Cheaper alternatives to Jordon Belforts straight line system

9 replies
I am involved in b2b telesales and I am always looking for ways to improve.
Recently I have been researching Jordon Belforts straight line persuasion system and I am very impressed and would love to purchase it but I simply can not afford it at the moment!

Are there any cheaper alternatives out there? What books, YouTube videos etc are out there that teach the same techniques he does?

Thanks a million!

    You can obtain several hours worth of straight line training directly on Youtube, it is very intuitive, and you can derive the central message from that-it is not a magic bullet, simply a way of applying persuasive speech to convince. Mostly common sense, no mystery really!
    But yes, do a search on YouTube there are several over 1 hour sessions.

      I've watched almost every video regarding the straight line system on YouTube I was just looking for a resource that would go into more depth. What's the best resource for telesales/telemarketing people out there? What resource can literally make someone turn from poor to great or the closest thing to it?

        I did that, some 30 years ago, when I was starting an electrical supply company.
        I took it from the kitchen table to over a million dollars in annual sales.

        The secret: I made the phone calls. Then, when that was done, I made more calls.
        And when I finished doing that, I made more calls.

        I went from terrible on the phone, to very good. And, it didn't take me long, either.

        Simple, eh? The good news is, just about any script will get you there.

        Ya just gotta make the calls.

        Oh, and if you find a "magic System" that produces instant phone skills without
        having to put in the time and effort to develop them, be sure to let your ol'
        buddy Ron know. Okay?

        It's been about 3 weeks since I finished watching the straight line course.

        If you are looking for great alternatives, I would...

        Watch everything that Stan Billue has on youtube.
        Read everything Jason Kanigan posts.

        the straight line helped me a lot but those 2 have delivered more value for a much better price.

          The Book, The Ultimate Book Of Phone Scripts by Mike Brooks is almost identical to the Straight Line System. It has a dozen responses for every objection, several prospecting scripts, and everything that's in the Belfort course.

          And I hate to break this to you, but the Belfort course is simply good in home sales applied to the phone.
          Sure, the scripts are good, but it's the fact that these guys were on the phone full time, hitting hard, and closing relentlessly...that made them successful.

          And they were selling very high commission offers.

        Really, there isn't much more, if any, "depth" to it. Your best bet is to practice what you got out of it so far and that's how you'll learn.

        After a while your eyes and ears will be tuned into anything that hints at aiding you and you'll pick up little nuggets as you develop your technique.

    I've gone though the straight line persuasion system many..many times and have even watched the live seminars that Jordan Belfort has given. Amazing stuff and highly recommended!

    I will say that Frank Kern has some pretty good sales training with his marketing courses. I know for a fact that Frank has learned and studied Jordan Belforts stuff. You may be able to pick up some valuable skill sets from Frank.

    However, Franks stuff aint cheap either :/
    Good luck.
