Brett leads a group of sales professionals and is responsible for the implementation and execution of sales strategies. A long-time coach, Brett works closely with marketing and operations management to improve lead management and distribution.

Sales is not simply a process, it's also a mindset. Once a lead is identified as a prospect that your company can help, effective sales professionals are able to create an environment where the prospect actually desires the product or service. The ability to bring about that desire breaks down trust barriers and accelerates the close.

Brett walks through actual examples where he utilizes the following four principles to advance the sale through to a conversion:

  1. Challenge the prospect something different than their assumptions.
  2. Storytelling to relate emotionally connect with the prospect.
  3. Utilize the herd mentality to show prospects they're safe with others who have made the same decision.
  4. Use scarcity to explain that the opportunity must be taken advantage of or could be lost.

Brett leads a group of internal sales professionals who have set out to improve independent medical practices. He's also responsible for leading a group of ten outside sales reps from all across the country. Brett is responsible for process implementation and execution, developing sales strategies, forecasting, and coaching. He works closely with marketing and operations management to improve lead management and distribution. And, of course, he works to help reps close deals and fight to foster a positive, energetic and engaging culture.

This is the first part in multiple podcasts with Brett to help business owners and sales representatives become more proficient in their sales efforts. Because it's so prevalent, we started off with The Do's and Don'ts of Writing Effective Prospecting Emails. Brett walks through a solid template for initiating a prospecting request that both captures the recipient's interest and captures their attention.
