If you are like the majority of independent teachers, I’m going to guess that you feel uncomfortable about the prospect of “sales calls” with clients.
Maybe you believe that as a teacher, trainer or coach, “selling” is something completely outside your wheelhouse, something you’d prefer NOT to do at all, if that were possible.
And yet, anyone who is engaged in selling a personal service needs to recognize that there IS a requirement to convert “interested prospects” into “paying clients” in order to have a sustainable business.
So, is there a way to approach sales that doesn’t make us feel “salesy” when interacting with clients?
Is there a way to discuss what we charge with clients in manner that doesn’t create a feeling of awkwardness?
Today, we are going to learn about how to tackle “selling” with a whole different mindset. We’ll discuss how to interact with clients using an approach that achieves our business objectives but doesn’t compromise our values or integrity.
