He helps business owners understand how they can leverage digital strategies to scale up their operations.  Building connections Businesses can find a third party who can do their massive lead generation for them. At that point, connecting isn’t about building relationships. Connecting then becomes a numbers game.  This means that y

    LinkedIn: Best Practices for Finding Hot B2B Prospects on LinkedIn| Doug C Brown - 1434

    Join us in today’s episode as Doug C. Brown and Donald Kelly talk about the best practices for finding hot B2B prospects on LinkedIn. What are salespeople doing wrong on LinkedIn? Doug Brown often sees a lot of people on LinkedIn who are making prospecting a complex process.  The other mistake is that they’re not clear on their target audience.  Sometimes, it’s not the sales reps fault because they’re trained to prospect in a certain way. On LinkedIn, however, one has to think differently. Instead of targeting many people at once, it’s better to start narrowing at the top of the funnel and getting more focused going down.  Narrowing down prospects means that you’re able to pick 25-30 ideal target customers from your list of 100 people to prospect.  Think of the ultra-high quality prospects that you would love to do business with because the challenge on LinkedIn and other prospecting methods is the follow-up.  The power of follow-up is huge and impactful and this process has to start from the first conversat

    Join Donald Kelly and Jon James in this episode as they talk about how to use the ‘Ask me Anything’ strategy to land more LinkedIn appointments.  Jon James is the CEO of Ignited Results, a digital agency specializing in leveraging LinkedIn to get more sales opportunities. They work with their clients and help them with their LinkedIn marketing to get more meetings with prospects.  The challenges on LinkedIn Part of the challenge is the failure of not identifying who they’re connecting to, which is the driver in terms of who you end up on a call with or having the opportunity to ask someone for a call.  Salespeople need to start with good targeting.  Jon James recommends having a Sales Navigator to target the types of people who can be your ideal prospects. With Sales Navigator, you can target teams or companies with a certain employee count of revenue mark.  The LinkedIn outreach process Before you begin the outreach, you first need to look at your profile and make sure that it’s good to go.

    LinkedIn is a platform that opens many opportunities. In this episode, Daniel Disney joins Donald Kelly as they talk about how you can use social selling to turn LinkedIn into a lead, sales, and revenue-generating machine.  Daniel Disney released his second book called, The Ultimate LinkedIn Sales Guide: How to Use Digital and Social Selling to Turn LinkedIn into a Lead, Sales, and Revenue Generating Machine.  The book is a comprehensive guide on LinkedIn for salespeople, sales teams, and businesses that want to get the most out of LinkedIn.  Generating leads on LinkedIn Everyone can play the social selling game on LinkedIn. You can create viral content, grow your audience, grow your brand, and you can end up with a ton of leads.  The downside is that not all of these leads are good leads, they’re not your target customers, and they’re not likely going to convert.  Common mistakes salespeople make on LinkedIn #1: Keeping a weak profile. At least 80% of teams that Daniel has trained with have profiles th

    LinkedIn is a powerful platform and you can use its features to your advantage. In this episode, Ollie Whitfield talks about how to use LinkedIn voice messages and videos to schedule more appointments.  Using LinkedIn voice message for effective appointments The LinkedIn voice message is something new and not many people have seen it before. That’s why many are prompted to open it and listen to it.  LinkedIn voice messages show that you’re giving effort; it’s a slightly elevated way of showing your desire to build a connection with others.  Showing your face or letting other people hear your voice improves your outreach. A mere text cannot convey your body language or your tone.  A video message allows the prospects to see your mannerisms and that helps in building trust between people and implores them to do business with you.  Improving your video messages or voice messages on LinkedIn Think of it as a very targeted approach. You can’t send video messages or voice messages to everyone. Pick the right peo

    Once You've Connected With a Prospect, Here's What You Should Do Next | Ahmad Munawar - 1430

    07/04/2021 Duración: 23min

    LinkedIn is a huge platform that’s great for prospecting. The question is, once you’ve connected with a prospect, what should you do next? Join Donald Kelly and Ahmad Munawar as they talk about what you should do next once you’ve connected with the prospects.  What to do next after connecting? Keep pitching until they say yes.  Even if the prospects don’t say yes, send them a contract or a payment link.  The challenge in LinkedIn or in any other platform is to game the system. This means wanting to get everything from the platform by doing the least amount of work possible. This method, however, rarely results in any positive outcome.  This is true for email outreach, for LinkedIn, and for advertising.  Many salespeople and entrepreneurs see LinkedIn as an automated lead generation tool but this isn’t how LinkedIn works.  What works in any business and in sales is relationship building. It’s not even about getting the prospects to like you, rather, it’s about getting the prospects to trust you.  Building Re

