Episode 172 – Don’t Push – Pull with Nick Capozzi

Episode Overview

We all know that Gina champions the idea of telling stories to create connections and make sales. Today she may have met her match. Nick Capozzi, Head of Storytelling at Demostack, joins the show. Nick built his sales skills with fifteen years in cruise industry. But he wasn’t the cheesy, pushy salesman on deck. He had conversations with guests, answered their questions, and helped solve their problems, which then organically drew them to his onboard sales presentations. 

 This episode isn’t just about stories that you tell in order to build relationships and sell to clients. It’s also about asking the right questions to prompt prospects to tell their story to you, which in turn creates trust, which leads to a sale. Beyond that it’s also about the stories we tell ourselves. When we doubt ourselves, and worry about rejection or failure, are those true voices in our heads or something manifested from our past or those around us? 

This is a fun, complex, educational and thought-provoking episode with one of the pioneers of social selling.
