You’ve had several productive calls, a promising initial meeting, scheduled a follow up, and then… nothing. No return call or email for weeks. You’ve been ghosted. This isn’t something new for salespeople, but how do you react to it? Do you stick to it or move on to something else?
Today Gina and Susanna talk about being ghosted and the different strategies to employ in various situations. They also discuss the stories we make up in our head, the lack of thought that we give to what other people prioritize, what coaching skills can bring to salespeople, how discovery can battle ghosting, at what point should you give up, and Gina goes off on a couple tangents, dropping some pro-tips that are well… very worth listening to. Plus some Halloween jokes from Susanna that may make you laugh or groan.

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.
