Why You're In Sales If You're A Business Owner By Sales Psychology Expert And Business Owner J Richard Kirkham B.Sc.

I was talking to a buddy of mine who owns a computer repair business. During the conversation, he told me he hated sales. This confused me. Let me explain why….

I've spent a long time in sales

Earning commission and feeding my family and pay my bills with what I earned from sales.

When I took the leap to full time business owner….

It was an in-home computer tutoring and repair business right here in Honolulu Hawaii covering all of Oahu. I went to a Geek Meet to meet with fellow computer people, website designers and other business owners in the technology industry.

It's not how good you are. It's how well you can sell.

I met a man who was starting his computer repair business at the same time I was starting my computer tutoring and repair business. At that time he was better at repairing computers than me.

However, I'd been in sales over 20 years. I knew how to schedule appointments using the choice close. I knew how to increase the perceived value of my computer services. Basically, I knew how to sell.

He was a better computer technician, but I was a better salesman.

My business began thriving within one month while he struggled with his. My advantage? My ability to sell....

  • Sell the appointment

  • Sell the computer service

  • Sell my value

Eventually, thanks to my gift of ADHD, I hyper-focused on computers and I was able to catch up to and even exceed the computer skills of the businessman who started at the same time as me.

So if you're in business, you're in sales. Don't just get over it. Embrace it!

The skill of selling is probably one of the least sought after by business owners and is THE most important skill any business owner in ANY media, face to face, online or radio, needs to learn to increase business.

You have three choices to increase your sales

Study everything you can on sales psychology online for free. Be warned, however, I always tell people the great thing about the internet is anyone can publish an article or webpage. The bad thing about the internet is anyone can publish an article or webpage.

Take lessons from me or someone like me. Be aware there are not that many sales psychology experts who are also experienced, trained teachers. There's a huge difference between having knowledge and being able to transfer that knowledge to another individual in an efficient, positive, enjoyable manner which promotes retention of knowledge. Email me at Rick@BusyBusinessPromotions.com so I can secure a time slot for you.

Don't have time to learn to increase your sales with sales psychology lessons?

Then utilize option three. Just hire me!

You'll find monthly automated and full services to increase traffic to your website as well as increase the percentage of sales of your present traffic.

But do it now. You're losing money and sales to competitors as we speak. Visit https://BusyBusinessPromotions.com

I spent over 30 years in sales earning commissions and taking care of my family on my earnings. I got into computers in 1993. There were no SEO experts back then.

Video - The Best Ways to Promote Your Website When You Have Time

Here are some proven marketing tactics to increase traffic and sales for your website. Some of my automated marketing clients and website promotion clients of BusyBusinessHosting.com have asked me how they can promote their websites and products when they have time to add to the automated marketing content and social media posts.

Write Articles on Your Website

This establishes you as an expert as well as creates more keyworded content for Google and other search engines.

E.A.T. stands for expertise, authoritativeness, and trustworthiness. It comes from Google's Search Quality Rater Guidelines. What I like to say it E.A.T. to eat :-)

Obviously, I can write articles for you. It would save you time and allow you to do what you do best for your business. I need about two to three hours to write a good keyworded customer and search engine loving article for you. Thus far my going rate is only $95.00 per hour. You can hire me and send me instructions on my main webpage.

Podcasts

More and more people are listening to podcasts. Think about something you're doing that's unique and start contacting podcasters. Local businesses look for local podcasts.

Press Releases

Search Google and Bing for submit press release free. Press releases are a good way of getting quality backlinks while building authority. As a cheapskate, they also happen to be one of the few services I would consider paying for.

Use the third person in your press release.

Make your press release newsworthy, not just advertising. Think of watching the news or reading the paper. Does your news fit in there? Then it's newsworthy.

In the about the author section make sure you use your citations. See the definition of those below.

Feel free to hire me to write your press release for you.

