Introverted salespeople seems like a typo. Taking a deeper dive, the fact is that introverts have a special set of innate skills comparable to superpowers that can be leveraged to not only compete with but greatly surpass extroverts in a sales setting.
On this episode, we bring you the Founder of Rapid Growth Coach, Matthew Pollard. We immediately knew this had to be a 2 part series and couldn't be more excited to showcase this incredibly insightful topic of introverted salespeople. We explore Matthew's first book, The Introverts Edge, that covers;
Set the Stage - Step 1: Trust an agenda
Mine for Gold - Step 2: Ask probing questions
Speak to the Right Person - Step 3: Qualification
Don’t sell - tell - Step 4: Story-based selling
Don’t argue—augment - Step 5: Dealing with objections
Take their temperature - Step 6: Trial close
Ask without asking - Step 7: Assume the sale
