Hope you're all well.
I was selling marketing packages to local businesses for a while and was struggling. Aaron Doud made the suggestion I become a car salesman for a while to improve my selling technique, which I thank him for. I did just that for 10 months and improved greatly as a salesman. I've a lot to thank Aaron for as his advice was solid, and I'd recommend it to anyone looking to sell better.
Since then I've gone back out on my own and am selling marketing packages for a couple of grand here and there. But I'm selling to particular niche and its seasonal, and not what I'm looking for. Also I'm looking for something bigger to sell.
1) I'm now looking for something better and high ticket to sell. I want something I can sell for commission over the phone, either taking the money over the phone or booking a meeting and closing there, with or without a written proposal.
Can anyone advise me on what to sell, or how to go about finding a product to sell. It could be a physical product, or it could be selling my marketing consulting to bigger companies and outsourcing the actual work. It could be selling insurance, or whatever.
I like sports cars, boats, music, guitars. Do I sell something I love, or can one confidently sell something completely different they don't have experience of, as long as sufficient product research is done. It could be solar panels, heaters, whatever.
I don't want to work for anyone else, I want to be independent using my own company and selling what I want. What are some high ticket stuff you'd recommend looking at selling from home. I'm confident in sales ability to sell high ticket stuff. How would one find these companies and how would you approach them.
I basically want to earn 6 figures from home. The last few months I've been on 2-5k per month selling what I've been selling, but I've been having to fulfil the service myself - I'd rather just sell and move on.
Ideally it would be selling domestically, as the lead time is shorter, but then with domestic comes no call lists etc, so maybe b2b is the way forward, who knows. Any advice is appreciated.
2) Can anyone recommend any books or warrior threads or warrior products geared towards selling over the phone, and/or in person, including scripts, etc. Feel free to pitch your own products if you stand by them. I've just been reading a thread on Jordan bellforts straight line system, and seen recommended Thor saleswarrior - are these good sources?
Thanks in advance to all who reply. I love selling and know I'm in great company on this forum.
