The Sales Evangelist

Diversity is a result of numerous kinds of efforts, and we’re focusing today on underrepresented sellers. As a sales leader, how can you offer a hand up to underrepresented sellers?

Marchello Arcelay is a waste stream analyst in Metro Atlanta and he works with small to medium-sized companies to provide them with sustainable waste solutions. He helps small to medium-sized restaurants or Fortune 500 companies who want to reduce their carbon footprint. He also has a show called Cocktails with Chello and he streams it live on Facebook, YouTube, and LinkedIn. 

Helping new and underrepresented people 

  • You have to exercise caution when helping people of color in the sales industry. Help others with willingness and an open mind. 
  • It’s important to create different milestones to ensure that the people you are helping are on track. 
  • When you help others, you just don’t help them with a certain aspect. Your goal is to help them through the entire process. 
  • You don’t just give them the tools without teaching them how to use them or without giving them a https://thesalesevangelist.com/episode1401/ https://thesalesevangelist.com/episode1401/
  • It’s equally important that you hold them accountable for the milestones that you give them. 
  • You don’t need to go straight away to help. First, you need to https://thesalesevangelist.com/episode1275/ https://thesalesevangelist.com/episode1275/build trust and rapport. Go for a casual conversation at first. 
  • You can also use social media platforms. Create groups and promote them to your network. Tell them about your goals of helping other people, especially those who are new to sales or those who are from underrepresented groups. 
  • Don’t limit your help and offer to people of color because then, you’re not promoting diversity and you won’t get the momentum that you want and need.

Are you sick of crickets? The pain of sales reps continually reaching out with phone calls and emails and not receiving a response is real.

85% of people prefer text over email and phone calls because they want to engage in a conversation. All text messaging is not equal. Customers respond to people, NOT BOTS. Be more like people and start having conversations that end in conversions.
