yarn_ballI’m willing to bet that at least once in your sales career, when you were at a low point or stuck in the middle of a seemingly unsolvable problem, you’ve called on the advice of your favorite sales expert, thought leader, or author. Maybe a certain quote or insight has always resonated with you, and you read it from time to time for inspiration.

The following SlideShare deck, from LinkedIn Sales Solutions, takes that habit and brings it into hyper drive. The next time you’re craving a fresh perspective or need a quick confidence boost, page through these slides until you find just the right phrase. The presentation is chock full of valuable tidbits from the veritable sales A-list: Reid Hoffman, Jeffrey Gitomer, Jeff Bezos, Zig Ziglar, Jill Konrath, Ken Krogue -- they’re all in here.

A few of my personal favorites:

1) “Selling to people who actually want to hear from you is more effective than interrupting strangers that don’t.” – Seth Godin (Click To Tweet)

2) “It is the cold that is dead -- not the calling.” – Trish Bertuzzi (Click To Tweet)

3) “You don’t close a sale, you open a relationship if you want to build a long-term, successful enterprise.” – Patricia Fripp (Click To Tweet)

Take a look and tweet your favorite as a kind of virtual bookmark.
