I just want to take a moment, in this video, and introduce myself…
I have been in the Sales and Marketing Industry for over 20 years. I have a background in retail sales, as well as business to business and business to consumer consultative sales.
I learned early on, with my first “Sales Job” (at the age of 19), that I was not cut out for the “Hard Sell” philosophy.
My first job was as a salesperson for a replacement window company in a small county in Eastern Pennsylvania. My boss came from the car industry, and he taught the hard sell, and I just couldn’t/wouldn’t go there. As a result, my time as a salesperson with that company was short-lived, although I did transition within the company to a lead generator – canvassing the area where we were installing windows and going door-to-door to get leads.
I am not going to go into my entire employment history now, I just wanted to explain that I was no stranger to hard sales tactics and I never used or approved of them. Once I discovered Consultative Sales, with needs analysis and problem resolution, I was hooked. This way felt like more of a partnership with the client/customer, rather than warfare.
Building on this philosophy, it is what brought me to where I am today with Attraction Marketing, attracting new prospects, customers and clients, rather than cold calling and chasing after people who have no interest.
I will expand on all of this as we go along from here, this is just the introduction, but I hope you’ll join me on this adventure…
