Improve Your Sales With This Quick Tips
I’ll be brief. If not – I will reference my own article. Time to read a two-part handbook on sales progress? You want to get back to making sales and money. Let’s go then.
More time pressure.
You have less hope and less feeling pressure. Just like you, I believe. As a brokerage professional, you need to be sensitive to this. For your own good, in brief, brief and concise. Don’t miss a moment of optimism or yours with long (and boring) shows. Observe people who go ahead and on networking events when asking what they are doing or introducing themselves to the group. Is that you?
Less resources to do more.
Your sales increase when you better define the amount of ‘garbage’ your product offers. In evidence of prepared return On investment for prospects. The best ROI support is customer testimonials that have real numbers. If you don’t have any, use company data and third-party research, or statistics, and collect yours. Start today.
Less than a few extra mailboxes.
If you do not improve your ability to send voicemail messages, then you will continue to face the pain of receiving your calls back. A lot of sales force and confidence with voice mail is still poor. If you can’t motivate me to call you back, how can you possibly motivate me to buy from you? Again, be brief, concise and aware. Excessive shining power will not let me know the benefit of calling you back. Get some training on how to deliver a 30-second message that has an impact that cannot be ignored and results.
More book and email.
The letter is hard to find these days. A client of mine, IBM, wants to send a confirmation letter on the sales forum I give. My contact could not find the letter. However, lack of literacy is not an excuse for poor spelling and curt communication. Build relationships through regular and meaningful email relationships. Make your email well-written, focused and brief. It faces obstacles, such as strict network security and poor computer technology of its recipients. Get a tutorial on email and copy writing. Do not send email with large or very large attachments. Sending a ‘snail-mail’ page is a comeback with current wallet and “multi-email” technology.
There are fewer personal presentations and more technology.
Travel and budgets are reduced. Teleconferencing and web-based shows have grown in use. Sadly, technology does not breed power. Listen to me. Using a webinar to read a PowerPoint to me on the phone will NOT sell me. Again, build your strategy and maximize your presentation or have them become expert experts.
Less talk and listen more.
The wisdom of the ages. Cliché is really but also overlooked and kept in place at sales. Expectations have little time to listen to your ‘playground.’ Unfortunately, they have more time to ‘complain.’ Perfect. Encourage this and consider their problems. Let them sell themselves. Let your expectations talk themselves into purchasing and justifying them. Give occasion to occasion and self-sacrifice to support their strength. Good sales people sell products. Great marketing professionals solve problems.
Less preparation and more action.
More vendors fail while perfecting their approach instead of actually making contacts. See. Ready-made preparation makes you sound robots and careless. It is a procrastinator stigma and an excuse for those who are afraid of rejection. Get on the phone and attend current networking events. Progress on the fly. Don’t worry. We are all human and unfortunately.
In the past years, George Carlin listed seven words he could not talk on television. Then HBO came along, said all the words, and the world of television changed forever. Now, I know that even before you read seven-word sentences and have no sales, you might be tempted to think, oh, whatever these may eventually become acceptable, too.
There are two major problems with this idea.
1. Television has been around for over sixty years so it is still young that is experiencing growing pains; sales started way back when the wheel maker made a few additions to sell to friends.
2. The seven marketing statements have already been quoted by retailers and are offering targeted mediocre results. They moved on because the seller said them and the novice salespeople called them. The child continued.
The main challenge with these issues is that they undermine the credibility of the sellers and encourage defense barriers to develop in one of the buyers. Talk about shoppers selling themselves in the foot! These phrases either undermine what could be a great sale down a bargain or they scare buyers. And worse, inexperienced suppliers think they ought to say these words in order to entice buyers. Here’s a word to my sales colleagues: Regardless of whether you are selling products, services, and / or ideas, avoid using these phrases! They will make buyers trust it.
As you read these seven, think of yourself as a buyer and not a seller. (Do you ever stop to think that in your lifetime it is possible to buy more products and services than you will sell?) As a buyer, imagine you are in a situation in which a supplier has encountered you. Test your input. Do any of these seven do you want to buy – or do they make you want to run?
Here are seven dead phrases in marketing materials. In fact, one of these is two words, not one sentence. But all of these leave the same feeling behind-the-scenes as a bad word.
Trust me. Teaching people to trust a retailer is as good as developing a familiar joke that your punch line will be “it’s crazy so it just gives me a lot of your money right now.” Collaborating the credibility and the tokens of buyers to put on their enemies and turn on their BS Filters (for Better Feeling, of course). Confidence is one of two ideas that one wants for more, the more the trick it becomes. Trust – like love – cannot be asked for effectiveness. Even if you are a widow, you must work to be honest. And in addition, it is the prerogative of the buyer to decide who to trust, when, and how much. Order of trust will prevent the actual supplier from receiving it. (P.S. “Believe me when I say …” is in the same league.)
I am your friend. It is tempting for a supplier to think that a buyer is a new friend after the first two 15 minutes happily expressing a traumatic experience or love. This happened, for example, when they both shared an obsession for golf and both of them at once built the course at Pebble Beach in their youth. However, many rapport error vendors for friends. The two are not the same. Dating requires emotional investment and real commitment. Friendship takes time, energy, and some sacrifice. Climbing is a great way to ease any tensions in the sales process but over-the-top can raise feelings for buyers’ minds.
Nobody can sell this cheaper than me. No one? First of all, the world is a great place with many others selling as much as what other retailers have. If a supplier has the lowest price in the world on an item and can do business both legally and profitably, instead of wasting one-to-one time with prospects, you should place a website and rake in dough. And second, the problem with boasting about being the most insignificant (besides avoiding buyers’ oppression) is that it’s an easy way to make a profit. A more satisfying way is to express the value of a product, service, or idea. Price takes into account stability, experience, service, reliability, reliability, branding, optimism, returns, and how much the seller will be best suited for purchasing. Being promoted ahead of the competition is a rock-solid strategy for long-term success.
We are the best! Okay, maybe there are some situations in which this is trustworthy. And I do not oppose the power of critical thinking as a bold composer. But the reality is buyers have learned that ninety-nine percent of shoppers say they are lying. Words like this change on their BS filter. The best, as well as beauty, is in the eye of the watcher – not the seller.
Always and never. This shoe rests on the same thing as “We are beautiful.” They are like predictions and are often understood as telling the truth. For example, how true are these two words? “We always provide quality service.” “Our delivery drivers are not long.”
