TSE 048: How Phillip Taylor Developed His Hobby Into a Successful Business Part 2!

PTHere is part two of my conversation with PT and some of the take aways from the second session:

  • Create an avatar or the ideal client of people that you would purchase your product or service.
  • Seek out top influencers who are in your industry and seek out opportunities to work with them and to add value to them. They will bring you to a community of your ideal prospects.
  • By running an event, you become a thought leader in the eyes of the those you serve.

PT also educated us on the reverse pitch, which is the idea of pitching those who are pitching at you. (Listen to the episode how he masterfully does this).

What are the keys to success in sales?

  1. Have a genuine heartfelt understanding of what you offer.
  2. Think long term and how to grow relationship. Ask yourself, what can I do to provide value.
  3. Being able  to quickly find for your prospects.
  4. Being organized in your communication.

How do you overcome rejections and tough times?

  • Don’t compare yourself with others.
  • Think about the positive things going on and focus on those around you who are supporting you.
  • If you are getting depressed and feeling low, go out and help others! (Wise words from PT’s mom).

TSE 047: How Phillip Taylor Developed His Hobby Into a Successful Business Part 1!

PTRecently I did an interview with Phillip Taylor (PT). He took his passion and turned it into a thriving online business. PT never considered himself as a sales person, but as he grew his hobby into a business, he recognized that sales was an important factor that his organization needed. Many entrepreneurs find themselves in the same situation where they don’t know how to sell, but have to sell. Here are some the major take away from my conversation:

What are some of the major challenges you faced as an entrepreneur?

  • Not having enough time to do all that is needed
  • Sales is tough and they don’t want to bother people
  • Not having a strong enough reach in the community
  • Not wanting to PUSH people to do something

Why do entrepreneur have a tough time selling?

Many entrepreneurs don’t want to bother people or bug them with something that they DON’T need. But if you can develop away to offer people valuable information, they will love you and come back over and over again.

How do you find people for your products or services?

Write small amount of content articles that your audience would be interested in and Google will send people to you. THINK of what your prospects/clients need and provide information related to that.

Ex: If you sell computers, maybe you can provide content such as,  “What is better, Mac or PC and why” etc.
