Sales Training Tips: Sell yourself first

There is one vital fact missed by the majority of sales people. People will search for sales coaching tips and techniques looking for the secret sauce to make us master of the craft. Sales training from retail to car sales to cold calling can give you the skill you need, but if that course does't touch on this one key piece, the puzzle will always be incomplete.

You must be sold first. If you have ever found yourself in a sales slump and are looking for the motivation to get out, you can overcome a sales slump simply by reaffirming your belief in your product, your company and yourself. To get through a sales slump you have to get sold... again.

The video above is from Grant Cardone's online university and you will see that if you're not selling, if you're not producing, understand that something happened where you became unsold.
