Just a quick not to anyone still reading this blog. I am in love with Teambox. It is the best software for online collaboration ever. Why?
1. The activity stream makes is super easy to stay on top of teams and projects.
2. The task management is easier than anything I have ever used.
3. @Notifications make it fast and easy to include people in conversations.
4. CONVERT TO TASK! I can take any conversation and make it actionable.
5. Pages are the easiest way to share content EVER!
6. Google docs integration.
The list keeps going, but hey you get the picture. If not here is a cool one:
And this is me telling Scoble about it!
Do you know? If not, chances are it is either because you did not ask, or you did not really investigate when you did. Instead you focused on what is important to you.
This is folly! Avoid these thoughts at all costs. The sales process, and your prospect, could care less what is important to you until you have shown that you understand what is important to them. You will struggle to be seen as a trusted advisor in any realm if you have not first established that you are able to understand the problems your prospects and clients face. It does not matter how much you know. It matters how much people think you know. (more…)
Focusing on helping sale people was what got me into blogging in the first place. This was a transcendental moment as it helped further my career and understanding of Sales 2.0 technology and practice. Being a Web 2.0 aficionado, it was only fitting that I took to the many new concept and tools that made for best practices in modern day selling. (more…)
We have a new guest blogger in the ranks and while our worlds are different, her words ring true throughout the sales world.
One of the aims in sales, lately, is to help buyers buy. Unfortunately, we in sales continue to focus on selling a solution. And when we say we want to ‘help buyers buy’ that means we want to make it easier for them to make a purchasing decision and choose our solution.
But sales treats a need as if it were an isolated event. We haven’t been trained to realize that ‘needs’ arise in our buyer’s environments as part of a tangle of other issues that are going on. So a team building program is necessitated by a merger, by team members from disparate cultures joining together, by folks being laid off, by people being resentful they have been given new jobs, etc. Until buyers either resolve or garner buy-in from, the internal issues that necessitated the ‘need’ and hold it in place daily, they cannot bring in a solution without disrupting the other elements. And the time it takes them to do that is the length of the sales cycle.
The Ultimate Appointment Making Workshop rides again. If you follow the blog you know I rarely promote other people’s events. Even the Sales Bloggers Union rarely gets a plug on my site, since most of what they focus on is not for the Sales Evangelist. That said, here is one serious exception.
Tibor, from Renbor Sales is one of my mates in the Union. He is brilliant, as are the rest of my colleagues, and here is an event anyone in the Toronto area who wants to improve their selling prowess should attend.
