12 Important topics to consider in order to achieve effective and outstanding  sales

1.- Preparing the Prospectus. Prospecting and Knowing the Client or Future Client.

The first stage in the process of preparing the sale is to analyze the situation. We find, for example, a client who is standing with his wife in front of his car that has stopped. They notice that this is happening to them constantly.

The second stage, defining the problem, appears when the client decides that it is time to buy a new car.

The third stage in the problem-solving process is to explore alternative solutions. We watch The customer and his wife as they walk through the showroom of a car dealer, with obvious pleasure.

But in the fourth stage, that of comparing and evaluating the alternatives, the complexity of the options can create frustration and anxiety. These feelings are clearly seen in the face of the client, when he asks the seller about the various models.

Because many of our important purchases are complex, we often lack the special knowledge to assess the situation intelligently.

Therefore, we frequently consult with someone who does have that knowledge: the seller. This creates another problem: How are we going to judge the advice of the seller?

While the client is at a crossroads between a practical and economic car and a shiny red sports car, we realize another problem: the conflict of criteria. In the case, it is a conflict between your needs, the practical and your desires, to be fashionable.

Before accepting, new doubts assail us. How about buying and then discovering that there was a better offer elsewhere? At any time, the problem-solving process can return to an earlier stage.

Sellers must understand that people have so many reasons not to buy as reasons to buy. And it is possible that even the buyers themselves do not realize these reasons. Because these unconscious reasons why we buy. For example, we often want what we buy to reflect the image we have of ourselves. We want a product that we buy to say something about how we want to be looked at.

2.- Attitude. Motivation. Action.

The MOTIVATED SELLER continues to be a fundamental element of the CUSTOMER MANAGEMENT process because in his advisory role he must know the clients and prospects, establish a direct and personal communication, generate and cultivate personal relationships in the short and long term with them, in around a joint benefit, for which also has all possible means and its scope that allows you to be there facilitating the transaction in the client.

Positive thinking can produce a positive attitude and a positive attitude leads to positive results.

It will also make things easier and even pleasant. Here are other tips to get positive thinking benefits, because it can help you do things that were never thought possible. Thinking big and positive is a habit of success.

Sellers must begin to become aware of their thoughts and exchange negative thoughts with positive thoughts. Substitute negativity for being positive, thoughts about poverty with thoughts about wealth, ignorance with understanding, disharmony with harmony and lack of freedom with freedom. Begin to say “I can”, “I can” and “It is possible.” It is our mind that creates the kind of life we ​​live in. If we think positively, we will transform our life accordingly Everything starts from the inside, from the simplest action We can not always have control over our external circumstances, but we can control our inner world of thoughts, where everything begins.

We can not always control everything, but we can, with some effort, control our internal thoughts and actions.

If you do not offer value, all that remains is the price.

“If you become Valuable, Memorable and Necessary, others will want to be part of you, they will want to connect with you”

What does it mean to add value?

For what purpose do we want to add value?

“You do not have to think in terms of products or services individually, but in terms of rewarding experiences”

The price is the cost of a product or service expressed in money while the value is the benefit that the customer receives when buying a product or service.

The price does not always indicate the true value.

What is your customer most valued?

Beyond the product, the strategy, the marketing, the shopping experience, the price, etc., what your client values ​​enormously is how you respond when things do not go as expected.

How do customers make their purchase decisions?

They base their purchasing decisions on

“Your perceptions about the value that different products or services provide”

Successful companies do not deliver products in exchange for a profit, but rather: Value in exchange for a nullity.

How do customers perceive the value of a product or service?

All the benefits they obtain by owning or using a product or service

  • (less)

The price or all the costs involved in its acquisition, consumption or use

= VALUE

The perception of the “benefits” offered by a product or service varies from client to client.

Functional Benefits: Size, weight, shape, ease of use, durability, etc.

Psychological Benefits: Tranquility, security, self-esteem, acceptance, sense of belonging, etc.

Benefits Based on the services offered:

Training, guarantees, maintenance, updates, etc.

8.- The Trust. Generating Trust in Himself and towards others. Generating confidence in the sale.

