The best motivation is making the sale

Let Joanne help your account based sales teams land and expand with referrals.

Joanne Black is America’s top referral sales expert.

Every day salespeople around the world hear stories of phenomenal success achieved exclusively through status updates and tweets. So, the question becomes: Why isn’t digital prospecting working for them?

Because success in account based sales isn’t about who has the best technology. It’s about who has the best relationships.

Joanne cautions modern sellers about the dangers of digital dependence. She believes the best account based sales development strategies combine social intelligence, relationship building, and referrals.

Joanne has decades of experience selling to multiple industries and companies of all sizes. She knows what works and what doesn’t. Her simple message about using referral selling as the primary driver of sales resonates with sales and marketing audiences around the globe.

A splash of cold water

Joanne’s contrarian approach often goes against the prevailing winds, and even the philosophies of other speakers sharing the stage with her. Joanne’s energetic presentation style and actionable content provide audiences with a foundation to challenge what they hear in the blogosphere about how technology is changing how they should connect with prospects.

Joanne’s first book—No More Cold Calling™: The Breakthrough System That Will Leave Your Competition in the Dust—is still the sales bible for many successful account based selling teams. It outlines Joanne’s process-driven approach to increasing sales by turning friends, clients, and colleagues into your own private sales force.

Her second book—Pick Up the Damn Phone!: How People, Not Technology, Seal the Deal—makes the case for breaking through digital barriers and using real conversations as your key business differentiator.

Make sure everyone at your conference or sales meeting leaves with a book of their own!

Sales success isn’t about how many emails you can fire off in a day or how many friend requests you send to decision-makers. It’s about real relationships with real people.

Social Media Selling Is All About the Social

Successful sales professionals understand that social media is now a must-have business tool. But very few understand how to incorporate social into their account based sales strategies.

These practices alienate potential customers and waste company time and resources. It’s time to stop hiding behind screens and start making real connections! Learn why social selling is about being social, not selling, and how your team can make virtual connections that lead to real-world business.
