Recently I’ve been working with my buddy David Anderson, from Nitroworks Marketing, to put together a couple new blueprints on selling for our Location Rebel members.
Sooo many people have a huge fear of sales. And if you don’t think you have to worry about this if you’re building a freelance business, think again!
Freelance writing, design, SEO, you name it is all based around selling.
No matter how you approach getting new clients, if you can’t sell yourself, you’re going to miss out on business. That’s especially true when it comes to hopping on the phone or Skype.
If you think you’ll never have to get on the phone with a client because you’re freelancing, think again!
Thankfully, when it comes to talking to people on the phone, this guy is the man. Not that long ago he was exactly where you are now, afraid of selling and hated picking up the phone. A few years later, he’s a total pro and has been teaching people all over the country how to improve their sales techniques.
This past week we were skiing together in Vail, Colorado – and rather than just showing nothing but gratuitous shots of us busting backflips in the terrain park, and plowing through acres of fresh powder – I figured I’d try and shoot something that might actually be useful to you.
So in this week’s vlog, along with a few shots of us on the slopes – David, our friend Madi, and I, each share our best tip for getting over your fear of selling – as well as tell the story of how each of us conquered our own fears in the process.
For those of you who don’t want to watch the whole thing?
Here’s the Cliff Notes version:
- Put yourself in a scenario where you have to sell.
- Remember that everyone you’re talking to us a totally normal person, just like you.
- Use the Pamphlet Principle to warm up your leads.
