Sales 101: Beware the Dreaded Cell Phone Ringer Business Articles | November 29 Cheap Panthers Jerseys , 2006
Some time ago, I stopped bringing my cell phone into presentations and sales calls. I want my customer or prospect to know that our meeting is the sole purpose for my visit and that his business is important to me. At that moment in time, his business is my only concern. My focus and attention are directed at him. This practice non-verbally states that I value and respect his time, conscious of the importance of our relationship

Salespeople are notorious for consistently searching for ways to improve their performance, provide additional services and increase sales. Sometimes however Jordan Scarlett Game Jersey , despite their very best intentions, salespeople "shoot themselves in the foot" allowing disaster to replace success at the most inopportune time.

I recently made a sales call on a new prospect which was carefully investigated and researched prior to that initial visit. That call was quite fruitful, from the initial phone call requesting the appointment to my presentation itself. It set the stage for a secondary visit, a joint call with our factory representative of a complex electronic product line. I knew that this factory representative was skilled regarding his product line and came highly recommended from someone whom I respect. In other words, I felt prepared Christian Miller Game Jersey , "armed" and ready to engage this future customer in dialogue concerning his production operations and our opportunities to provide needed solutions.

Initial pleasantries proceeded as expected, thus we began asking detailed questions concerning their existing operation. Our prospect, the Engineering Manager for a well known second-tier automotive provider, had unexpectedly asked the production manager and a manufacturing engineer to join us. Although these additional individuals were quite welcome and I was excited to have this wonderful opportunity to be in front of so many key individuals at their plant, it soon became evident there would be a concern over the professional impression we would impart upon them.

You see Will Grier Game Jersey , ten minutes into our presentation, the meeting was interrupted by my associate's unusual and loud cell phone ringer. He paused, retrieved his cell phone from his inside coat pocket and looked at the screen to see who was calling. Appearing disturbed, he further interrupted his presentation to the group, looking at his phone while saying "excuse me Greg Little Game Jersey ," and took the call, thus turning his back to the audience. Although his conversation had concluded in mere moments, the rude interruption left an obviously negative impression on our audience, setting an ominous tone for the remainder of the meeting. Unfortunately, my prospects knew exactly where they ranked on our scale of importance.

Few actions convey rudeness to another person or states "you are not nearly as important to me as I say you are" more than allowing a ringing cell phone to interrupt a personal conversation or business meeting. Even pausing to look at your phone while it rings or vibrates is rude and communicates the wrong message to the other person. When engaging someone else in dialogue Brian Burns Game Jersey , that person should be number one; he should feel like he has your undivided attention. If nothing else, it is simply common courtesy to remain attentive and focused on the other person or people participating in the conversation. It is expected professional behavior.

Some time ago, I stopped bringing my cell phone into presentations and sales calls. I want my customer or prospect to know that our meeting is the sole purpose for my visit and that his business is important to me. At that moment in time, his business is my only concern. My focus and attention are directed at him. This practice non-verbally states that I value and respect his time, conscious of the importance of our relationship. Any call that arrives during this time will be automatically routed to voice mail or to my office Curtis Samuel Game Jersey , ready for my immediate attention when later appropriate.

Look around; you will see this simple rule of etiquette violated quite often. Interestingly, you most likely have been on the receiving end of this behavior yourself. It rubs you the wrong way, doesn't it? Then make a difference. Break the mold. Give others your primary attention and focus on their needs. In the end, the minor inconvenience of responding to a new voice mail pales in comparison to the growing goodwill now established with your future customers and friends.

>Business Loan Alternatives

Posted by nick_niesen on October 29th, 2010


After weeks of answering questions, providing endless financial statements and playing the ?hurry up and wait? game you find out that your banker is unwilling to give you a business loan.


Now what? Do you go to another bank and try again? Possibly. But most banks have similar lending criteria. If you did not qualify for a loan at one bank, your chances are not good that you will qualify for a loan at another place. Though it doesn?t hurt to try.


However, there are other financing products that are easy to obtain ? and in some instances ? work better than a business loan. Here is a very simple quiz:


Does your business:


1. Have commercial customers?


2. Invoice at least $10 Donte Jackson Game Jersey ,000 a month?


Is your biggest challenge:


1. Waiting up to 60 days to get paid by clients?


2. Paying suppliers?


3. Meeting payroll?


If this describes you, then you could be a good candidate for either factoring or purchase order financing. As opposed to bank loans, these two financial alternatives are easy to qualify for. The biggest requirement is that you do business with strong commercial customers, such as big companies or the government.
