first_img Essential Reading! Get my first book: The Only Sale Guide You’ll Ever Need “The USA Today bestseller by the star sales speaker and author of The Sales Blog that reveals how all salespeople can attain huge sales success through strategies backed by extensive research and experience.” Buy Now It starts with an email. Well, not really an email from you, but an email from marketing made to look like it was from you. That email ended up in a spam filter, and your prospective client deleted it, along with a few more that looked a lot like it. This is the starting point of the experience, and it offers no real chance for the establishing of a relationship.It continues with another email. Like the email before it, there are links, the clicking of which is alleged to provide an indication of honest to goodness interest in you and your company. So far, the experience hasn’t been too great for you or your prospective client.In an act of desperation, you call your prospective client, and you leave a message asking them to call you back and leaving your phone number. For some reason, you have decided to give the task of connecting with you to the person you are actually trying to sell. No one understands why they should have to return a salesperson’s call, and your client, unmoved, deletes your voice mail.Back to email. Nothing. Back to voice mail. Nothing. Then, an answered telephone. Yes!You ask your prospective client if you can stop by, introduce yourself, and share all the ways that your company helps their clients, along with the story about how they hung both the Sun and the Moon in the sky. Your prospective client, with the slightest bit of interest, agrees to a meeting.You show up prepared. You have your slide deck, and you have your talking points. You also have questions you intend to use to elicit your prospective client’s needs. She says, “Tell me a little about you and your company.” You launch PowerPoint, and you begin at the beginning, history, buildings, locations, logos . . . your client, stifling a yawn, feigns interest. Then, you ask, “So, what keeps you up at night?”Fortunately, your prospective client has real issues, and she hopes you can help. So she lays out all of her challenges. Lacking an SME, you take meticulous notes, promising to get back to your prospective client with some answers, and you promise to schedule an appointment to bring someone with you to your next meeting. Your client asks, “Can you send me a proposal and some pricing?” You, anxiously agree.You send the pricing and the proposal by email, as requested. Your client gives it a very quick glance, and she leaves it in her inbox. She’s not sure she likes it. She’s not sure she doesn’t like it. She doesn’t know if she wants to show it to the rest of her team, or the leadership team who would need to approve any decision to buy from you.So, not hearing anything, you take the bold move of sending an email to follow up.This is a cautionary tale. There are good reasons for you to control the sales process, and chief among them is the buyer’s experience buying from you.last_img read more

first_imgThe Delhi High Court on Tuesday reserved its order on the transit anticipatory bail plea of Honeypreet Insan, the adopted daughter of jailed Dera Sacha Dauda chief Ram Rahim, saying the “easiest way out” for her would be to surrender.Justice Sangita Dhingra Sehgal, after hearing arguments on behalf of Honeypreet and the police of Delhi and Haryana, said she would pass an order on it.The order is likely to be pronounced later on Tuesday.“The easiest way out for you would be to surrender,” the court observed.Honeypreet has been on the run since the conviction of Ram Rahim in two rape cases. She is facing a case of sedition for allegedly inciting violence in Haryana after the Dera chief’s conviction.Transit anticipatory bail plea is meant to seek protection against arrest during transit. In this case, Honeypreet is seeking bail for her transit from Delhi to Haryana to join the investigation in the sedition case.“A ploy to do ‘forum shopping’.”During the hearing, the Haryana police opposed the filing of her plea in the Delhi High Court, saying it was “a ploy to do ‘forum shopping’.”The Delhi Police also alleged that Honeypreet should have approached the Punjab and Haryana High Court, rather moving the Delhi High Court.The police of Delhi and Haryana opposed her plea for anticipatory bail for three weeks on the ground that the court of competent jurisdiction would be in Haryana.Honeypreet’s lawyer contended that her life was in danger in Haryana and that is why she has moved Delhi High Court seeking protection from arrest till she moves a court in the neighbouring State. The lawyer said she would join the probe if she was protected.last_img read more

