Let's face it, nobody is going to be interested in talking to a salesperson who doesn't sound excited or enthusiastic about what they are selling. Advertisers and marketers understand the importance of capturing their viewer's attention in the first 2 seconds - and so should you!
Companies like 5-Hour Energy have made millions of dollars in sales exploiting that '2:30pm feeling' to customers who can relate to experiencing the low energy levels of being at work in the afternoon.
If you're in sales, that '2:30pm feeling' can hit at any time of the day - and when it does - it hards hard.
However, if you want to increase sales, you're going to need to increase your energy. Even when you don't feel like it.
Great salespeople are like great actors. It doesn't really matter how you feel, what's going on or what your day looks like. When it's time to perform, it's time to perform. And as always, the show must go on.
Here's 5 things you do throughout your day to increase your energy and increase your sales.
Tip #1: Stand up. I'd recommend splurging on one of those fancy standing desks (we use Autonomous brand at our office). You'll take up more space, feel bigger, have better blood flow and improved posture.
Tip #2: Act Like You Just Earned $1,000,000. How would you act if you just won the lottery? You'd probably be pretty excited. Act like that and people will be interested in talking with you.
Tip #3: Don't Eat Large Meals At Work. Skip that cheeseburger and fries for lunch. There's literally no reason to slam multiple pieces of pizza during the day. You know how you feel when you've had more than you need to eat.
Tip #4: Stay Hydrated. Nearly 76% of all Americans are chronically dehydrated. Not consuming enough water will leave you feeling lazy and lethargic. Maybe that's why nearly 3/4's of Americans live paycheck to paycheck.
Tip #5: Get Enough Sleep. You're in sales. Everyday is game day. Make sure you treat your body to enough sleep so you can feel rested and ready to tackle the day.
