10 Ways to Sabotage Your Sales

Want to hit the highway to sales sabotage?  Here are 10 ways to get there.salessabotagethumb

  1. Don’t listen to anything your client says.
    When you don’t listen to your clients you show them you’re undisciplined and self-absorbed.  This a great way to not sell a dime.
  2. Don’t come prepared to your meetings.
    Are you going to sell a policy if you show up without the app or policy information?  Nope, sure won’t.
  3. Wait around for leads.
    If you aren’t actively pursuing and creating leads for yourself, you can guarantee your sales will flop.
  4. Lie to your clients.
    Misrepresenting or omitting information may save your sale in the moment, but it’s a certain setup for a major pitfall in the near or not-so-near future.
  5. Fall down on following up.
    If you leave your clients in the dark, your sales aren’t far behind.  Nobody wants to be ignored or put on the back burner.
  6. Take zero accountability.
    If your sales are suffering, not taking accountability that you are doing something to contribute to that is a nail in the coffin.
  7. Be a “Negative Nelly”
    Having a negative mindset and outlook will directly translate to negative outcomes in life and in sales.
  8. Give up.
    When things get tough, giving up and walking away will never put you on the path to success.
  9. Don’t try to learn or grow from situations.
    Professional and personal growth are key to success- remaining stagnant and repeating the same processes won’t push you forward.
  10. Sell for personal gain.
    Selling products to your clients simply to pad your pockets instead of fit their needs will ultimately be counterproductive for you- people can sense when an agent truly wants to help them or is just there to make a dollar.
