Most sales programs rely on strong presentations of how specific features can benefit prospects. More time is spent trying to justify why the prospect should become your customer, leaving a heavy emphasis on strategies for closing the sale. Is the secret really in the closing?

Salespeople today must become experts in managing the buying process and customer expectations from the very beginning. Customers might make decisions intellectually, but the final purchase is an emotional motivation that occurs throughout the sales process. How does your selling strategy tap into the emotional aspects of the prospect's buying process? You don't "make" sales; customers choose to buy.


Program Description

In this interactive, comprehensive course we turn traditional selling systems up-side down. By focusing on strong qualifying and responding to the real questions, success at closing the sale and financial returns explode. Sales team members are shown how to get out of their own way and increase overall sales performance. The format of the program is highly interactive and encourages participation from group members.

The program topics include:

  • Traditional Selling VS Information-Age Selling
  • When Does the Closing Really Begin
  • Uncovering Customer Needs (B2B – B2C separated)
  • Dealing With Objections EARLY
  • Specific Objections
  • Closing or Buying

Learning Outcomes

Most obstacles in the selling process are caused by the salesperson. Participants will come away knowing how to stop acting like a salesperson in order to get out of the way so their customers can buy!

Audience

The program is designed for sales people at all levels of experience.
