Five Top Tips For Identifying New Sales Leads

Whether we are in a new recession or slowly grinding our way to a brighter future, anyone who runs a business knows that they need to focus on two things right now. First they need to make sure they are managing their expenses prudently, ensuring that their costs match the demand they are seeing.

The Sale You Can't Close

We've all been there. After countless calls, meetings and an endless amount of work, you just can't get the customer to say "yes" and move forward. There can be hundreds of theories and ideas as to why this happens more times than we care to admit. Let's put all the theories aside and get to a solution you can use right now to determine if the customer is serious.
