You can’t sell like it’s still 1982

with 2 comments

Times have changes. In fact, they have changed in every industry on the planet. They have changed int he way we communicate and also in terms of what we expect from each other. Recently I had a conversation that led to a sales presentation at a coffee shop. I do this quite often because I want to learn about what’s happening in the world of sales and since I teach sales I want to see regularly what is happening in the marketplace. From time to time I see some awesome ideas and strategies at work. Other times I see some crazy stuff that is basically laughable. This is one of those experiences.

However although at the time to me it was laughable it was also quite tragic because this isn’t the first time I saw this and I fear that it might still be pretty common. I call the approach I’m about to share “selling like it’s ’82” Why? Because this kind of crap actually used to work.

So here’s what happened:

I met this “Flashy” dressed guy at a local networking group. He had a handshake that was a little too excited for my tastes. He expressed interest in me, but honestly I could feel that he was trying to restrain himself from blurting out his pitch. Within seconds everything switched to his excitement about this amazing venture he found. it was changing lives and had scientific data to back it up and everything. Within the three minutes we had together he tried to cover the entire companies history, present, future, founders, marketshare, potential for return and compensation plan. Very overwhelming.  He concluded with an invite to continue the conversation over coffee.

I could tell when I said yes he felt he had qualified me.

When we met he went directly into the presentation and shared with me everything he had ever learned about the company, its directors and every positive testimonial the company had ever received.

Every time I would nod my head he would declare, “See, you get it. Right?”

He attempted several sales tactics that I knew he had learned from their outdated sales materials. He used obvious tie-down questions, yes-frames and standard trial closes. His presentation although glossy didn’t resonate with me and at the end of the meeting he began to push using his approach to why everyone should logically be part of this important and revolutionary crusade. I declined.

And now here we are at this article.

In the 1980’s you could sell if you were slick.

Today requires authenticity.

In the 1980’s you could sell of you were tactic driven.

Today requires relationship before tactics.

In the 1980’s you could be pushy and use hard closes.

Today requires that you recognize that people are intelligent.

Overall it was an interesting experience. I hope for those of you reading this involved in sales you recognize that authenticity, relationship with proper use of tactics and solving real problems that your prospect recognize and want to solve will help you. People do want to buy from good salesmen. What they don’t want is to be sold by a crappy one.

Sales people have a bad reputation. It seems that no matter where you go sales people are interrupting your life to offer you things that you don’t want, need or have an interest in. Their timing is terrible as they show up at your office, on your doorstep or on the phone. Sales people are often seen as scripted robots on a mission to separate your from your cash and often their tactics leaving people feeling cheated or swindled.

If you find yourself nodding along to the sentiments above it might be time to slow down. The truth of the matter is that all people are sales people. You included.

Sales is an essential part of human existence. Sales is often perceived as transactional encounters where people are exchanging money for goods or services. While this is an essential part of sales, (you couldn’t eat without these kind of exchanges) sales is much broader than this limited view.

Sales includes all forms of influence and sharing of ideas. Sales includes even the way we talk to ourselves. (More on that another time.)

So why do we hate sales people so much. Recently I conducted a survey online in the hopes of understanding why we all have such contempt for sales people and for those of us who are dedicated to becoming likeable and trusted sales people what we can do to become more likeable.

Douglas Vermeeren announces new Brand and Seminar series

Douglas Vermeeren announces new Brand and seminar series

unspecified
A lot of people have been writing in to me about my recent posts around the BAM movement. (Be Awesome Movement) The comments have been encouraging and exciting. I have received several comments asking specifically why I don’t share more of these ideas in my seminars. The truth is that I used to. In fact, these are the kinds of things that I taught when I first started in personal development and I loved it. I felt these lessons really made a difference in the lives of those I was teaching and it made me feel good to help so many people on a personal level.

I kind of gravitated away from this over time because most event organizers wanted me to teach about some of the successes I was having in business and financially. I like teaching those things too and I probably still will from time to time.

But today I would like to announce that I am introducing my new brand PERSONAL POWER MASTERY. The tools included in the initial program will share strategies on how to:

Create a more inspiring life
Make more effective decisions
Get those decisions to stick when things in your life are difficult
Overcome limiting beliefs permanently
The true way goals are set and achieved (Which surprisingly I haven’t found anyone teaching yet.)
Set up effective boundaries to stay positive in a negative world
Create more abundance in your life
Improve your relationships at business and at home
Take charge of your situation and create the results you want in all areas of your life
Recognize how your thoughts are becoming things
What the law of probability is and how is changes everything
Why top achievers success where others failure

And much more.

And that is what I’m choosing to focus on in level 1. I am excited about this content because I know from experience with past student – IT IS LIFE CHANGING!

As a result of this material:
I have a student who repaired a relationship that was destined for divorce.
I have a student lose close to 200 pounds and keep it off.
I have a student who developed a 6 figure business directly coming out of a bankruptcy.
I have a student who immediately increased his sales closing rate by 65%
I have a student who overcame substance addictions and suicidal thoughts
I have a student who grew his client list to the extent where he received two massive promotions in three months.

unspecified-1

There have been so many success stories with this material. It is unique and powerful. It will change your life too.

My invitation to you is to register for a personal power event in your city and come and learn for yourself. I look forward to meeting you soon!
