The biggest mistakes I have seen salespeople make...

by Rhett Wallace

The biggest mistake I have seen salespeople make is not being prepared for a call.

I have seen people neglect to:

1. Define the goal of their customer meeting

2. Research the customer and their organization

3. Make an attempt to connect the value proposition of their product or service to the client's needs

4. Prepare responses to probably objections

5. Define an overall strategy for their sales call

A sales call will be over quickly if you are not prepared.
