People often associate selling with negative connotations. Being pushy, dishonest, and manipulative are just some of the words that come to mind for most people. However, although you may cringe at the thought of selling, you don’t have to sacrifice your values at the cost of a sale. Authenticity, enthusiasm, and an honest display of your expertise can be more influential than mirroring the actions of a double-dealing used car salesman. To help get you over this hurdle, COO Julia Becker Collins contributed to Healing Point Therapeutics’ series, The 22s, to reveal the secrets of how to sell when you hate selling.

What You’ll Learn About Selling

Many people have a stereotypical caricature that comes to mind when they think of selling: a loud, hyperactive, fast-talking guy in a checkered suit. But successful selling requires an ethical approach. Instead of asking, “How can I get this person to spend money?” ask, “How can I solve their problems?” In this webinar, our COO Julia Becker Collins will impart such tips as:

  • Exhibiting expertise in your field to reassure your client that you know what’s best
  • Formulating your sales pitch without making it feel disingenuous
  • Selling from a place of authenticity and honesty
  • Using sales as a filtering process to define your ideal client more accurately
  • Recognizing not everyone is a good fit for you as a client
  • Ditching the notion that you should give something away for free, thinking no one will pay

Julia also explains that you can’t be everything to everyone and that it’s inevitable that a sales pitch will fail from time to time. The key is not to let it get to you.
