Selling The Intangibles
Selling the intangibles should be
priority #1 for you.
It's been one week since we elected a new president.
It doesn't matter if you are a Democrat or a Republican,
change is coming to town.
So what are we in for?
Take a look at these headlines from the Wall Street Journal
last week. That's right these headlines were all in last
"Bank Clampdown Dogs Economy"
"Lending Standards Keep Tightening, Increasing the Risk
of a Prolonged Recession"
"Car Makers Woes Put U.S. In A Bind"
"Economic Worries That Produce a Rout"
"A 486 - Drop Follows Election Day Rally"
"Auto Sales Plunged In October"
As I pen this newsletter the Dow Jones is up 150 points.
That's good! However, in a couple of hours it could be
down 400 points.
Selling during good times is never easy.
Selling during tough times can be difficult at best.
Okay, so you're a professional sales person, what are
For one thing you can stop selling on price.
If you want to start selling more, start selling the
Don't jump in the cesspool of doom and gloom - leave that
for your competition.
When buyers are nervous and stressed out, their default
reaction is to talk about price. It shouldn't be your
reaction - ever.
Remember the intangibles don't have price tags.
The intangibles are what make your company unique.
The intangibles are what make your products/services
The intangibles are also what Make you unique.

It's the goodwill you and your company offer your sales
prospects and customers.
Become a champion of employee morale within your company.
Leverage your know-how and seek to build relationships.
Collaboration is priceless in seller and buyer relationships.
For example you can offer to help write the specifications
for an upcoming RFQ.
Be gracious in all selling situations.
Always be smiling. It's been said that being happy doesn't
make people smile, but smiling makes people happy.
Always have an attitude of gratitude and thank everyone
who helps you in anyway.
When people are down you can build them up with your
positive expectations about working with you and your
company. I suspect that people who work in negative
environments are attracted to people who possess positive
attitudes and positive expectations.
Always be positive and always expect the best outcomes.
Imagine how a new sales prospect might react if you said
something like, "You don't realize this, but I'm about
to exceed your expectations."
Don't read the headlines - be the headline!
Be the fountain of new ideas.
Be the torch that sheds light on new ways to solve old
problems for your sales prospects and customers.
Forget about playing by the rules - change the rules!
Stop talking about price and start selling the intangibles
that you, your company, and your products offer.
The sun is always shining above the dark skies and storms
Expect every sales call to be better than your last one.
Expect to exceed every sales quota you are given.
And if you expect to be prosperous you will live a life
of abundance, especially if you stay focused on selling
