Bizcast: Bits about books – In Conversation with Diane Helbig, author, Succeed Without ‘Selling’
- Diane Helbig ’s book dispels common myths about selling and closing sales. One of these commonly held beliefs is that everyone we meet is a potential customer. This is a complete fallacy. We are told that just being convincing or eloquent will result in a sale. This is wrong, obviously. The only way there can be a sale is when the customer has a need for our product.
- Not every conversation or engagement has to end with a sale closing. The very attempt to lead every conversation to closing creates a negative impression and can in fact lead people away from the conversation.
- The effort on the part of the salesperson should, instead, be in providing help and information, that genuinely engages the other person and benefits them in a positive way.
These and more insights from the ground in this great episode of Bits About Books.
