Publisher's Summary

A rainmaker is a person who brings revenue into an organization. That revenue comes from customers, it is the lifeforce of the organization, and without it the organization will die. That revenue is rain. Big-hitting rainmakers are among the highest-paid employees in every company in every industry. They operate under many titles: owner, partner, sales representative, CEO, agent, managing director, and fund-raiser. Jeffrey Fox is a rainmaker who knows revenue production from the inside out and knows how to talk about it. In sharp, witty style, he pursues revenues and takes you along for the ride. This hard-hitting collection of sales and marketing advice is packed with 50 smart, no-nonsense tips that teach you how to woo and win any customer. Fox offers surprising, sometimes daring wisdom that will help you rise above the competition. You'll learn the Rainmaker's Credo, the 6 killer sales questions, why breakfast meetings bring rain, and the critical technique of dollarizing your product. If becoming a rainmaker is your goal - selling books or boxcars, computers or cough drops, or anything in between - this program is for you.

Short effective parables on selling

Fox offers "two-page" principles with examples throughout this two hour audio book. Not only does it help you refocus your efforts for more effective sales calls, it does so in short, "car-ride friendly" chapters. Not only are most of the lessons applicable right away, but it also made me a more discriminating customer.

Most important lessons are "The customer doesn't care about you," "Pre-sales call planning," "Dollarize," and even a great lesson on how to properly leave a voice mail.

This should be one of many (read: not the only) tool in your sales AND customer service tool box.
