Let’s face it. Sales is hard.
Staying on top of your game week after week is tough. Staying positive rejection after rejection is almost impossible. How do you keep yourself going?
You keep learning, keep improving, and keep moving forward. And how do you do that?
Salespeople lead incredibly busy lives and while there is an endless amount of text-based as well as video content available, we understand that not all salespeople have the time to read articles or watch videos.
Sales podcasts, on the other hand, have the power to provide bite-sized chunks of insight in a short period of time. No matter how busy you are, or where you are, you can always find 20 to 30 minutes a day—usually on your commute in the car, on the train—to learn from someone else’s experience and make that time count.
Since Apple added podcasts to iTunes in 2005, the demand for podcasts has skyrocketed. Today, there are over 60,000 podcasts on iTunes alone, and this has been growing by an average annual rate of 80-90 percent since 2008.
