    Stories B4 Statements

    Stories B4 Statements

    Which comes first, the story or the statement? When you’re trying to implement ethical influence into your sales process, the best way to start is with a story. I’m not sure if you’ve noticed but that is exactly how I start each and every one of my episodes.
     
    First, what is the difference between a story and statement? A story is a narrative intended to engage, amuse, or instruct listeners or viewers. Statements are written or spoken expressions intended to persuade listeners or viewers. 
     
    In my opinion, stories need to come first because they are designed to engage the heart before bringing in the head. Sales are not made with the head. They are made when you manage to entangle the heart with the head. 
     
    Stories also help you to stay top of mind in people’s memories and there are so many that help to put various situations into perspective.
     
    Listen to learn the three key insights: 
     
    What ethical influence has to do with stories and statements.  Why ethical influence relies more on stories than statements.  How to start an ethically influential story in 6 simple words.   
    Which stories should you be telling in your business?

    Calculate Your Worth

    Calculate Your Worth

    Would you say your net worth affects your self-worth? For many, this is a true statement. Not because money is everything, but because when you make more money your mind believes you are worth more. Why does this matter? 
     
    Back in 2003 I had just come off of making my first million dollars online. It was during this time that I would take a limo to and from the airport when I was leaving on business trips. The limo driver was a friend of mine and I enjoyed my time on the trips, but the trips cost about $6,000 per year. 
     
    My bookkeeper at the time, Denise McIntyre let me know that she wasn’t comfortable with those rides so she said if I could monetize them, I could keep them. I created a Limo Consulting hour where I would do coaching calls on my rides to and from the airport. 
     
    Guess what. I had a waiting list that went on for weeks. Learn why the cost of those Limo Consultations was actually not equal to my actual worth and why knowing yours is so important. The three key insights we’ll review are: 
     
    What calculating your worth is in your personal and professional life. Why calculating your worth is important and relevant to self-worth. How to calculate your worth on a step-by-step basis and share it.   
    So, what is your magic hourly number? Is it more or less than you thought?

    History’s Greatest Salesman

    History’s Greatest Salesman

    Selling through collaboration rather than confrontation is a key skill that most successful salespeople cultivate to their advantage. One of the greatest salesmen in history used this same skill to sell the hope of Christianity to the Greeks. Who was this amazing salesman? 
     
    Saul of Tarsus was a tentmaker and a Jew who was staunchly against the movement of Christianity. In fact, he likely was responsible for the deaths of several people. It wasn’t until he was traveling to Damascus that he had a vision that changed his life and thus he became Paul the Apostle.

    His letters make up the vast majority of the New Testament and represent a great lesson in sales for all to learn. You see Paul started off his sale of hope to the Greeks by first granting them his respect and commenting on their altar to the Unknown Deity. 
     
    He then paints a picture of who the Unknown Deity is and why He is the greatest of all. By the end of his speech they were enthralled by the dramatism of his story and the vivid experience he created. He took their already extant beliefs and gave them a new point of view to see them from. 
     
    Listen in to learn more about these three key insights: 
     
    What the definition is of being a great salesperson in your field. Why the art and science of selling is the world’s most lucrative skill. How to sell yourself to others without the risk of embarrassment.   
    This is not an episode meant to dig into the foundations of Christianity but instead to see how Paul made the spread of Christianity possible through expert salesmanship. What are your thoughts? Was Paul one of the greatest salespeople in history?

    Anatomy of Movements

    Anatomy of Movements

    When you create a movement you create a community of members who are highly engaged with you and amongst themselves. Creating a movement is significantly more lucrative than finding a market because of that engagement. I’m sharing everything you need to know about the elements of a movement, why they outperform markets, and how you can monetize them. 
     
    I didn’t truly realize the significance of creating a movement until the end of 2008. We were in the middle of the Great Recession and I had just finished selling over 800 spots in my Teleseminar Secrets program. The only issue was that the majority of those sales came from affiliates which have a higher refund rate. 
     
