My Top Sales Tips And Small Business Advice.

To help with business sales plans and small business growth - I have put together my top recommendations to help any new start up, modern day entrepreneur, business owner and sales professional - learn the key facts to success.


  • Remember not everyone will buy from you. Know when to move on to the next prospect – but not too quickly.
  • Remember a sale is only truly done when the buyer is happy, and you have been paid.
  • There is no such thing as an elevator for success, you must be willing to take the stairs and put in the work required for your success.
  • A customer-centric approach can add value to a company by enabling it to differentiate itself from competitors.
  • Sell to your existing customers first – it is quicker, easier and more cost effective.
  • To create a profitable sales funnel or sales pitch it is not about universal appeal. Instead, it's all about highly targeted and filtered and specific appeal.
  • Consider your set up – can I supply a supermarket chain yet, or am I better starting smaller?
  • Bad advice like “Always be closing” is outdated – try thinking about how you can help solve your customer’s needs and problems.
  • Beware of bad selling advice on the internet – everyone has an opinion, find one that works for you.
  • Ensure good quality and clear pictures of your product and service are used on all marketing and media – this may sound obvious – but it’s unreal the amount of times you see poor quality photos or badly staged images used for promotion.
  • Align your brand with your top targeted customers first.
  • People buy people, so stay professional at all times, you never know who is watching or listening in.
  • Read up – keep up to date with your industry news.
  • Salespeople who plan their day around prospecting are, by and large, successful salespeople. So, to make sales you need to find more customers, and that must be your number one priority.
  • About 90 percent of the things we worry about never happen, and 5 percent of the things we worry about are things that we can’t do anything about.
  • Successful salespeople develop a work routine and a work ethic that allows them to execute the things they need to do each and every day.
