Ep. 132: Evergreen Episode - How To Sell Effectively (Even If You’re An Introvert) Without Feeling Slimy With Sales Expert Nikki Rausch

Interviews, strategy and advice for building your online business with your host Trudy Rankin. 





As a small business owner, do you cringe at the thought of having to sell in your business? Are you just not into sales and don’t like to be pushy with people? 


In this evergreen podcast episode, Trudy interviews Nikki Rausch who has a strong background in sales, with many years of experience.  Nikki started out working in male dominated industries and didn’t feel comfortable using their traditional sales methods.  So she figured out her own way of selling … a way that didn’t include any of the typical characteristics of a pushy salesman.  


Nikki was very successful.  And when she realised that other women business owners just weren’t comfortable with sales, she wanted to use what she’d learned to help them.  Because if you don’t have sales, you don’t have a business.


Nikki now teaches women entrepreneurs how to sell effectively in ways that work AND that they are comfortable with. 


In this podcast Trudy and Nikki talk about – 


  1. The importance of building rapport with potential clients.
  2. The role of scripts and how to tailor those scripts so that they feel comfortable to each individual.
  3. The role the mindset plays in sales. 
  4. Tips to get going with sales when you’ve started to build confidence in your business.
  5. How the Sales Maven Society can help your business.



Trudy Rankin is the host of the Online Business Launchpad Podcast, Director of West Island Digital and the founder of the Online Business Lift-Off program.
