Multiple Options Sell

When giving your customers options, give them three. This is according to a new brain study that found it was easier for a person to make a decision between three items than it is for two. So, instead of offering a fixed rate or adjustable rate loan, add a balloon note to the mix. Or offer three different color choices.

Skip Anderson shares this information and much more with readers at his blog Selling to Consumers.

Sales Management or Selling?

Some sales managers might do their best at selling instead of managing. That's what poll results showed for sales author/expert Dave Kurlan. So, if you are thinking about moving up in the world it might be worth it to dissect the reasons why you want the change and ask yourself if you aren't better off just staying in that top sales spot. Kurlan shares the results and his thoughts with readers at his blog Understanding the Sales Force.
