How NOT to Prospect: The Problem with Bait and Switch Sales

How NOT to Prospect: The Problem with Bait and Switch Sales

If you’ve been spending any time on Facebook or LinkedIn lately, you might have had the displeasure of getting bombarded by bait-and-switch, self-serving sales techniques. 

It’s a style of lead generation I don’t recommend – it lacks integrity and a mindset of serving people while also making you totally un-referrable. 

How do we generate leads in such a way that even people who aren’t a good fit still want to maintain a relationship with us? 

In this episode, I’m going to share a recent experience I had with a sales pitch, and how this approach can harm your business.

Watch the Full Episode:

"Act out of integrity and being of service. If you act from a completely self-serving space, you’ll miss out on opportunities to be referred."
