    How to Uncover the Decision Maker and Qualify the Buying Process

    How to Uncover the Decision Maker and Qualify the Buying Process

    In this episode of The Sell or Die Podcast, we’re talking about uncovering the decision maker when it comes to closing a sale. We’ve all been there. You’re getting closer and closer to making the deal happen, and you think you’re talking to the person who is going to make that decision. And just when you think you have it, they tell you they need to run it up the chain. It’s super frustrating! What we want to tell you today is that when you ask the right questions, you can uncover who the decision maker is and sell to them much sooner in the buying process. 
    Points we’ll go over include:
    Asking the right questions Getting all the decision makers in one place Beginning with the outcome in mind Die hards, we want you to take personal responsibility for your sales. If you get close to a sale and you suddenly realize you’re not talking to the decision maker, don’t blame the customer. YOU didn’t find out who the decision maker really was. It’s on you to take ownership and learn from your mistakes so you can do better in the future. 
    To learn more about uncovering the decision maker in the sales process, be sure to listen to episode 539 of The Sell or Die Podcast.

    Mistakes to Avoid With Your Sales Pitch

    Mistakes to Avoid With Your Sales Pitch

    In this episode of The Sell or Die Podcast, we are giving you a real-life example of what NOT to do when making a sales pitch. We recently received a terrible sales pitch from a person (who shall remain nameless), but we thought it would be a great example to share with you, die hards. There’s no better teacher than real life, and we think this example will give you some insight into what to avoid when pitching and how to do better. 
    Points we’ll go over include: 
    The bad sales pitch example What sucked about this pitch A better way to pitch There is no reason to engage in phony and spammy sales tactics. There is a much better way! Focus on creating win-win situations. That’s what people want to buy into. 
    To learn more from this sales pitch example, be sure to listen to episode 538 of The Sell or Die Podcast.

Episode 538 on the money

Jeffrey and Jennifer provide great, in your face, advice that is easy to implement if you are willing to do it. On episode 538 they broke down a bad sales pitch. I get and give many pitches as a small business owner. I will definitely make some tweaks after this episode.
