I believe that introverts sell as well as anyone else.
You may have seen me on LinkedIn vlogs or YouTube discussing the principles of selling. One thing that you may not know about me is that I am actually quite a shy person. I am an introvert. I learned to sell and am still learning.
Like many introverts, sharing vlogs for the world to see is extremely daunting. I knew I have to overcome my fear. There is an inner drive within me to help others who are interested in selling. The end game is to help people to build the confidence they need in order for them to sell.
It may be a surprise for some to learn this. A lot of coaches I know also said that they are also introverts. A third of people on earth apparently are introverts (Susan Cain, Ted Talk). It takes an enormous amount of energy every time they are promoting in public. There is always this thing at the back of our heads; shyness and fear of rejections.
Introverts like myself learn to adapt. I have been selling as a sales rep and coaching others as a sales manager for a long time. Getting out of my comfort zone constantly. I learned to be disciplined and consistent in the way I convey my message about selling.
At Awake By Five AM, my vision is to reduce the negative perception people has about selling and convince other sales reps from being jerks.
Being an introvert should never be viewed as a disadvantage. As a general view, it can often work in your favor the fact that you are an introvert. You just need to learn basic sales principles.
