9 What do Put-Offs Mean to the Salesperson?
“VMOLIM” Voice mail Out-to-lunch In a meeting Wandering Wasting time and effort False hope Procrastination Other What these actions mean is that the salesperson is spending a considerable amount of time and effort without much of a return on his/her investment. Additionally, these mean that the salesperson can become discouraged, impatient, and confused.

10 Go for the NO! 4 positives of a sales call:
Yes Clear future NO Lesson Learned No fear of rejection – go for a NO. DISQUALIFY If the salesperson can learn that a NO is not literally ‘fatal’ then he/she will gain more sales, because they no longer perceive no as being a rejection of them ‘personally’. Instead, they will learn that customers buy for their own reasons (or not) and that learning these reasons soon will save time and discouragement.

11 Adding Control and Predictability
The Up-Front Contract Adding Control and Predictability Up-Front means— In advance of the event. Essentially, the salesperson is simply telling the customer what to expect in the meeting. Sandler’s analogy is the Dentist who tells the patient what to expect at each stage of the process. Contract means— An agreement regarding the objectives for the meeting, the role each participant will play in meeting those objectives, and the intended outcome of the meeting.

Pain and Questioning

26 Are You Trapped in Your Comfort Zone?
Identity / Role Theory Are You Trapped in Your Comfort Zone? Sandler Rule: You can only perform in your roles in a manner that is consistent with how you see yourself conceptually.

27 The Sandler® Philosophy
Salespeople are professionals. The prospect must qualify for the sales professional’s time and efforts. Developing a business opportunity should not be hysterical activity. Some prospects won’t qualify for your time. Stalls and objections should not be part of the selling process. Wishing and hoping is not part of the selling process. There should be a start and finish to every selling opportunity. Obviously, this is the foundation of the course. While salespeople and other business people can and should be service oriented, the philosophy indicates that salespeople are not subservient. Instead, salespeople are business people and their time is valued too.

28 Summary – 10 Tips For Monday
Separate the Sales ROLE from the person – Do not allow buyers to control the salesperson’s self-image Lead the DANCE – control the process Focus on the buyer – we are NOT for everyone Ask questions to identify buyer’s PAIN Work toward self-discovery and self- education. Don’t present prematurely

29 Summary – 10 Tips For Monday
Make the buyer qualify for the salesperson’s time. Do they have the money and are they willing to spend? How do they make decisions? Sell ONLY to resolve pain, don’t sell generic features Present ONLY what’s necessary Keep the product sold Focus on customer satisfaction
