3 Ways Sales People Can Use A Camera Phone

by Paul Castain on April 15, 2012

Take Pictures Of Building Directories: If you sell a product or service that pretty much anyone can use, this tip is for you. The next time you have an appointment in a multi tenant building, take a picture of the building directory. Add these companies to your prospecting list when you get back to your desk.

Oh, and I triple dog dare ya to hum the theme from James Bond when you take the picture. Admit it . . . its badass!

Take Pictures Of Some Of Your More Popular Products For An Impromptu Visual Aid: It’s one thing to be in a formal meeting and the need to show product presents itself but what about those impromptu situations like during a networking event, a luncheon, or perhaps a situation where it would just be easier to pull out your phone and show a picture? A picture certainly does say a thousand words!

Note:  Just make sure you don’t accidently have any pictures in there where you’re dressed up like Xena The Warrior Princess (especially if you’re a guy)

Video A “Thank You” To Your Client: Want to add some variety to how you say “thank you”? Want to stand out from everyone else? Change things up by creating a brief 20-30 second customized “thank you” video where they see and hear you being, wait for it . . . YOU!

Super Cool Bonus Tip For You iPhone Dudes/Dudettes: Did you know that you can use your iPhone headphones as a remote control to start and stop your videos (and take pictures too)? Just hit the up volume (+) and you can take a nice steady video or picture.

So there you have it, three super easy sales tips served up fresh via your camera phone!

Anyone have any camera phone ideas we can add to this list?
