Service Description

At the point that I realized that songwriting was probably not going to shelter and feed my family, I turned my skill set to commercial writing. Not having the credentials get work in advertising or marketing and needing the flexibility to continue my writing, I found myself in the trenches as a sales representative for a variety of products and services over the years. With each opportunity came the challenges of developing the compelling reasons for prospects to see me, hear me out, and act. My key to initiating this process was the persuasive letter. A brief correspondence that created the desire and requested a meeting. As I learned, over the years, what people were actually looking for, I developed more concise value propositions and my closing ratio was consistently well over 50% and typically above 80%, making money for all involved. With Toyota Industrial Equipment, I was the National Sales and Product Trainer, working directly with the marketing department and over 300 sales staff across the US to present the profitability of investing in our equipment. I am well versed in consultative/collaborative selling as well as one call transactional sales. I enjoy the "Hunt" and the "Kill", and have a passion for the written picture. You won't be disappointed.
