I would venture to say that the single greatest barrier to obtaining new business is the fear of making the cold call. In my experience, even the most experienced and successful sales people can become shy and uncertain when they pick up the phone to make cold calls. But nothing ventured, nothing gained-so read on for hints, tips and tricks for making the most of this lead generation tool.What are some of the greatest advantages of making cold calls to generate leads?o No business can have a future without growth. o Cold calling–unlike any other form of lead generation–can create business opportunities at a lower cost and with greater results. o Cold calling enables you to have more control over the new business you bring in the door.So what is it that keeps most professionals from biting the bullet and picking up the phone,cheap moncler ski jackets?Fear.The excuses for not making cold calls run the gamut: o I had errands to run.o Everything else was a priority. o My dog, my cat, my child, my aunt’s husband’s cousin…Here are some of the pointers I have used to coach professionals on overcoming their fear of the cold calls: o Have a list of objections you think you might hear, and write out responses to address them. Better yet, practice your responses with someone you trust to give you constructive feedback.o Recognize that if someone is rude enough to hang up on you, it is about them and not you. It is NOT the end of the world. o Always remember the word “next”. The key to success in making cold calls or generating leads is numbers. Our telemarketers make between 20 and 50 calls per hour–they recognize that the more outbound calls you make, the greater your successes will be.I always suggest keeping quotes close by that remind you that fear is universal and can be overcome. Here are some of my favorite inspiring quotes.”Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt” –William Shakespeare”When you are afraid, do the thing you are afraid of and soon you will lose your fear of it.”–Norman Vincent Peale”You can conquer almost any fear if you will only make up your mind to do so. For remember, fear doesn’t exist anywhere except in the mind.” –Dale Carnegie”You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I have lived this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along’ You must do the thing you think you cannot do.” –Eleanor RooseveltBefore you set out to generate leads for your business, use the following as a checklist of things to consider:o What are your markets? The insurance industry? Manufacturing industry? How specific can you be? o What is the title of the person who makes the decisions? Is your key contact an editor of a magazine? The head of human resources? o How long is your list? It’s always surprising to me when I meet with new clients who don’t understand why they have not succeeded with a list of 20 new prospects. When it comes to successful lead generation, the name of the game is numbers. The rule of thumb is that for every 40 calls you make, you should have at least a 10 to 20% rate of interest. If after 100 calls there is no interest, there’s a good chance that your product, your market or your list are not on target and should be re-evaluated. o How accurate is your list? Even lists you buy from professional list services have an accuracy rate of 80%at best We live in a very mobile society, so expect a list that is more than 6 months old to be out of date.If you don’t have the answers to these questions, consider postponing your campaign until you do.Now that you’ve determined who you are calling, it’s time to focus on your script. Time for some more questions:o Does your opening sentence capture attention? o Are you clear on what you want the prospect to do next? o Attend an event? o Receive your literature? o See you for an appointment? o Buy a product? o Have you role played the script delivery? I always, always recommend this.So you have your list, you’ve identified your market and you are on a roll. Have you thought through what happens if the person on the other end is interested? You must follow through:o Send literature. Do you have a professional PDF you can forward by e-mail? If not, this is something you may want to have in place before your call campaign. o Set up an appointment. If you are on a limited budget, do you want to limit your appointments to a 30 mile radius? o Sell a service. If you have a service you want to sell by phone, do you have product detail you can forward? Can the product be sold in one call or is it the type of product or service that requires multiple calls?The number of calls you need to make to accomplish your objective depends on the type of cold call campaign you are embarking on:o To sell a product or service, you may need to make as many as eight calls to get to a close. o To invite people to a meeting may require 3-5 calls o To schedule an appointment may take between 1 and 3 calls o As a general rule, strong prospects for your products and services: o Are in the market for your product or service o Are financially able to make the purchase o Express at least mild enthusiasm for your offerNow have a primer on making the cold call. If your outbound lead generation is still not working, here are some possible reasons why not:o Call aversion–you are not making enough calls because you are avoiding them like the plague. o You are simply not making enough calls,moncler jackets for men. Again, this is a numbers game–the more calls you make, the greater the chance for success. o There is a lack of follow up. Follow up is essential. I highly recommend a program like Salesforce.com or ACT to keep detailed records of your contacts and dates for reconnecting. o The product is not a good fit for the market. If you are not sure that there is a fit between your product and the market, ask your prospect. o You don’t have a strong enough script,spyder ski wear. There is an art to effective script writing. I would suggest locating a book that outlines different types of scripts. o The wrong person is making the calls. The attitude of the caller can make or break your chances for success. If you or your team are uncomfortable making the calls, you could be wasting a lot of time and money. In this case, I would suggest locating a professional lead generation firm.

