Why You Need To Believe Sales Success Is Not Situational

first_imgSuccess in sales isn’t situational. I need offer no greater explanation than success itself is individual, a statement that is easily supported by the evidence. That said, here is the case for success in sales being individual, not situational.General Truth 1: Everything Is the SameImagine the most successful sales organization. The salespeople who make up that sales force has a top twenty-percent, a middle sixty-percent, and a bottom twenty-percent. These salespeople work for the same company, sell the same thing to similar clients, and have the same prices. This sales force also shares the same competitors. Why do some do so much better than others, even when they have the same manager?With so many factors being consistent across the sales force, why such huge variations in results? This eliminates any argument that sales success is situational.General Truth 2: None of the AdvantagesA small company with little money, a small footprint, and no real compelling differentiation competes against a larger, mature, professional competitor. The larger competitor has the advantage of size, scale, reputation, and all the things a salesperson might imagine as helpful in creating a preference and easily winning a client’s business. Despite what appear to be advantages, the smaller, scrappy company beats Goliath soundly in a deal for which they shouldn’t have even been considered.With so many positives on the side of the larger competitor, how do they lose to a smaller competitor? If you believe that this situation should favor the larger company, you misunderstand success in sales.General Truth 3: Your Approach Is a VariableTwo salespeople call on the same client. One of them had an approach that allowed them to create value is the interaction, helping their prospective clients understand their world, explore change, and better recognize what they need to do to move from their current state to a better future state. The second salesperson provided an experience that was not perceived as being helpful to the prospective client.Even when two competitors are evenly matched, clients have little trouble deciding who they want to buy from and work with in the future.Attributes In Your ControlThe discipline necessary to nurture your dream clients, prospect daily, and follow up to acquire a meeting provides an advantage to the individual who commits themselves to the work. The consistent pursuit of new opportunities is individual.Learn Anthony’s core strategies & tactics for sales success at any level with The Only Sales Guide You’ll Ever NeedYour attitude is a personal decision, a choice of monumental significance to your results. Being positive, optimistic, future-oriented, and empowered provides an advantage that is unavailable to those who are cynical, pessimistic, and disempowered.It isn’t easy to move from being self-oriented to other-oriented. Even though caring is a superpower, it takes time and energy to put other people first. You can choose to make it your goal to help others produce better results than they can without you, and in doing so, improve your individual success in sales.There is something about competition that provides focus. There are consequences for losing in the great game of sales. Those who possess a competitive spirit work to win, providing them an advantage over those who believe and behave as if it is enough to show up to work.Much of success in sales, or anything else, comes from being willing to figure out how to accomplish hard things, often things with no defined right answer. Success is more commonly found by the resourceful than those with resources. The advantage belongs to those who figure things out.Of all the questions I am asked, the most frequent query is when one should give up on a prospective client. The reason some succeed where others fail is that they are pig-headed enough to persist when others give up. The rewards accrue to those who persist.Professional sales is unlike other roles. You have more individual freedom than most positions, as well as greater accountability. When you find accountability and freedom together, initiative is what is required to succeed. Those who take action without being compelled by another person or external factor perform better than those who need to be prodded to do their work.Variables In SkillThose who are willing to learn to ask for and obtain commitments, linking together meetings that provide their prospect the conversations necessary to change, do better than those who don’t ask. They also generate better results than those who believe the buyer should drive the process and that their role makes them subservient.No more pushy sales tactics. The Lost Art of Closing shows you how to proactively lead your customer and close your sales. Salespeople who know how to trade value for the commitment of time, who have a firm conviction of their ability to help their prospects improve their results, and who persist in their pursuit find they accomplish their aim. What one person can learn, another person can also learn.You need stories in sales. The ability to share stories about where your client is now and why compel change. Storytelling applied to a better future state and how to get there are also valuable to your dream clients. The ability to present ideas compellingly is a skill you can obtain, should you want to improve your results.One salesperson may have a better ability to see their client’s challenge and its root cause more clearly than another salesperson. They can also ask better, more powerful, and more compelling questions. Diagnosis is a required individual skill.There may not be a more critical skill to develop that will do more to improve your individual results in sales than business acumen and situational knowledge. You simply cannot be consultative without being able to offer your advice and your counsel. It takes time and effort, which makes it something with your control, should you want it.Success in sales is individual. If you want to improve your results, it is within your power to do so. Like success in anything, it isn’t situational. It’s a decision. Essential Reading!