For Just Adding Links

Use my Huge List Where to Add Your Links Articles and Free Advertising Social Bookmarking, Forums, Bookmarking Video Sites and More

Search for Your Service or Product In Google and Bing

The purpose of the search is not to find your own product or service. It's to find directories, forums, and social media sites where your competitors are listed. Why? SO YOU CAN LIST YOUR PRODUCT OR SERVICE THERE AS WELL.

Stay away from paid submissions for now. You could always email me or ask a question below about a paid submission site. Every time I add my website promotion and hosting business to a website they have some type of paid upgrade. I get an email from them and reply asking for proof or references that the upgrade works and every single time I hear crickets. No response whatsoever.

Social Media

Don't just post on social media. Make a profile. See BusyBusinessHosting's Twitter profile. Feel free to follow me while you're there. By the way, DO NOT ignore Twitter. Google loves Twitter.

My Huge List Where to Add Your Links Articles and Free Advertising Social Bookmarking, Forums, Bookmarking Video Sites and More has social media sites.

How to Format Your Profile

When you make your profile be as consistent as you can. The search engines such as Google and Bing like the consistency but, possibly more importantly, the people visiting various social media will see the consistency as well.

If I've made a Twitter banner for you use that banner or something like it as part of your profile on other social media.

Free Twitter Tip

I try to include my website address along with keywords in my profile name. You can even change your user name for keywords which is rare amongst social media.

Keywords are what people type into search engines to find your website.

For Local Businesses

Local directories such as Yelp, Bing Places and Google Business Profile which now uses Google Maps are where your time sensitive efforts should be placed. After finding all the free local directories move onto social media.

Local Businesses Check Out Your Brand New Automated Service to Help You with Local SEO

Make Multiple City Targeted Webpages for Local SEO and Sales

SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. It's how we adjust a website to make it more clear to search engines what your intentions are with your website. Fortunately, this also helps make it more clear to your prospective buyers as well.

Local businesses should have a web page for each city in which they're located or where you service your clients. It's easier for search engines to figure out the importance of that location and therefore you are placed higher in your search engine ranking.

Citations for Local Businesses

Citations are a fancy term that means placing your NAP all over the place. NAP stands for

Name

Address

Phone number

Whenever possible the website address should also be included.

Once again Google Business Profile and other directories like consistency. So be certain to use the same EXACT name address and phone number for your business. There's an old website tracking trick where you place ?camfromhere at the end of your URL which is your website address. I do not recommend even doing that for your citations.

Don't worry BusyBusinessHosting clients. I'm working on something to automate this.

YouTube

Video Reviews

If a picture is worth 1000 words a video is worth a million. Use YouTube AND other video sharing sites to post video reviews from happy clients. Then take that video and embed it on a page of video referrals on your website. When I do a video I always make sure the word Video is in the title. For search engine purposes make sure you have the word review for each review. The word review is searched for more than the word testimonial according to Google Trends.

Convert Articles Into Videos

Next, convert some of your most popular articles you've written into video. I'm an in home tutor specializing in students with ADHD since I have ADHD myself. Don't worry, I hyperfocused on SEO and digital marketing :-).

One of my favorite articles I wrote for this venue is

ADHD - The Gift and Superpower of ADHD and How to Use It Not Manage It - Use It! by In Home Tutor Covering Honolulu Hawaii and All of Oahu J. Richard Kirkham B.Sc. Text 808.224.1870 Note the phone number right in the title so prospective students don't have to search for my number to call me. Having my phone number in the title tag also means it will appear in Google and other search engines.

I did this same article on YouTube. Note in the description I linked back to the original article on my website. YouTube allows affiliate links so there are also some Amazon affiliate products related to ADHD.

I then made a new webpage and embedded the video into the page like so

So now we have new material, a video on a high traffic website and a link from the high traffic website back to my website. Adding a video to the original article would have also help with search engine optimization. I believe especially a YouTube video due to the old saying,

"Google loves Google."

Now Advertise Your Best Products or Services on YouTube

I just finished telling a prospective website hosting and website promotion client the importance of tracking and knowing what your most popular products and services are. Also which products or services make your business the most money?

