The Biggest, Miscommunication, Is To Assume, Communication Has Taken Place… Anonymous

Before sharing an opportunity, one should first pique the prospect’s interest; understand what he or she needs, and build his or her conversations, with the hope of fulfilling those needs.


One should set aside at least half an hour a day for prospecting; discipline his or herself to make this time nonnegotiable, and treat it as a priority. 


“In theory, there is no difference between practice and theory. In practice, there is no relation between them.” ~ Yogi Berra


References are encouraged, and when possible, sampling is recommended before a prospect commits to be ones customer or business partner. By one giving a sample of their product, to the prospect, will allow him or her to decide if the product would be beneficial to them.


Face to face prospecting approach can be challenging, especially if one is timid; so, it’s good if one tries online prospecting ~ Instant Messaging. However; in his or her approach, one should always focus on what the customer wants.


One should always begin and end his or her IM (Instant Messaging) conversations with a question, giving the prospect something to think about; and remember that, the most important person in the IM conversion, is the prospect.


The biggest miscommunication is to assume communication has taken place.” ~ Anonymous


When presenting an opportunity in-person, one should be creative; using examples when necessary, always inviting many questions from the prospect, and be certain that his or her answers are authentic.

Anonymous got that one right, as you really can't ever assume that people understand you or vice versa. Communication is never easy, it requires a slowing down of the thought processes,it requires ability to listen, it requires a certain amount of humility. Vain people can't communicate effectively as they are always thinking about what they what to say.Eliminate the listening process and it's impossible for communication to take place. Gotta love Yogi! What did he mean by that anyway? Good thoughts, thank you Velma.Francis Cassady

I agree one should use a form of information that is designed to pique the interest of those who are serious. I also found that those you charge a dollar for a sampled product are the ones who will utilize that product much faster than those who get it for free meaning the product could lay around for quite sometime before they even try it. Remember those who spend some money will want to get their value`s worth!Spencer Taylor Jr

Communication is a two-way street. It needs input from all parties involved. Especially in sales. We have to give the prospect or customer what they are looking for. Great PR, Velma! Thank you !:-) Herb Ratsch
