Moving Beyond the Gatekeeper

Talking with gatekeepers is inevitable. Learn proven strategies to reach the decision maker.Anyone can approach an organization; not everyone can get in. The first step in business-to-business sales is getting in the door. It doesn't matter if you have the greatest product or the most dynamic presentation if you can't get in front of the decision maker. That decision maker is often highly guarded by a savvy gatekeeper who screens out sales calls--leaving even talented, experienced salespeople frustrated by their inability to get access to the right people. Success in sales approaches comes through impressing key decision makers. This topic addresses how to get the initial appointment and offers proven methods for getting through to the decision makers. Influence isn’t always where you expect, and the content presents specific principles and techniques that can work wonders in getting you the appointment.

Sales Follow-Up Do's and Don'ts

Learn tried-and-true techniques for following up with sales prospects, while avoiding mistakes that result in the loss of a potential sale.No product sells itself. Sales is a profession and salespeople are professionals. Everything professionally-trained salespeople do and say is purposeful and intentional. That does NOT mean scripted, quite the contrary, in fact, but NEVER mistake professional sales for ‘off the cuff’ conversation. Genuineness and sincerity are at the heart (or at least should be) of what professional salespeople communicate. ‘How’ they say things, ‘when’ they say things and ‘what’ they say are crucial to building trust and long-lasting, meaningful relationships with clients. A salesperson’s blueprint to suspecting, prospecting, approach, fact-finding, and presenting options is based on subject matter expertise AND how well they have built rapport with their prospective client. Their genuine connection to their client and deep understanding of their client’s needs is what transforms a sales transaction into an advisory relationship. Are there do’s and don’ts for this process? You bet. Are there do’s and don’ts to following up with a suspect, prospect and (hopefully) client? Of course. Sifting and sorting suspects and following a systematic process to get them to taking action is simple, but not easy. To achieve success in this field, a sales professional must be willing to work as much on themselves, interpersonally, as they do on their system. Professional salespeople leave nothing to chance. This topic will help you develop your own personalized sales process and learn how to speak and act with purpose, meaning, and sincerity to build a real client base.
