Here's a quick tip that can really increase your ability to move a sale forward, especially if you're new to selling. Many jobs have a characteristic “voice” — a way of speaking (tonality, rhythm, vocabulary, tempo) that identifies the speaker as a member of that profession. One of the easiest ways to spot a newbie salesperson is that they've got that irritating salesman's voice. It's a bit more difficult to describe, but it's breezy, filled with false excitement, and sounds slightly staged, as if the speaker has rehearsed a script.
