Notable Quotes: 

            “I’ve also always believed that—and maybe it was as a door to door salesman that I learned this—that the human voice has magic in business.”

                                                            – Chris Beall 

“That also explains why most sales situations—most pursuits as we might call them—fail. They end with no purchase whatsoever because none of the sellers exceed that threshold of trust with the buyer. They don’t become more trusted than the buyer trust themselves.”
                                                            – Chris Beall           

Brief Summary

            Apparently, you only have seven seconds in a conversation to build trust. If you’re an SDR, you’re reaching out via emails and cold calls, how can you leverage that seven seconds and get the person you’re talking to to trust you?

            In this episode of The Sales Development Podcast, we’re talking to ConnectAndSell CEO, Chris Beall, to walk us through the psychology behind how you can get your potential client to trust you and give you an edge in your career.
