Don’t let selling FREAK YOU OUT! Learn to Sell or Die – Douglas Vermeeren

leave a comment »

Why is it some people freak out when it comes to sales? I’ll tell you one of the major reasons I have observed… Are you ready? It’s because they aren’t sold themselves. And here’s the fact, if you aren’t already sold on your product or service you will always get freaked out when you try to present it to someone else and ask them for money. You need to be 100% committed or you will bring your hesitation and doubt with you into the presentation. And when you encounter a prospect that has questions, objections or concerns IT WILL FREAK YOU OUT! #learntosellordie #douglasvermeeren #1salestraining #topsalestrainer #salessuccessacademy #salesfails #salestips #salesquotes #howtosell #improveyoursales

Don’t Suck at selling #2 by Douglas Vermeeren

Don’t suck at selling # 2 by Douglas Vermeeren
Don’t blend in

Whenever I talk about this concept in our seminars so many salespeople turn crazy. Either they start doing real gimmicky things to attract attention which can sometimes mean they become the crazy guy with the colourful socks in the office or the outrageous ties. I even saw one lady who made it a ritual to run around the room quickly and do a lap giving everyone a high five every time she made a sale at her car dealership. (She thought for some reason people liked to see her come to life like those buskers dressed as robots who do something when you drop in a quarter.) While these surface things may be novel what I am really talking about here is different.

If you want to really stand out you need to stand out for the person that it actually matter for, and that’s your customer. (Who cares if you stand out for coworkers anyways, they aren’t paying you.)

So here’s the whole thing about NOT blending it. You need to consider how your competition is serving (or not serving) your marketplace. You need then turn up what you re doing to exceed customer expectations! This is where and how you can stand out in a way that makes you successful and rich.

What can you do that demonstrates you are really interested in seeing your customer succeed? How are you continuing the relationship after the sale? How are you treating those that don’t buy from you? How ar eyou helping them to feel you are a real person who cares? How are you preparing for delivery? How are you helping them feel qualified?

Lots to think about here. Just don’t be gimmicky — be useful. Be a salesperson — not a dork!

Don’t suck at selling #1 Douglas Vermeeren

suck-do-not

Don’t be a script — Be a real person.

If you sound canned, too rehearsed, practiced or like you are performing YOU WILL SUCK. Sales is about connection. If you come with every words and gesture designed you are old school.

I recently watched a sales training video from a guy you all know. If you think about it you’ll know who I’m tlaking about. In the video his hand gestures were so calculated he looked like a robot with a stick up his backside. He was obviously reading from a teleprompter and that made it even more inauthentic. And the crazy thing is this guy is a well-knwn international sales trainer and he’s been doing this for year. Insane!

And if you think that’s bad — so many of the people he trains end up being the same way. Robots impersonating that main robot. Let’s get real for a minute… You wouldn’t by from a robot like that. (Kind of reminds me of a self-checkout. Sure I pay the machine, but the machine didn’t help me buy anything.)

Any ways, we will talk more in detail about this another time. But for today I’m going to suggest if you want to really start to increase your sales you must know your product, service, pricing, competitors and marketplace enough that you can be a real person. (now some of you out there may think I’m suggesting you wing it and you don’t need to prep. If you think that — shame on you. YOU WILL SUCK and then probably try to blame me and this article. Don’t.)

I am not saying don’t prepare or have a game plan. You need that and we will talk about that another time. What I’m saying is cut out this script crap and trying to memorize a prepatterned monolog to throw up all over your prospects. They won’t like it and you won’t like your results.

About DV: Douglas Vermeeren has been selling forever. He cvalls it like it is and gets results. He has been featured on all kinds of media. He is called by many THE Sales Trainer because he is THAT good. He speaks to audiences around the globe and can help you. Nothing else matters.

Douglas Vermeeren – Our best self gives us our best outcomes.

leave a comment »

Often the decisions we make day to day come either from habit (the decisions that we always make without thinking) or our of crisis or necessity (urgent pressing matters that need our attention.) As a result the outcomes that we experiences and the consequences they bring pretty much keep us where we have always been or put us in a state of stress. Very seldom are accidental decisions likely to create powerful outcomes for us.

Douglas Vermeeren PPM 31As decisions are the important transition moment of bring our thoughts into reality it is important that the important ones be made with care. We cannot randomly approach important issues and expect that they will take us to our best results.

Within each of us is a better self. We have caught glimpses of that person from time to time. We know he or she is there and quite frankly eager to get out. When we are our best self we feel great and inspired. We know that this best self has important contributions to make to our wellbeing and the world around us.  However to have that best-self come forward requires effort. Our best self doesn’t automatically appear unless we proactively decide to allow them forward.

Most often we settle to have our average self solve problems quickly because we are Impatient.  We allow our average self to maintain relationships because its quicker. We let our average self rush through our day because they are more or less efficient and its comfortable.

While this may work occasionally it rarely gives us the life we really want and deserve.

You will soon find that getting your best self to make decisions will make your life easier and more rewarding although it requires more effort at first.

The next time you are making an important decision ask yourself am I settling with the choice my average self is making or is my best self choosing the best path?

Warning: Mos tot the time the decisions your best self would make will take more time, more effort and more commitment. But as the old saying goes it’s better to do something right the first time than to have to repeat it.
