There’s a reason everyone says “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know.” If you’re striving to reach ambitious goals, it’s impossible without the right relationships. So how do you reverse-engineer relationships with the exact people you want to know?
Through his podcast B2B Growth and his company Sweet Fish Media, James Carbary has pioneered a concept called content-based networking—a new approach to building your professional network. Instead of relying on chance encounters and random in-person events, content-based networking allows you to connect with anyone, at any time, and from anywhere in the world.
In Content-Based Networking, you’ll learn a proven three-part framework to consistently connect with potential customers, investors, referral partners, industry influencers, and anyone in between. Using this framework, you’ll develop thought leadership in your industry, while simultaneously creating meaningful relationships with the exact people that can help you reach your goals and dreams.
Same Side Sellin: How Integrity and Collaboration Drive Extraordinary Results for Sellers and Buyers by Ian Altman & Jack Quarles
Are you tired of playing games with your customers?
The most widely used metaphors in sales are those related to sports, battle, or games. The challenge with this mindset is it requires that one person wins, and the other loses. Instead of falling victim to a win-lose approach, what if you shared a common goal with your potential client? How might things change if the client felt that you were more committed to their success than making the sale?
Does it sometimes seem like you and your client are working against each other?
Same Side Selling gives practical steps to break through sales barriers and turn confrontation into cooperation. Sellers that implement the Same Side Selling approach will be seen as a valuable resource, not a predatory peddler.
A Different Type of Book on Selling
What makes Same Side Selling different from any other book on this topic is that it is co-authored by people on both sides : a salesman (Ian) and a procurement veteran who understands how companies buy (Jack). The buyer s perspective is baked into every sentence of the book, along with the seller s point of view. Our aim is to replace the adversarial trap with a cooperative, collaborative mindset. We also want to replace the old metaphor of selling as a game.
The New Metaphor: Selling Is a Puzzle
Same Side Selling is the idea of solving a puzzle instead of playing a game. Discover how to sell with integrity from the same side of the table for better results all around.
