© Selling Quotes “People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.” Harvey B. Mackay “If I give him what he wants then I will get what I want.” Harvey B. Mackay “If you don’t ask, the answer is always going to be no.” Pat Croce “If you do not have the right approach, no one is going to buy anything from you.” L Baselice “If you don’t have confidence in yourself to believe you can help, then how are you going to convince your customers.” L Baselice “There are two types of politicians. The one who will talk and promise and then the one who will listen and do.” Bill Bradley “If I help you win, I win too.” Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out. Robert Collier

Vagueness is equivalent to lying. 2.The supplier is expected to know the customer's business. 3.The supplier is expected to do what he says he is going to do. 4.The supplier is expected to solve the customer's problem--the customer is not interested in internal organizational issues. 5.The supplier is expected to want the customer's business. 6.The supplier is expected to keep the customer technology current. 7.The supplier is expected to know what his product's capabilities are and that those capabilities match published literature.

If he does not like you he only needs one reason not to give you the business. 2.If a customer is going to entrust you with hundreds of thousand dollars worth of business, don’t you think he would like to know a little bit more about the person he is dealing with?

© Handling Price concerns Put the focus back on value rather than price. Show where you add value Do not apologize for the price Do not jump to make concessions Look for ways to include perceived value Price is only the tip of the iceberg
© Buyer Objections
© Handling Buyer Objections Feel Felt Found response “I know how you feel. A lot of our customers have felt that way until they found that….” –We offer free delivery –We have a two year warranty –They do not need to spend extra time assembling our product This helps empathize with the customer’s concerns
© Closing Video
© Close the sale basics Recognize closing clues. Focus on point of greatest interest. Handle tough points early. Avoid surprises. Keep prospect involved. Display confidence. Accommodate buyer’s communication style. Ask for the order more than once.
© Closing the sale Verbal Clues Do you have a credit plan to cover this purchase? What type of warranty do you provide? How soon can we get delivery? Time to try to close and ask for the order or contract.
© Closing the sale Recognition We like the quality control system you have recommended. I have always liked to own a boat like this Your delivery schedule fits our plans Time to try to close and ask for the order or contract.
© Closing the sale Requirements We will need shipment in 2 weeks Our staff will need to be trained how to use this equipment All our equipment must be certified by the plant safety officer. Time to try to close and ask for the order or contract.
© Closing the sale non verbal clues Watch for nodding (approval not just dosing off) Suddenly the eyes start to widen. Prospect leans forward and appears to be intent on hearing your message. Prospect studies the product or literature intently. These are sometimes difficult to detect. They are body movement, facial expressions and tone of voice.
© Trial Close You should not wait until the end to close. Trying earlier gives you more opportunities. It might be too late if you wait until the end. Use the trial close when you are reasonably sure the prospect is about to make a decision. It is a good way to test the buyer’s attitude toward the actual purchase.
© Trial Close Examples ‘We can arrange an August first shipment. Would this be satisfactory?” “Would you rather begin this plan on July first or fifteenth? “Which do your prefer the green or the blue?” “Do you want one of our staff members to supervise the installation?” “Will a $250 down payment be possible at this time?”
© Summary of benefits close Summary-of-Benefits Close: Reemphasizes benefits to help bring about favorable buyer decision. Confirmation Step: Assure customer after sale has been closed that he made the right decision and that you will not let him down. Buyer’s Remorse: Common emotional response in the form of regret, fear, or anxiety. Compliment the person for making a wise decision. Your words might be helpful to him while justifying it to another person.
© Closing Worksheet Be sure to thank the customer for the order/business.
© Handling Objections/Close Exercise Take your solution and proposal and try it on your partner. Partner should try 2 objections from what we learned. Try to handle the 2 objections with what we discussed. Try 2 trial closes Customer role play should attempt to give some closing clues. But be convinced that the sales person has done the job Close with a hand shake
© What to do when buyer says no Do not blame yourself or anyone else Get feedback –For yourself was it your style –For the company you represent –Was it the product –Was it the price –Competitor advantage or benefit –Relationship not built Start working right away on the next order Ask if there is any chance to revive the sale Ask how to improve Learn from your experience Never treat a lost sale as a defeat Do not abandon your relationship Analyze lost sales in order to obtain success the next time. Create a database/toolbox for future use Pass feedback on to everyone in your organization
© Final Quotes “Just because you say no doesn’t mean I can’t get you to change your mind.” Salesman’s Creed “Take no for an answer but don’t stop asking” Pat Croce
© Follow up Thank the customer immediately after getting an order. Tell him thanks for placing his confidence in you and that you will not let him down. This will help eliminate buyer remorse. Give customer updates and progress reports. Send photos Make sure you contact/visit him after the equipment has arrived to obtain immediate feedback. Be proactive. Did the shipment get there yet? Can I follow up with you after you install the product. Respond to any issues after he receives the product. –Nobody gets it right all the time. –It is important not to avoid a problem meet it head on –This is where a relationship with other stakeholders can really help you head off a problem.
© Customer Complaints View issue as opportunity to strengthen the business relationship. Let customers disclose feelings Listen Do not challenge complaint as “invalid” Do not alibi Share point of view Decide on course of action Extend an apology Ask customer what he would like to see happen to solve the problem.
© Follow Up exercise Do a follow up sales call on your partner/customer Use techniques we learned Customer to make up a problem they had with the material. Practice your listening and calming skills