    My goal was to hold on to as many of those students as possible, so I created a Facebook page for them to go to and interact with each other. This was pre-Facebook groups so I did what I could to maximize the use of the platform. Engagement was higher than ever amongst my students and I ended up only having to give about 30 refunds. Which is amazing. 
     
    Why did this work? Because rather than sell to a market, I created a movement for my students. I gave them a place to connect and engage and learn from one another as they implemented the information they learned in the course. Listen to learn how you can create your own movement and retain the majority of your students and sales. Your three key insights are: 
     
    What the three functional elements of constructing any movement are. Why creating movements in business outperform finding markets.  How to convert the three movement elements into money making tools.   
    What kind of movement will you make?     
     
    In This Episode: 
    [01:31] - Welcome back to All Selling Aside. 
    [02:15] - Why selling is fun.
    [04:21] - Learn the three key insights you’ll learn about creating movements.
    [06:11] - The year is 2008 and Alex is in his fourth year of Teleseminar Secrets.
    [09:03] - Listen as Alex shares his stick strategy for that time. 
    [11:26] - How did he boost client retention from mostly affiliate sales? 
    [12:27] - Why Facebook became his movement creation platform. 
    [14:11] - People want the movement more than the content. 
    [14:35] - What is a movement? 
    [16:20] - You don’t have customers or clients in a movement you have a member. 
    [16:53] - Learn the three functional elements of a movement. 
    New vocabulary New community  New leaders or role models [20:06] - Why are movements more profitable than a market?
    [26:06] - How do you convert the three movement elements into money making tools?

    Accelerated Learning Tips

    Accelerated Learning Tips

    Despite being completely down and out after a failed business venture that was financed by my family, my love of learning was the key to my healing. I was depressed and felt like a complete failure, but I knew that I could learn and overcome. The teaching of Nightingale-Conant became my lifeline.
     
    What I realized was that my teaching in school never taught me HOW to learn which is important. I was never taught to read the summary first and actually read the table of comments so that I could solidify concepts before digging into the actual learning.
     
    The way that I have found has worked best for me is accelerated learning. Listen in as I share what this method is and how you can implement it today to start learning every day. Your three key insights are: 
     
    What accelerated learning is by definition… and who it’s ideal for. Why accelerated learning is the fastest, easiest way to change your life.  How accelerated learning is activated quickly and easily - step-by-step.

Learning at Super Speed!

Alex’s episode on Accelerated Learning Tips (Ep. 116) is game changing.

In under 30 minutes, I learned principles of how to learn quicker and actually retain what I learn.

His five steps for accelerating learning was very simple and very important. I can see how my bouncing from topic to topic or book to book has been ruining my learning abilities.

I especially related to the evil twins that destroy productivity (I’m guilty of these!)… procrastination and perfectionism.

This episode clarified so much and gave me simple tweaks to how I approach learning in general. It’s a lesson I’ll carry on through life.

Now, on to listen to this episode and read Alex’s notes three more times.

Thank you, Alex!

H2H is EVERYTHING!

Human to human. Not B2B or B2C. So simple and so applicable. My lightbulb moment was, that as consumers become more and more aware of sales and marketing tactics, it's CRITICAL to be a human being. We as content creators have to be authentic, ethical and human. Funnels are great, offers are great, but you have to bring your most authentic sense of self to connect, and sell. Awesome podcast Alex.

Homschlrmom ,

Everyone is in sales...of yourself!

I have been in jobseeking on and off for 18 months. I’m also self-employed. I came to this podcast based on Lori Ruff’s 5-Minute Drill for Executive Networking success. My takeaway from this is that actions speak louder than words. I loved the quote from Einstein that if you aren’t learning you are dying. And that we are all winners because we are here! I believe that is a divine decision, and another reason to believe in our purpose. Going on the the see site next to find my verb.
