TSE 572: Quickest Way To Get Sales Results

Donald Kelly, The Sales Evangelist, Sales Podcast

How do you get the quickest sales result? You can’t expect sales to keep coming when you’re not even doing anything. You can’t expect the same either if you thought sending one email was enough to draw them in. You’ve got to push harder than that!

Make it personal.

Emails are great but, especially if it’s a cold one, they can’t even see you. Who knows if there was a human being behind those electronic words. So figure out a way to make a personal connection by speaking with your prospect. Pick up the phone and chat with them. Then be consistent.


Follow a process and take action.

Figure out the best thing to reach them besides sending an email. It could be seeking a referral or simply picking up the phone. Again, be consistent.

Try different approaches.

Try out multiple approaches. You could initially send an email and then make that phone call. Follow it up on social media via Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, or Facebook. Regardless, you have to take action. Again and again and again, be consistent.

It takes time and effort.

Building relationships take time and creativity. Great salespeople have a belief stronger than their resistance. A rejection now may no longer be the same next week. Be willing to open your mouth and take action.

Today’s Major Takeaway:

What are you doing right now to make something happen? Take action. Be consistent. Make it a habit and you will see positive results.

TSE 034: Mastering The Art of DISCOVER Questions™ with Deb Calvert

GreenBackground_Headshot.000One of the most important skills that ANY sales professional needs to master is the ability to effectively ask questions. From being able to connect with folks on a personal level to understanding what challenges they are facing. A successful seller MUST master the art of properly asking questions.

During this episode I had the pleasure of interviewing Deb Calvert and discussing principles from her book DISCOVER Questions™. Here are some of the major take aways from her book:

  • The right questions can help the prospect discover value for themselves
  • DISCOVER Questions™ also allow the seller to be more human
  • When asking questions, don’t ask manipulating questions seeking to back someone into a corner or hit them with a “gotcha”
  • Ask questions that will stimulate the mind of the prospect so they can really THINK for themselves
  • Before your call or a visit with a prospect, know what you need to learn from them and ask questions with a purpose
