All companies, in good times and bad, have to fill their pipeline with good leads in order to acquire customers. Helping you prospect, how it works and what it means for your sales is a big part of how our secret can work for you.
Sales slumps have a way of self-perpetuating, with the lack of sales eroding our confidence and expectations of positive results, which in turn makes it even more difficult to return to the good form we have lost along the way. In sales the natural reaction is to fight off the pressure and panic with a quick fix, by ‘digging’ for more sales. Digging in places where you know the sales were, looking for that next pot of gold. This is what went wrong in the first place, stop ‘digging’ where the sales were, trying to work that same ‘claim’ endlessly and move on to new ground. If there is a trick to prospecting it’s doing the work to make it ‘work’. The only real way is to get back out there and start making the calls, working the leads. Initiating conversations with cold sales calls that now with what is going on in the world and the events where is your prospects mind at? these are still the ‘nuts and bolts’ that hold the process together. Opportunity is out there, your job is to find it, through prospecting.So if you are finding yourself in a slump right now, you are not alone. Don't feel bad we are all in the ring fighting the fight.

Pick up the phone and call that prospect who has always said no. You might be surprised.
Make the commitment. Invest your time, your energy and your emotion into actions that you can control.
So go on. Sit down and pick-up the phone. Go knock on some virtual doors. Send out some e-mails. Work your Linked-In, Twitter and Facebook social network and groups. Start asking for orders. Ask for referrals. Talk to any and everyone about what you do.
