Key Challenges Salespeople Are Facing Today

Recently, Brad Miller, Director of Business Development at Fathom, interviewed me about my new book, AGILE SELLING, and the key challenges salespeople are facing today. I thought you might like to listen in.

Watch the video to hear my responses to these common sales challenges:

Being Overwhelmed With Information

Brad: One of the reasons I got into sales was because of your book, SNAP Selling. I was super excited to get an uncorrected manuscript of AGILE SELLING, which is being released on May 29th, 2014. Jill, tell me about AGILE SELLING, and how it helps people deal with their own crazy-busyness.

Dealing With Failure

Brad: One of the things you said here at one of our company presentations is that there's no such thing as a failure. What do you mean by that?

Sales and Marketing Alignment

Brad: What are the challenges you see between the alignment of sales and marketing?

Salespeople as a Commodity

Brad: Sales in general has changed a lot in the last 10 years. The salesperson has become commoditized. Do you think that's the case?

Impact of Your Online Presence

Brad: We were talking about a company's and salesperson's online presence because information is so available now. If someone is going to cold call into a company and start a dialogue, what's the first thing a potential prospect or customer is going to do?

Social Selling

Brad: What is your view on "social selling"?

Sales Presentation Mistakes

Brad: Oftentimes, salespeople want to get as much information across during their sales presentations as possible, and they end up with giant presentations. What are your tips on how to shorten that up?

Evolution of Salespeople

Brad: Where does the evolution of salespeople go from here?Common Sales Challenges

After a successful career in the sales world, writing five books, and speaking internationally, Jill is now tackling an even bigger challenge. She's focused on bringing the "millions in the middle" together to solve some of the biggest issues facing our country and the world. Jill truly believes so much more is possible if we can work together.
