L M E A R N OE
A key rule We’re all in a job thanks to one person – the customer, and no customer means no sale, it’s that simple When you, as a salesperson, show genuine interest in the customer, this will make the customer want to do business with you rather than your competitors When you get to know your customers, you will find out what their wants and needs are; then you will be able to close the sale on the items for which they are searching rather than on items they do not want or need So one of the key rules of selling is to listen I’m not too sure what I need... …it’s for 5 users What do you recommend inkjet or laser? I will need it to print and fax
Now what? “There are hundreds of different makes and models of printer out there, which one is the right one?” Listening is the first part of the journey now it’s time to advise on the right product We know what the customer wants, on this occasion it is a printer for the office Good question, do you go for the lowest priced one? The fastest one? Or, the one that is the cheapest to run? It’s tricky when most vendors claim to be the fastest or the cheapest and that theirs is the best one, remember we’re here to fit the right product to the customer’s needs This is where using the following 3 simple steps can help...

Introduction to up-selling Although we know the customer requires an entry level mono printer, there are still a wide variety of machines to choose from, how can we find the right product? If we remember what the customer asked for at the beginning, they wanted a printer for the office, so we now need to consider additional features, such as: Double-sided printing - Saves up to 50% on paper cost Network ready - Save on multiple devices by sharing the device Wireless -Position the printer anywhere in the office Using these common features you can up-sell through the range, okay the machine might be more expensive, but the customer is happy as they have machine more suited to their needs and will be more cost effective in the long term! We’ll learn more about these features in the Product Basics course Let’s see this process from start to finish....
You - “Have you considered double-sided printing? And, did you know that it can save up to 50% on paper cost in your office?” Customer - “Okay, that sounds good” You - “You also mentioned earlier this is for an office, will more than one person need to print? If so, it might be more cost effective opting for a network model and sharing it, this will save you money on multiple devices” Customer - “I’ve not thought of that, 3 people in my office will need to use the printer” Sure you get the idea! What you are doing is up-selling the customer to another machine which suits their needs better than the original choice (HL-2130 > HL-2250DN) The full journey How many pages per month?
