Three Critical Sales Months Coming - Short Attention Span Sales Tip
Let’s go over the facts:
- Next Monday is Labor Day
- The selling cycle is 3 to 6 months
- Roughly 3 months from now is Thanksgiving
- This is a finite amount of time and if you make a daily sales activity commitment and then meet that goal regularly, the benefit will come in December and afterward
If all that is true, and it is, then here once again is the sales tip that I’ve delivered for the last 10 years:
“The three most important selling months of the year are September, October, November. What you do or what you don’t do in this roughly 90-day period will determine how your year ends and how your Q1 of the new year begins.”
Gang, my recommendation is that you choose a minimum number of calls to make every single day starting the day after Labor Day. Hit it consistently. Exceed it if you can. Don’t worry about the results and don’t worry about whether or not your voicemail messages go unreturned. Focus exclusively and intently on your sales activity. Believe that you are making the needle move.
And trust me: These actions will result in more and better appointments and sales but you will not see any impact until after this 90-day time period has ended.
I make this statement every year and every year it is true. Every year I hear from someone in January or February who tells me how amazing their sales numbers are and how they could tie it all back to this sales tip.
Ignore this one at your own peril. Take advantage of it and you will be rewarded.
