Ep. 174 – Selling Through Storytelling, Part 4

SIBP-Blog-NEW-2One of the most powerful aspects to using storytelling as a sales tool is how dramatically it can change prospect reaction during your initial consultations. Not only can it help you disqualify prospects more easily, but it can even help you nail down an agreement in principle about their need for your product or service. With the right kind of storytelling techniques, you can supercharge your sales results.

In part four of this ongoing series, host and business coach Tom Ryan revisits the core concepts of sales-focused storytelling, and explores the right way to gauge prospect reaction. Tom is joined by co-host and producer Jason Pyles.
