Conventional wisdom tells us that when approaching a prospect we should tiptoe carefully so we don’t put our prospect off or get rejected, but Ian Price, a business psychologist specialising in the science of sales performance, says different. In this interview with Ian, an honorary fellow of the Association of Professional Sales, he explains that psychology informs us that we should actively seek rejection in sales – and shows us how to go about it.

Deep article but tons of logic out of it. Not bad! Voted up man.

Erik: Have you listened to my conversation with Jon Ferrara of Nimble? I think social selling is the way to go.

If you can't take rejection, the a career in sales isn't for you. And if you can't be persistent after the first no, the same goes.

Being willing to be rejected is the key factor in whether someone is good at sales or not. People who avoid conflict and rejection are better off doing something different.

Great article, thanks for sharing Erik. This is something that I have never thought of myself and I know of some other people will find useful. Will share it across my network.

Being persistent at sales is definitely not my 'forte'. I know that's something I need to work on, but I find it incredibly awkward to do sales pitches. I'll have to implement some of the tips in this article and see how it works out for me.

Hi Erik, thanks for the share, love this one as I've been in sales almost 30 years, it is so true about being ignored vs rejected. Persistence really does pay off!
