How to become a good salesman by Taylor Armstrong

June 22, 2022

In this episode, I speak to Taylor Armstrong, who specializes in solar sales. Taylor is a solar energy saving expert and a host of the Solarpreneur podcast. Sales and public speaking go hand in hand and as such, a good door-to-door salesman has to have a good understanding of the off-the speech delivery technique.

Besides, they should be able to adapt quick to situations and practice calmness while presenting their ideas. Furthermore, Taylor reveals that as a salesman, you should be able to build rapport with your clients so that they can trust the product you are bringing to them thus making the process easier. Tune in to listen to these and much more!
