David Gee has traveled the world, raced cars in England, lived and worked in Europe, Hawaii and Canada as a nightclub entertainer, spent 15 years as a network TV news anchor and entertainment reporter, interviewed nearly every star in Hollywood, as well as did hundreds of live shots from the red carpet of multiple Academy Awards shows. He was the motorsports PR pro for Terry Bradshaw's NASCAR team, and has been an award-winning business magazine editor, media trainer, professional speaker, corporate PR director, marketing agency account manager and communications consultant.
When David Gee's television news career took him to Hollywood nearly every weekend for several years to interview the stars and directors of soon-to-be-released feature films, he knew he needed something to stand out. He recognized intuitively that if he was going to have a unique, authentic, interesting interview with professionals who followed scripts for a living, he was going to have to be different right away, piquing their curiosity, and putting them on notice they were going to have to pay attention. He didn't have the name or the language for it then, but that's where 3 Second Selling was born. And after beginning to build out the platform, he found the concept that people's opinions of you are fully formed within seconds had been researched as early as the 1950's. Gee took what had already scientifically proven, the way our brains are wired, and laid it over a sales and marketing platform. 3 seconds. That’s it.
Our mission is simple. We help salespeople learn how to cut through the clutter and quickly create emotional connections, so prospects and customers listen longer, learn better and buy earlier. 3 Second Selling™ is for everyone who needs to sell themselves, but doesn’t want to get caught doing it. You see, the old fashioned ways of telling and selling are over. We need to be original, authentic and memorable with every idea, interaction, program, service and message. It can help someone make the decision to hire you, promote you or want to work for/with you. Once you learn to recognize them, you will realize we all have 3 Second Selling™ moments all day, every day. It’s creating a vision that becomes your reality. It’s operating from a position of strength, truth and power. It’s about sculpting the world into your own expectations. It’s thinking bigger, becoming more agile and expecting success. And you can learn how to use it too.
