5 Types of Books Salespeople Can Buy Cheaper at the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale

Never ever judge a book by its price.

The syllabus of the Selling profession warrants more than just the art (and science) of closing deals. It includes elective subjects which are helpful for both before and after signing the purchase contract.

Learning about these subjects does not require admission to any university  though. You can use some of the 7% of your income which you allotted for  continuous education, to own books which help you earn more commissions. Get more value of such budget when you shop 50% – 90% cheaper books at the biggest book sale in the world. 

The Big Bad Wolf Book Sale specializes in providing the widest selection of books at the lowest possible prices.

Here are 5 types of books you can own cheaper aside from Sales and Marketing Books, when the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale visits your sales territory:

*Sales and Marketing books are found at the “Businesses and Economics” section of the Non-Fiction corner inside the venue.

1. CRIME NOVELS. When you sell, you convince the prospect. Right? How about reading how a killer “convinces” everybody else that he is innocent?

“We are all criminals varied in grave and escape plans.” Look for this section at the Big Bad Wold Book Sale!

2. FINANCE.  The acme of a successful Closer is being the CEO of their own company. That journey mandates mastery in handling money and resources. This subject also helps you when facilitating your prospect’s buying decision.

3. SELF-HELP/ MOTIVATIONAL. Closers are self-starters who love instructions. Own books that you can revisit when a crisis haunts. Hoard these genres.

4. PSYCHOLOGY. Buying is a tricky human behavior. It is powerful when you know how to dissect a prospect, neurons by neurons from the moment you meet them to the moment of their final decision. And at rare but real instances, when they change their mind post-sales.

5. LEGAL/ HISTORY. Every purchase requires documentation. Legal terminologies, phraseologies and exemplary cases of law interpretation are not harmful to be knowledgeable at.

Knowing enough about subjects relevant to the Selling profession enhances confidence. This then makes your prospect confident to own a purchase with you. Books are your confidence pills. And just a reminder, never ever judge any book by its price.

Three Traits I Learned From Dad That Made Selling Easier

Telling stories made me close a lot of accounts.

Whether or not you have a “Hallmark” relationship with your father, it is undeniable that we are influenced with the qualities of our Dad. As an idiom stresses, like father, like son.

For almost a decade in Selling, I was able to capitalize these three traits which resemble that of Dad’s. These made me thrived gracefully in the Selling industry.

52830CE1-5099-4558-868C-F72D3EE2343DDad is an advocate of alcohol as a social lubricant.

Never Prejudge

In my father’s words, “Dili gd nimo matag-na ang kaugmaun sa isa ka tawo”. I find this trait very useful in prospecting, banking leads and in creating business linkages. My father has always proved to me that letting a person feel important does not need any condition. I never saw my dad change his social treatment when talking to someone, may that be a friend from college who has now a well-paying job or a hardworking neighbor he believes who will going to be big in time. Dad is not a politician.

Be Vulnerable

I saw him cry. I heard him say sorry. I witnessed him reprimanded by Mom of being rowdy when drunk.  I even beheld him off guarded when a friend proved his argument weak during a boozing session. These all made him appear to be a strong father to me and made me respect him more. His being human. His being vulnerable, transgressing both the social machismo and the omnipotent-omniscient father image.

This trait helps me a lot during the entire Selling process. That it is ok to let the prospect see how you get disappointed and hurt. That it is ok to be sorry. That it is alright to be wrong (and recognize what is the correct). And that does not make you less of a respectable and tough professional. Be “You” on the sales table. Be a Sales Human than a Salesman.

Telling stories made me close a lot of accounts.

Know a Lot of Anecdotes 

Dad never runs out of real stories. This has influenced me so much that I even use his anecdotes in every pre-pitch talk. It always feels that those stories are mine and it works everytime. Humans just love being hooked in a storyline. This made me realize how persuasive one could become when people crave for the next part of your narration. Telling stories made me close a lot of accounts.

Just if you are asking, my father is not an Account Man. Dad is a Sea Farer who is thoughtful enough to catch up on the 9 months of being away from us, every time he is signed off from nautical contract. Happy Father’s Day also to your dad, may he be near you or afar!
