Genre: Business
Links: Amazon US   UK   Canada   Australia

You will learn how to probe a customer's needs and turn them into a powerful tool for helping them decide to make the right decision – getting your product.

Each and every salesman is unique – most of the time, they develop their own strategies that are tailor-fit for their niche. However, some people create strategies that are noticeably less successful than others. In the world of consultative selling, a failed strategy – weak rapport, improper impression, incomplete probing – could easily result in a failed sale. There are also those who bank on simple product knowledge, drawing on their ability to spew out the product specifications at a moment's notice. This and other wrong moves would not fare well and could easily get one trampled by other salesmen with better pitches.

One difficulty is that there is no real handbook to consultative selling – until this came along. With this book, we are helping you get a good grip of the ropes of this trade, making sure that you are properly equipped with a winning mindset and a penetrating spiel that will appeal to customers – both from above and below the ranks.

I provide the guide in this book – you make the sale and the profit!

Here is a Preview of What You'll Learn...

  • How to Ask Great Questions

  • About Consultative Selling

  • How to Probe More About What Customers Need and How Your Product Can Be Helpful for Them

Q&A With Author Jennifer Lewis About Her Free Book - A Christmas Wedding


What was the inspiration for your book?
The book evolved in my mind while I was writing my "Desert Kings" series. I love how Christmas has become so inclusive that even people who didn't grow up with it, or who live in cultures that haven't traditionally celebrated it, are joining in the fun.
How did you come up with the title?
I wanted to let readers know what the story is about, so they'd pick up the book if they like Christmas and Weddings, LOL
Share with us a fun fact about your book.
I had intended for this book to be a lot shorter but it ran away with me :-)
Tell us about the setting.
The story is set in the royal palace of Ubar, the country where my Desert Kings series takes place. It's a remote country, ringed by mountains, that has had very little contact with the outside world. I was inspired by Oman, where I have set two Harlequin novels, as I imagined my county.
Introduce us briefly to the main characters.
The main characters in the series are Osman, Zadir, and Amahd - three brothers who have recently inherited the kingdom. Samantha (Sam) and Veronica (Ronnie) are the new wives of the first two brothers, and they're celebrating their weddings in this book. Sam and Osman's romance takes place primarily in "Desert Kings: Osman: Rescued by the Sheikh" and Zadir and Ronnies is in the free story "Desert Kings: Veronica: Stranded with the Sheikh" and the book "Desert Kings: Zadir: Bought for the Sheikh." Amahd's book is coming, as is another story about their half brother Gibran.
Who is your favorite character in your book and why?
That's impossible to say! They all feel like my children :-) Perhaps I have a special soft spot for Ronnie as she's naturally rather shy and solitary like me.
What is the conflict in the story?
Both Sam and Ronnie come from rather crazy show business families. Sam's parents are Hollywood actors, used to stealing the show, and  Ronnie's mom is a former singing diva who's never forgiven Ronnie's father for divorcing her. They're both terrified that the parents they love and desperately want at their weddings will somehow derail them. Then there are loose goats, butterflies and invasive mistletoe to worry about!
What makes this book a great read?
It's fun and festive, with romance and suspense and humor - a little something for everyone.

Lachlan Smith doesn’t think of himself as a hero. His father lived a heroic life, and died an even more heroic death. Locksmith has no ambitions to do the first, and absolutely refuses to do the second.


Fortunately, his family has just moved into a new neighborhood, where he meets a boy named Gary. Gary has conquered legions of the undead, hordes of enemy aliens… wait, we’re not counting video games? Guess he’s not much of a hero either, then.


But everything changes when Lock investigates a strange noise in the closet of his new bedroom… and discovers a portal to another world. It a vast, steaming jungle, full of ruins and devoid of all human habitation. It is a dangerous world with many predators, from giant feral dogs to swarms of hungry rats. It is our world, many years from now, when the human species has gone extinct.

Lock and his friend Gary experiment with the portal, and find that by making small changes in the present, they can alter the future. But can they make the biggest change of all? Can they discover what happened — or will happen — in time to prevent it?

And where did the portal come from? Why is it in his closet? Why did the previous owner of this house disappear without a trace? And who is the strange man who has made himself an enemy of Lock's family, insisting that the house belongs to him and that he will stop at nothing to get it?

Lock and Gary are not heroes — yet. But the adventure they have chosen will test them as they have never been tested before. They'll need all their intelligence, courage and will to save themselves — and everybody else.

First Christmas: Emma and Robert were still newlyweds, having been married seven months prior in May in a beautiful spring wedding. Emma was especially happy about all the first things they could do as a newlywed couple – first Halloween, first Thanksgiving and best of all, their first Christmas in their home in Chicago. However a week before Christmas, Robert was sent to New York City for work. All Emma wanted for Christmas was for Robert to be home and it looked like it wasn’t going to happen. Robert was disappointed too – he wanted to spend their first Christmas together and never anticipated being stuck in an airport on such an important Christmas.

A Christmas Wish: After fifteen years in the advertising business, Julie Francis was still feeling the pinch of deadlines created by the holiday season. In spite of this, she had an eventful Christmas Eve in New York City before helping her husband Mark decorate the Christmas tree.
