I checked my email this morning and came across this article from sales strategist Jill Konrath. The email heading read This is the most important blog post I have ever written, so I decided to open it and take a look.
When I opened the email, I was confused a little by the title:
Avoid This Killer Sales Strategy at All Costs
I’m not the type of person who clamors to learn about the newest sales strategy, or strategies to avoid for that matter. What mainly interests me about sales is the communication and behavior factors that are involved. I began reading the article, with a little skepticism.
I would have to say that even though Konrath directed this blog post towards the “sales crowd,” the message is something we all need to hear. A while back, I wrote articles about multitasking (how I believe it is a myth), and how our society has become disconnected and distracted by our electronic gadgets. Ms. Konrath’s article really tells the story of how dramatically life can change because someone chose to be distracted for a few seconds. Yes, I used the word chose because people make the choice to pick up the phone and call or text while driving. It is a very dangerous habit that can have serious consequences, as you will read.
Below is the link to Ms. Konrath’s article. Please read and share it with everyone you know.