“Work hard on your job, you’ll earn a living. Work hard on yourself and you’ll make a fortune… “Great words spoken by the famous speaker Jim Rohn.In the past 20+ years that I’ve been working,kids spyder ski outerwear sale, my efforts were geared towards wealth creation. Study hard. Get a job. Work hard on your job. These were the very routine I went through day in and day out.It was only after hearing these words by Jim Rohn and after spending 20+ years of working hard that I realized I’ve spent so much time with no significant results.Then I began to make an inventory of things which I had been busy about.You see, most people tend to spend all their energy working hard on their jobs that they tend to take the most important things in life for granted.”You don’t need money to create wealth, but you need wealth to create wealth.People tend to associate wealth with money alone. In reality, wealth encompasses all areas of our lives. To achieve true and lasting wealth, we must first define what wealth really is to us.What do we mean when we say we are wealthy? How do we measure wealth?Let me share with you the 8 areas in my life where I focus my energy. I believe that if we improve on these 8 areas, we will achieve true and lasting wealth.KASH-HEIR: Your guide to true and lasting wealth.K – Knowledge.Everyday is a wonderful day of learning. From the time we were born up to now, we have acquired enough knowledge that we can use to succeed in life. We just need to unleash these and offer these to the world. Focus your efforts in acquiring knowledge that will help you develop your talents more.Personally, I wanted to help people unleash their potential. I believe all of us are meant for greatness.

Then focus your energy towards what you want to become. Acquire as much knowledge as you can.A – Attitude.Always seek to have a positive outlook in life. I must admit, it’s not easy, but it’s possible. One of the things I learned is to always have an attitude of gratitude. Be thankful for all the blessings you have received. Even the simplest things.Before going to bed at night, I list down 3 things that I am thankful for during the day. Try doing this yourself. List down 3 different things daily and really be thankful about it. Make a journal of these things that you are thankful for. Simple things will do. Focus on how you felt. Read it upon waking up in the morning. The key here is focusing on your emotions. This will surely put you in a very positive outlook at the start of your day.S – Skill.Knowledge is something you have acquired. But this knowledge will not be useful if you do not “TAKE ACTION.” Remember, acquiring knowledge is not enough. Focus on taking massive action on the new found knowledge you have learned.Do you know that by the time we reach 16 years,womens spyder ski jackets online, we have acquired enough knowledge that we can take action? Focus your efforts in enhancing your skill.Do not wait for the perfect time because there is no such thing. Taking massive action immediately is the key to enhancing your skills.H – Habits.Successful people develop successful habits that failures don’t. Habits are what separate the good from the great. Habits are the main reason why other people are successful and others are not.Knowledge is something you acquire through reading or studying. Skill is something you acquire through practicing. Habit is practicing the skill every single day. Consistency is the key.The key to developing new habits is doing the skill everyday for 30 days without fail. These habits will then become powerful beliefs that will help you shape your life.H – Health.I often ask people I meet – What is your greatest asset? Some may say their greatest assets are their properties. In reality, our Health is our greatest asset. A healthy body, mind and spirit will propel us to achieve great heights. All these things that we strive for will be of no use to us if we don’t look out for our health. Our health is our greatest wealth,spyder ski wear.E – Experiences.Experience is the best teacher. Nothing will ever replace lessons we have learned from the “school of hard knocks.” Our life experiences, whether good or bad, have molded us to what we are now. It is vital to always look at life as a learning journey. Our experiences mold our mold our character.Always look for the lessons in every experience that you encounter, whether good or bad.I – Integrity.Integrity, as defined in the dictionary, means whole. You are who you are. What you do whether someone is looking or not defines who you are. I repeat, all of us are destined for greatness. You are a child of God. That’s a fact whether you accept it or not. We are all made in the image and likeness of God. We are phenomenal beings with the ability to achieve great things if we only put our minds into it.R – Relationships.What good is wealth if you have no one to share it with? The whole idea of living is about building lasting relationships. We must always treasure our relationships with our family and friends. They are the one who will stick with us through thick and thin.People are likened to a pencil. Like pencils, we need to undergo sharpening to be useful. Like pencils, we have the capability to draw lines – whether straight or crooked lines. Like pencils, we are equipped with an eraser. We can correct our past mistakes and re-draw the lines. Most important of all, like pencils, we need someone to hold on to us so that we can draw lines properly.I believe that if by focusing on these 8 areas, we will achieve true and lasting wealth which includes financial wealth.In the end, it’s not how much money you earn and keep, it’s how many lives you have touched with the blessings that was given to you from above.Remember this, “Self-serving people regard their talents and resources as their own. Serving people regard themselves as “Stewards of God’s Estate.”Be a Steward of God’s Estate today.Shine forth and be a rich blessing to others.Neo C. Rayoshttp://www.wakemeupneo.com
