DAVID OGILVY KNEW THE IMPORTANCE OF SELLING.

His oft-quoted mantra “We sell, or else” cuts to the heart of the purpose of advertising. But what does salesmanship look like in the digital age? Where does proven wisdom marry with new tools and platforms?

OgilvyOne wants to find out and, at the same time, reinvigorate the noble art of selling. So the agency launched a competition on YouTube to find the World’s Greatest Salesperson. The three finalists will compete on stage on June 21, 2010 at the Cannes Lions Inter- national Advertising Festival.

“SALES IS CRUCIAL TO OUR CLIENTS BUT HOW WE SELL HAS CHANGED. WHAT DOES SELLING LOOK LIKE IN THE 21ST CENTURY?”

SELLING HAS COME FULL-CIRCLE.
SELLING HAS COME

M AKE A GRAND CLAIM TODAY AND ‘JANE SEARCHER’ WILL BE ON GOOGLE TO CHECK IT OUT. SHE’LL ASK HER FRIENDS ON FACEBOOK OR TWITTER ABOUT

IT. WATCH VIDEOS ON YOUTUBE TO SEE IF ‘AMAZING WIDGET’ IS WHAT THEY SAY IT IS. THE WORLD HAS COME FULL CIRCLE. WE’VE RE-ESTABLISHED TRIBES. THEY JUST LOOK A BIT DIFFERENT NOW.

But the end result of this re-organization is the power has been placed squarely back into the hands of the people. A small one-man shop in Topeka Kansas that engages the online community, listens and builds relationships can now compete with the ‘big boys’.

SO, HOW HAS SELLING CHANGED?

Selling has returned the power to the person with a great product, great relationships and
Selling has returned the power to the person with a great product, great relationships and ability to
communicate their benefits to the tribe. Selling has once again become more of a human experience. The
skills of pushing the right psychological triggers and emotional hot buttons are still relevant and extremely
useful. But only if value is being delivered.Without it, you’ll simply be ‘drawn and quartered’ online.

As more and more options become avail-

CUSTOMIZATION
that ultimately defines us. Products that can
be customized to fit into the complex identi-
ties of the people that form the customer base
are the products that those people seek for
their own lives. And it is the job of sales to
educate the public on how those products can
be customized. But in a time where so many
things are fighting for the mind-share of each
individual, that education must be
sought after, engaging, and relevant.

Good selling is being knowledgeable about the product. Great selling is being knowledgeable about the product and the customer. But the greatest selling is applying the knowledge about both the product and the customer into a cus- tomized application of benefits to lifestyle. In our instant gratification society, we are seeped in an age of instant information overload. Speed and quantity have overshadowed accuracy and quality in so many aspects of our lives that it has gotten difficult to wade through the digital muck. AS SALESPEOPLE IN THE 21ST CENTURY, IT IS OUR JOB TO ENSURE THAT OUR CUSTOM- ERS ARE NOT WEIGHED DOWN BY GOBS OF RAW DATA, but are instead presented with infor- mation that is carefully analyzed with empathy and relevancy in mind.

“Selling in the 21st century will look a lot like an Internet-based open-source application, growing like a living, eating, breathing organism, influenced by billions, growing wildly out of control with infinite psychological buyer profiles. Harnessing this new beast of a matrix will necessitate the atomic teamwork pod approach of research-driven, technology savvy, psychoanalytic profilers. Low-end products and services will yield less face time with target audiences, while high-ends become more expensive to market and sell due to investments in education-based sales teams; MUCH LIKE THE NEW SOCIAL LANDSCAPE, but that is another essay altogether.”

Enabling engines are tools that allow customers like us to easily make novel
products that consumers would actually want to buy. This business strategy
turns every maker of a business’ product into a member of a vast sales force
that is only paid on commission. These makers are often more zealous and pas-
sionate than a traditional sales force because they have an integral stake in the
success of the product. And because the maker network is now the sales force,

“HOW DO I GIVE PEOPLE WHAT THEY WANT?”

N EW SALES OPTIONS WILL ALWAYS INCREASE, BUT WE CAN FOREVER HEAD IN THE DIRECTION OF GAINING SALES BY FO-

CUSING ON ONE CRITICAL SALES QUESTION THAT HAS NEVER AND WILL NEVER CHANGE: HOW DO I GIVE PEOPLE WHAT THEY WANT?

Although this key sales ingredient remains unchanged, what gaining sales often look like has changed because what people want evolves. A current paradigm shift correlates to the Internet’s free flow of in- formation. This has conditioned consumers to expect and appreciate businesses that are willing to share something of value freely (often information), who are as transparent as possible, and that build community. Traditionally, sales took place at the moment when goods or services were exchanged for something of equal perceived value. Nowadays the moment of sales is often delayed. Many businesses, like Google, are making sales by the counter-intuitive practice of giving away their products/services and finding ways to monetize them later. This practice runs deeper than traditional promotional giveaways for brand awareness positioned to lead to sales. This is actual consumer inclusion and empowerment in product development and brand identity. SALES THAT LEVERAGE THIS THEME OF CUSTOMIZATION, USER- GENERATED CONTENT, AND INTERACTION WILL FLOURISH.”

On the other hand, sales people can also look to use accessibility of information to their ad- vantage. By looking at a prospect as a person, accessing online demographics, avoiding ste- reotypical judgement, and appealing to an indi- vidual’s worldview, a salesman can create wants within individuals. By utilising the technology of databases, salespeople can research and tar- get prospects accurately and strategically.

1.They set the bar very high for themselves. THINK BHAG (BIG HAIRY AUDACIOUS GOAL THAT MOST SHAKE THEIR HEAD AT)

NO QUALMS ABOUT MONEY. They can talk about

it, uncover budgets and not feel the least bit of pressure when it comes to money.

UNCONDITIONAL COMMITMENT, what ever it

takes ( as long as its legal) type of attitude.

4. THE ABILITY TO ESTABLISH RAPPORT AND TRUST.

Specifically, they are able to convince someone with the questions and the sales prospect believes the sales person is competent, reliable and has no hidden agenda. THIS IS DIFFERENT THAN LIKE.

5. 100% ACCOUNTABILITY FOR A LACK OF PERFOR-

MANCE. Win or lose, they take responsibility for figuring out how to make a deal happen.

6.THEY’RE SOLD ON WHAT THEY ARE SELLING, WHO THEY ARE SELLING TO AND WHY THEY ARE SELLING.

7. They get PUSH NOT PULL and understand the

power of selling is not in asking and listening not showing and telling. They sell collaboratively.

8. SELLING IS FUN FOR THEM, INFLUENCING PEOPLE

IS A JOY.
