Being such a fan of twitter (@bridgegroupinc), I thought it would be interesting to ask some fellow “twiteratti” to contribute sales productivity tips. But, of course they had to do so in 140 characters - or just about 10 seconds - or less! It was a fun and interesting exercise.
Here is what I received:
rainmakermaker: "Unfinished cycles kill salespeople! Start. Run. Finish. Start. Run. Finish. Always agree to next step and date. Track starts and finishes."
Rick Roberge - Sales Consultant The RainMaker Maker
sellingtools: "Spend more time w/prospects & less time on everything else by using tools: timedriver, egrabber, iSell, workstreamer, klpz, echosign, glance."
Nancy Nardin – Founder/Editor Smart Selling Tools
jillkonrath: "YOU are the prime differentiator. Not your product/service. Just you - your expertise, ideas & insights. Realize that & sales are a SNAP!"
Jill Konrath – Best Selling Author Snap Selling
pc4media: "Track your leads as they visit your site and use soc media to make timely and relevant connections via email, phone and social media sites. "
Pete Caputa - VAR Sales & Marketing Manager Hubspot
Sensing any trends? I absolutely did. There is a sea change going on in sellling. Those companies, managers and Reps that won't adapt are being left behind.
So, what advice do you have to offer in 140 characters / 10 seconds or less?