I-League matches begin on Saturday, yet no title sponsor in sight

first_imgDespite having concluded a three-year broadcast deal with TEN Sports for the I-League and the Federation Cup, IMG-Reliance is still groping in the dark for the title sponsor of the premier league of the country beginning on Saturday.And the chances of finding a sponsor in the next two days are extremely bleak. If IMG-Reliance, the commercial partners of the All India Football Federation (AIFF), eventually fails to find any, it would be the third straight year when I-League will be played without a title sponsor.Even the sale of broadcast rights was not a win-win situation for the AIFF at all. Although they were sold on multiple platforms, they did not include radio, an IMG-Reliance official confirmed.It is sad situation how IMG-Reliance completely forgot about radio, which remains one of the most followed media in a country of more than billion people.The only consolation for the AIFF – and IMG-Reliance – is that a deal with a regional television channel is set to be concluded on Friday.”We have got pretty less money than last year. We have almost finalised a deal with Kolkata-based Channel 10 for the regional rights but the amount is certainly not a patch on what we were expecting,” a IMG-Reliance official told Mail Today.Another embarrassment for the AIFF and IMG-Reliance was the last-minute pullout by TEN Sports from telecasting the Federation Cup, which concluded last week.When IMG-Reliance failed to find a producer for the second most important tournament of the country, the company desperately asked TEN Sports to do the production too.TEN Sports, owned by the Dubai-based TAJ Television, not only declined to produce but could not telecast the tournament in the absence of live pictures.Speaking about the Federation Cup fiasco, the IMG-Reliance official said that they were left in the lurch because they couldn’t finalise a production partner as TEN had said that they would not be able to undertake production work.For the I-League matches, IMG-Reliance has given the production rights to a Delhi based production house while the matches in Bengal will be produced by a regional production house.AIFF says it is helpless in this area as it has sold an unusually long, 15-year, commercial rights to IMG-Reliance for Rs 700 crore, starting 2010.All this shows a lack of home work and absence of proper planning while concluding various deals.IMG-Reliance is yet to crack the title sponsorship conundrum.It says that the lack of quality coverage and the fan following being limited to select cities are the main reasons for the tepid response from corporate houses.ONGC was the title sponsor for several years, but surprisingly even they are not interested any more even though their team has qualified for the I-League.The league’s popularity has nosedived and only matches in Kolkata, involving the Big Two – Mohun Bagan and East Bengal – seem to draw sizeable crowds while empty stands elsewhere.AIFF says it can’t interfere in IMG-Reliance’s affairs. “AIFF cannot afford to build its own stadiums and that is one of the reasons why we can’t organise majority of the matches under floodlights,” said an official.”Until sufficient infrastructure is created and we have control over it, we cannot satisfy the demands of the sponsors and broadcasters.”advertisementlast_img read more

Giannis Spearheaded Second-half Rally for Milwaukee, But Raptors Beat Bucks 92-89

first_imgMILWAUKEE (AP) — DeMar DeRozan scored 32 points and the Toronto Raptors squandered a 25-point lead late in the third quarter before holding on for a 92-89 victory Thursday night over the Milwaukee Bucks to take their first-round playoff series in six games.Giannis Antetokounmpo spearheaded the second-half rally for Milwaukee. He had 34 points.But the Bucks finished one comeback short.Cory Joseph had five points in a 9-0 run in the final 2 minutes, including a 3-pointer with 1:27 left, to help stave off the pesky Bucks.The Raptors move on to face the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference semifinals in a series that starts Monday. They’ll need to work on finishing off opponents in the second half.Jason Terry’s 3 with 3:06 left gave the Bucks an 80-78 lead, completing an unlikely comeback from the 25-point deficit with 5:16 left in the third quarter. The Raptors looked as if they were on cruise control after DeMarre Carroll’s 3 gave them the 71-46 advantage.The furious effort appeared to sap the energy of the young Bucks. Even Antetokounmpo, a renowned gym rat, looked tired with his hands on hips as he caught his breath during fourth-quarter breaks. He played 47 minutes.Antetokounmpo finished 13 of 23 from the field but was 2 of 6 in the fourth.The Raptors could finally breathe easy after DeRozan went 2 of 2 from the foul line with 3.1 seconds to play for a three-point lead. Tony Snell’s inbounds pass on the ensuing possession was intercepted by DeRozan.Rebounding from 2-1 series deficit and an embarrassing 27-point loss in Game 3, the Raptors will face Cleveland a year after losing to the Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference finals in six games.Kyle Lowry added 13 points for Toronto.TIP-INSRaptors: Entering Thursday, Toronto was 0-4 all-time in Game 6s on the road, and 0-3 in coach Dwane Casey’s six-year tenure with the team. That stretch started in 2014, when the Raptors lost a first-round series to the Brooklyn Nets, who were then coached by current Bucks coach Jason Kidd. … DeRozan was 7 of 13 for a game-high 16 points in the first half. … The Raptors lost three of four games to Cleveland in the regular season.Bucks: Khris Middleton made the only 3 of the first half for Milwaukee, which missed its eight other shots from behind the arc. The Raptors outscored the Bucks 28-22 in the paint, negating Milwaukee’s strength. … The franchise hasn’t won a playoff series since advancing to the Eastern Conference finals in 2001.GENARO C.

Employers Flock to San Antonio Job Fair to Recruit Veterans Military Spouses

first_imgAt the Texas Workforce Commission’s Hiring Red, White and You job fair in San Antonio last week, veterans, transitioning military personnel and their spouses found themselves in high demand by local and national employers.The fair was part of a statewide, day-after-Veterans-Day hiring event at 27 locations. In San Antonio, the fair drew 125 companies and hundreds of candidates.“It’s huge,” Gail Hathaway, executive director of Workforce Solutions Alamo, told the San Antonio Express-News. “[Companies] see the value in the venue and the number of individuals that they get to meet with or talk with,” Hathaway said.Employers interviewed at the fair said they came to hire individuals with a strong work ethic, an ability to work as part of a team and a diverse skill set.Gov. Greg Abbott (R) appeared at the fair and said the city was a role model for linking transitioning military service members with successful civilian careers. “Yesterday’s a day when we thanked the veterans who served,” Abbott said. “Today is the day we send thanks by focusing employers on hiring those veterans.”James Starcher, a contract specialist at Joint Base San Antonio, had no trouble grabbing the attention of prospective employers. By noon, he’d had several interviews. “They all pretty much offered me a job,” he said.For Gerry Diaz, a recruiter for Webhead, the fair was a ripe opportunity for attracting new talent to the Web design and security company, particularly in light of the 1.7 percent unemployment rate for information technology professionals.“An event like this where you can reach out to those transitioning vets … it’s mining gold,” Diaz said.
