You can produce more opportunities with more prospects.
Everything has a place of beginning; this place in selling is prospecting. The more prospects you have, the more opportunities you have to succeed
What does it mean to increase your opportunities?
Prospect every day.
To keep your sales volume at a consistent level requires keeping your prospecting efforts effective every day. Every day you donít prospect weakens your opportunities for the next day.
Make prospecting a habit.
Just as success is a habit, so is prospecting. Making prospecting a daily habit is a key factor that contributes to sales success. When you form the habit of daily prospecting, you will be forming the habit of consistent sales.
Sales come from prospects.
Sales are created from prospects. If you donít have people to see, you donít have the main ingredient needed to create a sale. Effective sales professionals are masters at the art and science of prospecting.
Remember what George Dana Boardman and I have said about prospecting.
Sow an actóreap a habit; sow a habitóreap a character; sow a characteróreap a destiny.
Every day you donít prospect, the next day you will settle for a lesser degree of performance.
