Practical Pointers
A good salesperson genuinely cares more about the client and the client’s business than the actual sale. It’s about helping them get what they need, not the sale per se. And this is not just a throwaway line; it requires a genuine attitude shift. When you truly start to think this way, you’ll be a much better salesperson.
When you have a smaller budget, consistency is key. Focus on the media channels that are free, plus an add-on layer for a targeted audience. Better that your message be strong and consistent in one or two places than sporadic and inconsistent over many. Consistency gives the impression of success.
Don’t confuse the difference between branding and marketing. Branding is positioning yourself and making sure that your core focus is clear. Marketing is getting the message out to the public. No matter how good your branding is, a failure in marketing means that no one will ever find out anything about you.
There is no magic formula for achieving a proper work-life balance. The best advice may be to be intentional about what you’re doing. Even when you need to give all of your attention to your business, let your family know that the next few days are going to be difficult. By including them in the conversation, you can encourage them to cheer you on… and they know that when those days are over, you’ll have time to put business aside and give all of your attention to them.