Do a separate YouTube video for each popular product or service. Create a separate playlist for each product or service if they're different enough to require one.

Easiest Way to Do All This

Obviously, the easiest way to do all of this is to hire me to do it for you. For more information on my very affordable rates visit my main web page

You may email me at admin@busybusinesshosting.com

US only residents may also text me. I ask you not to call due to time differences here in Hawaii. I know you're excited to get started, but please respect my wishes. Otherwise I'd be on the phone all night with no time for my family.

Rick Kirkham's Breaking News Online Service

Why Businesses Fail and How to Make Sure You Don't

I don't care if your business is online or offline. The basics of running a successful business remain the same. I met a man who was starting his computer repair business at the same time I was starting mine. His computer repair skills were better than mine at that time. My business picked up quickly while his eventually failed. Here's the difference in our backgrounds as to why my computer repair business thrived and his did not....

I have no idea why people have made this a bad phrase

SALES TECHNIQUES. Lazy people and employee-minded people just left this page. You always hear people mention marketing. by the way, for those of you who choose to continue reading. I have a free tip for you that will increase your sales.

  • Digital Marketing

  • Internet Marketing

  • Affiliate Marketing

But when was the last time you read about sales techniques or closing techniques? Okay, if you're about to Google what closing techniques are you'd better stay on this page.

What Does Sales Techniques Have to Do with Our Difference in Backgrounds?

I spent 20 years testing hearing and selling hearing aids on a commission basis. The man I met designed websites for a large company. This gave me the skills I need to:

  • Write ad copy

  • Design websites with a call to action which is another phrase meaning closing in sales

  • Schedule appointments on the phone using choice closes

  • Not be afraid of my labor fee

  • Request my money directly after the appointment whether the job was completed or not

I Can Go On But Here's My Point

Being able to use sales techniques helped me to stand out in my business field. New marketers, see there I go, the phrase is NEW BUSINESS OWNERS, usually start out with employee minds waiting to be told by the affiliate marketing vendor (i.e. product owner i:e BUSINESS OWNER) what to do. Chances are the vendor has never had any sales training either. So what does he/she tell the new business owner?

"Just drop your affiliate link in Facebook groups."

How Does That Make You Stand Out?

From the thousands of people dropping links in the same groups? The new business owners are probably even copying and pasting the same advertisements the vendor told them to copy and paste.

We Use Sales Techniques Everyday of Our Lives!

I still remember my son at 8 years old. We were shopping and my son said,

"Dad, can we buy this? I'll carry it."

That's a redirect close. For a split second, it worked as I was about to say,

"You don't have to carry it son. Just put it in the shopping cart."

I laughed. As both a trained, experienced teacher and expert in sales-psychology I appreciated my son's attempt and told him to just put it in the shopping cart.

We Also Use Sales Techniques When

  • We ask people out on dates

  • Proposing marriage. Think of the sales presentation you set up yourself when you proposed to your mate.

  • Job interview

  • Asking for a raise

  • Getting recognition to get a promotion

Again, I Can Go On....

You can see my original point on how many businesses fail may also be a reason why you may be failing in other parts of your life. If that sounds to harsh, I'm sorry, but maybe a reality check is just what you need to give you that nudge.

Remember The Definition of Insanity?

To do the same thing over and over and expect different results.

So, There are a Few Things I Can Do to Help You

Get signed up with https://BusyBusinessHosting.com and I'll give you a one-time complimentary email you a custom report on how to improve the ad copy on your web page.

I'll give you private Zoom or Google Meet basic sales technique lessons customized toward your profession at only $95.00 per hour. Let me explain this.

No, I'm not an expert in your field. I do, however, have the unique background of being a trained teacher as well as an expert in sales. So with a few questions, I'll teach you how to close your sales better with some customized sales techniques geared toward you, your personality, and your profession.

