Stop selling, start creating trust.
If you flick through the pages of typical sales books and sales training materials, you will find a constant flow of sales messages like, "focus on closing the sale", "overcome objections", "be relentless", "accept rejection as a normal part of selling", "use persuasion to get useful information about your prospects", and "chase the sale".
In short, you're advised to get the sale at the expense of the human relationship. For the customer, this approach is transparent and all too familiar. Crossing social boundaries and adding pressure to the sales process makes it a gut-wrenching and painful process.
There is a much better way to succeed in selling - moving away from the hidden agenda of focusing on making the sale to a place of complete trust and authenticity. When you arrive at this place, it opens up a whole new world of sales opportunities for you and your business.
In other words, when you stop "selling" and start building authentic relationships based on trust, authenticity, and integrity, the possibilities are endless.
