I'm sure you've seen the old salesmen in movies who always have a sleazy, slimy look on their face and can't seem to say anything without feeling like they're about to sell something.
Well, that's not what selling is supposed to be.
Selling is one of the most honorable professions out there because it requires you to truly care about other people. You're not trying to convince someone into buying something they don't want. Instead, you're helping them find what they need so that they'll feel more confident inside themselves.
For example, let's imagine that you're coaching clients to build an internet-based business, and for your first session, you offer a free session where they'll learn some crucial skills and tools they can apply today to get results.
Once this person experiences the value of what you have to offer firsthand, there will be no need to convince them with anything more.
Truth be told, selling is not for the faint of heart. We're constantly on the hunt for our next prospect and in a world where everyone is out to get you, it can be exhausting.
It seems like every time we turn around there is someone else trying to sell us something- whether that be an idea or a product. The thing about selling though is that if you're doing it right, people will want what you have to offer.
Many of us hate selling on a much more gut level.
The reason it makes your skin crawl is because of those two simple letters: NO. To put it simply, rejection hurts. Even when you know it's not a personal rejection, it can still sting when you go to great effort to explain your product and the prospect, in the end, says ‘No’. There are many things you can do to build up confidence.
Many people also have issues with selling online because they don't want to deal with getting rejected all day long by prospects that say no or worse yet never respond at all!
You may feel like giving up but I'm here today as a web marketer who has been there before and I will tell you how I overcame my own sales resistance so that now I love talking about my products and services.
