    Hey Masterminders, here's a great teleconference tip:

    Want to see what's happening and who's on our teleconferences, maybe live chat a little? Create a bookmark in your preferred browser so you can see what's happening on the call in one click of your mouse.

    Here's how to set it up in under TWO MINUTES:

    1. Open the link to the teleconference online dashboard (you'll find it in your Member Profile on the membersite).

    2. SAVE it as a bookmark/favorite in your browser of choice. Rename the link when you save it as SoHo Mastermind Teleconference (easier to remember than the long weird link). 

    Voila, you're in, and you don't have to link from your SMM profile every time or desperately search for a way to find us online.

    How cool is that?

    Thanks to Jerry for suggesting this tip!

    Hi Masterminders,

    The audio from today's Lead Generation 1 workshop has been posted in the member area on the Strategies 1 page, AND a bonus: A PDF that outlines my first seven-step follow up sequence that worked like a CHARM!

    Great starting place for developing your follow ups, but keep in mind that if there are any elements that you absolutely won't do, something else must be included because it can't get shorter.

    As Soft Selling creator Jim Lorentzen says: "It isn't weak selling, instead it is a combination of firmness with warmth. Soft Selling is a process that uses a more subtle, casual, or friendly sales message. This approach works in opposition to a hard sell and is less likely to be irritating to a potential client."

    Today's Advanced Strategies call gave us a chance to ask Jim exactly how his soft selling approach differs from traditional sales, and did he ever blow us away with real stories from Soft Selling grads to illustrate his points!!

    Get the audio here, PLUS a link to an excerpt from the Soft Selling Sales Training manual that addresses one of the three biggest mistakes most people make in sales.
