The data doesn't lie: In 2022, over 90% of professionals screen their phone calls and don't pick up an unknown number. Worse, 96% of people now find phone calls disruptive. Communication has changed, and sales messaging matters more than ever before. You and your team's written (and recorded) communications are your most powerful tool to create sales and positive change in your business. A single, properly-worded message has the power to close a deal, attract a new candidate or client, and increase your visibility. Good sales messaging is no longer a "nice to have" in the sales process, it's a NON-NEGOTIABLE - the entire recruiting and sales process cannot start without it. Bad messaging kills your sales. Good messaging makes you big money in your recruiting business. In this session, we'll answer the question: Are you making these deal-killing writing mistakes in your recruiting communications? Featuring new tips & tricks not shared in previous Top Echelon webinars.
9:45 - 10:00 AM

10:00 - 10:45 AM
During this interactive session, we will leverage all of the tips learned during Session 1 and Henna will be auditing REAL emails (submitted by you) in real-time. This is a unique opportunity to have your emails reviewed and audited by a sales copywriting expert (anonymously if you prefer!). You'll watch the strategies be put into action in real-time and have a chance for robust discussion and Q&A.

11:00 AM -12:00 PM
In this new era, the new psychology for recruiting, sales, and revenue growth has changed and we need to take a new approach to earn new customers, increase referrals, and maximize opportunities for partnership and repeat business.
The need for change accelerated quickly during the pandemic, but as ambitious performers who are hungry to meet our potential, we need to adapt - and fast. Buyers are looking for us to add a different type of value as sellers and most of us are still going about it the wrong ways.
Join Keynote Speaker, Executive Coach, and Performance Expert, Henna Pryor, PCC, and learn the concrete strategies for leveraging the NEW psychology of selling going forward - and how to do it right.
By the end of this session, your audience will be able to:
  • Shift away from problem-solving to a more valuable strategy
  • Understand how being the "expert with information access" is hurting you instead of helping
  • Know how to position offerings from several new angles that increase trust and forward motion
  • Learn the new critical keys that buyers need to hear today in order to say yes
