    "Just be yourself" is Some of the Worst Sales Advice Ever

    "Just be yourself" is Some of the Worst Sales Advice Ever

    When a sales rep is told, "Just be yourself" on calls, instead of being totally prepared, that is some of the worst advice ever.
    Unless the rep is a skilled, knowledgeable, experienced, prepared person already, just being themself can result in disaster. Maybe you've been there.
    Art breaks this down, and discusses what we DO need to do in order to become the best version of ourselves, who is authentic, smooth, and connects at a human level.
    Also he references the newly revised site, with lots of valuable training resources, both free and premium, http://smartcalling.com.

    There is a difference between simple price comments, like, "Wow, that's more expensive than I thought," and real price objections, like, "We don't have that in the budget."
    The problem for a lot of salespeople, is that at the first sound of a price comment, they begin dropping price. Unnecessarily.
    You'll hear Art's experience with a tree service owner who cut his profit in half, and what you can and should do when you hear simple price statements and comments.
    And, to get's Art's free masterclass, "How to Easily Handle Sales Resistance and Objections--Without Using Goofy and Uncomfortable Rebuttals," go to http://SmartCalling.Training/objections

    293 Do this Instead of Trying to OVERCOME Objections

    Most sales training on objections contradicts how normal people think and speak. Because, it suggests you tell someone they are wrong.
     
    And what is the result of that? The opposite of the intended result: they become more defensive. And it feels sleazy for the person saying it.
     
    In this episode Art gives the professional, conversational process to help lead someone through a process, so they will first be open to your ideas, and eventually change their mind, feeling like it is their idea.
     
    And he offers a free objections masterclass at http://Smartcalling.training/objections
