Your personal brand and image impact everything about your sales process. Creating and maintaining a professional self-care routine is necessary to put your best foot forward to make the most money and foster the most connections. In today’s episode of the Sales Evangelist, Donald shares some quick tips for any seller to improve their confidence and build a personal brand that reflects the hard work you do each day.
Sometimes, we neglect the emotional for the physical:
- Sure, scoring that meeting or closing the deal can be nice. However, it’s not as nice when it comes at a cost for our own physical and emotional needs as human beings.
- The Sales Evangelist is launching a course to build your professional self-care routine; check out the information here: thesalesevangelist.com/free-sales-training
Build a positive attitude and confidence:
- One of the biggest things to help you be more effective is confidence.
- Even if you don’t know a lot about the industry or individual, learn the company basics.
- Research the company to have more poignant discussions about the material to drive confidence.
- If you are genuinely interested in the conversation with the potential buyer, you’ll inherently come across as more confident and competent in the conversation.
Dress to the customer’s needs:
- If you’re meeting with an executive or higher-level individual, dress to their level. Leave the hoodie at home and wear what instills confidence in yourself and the buyer.
- Especially if you work from home, dressing professionally will make an impact where lower dress scales are more common.
Your personal brand is critical:
- Pay attention to how you project yourself online and on social media.
- Amid a potential recession and the Great Resignation, ensure your content, language, and tone are transferable wherever you want to go.
