Succeed Without "Selling"

The more you think about selling, the less you will sell

The truth is you can't sell anyone anything. Instead of "selling," try being curious. Ask, truly listen, and connect the dots. Get out of 'sales brain' and into 'curious brain.'

Synopsis

Most small business owners, and salespeople, are using outdated selling methods and wondering why they aren't more successful. Succeed Without "Selling" addresses the changes to the sales landscape, including how the ABCs of sales have changed.

This book explores every aspect of the sales process, from target market identification to account management. And because there is so much misinformation out there, I've included chapters specifically for sales managers, direct sellers, and service providers.

The goal of this book is to provide sales professionals and small business owners with the realities of today's sales environment with tools they can use to improve their processes, and therefore, their results.

Why support this book?

  • The truth about what works, and doesn't work, when selling your product or service.
  • Best practices for every aspect of sales.
  • Scripts, processes, and forms the reader can use immediately

Audience

Advance praise

"It’s a new economy. The “Winter” economy as proposed by the late Chet Holmes. Business approaches that worked in the Fall economy will not work in the Winter economy. Diane has done an amazing job of breaking down the sales and sales management process for these times. Her approach is client centric and focuses on how to serve the client rather than how to close them. And by doing so, create long lasting and profitable relationships. This book is a must read for anyone who is involved in the art of selling. And if you own a business, you are selling! Without a doubt reading this book will be a worthy investment of your time!"

Kevin Kruse

A terrific book. With trademark clarity and insight, Diane Helbig teaches the new mindset that is required for sales success in today’s business world.

"P-r-a-c-t-i-c-a-l. That's how you spell the secrets to success by Diane Helbig. Diane demystifies successful sales with advice any small business person can follow. This book is Exhibit A as to why Diane has been such a valued columnist at Small Business Trends - for years! Every small business owner interested in boosting revenue should get this book today!"

Atmosphere Press logo Atmosphere Press

Atmosphere Press is an independent full-service publisher for books in genres ranging from non-fiction to fiction to poetry to children's picturebooks, with a special emphasis on being an author-friendly approach to getting a book into the world. We're professional, honest, and kind.

Here’s what we stand for:

Honesty: because our mission is to be author-friendly, that means always giving honest advice about the ins and outs of the authorial life. We are dedicated to sticking by one of our founding precepts: “if I were the author, what would I want to know?”

Transparency: publishing is rife with dodgy behavior, from predatory vanity presses who promise the moon to traditional presses who make book changes without the author’s permission. We’re dedicated to letting you see the wizard behind the curtain, so you can rest easy that everything’s on the up and up.

Professionalism: with decades of combined years of writing, editing, designing, and publishing experience, our staff knows the ins and outs of the industry, and will be responsive and helpful. And of course, we will only publish books that truly contribute something wonderful to the world.

Kindness: as an author-friendly press, we take the word “friendly” seriously. A good publisher shouldn’t be just a business partner, but should be full of people you’d want to invite to dinner. Whether it be making a good joke or allaying your worries about being an author, kindness is our hallmark.

Making Your Book Awesome: we really can’t settle for anything less. We want our authors and their readers to be blown away when they first hold that book in their hands. It needs to look good inside and out, and feel good to the touch. And, of course, the words need to be top-notch, and our editors are devoted to making that the case.
