The 101 Very Best Free and Paid Tools That Every Salesperson Needs to Use 


ant to know how a select group of ELITE salespeople get consistently amazing sales results without working any harder than anyone else in their industry?

It’s simple; they’ve embraced the Internet and have started using online tools that send their productivity through the roof.

You see, back in the golden days of sales, all it took for someone to be successful was pounding the pavement day after day. The most effective salespeople relied on a huge personal network of buyers and referrals to make the sale. They were constantly on the phone with leads and existing customers.

Productivity was limited to how quickly they could turn the pages on their rolodex or how fast they could go from phone call to phone call.

Then Something Changed! 


ith the advent of the internet, people began to realize that there were better ways to find things. Suddenly buyers started looking online for products and services.

Instead of phoning a friend to get a suggestion on whom to hire, they began to ask their Facebook or Twitter connections. Now prospects were able to collect all of the information they needed to make a purchase decision before they even lifted up the phone and talked to a salesperson.

Even the many companies that still purchased offline were now armed with more information than ever before and loaded with options for choosing the right company.

Today many salespeople are left scratching their heads, still stuck in the old sales mindset, and wondering helplessly where their leads and sales have gone.

Where Have All The Sales Leads Gone? 


ales leads haven’t disappeared. In fact, it’s easier to get leads and make sales now than ever… but only if you know where to look!

We’ve compiled this list of 101 free and paid tools that will turbo charge your sales results and turn you (OR YOUR ENTIRE SALESFORCE) into that small percentage of people who greatly outperform the competition year after year.

You’ll learn about tools, techniques, and even phone apps that:

  • Help find loads of quality prospects.
  • Let you easily stay engaged with prospects until they are ready to buy from you.
  • Keep you organized, efficient, and on top of your customer history.
  • Reduce stress and keep you on track to making record-breaking sales.

These tools will help you with all aspects of the sales process; saving you countless hours and helping you make loads of new sales.  

Will These Tools Work For My Company? 


esyes, and YES!

These tools are universally helpful and nearly all of them can be applied to any industry with great success. Admittedly, all 101 may not be right for your business, but most are!

These tools work:

  • In both Business-to-Business (B2B) and Business-to-Consumer (B2C) sales.
  • For selling products, services, or information.
  • Whether you’re a tiny start-up with a one person sales force or a major corporation with thousands of salespeople.
  • Regardless of your comfort level with computers

The 101 tools every salesperson needs to know about are… 


e’re about to give you a huge selection of tools that will result in huge increases in your productivity, and your bottom line.

Before you do, know that you should not try to implement them all at once.

In fact, using them all would not only be overkill, it would also take up so much of your time that you wouldn’t be able to actually make a sale!

Instead just focus on the few that sound the most helpful right now. Even that small step can make a huge impact on your sales success.

Tools to Find Prospects 


ou can be the greatest salesperson in the world but you won’t sell anything if you don’t have quality prospects who are interested in what you have. Fortunately, we’ve compiled the tools you need to make generating loads of great leads a cinch.

2. Get contact data for nearly anybody using Jigsaw. This free/paid database bills itself as “the world’s most complete, accurate and up-to-date business contact and company data.” You can find information on nearly any company for free but getting their contact information will cost you $5 per lead.

Just like with Yahoo Groups, Google Groups is a free site that hosts millions of groups formed around nearly every subject you can imagine. Simply look for the groups that your prospects are most likely to participate in, join in seconds, and start getting noticed by people that want to buy from you.

Use Social Media To Generate Leads

Social media and social networking sites have revolutionized the way business is done. These sites, once dismissed as a way for young people to kill time, have become a place for millions of business professionals to network, share ideas, and find products and services. Here are the best social networks and social networking tools and how you can use them:

9. Find and interact with prospects 140 characters at a time using Twitter. This free microblogging platform lets you find and interact with people who are in the market for what you’re selling.

c. To find people in specific locations (Ex. all writers in Arizona) type: intitle:”writer * on twitter” OR intext:”bio * writer” intext:”location * AZ” site:twitter.com (replace writer and AZ with keyword and location of your choice)

11. Tap into Twitter’s 55 million+ daily tweets to find leads by using the free Twitter advanced search to learn whenever someone mentions keywords related to what you sell. You can even narrow your search for specific locations, dates, or even attitudes expressed in a post.

d. Get introduced to prospects – LinkedIn tells you who in your network knows somebody not in your network.
