Episode Highlights

Sales Process Growth

  • Growth is about learning new things. This includes establishing a well defined sales process and improving your existing sales process.
  • If you’re on that track of improving anything, it all comes down to learning how to do these things. A good sales manager can learn that in no time.
  • Personal and professional growth are linked. Opportunities for learning and development in the workplace can lead to increased job satisfaction.
  • You will likely fail if you do not focus on your entire sales process. So, build a proper sales process flowchart, sales methodology, and sales stages to prevent this.
  • Feedback and coaching are critical for growth. Managers should provide regular, constructive feedback to help employees understand their strengths.

Rejection Equals Redirection

  • James shared that rejection was something he had difficulty dealing with.
  • Rejection is a natural part of life and should be viewed as an opportunity for growth and learning.

James: “It’s so easy to get down, it’s so easy [to have] a very bad day, and let that carry on to tomorrow, let that carry on to the next day in the world of sales.”

  • Do not let your emotions and ego get in the way of your business.
  • Instead of dwelling on rejection, focus on finding new opportunities and possibilities. Then, repeat business.
  • Failure is a natural part of the process of success. Rejection can be a stepping stone to greater things in the future.

Fostering Customer Awareness

  • Someone can’t buy a product or service that you are offering if they are not at “Most Aware.” Hence, you need to form a standardized sales process.
  • Focus on your sales funnel. Improve your sales process steps. Give your sales rep enough time to learn it. Sales process results are more important than mere sales process management.
  • These people are your best customers. They know what they need to know about the product, the price, and its purpose.
Ancient Secret

Systems Secure Success

  • Create a system that is so powerful that it’s the system itself that is creating the value.
  • That way, all you need are people to handle your current sales process.
  • The team you form needs to have good energy, enthusiasm, and motivation to succeed. Your own sales process is only as effective as your sales managers. Remember: sales processes outperform companies.

The Psych of Customer Decisions

  • The psychology of customer decisions is influenced by the way information is presented and perceived.
  • People tend to make decisions based on emotions rather than logic. Marketers can leverage this by appealing to customers' feelings and desires.
  • Consumers rely on heuristics, or mental shortcuts, and the buying process to make decisions.
  • Social proof, such as customer reviews and testimonials, can influence a customer's decision-making.
  • Consumers are also influenced by the perceived value of a product or service. They may be willing to pay more for a product they perceive as high-quality or exclusive. That’s why you need to ensure you have an effective sales process.
