Publisher's Summary

Selected by HubSpot as one of the top 20 sales books of all time

No matter how much repeat business you get from loyal customers, the lifeblood of your business is a constant flow of new accounts. Whether you're a sales rep, sales manager, or a professional services executive, if you are expected to bring in new business, you need a proven formula for prospecting, developing, and closing deals. New Sales. Simplified. is the answer. You'll learn how to:

  • Identify a strategic, finite, workable list of genuine prospects
  • Draft a compelling, customer-focused "sales story"
  • Perfect the proactive telephone call to get face-to-face with more prospects
  • Use email, voicemail, and social media to your advantage
  • Overcome - even prevent - every buyer's anti-salesperson reflex
  • Build rapport, because people buy from people they like and trust
  • Prepare for and structure a winning sales call
  • Stop presenting and start dialoguing with buyers
  • Make time in your calendar for business development activities
  • And much more

Packed with examples and anecdotes, New Sales. Simplified. balances a blunt (and often funny) look at what most salespeople and executives do wrong with an easy-to-follow plan for ramping up new business starting today.

    Story
    "Actionable, practical, hard-won, experience shared"

    This is a guy who's feet are on the ground. He obviously has been there.

    This is a focus on the basics. The theory behind what makes new business happen and the things to do to implement a workable strategy.

    So many sales trainers want to say "sales has changed...." and it has, as the author acknowledges. Then they try to reinvent the wheel. But, people are people. Business is business and the basics don't change that fast.

    This book does a great job of accepting the not-alway-pretty reality of the sales world and wresting a few really deserving babies (sales basics) from the bathwater of the old school high-pressure selling.

    Really, this is just what I was looking for.

    I think anyone who wants to nail the process of opening new accounts would have something to learn. I highly recommend it.

    "Solid solid sales training"

    Mike Weinberg wrote in my opinion one of the best sales books sense zig Ziglar. This has been my Bible creating a sales playbook from the ground up at a new company. If you have a question and sales turn to this book and you will find the answer.

    Where does New Sales. Simplified. rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    "Learn from the best!"
    If you could sum up New Sales. Simplified. in three words, what would they be?

    Learn. Apply. Succeed.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This book is a 'how to' guide to sales success by helping our clients and customers get what they want and need.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The chapter on making pro-active phone calls.


    Any additional comments?

    If you buy the audio version I strongly suggest buying the book too. It's easier finding key points you want to review in the hard copy than the audio book.

    "SAVE YOUR MONEY DONT BUY THIS "

    This book is full of of old ideas that will help if your new to sales. But if you have been in sales more than 3 months or if you have ever read any other sales book then this is a waste of time. Save your money.
    Not forgetting the paid for advert chapter on South West Airlines that will make you think why did I pay for this when it is just an advert.

    "I cringed when Mike described the mistakes I have made"

    What a brilliant book on sales. I've been in sales (admittedly as a key account manager) for a long time. I'm a recent convert to the theory that you shouldn't puke on your customers (resist the temptation to deliver a boring PowerPoint) but there is a whole lot more practical advice that Mike gives, with great examples.

    Thoroughly recommended for anyone who has to sell for a living. I will be buying copies for my team.

    "An amazing practical analysis of the sales process"

    This book wonderfully narrated by Mike goes into such clear analysis of the sales process chapter by chapter with personal stories that support his thought process. This is a must listen for any sales person no matter where they are on their journey. Listen and then listen again.
