You Will Always be a Salesman, Group Called Everybody, Calling Decision Makers on Mobile

Matt's LinkedIn Posts June 2020

Hey cold callers, does calling a decision maker on their mobile bother you?

If so, you’re not alone but you need to let it go.

These might help:

Decision maker: “Hey! This is my cell, how did you get this number?”

Rep: “I’m really sorry, it’s the number I was provided. Sally, my info also says you’re responsible for………, is that still the case?”

Or

Decision maker: “Why are you calling my mobile?”

Rep: “I’m really sorry, I wasn’t sure where to call you. Ron, I’m calling about your ……….., is that even your responsibility?

Tonality is everything.

Apologize

Deflect

Engage

Never be afraid to take your shot.

It’ll probably be the only one you get.

Good luck on the phones, finish the quarter strong!

Ps. How do you respond to mobile objections?

Sales itself is gamification.

The game is money.

You don’t have to be money motivated to be a successful sales person.

But it does help.

The variable income aspect of sales makes it a numbers game for most people.

They’re thinking about how X amount of sales will make them Y in commissions.

Hit 120% of your quota and you’re probably making a nice living.

Miss the mark too many times and you’re probably looking for a new job.

It’s not easy being in the profession of sales but when you figure it out;

It sure can be rewarding.

Winning always is.

Have a great weekend, stay safe!

Can you be effective in sales when you don’t truly understand what you sell?

No.

I’m sure many people get by in sales without a deep understanding of what they’re selling.

But they’re never really effective.

Effective is identifying and solving a prospect’s problem.

Effective is selling what the customer needs.

Effective is a long term relationship.

Master what you sell, then master selling it.

What do think?

Let’s face it, there’s an “it” factor when it comes to cold calling.

To continually succeed it requires a:

Highly prepared
Great communicating
Knowledgeable
Quick thinking
Poised under pressure
Strong willed
Self-motivated

Person.

Is that you❓

During my last year of college I told my dad I didn’t think I wanted to be a salesman.

He laughed.

He said “Matt, you will always be a salesman because you’ll always have to sell yourself.”

Miss you, Dad.

Happy Father’s Day!

The sales manager’s job isn’t to help reps make sales.

Their job is to punch out anything that gets in their way.

Agree or disagree?

How many times have you wanted to quit your sales job?

Don’t answer that.

If you’ve felt like this job is the worst ever and what the heck am I doing;

You’re in a group called Everybody.

Whether it’s a missed opportunity, a problem client or changes to the commission structure.

Sales can be one of the most frustrating occupations on the Planet.

Fortunately, it can also be one of the most fun and lucrative jobs you’ll ever find.

So the next time you’re about to lose your mind.

Just remember, tomorrow is always a different day in sales.

Have a great week❗️

Do you want to know the best part about posting on LinkedIn?

It’s not the likes or the “great post” comments.

It’s not the visits to your profile or your company’s website.

It’s not even the customers that you sell.

It’s people like Sakul Nathwani and messages like this.

If a post can help one person accomplish something great,

It doesn’t get any better than that.

Thank you, Sakul!

Do you want to sell more?

Then do more.

Such as:

Find twice as many ‘great’ leads.

Call three times more real decision makers.

Join five groups to which your target buyers belong.

Connect ten times more on social media.

Send fifteen video messages to your most ideal prospects. Be yourself.

Ask twenty of your best clients for a referral.

Network with almost everyone you know, even it’s just to catch up.

Personalize every cold email.

Keep plugging.

It’ll happen.

If you think your success in sales will automatically transfer over to another company;

You should think again.

Here are some reasons why successful sales people fail at their next gig.

1️⃣ No inbound leads.
2️⃣ They don’t take the time to learn the product/service.
3️⃣ The new market is inferior.
4️⃣ They don’t adjust to a new buyer persona.
5️⃣ What’s expected from them isn’t realistic.
6️⃣ They won’t prospect.
7️⃣ What am I missing?

Have a great weekend!

Most sales people don’t really want to get better at cold calling.

It’s because they don’t like doing it.

The irony is that once they’re successful enough, then they don’t mind making the dials.

It comes down to getting over that hump.

Which can be a tough mountain to climb with many nerves to battle.

But with every win, comes less nerves.

Keep dialing.

You’ll get there.
