Long weekend here in Perth.. just back from Sunday morning water polo training..
The feedback from last weeks request for input on this email overwhelming told us that people like the personal touch leading into useful business info..
Which only supports the Science of Influence reported by Cialdini in his book ‘The Psychology of Influence’..
See Chapter 5 – the Principle of Liking…
ie: if people like you, or feel like you are like them, they are more likely to listen to you, relate to you, be led by you, vote for you, buy from you…
Lessons from this week.
OBJECTION DRILLS EMPOWER
Had a great day Friday with one of our Recruiting clients working through several of our Blue Rocket Objection Handling Drills.
By the time we finished the 3 hour session, people were so empowered and even more confident about presenting their points of difference and taking objections and concerns of a prospect and turning them into closing situations.
Lesson: Make sure you regularly (at least every 60-90 days) work through the top 5 objections you regularly face in your sales world. Build up the Objection Handling Muscles and you’ll convert more sales at higher prices… guaranteed.
PS: if you’re not convinced enough to overcome the objections within yourself, how can you convince or persuade anyone else?
VIDEO COMMUNICATION POWERFUL
At last weeks Platinum the great Joel Bauer reminded us yet again of the power of successfully using video and video testimonials and video tutorials as the NEW way to communicate with your prospects and clients.
As a result we have systematically recorded video tutorials every day for the past 10 days..
Check out www.bluerocket.com.au for at least 14 new video tutorials on everything from Managing Teams, to Holding People Accountable to What you can Learn from Bon Scott when it comes to Marketing..
Lesson: How can you use video, Youtube, Social Media and video tutorials (all free to use by the way) to communicate, educate, relate to your prospects and clients? (There is a very good chance none of your competition are using it… so get to it.. get the EDGE.)
IF SALES ARE DOWN.. DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT
If a footy team is losing at half time… better do something different in the second half..
Malcolm Blight won 2 Premierships for Adelaide by taking a back line player and putting him down the forward line.
John Worsfold won a Premiership by dropping David Wirrapunda in between the centre and Barry Hall so the ball couldnt get to their leading goal scorer.
Even in my son’s under 15 team.. We’re losing… so we put our best player from Centre Half Back to Full Forward.. He kicks 7 goals in a quarter and we win.. get into the Grand Final and win a Premiership.
Other days.. we are losing the centre clearances… so we put our best 2 guys in the centre.. the ball gets down the forward line for the first time in the game.. We start to kick goals and we win..
How does this apply to your Sales Team?
Who is in your engine room? Are they getting the ball out of the centre?
If not…put someone else in the engine room..
If you leave everyone in the same place and keep doing what you did last month.. you’ll get the same result..
Leaders make decisions..
De-cision…. derives from the word ‘in-cision’..to cut..
Cut with the past… create a different future.
