Nine hundred and seventy-seven buyers and sellers across 25 industries agree, this is what you need to become more successful at sales prospecting.
The beginning of the year is a great time to evaluate your sales techniques, knowledge and overall skills. An annual sales “check-up” can ensure that you reach your full potential by spotlighting any weak points.
Asking the right questions at the right time is critical to high-performance selling. Appropriate-timed probing gives you access to valuable insights that can win the sale. They can also help you deliver excellent customer service once you’ve made the deal.
In sales, delivery is just as important as the words said. Without an air of confidence, it will be difficult for a rep to reach his or her full potential. Why? Projecting a calm, confident image will boost the buyer’s own confidence in what you’re selling.
Including a call to action in emails can be a very effective way for reps to ensure their emails are productive. But, not every call to action is equal. In fact, some can actually sabotage a deal.
Now that the holidays have passed, it’s time to focus on getting things moving in 2018. The holiday season can wreak havoc on productivity, and reconnecting with prospects and clients is often difficult after the hiatus.
What do both your sales wins and losses have in common? You! Reps are ultimately the key to their own success. Selling the most impressive product or service doesn’t always win the sale. But, an excellent sales experience can.
There’s still hope when a potential deal stalls; its revival just requires some savvy on the part of the sales rep.
If you are new to the world of selling, you might be uncertain of where to begin. It can be tough for industry newcomers to find a good landing spot that aligns with their skills and expectations.
