The Power of Selling
In writing The Power of Selling, Kimberley Richmond's goals were simple:
- To make the selling process really come alive for students in the classroom
- To teach students how to apply the fundamentals of selling to how to sell themselves and get the job they want, with the same process professional sales people learn for their own selling skills.
- VIDEO “RIDE-ALONGS”:
- VIDEO LEARNING SEGMENTS:
- SELLING U:
This textbook is suitable for these courses: Marketing, Sales, Salesmanship (introductory level)
This textbook is suitable for 2 and 4 year institutions.
The content is based on the core selling tenets so instructors will find the familiar principles of selling. In addition, the impact of Sales 2.0 is addressed at every stage including how to use interactive tools such as Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, blogs, and wikis effectively.
One of the best ways to learn about sales is by going on ride-alongs. So, every chapter begins with an exclusive feature called a Video Ride-Along. These short videos feature seven different sales professionals — one that starts each chapter. Each one talks about how he or she applies one of the key concepts covered in the chapter in their job. These videos are designed to be “virtual ride-alongs,” so students can actually feel as though they are getting insights first hand from selling professionals.
Video Learning Segments are PowerPoint slides embedded with videos designed to supplement the course PowerPoints and focus on one concept, like an ethical dilemma, pre-call preparation, effective presentations, or effective emailing. Each segment includes slides, videos, discussion questions, or exercises.
The last section of each chapter is called Selling U. It applies the concepts covered in the chapter to a student’s job search. Selling U topics include how to think about yourself as a brand, how to create a powerful cover letter and resume, how to create your personal elevator pitch, how to use networking and informational interviews to get the word out about your brand, how to prepare and dress for an interview, and how to negotiate and accept the right job offer. What makes The Power of Selling different is that Selling U is integrated into every chapter, making this text the ultimate guide to selling yourself.
You can visit the YouTube channel here for more than 50 videos you can use as resources for exercises and assignments in the classroom.
Or, find the Power of Selling group on LinkedIn, including sales professionals from across the country and many different industries. It is a great tool for networking, discussions, asking questions, and connecting with ”real world“ selling professionals.
