We have all been there, and if you have not experienced it yet, you will. Sales slumps are those times when you just can’t find your way. It’s when you can’t seem to close the sale regardless of everything you think you are doing right. It’s when you are working harder than ever, but all you feel is pressure and it’s when you ultimately feel hopeless and doubt yourself. If you are in a sales slump, you know that the most important thing is to get out of it as quickly as you can.

As a sales professional, you know that prospecting is a major part of bringing on new business. But you also know that it can be time consuming. You not only need to search for contacts, but you also need an email address and phone number to connect with your prospects. There are many tools out there that promise to deliver these results, but they can also be complicated and expensive. We have tried many different tools as a company and SalesLoft has fulfilled its promise and has delivered results.

If you’re in sales, you understand what it’s like to have a competitive mentality and a desire to be the best. We all want to achieve success and be the top producer. And when we see other sales reps closing deal after deal we can’t help but wonder how they do it. Are you just witnessing natural born sales reps with a knack for closing deals, or is there some secret formula that they follow that sets them up for success?

Being in sales is no easy task. Our days do not normally consist of the normal 9am-5pm clock-in and clock-out. We are constantly working to sign on new business, add value to our consumers and ultimately drive revenue. With that being said, sales is unique in nature and is not for everyone. I have found that it is the little things that separate the “good” sales reps from the “great” sales reps.

Have you ever taught a sales technique and then witnessed it perfectly executed on you. How about in the most obvious situation? This story starts with years of rejecting the litany of requests from our children to buy a dog. My wife and I finally said yes. So we researched the type of dog we wanted and found the “perfect breed and breeder”. The breeder was actually too perfect, but I will get to that shortly. We decided to surprise the kids on a Friday night with our decision to buy a dog. The next day we went on our

As salespeople, we have to deal with a certain amount of uncertainty in our jobs. No matter how close a deal is to closing, in the back of our minds, we know that it’s never too late for a deal to completely fall through at the last second. We’ve all experienced it, and we’ve all been left feeling devastated and frustrated because of it. We’ve all had great sales success and unfortunately, some let downs, but I have learned that I have accomplished much more success when I recognize whether a prospect is good or bad for business in the early steps of the process.

You know how some people claim to be a “people’s person”? Well, I have found that being a people’s person is a great and difficult skill to foster. Unlike dealing with products and technology, being a people’s person involves dealing with a range of personalities every day. But I have also found that the truly gifted “people’s person” has harnessed the ability to be a successful customer service rep and a salesperson.
