You Are Building Relationships with Prospects Who Have Yet to Respond

“No one answers their phone anymore.”“I leave a voicemail but don’t get called back.”“I’ve messaged the contact on LinkedIn and sent an email but am not getting replies.”There’s a section of Chapter 11 in my latest book, Sales Truth, titled Earn the Callback with Perseverance,” and it contains some of my least popular advice.

When Your Prospect Says No to Your Request for a Meeting

The reality is that no matter how well you do early on in your proactive call to a prospective client, very likely, the response to your first request for a meeting is going to be “No.” This, my sales friends, is where we separate true sales hunters absolutely committed to securing early stage meetings from those sellers

Independence Day Mid-Year Message: Get Your Mind & Heart Prepared

The Phone is Very Much Alive and Well

I either chuckle (or say bad words) when I read from today’s nouveau (faux) sales experts that the phone is dead and you’re a moron, or a luddite, for even attempting to use the phone to secure a meeting or to sell. Ha!The telephone has made an amazing comeback over the past few years. So
