Part 6 of 6 in Mastering the Sales Process & Learning how to Sell with Noah Cohen | EP39

Season 1, Ep. 39

Dream Job Ready Episode 39: Noah Cohen (Professional Sales Coach, Cohen Sales Academy).

Part 6 of 6 in our 'Mastering the Sales Process & Learning how to Sell with Noah Cohen' mini series.

Topic for this episode: Noah rounds off his training by taking host Dane Sharp through 'Presentation & Closing', 'Post Sell' and 'Asking for Referrals'.

Hello and thanks for joining me on Dream Job Ready. I'm your host, Dane Sharp, and I'm excited to bring you the finale of a special 6-part mini-series with professional sales coach, Noah Cohen, where we dive into and break down the sales process.

We've received some amazing feedback about the previous 5 episodes with Noah, so if you're just discovering this show or missed episodes 34, 35, 36, 37 and 38, please go back and give them a listen.

Noah has turned his sales training into a condensed and generalised take for our listening benefit. He's also provided some scripts, tip and communication templates here:

Topic: Presentation & Close.

Tip for Episode: At any point before this stage, if you can not proceed further, you are not to pitch or present. You must address their enquiry or concern and solve it before moving forward to the next step.

"[Name], Earlier you told me X was important to you. You also say the steps you've taken to fix it and the impact it has had on you. Have I missed something?

(If positive) share how your solution fixes their issue or provides to them what they need and ask when you can get started and close.

Topic: Post-sell and referral.

Tip for Episode: Deal with buyers' remorse.

"[Name], you mentioned that you wanted x but then after discussing it you were happy with what I suggested, Are you still ok to proceed?" This will allow the prospect to own their decision and reduce the chances of a cancelled sale, later.

Tip for Episode: How to ask for a referral:

"[Name], next time you talk to a friend, college family member or even a neighbour and they mention they need (product or service), would you feel comfortable introducing us?"

Yes, sure...

"Great, when that happens please take out your phone and text me their name and number, and I will get in touch. Is that ok?"

No...

"Not a problem at all [name], what do I need to do for you to feel comfortable?"

Here's the agenda for our six episodes:

  • Introducing the Sales Process & Training (EP34)
  • Rapport & Trust (EP35)
  • Setting an Agenda (EP36)
  • Discovery Funnel, Needs Analysis & Questioning (EP37)
  • Uncovering a Prospect's Budget & Understanding their Decision Making Process (EP38)
  • Closing the Sale / Getting a Decision / After the Sale (this one!)

Noah offers free online sales training on his website www.cohentraininginstitute.com.au

I worked with Noah at Groupon and he's had experience training and coaching sales consultants across retail, finance, insurance and HR. Regardless of your role, you're going to benefit from the advice he shares.

3 reasons why my new job is my dream job with Dane Sharp & Josh Wilson | Dream Job Ready EP46

Season 2, Ep. 46
Hi, I'm Dane Sharp - host of Dream Job Ready. I'm also an excited, new starter this week, announcing I've landed a new dream job as Chief Marketing Officer at tech startup, togetherAI.I've been fortunate to work for some amazing companies (Rip Curl, Under Armour, eBay, McDonald's) and awesome people in my career, but this new endeavour is one worth sharing and celebrating.Unfortunately, youth mental health is deteriorating as children are “on device” at increasingly younger ages with an alarming correlation in increased rates of anxiety, depression, cyber-predatory and cyber-bullying. 1 in 5 young people will be socially excluded, threatened or abused online this year. 1 in 4are at clinical risk of serious mental illness but the majority are reluctant to seek help.Families often lack the awareness, knowledge and communication skills necessary to navigate complex scenarios and build resilient mental health and wellbeing on the journey to adulthood. Over 70% of parents feel that they struggle to communicate with their children.As a new parent, these stats and the realities at large about family mental health shocked me. When I learned of togetherAI's focus and mission, I couldn't help but want to be a part of its future.I've known togetherAI Founder and CEO, Josh Wilson, for more than 6 years, working together briefly when he was starting his first business venture, StatEdge. Today, I'm happy to be working with him and a team of passionate peers to bring togetherAI to life.I invited Josh on to the show for this episode and asked him to prepare 3 reasons why his new job is a dream job. The three?ImpactAlignmentTeam & PeopleWe discuss each in the episode.If you want this episode to be a deeper level of personal, check out the video version on YouTube.You can also connect with Dream Job Ready via our Socials:- YouTube / Search 'Dream Job Ready'- LinkedIn / https://www.linkedin.com/company/dreamjobready- Facebook / @dreamjobready- Instagram / @dreamjobready- Twitter / @dreamjobready We welcome your feedback and questions via Email dreamjobreadypodcast@gmail.comAnd if you'd like to financially support this podcast series, please make a contribution via https://supporter.acast.com/dream-job-ready-1 Music: ‘Funky Sunday’ composed and performed by Mark Matthews.

