Looks Matter Selling

Selling: it’s as much what you do in front of people, and how, and where, as it is what you say.

Your posture, your energy, how fit you are, your focus, the expression on your face, your hand gestures, your product demonstrations, your showmanship, your hair, your clothes, your watch, your shoes.

Not only that, but how clean and organized your workspace is, the books on your shelf, the artwork on your wall, the pen you sign your name with, the quality of the landscaping out front, what kind of car you drive.

Same thing goes for your business partners, your coworkers, your contractors.  They’re getting judged too.  And that factors in, like it or not.

“We’re our own worst enemy.  You doubt yourself more than anybody else ever will.  If you can get past that, you can be successful.”

“It’s natural to have doubts.  But hit pause before you out-and-out quit.”

Shania Twain

Shania Twain quotes: country music megastar’s thoughts on money, music, self-expression, fulfillment, and more.

“Find your self-esteem and be forever free to dream.”

“It’s important to give it all you have while you have the chance.”

“I deeply believe that everything is relative.  We need the bad to appreciate the good, and vice versa.  We need something unexpected to happen in order for us to realize that everything was expected.  It’s our relation to those things that we are able to decide how we feel and the level of intensity of those feelings.  Such is relativity.”

“You have to set your own boundaries.  We all do.  You have to self-check.  At the same time, the transparency is liberating.  It is so much easier than screening every little thing you do and say.  There’s got to be some fluidity to self-expression without constantly editing things.  The older I get, the more confident I feel in that.  The filters are just flung away.  Let’s face it, filters interrupt the flow of sincerity.”

Smart Old Man

If you don’t, nothing you say after that will matter much.  When I write copy or train sales peeps, I always have the number 11 in mind.  As in, say somethin’ sexy in 11 words or less, or assume everything else you say will be ignored.

(I got that number from Cashvertising, which said most selling sentences should be clear, simple, stated in 11 words or less.)


What will your prospect find sexy?  A discount?  News?  A big announcement?  A promise to remove pain or increase joy?  A story?

Elmer Wheeler

Don’t sell the steak, sell the sizzle.  You’ve heard it a million times.  But what’s it really mean?  Let’s take a look.

The saying comes from the late Elmer Wheeler, who was known as “America’s Greatest Salesman.”

And here’s what he meant by it:

It’s the sizzle that sells the steak, not the cow.  It’s waiters, not steers, that stroll through restaurants, delivering juicy steaks to hungry patrons.

And as they do, what happens?

Self Driving Danger

Have you noticed yourself being more and more on autopilot?  I have.  It’s like, if I’m not careful, I can go through an entire day without really thinking about anything.

Some examples:

My watch buzzes, reminding me to stand, move, even breathe!

I hop in the car, my phone guides me, turn-by-turn, to where I wanna go.  And the car?  Pretty much drives itself.  I mean, I can’t even change lanes without the seat shakin’ my right or left ass cheek, like: “You sure bro?”  Seriously.  Driving today requires almost no thought whatsoever.
