So people, let me know if this has ever happened to you! Didja ever have a super duper embarrassing moment while you’re trying to sell to the VP of Everything and the Mucky-Muck of Important Stuff?
What did you do about it?
Done well, those moments can help you make a meaningful connection that actually leads to sales! Here’s how you do it.
First, It helps to realize that those super scary executives – who can crush your hopes and dreams – put on jammy-jams at night, they get the flu, and they’ve got a kid who licks other kids, too! (Yep! That’s a thing!)
Then, you call it out and (when possible) go straight to the humor of the situation. It brings you to the human level – which gives you a way to relate to them.
Watch Epsiode 43 of The SellOut Show and find out how Shawn turned a handbag full of water into a signed contract and Dianna turned an accident involving three Labradors into an executive who always returns her calls.
Then, tell us YOUR most embarrassing sales moments and what you did about them! We can’t wait to hear.
Love ’em UP!
