  • Words Decision Makers Love to Hear: Buyers are particularly attracted to phrases that are linked to their business goals and objectives. Start speaking in these terms and you'll definitely attract their attention.
  • Don't Send Prospecting Emails Like This - Please! Email has to be a core part of your prospecting strategy…But with the overwhelming amount of information flooding inboxes today, every single word in your email to a decision maker has to be carefully thought out.
  • I Hate LinkedIn Profiles Like This... Your LinkedIn profile is NOT a brochure. And it is NOT a resume. It's where prospects go to check YOU out – as a person. They want to know if you can bring them ideas, insights and information that will help them achieve their goals.
