No matter what your business is, you will enhance your level of success by developing a well-organized sales presentation. A good sales presentation involves two primary elements:
(1) The pre-planned sales talk. (2) A carefully conceived and organized visual presentation that documents, confirms, supports, and strengthens oral.
Your visual aid can take a variety of forms. It may be a multi-page flip-over type with elaborate charts and graphs, extensive artwork, color photos, and other attention getting devices. It may be a computer driven multi-media event or a simple on-line presentation from a laptop. Or, it can be a basic set of 8 1/2 X 11 loose-leaf pages that can be arranged to fit diverse selling situations.
Presentations, whether professionally designed or home made, are a vital component of your selling process. Why? Confucius put it this way: "In all things, success depends upon previous preparation, and without such preparation there is sure to be failure." First prepare. Then sell.
Here are ten tips for selling better with prepared presentations.
1.Plan Ahead. Advance preparation is nine-tenths of sale. Be sure you are organized and equipped to talk, show, and sell. Know all you can about your prospect before you make presentation. Tailor your products/services benefits to solve your prospectsí problems and fill their needs and desires.
2.Make A Great First Impression. A clean uncluttered sales presentation, like an artistís creation, is a mirror-image of your character, personality, and attitude.
