Chat Recap: Love More, Sell More with Jack Vincent

Jan 29, 2015 | Chats

PrintOn the fourth Wednesday in January, we joined forces with special guest Jack Vincent, sales coach and author of A Sale Is a Love Affair

Participants weighed in with opinions and insight on the following topics of interest:

  1. Jack says self-love is the first step in sales, before you can build trusting relationships. Why is this and what can we do to boost our self-love?
  2. Jack writes that trust is achieved not just by addressing rational thoughts, but also emotions and feelings. How does this work?
  3. Pros often ask how many times we should follow-up on a proposal– what do you suggest? What do you mean by “asking for the no?”
  4. What advice do you give to consultants who regularly “hook up” with the wrong partners and clients?
  5. We often struggle with how much info to put in a proposal (vs. a plan produced after we’re hired). In the book, you state “Simplicity sells. Simplicity triggers emotions.” How does this work?
  6. It’s easy for consultants to feel like we need to take on every prospective client that comes along. What are the dangers of accepting toxic clients, and how can we spot them?
  7. What do you say to those who don’t pursue certain clients who are “out of their league?”

A few of the top tweets are highlighted below (followed by a link to the full transcript):
