What are you afraid of? Everybody’s scared of something. The fear of heights is called Acrophobia. Fear of spiders is called Arachnophobia. The irrational fear of the number 13 is called Triskaidekaphobia. And fear of getting the phone slammed in your face is called “Call Reluctance.” Web designer John Petrowski, owner of The Website Shoppe,
Although it’s not often you see “movie reviews” for one minute promotional videos about boosting sales productivity, please humor me. The acting and cinematography in our Mojo Dialer animated shorts will give you cravings for buttered popcorn. Jane, pictured above, is a phone “sales genius,” who makes a living from prospecting. At first, she
With the launch of our web-based platform comes a new licensing structure sure to please any company looking to use the Mojo Auto Dialer in their businesses.

Brockton, Massachusetts calls itself the “City of Champions” because it was the home of boxing greats Rocky Marciano and Marvin Hagler. It’s also the turf of Keller Williams real estate agent Deric Lipski, a Mojo user and salesman who describes his prospecting calls with the hyperbolic language of a ring announcer. Consider the title of
My son, who just started Little League, is still getting used to the idea that baseball is a game of urgency. It’s vital to sprint to first base before the ball gets there instead of a casual stroll. It’s kinda important to take the ball out of your glove and throw it to the appropriate
If you’re running a successful business, chances are you have not put all your marketing apples in one basket. In addition to prospecting for leads with outgoing phone calls, you likely have several other avenues to spread the word: brochures, face-to-face networking events, advertisements, Web site, blogs, etc. For those delightful occasions when people are
Over the years, Utah’s Ethan Selph has sold satellite dishes, cable TV packages, security systems, water filters and prepaid legal services on the phone.
Today, he’s one of the rising stars in the health insurance industry, sharing advice to other sales people how to maximize their chat time. To Selph, it doesn’t matter what you are selling as long as you don’t come across as the stereotypical sales guy.
“Don’t sound like a total marketer,” he suggests. “I don’t even mention the name of my company. I say, ‘Hey, it’s Ethan’ instead of trying to come across as some big corporation. I try to sound like the Joe down the street.”
Another tip to project confidence: Don’t think of yourself as “bothering” or “interrupting” the people on your prospect list.
For Festini, cardiovascular exercise is a great way to keep in shape to counter the sedentary nature of making cold calls — an activity he feels comfortable doing up to 12 hours a day. And San Diego’s R & R Marathon is more about fun than winning, featuring a course that runs through Sea World, that has up to 2,000 cheerleaders on the sidelines, has live music acts at each mile (past artists have included Smash Mouth, Hootie and the Blowfish and Pat Benatar) and offers free beer at the finish line!
Every day I share with people what Mojo can do for them and ultimately, their business goals. Altogether it’s not too difficult a job, relying on rudimentary sales principles: identifying needs, offering solutions and if the two jive, we walk away with a great business relationship.
On February 7, I had the opportunity to travel to the West Coast for the first time so I could share the Mojo experience in-person. I took a plane ride from Manchester, NH to Chicago, IL and then I was off to San Jose, CA to Tom Ferry’s Business by Design 3-day event. Face-to-face, to the thousands passing by our booth, I had the responsibility of conveying a software-based triple-line power dialing and lead management program capable of emailing, dropping prerecorded messages on answering machines, and CID substitution.
The Federal Trade Commission is suing three companies that have been making automated recorded phone calls to sell “worthless” credit card interest reduction programs, charging customers an up front fee as high as $1,495 and delivering zilcho. Here’s a snippet from the official government press release: “According to the three FTC complaints, Economic Relief Technologies,
Deserved or not — and we think NOT — the telemarketing professional is burdened with many negative stereotypes. Particularly the image of the telemarketer as a short-term, unfocused employee who is just biding time for another “better” job to come along. The reality is that telemarketing is simply a sales tool — a way to
Take a look at the gorgeous landscape above. It’s Saguaro National Park in Tucson, Arizona. But there’s also something intensely ugly going on in Tucson. Property values have recently plummeted by 45 percent, making the area one of the worst hit cities in America alongside Las Vegas and Phoenix. Despite it all, real estate broker
One of the most frequent questions we get here at Mojo Selling Solutions is “Did you guys take your name from the Austin Powers movie?” No, we did not. Here’s what the word means to sales manager David K. England: “When you’re at your best, thing just fall into place. When customers can’t tell you
We all know that prospecting doesn’t rate too high on the ‘fun’ list. It probably rates in the ballpark of public speaking or getting poked in the face with a sharp stick. Sometimes, it feels more like a chore than a positive action for your business. You need to approach prospecting with MOJO. MOJO means
Many agents do not find leaving a message useful but it can generate a call back from a lead you may never have reached otherwise. Mojo is best used for making live contact with your prospects, but you do have the option to leave voicemail messages when an answering machine gets connected to you. Here
