Art, Love it! Great perspective, a true professional. We can't bat 1.000 though it is a nice mindset. Being able to debrief, self-evaluate and learn how to improve is the key. The office environment we sell into as copier reps is rapidly changing and evolving. You may have lost the hardware sale but may look what you gained. Play your "sales cards" right and this can be parlayed into more revenue and more profit. Great job!

He said the church board laid the proposals out and took the cheapest one. I will log everything in my CRM and follow up in 5 years. This is the second time I've lost the deal but I keep going back. I wished him luck and went on...

The 6 Best Selling Points For Backup and Disaster Recovery Software

Art Post ·
By Frank Colletti , Vice President of Sales, N-able by SolarWinds We’ve all heard the stats: 90 percent of businesses losing data from a disaster are forced to shut down within two years. The survival rate for companies without a disaster recovery plan is less than 10 percent. More than 50 percent of claimants never recoup the losses incurred by a disaster.

Losing is the Key to Winning!

Special thanx to Larry and Jason who gave me a few ideas with this next blog! We hate to lose right? Nothing grinds my gears more, than losing a prospect. I expect that I should be able to secure an order from all of my prospects. I expect to bat 1.000, however the reality is far from that. I definitely lose more deals than I win. In fact, I lose about 65% of the time. Is losing 65% of the time a bad thing? I don't think so, because I know that every lost deal moves me close a to obtaining...
