How to close a sale and when?

#Top Tip 1 – HOW

The modern sales environment requires you to be innovative, visible, and memorable. How to do this? Try a multi-channel approach to selling:

  • Social Media, primarily LinkedIn
  • Calling and video conferencing
  • Post brochures and merchandise
  • Paid ads
  • Email Marketing
  • Your website and SEO
  • Newsletter
  • Podcast
  • Etc…


#Top Tip 2 – WHEN

From one of my surveys, 83% of Sales Professionals feel they require support in using social media for building business relationships (Correct Careers Coaching, 2019).

Do you know the best times and day to post on your preferred social media channels? And if you do… are these the times your prospects are socially active?

The general rule is that Tuesdays and Thursdays are good for prospects answering calls and emails, however, I call a director at 8am on a Monday morning and this was the only time I could reach them.


Follow-up is key to success… 24-48 hours after a pitch meeting is recommended. Continue to correspond with your prospect until you know if they wish to proceed of not.
