25% of salespeople majored in business.The second most popular major? The college of life. 17% never attended college.
This leaves 58% of sales reps with degrees in things like History, Psychology, Sociology, and Poly Science.
If you fall into the 58% category realize this…
For four straight years you wrote term papers, listened to lectures, and were force-fed four syllable words.
Yes, you earned your piece of paper, but you’re a seller now, not a scholar.
That same piece of writing that earned you an A on your college midterm…
Would now get flagged as spam or deleted by your prospect.
So ditch the academic words and retrain your brain to communicate like a 10 year old.
Email prospects like you’re texting your buddy (without the profanities).
Because here’s the thing…
Prospects understand a whopping 90% of what they’re reading… when you speak in 14 words or less.
Prospects understand less than 10% when your sentences go up to 43 words.
If you expect to sell, then quell. (words that is)
