Are You Valuable?

Posted in Advice  |  17 Comments

Do your actions…

  1. create a positive buzz about you and your work?
  2. make others want you as a part of their team?
  3. make your employer cringe at the thought of losing you to a competitor?
  4. make your customers excited about referring you to their colleagues?

You want your actions to scream value without the need for you to say a word. This is where you want to be – with those in your company and industry – and with those to whom you’re selling.

This is what creates true economic and job security – the value you and your team create for others.

This is care (what it’s all about).

When you have the opportunity over the next few days, set a reminder to review these four questions at the end of each month. Then, give yourself a little attention by reviewing them and creating an action plan to improve in each area where you feel you should.

Easier said than done… still needs to be done.

    I was once told that someone who wants to strive for the next challenge should work for the job, position etc. that isn’t attained yet. I totally agree. We must add value outside of traditional means which are dictated by our current title.

    No man is indispensable, but some are irreplaceable. Key is to manage your visibility. It’s not enough to be the best, to reach your targets and to provide value to your customers. Your management and customers should also KNOW you’re doing all this, so make sure your efforts get recognized.

    I recently heard about this site from a friend to see what Just Sell was all about. This article about “Are you Valuable” not only had a catchy title to make me want to read it, but offered some good information. I will definitely use this for a self evaluation for marketing in Los Angeles, but for future employees.

    This article is spot on. Instead of focusing on being the most valuable salesperson, you should focus on being the salesperson with the most value. Everythign else will fall into place over time.

    I believe that to be invaluable as a sales proffesional, it is imperative to be valued by your team and employers/employees. However, to be valued by your prospect/customer is invaluable. Happy customers create referrals. Referrals create revenue. Everyone happy.

    Seems solid, however the positive buzz is really a case by case scenario. What it should be replaced with is the whole idea of standing out. Personally I can’t stand those sales reps that reek of fake happyness and over-compensating enthusiasm. and thats what alot of people come off as when they put on this whole positive attitude mask.
