This week I’m shaking things up a bit and bringing you a video interview with my friend Maria Bayer who’s a sales coach for creative entrepreneurs. I don’t know about you, but selling is something that does not come naturally to me. Learning how to sell in a way that feels authentic and comfortable to me has been a skill set that I’ve had to learn (and am still learning).
In this video, we’re talking about:
1:20 – What is selling?
3:06 – How to overcome the fear of selling
6:00 – How not to take “no” so personally…
7:15 – Why selling is just like dating…
12:15 – Working backwards to win over your dream clients.
17:40 – Tips on how to close a sale
24:37 – Getting people to understand your value
Also, we’d love to hear from you. Is selling something that comes easily to you? If not, what are some ways you’ve worked through becoming better at sales? If you’re a sales superstar, what are some of your best sales tips? Leave a comment below!
