Do you hate, feel stuck or nervous about sales? Do you feel really uncomfortable selling or feel like you’re being pushy? Then I've got you, girl, because all this week, we’re talking about How To Sell Without Feeling Salesy!
Listen, I get it. You are a genuine, authentic person who cares about her relationships and isn’t just going to spam everyone she knows with an invitation to buy from her. You don’t want to be one of THOSE people, so to avoid being one of them, you actually don’t sell at all--or very rarely. Am I right?
Here’s one reason you're not selling:
Because your definition of "sales" is keeping you stuck.
You’re feeling like sales=the old school used car salesman, where someone is pressuring/manipulating/selling you something you don’t want/need, and that feels sleazy and slimy. But actually, what you’re selling is different!
The very fact that you care, that you’re here, reading this, means that it is. You have something to offer that could change peoples' lives, right? You love it; it’s worked for you!
But you have this internal conflict that sets you up to feel like if you sell, you'll be like that used car salesman, so you stop yourself, then you don’t make any money. Then what might happen if you don't get clear about this is that you don’t get to help any people, you have a revenue problem, you think it’s something wrong with you or your service and then...you go out of business.
Here's what it boils down to: It’s an INSIDE thing. This is where to go first. People can FEEL if you’re not confident or avoiding trying to sell.
You must sell to be in business. You MUST. If you’re not open to learning how to sell in a way that feels good to you, you should not be in business, because the truth is, you’re not in business if you’re not making sales! You have a hobby. And that’s ok if that’s what you want, but I think you want more than that, which is why you’re here, yes?
I'm here to help. I'm here to tell you that there IS a way to sell that feels good and authentic and in no way pressured or stressful. The first step toward that is to get aware of what has been going on, so that you can move forward from an empowered place.
SO. I know that's a LOT of tough love for you on a Monday morning, but if this feels true for you, I'd love for you to share below, or, if you've been there and have moved past this, I'd love for you to share your best tip on how to do so!!!
