Independent Sales Consultant
Independent Sales Consultant | Marketing Tips
My favorite independent sales consultant is Jeffrey Gitomer who runs BuyGitomer. Why? Because he is a geyser of free helpful advice and information. He provides videos, weekly newsletters and inexpensively priced books which provide advice which can change your whole attitude and career. He gives away much more than he receives.
Gitomer was an average sales professional until he decided to write a weekly sales column for a local newspaper. This column quickly grew and now is published in over 200 newspapers and magazines. His phone rings off each hour with new opportunities for him.
Gitomer motivated me to write a book during my MBA program. It was awful, please do not read this book. What was great about this process though was it taught me the importance of writing daily. It took me 9 months to write the first 100 pages of the book and only 20 days to write the next 200 pages. The secret was sitting down and writing 10 pages/day. Since then I have started a few different blogs and I know make a living off of my daily writing habits, 100% of my consulting and sales are completed as a result of my daily blogging and article writing.
Here is an example of the type of advice that Gitomer delivers:
