Attract the Right Job Or Clientele:

Communications Influence and Sell On Our Behalf

Many become so focused on their goals to advance that they do not realize communications influence and sell on our behalf. Additionally, communications vary in ways that most do not consider. It is necessary to be aware of our body language, facial expressions, and tone of voice.

Although the above may sound strange, it is worthy of consideration for advancement, especially if meeting goals are not in one’s future. All communication elements influence and sell on our behalf. Whether you lead a large corporation, are a manager for a team of people, or attempting to sell an idea to your team(s), a company, or an individual, it is essential to be aware of all the elements.

My Story

Most people are cautious regarding initial conversations, no matter the purpose. From our perspective, it can be for a job interview, meeting a team, or approaching a company for the first time. More than anything, the other party wants to know we aren’t out to only ‘sell them’ but will strive to understand them first. The best indicator is detecting a smile as one communicates regardless of the style.

What are our commonality traits that invite ongoing conversations? An excellent way to begin is by recalling conversations with a favorite friend. Often it is story-sharing that encourages more open communications. Likewise, when employers and management share stories to provide examples for their teams, the staff is likelier to perform well. Similarly, answering job interview questions work best via short stories to the other party’s interest. The same is true for most situations.

The worst communication trait is to make judgments before we hear all the facts. Opposing thought can bring additional insights to our’ usual mode of operation.’ By broadening our perspective, we can communicate better with a broader audience. A more open mindset can give way to a more diverse and inclusive audience. Today, it is necessary for businesses to welcome diversity, equity, and inclusion to do well.

Upfront, our tone of voice comes across whether we speak or write. People accustomed to business efforts can detect the mindset of the other party. Egotistical messaging usually experiences a delete, whether online or in-person. Worse, the possibility of future appointments declines. 

There are numerous steps to ensure the messaging is well-received upfront. Our smiles can be seen, heard, and felt in any communication style. Compounding the smile effect is our level of enthusiasm. Many people on a job sadly lack the art of being enthusiastic. Before a meeting begins, it only takes a few minutes to increase one’s energy level. For example, a short exercise of any type will increase the energy flow and contribute to a positive mindset.

Speak to the Interests of Others Upfront

For formal meetings, effective salespeople will take the time to research the company or person ahead of time. The top producers will study the differences between each company and their top three competitors to realize the differentiation in service. The research typically turns into conversation starters. The better conversation starter is to speak to the other person’s interests; however, the following elements are necessary components:

  • Our smile as we put the other person first and center of the conversation
  • Listening to the details striving to understand
  • Asking appropriate questions for clarification
  • Inquiring about related ideas without indicating ‘here is what I’m trying to sell you.’
  • Asking for insights to advance the conversational sale

The last bullet point is the one question that will lead the influencer or seller to the right path for finding an agreement.

Your Story: Communications Influence and Sell On Our Behalf

First and foremost, unless you are in company of those who listen and respect one another, little else matters. Using your favorite online platform(s) can give way to enabling your goals. One caution is that many frequently self-diminish their experience and possibilities in the making. It’s best to think positively and know that the challenge plus the benefits will outweigh the need to continue learning.


Without bragging, keep your audience informed of where you are today. At the same time, share your insights about what works well for you and how others may benefit. Salespeople may find the suggestion counter intuitive as competition generally reigns. However, the exponential factor driven by service and collaborative efforts puts one in the spotlight and significantly expands upon the audience size.

Sharing who you are, what you do, and how you do it can open previously closed doors. As your audience appreciation grows in numbers, so will business. The qualifier is that every aspect of business complements the others for consistency and to build brand awareness further.

The power of branding can be exponential when we strive to have communications influence and sell on our behalf. The one strategy that performs better than sharing your story is that of grateful clients doing it for you. By doing and giving your best, the same is returned to you by many.

In Conclusion:

People are attracted to the communications of positive thinking people striving to be of service. Business growth and the bottom line depend upon everyone’s style of communication. As an entrepreneur or an employer, the better training will include the concept that communications influence and sell on our behalf.
