Selling in Tough Times: Secrets to Selling When No One Is Buying

Tom Hopkins, Author . Business Plus $21.99 (250p) ISBN 978-0-446-54814-4

Hopkins (How to Master the Art of Selling ) lobbies for a return to basics to maximize sales in an economic downturn. He starts from the very beginning, defining what a selling career entails and detailing the different types of salespeople. He encourages readers to step back and reevaluate their positions in the economy, and to make a plan for when the climate improves. The first step is to save existing business by going the extra mile, making human contact, and initiating loyalty-building campaigns. Hopkins shows how to quickly tell if a client is right for you, reduce sales resistance, woo clients from the competition, and cut costs while continuing to appear successful. Each chapter ends with a short summary to help extract and reinforce key ideas. Part self-help book, part motivational guide, this book provides valuable advice for selling professionals struggling in the current economy as well anyone hoping to emerge from the recession primed for growth.
