Episode 237 – Opera vs. Playboy Style Selling

Episode Overview

Are you ready to have some fun injected into learning about sales and multiplying your revenue? Gina is here for you with the hilarious and animated author and consultant, David Newman to do just that. David shares his personal experience of initially avoiding sales until he discovered his natural ability to make people feel comfortable, transforming him into an unexpected sales guru. This was a catalyst to his book ‘Do It! Selling’ which he describes as the seller’s guide for those that hate selling. They discuss the importance of targeting the best prospects—those who want, rather than need. From disqualifying early to painting a vivid picture of the future, David offers practical tips to help sellers connect with clients’ personal and professional aspirations. Don’t miss David’s excellent analogy of opera vs. Playboy style selling which is well… pretty brilliant.