“Confidence in yourself, is the first secret of Success”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

“You can not build trust in others until you believe in yourself”

“If you do not trust some people, it’s because They have not earned it; if some people do not trust you, it’s because you have not earned them “

Trust is a quality that involves believing and being sure that a situation is a certain way, or that a person will act in a certain way.

Confidence supposes security in oneself as in others since it implies the belief that certain results or consequences will be achieved in certain situations.

Trust in ourselves, allows us to act with authority and property at all times, we avoid walking with doubts and fearful of what may happen.

Trusting in ourselves makes it easier for us to face life with less fear, and more decision.

How to build trust:

1. Give honest and correct information about one, the company and the product.

2. Focus on the relationship, on what the client requires, to be truly interested in their problem.

3. Make it obvious that there are real people behind the company.

4. Be open in communicating with clients or potential clients

7. Do not focus on closing sales, but on helping the client make a decision.

9. Do not wait too long to give an answer.

10. Try to mention harsh topics soon, or somewhere in between.

9.- The Negotiation. The process. Methodologies, Psychology of Negotiation. Win win.

NEGOTIATION is a process that culminates in an act: THE AGREEMENT

The final outcome of any negotiation can only be to achieve that final goal.

All our efforts must be aimed at improving our performance throughout the process.

The agreement is only the goal that we will reach if the progression has been adequate.

– NEGOTIATION is the relationship established by two or more people in relation to a specific issue with a view to approach positions and to reach an agreement that is beneficial for all of them.

It starts when there are differences in the positions held by the parties. If these positions were coincident, it would not be necessary to negotiate.

It seeks to eliminate these differences, usually gradually approaching the positions until reaching an acceptable point for all.

To start a negotiation there must also be interest on the part of those affected in trying to reach an agreement.

Only if one of the parties did not have this will to understand there would be no negotiation.

Stages of the Negotiation Process:

1. Planning: contemplates the diagnosis, strategy and tactics.

2. Negotiation Face to Face: contains its own stages …

3. Subsequent analysis: includes the analysis of the results of the process

Stages NEGOTIATION Face to Face

1. Initial phase:

It is in which we make a general statement of our position, of our interests, of the objectives and agreements that we hope to achieve and of our disposition and means within our reach.

2. Trial or recognition phase:

– Know more in depth and detail the approach of the other party, through questions or requests for clarification or clarification.

– Have the content and scope of our initial positions or approaches, reorienting them or correcting them slightly depending on the exposure that the other party has made theirs and the consequent strategy, which normally we will already have planned.

3. The discussion: it is the central part and probably the most difficult part of the negotiation process. They try to bring the final agreement to our position as close as possible. Arguments are used that reinforce and support our theses and others that weaken the strength of the opposing theses.

4. Partial proposals and exchange: The first exchanges take place in which the parties make some assignments in exchange for others, thus obtaining the first partial agreements. The sum of partial agreements increases the set of common points and creates a collective spirit that favors the entry and the positive outcome of the final agreement.

5. The proposals and final exchange: this phase is the definitive one since, the parties concentrate to the maximum in the most difficult aspects. Positions are approached and global proposals and solutions are sought; differences are reduced, distances are reduced and a total and definitive agreement is sought.

6. Agreement or closure: it is the phase of materialization and formation of the agreement. It is usually arrived at as a logical and natural result of a process in which both parties seek an agreement. An agreement is the one voluntarily taken by parties convinced that it is the best option.

NEGOTIATION is perhaps one of the stages of every sales process where emotions play vital.

How does the other party feel when I’m negotiating?

Emotions contribute to the negotiation process by pointing out what one feels and thinks.

Most people usually react to the emotions of the other party with reciprocity.

Expert negotiators know the mood of the other person, recognize their strengths and weaknesses and take advantage of them.

The keys to success in NEGOTIATION:

– In a NEGOTIATION, the internal state of the person influences the results.

– Success is achieved based on personal choices, motivations and beliefs that arise from internal states.

– The key is to develop a positive internal state that allows us to select and tune in to those behaviors favorable to negotiation.

NEGOTIATION is a challenge that we must face with enthusiasm and we must be willing to seek a solution that is beneficial for both parties.

