The #1 Reason Why Most Salespeople Fail
According to New York Times best-selling author and leading sales trainer Frank Rumbauskas, salespeople fail because they're selling to the wrong people to begin with.
"Salespeople don't necessarily fail because they lack sales skills. On the contrary, it's because they're not selective enough about who they choose to sell to," Rumbauskas explains.
The example he gave came from a bold statement he heard a salesperson make: "I can sell peanut butter and jelly in a steakhouse." But according to Rumbauskas, if you're in a steakhouse, the logical thing to do would be to sell steaks, not peanut butter & jelly sandwiches.
"We're in a challenging economy -- the recession isn't quite over, but companies are back to expanding their sales forces, which increases competition. Overall, it's a tough environment in which to sell, which is why it's all the more important to only spend time with the most highly qualified prospects."
It was this exact challenge that promted Rumbauskas to create his Never Cold Call Again home study course, that not only teaches salespeople to generate leads without cold calilng, but also provides a blueprint for very specific qualifying of prospects.
"If you want to prosper in today's economy, it's not enough to generate lots of leads; you must know how to really dig down and qualify those leads to make sure you're not wasting time with people who aren't going to buy, and buy soon," he concludes.
