Whether you are an employer who is looking to motivate your sales team, or a sales rep who likes pump-up music before starting a day, we compiled a list of what we consider to be some awesome songs to get the mind working early in the morning and get those sales rolling in.
DJ Khaled – We Takin’ Over
A fan favorite back when it came out in 2007, DJ Khaled seems to strike a chord with hustlers and empire-builders all around the country. His song “We Takin’ Over” will motivate you to take over any opportunity that comes your way, one call at a time.
Arguably one of the best techno songs ever composed, Darude’s Sandstorm has been the pump up song for countless basketball, football, soccer, baseball, ping pong, quiddich, and basically whatever sport is remotely competitive. It will definitely get you ready to get on the phone and be energized.
Queen – We are the Champions
I always like to listen to this song after a successful sale or especially after my team hits their goals. As we all know, sales is 99% a mental game with yourself. Feeling like a champion is a self-fulfilling prophecy. No other song quite nails it like this one does.
Eminem – Lose Yourself
Yes, it’s NSFW. Don’t play it when you have your CEO visiting your cubicle. Eminem’s absurd profanity isn’t the best thing to play around your superiors, but damn, this song is insanely motivational. Not only will you feel like nothing can stop you, but you’ll be ridiculously motivated to close your next deal, because Look, if you had one shot, or one opportunity to sieze everything you ever wanted in one moment, would you capture it, or just let it slip?
Pink Floyd- Money
Yes, I realize that Pink Floyd was singing about the evils of money. Yes, I know Pink Floyd would look at me in disgust if they realized I included this song in a list devoted to pumping up sales people. I don’t care – this song is awesome and it pumps me the hell up every time I hear it.
Survivor – Eye of the Tiger
It’s cliche and it’s expected that thing song should be on a list such as this, but there’s a reason for that. Remember in a previous post we discussed the laser-like focus that top performers have? They have the eye of the tiger. That’s what this song is describing.
Bee Gees- Stayin’ Alive
Sales is hard. Sometimes, after hearing “no” and “no” and “no” and “no”, it starts to get to us. This song is the perfect remedy for that. Not only will you find yourself dancing in your chair, you’ll be re-energized and feel a lot better.
Green Day- Welcome to Paradise
A good motivational song should be the right mix of an upbeat tempo, positive lyrics, and exciting guitar riffs. This song has it all.
Duran Duran- Hungry Like the Wolf
If you’re in sales, you have heard the expression “stay hungry” or “be hungry”. This song describes that feeling perfectly. Great for those days where you don’t quite feel the mojo – this will reignite it for you.
Ace Hood- Bugatti
This one is my personal favorite. Of course, it’s very explicit, but it’s another one of those songs that gets you jacked up. Whenever I want to get in the mood to make money, I want to hear songs about being insanely rich and doing rich people things – this is that song.
We hope you liked this list! Although some songs have profanity in it, we hope some of the songs will at least get you ready to start the day and ready to make some money.
