SALES SURGE: Double Your Sales in 30 Days with Newsell
A keynote presentation to inspire sales meetings to get back to basics with a powerful technique to produce an immediate surge in sales activity that will help generate quick and sudden growth their business.
NEWSELL: A Billion Customers Can't Be Wrong
Newsell is now the fastest growing sales strategy in the world! Everyone is talking about it. More and more businesses, every day, are escaping from oldsell and moving over to newsell. Millions of sales people and their managers are now using newsell in the marketplace. Why? Because customers like newsell and they don’t like oldsell and a billion customers can’t be wrong!
WORD OF MOUTH: How to Duplicate Your Satisfied Customers
Your customers influence at least ten other people. In any target audience the 10% lead the 90%. There is usually a small group of heavy-hitters who call the shots. They may be a handful of trade journalists, a few market-leaders, some early-innovators, an industry spokesperson, a recognised guru or a high profile customer.
When these people talk the rest of the target audience listens! Every marketing plan should give deliberate thought to how to duplicate your satisfied customers.
WHAT RECESSION?: Use Newsell To Boost Sales This Quarter
Over the years hundreds of studies have been conducted to prove companies should increase sales activity during a recession. Don't cut your sales activities, increase them. Let your competition cut theirs. When you increase your activity, you reassure your customers and buyers can feel they are minimizing risk by doing business with you.
Keep your friends. You know who your loyal customers are. Keep in touch with them and let them know what you have to offer. Maintain continuity to sustain awareness. Selling works cumulatively so you have to remind people frequently about your brand or they'll forget you. This is a time to stress quality and value and do it more often than ever before.
