What would $200,000 in recurring contracts do for your business?
What if you closed that kind of business in only 2 months?
One of my social media apprentices, Terry Williamson, found himself in the position of having to answer just that question a short 63 days after we began working together. He generated $200k in business in just 63 days! Amazed? Want to know how he did this? Who wouldn't right?
I just love celebrating success stories with my coaching clients! Honestly – I love what I do! <grin>
Terry and I were talking recently about how he worked to achieve this PHENOMENAL level of SUCCESS so rapidly in his social media business. We talked about what makes some people seem so naturally bold in pursuing success and what seems to hold other people back.
Curious – take a moment to think to yourself – what's your number one obstacle to realizing ultimate professional success?
Lack of knowledge?
Lack of motivation? I'm pretty sure it's not that either. Judging from the kinds of comments I get here, on my Facebook page, and on Twitter, I'm guessing you are excited and motivated about your success online. You're ready to put it all together and build the business you know you can build.
But what's the obstacle standing in your way that keeps derailing you before you start? Or maybe you've started but just aren't taking the calculated risks you need to take to grow your business to where you really want it to be.
Fear? Yes, I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that the number one obstacle you're facing in reaching your ultimate professional success is fear. And if you're like many of the people I talk to all across the world about building a business, I'm going to guess that one of your biggest fears is the fear of closing sales.
Social media is a fantastic way to connect with people you might not otherwise have had any access to. It's a great way to generate leads! And all of these benefits of social media branding and marketing serve to help you increase your sales as more people express interest in your product or service. But, without the ability to close sales, your social media platform will never grow your business to its full potential. And, unless your social media growth is just your hobby (not that there's anything wrong with that!), it's time to make peace with the idea of learning to close sales.
Terry shared one of the quotes that motivates him to push past fear.
"You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face…You must do the thing you think you cannot do." ~Eleanor Roosevelt
The fear factor that so many struggle with is a huge area of concern. The idea of closing sales can be downright scary for many so I knew this would be a major area to cover in the upcoming Social Boom event.
Coming to you September 22-23 in Tampa, Florida, the Social Boom conference has been specifically designed to help you learn strategies to harness the secrets of social media and online marketing to attract high quality clients, drive targeted traffic to your website, and explode your business like never before!

I'm delighted to be able to tell you that the author of this AMAZING SUCCESS story, Terry Williamson, will be at Social Boom. Terry has an amazing corporate sales background where he generated millions and millions of dollars in sales over the years. To say that he is the real deal is a mild understatement!
Terry's presentation is going to be PACKED with ACTION TIPS to take immediately toSUPERCHARGE YOUR SALES efforts and bring your own BOOM to your BUSINESS!
I asked Terry to share a few tips here to give you an idea of what makes him so spectacularly successful. Here they are:
· Never "DO a sales" call. Instead, have a conversation about a problem and how you are there to help.
· You can't listen when you are talking. The best sales calls are the ones where the prospect sales your service to himself.
· People buy from people they know and trust. Become known and trustworthy and the sales will take care of themselves.
Of course gaining the skills to close sales and the resources to support your efforts are a lot more than these three tips cover. Which is why I'm so delighted that at Social Boom, Terry will not only be covering the art of closing the sale, but also give you real, practical takeaways to supercharge your business.
