J. Douglas Edwards is the man who first introduced Tom Hopkins to professional selling. He was the sales trainer of the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. He trained over 200,000 salespeople a year for over 20 years. Hired by corporations around the world, Mr. Edwards began a crusade to change the image of the stereotypical salesperson that Tom Hopkins carries forward today. 

In The Real Mad Men of Sales, you'll learn:

  • Assumptive tie-down test closes that let you know if they're moving toward the sale or not
  • How to properly handle a situation where there is a time lag with no way to close the product sale on the first visit
  • The power of written instructions in sales
  • Seven advanced closing strategies
  • Strategies for enlisting the aid of others in the final close
  • The most powerful single closing method used by top pros around the world
  • How to get the approval when you hear, "I need to talk it over with..."

The God Father of Sales

5 Stars all the way!

I’ve been in the sales game for a decade now and this material even though is “Old School” it is the fundamentals. No fluff, no hype or BS just the fundamentals.

I would recommend this book to seasoned sales people as well as green peas.
