Secrets That Lead To Failure In SalesWritten by Tim Gorman
Letís be realistic nobody really wants to be labeled a failure when it comes to sales, unfortunately many business minded people are just that when it comes to selling their product or service. I have gathered a few tips Iíd like to share that can prevent you from succeeding in sales and ultimately cost you your business.
Based on my personal observations Iíve noticed one strong trait that is prevalent among people that are poor in sales, and that is a failure to adequately prepare to sale their product or service. They simply neglected to take time to learn anything about their potential client or worse anything about their particular product or service. For instance, if goal is to sell a particular cell phone model or plan to a consumer it would be beneficial to learn as much as possible about that particular cell phoneís features or what makes that cell phone plan special.
If youíre a salesperson that deals directly with clients then best advice I can give is to simply listen. This may seem to contradict what I stated in previous paragraph about knowing features or highlights of your product or service but in reality it isnít. A successful salesperson will know everything about their merchandise they just wonít reveal it until prompted by consumer. They know how to avoid giving out information that has no chance of closing sell and they definitely avoid information that could prove fatal to sale. Instead they listen to their client speak and pick up on certain phrases that express needs, wants or desires. Real estate agents are great at listening and then pouncing on sale. In many cases a great real estate agent wonít discuss prices until potential buyer of house has accidentally revealed how much they would be willing to pay for a house based on current asking price. Itís part of human nature to want to boast about how much you can afford to pay even if you donít really want to ever get that high. Once this information is revealed real estate agent has a duty to inform seller he/she represents and rest is history, or at least a nice commission check for agent.
