Revenue Accelerator with Jennifer Levy Frye

Season 2022, Ep. 324

In this episode, our guest is Jennifer Frye. Jennifer has been in business development for her entire career, working with local and national clients of all sizes. After spending decades in business development, she knew there was a better way to approach sales than the traditional bro marketing tactics. Appreciated Asset Sales Accelerator Program offers businesses a unique consultative approach to contract them to set new business appointments with their prospect’s wish list.

Aligned Approach for Cold Calling

[01:47]

Jennifer says you have to come first from a heart of service. Provide a solution you believe in and know you can help your customer. You have to get specific as well. Many people are nervous about narrowing down their target market and their ideal prospects, but you’ll find that the more specific you get, the narrower you get, the better results.

Wrong Expectations about the Sales Efforts in a Business

[03:12]

Jennifer works with people who have had bad experiences within their own sales departments or external call center-type services. She doesn’t spend much time talking about what’s gone wrong in the past because she can’t compare what her client does with what she does. Jennifer created an entire paradigm shift within sales because it is within her heart of service and her focus on the solution that her clients can provide.

The Paradigm Shift

[05:05]

In the paradigm shift, you must come from the angle of wanting to educate people. Offer a solution that you know that they need to know about. Doing that makes the entire energy shift around what you are messaging. At the end of the day, you don’t have to volley with someone. You don’t have to argue with someone. If you are arguing with someone, it’s probably not the right energy fit for you for long-term relationships.

Healing the Wound

[07:50]

You have to get specific and direct on what your value proposition is. Be dialed in on that and not just in general terms. But with some key metrics and some KPIs, you can show that you have success stories and percentages that you’d be able to increase revenue. Then figure out how you can monetize it because the prospect will be ready for the next step of that call once it is monetized.

Building the Pipeline

[10:04]

CRM is essential to any business. It is essential to have something to keep track of. It is really important to ensure you’re in front of the clients at the right time and that they know it’s not about your commission check this month or your sales or your numbers this month. You want to work with them in the timeline that makes sense for them, and you’ll be there. Sales is not a short-term strategy. You have to continue to do the activity and plant the seeds over and over again.

How Jennifer Helps Business with Cold Calling

[13:17]

Jennifer works with people who are looking to grow and have a sales department in place but are not doing cold calling activities. Jennifer helps with giving her clients all the benefits of cold calling campaigns without anyone having to pick up the phone.


Jennifer’s Final Thoughts

[28:02]

Jennifer says that cold calling is like anything else. It’s a skill; if you are uncomfortable, it’s because you’re learning to grow. She encourages people to try it, especially business owners. Try to see what objections people are saying. See what people are saying so you can better train and prepare your team to want to go out and do the same.

Revenue Accelerator with Kachina Gosselin

Season 2021, Ep. 1108
In this episode of the Revenue Accelerator Podcast, we have invited Kachina Gosselin, an MIT graduate with a degree in aerospace. She is now coaching entrepreneurs, authors, and speakers to become elevated experts. Today, Kachina shares her thoughts about experts, what people should do to become one, and how to handle being one.Forgetting[01:28]The people we attract are good at what they do. And if you happen to be good at what you do, you forget what it's like to be a beginner.Knowing what to say and when[2:53]You don't have to have a Ph.D.; you don't have to have a book. You need to be a step ahead of your audience. They can be relatable and teach them what they need to know at the time.Authority[4:04]One of the things I like to talk about as an expert does have to have authority and authority isn't claimed. It's given, which means you can claim the expert title, but then people have to give you authority and say, I invite you to write that book or to be on that podcast that you can kind of put some weight behind that claim.Showing Vulnerability[12:14]I think there's something bonding with seeing somebody show humility and vulnerability, which makes it a little less intimidating for other people to do the same.External Perspective[14:36]I think that's where it helps to be in the community. And that's what mentorship is all about. Because of the courses we see, the easier it is to look at you from an external perspective and help you shine, and it's very hard to do that work yourself.Experts and Brilliant People[18:09]Right now, we are focusing a lot on our partnerships because we found that experts and brilliant people lift the people around them and have a constant stream of new introductions.Conclusion[19:48]The truth is if you can envision a future where your business works for you, you will get there. So, I want you to give yourself permission you can do less and earn more.Learn more about Kachina’s mentorship by visiting: www.elevatedexpertmentorship.com

Today, Emily shares some of her wisdom in content creation that have helped businesses build their brands and get noticed by potential customers.Content Writing[2:47]Being able to build a voice for clients to promote themselves is what content writing is all about. This includes managing their social media, blogs, and websites.Representing client's voice[6:03]The brain dump approach is taking all thoughts and then narrowing them down to the most important ones. Getting into a creative flow requires organization.Creating a process[9:09]Have a process and understand that sometimes you have to adapt that process. It helps you figure out how to get into that zone fast.Engagement[10:03]The most common mistake in marketing is when people create content that is solely focused on themselves. While talking about yourself is OK, keep in mind that the focus is on the person reading it, and consider their experience, what makes them go on social media and then stop.Generating leads[12:47]Maintain a strategic approach and focus on what your piece has to offer. Assume your company or brand were a book genre. What kind would it be? It encourages people to go the extra mile, resulting in content that they can share on their own social network.[15:32]It's all about the vibe or how I want people to feel going into the group as a group leader, making it a fantastic location to connect with other community members. Remember the initial few people in your community as your cheerleaders, encouraging you to keep going.[17:25]Get accurate information on what individuals are doing.Knowing your audience[19:07]Every group is unique.

People in the peer group share something they're struggling with or something that's challenging them. Then individuals express their opinions and weigh in.[30:31]There is no discernible difference between being a leader and being a member of your community. You only need to specify the boundaries and guidelines, and that's where leadership line stops to assist leaders in steering the ship.Discover Emily Aborn and her work by visiting: https://www.emilyaborn.com/
