Your Best Sales Advice

I have owned a small B2B business for the past three years. It is basically a one-man operation though I have a few part-time employees. I am pretty good at everything, except for one thing: sales. I suck at sales. The way I am currently doing my sales is I send sales letters to people I know are interested in our services and then follow up with them via email or the phone. I'm not bad at writing sales letters, but when it comes to closing the deal, I always have a hard time. With the recent economic downturn, our profits have dropped and I need to drastically improve my sales. If you have any experience selling to people, what have you learned? Anything applicable in the slightest would be very helpful!

Hiring marketing professional for freelance business

I am a freelancer in a sub-genre of graphic design. In a bid to get more clients, I'm attempting (through Craigslist) to hire a marketing professional (or professionals). My general idea is that they would work to get me more clients, and I would give them a percentage of sales resulting from my work with those clients. My question here is what the specifics of the deal should be. My initial thought was 15% of income for life on the clients they bring me. Does that sound reasonable? Too much? Too little? The wrong way to go about it entirely? I really like the commission model, at least for now, because I don't have money to lay out up front and I like that we both benefit or both don't. Is there any kind of standard for this kind of relationship?

Jumpstarting a marketing plan for a web development team

I'm with a small web design/development team, and for the past three years we've done pretty well almost entirely by word of mouth. We really need to be more proactive in getting work in - we've known this for a while, just never been quite sure how to go about it. I've been put in charge of figuring it out. And of course, how to do it on a limited budget. We're in contact with our old and current clients, and have asked them for referrals. Our local isp sends us a good bit of business. What all should I be doing? [more inside]
