💎 In order to be an impactful salesperson, the first thing to remember is that Sales is a people to people business. Watch the video to the end to learn some tips that’ll take your sales skills to a new level!
📼 What makes you an effective and impactful salesperson? Play this video to get three top tips to learn a different side of your clients, master the art of handling objections, and demonstrate value. You'll hear from Clara Sierra, Senior Director, Business Development, Global Sales at Moody's.
📼Top tips to become an impactful salesperson #1: Become an expert on your client. A lot of clients use LinkedIn and Twitter to promote their brands. Not only use their website or google them but make sure to go into their Twitter account, follow their teammates, and their executives, looking at what they post and what they comment on Twitter and LinkedIn. This will help you to know a different side of your clients you can use to get them excited about your product.
📼 Top tips to become an impactful salesperson #2: Master the art of handling objections. Clara uses the “Feel / Felt / Found” method: when a client presents her with objections, such as “your solution is too expensive”, or “I don't need it. I don't want it. It doesn't work for me”, she will typically say, “I see how can feel that way. I have other clients who have felt that way also, but here's what we've found in order to make this solution meaningful to their business.” When you approach them from this angle,, the client who's delivering the objection feels seen. Using the “Feel / Felt / Found” method really opens up the conversation and gets you to the next stage of selling!
Become An Impactful Salesperson - Tip #3: Add Value And Tell Stories
Adding value and telling stories is so important in the sales experience, not just for your client, but for you also. You don't want to be seen as only a transactional salesperson. You want to think about the client experience. What is your product or solution going to do for your client? You want to be able to wrap a story around, what some of your other clients have found and how your product has helped them in their business. The key is to continue to expand the conversation, adding value to your client's experience and telling stories.

💎 Stand out at your job interview with Mindbody with these tips from the company's recruiters! Watch the video to the end to learn everything you need to know about Mindbody’s interview process.
📼 Get ready for your interview with Mindbody! Shamerah Concepcion, Talent Acquisition Recruiter at ClassPass, now a part of MindBody, and Katy Joy, Recruiter & Program Manager at Mindbody, share some insights into how to best prepare to stand out in the interview process.
📼 Research before your interview with Mindbody. The first thing Shamerah recommends is taking a look at their website, digging around there, and getting a little bit of insight. Check out some YouTube videos. Make sure you understand who they are as a company and what they do. The next step Shamerah mentions is not to be afraid to cold outreach. Take a look at their LinkedIn page, find someone that's currently in that position that you're looking to do, message them, set up a time to speak with them, and really gain some insight on a one-on-one on what a typical day looks like what their journey was to get in that role and future career opportunities.
📼 During your interview with Mindbody, when you get asked questions about your skills and competencies, Katy says the more specific the examples you're referencing, the better. Most of the questions at Mindbody are going to be behavioral in nature. Don't be afraid to pause and take a beat to think about a relevant example that you're referencing. She would also recommend trying to draw on a diverse range of examples from past experiences. That shows that you're versatile and have a really diverse range of skill sets that you can bring to the table.
Interview Process At Mindbody
There are four stages. First, the recruiter will be screening resumes in the system; if they see a candidate whose skills and abilities match what they're looking for in the role, they'll reach out and set up a phone conversation. From there, most roles do have a take-home assessment of some sort but don't worry, you'll be fully briefed on that before the recruiter sends it over. Once that's completed, the recruiter will touch base with the hiring team. If they decide to proceed, then the hiring manager will get set up with a 30-minute Zoom interview. If the hiring manager decides to move to the final interview, that will be a Zoom interview with the rest of the team that the role is going to be interacting with.
