  • Serve Your Client Better With This Action


    (This is a concept that will be discussed in our upcoming webinar, “How To Determine Client Motive,” a live event April 25,  12p EST

    Have you ever been in a buying situation where you feel like the salesperson is probing for something—trying to get you to say something that will allow him or her to close you? Of course. We’ve all been there.

    Have a Discussion that Generates Real Leads

    (This is a concept that will be discussed in our upcoming webinar, “21st Century Lead Generation,” a live event March 28,  12p EST

    I struggled for years thinking that we sales and marketing professionals play too loosely with the term lead. To me, a lead isn’t a true lead until there’s a conversation with the prospect that determines if they have an interest, if they have the money to pay for it, and if they are committed to fixing the problem they tell you they have.

    When we don’t clearly define lead, any person who shows up in our space becomes a “lead.” And that’s not how you create business. That’s how you become tired…quickly.
