In sales, nothing is more important than prospecting. Yet many salespeople don’t prospect, because the process can be so painful. Now, help is at hand. Former sales superstar and master prospecting expert Jeb Blount teaches salespeople how to minimize the pain and become effective, productive sales prospectors. He explains his proven, productive system for prospecting. He covers all of the expected prospecting channels – emails, phone calls, social media, networking, and so on. Blount understands prospecting and has a lot of concrete information to share. getAbstract recommends his manual to salespeople and sales managers.

In this summary, you will learn

  • Why prospecting is essential to sales;
  • Why many salespeople don’t prospect;
  • What traits distinguish the sales superstars who do;
  • How to use the “three core laws of prospecting”;
  • How CRM systems fuel sales success; and
  • How to prospect by phone, by email and through social selling.   

About the Author

The author of seven books, Jeb Blount is a sales acceleration specialist who helps sales organizations quickly reach peak performance. 




Many supposed sales experts claim prospecting is passé. These self-proclaimed authorities are almost always talking heads preoccupied with “inbound marketing, Sales 2.0” and “social selling.” Their pitch to salespeople is, “Never cold call again!” Of course, they’re wrong.
