September 30, 2019

Listen Now

If you’ve dreamed of being on television (and so many design professionals have) than you’ll love hearing from guest expert Alli Mang. She is a multi-million dollar brand ambassador who knows how to sell. In fact, she wrote the book on it. Sold Out shares insights into peak performance selling in the high stakes environment of shopping channels.

In this episode we learn:

  • sales is a main part of the job when you get yourself on tv
  • always sell the experience, rather than the object
  • film yourself selling mundane objects for 3 minutes, 30 minutes and 3 hours
  • in an audition you’ll have 3 seconds to sell yourself
  • always sell to a single person rather than to “everyone”
  • set an intention around who you want to sell products to


Design Intervention

Make a lasting impression the moment you meet someone. After that, it’s too late.