first_imgIndia Today Mind Rocks Youth Summit 2012.With an investment of hundreds of crores and years of hard work, the London Olympics were always going to be a watershed event for Indian sport.While some of the heralded names fell by the wayside, there were others who led the way as India reaped its largest medal haul at the grandest sporting stage of the world.At the end of the extravaganza, six athletes engraved their names in the annals of history and became inspirations for the millions of youth in the country.Sushil Kumar, Vijay Kumar, Yogeshwar Dutt, MC Mary Kom, Gagan Narang and Saina Nehwal were already champions in their respective fields but their success at the London Games have made them household names with a large number of youngsters ready to follow in their footsteps.Five of these athletes will be in the Capital on Friday at the India Today Mind Rocks Youth Summit 2012 to share the experiences of their incredible journeys, which saw their dreams turn into reality.Sushil comes from a humble background and excels in a sport that not many parents would like their children to take up. But the humble grappler from Baprola village in the Capital changed the perception after his bronze medal at the Beijing Olympics four years ago.Not one to rest on his laurels and spend the rest of his life reaping the benefits of his Beijing feat, Sushil kept working hard and went a step further in London to become the only Indian athlete to win two individual Olympic medals.advertisementYogeshwar, who grew up with Sushil and trained under the same coach, had a lot of experience but an Olympic medal always eluded him. Things changed dramatically for Yogeshwar in London where he fought three bouts in a mere 45 minutes to win a bronze for the country.Boxing was always thought to be a male-dominated sport until MC Mary Kom arrived on the scene. Her is one of the most inspiring stories as she has fought all the way to win medals at every level.It was for the first time that women’s boxing was introduced at the Olympics and that gave the five-time world champion an opportunity to add another feather in her cap.Mary comes from Manipur, which is mostly in the news for the wrong reasons. But her bronze medal will go a long way in changing the perception of the state and women’s boxing in general.The mother of twin boys had to increase her weight to be eligible to compete at the Olympics as her preferred category (48kg) wasn’t part of the London Games. Not only did she manage to qualify for the Olympics in a higher weight category (51kg), but also returned home with a bronze medal.Shooters were always India’s best bet for medals in London and Gagan Narang opened the country’s account in the 10m air rifle event. It was one medal that the ace shooter was craving for years, having been on the podium at every other stage.Before the Olympics, armyman Vijay Kumar had won medals at the Delhi Commonwealth Games and the Guangzhou Asiad. It was now time to shine on the biggest stage of them all.The Indian finished second in the 25m rapid fire pistol event to eventual gold medallist Leuris Pupo of Cuba but Vijay showed that “hard work always pays off”.last_img read more

first_imgUsain Bolt’s coach is convinced the Jamaican phenomenon can once again put aside injury concerns and mediocre form to maintain his grip on the major sprint titles at this month’s world championship.The 28-year-old returns to the Bird’s Nest stadium where he first stunned the world at the 2008 Olympics for the Aug 22-30 championships, bidding to retain his 100 and 200 metres titles.Bolt is certainly short of competitive races and struggled for times this season until he twice clocked 9.87 seconds in the 100 metres in London late last month.His coach Glen Mills, though, believes the Olympic champion and world record holder in both sprints will be able to hit his straps when it matters.”The last two years have been very challenging for both Usain and myself,” Mills told Reuters.”Unfortunately, he has had a number of different injuries to overcome which have affected his training and the number of competitions he has been able to compete in.”But Bolt is a champion who knows nothing but excellence when performing on the world stage.”American Justin Gatlin enters Beijing in better form than the Jamaican with world leading marks of 9.74 and 19.57 seconds as he seeks to win his second world sprint double since first doing so in Helsinki in 2005. In seven head-to-head clashes over 100 metres, Bolt has beaten Gatlin six times.Bolt’s record at major meetings since he wrote his name into track history by winning the 100 and 200 metres in world record times at the Beijing Olympics is quite extraordinary.Only a false start in the 100m four years ago in Daegu has prevented him from sweeping the sprint titles at the 2009, 2011 and 2013 world championships and London Olympics.advertisementBolt, who turns 29 the day before the world championships open, underwent surgery on his left foot in 2014 which restricted him to run only a few 100m races as well as the 4×100 relay at the Commonwealth Games, where Jamaica won gold.This season, a blocked sacroiliac joint which restricted his movement and placed pressure on his knee and ankle has affected his preparations for Beijing and forced him to withdraw from the Paris and Lausanne Diamond League meets.”We have been making a number of changes on the way he trains and have been getting results,” said Mills. “However, I would have wanted him to have had more races.”Bolt’s season best marks of 9.87 and 20.13 are only ranked sixth and 19th respectively in the world this year and well shy of the records of 9.58 and 19.19 he set at the 2009 world championships.Like Mills, though, his agent Ricky Simms is confident Bolt can outdo all challengers once again.”Everyone knows that Usain shows up when it comes to championships,” he told Reuters by phone.”He’s been in this situation before, he’s had a few races where it didn’t go to plan and then at the Championships he always delivers, so I would say I’m extremely confident in Usain’s ability.”Mills, who also guided Yohan Blake (2011) and Kim Collins (2003) of St. Kitts and Nevis to 100m world titles, has now been coaching Bolt for a decade and said the lean times made the successes all the more enjoyable.”It certainly would mean a great dealt to me to continue to pilot his successes and more so in these difficult years.”last_img read more
