Is your sales approach earning you a throat punch? Don’t pitch slap people! On this week’s episode of Banking On Experience, CRMNEXT’s James Gilbert sits down with Amy Downs- CEO of Allegiance Credit Union, Keynote Speaker, and Author to discuss the dos and don’ts of sales pitches.

What’s covered?

· The story behind her CUInsight Article, entitled “Can I throat punch you?” (Trust us. If you haven’t read it, you should.)

· How sales pitches have evolved during the pandemic and the direction they should be heading.

· Amy’s expert advice on the real way to get sales: taking time to build relationships.

· What it really means to connect and to provide value.

· What Credit Unions can do to be more personal and to make sure relationships are being built. (Hint: calm down, care and connect.)

· Amy’s examples of companies that are doing it right.

· The value of studying organizations before going straight to the c-level (an old-school approach that might not be to your advantage.)

· And the best way to reach out to Amy? Go to Amazon and buy her book, “Hope Is a Verb” (about how she survived the Oklahoma City bombing), and then reach out to her.
