Episode 185 – The Sales Dating Game

Episode Overview

Back by popular demand, it’s just the ladies going rogue and sharing their insights and unique perspective on sales. Today they are talking about the correlation between selling and dating and relationships. Discussing how new prospects are always exciting, sometimes after you close the deal the effort to keep the client happy drops off, wondering if someone is playing the field when you think they’re committed, the importance of consistent and honest communication and building trust, the difficulty of walking away after investing so much into something, knowing that feeling of connection and alignment,  and playing the long game.

They then shift to the topic of humor in sales. Using humor to disarm a client, to get through and awkward moment, and to be vulnerable and put people at ease. Gina talks about the keys of repetition and contrast, relatability, delivering the unexpected, and paying attention to audience behavior.

More About Susanna

After graduating from Cambridge University in Music and Education, Susanna took her first sales role selling advertising space on websites.

She’s always been intrigued by the unfair negative stigma associated with sales and the way that after their initial excitement to work in sales, people will do everything they can to avoid actual prospecting.

With 14 years of experience in recruitment, Susanna challenges this mindset through her successful business sourcing sales professionals into recruitment roles.

Susanna decided to become a Sales Gravy Master Trainer because Sales Gravy’s vision matches her own beliefs and values.

She is committed to providing excellence and dedication to all of her trainees so that they can achieve their goals and succeed in sales.
