So, your last sales meeting didn’t go so well. You came across a sales objection you found difficult to handle. Or you’re struggling to identify which sales technique that’ll help you close that pesky deal that’s been dragging on for months.
Sometimes, you need to take some time out of your day to decompress and look at some sales memes. Because, sometimes it helps to laugh - especially at ourselves.
No better feeling than watching a lead move along the pipeline. Even better when all that customer data is in one location so you can keep an eye on it via your CRM.
Sales is very much a waiting game. Even the most seemingly keen prospects can unexpectedly become ghosts.
A 40 hour work week? You mean part-time?
You start the day with such good intentions, then suddenly it’s 5 pm and your to-do-list is still the length of your arm.
You know you definitely shouldn’t put up with it but that commission is way too tempting to say anything.
Killer clowns? Zombies? That’s nothing compared to a sudden unexpected call from a prospect - that’s not your life on the line, it's your commission!
Customers are always looking for the best deal, it’s understandable! But even when you’ve exhausted every discount available there are some that are still looking for ways to save a few pennies.
Sales isn’t for the faint of heart, it’s a whirlwind sometimes. You can go from top of the world to miserable in the time it takes to make a phone call!
Doesn’t matter how good your pitch is, or how many pain points and objections you overcome, some prospects just don’t know what they’re missing.
We’ll get over it eventually, just let us sulk for a little bit first.
A week of cold calling and dealing with sales objections can take its toll after a while. Remember to take a break sometimes!
You know you need to close that deal before starting something new. But that high-value prospect is looking very promising, you’d be a fool not to take a quick look.
Most of your clients would be shocked to see what they’re really like behind closed doors. Guess that’s why it’s hard for them to believe that we really can’t do better than our last quote!
Sales managers are only human, but that doesn’t make a lost opportunity hurt any less.
It’s not your fault we’re in a difficult economy!
Setbacks make success even sweeterIt might’ve taken weeks, even months to get there, but there’s nothing better than closing a deal with a reluctant prospect.
When it comes to cold calls, you never know what you’re gonna get. Even pros get nervous when reaching out to a cold lead, so be ready for anything, especially rejection.
It might seem simple but those calls can last all day.
Speaking of rejection, sales roles and setbacks go hand in hand. But that doesn’t make that third ‘no’ of the day hurt any less - or the fourth or fifth.
It’s hard to be brief when you stand by the product you’re selling. But prospects don’t want to be bored, so avoid unnecessary details that they don’t need.
Thinking of innovative interview questions can be tough, but the hit film Wolf of Wall Street has a lot to answer for! Sales managers, you might want to skip this question next time.
Is there such a thing as too direct? In sales, there’s no time to waste, especially when there’s commission on the line.
Sales is a competitive game. So after weeks of meetings and outreach, there’s no way you’re letting someone else take your sale!
Not every month is your month. But try telling that to your sales manager!
Badly written CRM notes are some of the biggest pet peeves for sales managers. So if you want to stay on their good side make sure your entries are detailed and concise.
Cold calls are challenging at the best of times and making them over and over again can drive even the most resilient crazy.
So you have to learn to roll with the punches and make the best of things.
If you don’t keep on getting back up you’ll never make it!
All those setbacks eventually lead to that one perfect prospect. And once you find them, you’ll wanna use every sales trick in the book to keep them happy and close the deal.
Even when they’re keen, closing the deal can be a challenge - and a frustrating one!
If we could get some contact details with it too, that would be great!
Sales and marketing alignment is important, without it, you’re just blindly working against each other.
Everyone else in the team tries to give them a wide berth, but their numbers speak for themselves so who are you to judge?
Inside sales can be a great tool, but haven’t we all had enough of ‘remote meetings’?
You sometimes wonder if you’re more coffee than a sales rep. Or if salespeople are single-handedly funding the coffee industry.
Salespeople’s small talk is unmatched, we’ll talk about anything and everything to try and form a connection.
Doesn’t matter how many times you tell them, a prospect will always claim they know best.
Some call it annoying, we call it persistent!
It doesn’t happen often, but it's a great way to get started on closing the deal!
Every now and then the stars align! So make the most of it and don’t let the opportunity pass you by.
Every sale process comes with a few setbacks, but that doesn’t mean you can’t right the ship!
Nothing will stop us from showing the world that we closed our sale!
This one hurts….
A good sales pitch will have you on cloud nine!
Even worse when you’re nowhere near your target.
