Your Mindset is Everything

Your mindset is the #1 factor in increasing your sales.  The other 2 ways to increase sales we will cover in this article won’t help you if your mindset is wrong.  Your mindset is your beliefs and your comfort zone.  Your mindset is whether you believe leads are hard to find or easy to find.  It’s if you believe you are bothering people when you make your prospecting calls or serving them.  It’s whether you honor your commitments or ignore them.  It’s whether you use a sales script or if you feel you’re better off “winging it”.  It’s how you feel about asking for the order and handling your prospect’s objections.  It’s whether you work a full day on Fridays or if you leave early.  It’s whether you believe that in this economy nobody has any money or that you have less competition.

Your Strategy to Increase Sales

Your strategy is the tactics that you are using to get more sales.  It is all your sales systems.   It’s your script if you use one.  It’s what you do to generate leads.  Your strategy is your system for getting referrals.  It’s how you handle objections and your follow up system.  Your sales strategy is the area of increasing sales that is easiest to improve.  You can always get information on this blog to get more sales by improving your sales systems.
