Mindblowing!

Overwhelming when I heard and I was curious to complete it so that I can implement it by putting into action. I must listen to it once again as there are a lot gems in every chapter.

Some gems in here, but don't expect coherence

I love Tony's work, and the core of this audio book is excellent. The performance is fine too. However the writing style is challenging to listen to. The back-to-back metaphors and verbal cliches make me cringe. The content feels like it was compiled from a bunch of blog posts so there is a lot of repetition, and a lack of structure. My advice? Get the physical book so you can bookmark the key bits and skim over the chaff.

Excellent Book

Would you consider the audio edition of Combo Prospecting to be better than the print version?

Did not read the print version.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Combo Prospecting?

Using the "one-two" punch and the fact that the phone is still relevant.

Which character – as performed by Simon Mattacks – was your favorite?

NA

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listened to most of it on a 7 hour road trip.

Any additional comments?

Excellent book and content. It de-mystifies the sales process and is a great guide for sales success.

Helpful, Current New Business Prospecting Read

I've been in sales for over 20 years and this book was well worth the time to read. It is very current and gives helpful, specific tactics to use for successful prospecting, including technology suggestions and communication strategies. Great book!

Some useful content but complete lack of structure

It provide some useful content and insight from several key books on Sales Prospecting and good summary of tools available to help. The book however lacks completely of a structure and narrative sense... It continues to jump over the same things once and again without a clear logic on how to tell and get deeper on them. I ended-up with several disorganised advices and examples, some of them quite useful.

I found It OK as complementary book for Sales Prospecting, although I won't recommend to go for It if you are looking to get a single book on this subject.

Blew my Mind and Changed my Business!

The further I got into this book, the more I heard the words, the more I realised the power. Combo Prospecting has completely changed the way we prospect and sell. The old, "One, Two" followed by a hook - the "Triple" is a game-changer. The message is clear. I'm not going to drop it all here as a spoiler but suffice it to say, if you are in sales (let's face it -we all are in one way or another), if you are a business owner, you need to read this. I even got my DAUGHTERS to read this book!

Simple yet insightful messaging - Executable processes - Effective Systems.

This book has just pushed another one out of my top ten lifetime reads.

Loved it, this explains why some sales people push the envelope, stand out from the crowd. resist the push back from collegues and managers

All about the numbers

This was a bit difficult to listen to. The sales approach is all about the numbers, so probably best fits with a highly transactional B2B sales situation rather than a strategic, long-term client situation.

A must listen!

Probably one of the best books I have heard yet on b2b selling strategies and prospecting. Actually gives you solid practical advice that is useable, this needs to be higher on the sales book list and reviews. Highly recommended

Sales Simplified

What a great book. It outlines a simple program to help you get more sales. This book would be great for the beginner or someone who wants to get to the next level. Tony has done a great job in showing how using the tools available in combo increases the success rate of moving leads to prospects and then onto sales.