Diamonds are beautiful but knowing their value requires some knowledge. Before buying diamonds or diamond jewellery, it is vital that you understand the 4 “C” of diamonds. This will allow you to make an informed buying decision about the stones set in a diamond ring or earrings, or perhaps a diamond necklace or bracelet. The 4 “C” are: Cut, Clarity, Colour, Carat.In brief,spyder ski wear, diamonds are graded and classified by these 4 “C” characteristics:Cut is the way that the rough diamond has been shaped. The most usual cut is the “modern brilliant” cut which, with 58 facets, maximises the diamond’s sparkle. Fancy cuts which include pear shape, marquise, emerald cut and princess cut, can be attractive but they will not maximise the reflected light so the diamond will not glint as much,spyder ski goggles online.Clarity is a way to describe the size and quantity of foreign material that has been trapped inside the diamond, plus other marks and flaws caused by cracks and dots. Usually very small, so called “inclusions”, small pieces of black carbon, other minerals or rock matrix, detract from the beauty of the diamond but are an indicator of the natural origin of diamonds. External blemishes, on the surface of the stone, are also incorporated into the Clarity score of a diamond. Diamonds are formally graded according to the following scale: FL (Flawless), IF (Internally flawless), VVS1 & VVS2 (Very very slightly imperfect), S1 & VS2 (Very slightly imperfect), SI1 & SI2 (Slightly imperfect), I1, I2 & I3 (Imperfect). Avoid inclusions as far as you can,womens spyder ski outerwear online. Always try to get a stone with the highest possible clarity rating.Colour is extremely important. A pure white or colourless diamond is the best. However diamonds come in many shades of colour and this determines the price. Diamond colour is graded from D to Z with D being colourless (the very best) and Z representing a yellowish colour. If you can afford a D colour stone it’s the one to go for!Carat is often thought of as the size of the diamond but it is actually the weight: 1 carat = 0.2 grammes. So, gemstones may appear to be the same size (diameter) but due to differences in the depth of cut and/or the density of the material, the weights or carat will differ. Do not confuse the carat weight of diamonds, singularly or collective set in diamond jewellery, with the carat used for the purity of gold.We recommend that you seek out a reputable retailer of diamond jewellery. Perhaps ask friends and family for recommendations so that you select a local jewellery shop that you can trust. Then, with the jeweller, discuss the 4 “C” as you consider your purchase of fabulous diamonds. Enjoy.

If you want a great way to regain control of your time and double (even triple) your productivity, then this article will show you a way that works almost every time it’s used.Here’s the story:A few years ago, I had the good fortune to write an ad selling a product showing people how to buy large ($1 million or higher) businesses without using any banks, credit or your own money.There were a LOT of great ideas in this course.But one thing the author said has stuck with me since (paraphrased): “During recessions, stay the hell away from the news.”His reasoning was the news is negative.Their mantra is “if it bleeds, it leads,spyder ski wear.”And when you are in business, you need to FOCUS on yourself and your business more than ever — and not get distracted by all the doom and gloom.In fact,moncler vests for kid, it’s this guy’s contention that, if you simply ignore the news, you will almost automatically be more successful.

Whether you are a business owner, work in telesales or are out and about selling face to face, the basic principles of sales need to be understood and used.There is nothing worse than having the phone ring and someone read through a script to you or walking around an exhibition to have someone on a stand start gibbering straight at you. It is so impersonal.I have jotted down a three tips I see as the basic of sales.1 – Be human, remember people buy from peopleDon’t talk in jargon or in corporate speak,spyder ski wear. It is actually just makes you look like you don’t know what you are talking about. Research has shown, according to Dr Robert Cialdini, that just by asking “how are you?” increases your chances of getting a sale significantly. Show you have a sense of humour and can be flexible. It makes you real and more authentic. People do not like dealing with robotic and rigid processes.2 – Find out what they want firstI know so many people that dive straight in talking about how good the company is, or how qualified they are, and what they have been up to. The thing is, your prospects don’t actually care about you, they care about themselves first. You need to understand that in order to get a prospect onboard with you and to start trusting you, you need to show you understand where they are right now. You need to understand what their pain and frustration is at the moment. You need to understand what the answer to their prayers is, so that you can offer your services in a way that makes them “need” what you have.3 – Give them what they wantOnce you have established what your prospect “needs” you can then look at what you have to offer and repackage it according to what they want. For example say you offer a home study course that included a book, an audio and a video. You might think the video was the main selling point of the home study pack so you make that the focal point of your sales pitch. Your customer might however have mentioned they spend a lot of time in car and enjoy listening to audios. You should rearrange your offer to take this information into account. Give you customers what they actually need, not what you think they should want.Sales doesn’t have to be more complicated than that,womens spyder ski jacket. Yes there are a lot more tips and techniques you can use to improve your performance, but everything will feed back to these basic core principles of sales.
