Read a great book on the plane last week. Martin Limbeck is a sales trainer and author of “No Is Short For Next Opportunity.” His ideas reminded me of what I learned from one of my mentors. The most powerful words a great salesmen has in his repertoire is “next.” Don’t let the “no’s” get you down. If you are doing the right thing the next opportunity is right around the corner.
Limbeck has some other great ideas to share. Here are three of his tips for sealing the deal:
- Stand by what you sell: You have to believe in your product or company.
- Set goals every day for future prospects: To succeed, be sure your sales funnel is never empty. Make it a habit, like brushing your teeth.
- Prepare for anything: Write answers to every question or objection a potential client could dream up. Writing them down will help you commit them to memory.
