Publisher's Summary

Ditch the failed sales tactics, fill your pipeline, and crush your number.

Fanatical Prospecting gives salespeople, sales leaders, entrepreneurs, and executives a practical, eye-opening guide that clearly explains the why and how behind the most important activity in sales and business development: prospecting.

The brutal fact is that the number one reason for failure in sales is an empty pipe, and the root cause of an empty pipeline is the failure to consistently prospect. By ignoring the muscle of prospecting, many otherwise competent salespeople and sales organizations consistently underperform.

Step by step, Jeb Blount outlines his innovative approach to prospecting that works for real people in the real world with real prospects.

Learn how to keep the pipeline full of qualified opportunities and avoid debilitating sales slumps by leveraging a balanced prospecting methodology across multiple prospecting channels.

This book reveals the secrets, techniques, and tips of top earners. You'll learn:

  • Why the 30-Day Rule is critical for keeping the pipeline full
  • Why understanding the Law of Replacement is the key to avoiding sales slumps
  • How to leverage the Law of Familiarity to reduce prospecting friction and avoid rejection
  • The 5 C's of Social Selling and how to use them to get prospects to call you
  • How to use the simple 5-Step Telephone Framework to get more appointments fast
  • How to double callbacks with a powerful voice mail technique
  • How to leverage the powerful 4-Step Email Prospecting Framework to create emails that compel prospects to respond
  • How to get text working for you with the 7-Step Text Message Prospecting Framework
  • And so much more!

Fanatical Prospecting is filled with the high-powered strategies, techniques, and tools you need to fill your pipeline with high quality opportunities.

In the most comprehensive book ever written about sales prospecting, Jeb Blount reveals the real secret to improving sales productivity and growing your income fast. You'll gain the power to blow through resistance and objections, gain more appointments, start more sales conversations, and close more sales.

Break free from the fear and frustration that is holding you and your team back from effective and consistent prospecting. It's time to get off the feast or famine sales roller coaster for good!

not bad but not great

Solid book but didn't really have much juice. The first half of the book was decent with some pretty interesting insights about getting more prospecting calls done. The rest was pretty much Jeb going on with (what seemed like) anecdotal evidence for what works well and what doesn't. Some data driven insights on what good prospecting looks like would be much more valuable in my humble opinion. Worth a read but not an all time classic.

Change The Way You Prospect

I recently had an awful interaction with a sales “guru” in my local area.

His “techniques” left such a sour taste in my mouth, that I searched out some great sales material.

This book is it!

Jeb is full of inspiring coaching to get you to be a better salesperson, as well as practical tips to overcome the most difficult situations you’ll face.

Highly recommended!

Great listen if you are serious about increasing sales/income/. It's all too easy to convince yourself that you are doing all you can. Jeb's narrative is direct, current and relevant. Approach the book with an open mind and be prepared to learn. Highly recommend.

"There's book on everything you want to learn" Jeb Blount

And if you want to learn about prospecting that's your book. Easy to follow step by step plan for every business. 1 year free subscription to Jeb's members only forum is worth 100x the price of this book.
