Summary

Forget everything you learned about selling.

Persuasion is not a sales skill - it’s a blunt instrument of last resort that sellers use when they don’t know how to influence the choices their buyers make. It’s the weapon of choice for mindless, uninspired sellers: the sales zombies who have stopped learning and stopped improving. Wouldn’t you rather learn how to master the art of selling in, by listening to what your buyers really want?

In Sell Without Selling Out, global sales guru, top podcaster, and entrepreneur Andy Paul shows you how to take charge of your own career without selling out to outdated, ineffective sales methods. He reveals the four Sell In pillars that are the indispensable instruments of selling: Connection, Curiosity, Understanding, Generosity. Everything else is mostly a combination of product features, technical specifications, and pricing, which your buyers can get from the internet. What they seek (and deserve) can only come from you: the human seller.

If you’ve been told you need to be more “salesy” to get ahead in your career, you need this book.

A departure from most sales books

Most sales books fail to recognize the importance of deep connection with the buyer. These books focus solely on techniques to get the buyer to agree, which leads to a lack of trust, and poor relationships. This book, doubles down on the importance of understanding the point of view of the buyer while emphasizing the relationship being built.

Solid Gold For Anyone Serious About Helping Others

This simplifies everything about what is important in sales at its core and in my perspective, life. Be generous, be kind, be curious, be humble, be disciplined, and help make an impact on the world.

This shared real ways to stick out from the crowd that are actionable and realistic to execute.

Selling in is an act of generosity!

Thank you Andy Paul for creating an audible version of this book!
I’m a fan of his podcasts so I gravitated towards the audible version. It is captivating, entertaining and replete with pragmatic advice for not only new but also seasoned sales people. More importantly it’s a must read (and listen) for Sales Bosses who want to one day grow up to become Sales Leaders.

This should be a must read for any Sales team out there. You’ll be a more aware and conscientious Sales person by the end of it.

Excellent guidance on a modern approach to sales

I really found this book valuable in strengthening some of my own opinions on sales and for bringing clarity and some new approaches for ensuring I am staying true to myself in my sales efforts. Andy’s narration is clearly passionate and heartfelt which adds some real credibility to his message. I highly recommend this for anyone in or around a sales role.

Andy Paul is a great advocate for SaaS sellers!

This book is great! I have the ebook as well but enjoy listening to Andy's voice so decided to buy the audiobook.

He equates Sales to being more of a Trusted Advisor/Consultant. It's important not to be too "salesy" but to understand our buyer and their needs.

I highly recommend this book to anyone that is new to Sales, in particular SaaS and people in the BDR/SDR/AE function.

Great listen 🎧 For Enterprise selling

I liked how Andy laid out the process he’s follows to sell in vs selling out.

He gives relevant examples to each principle.

If you are new to sales or have been in sales for years, you will find value.

I will listen to this again and again.
