Extraordinary Selling Assessment
Problems in selling appear to be from lack of understanding of what to do and not do in the selling process. But this is not the whole story. Of course it is important to know what to do and what not to do but even when people know what to do sometimes they still have trouble doing it effectively.
Problems in selling are usually caused by having fears that may either be obvious or they may be so familiar and they may have been with you so long that you don’t realize that your subliminal fears sabotaged your sales process and you just can’t see why it didn’t go well.
This assessment is designed to help determine to what extent your selling process is being influenced by hidden fears. It will give us a way to determine what to do to fully resolve the fears that the basis of your selling challenges. They you can take advantage of the new and highly effective tools of IGO to get these inner barriers out of the way. This will skyrocket your sales effectiveness. You’ll be able to be much more present, really hear what your client or prospect truly wants (it’s often not your product or service by the way but you can get the sale if you really help them get what they truly want).
So take the assessment. Then use some of the great new resources of IGO to remove the fears and habits that are undermining your best efforts to sell well. Then retake the assessment and see how much change has occurred.
In addition, note the level of your sales results now and then make note of the new level of successful selling that you achieve after using the IGO resources. Most people are amazed at the difference that this makes in their selling and in their life.
Be ruthlessly honest with yourself and rate yourself from 0 to 10 for the following statements.
0 = not at all
10 = most or all of the time
