Have you gotten stocked before trying to sell anything in your life or business?
I know a lot of people have had this experience before even you.
Now, I want you to listen to me here.
Coming from the bank you’ll agree that it is one of our major indices for performance. So, I would say, that hasn’t been a problem for me and this is because the bank had done their job well enough to make my delivery a smooth one. All, I just needed as an employee was understanding the why’s of the product and boom I’m on a smooth ride.
But as an entrepreneur, a self-employed person, you tend to face the hardest times because the whole thinking and actualization lie just in front of your desk.
I remember coming out with my first product which was the lighting business.
As smooth as I imagined it would be when I left the bank for it, jeez! It was one of the hardest sales job ever for me.
I moved from one office to another. From a market to another. Homes, Schools, Nightclubs… Just name it.
That experience has always reassured me that I can never develop hypertension in my life again. Lol
You can’t believe I would run through a whole month without a single sale?
I got poorer by the seconds.
Let me just drive you straight to a point you need to know now.
The Televisions, Radios, Newspaper and other media platforms will never tell you that the economy is ripe for you to go and improve your finances.
Your competitors will never announce it that the boom is here so you should now go all out and take part in the harvest.
Sadly, on a day to day basis you’ll be making more expenses because you must make them.
What then should you do?
My candid advice is simply to horn your selling skills either online and/or offline. That’s the only way your Financial Power will improve or become better.
It’s not by the GDP of the Government as announced. Neither is it by the fact that our FDI has improved.
So, first, you must adhere to these simple pieces of advice I want to give you here.
- Quit waiting on the “BREAKING NEWS” that the Economy has improved.
- Commit to improving yourself through increasing your sales skills.
- Make a daily commitment to sales training and sales effectiveness.
- Quit waiting for opportunities. Instead, create opportunities for consumers to buy your products.
Remember that your survival in any given state of the economy depends largely on your Financial Power and you can only survive if you have the needed selling skills as an especially as an entrepreneur.
Unfortunately, there is a reality in our country today. And that’s the fact that most businesses do not know how to sell their products, make sense of real value, or justify why it’s a great time to buy from them.
Companies and even industries have become dependent on seasons, holidays, free gifts, huge contracts and external stimulus to make sales huge enough to increase their financial powers.
This is simply because they’re not learning with the trend or better put, they provide insufficient sales training for their teams, there is a lack of sales motivation, sales discipline, as well as sales persistence. This in turn negatively impacts their financial power.
Unfortunately too, it applies to even the micro, small, and medium scale businesses from tailoring, restaurants, beads making, automobiles to real estate businesses and also consumer goods. In fact, anything business that you can imagine.
If you wait for the economy to improve or jobs to come back or some sort of magical money to drop from the skies you are in for a very painful number of years to come.
The most valuable individuals and companies in this economy are those that are able to create and drive revenues.
The only way to do that is to learn the skills of selling.
No one is a born salesperson.
Selling is a learned skill like anything else.
Your personal financial power or economy will not improve until you are sales motivated, sales trained and loaded with sales training solutions on a daily basis. Increase your sales effectiveness and improve your financial power today.
