Most people blather-on to prospective customers about all of the stuff they love about their product or service, and then wonder why the prospect doesn’t “get it”. This session will demonstrate and then help you to state your business in a brief, targeted way so a prospective customer will appreciate your value, and get emotionally involved enough to want to know more about your offerings. The panel will share how this approach has helped them build successful businesses, and how they have adapted the concepts to match their own personalities, so they don’t even sound like they are “selling”.

  • Thanks for investing this time I promise to get you out on time. Before I start: Confession—I ’m Joe Marr and I am a …..SM…there I said it! Another confession; I don ’t do sales training. [pause] I help people develop their own strategy and skill in use of a system and psychology to gain deeper trust relationships with other people—and the sales just happen. Everybody ok with that? Concerned about me trying to make a sale with you today—well you can relax about that. In fact I ’ll make all of you a promise. I promise not to sell you anything, if you promise not to try and buy anything. There’s plenty of fear out there, and I’m sure in some of your companies there’s some fear about making sales calls, and mostly because there is a fear about looking like a salesperson, I’ve also come to the conclusion that there is also a lot a fear about even acknowledging that sales is necessary.
