To say we’re facing unprecedented times would be an understatement. Supply chain delays, staffing shortages, and rising costs are leading many companies to pull back and slow their sales efforts.
Rather than pulling back, top-performing companies are accelerating their selling efforts, using new strategies to connect and convert buyers. Times of economic uncertainty are always followed by growth, and accelerating sales efforts today will result in increased market share tomorrow.
In this talk we explore today’s market challenges and how successful companies are approaching sales differently, positioning themselves for the boom that is to come.
Is your team struggling to sell in today’s economy? Finding it difficult to reach and connect with busy buyers? Is it nearing impossible to create some predictability in your sales revenue? Here’s your problem – selling has changed, and you haven’t changed with it.
Based on my latest book, the Unstoppable Sales Machine, this talk outlines the key aspects of selling that have changed and how sales professionals, sales leaders, and their teams can equip themselves to not only survive but thrive.
In this presentation, Shawn shares what has changed about selling in today’s economy and what you can do to counteract the impacts of these changes and rise above your competition.
Sales professionals selling complex products and services often fall apart when attempting to close the sale. Facing objections, questions, and pushback throws them off their game, forcing many to resort to a simpler close using discounts or markdowns.
This approach may result in closing a sale, but they hurt profit margins, reduce commissions, and create unrealistic expectations for buyers.
In this talk we discuss proven strategies to avoid discounts and markdowns altogether, making every sale an opportunity to maximize profits.
High-performing business leaders, sales professionals, and entrepreneurs have mastered something that others haven’t: they adopt behaviours that ensure their ongoing success.
Uncertainty, distractions, and interruptions can often throw even the most grounded business professionals off their game. Even after identifying new behaviours that can lead to success, many professionals abandon these behaviours after less than 30 days, despite the best of intentions.
In this motivating talk, we discuss the proven behaviours that high-performing individuals use to accelerate their success and realize their biggest goals.
Today’s customers are overwhelmed with information. The information they’re consuming is increasingly influenced by online algorithms that only serve up what each customer desires. The result is a customer who is highly demanding. Moreover, once they decide on what they want, they expect it to be immediately available.
To retain today’s customers and maximize new selling opportunities we need to shift our focus to empowering our customers to buy.
In this talk, we’ll discuss how to provide a customer experience that supports customer retention and repeatedly generates new opportunities to sell.
