  • Closing Sales

    Whether people want to admit it or not we are in the business of selling. Even, when you charge T & M you are selling the customer to accept hourly and material prices.

    Hit the forum with your best sales approach (technique) or hit the forum with a type of sale that you have difficulty.

    Closing sales is the most difficult part of the business. Lets keep in mind the difference between giving the job away at a price the customer cannot refuse and closing a sale to maximize your income.

    So Leonard, I must ask. What happened to your insistence of leaving the forum after the 15th? Did you get hooked? Is your wife still out of town?

      Does it matter? Hey Leonard, Pm me, I'll introduce you to a pro's only forum where there isn't any drama, politics or abundance of ego.

        Victorina is back. Thie girl won't take a break from work. She is sitting next to me right now. I work until about midnight most days. Even though it may appear that I am on the forum all the time, I am only taking breaks short breaks from designing ads, reading, paying bills, payroll, etc.

        I'm sort of still here. I guess I will change my log in name. Maybe someone can pick a new log in name. Be nice when choosing, please.

        Thank you very much.

        Jack.

            Hell yeah it matters. This is just one example where Leonard has lied to the forum. I don't listen liars as I can't trust anything they say. His "Arts Cabinet" name? He got that name when he posed as a customer giving props to his plumbing company. When Devine was here, he pissed off a lot of people because of his issues but he never lied to us and now and then would come up wish some really good advice. But Leonard has lied to the forum time and time again so whatever he says carries a shadow of doubt.

                I am still here, just been busy with the new baby. Thanks, I guess. I've been reading some of the old posts and although I don't agree with many of Leonard's business practices, he does ask some thought-provoking questions

                            Relative to the actual topic, I could sum the biggest trick I know in one word.

                            Assume.

                              I promise this will be the last time that I change my name. I had a lot to learn about the way the forum works and how to communicate with members. I will admit that I caused a lot of problems.

                              To give everyone a break, I am going to take off for the week and will not post anything until at least Monday.

                              My goal as a member is to share, with members, business ideas (secrets) that have been successful. This is not about taking sides, arguing, getting mad, or about trying to prove that I am smarter. It is purely to probe members for ideas and to share experiences that are productive to improve marketing, close more sales, and earn more money.

                              My real alias business name is Jack and that is the name I will use. There is a short story that goes with that name. I won't bore you.

                              I am sorry for being a pain.
                              See you Monday
                              Jack
                              I for one welcome your input and while we may not always agree I respect your experience. In time I'm sure the others will come around too.
