#9: Remain above the line at all times

A little sales gift from Premier Performing Arts

Sales can be a tedious job. On one hand, many people (especially non sales people) feel that it’s sleazy and low brow. On the other hand, it can be the most important function of a business.

Until there’s a sale, there is no business.

Here are Frankie Worthington’s top 10 sales tips that will maximise sales in your business:

  1. You can sell only if you yourself are convinced
    If you are not sold on the product or service, it will be an uphill battle to sell to someone else.
  2. Be clear and direct
    When pitching do not use complicated diction. Pride yourself instead on being able to explain the concept as quickly, clearly and simple as possible. This is important because the biggest problem in sales is client confusion.
