These are some of the most profound and known names in sales & business. Between extraordinary marketing and the persistent sales skills they have all individually made a name for themselves in the business world.
What are their best sales tips?
We are going to go through each of the names mentioned above- best tips and practices when it comes to sales & business.
“Learning is the beginning of wealth. Learning is the beginning of health. Learning is the beginning of spirituality. Searching and learning is where the miracle process all begins.”
“Approach each customer with the idea of helping him or her to solve a problem or achieve a goal, not of selling a product or service.”
“People often say motivation doesn’t last. Neither does bathing — that’s why we recommend it daily.”
"No one's going to come to your house and make your dreams come true. Everything in life is a sale and everything you want is a commission. Your greatness is limited only by the investments you make in yourself. Focus on creating and producing a future, not what happened yesterday."
“Obstacles are necessary for success because in selling, as in all careers of importance, victory comes only after many struggles and countless defeats. Yet each struggle, each defeat, sharpens your skills and strengths, your courage and your endurance, your ability and your confidence and thus each obstacle is a comrade-in-arms forcing you to become better... or quit. Each rebuff is an opportunity to move forward; turn away from them, avoid them, and you throw away your future.”
“The referral is the easiest prospect in the world to sell. Ask any professional who hates selling (accountants, architects, lawyers) -- they'll tell you that 100% of their new business comes from referrals. That's because they're not capable of making sales calls and rely on the fall-in-your-lap method of selling.”
"Organize around business functions, not people. Build systems within each business function. Let systems run the business and people run the systems. People come and go but the systems remain constant."
“I am concerned that too many people are focused too much on money and not on their greatest wealth, which is their education. If people are prepared to be flexible, keep an open mind and learn, they will grow richer and richer through the changes. If they think money will solve the problems, I am afraid those people will have a rough ride.”
"Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible."
“People are your most important commodity.”
As we see, there is a direct correlation in each of these top successful sales & entrepreneurs mindsets and words of advice. They weren’t born to think this way, they learned to think this way.
Take it, learn it, apply it, and teach it. It's time for you to be the EXPERT in your field.
