There’s Only One Real Secret to Sales Success

New salespeople are a lot like kids at Christmas, looking for the “perfect present.” Just as kids think the perfect gift will make their holiday perfect, salespeople often think there’s one or sometimes two or three secret sales tricks that once they learn that will make sales “easy” for them. If they can just learn “the trade secrets,” or how to close a sale, or how to do this or that, then somehow things will magically get easy. Well, I hate to burst your bubble, but there is no “secret” to success unless that secret is, “work at it.” Sure, techniques and insight and people skills can make a tough job easier, but even the pros have to work at it. We’re all always perfecting our game, learning new techniques, and honing our talk, our listening skills and getting to know our customers and their problems better. As much as I’d love to promise you a rose garden, I can’t. I can teach you how to plant, tend, feed, weed and develop your skills and techniques, but ultimately the only proven path to sales success is practice.

“Nobody’s a natural. You work hard to get good and then work hard to get better. It’s hard to stay on top.” ~ Paul Coffey
