Presentations all have the same goal: Get information you possess in to the brain of an audience. While it sounds simple enough, transferring that information effectively just isn’t that easy.
The prospect won’t buy if he/she lacks confidence in you or your product. Obviously the faster you establish confidence in the selling process, the easier it will be to get to the next phase of the sale.
People are always looking for advice on how to give the perfect presentation. They worry about whether or not to use visual aids, how many slides (if any!) to include, or if storytelling is more effective than instructional style.
The sales process can be a long and arduous journey. Depending on the situation, what might start with a prospecting call in February could easily not close until March of the following year.

In the sales world, it’s not just how you say it but what you say. Certain words can trigger things in buyers that make them more likely to say yes to a deal…or no thanks and move on. While managers may pass along advice about which words to avoid, there is actually data to back up these suggestions.
You may know your products/services backward and forward, but if you’re making these three sales mistakes, you may be sabotaging your sale.

Just hear me out!
Meeting with a potential client soon? Here are three quick tips to keep in mind to help you close your next sale.
So many things can go well during a sales call. And alternately, so many things can go wrong. Whether you and the prospect are on different pages or he or she can’t stop talking about a different topic, calls can quickly go awry.
Sales pitches are just one of many vital parts of the sales process. While a pitch’s importance hasn’t changed, its style is evolving. Traditionally, they were long-winded and focused heavily on the product or service. In today’s world, reps should toss those old-school pitches aside.
