Matt's guest in this episode is Jeb Blount. Jeb Blount is a long time sales trainer, prospector and the best-selling author of eight books including Sales EQ, Fanatical Prospecting, People Follow You, People Buy You. He is a Sales Acceleration specialist who helps organizations reach peak performance fast by optimizing talent, leveraging training to cultivate high-performance sales culture, developing leadership and coaching skills, and applying more effective organizational design.
When Matt asked how the salesforce looks today he suprised us with his answer, "It looks the same as it did three years ago, five years ago - the things sales people are doing are the same things they did then. But, there are more ways to fill your pipleline and channels - more opportunities than ever before. Older salespeople are benefitting, but can be overwhelmed with the addition of so many places to interupt the day of prospects and connect."
Channels are being clogged, though, because they are so readily available. Matt asked, "How do you break through using these tools?"
Jeb tells us, "It's always been hard to break through, even when we had email and door knocking, before social became core channels. Prior to that - doors, phones and networking events."
Listen to this - the story of Richard from the UK and how he was persistent until he got through. He KNEW Jeb was a buyer, he KNEW. It's a great success story of knowing your target market and not giving up.
