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.

Why do most entrepreneurs fail? Personal Power Mastery minute – Douglas Vermeeren

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

Waking up just 30 minutes earlier gives you an edge – Personal Power Mastery minute

Douglas Vermeeren - Personal Power MAstery 158As I studied the daily patterns of the most successful people in the world I wasn’t surprised to find this one. Are you getting started early in the day or do you like to sleep in as long as possible? Or maybe you just like a few extra minutes…Maybe its time for a shift? #personalpowermastery #PPM #douglasvermeeren #EARLYSTART

How you start the day often determines the kind of day you will have. Too often average people look for how they can hold back and relax. They assume that a few extra minutes in bed will make their day more relaxed and less stress. The opposite is actually true. By holding back and staying in bed a little longer you actually are creating more stress as it now becomes necessary to spend the day catching up.

You’ll find even waking up an extra 30 minutes earlier will give you the advantage of sorting out your day and getting things off on the right foot. Start in control and you’ll find you stay in control.

30 minutes may not seem like much but in the overall scheme of things it is often just enough to allow you to take control of your morning rather than have you respond and rush to take care of everything that you need to do.

There’s an old saying that successful people do that which is hard first, so they can do that which is difficult later. Broke and broken people take the easy route first and in the end get stuck with everything that is hard.

Make a choice now that you get the days tougher things behind you first. And for some the toughest is simply to roll out of bed and get started.

One final observation: Momentum is a key factor to getting out of bed. Like everyone else I know it can be hard to wake up. (Especially when I’m teaching a seminar in a location that has a different time zone than my own. My UK seminars start at 9am their time – 2 am my time. That means my day often starts at midnight when I am over there. It’s not always easy to get out of bed at that hour. Especially when you throw in the airplanes trips and the rest.) However the one thing I have learned is that the key is momentum. Create it before you feel like. Get moving and you will start moving.

When you get started early you’ll find that you will have plenty of time for rest later. And there is a peace that comes from knowing that the hard stuff is behind you.

Wishing you success,

Doug

Our Values determine so much!

Douglas Vermeeren - Personal Power Mastery Quote 118.jpg

Our Values determine so much.
Personal Power Mastery Minute by Douglas Vermeeren

This is a most important subject which I anticipate you will be seeing many times in the future with Personal Power Mastery. The reason why is that people always support what they value most. Let me put it another way, Why do people struggle to get to their goals? Why do people struggle to keep New Years resolutions? Why do employees miss sales goals? Why do people even forget things they said they would do? Why do people even forget important dates like birthdays and anniversaries? It all has to do with our values.

What we value most becomes a priority.

What we don’t value gets procrastinated, discarded, postponed, avoided or experiences whatever other kind of neglect you can think of. We always do what we value most. We always protect what we value most. And so therefore our life is really a reflection of what we value most.

For some people we can instantly see that values that are not creating patterns of success. i call these the patterns of poverty. They include values such as immediate gratification, the value to impress others, the value to appear powerful, the desire to be liked.

There are additional values that rob people of success and that can include appetites that can’t be feed with food, drugs, sex, and any other physical indulgence.

And naturally there are ego based values that also keep success from coming your way.

The truth of the matter is after conducting seminars for the last 20 years and having thousands of attendees come through our doors even these values are not what people really want. Most of the above we have been taught by sources outside our true self that these values if you embrace them will bring happiness and fulfillment. Instead the are nothing but counterfeits and imposters in the long run.

The most powerful values come from what I call Authentic of purpose.

When people discover their sense of true purpose their true values appear. Most of these are often about connecting with the true self and connecting with the goodness in other people. (That will be an article for another time.)

But for today I would challenge you to think carefully about what you really want and if you spend some soul-searching time to consider the roots of why you really want it you will be able to discover how genuine your values are. And the shift that you might experience could very well surprise you.

 

Warning: Motivational Speakers Can’t Afford To Make Mistakes

10X Your Speaking Business Douglas Vermeeren are you right?

Over the last few months Doug Vermeeren have seen that many speaker trainers are starting to appear on the scene, while some of them have some interesting ideas most of them are sharing information that doesn’t work at a high level in todays marketplace. Ideas and concepts such as developing signature speeches, seeking out paid speaking events and so forth are very limited (if they will get you results at all)

The speaking business is undergoing a massive shift right now – simply due to the massive volume of people that are entering the speaking profession. That means that if you want to have a platform or a business you will need to be more valuable than anyone else in todays marketplace.

Those who cannot level up will be natural processes find themselves irrelevant in a hurry.

If you have a brilliant message you owe it to yourself to level up what you do. And that begins with getting better people to teach you. You can’t settle for paying someone who doesn’t have the skills to get you what you need in todays marketplace. Life is too short and you don’t have it to waste on theories that don’t work or tools that are decades old. If you want to become the best you need the best to help you. Good intentions and a heartfelt “speaker trainer” won’t get you there in today’s marketplace.