It is an interrelation with another human being, that feels, that has emotions and its own history, if we take care of this and also we train and learn the negotiation techniques, we can maximize our probability of winning the denial and consequently the sale.

An excellent negotiator has a positive attitude, a high level of motivation and empowering beliefs.

10.- Networking, Connections, Success in Associations and Connections. Clients Referred Places for Connections and Networking.

“Many people have powerful connections; very few have taken advantage of the power of those connections “

“The question you have to ask yourself is: How can you make people connect better with you? How can you make people feel better by connecting with you? But this is not just an eventual connection, you must be a strategy of connection with everyone, in many and all places and at any time “

11.- Closing of the Sale. Tracing. Maintenance of the client. Management of the relationship with the client.

“The real rule of giving and taking is: before taking you have to give”

“Customer satisfaction has no value; customer loyalty is priceless “,

Jeffrey Gitomerqa

Signs and behaviors that the Customer is going to buy

Ask unimportant questions:

Questions about details and points attached show that the decision has been made and that the client only wants to ensure a specific point.

Gestures can indicate that the expected moment has already arrived

Non-verbal communication: Change in expression, relaxed attitude, Ask specific price questions and / or when the product / service can be delivered, etc.

The calculating clients

The clients start calculating in order to calm their monetary concerns or verify the profitability of the proposed investment.

The client argues for us

Client: “… And this way I save myself having to buy this or that product” or “It’s a bit more expensive, but at least it will give me security and I’ll be calm”

Reduction of objections

Objections that take the form of a question

Client: “Tell me, your product allows you to get …”

Seller: “Why is that point important to you?

What exactly do you want to achieve? ”

The price is requested at the end of the interview:

Seller: “I’m going to give you the price, but first I want to know if, apart from the price, all the characteristics of the product are valuable to you or if, on the contrary, you have some objection”

Basic techniques to close Sales

DIRECT CLOSURE

It is where a direct question is asked to the client that he can only answer for himself or not, almost always the seller tends to use this type of closure because he feels that it is all said, many sellers also use it to discover objections or complaints and pass to another type of closure.

Client: – I like plan A

Seller – Perfect, I think it’s the best decision you could make, do you sign the order?

CLOSURE WITH ALTERNATIVES

It does not stop being a direct closure, the difference is that the customer is presented with a purchase option, for example:

Seller – Which one is the A or the B? Do you pay in cash, check or card?

This closure allows the client to feel that the person handling the situation is the customer and not the seller, it is a good closing technique as long as the customer is not scared and should be used when the signals for this are received.

CLOSURE OF THE ORDER FORM

The order form should always be close to the seller and in view of the client, it is as natural to start filling out the contract, in this way the other party does not feel pressured to give an answer but also takes the purchase as natural .

CLOSURE FOR CONCERN:

When the client takes time to decide or his answer is to wait, the seller will say:

“Okay, but remember that prices change next week”, or “Keep in mind that today I have the item, which may be sold out and I will have a lot of delay in the replacement”

CLOSURE BY BALANCE

Place our product on a sheet of paper and we will divide the sheet in two, on one side pro and on the other side against. We will help the client to see the positive aspects of our product, and we will let him see only the negative aspects of it. Surely, the pro column must be complete, while the cons column will have very few points on which we can work at ease.

CLOSURE OF LOST SALE

It is usually effective to ask the client to explain why he does not buy the product:

“Excuse me but I would like to know what you did not like about the product in order to improve …”

Surely if we have maintained a good deal of empathy with the client, this will clarify the issue or you can resume the sale from the point of question.

“… the closure is the natural and logical reflection that occurs when we have successfully traveled with the appropriate person for the product or service we offer, through all stages of the sale.”

The quality of closures is achieved when each consumer decides to “take and execute the purchase decision” as a result of having reached the level of security and belief that he decides to enjoy.

12.-Values ​​of the Professional Sale:

-You have to Create a difference between You and the Competition; also Know the difference between satisfaction and loyalty; A professional salesperson must have the ability to speak and convince; Establish friendly and harmonious relationships;

Some values ​​necessary to achieve a professional sale:
