A little inside sales inspiration can help you get motivated (i.e., a kick in the butt) sometimes. Here’s a list of twelve quotes from well-known business leaders, past and present, that will help arouse you to action and drive your productivity in inside sales.
Listening allows salespeople to find out what their prospect needs. What they need to be answered, what they need a solution to, or what void your product fills. Focus on what your prospect is saying to pick up on clues that can ultimately help you win the client.
Check out what we said about listening in 5 Tips For Better Inside Sales Calls.
Finding someone who will listen to what you have to say is step one. Showing them that they can trust you and that you’re worthy of their business is step two.

There must be a passion inside you for what you’re selling. Even if that passion is to make people’s lives easier with your solution, let that inside sales inspiration shine through in your selling tactics.
Be inquisitive. If you’re curious about something else, ask. You never know: if you skip asking it, you may miss out on your golden ticket to the sale. If you launch into a sales pitch, you may miss something valuable that asking questions may have uncovered.
Give it one more shot. Don’t call your lead back the next day and bother them, but set a reminder to reach out to them in a few months to see if they have the available budget or more of a need for your product.
If you need some additional inspiration, pick up a few tips about effective lead follow-up.
Adapt. Prepare yourself to ebb and flow with each conversation and acclimate technologically. Change, after all, is inevitable.

Be courageous and make the offer. The only thing they can say is no, and even a no can transform into a yes by the know-how of a skilled salesperson.
How you speak to people matters. Your strategy, your tone of voice, follow-ups, etc., they all matter. You can have the perfect opportunity, a lead that’s sure to buy and ruin the deal if you don’t handle it correctly. Or, you can take a lead that has gone cold and sell them your product and every add-on you have to offer.

Yes, you want to learn the facts, but listen for the emotions too. You can hear the annoyance in a person’s voice when they speak. What annoys them about their day-to-day job duties? Is it something that the product you’re selling can alleviate?
Stay positive even if your prospect has a negative attitude. You know what you’re offering is valuable, so stick to it. Once you reveal the benefits and they see the value in your product, they will likely come around.
Don’t let a bad call ruin your day. Simply move on to your next prospect and try to win that one over instead.
Influential words from prominent people never fail to inspire me. Hopefully, these quotes have amped you up and provided you with the inside sales inspiration to tackle your next sales call with gusto!