One quick tip I'll give you for free right now. Stop selling technology. Sell the benefits. This is a very common error.

Email me to set this up. Time and appointments are limited. admin@busybusinesshosting.com

I found one decent book on ad copy. Be aware this is an affiliate link so I make a small commission when you order. It costs you nothing extra and supports my efforts to bring you information such as this.

Why Would I Tell You This Ad Copy Ebook Does Not Seem to Be Popular?

Two reasons:

To demonstrate that the phrase sales techniques remains unpopular for some reason when in fact it's the phrase that will make or break your business.

If it's not popular you'll have an edge over your competition! This same thing obviously applies to Zoom or Meet customized sales lessons!

So Get Yourself an Edge Over Your Competition

Embrace and learn more about sales techniques to increase your business and make more money.

Or

Scroll up and reread the definition of insanity and embrace it.

Increase Sales - Why You Need Help with Your Web Page and Other Sales Copy to Increase Your Sales and Make More Money

It’s the job of a sales expert, such as myself, to make your prospective buyers as passionate about your product or service as you are and by the time your web page readers are getting to the bottom of your web page they have already become your buyers. By the time people leave your office, your prospects are your new customers. By the time you leave their home, everyone is smiling and happy after signing the contract.

  1. Are you an expert in your product or service?
  2. Are you passionate about your product or service and believe EVERYONE in your demographics would benefit from it?
  3. Are you one of the best there is in your field (you’d better be saying yes if you’re in business)?

NOW, here’s the BIG question. Are you confused why your prospective buyers are NOT as passionate as you are about your product or service and do you wonder why your prospective buyers are not buying from you?!

THAT’S Where an Expert in Sales-Psychology Becomes a Necessity! enter image description here

It’s the job of a sales expert, such as myself, to make your prospective buyers as passionate about your product or service as you are and by the time your web page readers are getting to the bottom of your webpage, your buyers: By the time people leave your office, your prospects are your new customers. By the time you leave their home, everyone is smiling and happy after signing the contracts. Your new customers...

  1. CANNOT BELIEVE THE LOW PRICE COMPARED TO THE VALUE!
  2. WANT IT NOW! CANNOT WAIT FOR SHIPPING OR YOUR SERVICE TO BEGIN!
  3. DON’T KNOW HOW I EVER DID WITHOUT IT!

Rick texted me some advice to help me with my dog training website. I stared at the screen for an hour and a half before giving up. Then Rick suggested we meet and he showed me how to make some GREAT changes to my website including sales suggestions. Rick also showed me which directories and social media to add my website to. www.PalsUnlimitedDogTraining.com/

“Rick Kirkham is dangerously effective in tweaking sales pages.”, Lisa Hendrickson IT professional and Office 365 specialist. https://callthatgirl.biz/

“Rick had a serious talk with me about something I was saying to my students that may have allowed them to think it was okay to flunk my test! He helped both my students and possibly kept angry parents from calling me.” Teacher Honolulu Hawaii.


“I Don’t Need Your Sales Expertise Rick. I Got This”


Then why are you reading this? The three most dangerous words a business owner can utter are “I got this” when “this” is not directly related to the business owner’s product or service. It’s a fact, to increase your business you must LEAVE your comfort zone. So if you’ve “HAD THIS” all this time, it’s time to hire me and have me take that part of your business off your shoulders! I’ll give you more time to do what you do best! You will help more people, increase your sales and make more money.

Okay Rick. What Can You Do to Help My Business Increase Sales and Make More Money?


Edit (tweak) your sales material including: Business Cards I put this first because some people don’t think of business cards as being a sales tool. ANYTHING and I mean ANYTHING you hand someone can be a sales tool, either to increase sales or remove future sales.

Here’s an idea I came up with a while back. A way to make free, searchable, text style sms business cards. I send this every time I get a business call.


Web Pages


Create a sales funnel to get contact information, increase sales and build your mailing list. Despite the great marketing of the phrase sales funnel, sales funnels have been around online since affiliate marketing started back in the 90’s. You’ll also need me to find the right keyword phrases people use to search for your product or service.


