Mastering the World of Selling and Mastering the World of Marketing

TR Garland, Best-selling Author, Speaker, & Referral Marketing Strategist
Building The Ultimate Network
Read and internalize the lessons in [Zero-Time Selling]. Most companies fail as a result of lack of attention to sales. Sounds obvious, but over time, what makes companies successful is their ability to adapt their sales model. Quality products and services aside, serving the customer’s ‘strategic intent’ – what they really want and value in your products or services – is hard work. And it’s an imperative in the connected world within which we all operate.
