Want to know how to make all your selling and your enrollment more efficient, more fun, more productive, more effective?
Look for “No”. Eliminate opportunities. Get rid of deadwood.
See, in everybody’s life there are too many things that we’ve grown accustomed to, that we’ve resigned to – things that we consider to be something that it’s not, just because of a story we tell ourselves.
And this includes people, conversations, and:
It includes the opportunities that you think you have in your pipeline or in your CRM.
Fact is, a lot of the people in your CRM just won’t convert.
Maybe it’s not the right time, or they don’t have the budget.
Or maybe they’re not the right fit for you or you for them.
Or you don’t solve exactly the problem that they need solving…
There’s all kinds of reasons why someone just won’t be your client.
But you keep all these names in your database, and you keep looking at them, and you keep trying to connect with them and engage with them and following up…
Because hey: Opportunity, right?
If you tell yourself it’s an opportunity despite your instinct or your common sense telling you that really, nothing will move forward with them, you’re just wasting time and energy trying to get those people to work with you and buy from you.
So what you want to do, is have a close look and identify the disqualifiers.
You know, those aspects and elements a lead has, that tell you that “No, this is not the right fit”.
Get rid of all those names, deals and opportunities.
On another note:
I’m building an app that coaches you on working your pipeline, moving your deals forward – and closing them faster and at better rates.
It’s called SalesFlow Coach, and we’re scheduled for beta-release early May 2022.
