Sales Pro Deep Dive🕵🏼‍♂️

Marcus Chan’s Venli Consulting Group launched to mega success, but that didn’t happen overnight. This is his secret!

Marcus Chan, Founder of Venli Consulting Group

Marcus Chan is the founder of Venli Consulting Group, and a member of the Forbes Business Council; the latter, a council of proven business leaders and executives from across the world who have been recognized by Forbes for excellence in their fields. As you’ve seen in the subject, Chan pulled 500 clients, made $10 million, and did it all in three years as head of Venli Consulting Group, coaching sales pros in the B2B space. We researched Chan to find out if there’s a method to this crazy level of success, and it just so happens that there is.

Marcus Chan, Here’s How He Did It…

  • Doing the groundwork: Before he was a top voice in sales on LinkedIn, Chan started out doing B2B sales in the start-up division. His job was to pick up industrial contracts and persuade companies that were basically falling apart; basically, he learned persuasion the hard way!

  • Gathering experience: After about four promotions, he transitioned into another job in industrial laundry. He went from sales rep to sales leader, to sales director, and spent years mastering the role of managing hundreds of employees.

  • Recognize opportunities: Nine years later, after delivering over $200 million in sales, Chan used his experience and skills to branch off and start his own thing (Venli Consulting Group) – maybe you’ve heard of it!

Close More Sales, At A Faster Rate With Relationship Selling

Relationship selling is a highly effective technique employed by sales representatives, where establishing and nurturing a genuine connection with the customer takes precedence over other aspects of the sale.

This approach revolves around building trust, typically accomplished by adding value and investing significant time with prospects.

By prioritizing rapport building and focusing on meeting the customer's needs, relationship sellers foster a foundation of trust and loyalty. Rather than rushing to close the deal, they recognize the importance of developing strong relationships that endure beyond the immediate transaction. In doing so, they not only maximize sales opportunities but also cultivate long-term customer satisfaction and loyalty.

Top Ways To Nail Relationship Selling

  1. Build Rapport

    To build rapport, sales reps typically practice active listening to successfully uncover prospects’ needs and form a relationship.

  2. Include Custom Personalization

    If they feel like the experience isn’t personalized, prospects are unlikely to purchase an expensive product.

  3. Check In Often

    Staying in touch with future and past customers ensures you’ll be the first person they think of when they need to buy or recommend your product.

  4. Be Proactive

    Proactively let them know of exciting developments at your organization.

  5. Do Your Research

    Before a call or email, be sure to check out their social media accounts to learn more about them.
