Attract the Right Job Or Clientele:

No matter the size of a business or entrepreneurship, most of us are ready to improve results. An excellent strategy is to learn from the companies far ahead of their competitors. By reading what they do and how they do it lends insight.  While entrepreneurs may not scale to a multi-million dollar corporation level, we can heed the lessons we see.

One article spoke of two gigantic companies that use one strategy exceptionally well.  However, the same technique applies to the sales professionals within corporations, retail businesses,  and entrepreneurship both in-person or online.  

My Story:  The Corporate Sales Effort

As a professional salesperson, I quickly learned that listening and asking questions about what I hear raises the curiosity of people sitting across.  Sharing personal stories and laughing all the while helped to build a bond between us.  Each relationship grew to become the basis for prospects asking permission to buy from me. 

Seek out the natural commonalities between you and your prospects to gain trust and build the business. My extra touch is in over-delivering value, such as customer care.

My prospective clients’ decisions for moving forward were never about the product or service.  Why? Many companies sold similar offerings providing numerous options.  Instead, it is my attention to the client, becoming familiar with their history, priorities, and then serving them well that becomes the game-changer.  In return, the reward becomes repeat business, referrals, and testimonials. 

Sadly, most people miss out on opportunities because they believe my approach to be too time-consuming. Likewise, the same occurs online. Time and again, new connections will approach me on LinkedIn asking, ‘what do you do?’  But even worse are the incorrect assumptions.  One person wrote, ‘I see you are in the shipping industry.’ What!

Each time, I’m baffled by why people do not take an extra moment to read my profile before sending their unwanted messages.  The rush demonstrates only caring about the sale, not serving the prospective client well. They are anything but ready to improve results.

We all need to adjust to online sales and work on our own.  However, we can apply the essential skills of in-person sales excellence:

  1. Customer care that includes empathy, serving, and building relationships
  2. The anticipation of client needs and developing services behind the scenes.
  3. Partnering with those who can enhance new services

Learning From The Big Corporations Using This One Strategy

Every day we see and hear about retail stores struggling.  On the other hand, we witness large companies growing further and exceeding all expectations.  What do they do differently to grow from a homegrown operation to a mega-corporation?

A recent article shared that success came to two known companies because they are fully customer-oriented.  The two companies are gigantic corporations.  Nevertheless, the idea of putting clients first also works for the individual sales representative, retail operations, and entrepreneurs.
