Work on One Thing a Week to Get Better

It’s mid-July, and I’d like to ask you a question: How much better of a sales rep are you today than you were in January?

Can you identify the areas you’ve improved in and measure their impact on your closing rates?

If you’re like the vast majority of sales reps (or sales teams), the answer is, “I don’t really know…”

Here’s a quick tip: If nothing changes, nothing changes.

You’ve all probably heard this before, but in sales this has an added weight: If you aren’t actively working to improve your skill set, then you’re likely making the same mistakes you always make—and getting the same results.

There is an easy way to change this. Simply buy a good book on improving sales, pick just one technique or idea you feel applies to your selling situation, and then commit to adapting, using, and perfecting that one technique for a week.

If you do that, within 90 days you’ll have picked up twelve proven new sales skills that will have a dramatic effect on your bottom line.

This is a simple solution to getting better, but it isn’t always easy to commit to. We’re all very busy, and we may be doing okay with sales now, and who wants to put in all that extra work anyway?

The top 20% do, that’s who.

And that’s why top producers across industries earn more money, enjoy better bonuses and perks, and find their jobs easier and more enjoyable than 80% of their so-called competition.

Hey, you deserve all those perks and extra income, but they aren’t going to just fall into your lap. You’re going to have to do something to get them.

Focusing on learning and applying just one new skill or scripted technique is an easy, proven way to make more sales with more confidence.

And that’s worth a little bit of effort, isn’t it?
