Here are a few key secrets we talked about in this episode:
- Michelle introduces Travis Chambers.
- Travis shares about his business making high-end video sales funnels.
- His first major rejection was from Ring doorbells – they were uncertain that he could deliver what he claimed!
- He got the meeting because his team documented behind the scenes of everything they did, and word of mouth about their offerings began to spread.
- Travis took that rejection to heart. After the first few days of disappointment he looked at the feedback to see how he could make his business better as a result.
- Other campaigns that Travis ran saw results, so he created case studies of what their company could do to share with future clients.
- When going through the roller coaster of rejection, Travis and his team looked beyond their frustrations to learn.
- One of the most frustrating things that Travis would hear was not NO – it was the “not NO’s” where clients wouldn’t say NO, but they also never said YES.
- When working with high price offerings, it really takes a lot of trust building as part of the sales process, including some non-sales events. Show potential clients you are in it for the long haul!
- Some clients push back and don’t say YES immediately because they want to test your commitment to their project.
- “Sometimes the most frustrating sales are going to be your biggest ones. And I think it’s just because there’s a certain amount of element of trust and I think they really just wanted to see how invested we were.” ~ Travis Chambers
- Your time spent with your clients before a YES or NO is not wasted, because you never know who they could even refer your way.
- Never count on a sale until the money is in the bank! Sometimes you think that you have closed the deal and the client backs out for whatever reason.
- “You’ve got to keep the hope and you have to give every person you pitch the benefit of the doubt because you just never know.” ~ Travis Chambers
- “You just have to persevere with your client because we’re like servants; we are serving people and we need to act as servants. We need to have that type of mindset.”
- “Optimism, positivity, and hope are a sales person’s best friends and I spent so much time worrying and having anxiety about whether or not things were going to work out. And the truth is, they’re either going to or not.” ~ Travis Chambers
- Travis shares one thing that he would share with his younger self.
