Sales Lessons for Life -- What Story Has To Do With It

Does life teach us about selling or does selling teach us about life? No doubt, it works both ways. But the business of sales and those who find their careers in selling, are unique. Selling involves full engagement and the most successful salespeople agree that they never really leave it; that selling is in fact, a way of life.


Here is what I love about this SlideShare file:

  1. It is a great example of visual storytelling using compelling, engaging photos that evoke emotion and curiosity.
  2. Several points made in the tips focus on storytelling elements that create engagement -- like listening.
  3. Key messages are crisp and clear.
  4. The message is on building relationships -- a critical product of sharing stories.


The presentation in and of itself does not follow classic story structure. But the advice is solid and familiar. The tips are great reminders for creating success and gaining more sales.  And who couldn't use that occasionally? 


And take some lessons here on visual storytelling for your next presentation!

10 Steps To Designing An Amazing [Storied] Infographic

10 Steps To Designing An Amazing [Storied] Infographic | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it
Information can be useful--and even beautiful--but only when it’s presented well. In an age of information overload, any guidance through the clutter comes as a welcome relief. That’s one reason for the recent popularity of information graphics.


Got data? Need it to tell a story? Then make sure you read this article about constructing a storied infographic. An infographic is one visual storytelling method.


Yes, there are graphics tips here for us non-graphics people like "Choosing a Format". But the majority of the article is about effective storytelling with data. Like tips on "Finding the Narrative" and "Identifying Problems" (essential to a good story) to locating the "Hero" or key message.


And I like how the author, Josh Smith, dicusses determining a visual approach.


In the end, having graphic design skills seems necessary to do this type of visual storytelling well. 


Yet I think that there are plenty of ways to use the tips in this article to take simple data in our work and turn it into visually inspiring pieces without being a graphic designer. 


So take these tips and play/experiment with the simple tools we do have available to us non-graphic biz folks: PowerPoint, MSPublisher, Excel, Keynote, Prezi, and the like.
