Smart Sales: Giving It Your All and Communication
Here’s what caught our attention this week:
The Two Ways You Lose Deals Now
In this new era of social media, connecting has become easier than ever, but that also means that relationships are at a high priority. It can be easy to forget that the names and photos on your screen belong to real, living people; people who value relationships and real connections. Though there are new ways to lose a deal through these new channels, Anthony Iannarino offers some tips on winning them.
The Fine Line Between Being Inquisitive, and Becoming an Interrogator
Asking questions is the only way to learn, but it’s important to know where the line in the sand is drawn. Ask too many questions, and you risk losing your prospect’s interest.

Create Winning Sales Experiences
Experience is everything. If a prospect has a bad experience with you, that deal is nearly gone for good. Therefore, creating a winning sales experience is crucial in today’s fast-paced world of nonstop sales. There are many ways to do this, but Barbara Giamanco says that the keys lie in your approach and your message.
The Vital Importance of Giving it Your All
Sure, it can be easy to start coasting through your job, doing just above the minimum amount of work, and calling it a day, but there’s no real value to that. There is value, however, in trying your best and giving it your all. Robert Terson explains why it is so important to commit to what you do and to try your best despite the risk that you might fail.

Jeff Shore offers some insight on aligning your sales and your communication strategies for an effective sales presentation.
