Episode #044: Persistence with Iain Swanston
In This Episode of The Buyer’s Mind with Jeff Shore:
Iain Swanston and Jeff talk about the importance of persistence for sales professionals, not pestering. If you’ve got something that adds to your customer’s life, then you should be contacting them and sharing it with them, whether by text, e-mail or even a phone call. However, if you’re contacting them with information that doesn’t help them with their mission, you’re probably just pestering them.
