COVID19 "Remote Working" Day Seventy Five of Sales

It seems every morning I'm putting in a couple of hours doing just enough trying to move some these net new deals forward. I heard from one today with a question and the net new there was no response. I'll send out another email in the AM wishing a happy 4th of July and see if I get a response. Most deals will happen on the clients timeline and not ours. Seems with COVID19 that clients timelines are dragging out more than normal. I lost a deal today, thinking back it was the first deal I...

COVID19 "Remote Working" Day Seventy Four of Sales

Well another blog I did't think I was going to write this evening. Late in day I was able to catch a news interview with our Governor. This is the same Governor that shut down indoor dining the day before it was scheduled to open yesterday. He puts the blame on other states that are seeing infections increasing because those states have opened indoor dining. Thus he elected to shut it down. He also based the decision on activities from the last weekend where many bars were packed and peeps...

COVID19 "Remote Working" Day Seventy Three of Sales

When I posted a blog on Friday of last week I had no intention of writing one today. My thoughts moving into this week was to post the most important press releases, answer some topics and take a much needed break from both jobs. That also meant no Monday night email update. As sales people are we every really on vacation? Before email and the internet vacations were easier and that's because we really weren't connected like we are today. I can still remember when vacations were real...

COVID19 "Remote Working" Day Seventy One of Sales

It was rise and shine at 5AM today! I'm getting to like this early gig and getting more time to spend outside. Since I was up so early I made it the office a little before 7AM today.

Since the order is for three MPF's and two locations I spent about two hours developing those docs. Normally I would just send the order docs, however the decision maker also...

COVID19 "Remote Working" Day Sixty Nine of Sales

Today marked the last day of the month and the last day of the and quarter for me. Nothing changed from yesterday, however I did get a tad bit exciting when I had a call from my net new prospect for a call meeting as soon as possible. Of course I dropped everything and jumped on the call. That call was more about understanding the two proposals so that he could present to his team later today. Keeping my toes and fingers crossed that this may happen tomorrow or the end of this week. We had a...
