Overcoming Creative Funks & Blocks in Selling

In the world of selling, creative funks and blocks are not uncommon. Whether you're struggling to come up with new ideas or finding it challenging to land sales, it's important to recognize these moments and take steps to overcome them.

Read on for tips on how to overcome Creative Funks and Blocks in Selling

Creative Funks

  • Revisit Old Content: Sometimes, the best way to move forward is to take a step back. Go back to old content that you love and repurpose!

  • Stimulate Your Mind: Watch documentaries, interviews, sports, or anything that sparks your curiosity. This will help you think outside the box and approach your sales strategy from a fresh angle.

  • Listen to Podcasts: Explore podcasts that discuss abstract concepts or teach you something new.

  • Move Your Body: Physical activity is a powerful tool to climb out of creative funks. Take a break, go for a run, or engage in any form of physical activity that gets your blood pumping.

  • Embrace Spontaneity: Go live on your preferred platform with no agenda other than connecting with your audience through a Q&A session.

Blocks in Selling

  • Reflect on Past Successes: When facing selling blocks, revisit past testimonials and reviews. Recognizing your achievements can boost confidence and motivate you to overcome current challenges.

  • Check-In with Clients: Reach out to your existing clients to inquire about their well-being. Offering support and being of service not only strengthens your client relationships but can also provide valuable insights into areas where you can improve or innovate.

  • Offer Something Free: Break through selling blocks by promoting something free. This not only attracts potential clients but also allows you to showcase your expertise.

  • Set Challenges: Create challenges for yourself to set new goals and targets. Challenge yourself to make a specific number of sales within a set timeframe.

  • Seek Mentorship: If you haven't already, consider getting a mentor. A mentor can provide guidance, support, and a fresh perspective on your selling challenges.

Creative funks and selling blocks are part of the journey in the world of sales. The key is to recognize them, address them head-on, and use them as opportunities for growth and improvement. Remember, success often comes from the ability to adapt and innovate in the face of challenges.
