Recently I was encouraged to read Jeffrey Gitomer’s “Little Red Book of Selling” by a friend who was doing business to business sales at 100% commission
While much of this book is more directed towards someone who closes major deals, etc. I learned a lot from it and wanted to share it with you guys.
It changed everything for me because it made me think about business from a perspective that was different from my own.
A few tips I picked up:
#1 changed my voicemail from the boring “Sorry I’m not here. Leave a message…blah-blah-blah” to something more exciting. If you have my number check it out!
#2 decided to join a local Toastmaster’s group. I was voted in to my local club Wednesday and look forward to the enhanced speaking skills I will develop.
#3 have looked into what types of free informational speeches I can give at my chamber of commerce. I’ve been a member for a few months now.
#4 continued to ask people for their business.
#5 worked on my business cards.
#6 learned to go above the “fundraising” person straight to the board members with fundraiser proposals.
#7 made contact to join a local charity event’s board of directors
While this list is short it is super important! Anyone who cares about their business or sales performance needs to check out this book because it has very helpful information that could very well change your financial future.
Also be sure to pick up the author’s other books- they’re fabulous!
