You Have To Believe

American Express OPEN Forum is presenting an article on the art of sales by Dr. Susan L. Reid, a business coach and consultant for entrepreneurial women.
Here are Reid’s Five Keys to Making a Sale:
1. Treat your clients with respect, dignity, interest, and care.
2. Forget about rejection.
3. Shine your light.
4. You have to believe.
5. Take the stress out of sales.
There’s much more detail in the article, but I thought I’d provide this quick overview, since media and marketing people need to know this stuff.



About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
