#554: Proven Webinar Selling Strategies That Aren’t Sleazy Or Pushy with Colin Boyd
Learn to communicate in a way that converts with one of the top virtual selling experts
I’ll be honest – I don’t think selling, or pitching, comes easily to anyone.
Even if you’re a super confident and likable person, communicating in a way that converts is a skill that most people really need to dedicate time to learning, especially when you’re selling virtually.
Long ago, when I first started hosting webinars, I dreaded the time that I had to start pitching. The last thing I wanted to do was come off as pushy, so I would get a lot of anxiety around promoting my products.
It’s gotten easier with time, but man-oh-man do I wish this learning curve is something I could have fast-tracked!
That’s why I invited Colin Boyd to the show. He advises some of the biggest names in the world to confidently offer value and create webinars that convert, and in this episode, he’s spilling his strategies!
In this episode, Colin shares:
- Why selling is all about helping your audience make a decision
- Tangible ways to become more confident when you sell
- How to successfully pitch without sounding pushy or salesy
- What a conversion story is and how you can identify yours
… Plus so much more! So if the thought of pitching during your webinar has your stomach in knots, be sure to tune into this episode because it’s packed full of strategies that will help you sell like a pro.
