Recognized on SalesHacker's "Best Sales Books: 30 Elite Picks to Step Up Your Sales Game" This book can be read in less than 45 minutes and covers the fundamentals for anyone getting started in sales or for anyone looking to brush up on their skills. There is no shortage of books or content today to help you learn about sales. In the past 30 years, there has been an incredible amount of research and growth in the sales profession to help modern sales professionals better serve their customers. However, after reading Rory Vaden's New York Times Bestseller "Take The Stairs" and learning that "95% of all books that are purchased are never completely read" and "70% of all books ever purchased are never even opened" we wanted to write a book that everyone could read and take action on immediately. This book is a step-by-step guide for the modern sales professional. We want to give you the framework, knowledge, and skills to fill a sales pipeline with highly qualified opportunities. It’s all practical advice - no cutesy stories, no rants, and no product pitches. There are really only two ways to fill a funnel: inbound leads or outbound prospecting. We focus this book exclusively on outbound prospecting, because it’s the half of the formula that an individual sales rep can control (that’s why so many sales job descriptions include the phrase “we’re looking for a hunter”).
