The book series, Eat This, Not That, developed from a column in Men’s Health Magazine and was written by David Zinczenko and Matt Goulding. I have flipped through one of the ETNT books and have seen David being interviewed. The idea was to have a very easy way to see what TO eat and what NOT TO eat. They used pictures (which is why I liked it, I’m sure as I’m extremely visual).
I always think about those books when I’m working with a group of new sales reps who are using common wrong words and phrases in their attempts to message buyers they hope will become prospective clients.
In that spirit I bring to you the first edition of “SALES: SAY THIS, NOT THAT!” and would welcome your own suggestions for what to say and what not to say. Let’s make a giant list and help all the SDRs and BDRs and new reps to ramp up quicker.
