I hope you’re enjoying my ongoing series on marketing and sales funnels. 🙂

If you’ve been following along with me, then by now you’ve learned:

  1. How to earn high-quality attention from your leads
  2. How to qualify them and inspire them to take action
  3. How to build early trust with your leads by giving them value upfront
  4. And finally — how to nurture those leads into warm, eager prospects

Can you guess what we have left? 🙂

That’s right — closing that warm lead on your offer… otherwise known as selling.

On today’s episode of Backstage Business, I’m going to show you how to develop the #1 most valuable (and most intimidating!) skill for any entrepreneur — sales.

You will learn how to connect with people by understanding what their points of interest are, and figuring out what their best outcome would be. I will walk you through the right questions to ask on a sales call with your prospect; why it’s important to make the sales call about them and not you or your offer; how to feel confident about selling; and more.

In this episode, we cover topics such as:

  • How to close on a lead.
  • The importance of ensuring the customer is right for you.
  • How to connect with people the right way.
  • What a great call should sound like.
  • Why identifying the problem is crucial.
