I don’t know about you, but I am not a sales person. One of my first jobs in college was at a movie theatre and I had the hardest time asking if people wanted to upgrade their popcorn to a larger size FOR ONLY A QUARTER! It was really hard for me, especially when I would clean up after the shows and see how much popcorn was left in the bags and tubs. Every single time. It was a waste and I couldn’t wrap my mind around it.
Then I started working for Apple. Their products were phenomenal and I did (and still do!) really believe in what they sell and the peripherals that they recommend. It was easy to inform the customers about what options were available, because most of the time they didn’t know what you could get.
It’s helped me transition to selling in person for photography as well. I know what will look great on a wall and an 8×10 is not it. I know how to make you look amazing and gorgeous and know that you want to enjoy them in as many ways as possible to remember not just that time period in your life, but the whole experience and how much fun you had.
And then Kristen Kalp (one of my favorite people in the world….seriously, I love her!) comes out with Sales Without Shame.
First off, you know this will get down and dirty. Because that’s how she is. More importantly, you can get a free teaser at the site right now and see if it will work for you.
How amazing is that? And it’s really good to. You need to check it out and get ready to have your mind blown. Learn to sell with no shame and reap the rewards, both confidence and financially!
