2. Identify/Question Identify what?... The real issue, the real problem! How?... By asking questions! What questions?... Who? What? Where? When? Why? & How?
3. Trial Close If I could show you…, would you…? If I you knew…, would you…?
5. Close on the issue/objection “Does that make sense?” “Are there any other questions?” “Can we put that to rest?” “Is there any reason we can’t move ahead?” Just another term for CLOSE!
What is a Close? When selling, any time you ask the client to move ahead! Signature. Yes/No, I want the product. When you ask for the business!
