The Myth of the Enthusiastic Salesperson

Released Tuesday, 28th November 2006
Good episode? Give it some love!
In this week's episode of The Advanced Selling Podcast, Bill Caskey and Bryan Neale discuss the problems associated with being too enthusiastic about your product/service. The problem is that your enthusiasm can get in the way of focusing on helping your prospect solve their problem. Enthusiasm in sales is OK, as long as you're more excited about helping your client solve his problem than you are about your product. When you show up at a prospect's office and the only thing that you're excited about is closing a deal, the prospect senses that -- thereby raising their BS detector. This is a perfect episode for the "technical seller." Pass it on to your technical team, if you have one.
