4 Simple Steps for Successful Selling

Katie Scheer | Apr 16, 2019 9:28:00 AM

Zig Ziglar Selling Quote

Selling doesn't come naturally to most, and it can feel intimidating and scary. The reality is that most everyone that works needs to know how to sell because in some capacity, in some way, they either directly or indirectly influence the company's sales volume.

These things, coupled with "practicing by doing," will greatly diminish these hesitations. One thing to note: if someone in sales does not have at least a slight amount of nervousness, he/she has lost the edge and passion behind gaining a sale, so don't allow yourself to get complacent.

Giving Thanks Isn't Just "Thank You"

Katie Scheer | Nov 20, 2018 9:07:00 AM

Thanksgiving 2018It's an obvious and fitting time of year to discuss "giving thanks." It's certainly a time of reflection as we pause and think of all that we are thankful for, both personally and professionally. In business, the #1 thing we should be thankful for is our customers. It should come as no surprise to you that we are thankful for them, but do they feel appreciated? A simple "thank you" to them has become such a habit and ordinary part of our scripts and emails, so do you really think they pause when they hear or read those words and think, "Wow, they really appreciate me and the business I am giving them"? 9.5 times out of 10, the answer is no.
