The Blogger Genius Podcast with Jillian Leslie


Aug 9, 2023

In today's episode, I delved into a topic that many people find uncomfortable - selling your own products and services.

The Fear of Selling

Firstly, let's address the elephant in the room - the fear and anxiety that often accompany the selling process. It's not uncommon to feel this way, but it's crucial to understand that selling is not a reflection of your self-worth. Instead, it's an opportunity to learn, grow, and provide value to others.

Many people fear selling because they worry about being pushy or coming across as salesy. They may fear rejection or feel uncomfortable with the idea of promoting themselves or their products. These fears can hold them back from reaching their full potential and achieving their business goals.

However, it's important to remember that selling is an essential part of running a successful business. Without sales, it's challenging to generate revenue and sustain your business in the long term. So, instead of letting fear hold you back, it's time to embrace the selling process and discover effective strategies that can make it easier and more rewarding.

Five Strategies to Make Selling Easier

In the podcast, I shared five strategies that can make selling less daunting and more effective.

  1. Believe in the Value of Your Product or Service: The first step to making selling easier is to truly believe in the value of what you're offering. Take the time to understand the unique benefits and solutions your product or service provides to your customers. When you genuinely believe in the value you offer, it becomes easier to communicate that value to others and overcome any doubts or fears you may have.
  2. Know Your Audience: Understanding your target audience is crucial for effective selling. Take the time to research and identify who your ideal customers are, what their needs and pain points are, and how your product or service can address those needs. By tailoring your sales approach to resonate with your audience, you can make your pitch more compelling and increase your chances of success.
  3. Practice and Refine Your Selling Skills: Selling is a skill that improves with practice. Don't be afraid to make mistakes and learn from them. Role-play sales scenarios, practice your pitch, and seek feedback from trusted friends or mentors. The more you practice, the more comfortable and confident you will become in your selling abilities.
  4. Frame Selling as a Way to Help Others: Shift your mindset and view selling as a way to solve problems and help others. Instead of focusing on making a sale, focus on understanding your customers' needs and how your product or service can genuinely benefit them. By approaching selling with a mindset of service and value, you can build trust and establish long-term relationships with your customers.
  5. Use Tools to Streamline the Process: Take advantage of tools and resources that can simplify the selling process. For example, MiloTree Cart provides a user-friendly platform that allows you to easily set up and manage your online store. With features like customizable product pages, secure payment processing, and automated order management, you can focus on selling without getting bogged down by technical complexities.
