I have to admit when I first dived into the entrepreneurial world I did not know much about sales. I thought you make a product and you introduce a service – and you simply share it with the world. I had a few sales here and there. I had a lot to learn and I am continuously learning…it was much different than health care yet there were some similarities. The similarities have to do with how you feel when you feel that you have been taken care of … Read the rest
How much is too much? As a business owner and entrepreneur I have asked myself this question over and over. In my mind the voices battle it out saying, “Don’t be too salesy. You are a teacher at heart.” When it is right to sell and when is it right to educate? How much should I be sharing?

In economic downturns, there are individuals who think that attracting clients is just not possible. They think people are nickel and diming it to make ends meet and stuffing every dollar they make into their mattresses. The reality is some people may be, but the majority are still buying what they feel they need and what they want. Take a stroll through the malls, people are still walking out with bags of purchases.
The biggest point I want you to think about is when attracting clients, you do not just want anyone. You need to be … Read the rest
We are all in sales-selling ourselves out in the world. Selling is a relationship between the seller and the prospect. Selling doesn’t have to sound like a dirty word. I do not like high-pressure sales, gimmicks, or tricks to get the sale. I do like to study salespeople when I go into showrooms to see if they create relationships with their customers. I want to know if there truly listening to hear what their prospects needs and wants are. A salesperson should be able to answer the question, “What’s in it for them?” before looking for the sale.

Lori Raudnask share tips on how to handle sales objections with Debra Kasowski.

Always come into their world first and find out the reason why they are objecting.
Ask a question. For example -“So the price is too high. I appreciate that. What have you compared it to?” Really go into their world … Read the rest
