The bottom line is, people buy from companies they know, like and trust. They also buy from those who are perceived as experts in their field.

To build trust:

  • Show you care about THEM instead of appearing only focused on a sale. When you interact with a prospect, adopt a helpful mindset. When a prospect engages you in communications (phone, in person, email, or text exchange), listen to what the prospect is saying so you can respond directly to their particular needs. Exceed their expectations in how you interact with them. Treat all of your prospects like you would like to be treated as a prospect. (more…)

Here are 5 elements to getting more customers from the same number of leads:

By Scott Hallman on January 24, 2017

You spend so much time and money to acquire a customer…and then they stop buying, even though they have a need or future need.
