While the quantity of the business sales leads is high on the list of priorities, the quality is probably the top one. For this reason, the participants developed scores in order to measure what aspects depict the quality of business sales leads.

Are you one the fans who watched TNT's Leverage Timothy Hutton, AKA Nick, explain selling to America Wednesday night? I have a confession to make. I enjoy watching TNT's Leverage. USA's Burn Notice, too. Sure, at their core they are sometimes clever, and sometimes not so clever remakes of favorite TV shows from my childhood like The Saint, Mission Impossible, and It Takes a Thief. But I get a lot more out of these shows than the networks probably intend. My family will tell you that mixed into the storyline that includes drama, comedy, action and special effects that I see sales and selling lessons, buying patterns and buyer behavior. I never walk away from watching a Leverage or Burn Notice episode without gleaning some new insight or picking up a refresher on how to figure out what is important to the buyer and how to present and close the deal. Forgive me here for a moment- in these television shows the buyer is the person the good guys are attempting to take a specific action. Last night, the Leverage mastermind Nick explained NLP- NeuroLinguistic Programming- to an unsuspecting television audience. He did it bluntly, which, of course, goes against the premise of NLP. Where the NLP comes in is in watching the mark, the character the Leverage team is targeting for retribution. You see, as the character Nick is explaining "selling" to the thief Parker, we are watching the mark react to the influences to which he is being exposed. Watching the mark reactchristian louboutin on sale while the good guy explains NLP is the NLP within the message. So, how can we apply this to your selling strategy? After all, your buyer isn't a bad guy. He's the lifeblood of your business. Forget for minute that the bad guys in these shows are bad guys. And, forget for a minute that the good guys are conning the bad guys.
