and actions in the present create their future. They also don’t understand that positive results are not the only option. It is possible (and for most people common) to create negative or constricting futures because of weak or poor choices in the present. Don’t make decisions based on scarcity or what you see in the present. Make your decisions and actions conform to what you want and who you want to become. Even if you can’t see the way in the present your deliberate actions will start opening the doors to the future you want. #douglasvermeeren #personalpowermastery #PPMDouglas Vermeeren - Personal Power Mastery 180

Your secret weapon in Sales – Learn to Sell or Die minute with Douglas Vermeeren

leave a comment »

It’s so important to ask questions in the sales process. Without questions you can’t possibly understand the needs, preferences, abilities and desires of your prospect. I have observed that the number of questions a sales person asks is in direct relation to the number of sales they close – think about that! While we are on the subject of questions I should point out that not all questions are equal. Take some time to craft some good questions that help the prospect talk openly about what they really want and feel understood.

Most people can come up with great ideas and are extremely creative. I am one of those people and I see others like me everywhere I go. Until I learned that the rewards are in being bold, taking action and then finishing the job (or hiring others to help you finish the job) you will never create massive success. What can you do today to start, keep going and finish at a level of competence? That’s where the real rewards are!!! #personalpowermastery #douglasvermeeren #ppmDouglas Vermeeren Personal Power Mastery 177
