Closing high ticket sales calls is one of the main things new coaches and business owners have difficulty with. The fear of rejection, the imposter syndrome, self-doubt, and lack of confidence… these are all obstacles to making sales happen over the phone. On the other hand, not closing the sale makes us less confident which creates an endless cycle. Confidence still is the foundation of convincing someone to finally invest with you.
In this episode of Hidden Potential Podcast, Sarah and Gentry Chidester talk all things closing calls, being confident, maximizing sales, and converting clients. Gentry explains that the emotional state of someone trying to sell needs to be on point to communicate confidence. He also shares some pretty honest tips for people having a hard time closing calls and strategies to set up your pricing. Tune in!