    LinkedIn: Being a Human on LinkedIn | Ellis Stone - 1429

    How does being human on LinkedIn help you improve your sales game and increase revenue? In today’s episode, Ellis Stone joins Donald Kelly for a great conversation about being human on LinkedIn and what it means.  LinkedIn is such a powerful platform for professionals, but everyone in the space is using it effectively.  One of the issues that many are facing is that they’re not human enough on LinkedIn.  Making human connections on LinkedIn People on LinkedIn aren’t being authentic and instead of being themselves, they try to emulate others.  Sales reps are too used to utilizing scripts and sending them out to hundreds of prospects. We don’t have much success with scripts because buyers know that it’s not coming from you. The truth is, people buy from people.  It’s difficult for companies to scale and track custom messages for every prospect. That is why companies opt for scripts or automated messages.  There is nothing wrong with using scripts, especially if you’re new to the sales game, but if you’re alr

    LinkedIn is a platform that allows professionals to network and connect with others in their industry. In this episode, Donal Kelly talks about the three LinkedIn strategies that provide results.  The issue here is that there are too many people on LinkedIn, and when we find people, we start pitching right away without adding value to them.  Ensure that you are engaging and not just going to the platform pitching and pitching.  Three LinkedIn strategies you need   Make sure that you are sharing content. , Create videos that you can share., Utilize the LinkedIn polls.,   Share your ideas/contents You know a lot of information about your industry that you need to share with other people.  The goal is to become a thought leader and an expert in your own space.  Tribal Impact saw that 55% of decision-makers use LinkedIn content to evaluate potential partners.  Important people are looking at your content and the value that you add to every post you share.

    Sales objections happen all the time but with the health crisis today, it’s a standing question of how the pandemic may impact your customer’s sales objections or how it has already impacted them. Join Donald Kelly and Chris Mele as they talk about the pandemic, customers, and sales objections.  Being in a software company means that the people you’re working with are former executives from other software companies as well.  It’s a very complex environment and so people are critical of the academic principles and the things they adopt because there are real things that work for a software company and there are those that don’t.  For Chris Mele’s experience, how they price, package, and license their technology has a direct connection to the sales force.  The impact of the pandemic on sales objections One of the biggest changes is the aversion to risks and this comes in many different forms. Buyers today are more risk-averse, especially when it comes to new relationships.  Salespeople and companies start se

    As part of the sales process, you can expect objections from everyone you’re speaking with, including your prospects. Join us in this episode as Donald Kelly and Matthew Pollard answer the question, how can you prepare for your prospect’s most likely objections? Matthew Pollard’s first book was entitled, The Introvert’s Edge: How the Quiet and Shy Can Outsell Anyone. It focused on selling as an introvert.  His most recent book is entitled, The Introvert’s Edge to Networking: Work the Room. Leverage Social Media. Develop Powerful Connections is a sequel to the previous book, and it’s focused on how introverts can out-network their extrovert counterparts. Many believe that extroverts have an advantage over introverts, but Matthew believes that this thought is just in peoples’ heads. The truth is, there’s no disadvantage. It’s just that the path to success for introverts and extroverts is different.  What is networking?  Networking is about fostering long-term relationships with champions and momentum partn

    Women are doing great things in the sales industry. In this episode, Donald Kelly is joined by an amazing woman, Nadia Rashid. Listen as Nadia shares how to overcome the most common objections in B2B sales.  Nadia Rashid is the SVP of Sales for Seismic on the East Coast. She manages all the teams from the commercial mid-market all the way through enterprise and global.  Defining Objections For Nadia, objections are obstacles. These are the concerns that prospective buyers convey. Objections are buyers’ concerns that salespeople need to overcome.  The objection is almost needed in sales because it allows the buyers to do a clear assessment of what’s in the market.  It’s also a good indicator between a good salesperson and a great salesperson. How you react to objection when it’s thrown at you shows how much experience you have.  Overcoming objections Nadia teaches sales reps to ask difficult questions in every call - are there any concerns? Is there any reason we shouldn’t move forward to the next step? The

    How do you get past objections? To make it more specific, what can you do if you can’t address your prospect’s objections during a call? Natasha Davis joins Donald Kelly in this next episode on objections.  Natasha Davis is a brand strategist, and she recently released her second book entitled, Unleash Your Millionaire Mindset and Build Your Brand. The book talks about the business from top to bottom and all the in-betweens. It’s about the things we’re afraid of and the things we don’t usually talk about.  As a brand strategist, it’s her brand to look at a company from the top to the bottom and all the in-betweens.  Natasha wasn’t always the entrepreneur. She started her working career as a nurse doing emergency and trauma, and she loved her job. She got bit by the entrepreneurship bug, and when she realized she couldn’t shake it off, she dipped her toes in it.  After a while, she realized that she likes being an entrepreneur, so she made the shift and went from being a nurse into what she is now.  Sometime

    The idea of objections is always common in sales. You can’t get away from it but how do you handle objections? How can you handle price objections in this new COVID world?  What’s your view on objections? Objections have always been in sales; these objections are not going anywhere.  The real point, however, is the why. Why are you getting these objections? What are you trying to achieve?  Sales reps need to figure out the why of the objections to be able to move around them.  The sales process isn't only about getting your goal which is closing the deal. It’s about slowing down and understanding the journey. It’s about determining the reason why the prospect is talking to you and why they took the initial call.  We should remember to ask the why for every part of the sales cycle.  Overcoming objections It comes down to having confidence in yourself as a seller and this comes from experience in getting knocked down several times and the experience of getting those wins.  Sales reps need to ask the difficul

    Sales isn’t sales without objections. As a sales rep, how will you overcome objections? In this episode, Donald Kelly talks about the basics of sales objections.  The basics in sales objections An objection is defined as an expression or feeling of disapproval, an opposition or reason of disagreeing.  From the buyer's perspective, objections are when the buyer has disapproval or maybe they don’t agree with something.  Common disapproval in sales training is when the potential clients say that they don’t believe that the training can help their team.  There’s truth in that objection but sometimes, the reason may just be because you have interjected yourself into the buyer’s situation or they may be uncomfortable with the situation moving forward.  One of the things that most people don’t like about salespeople is that they can come off as being pushy sometimes.  When we’re being pushy, the buyers or prospects won’t be in a state where they’d be ready to listen and be interested in the products or services off

    For many, 2020 has not been a good year. If 2020 left you feeling defeated then do the work to overcome it. In this episode, Chris Williams talks about how you can do that.  Moving forward in 2021 2020 was hard for everybody regardless of social status. It was a hard heart and mind-bending process.  For Chris, there are three things that matter: You need to be yourself. In this time when money and the market are getting pushed, it’s difficult for people to figure out who you are. Eventually, you start to become someone else. You start to see other people on social media and you aim to become more like that person. You need to stop that and anchor down to who you are and what your core values are.  Whatever your metrics are, whatever your numbers are, it’s not about the money. It’s about what you know that you’re good at and being able to anchor to that. A good handle on that will give you assurance and confidence.  Have an actionable plan. You need to put up an actionable plan that leans on your strength

    Some people perceive that there is a power struggle between the men and women in the sales industry. In this episode, Lorraine Ferguson talks about leveling the playing field for women in sales.  Getting to know Lorraine Ferguson Lorraine Ferguson started her career in sales back in the 80s with a startup technology company. She never thought that she’d see herself in sales.  Back then, there were still no women in sales. She was young and inexperienced then. So, she followed what the other salesmen did.  As a woman in a male-dominated career, she often felt intimidated by the men she met. She felt like she wasn’t taken seriously and there were times when she was only asked to take notes or to go and bring the boss.  As a young girl, she was taught that being good meant accommodating others and knowing her place. She didn’t realize that the principle stayed with her. She found herself buying into the buyer system.  Women not Glamorizing Sales  There is a negative stigma in sales. Many women don’t see sales

    Women are strong willed individuals who can thrive in the male-dominated sales industry. Today’s guest will help us understand how women can thrive in the male-dominated sales industry.  Thriving in the male-dominated industry Cherilynn Castleman released a book entitled, What’s in the C.A.R.D.S: Five Post-Pandemic Sales Strategies.  She’s been in sales for over 25 years and was able to experience the global financial crisis in 2008 first-hand.  When she first started selling, salespeople used to spend 20% of their time building relationships and 80% on sales. This book talks about doing the opposite. 80% of the time should be spent building relationships while the other 20% should be focused on sales.  The book is about how to connect and build relationships with other people. It’s about collaborating with clients and becoming more emphatic.  The Perfect Time to be a Woman Harvard Business Review released a study in May 2020 that women outsell men after a crisis. Women, by nature, are emphatic, collabora

    It’s a common problem among workers in many industries. The question remains, why are women sellers paid less than their male counterparts? Let’s talk about this subject in today’s episode.  Being in a woman in sales Jaunai Walker has been in the sales field for almost 20 years. It was her first job after she finished grad school.  By 2007, an opportunity opened up and she landed a role in medical sales.  Women being paid less isn’t only because of other factors but also because of ourselves.  Jaunai suggests that it’s critical to learn to look at ourselves as women and see what we put out there.  For most women, the stigma about what salespeople are remains in the back of their heads.  Another factor is that at the interview part, women sell and promote themselves less than men do. Women don’t want to be seen as boastful, so they present themselves as heart-centered as they often do themselves a disservice.  Women are seen as less confident compared to their male counterparts and because of that, they are o

    Imposter syndrome is common among salespeople, and it chooses no gender. In this episode, however, let’s learn how imposter syndrome affects women in sales.  Melissa Oakes truly believes that she changes people’s lives. Although many don’t share the same thought, being able to bring people back to a time in their lives where they were happiest is a huge accomplishment. In the Hair Club, her team gets to help people feel good about themselves every day. It’s not just about the hair; it’s about what people can do for themselves to make their lives better. From having a better hair day to having a better life. Starting Hair Club It started out as a Hair Club for Men where almost all the salespeople were men. Melissa was one of the first female consultants. She also shared the negative stigma of salespeople then.  Personally, she didn’t want to become a salesperson due to that stigma.  When she did get into sales, into a male-oriented industry, she felt like she always had to overcompensate. She felt like she ne
