How to Sell More CD

How to Sell More, In Less Time, With No Rejection, Using Common Sense Telephone Techniques-On Audio CD

Lots of sales programs cover theory … old school hyberbole that you would be as uncomfortable repeating as you are hearing it, and downright nonsense written by people who probably have never made a sales call in their life. What I’ve found is that we salespeople by nature are a demanding, intelligent, and somewhat impatient group and want instantly-usable, common sense ideas that really work.

That’s what I deliver, and precisely what you’ll get in my new audio CD package, “How to Sell More in Less Time, With No Rejection, Using Common Sense Telephone Techniques.”

I consider myself a “sales scientist.” Over the past 20 years I’ve built my business and reputation on researching, testing, and refining sales strategies and techniques for professionals like you and me who use the phone as a main method of communication in the professional, consultative sales process.

Anyone who has ever picked up the phone to make a cold call, or followed up on a call after they’ve sent out literature, a catalog, or samples, knows that it’s much more difficult than making a face-to-face call, and there are certain nuances that make using the phone a different animal. I demystify the process, poke fun at the old techniques and myths of sales that flat out do not work by phone, and show proven, word-for-word examples that will work for you.

In these 16 audio CD’s, (about 16 hours total) I provide more useable how-to ideas on telephone sales than you have ever seen in one place before.

And I say that with confidence.

If you use the phone in professional, ethical, needs-based sales, there is simply no way you could not benefit from the material in these CD’s–as long as you listen to them and use the material. I guarantee it.

“We’ve only been through the first two CDs so far and they are outstanding!
Here are the comments I’ve gotten from the staff:
– ‘New points of view from every perspective’
– ‘You give both sides (buyer/seller) of the conversation’
– ‘Multiple examples so we can apply your knowledge to our
industry or any market’
– ‘Easy to begin and stop making the common mistakes

“Art, I have been in one form of sales or another for over 35 years and your process and products carry as much value as my many years of first hand trial and error…. Where were you back in the late 60’s?!

Frequently Asked Questions About This Program

Q. I already have the “How to Sell More in Less Time” books. Will I still benefit from this program?
Certainly! From a pure content perspective, this program combines the material in the two books, restructures it all by category, updates it where necessary, and adds to it. And from a presentation perspective, of course you’re getting the instruction on audio, kind of like the difference between reading the lyrics to a song versus hearing them performed. You can listen wherever you have or take a CD player.   

Q. Do I need to go through each CD, step-by-step?
There are CD’s for each part of the sales call, so you could do that and use it as a training program. However, each CD can stand alone.
