    EXECUTION 100 Brown Cents To $8000

    So my plan was to have a sales career and build a business along the side because the skills I'd be learning in sales would be easily transferable and the money would help support me. I've made huge progress so far but another obstacle has arrived. I do B2B, software sales. This is my first...

    Cold calling partner to practice with?

    Since posting this, I've made hundreds of cold calls and you're right. It seems to be a numbers game where you instill as much confidence as possible in the prospect through your articulation of your service's value. At the same time, you have to be able to switch to zero-pressure, be...

I think it would be a great learning opportunity and if several people are interested, then we could organize something together. If you're interested, reply to this thread and I'll send you a...

    This is a great review Lex. I want to send this email to a mass number of people within various retail organisations - hence why it's so general. If I were focusing on a c-suite within an enterprise, I'd make the email more targeted. With that said, I'm absolutely going to make all the...

    How To Sell To Smart People?

    My definition of smart is that they are more logical / have greater IQ. Hence they don't care about stories as much or aren't as affected by the enthusiasm you have towards your product like everyday consumers are. I feel like they want you to get straight to the point about what your product...

    How To Sell To Smart People?

    This is perfect. I'm going to buy Spin Selling right now. I love the part about finding out the real incentive structure of the customer. I really should have considered that, but sometimes it's difficult when you don't know who the decision maker is - I guess that's something I'll have to...

    How To Sell To Smart People?

    I don't understand your reply. Emotional persuasion is common practice in sales and marketing. Why would I just tell the facts about how my product is better when the customer is more receptive to a story? And no, my product is not perfect for my customers' needs. I don't think a perfect...

    How To Sell To Smart People?

    I run a business where I sell b2b, particularly to executives responsible for multi-million dollar companies. I've made a number of sales but I really need to increase my volume of sales to be profitable this year. I find that it's easier to sell B2C because typical consumers seem to be very...

    GOLD! Intro, AMA, and a Recent Sale for $6M of InvestorJunkie.com

    @lludwig I can't relate to your current situation. But from what I've seen, a lot of successful entrepreneurs around me have lost their personalities on their pursuit to wealth. I notice that once those entrepreneurs have retaken an old hobby or started pursuing something that meaningfully...

    FEATURED! How deep does this "FAKE GURU" market actually go?

    I don't have time to make a detailed post, but I'm surprised that nobody has mentioned Dan Pena's involvement in helping to create these fake gurus. Gary Vee is only different because instead of 'teaching' people to make money, he's teaching people to invest emotionally in him. That's why...
