 {3}     Feature Article - COLD CALLING IN A COLD MARKET - PART 2 by Gavin Ingham

	Thanks for your comments on last week's article the importance of controlling your
 	attitude before, during and after a call. They were greatly appreciated, particularly
 	the one manager who mailed me directly and said, "I keep my staff motivated during
 	calls by threatening them with the sack if they don't stay motivated!" Errr, yes thanks
	for that!
	So this week what I want to have a look at is the importance of structure - and I
 	am going to recommend a very "old classic", as a structure, but not without some
 	comments first! When I ask sales professionals how long they think that a client
 	actually listens to them, they all know that it is only a matter of a few seconds.
 	Follow that up with a question about the importance of those first few seconds
	- and someone always says something about it being crucial. Why then, do few
 	sales people take the time or effort to really maximise this opportunity?
	I have done some research here and I think this is quite useful. When we advertise
 	for sales people we use words like "opportunity", "flair", "dynamic", "entrepreneurial"
 	and so on. Whilst this may be the right thing to do, it attracts candidates who are
	attracted by possibility and opportunity.
 	But! Sales consultants also need to be able to follow structures. But - there is a
 	possibility that the sales person says stuff like "if you stifle my individuality, I won't
 	be able to sell". Get real! Every success has structure behind it. If you want flexibility,
	get a structure. If you employed an administrator to file, and they filed wrongly you 
 	wouldn't accept it - so why let sales people sabotage your business by opening calls
 	So what do I use? Good old Reason, Task, Action; Reason for the call; Task during
	the call; Action at the end of the call. And, most importantly, make it about the
 	client, not you - so that they want to listen to you. Avoid words like "tell", "show",
	"sell", "demonstrate" etc. - and avoid making assumptions such as "we can show
	you how to improve..."
	Let's look at one we did in a recent seminar for a "warm" call following up a mailed
 	Delegate’s version ..........."It's Gavin Ingham calling from XYZ. I recently sent you 
	a mailer. Did you read it? I wanted to tell you about our new product launch."
	Gavin's version ..............
 	"It's Gavin Ingham calling from XYZ - you've probably heard of us - we are the leading
 	sales motivation company in the UK. The reason for the call today is to follow up on
	 some information that you recently received. My role is to answer any questions that
 	you may have on that information; I'd value your opinion."
 	Let's face it,  after your investigations you can position your solution if and when
	 If you want to know more about how to explode your results from cold and warm
 	calling, then you must attend our February 25th seminar, POWER CANVASSING.
 	You'll be able to read more on sales performance coaching in the next issue.

 Have a great week! Gavin Ingham

	We all know the importance of cold calling for hitting our targets and budgets, yet 
	canvassing for new business is one of the most misunderstood and loathed areas of the 
	sales process.
	Trying to remain consistent, proactive and successful when cold calling, either individually or 
 	as part of a team is one of the most difficult challenges facing us all in a tough climate. Fact!

	At Koach, we understand that success is a finely balanced blend of attitudes and skills - both 
	being fundamentally important. Cold calling skills are ineffective without the right attitude 
	to use them, and your results from utilising your positive attitude will be greatly increased  
 	with the right skills. In POWER CANVASSING, you will learn both the attitudes and the skills of 
 	peak performers in new business development so that you can win more business - and be 
 	consistently more successful.

 {7}     CALENDAR - plan your POWER sales seminars for 2003!

 	The popular POWER sales seminars are delivered at the RIBA centre in London by
 	Gavin Ingham, a leading UK attitudinal and motivational coaching expert, through one
 	day open seminars in a series of 3 unique programmes. The programmes can be taken
 	as a course or joined individually to suit your particular needs.
 	The 3 seminars (P1, P2, P3) focus on the 3 core components of proven business
		POWER MOTIVATION (P1) - This is the key attribute of any peak performer
    		and needs to be mastered in today's highly competitive business world.
    		Motivation and attitude can be viewed as your ability to access your
    		skills when you most need them. In this dynamic, fun packed day, we help
    		you unlock the key motivational strategies of peak performers in business
    		and sales. Wake up your team and book now!
    		POWER CANVASSING (P2) - The art of new business generation! The art of
    		cold calling is 80% attitude versus 20% skills. Most cold calling training
    		is skills based not attitudinal. It’s easy to teach structure or learn ines 
		but its attitude that makes the difference when you come to pick up
    		the phone. As sales professionals we all need to keep the sales funnel full.
    		By distilling the key strategies of peak performers in this crucial sales
    		area we've defined the strategies that differentiate top performers from
    		mere "wannabes". Explore this area with Koach - and access your ability to
    		open more doors and create more business opportunities. If you are looking to
    		explode your performance - call us now!
    		POWER SALES (P3) - The top 10% of sales professionals outperform the other
    		90%. Why? What is the key ingredient of their success? What are the factors
    		that differentiate top sales individuals and teams and allow them to consistently 
		over achieve their targets? In our experience the top 5 keys are attitude, 
		learning / self-assessment, energy, fun and the use of a reliable, repeatable 
		sales-structure. This programme includes all five keys and will enable you and 
		your teams to sell more - now!
