Judy Robinett joins me on this episode of the Salesman Podcast to share her tips on how to become a power connector and close more deals through your network.
A Powerful Network Is Your Biggest Sales Asset
The show is kicked off with Judy giving her thoughts on cold calling and then Will dives into why this has now clearly been replaced by warm leads through networking.
“You just do some research on them and reach out in a gracious manner and I’ve never had anybody turn me down”
The show is wrapped up with Judy explaining what you should do when you finally get in front of that contact that you’ve been networking towards; handshakes, influence and language.
“Study after study shows that your network equals your net-worth”
Judy and Will also cover –
- Why cold calling is dead
- How beginners can start building their network from scratch
- Why millennial salespeople are missing the point of networking in the real world
- How to engage with the C-Suit (and feel confident about doing so)
