Essential Sales Skills Part 1 – Feedback
Business: Sales • Published: June 12, 2009
If you don’t know what your client thinks about what you are telling him, then you will not be able to act accordingly. i.e. if he disagrees with what you have just said, or he didn’t understand or even wasn’t listening to you, then feedback will let you know how you need to respond. Just because someone has a chatty voice, doesn’t mean that they will be good at sales. In fact, in many instances a loquacious salesperson will generally not listen and babble on and on about how great their product is and not ask what the client thinks.

Fantastic Telesales Secrets – Voice Speed
Business: Sales Teleselling • Published: May 7, 2009
Selling over the telephone is reliant upon your voice and how you talk. Your prospect doesn’t care what you look like so it’s irrelevant if you happen to be wearing a £10,000 Rolex, a Gieves & Hawkes suit and drove to your office in a Bentley. For all they care you roller skated to work in a tornado red thong, because if your voice isn’t up to scratch you may as well go home.

How to Be a Telesales Genius With Self Analysis
Business: Sales Teleselling • Published: April 20, 2009
It would be nice to have a professional sales coach by your side each and every day, but you don’t need me there with you to be successful with this type of sales self analysis I talk about here. This is something that you can do on your own or with a colleague. You just need to know what you are looking for. To start this process you are going to need a recording of your telesales pitch. If you work for a company that records all of its outgoing and incoming telephone calls, I am sure that in most circumstances that your manager or director would allow you to use a copy of your sales presentation for your own self improvement.
Telesales – The Introduction – AIDA
Business: Sales Teleselling • Published: April 8, 2009
When a sales person speaks to a prospect for the first time all they are doing is essentially trying to break the ice with someone that they have never spoken to before. They then attempt to have a chat to find out if there is a chance that the product, service, item that they are trying to sell may be of use, benefit or be of assistance to the person they’re speaking to.
Telesales – How to Write a Cold Call Pitch Or Presentation
Business: Sales Teleselling • Published: April 8, 2009
Writing any type of sales presentation is an art form in itself. But a cold call presentation is more difficult because you only have a very short period of time to make an impact. It’s essential that you follow a set structure in order for your sales pitch to flow like a good novel. Let me expand in this analogy; imagine buying a book that turned you off or bored you senseless within the first few pages. It’s more than likely you would stop reading it and move onto something more interesting instead. That is how a lot of companies cold call pitches are received by a vast majority of the population.
Objection Handling Tips – Feel – Felt – Found
Business: Sales Teleselling • Published: April 6, 2009
Feel felt found is a classic way of helping you deal with an objection, it’s not a tool to actually remove an objection, but it does work very well in softening your approach. Look at it as precursor to objection handling. When a prospect gives you an objection, the first and most common response from a trainee sales person is to disagree with the Prospect and tell them that they are wrong. This makes sense in principle, as an objection is a barrier stopping your client from buying your product.
Art of Closing the Deal – Part 1
Business: Sales Teleselling • Published: March 25, 2009
This is part 1 of the sales closing process and I really do insist that if you want to learn how to close, then you must read this section first. However, I will let you know straight away that I am not actually going to talk about closing the deal in any technical way such as listing different types of closes or any magic lines that will make your client buy from you immediately. Unfortunately, you’ll have to wait a little for the types of different closes, and as for the magic lines, well, they don’t exist. Sorry.
