Less paper and more email.

Letterhead is hard to find these days. A client of mine, IBM, hunted to send a testament epistle about a sales colloquium I gave. My associate couldn't find letterhead.

Less individual presentations and more technology.

Let your prospects talk themselves into purchasing and stop interrupting them. Give the irregular at the appointed time and positive nod to aid their rant. Good sales ancestors sell products. Great sales professionals solve problems.

Less grounding and more action.

More salespeople fail while perfecting their accost in its place of essentially assembly contacts. Look. Over-preparing makes you sound mechanical and impersonal anyway. It's a procrastinator's prop and an apology for those in fear of rejection. Get on the phone and be present at networking measures now. Convalesce on the fly. Don't worry. We're all human and commonly kind.

Enough said. Time to sell.
