You're Killing Your Customers: The 7 Deadly Sins Of Sales

Posted by Julia Manoukian on Jul 17, 2016 11:00:00 AM

seven-deadly-sins-sales.jpgWhat's worse than not hitting your quota? Killing relationships with customers, that's what.

According to SalesLoft, some of the worst things sales pros can do include talking the talk but not walking the walk, ignoring the customer and being overly pushy. If you don't believe us, check out this recent blog we posted.

Sunday is a great day to gear up for the week — and for many of us, that means setting some goals. If you're guilty of one (or more...) of these seven deadly sins, we suggest reevaluating your tactics to bring your customers (and your quota) back to life. Enjoy.