Business owner, C7 quadriplegic, author and one heck of an inspiration - Darren Longbottom chats with Dane Sharp about life and leadership in a wheelchair | Dream Job Ready EP45

Season 2, Ep. 45
Business owner, C7 quadriplegic, author and one heck of an inspiration - Darren Longbottom (Owner of Zink Surf) chats with Dane Sharp about life and leadership in a wheelchair | Dream Job Ready EP45Ready to be inspired, shocked, moved and motivated in one short interview?Darren 'Daz' Longbottom was born into the surfing industry. Growing up on the beach in Cronulla, Australia, he and his brother witnessed surf industry and business success first hand via their father, who was a surfboard manufacturing pioneer in the 70s and 80s. Coming of working age, it didn’t take Daz long to forge his own identity in the surf industry and business world, eventually becoming the owner of a surf shop in Kiama on NSW's south coast. The business was successful and enabled Daz to live a happy, easy-going and casual life, but all that was rocked in a split second by a freak surfing accident in the remote region of Mentawais, North Sumatra.The freak surfing accident broke Darren's neck and resulted in instant paralysis. Alone in the water and semi-unconscious, Daz fought to stay alive until he was rescued by his friends, returned to the boat and stabilized (by getting strapped to a surfboard). But that’s just the beginning... What follows is a 25+ hour ordeal (I stress the world ordeal) returning to the mainland and reaching the safety of a hospital... You're likely trying to guess or imagine what went wrong and what happened... Think worse and times it by x 2...Today, Daz still runs his successful surf store in Kiama, but now does it from a wheelchair because of his C7 quadriplegia and spinal cord injury. His co-authored book Beyond the Break explains his unbelievable, life-or-deathescape to safety in impeccable detail and reading the book inspired me to interview Darren for Dream Job Ready. For it's not simply the inspiration, motivation or advice on mindset he shares, but the importance, reliance, and motivation he put on work, his job, and on his company, even in the hardest times of his recovery. His 'dream job' really meant (and continues to mean) something to him, personally and deep, and there's a beauty in that which I hoped he would share in this interview. He does.Be present for this episode, because it's worth it. Not because Daz is a quadriplegic and in a wheelchair, but because he shares thoughtful, truthful and humble leadership and business ownership insights and advice of the likes we all need to hear before we clock in or clock out of work for the day.Please note, I visited Darren at his home in Kiama for the interview (Covid-19 safe) and we had a small sound issue with my microphone. No biggie, you'll make out and understand everything I say, but I'm just calling out that the audio is not as crystal as it normally is or as Darren's microphone audio is, which is perfect.If you want this episode to be a deeper level of personal, check out the video version on YouTube.You can also connect with Dream Job Ready via our Socials:- YouTube / Search 'Dream Job Ready'- LinkedIn / https://www.linkedin.com/company/dreamjobready- Facebook / @dreamjobready- Instagram / @dreamjobready- Twitter / @dreamjobready We welcome your feedback and questions via Email dreamjobreadypodcast@gmail.comAnd if you'd like to financially support this podcast series, please make a contribution via https://supporter.acast.com/dream-job-ready-1 Music: ‘Funky Sunday’ composed and performed by Mark Matthews.
