How to Get More People to Buy What You’re Selling

How to Get More People to Buy What You're Selling

When I recently asked our community what their biggest business challenge is I got floods of:

Getting enough clients or customers.

Is making sales something that’s a sticky wicket for you?

If so, you’re in the right place.

I got a text last weekend from the guy who organized a fundraiser for our girl’s co-op daycare telling me that my husband Mike was hands down the MVP when it came to making sales for the weekend.

Unlike many people in our community, Mike LOVES to sell.

While I don’t love it as much as Mike, believe it or not, I kind of love it, too!

We’re kicking off our August Podcast Listening Adventure with an episode that’s going to help you make more sales, whether you’re brand-new in business and feel like sales is a dirty word or you’re well-established but would love to up your conversion rates.

In this episode of The Kate & Mike Show we covered:

  • The specific strategy Mike used to be the MVP of sales at our recent daycare fundraiser and how you can use it to up your sales in your business
  • Why I was secretly excited when Mike told me he used to sell drugs (yep – for real!)
  • 3 specific ways to get more people to buy what you’re selling (trust me – even if you don’t like to sell, you’re going to LOVE trying these out)

Click here to listen to the episode.

It doesn’t matter what you do for work; learning to sell matters.

You sell your kids on going to bed. You sold your spouse on marrying you. You sell donors on giving your organization money. You sell customers on buying your stuff.

If you want to get more people to buy what you’re selling (no matter what it is) click the link above and press play. You need these skills to thrive in any career, but especially in business.

Once you’ve listened, we want to know which one of the 3 tips we gave was the most useful and how you’re going to apply it to your business.

Enjoy, and we’ll see you next week for the next installment of the Podcast Listening Adventure!

Xo,
Kate

She grew up in a tiny town in Tennessee and fell in love with track and field, practicing high jump using an old sewer pipe that her coach would hold, falling onto an old mattress that they’d found and put in a sand pit. She got herself a full scholarship to college because of her…

Why Telling the Truth Will Grow Your Business with Jen Pastiloff, author of On Being Human

A few weeks before Do Less was going to launch, I decided to follow my intuition and reach out to a few women who I was loosely connected with on Instagram to see if they’d be open to receiving a copy. There wasn’t any real strategy behind who I reached out to. I just trusted…

Healing Our Crisis of Separation and Political Polarization with Love with Aaron Rose

When I read about the heartbreaking things going on around the world (the children in detention centers, the conflict in Sudan, the abortion ban, ICE raids, genetically modified food, police brutality, mass shootings, hate crimes, how seriously Mother Earth is suffering, and more) I often find myself freezing because it all feels so big and…

It’s lovely to hear about folks working 4 hours a week while having their best revenue months EVER or sending one email and making $50K, but do these stories not leave us wondering: Is this person full of sh*t? What’s the real story here? I was asked in a podcast interview the other day whether…

Sobriety, Substances, and Choosing to Live Awake

I was listening to two friends on a podcast talk about their journey with substances (drugs and alcohol), and then when I came home to have an editorial planning meeting with Mike about our podcast (which looks like me saying, “What do you want to talk about?” to him while we clean the kitchen) he…

Sometimes Mike and I record podcasts after we’ve put the girls to bed, which for us is late, late at night. We’re talking 7:30 or 8pm. Woah. While I’m my brightest and most focused first thing in the morning (because that’s the springtime of the day and springtime energy is my time), some really fun…
