Are You Making These 5 Stupid Sales Mistakes?

1. Selling too hard

2. Not asking for the sale

(+ 3 more...)

Join Veronika (Ronnie) Noize, the Marketing Coach, for an exciting preview of the outstanding Soft Selling Sales Training program on Tuesday, April 9 from 6:30-8:30 pm in Vancouver WA.

In this high-energy, participative and informative training session, you will discover:
==> The 5 stupidest sales mistakes that even smart people make (and what to do about them)

==> The one SENTENCE that massively increases your sales success
==> How to sell without pressure, pushiness, or manipulation

Just read these results from a recent sales training: 

"Last week I made my biggest sale ever (three times my previous biggest sale) thanks to Soft Selling sales training! Just this one sale paid for the Soft Selling class more than three times. The gentle, firm and friendly tactics I learned helped me ask the questions that led to the bigger sale. And I've learned to be quiet and really listen to the answers. My prospect closed herself, with no stalls or objections. She was excited to be working together and happy she's made a huge commitment to her health. I'm excited too!" ~ Emily Clark, The Supple Rider

"Results, this year I have had a 24% increase in business overall and currently am at a 60% increase in revenue over last year. Specifically, what Soft Selling has done for me financially is obvious."
~ Angela Dockum, Waddell & Reed

"As a direct result of this class, I have increased my revenue by over 200%. I have also negotiated retainer agreements with clients who were previously on a project-only basis. Finally, I have acquired skills that will allow me to continue this business growth as I move forward...I highly recommend Soft Selling." ~ Kristin Taylor, Kristin Taylor Marketing

What is Soft Selling?
Jim Lorentzen's Soft Selling is truly a better way to sell: with integrity, intention, and inspiration! Soft Selling is a consultative approach to sales that focuses on mutual respect, integrity, and finding the right fit instead of old fashioned high pressure pushy sales techniques that focus on making the sale at any cost (even when it is against the best interests of the prospect).

This class is presented as a public service by DIY Marketing Center and hosted by Ronnie Noize, the Marketing Coach.

Good gracious, I'd read quite a few marketing books and took notes, but then all I had was a computer file with a lot of notes. Now, after your one-hour class--and the Friday deadline--I actually wrote it down and even went through some of those notes while I did it. Wow. I can't believe I did it! Thanks so much, Ronnie.
