The Secrets to Scaling Sales: Unveiling the Genius of LJ Sarkodee (Sales Closers)




When it comes to mastering the game of high-ticket sales and successful outsourcing, few people bring as much experience and insight to the table as Laura-Jane Sarkodee. Founder of Sales Closers, a remote sales closing agency with over $30 million in sales to its name, LJ has climbed the ladder from corporate sales executive to freelance sales closer, and now, a successful entrepreneur. We had the pleasure of sitting down with her recently, and what unfolded was an enlightening conversation packed with actionable insights for any entrepreneur or sales professional.

Mastering High-Ticket Sales

Perhaps one of the most valuable segments of our conversation centered around LJ’s approach to high-ticket sales. Her best advice? "Know your client inside out." LJ emphasized that being intimately familiar with your client's needs, fears, and desires is the most effective way to position your product as the solution they've been looking for. High-ticket sales aren't just about the transaction; it's about building long-term relationships based on trust and value.

The Outsourcing Epiphany

If you're an entrepreneur who's been hesitating to outsource your sales, you'll find LJ's insights particularly reassuring. She openly shared her initial fears around letting go of control. "What if they don't understand my ideal client?" she wondered. "What if they can't answer the questions and the sales plummet?"

LJ's fears were not unfounded, but they were unfounded. Her turning point came when she hired her first sales representative—a smart, savvy individual who proved that it's possible to represent your brand perfectly when given the right training and guidance. The secret? Rigorous training and alignment with your brand's voice and values.

Employee vs Commission-Only Sales Closer

During our conversation, LJ brought up a fascinating distinction between a salaried sales employee and a commission-only sales closer. The latter is not just about logging in hours; it's about results. LJ stressed that commission-only closers bring a different energy and drive to the table, factors that can drastically impact the number of successful closes.

Nuggets of Wisdom

LJ offered a plethora of advice throughout our chat. When asked what advice she would give to her 18-year-old self, she responded, "Your journey is a marathon, not a sprint. Take your time to learn, grow, and savor the experiences."

And let's not forget about the myths. Many think of sales as a field dominated by fast talkers and smooth operators. LJ was quick to debunk this: "The best salespeople are great listeners. They build connections, foster trust, and offer genuine solutions."
