5 Deadly Lies EVERY Salesperson Has Been Told by Sales Trainers

There’s something I need to get off my chest: Sales trainers are lying to you. The vast majority of sales trainers out there are spreading outright lies. I know that might sound crazy—but let me explain.

Most sales trainers teach salespeople old-school, out-of-date ideas about selling. These sales trainers aren’t bad people—they just got their information from a time when cars didn’t have seatbelts, the payphone was a salesperson’s best friend, and the web was just a thing created by spiders.

Seriously, even most sales books written today are just repackaged and regurgitated ideas from a bygone era. As a result, what they’re telling salespeople to do simply doesn’t work anymore. Let’s face it: EVERY salesperson out there has been on the receiving end of some pretty damaging lies about how to sell.

In this video, you’ll learn all about the 5 deadly lies every salesperson has been told by sales trainers. Check it out:
