Scott Ingram: You’re listening to the Daily Sales Tips podcast and I’m your host, Scott Ingram. Let’s talk about community for a minute. I am a huge huge believer in the power of community. Sure I love bringing your the stories of sales success and these sales tips, but the most impactful thing I’m working to create is community.
As I think we’re all experiencing quite acutely right now. Humans are wired to do things together. We’re better together. When we collaborate and help each other. When we learn from each other. As you’ve probably heard over and over again, and hopefully seen in action, sales is a team sport. It’s hard to survive as a lone wolf, and now more than ever I think we need each other. A few weeks ago I setup a Google sheet for those on the listener list who get my weekly emails to connect. There they could list their information and a link to their LinkedIn profile and connect with each other. That’s a little thing. A much bigger thing is the Sales Success Summit. That’s where the community really comes together and one of the things that we do on the second Friday of each month, so this coming Friday is one, is come together on an attendee networking call, because I don’t want the Summit and that experience to be a one time, once a year thing. The goal is to foster those relationships and build that community all year long.
This week I’ve got a lot of really significant updates to share with them. Those individuals truly are the core of this community, as they’re the most active, and the most invested. You could almost think of it as a bullseye. In the outer circles are the most passive members of the sales success community. Those that perhaps occasionally listen to the podcasts. Move in to the next circle and you get to the regular listeners. Then you get to the real fans. Those who rarely miss an episode and they’re the ones who have typically subscribed to the listener list and will get sneak previews and updates before the less engaged parts of the community.
Finally, you come to the inner circles. First with those who have attended or have already registered for the Summit. Again, they’re committed and they’re invested, but like with any community. You get out what you put in. I would bet that if you reached out to David Weiss, Camille Clemons, or Alex Smith, to Jeff Bajorek, Dale Dupree, or Jacquelyn Nicholson and asked them about their experience and the value they get from this community. They will tell you they’ve benefited massively and I would tell you, its because they’re all-in.
There’s more that I’m working on to bring this community together and to create more opportunities for us to learn from each other. We might need to be physically isolated right now, and because of that, we should really be working hard to be connected socially. To be a meaningful part of a community, and if this resonates. If you value this content and the people who share it. I’d really like to hear from you. At the very least I’ll get you access to that “Connecting the Sales Success Community” Google sheet. If you’re interested in going deeper and becoming more active in the community. Let me know that as well and I’ll share more about what’s going on, starting next week once I’ve shared some of this with those who are currently holding a ticket to the 2020 Summit. Just email me: [email protected] and type “Community” in the subject line so I can prioritize your reply.
Thank you for being a part of this community at whatever level makes the most sense for you, and as always. Come on back tomorrow for another great sales tip. Thanks for listening!