Email Marketing


Email marketing continues to be an excellent source of sales and income. Supplying someone with just enough information to make your prospect want more information by subscribing to your newsletter, which presents more information on your product or service followed by a soft-sell for your product or service at the end of each newsletter is a proven way of making money online with your product or service or even a great marketing method for off-line services and products. The wording for each one of these emails is very important. Especially the lost art of the softsell. Lost by those who sell and market without training in sales-psychology.

SMS Text Marketing

A single text could get you your next sale or client for your service. I personally use sms text marketing to stay in contact with my own clients. A response when you first meet someone should take place within 24 hours. Texting is one of the easiest ways to stay in contact with new clients, prospects and people in your circle of referrals. Sometimes it’s just a message to say hi to keep my name in front of people.

Letters and Postcards

Direct mail marketing in this digital marketing world is definitely a way to stand out and be different. Every word must be carefully looked at to make sure it takes your prospect to your desired goal. In this case it’s probably not to buy direct, but to call you instead. A limited time offer and call to action are a must for this type of sales letter or postcard.

Presentations

NOTHING is more powerful than face to face presentations. With that in mind I have a short story for you….

The worst presentation I’d ever seen was from the owner of a company believe it or not SELLING ADVERTISING! When someone asks a question during a presentation that gives the salesperson a chance to perform a soft-close (That’s a very good question. What will your company be using that feature for if I may ask? Assumed close) and a chance to customize your presentation based on your prospect’s answer.
When this business owner was asked a question, he got confused and acted as though he was being interrupted instead of using it as an opportunity to customize the presentation and increase the chances of a sale.

Google Slides are a great replacement for Power Point. I've used them to create videos and then convert the Google Slides into ebooks for even more advertising.

Maybe the company owner should have hired a salesperson to do the presentation. I’ll tweak (edit) your presentation and even prepare you for questions with soft-sells.

Youtube Videos

Video marketing and advertising is very powerful. It’s one of the most powerful forms of sales and marketing media. Videos can be self-produced with free software, all the way to paying thousands of dollars for a professionally done video. I’ll edit your script for sales and proper English (I’m a dual certified teacher).

I Got Restarted in My Sales Editing Copy Career Because of Social Media. Let Me Explain…

I spent over 20 years making a living in commission based sales. One company even sent me to sales school. I utilized those sales skills to build my business as an in home, onsite and virtual computer, tablet and cell phone trainer, tutor, virus removal and repair specialist here in Honolulu Hawaii covering all of Oahu and remotely for the rest of the U.S.A.. I used to belong to an IT business owners group on Facebook. A fellow member asked people to critique her sales page. I looked at it and saw some good improvements I could make in several areas. I messaged her and asked her if I could rewrite it and share it as a Google Doc. She said yes.

Now I Was Hooked Again!

She was so impressed with my rewrite she hired me for some other ad copy jobs. Now I was hooked again. I love sales-psychology and I love writing. Put the love and skill together and you get one of the best in the profession.

What I Don’t Do

Graphics. It’s simply not my forte’. People may tell you they can do both, but it’s really two completely different sides of the brain. Most people, like being left or right handed, have a dominant side of their brain. That’s why we have scientists and artists, yet one person is rarely both. I love sales and sales-psychology. I have a background in sales, teaching and behavior modification. This puts me more on the scientific side.


How Much Do You Charge for Writing Sales Copy Rick?

Let’s be very clear about something first. There’s a HUGE difference in investment between making a sales page or any kind of ad copy from scratch versus editing and tweaking your ad copy for sales and even SEO. So, if you write something up first that is editable, in other words not some pamphlet you took a picture of and sent me. An actual Word Doc or Google Doc I can edit and share back to you. That’s a one day job compared to all the research that would go into doing anything from scratch and a good savings for you.

Ad Copy Can Be Anywhere from $25.00 to Thousands of Dollars
