You know “selling shyness,” right?
Even if you might not have called it that. Chances are that you know.
“Selling shyness” feels like hesitation. Nervousness. Or just less confidence than normal when you’re talking to potential clients.
It’s what “winging it” feels like. When you’re not totally sure you’re doing something right.
Selling shyness says, “I’m just not a salesperson.”
Selling shyness says, “They’ll never say yes to that price.”
Do you know what it’s like?
I know it well.
“Selling shyness” could characterize the first few years of my business.
Selling shyness was there when I maneuvered every prospect call so my business partner was on it with me. She was the talker, not me.
When I went off on my own, selling shyness was there when, about 30 minutes before every call, I’d start hoping that they’d cancel.
It was there when a client I really wanted stopped returning my emails, and I figured I had done something wrong (because why would they want to work with me anyway?).
What’s maddening about selling shyness is that it happens to people like us who are so capable at the work we do, but when it comes to selling, we feel so… different.
What’s even more maddening? Selling shyness keeps you from making money.
Because when you have “selling shyness,” you don’t just feel gross talking to potential clients. You act differently too.
You’re not your awesome, comfortable self. You’re not as personable. You don’t come off like the badass you are.
And that translates to clients who take forever to sign on, fewer clients wanting to work with you, and lower prices.
And that equals broke.
