Why are "selling skills" key for your success?
Whatever sector you are working in, there will always be a need to develop sales skills and sales professionals – we all have something we can sell!
Training for sales management is crucial. Proficient selling skills are crucial for any job role, but specifically in sales management specifically, without understanding the right sales methodology it is likely that you are burning leads and wasting a lot of your time and cash.
Sales professionals must be able to create an effective sales strategy that is thoroughly designed to meet the needs of the prospective customer, with the best practices and tailored processes which will set the foundation to an organisation’s sales effectiveness and overall success. This is where our sales training courses come in.
Imagine the stereotypical salesperson
Chances are that we have all met the stereotypical salesperson – think of the sales manager at a car dealership for instance. A lively, quick-talking extrovert who is repeating the same tiresome rehearsed spiel to each person they encounter. These people usually don’t let you get a word in and they throw all the sales jargon at you in such a manner that it’s like they’re talking at you, not to you. This method of selling creates the impression that the customer’s cash is more valuable to them than their satisfaction.
This is among one of the biggest mistakes that are made by sales professionals. Too many salespeople forget that selling is a two-way process. Active listening helps you to customer concerns and gives you the chance to address buyer pain points. This adds value to the product/service you are trying to sell and suddenly gives your business with an edge over most competitors.
Customers like to know they are being heard and you are doing everything in your power assist and guide them in their purchasing decision. Not only does this type of customer service help close deals for you and your organisation, it will also boost the likelihood for repeat business.
We offer sales training classes that emphasise the importance of relationship selling and prioritise the customer experience, taking you through the entire sales process and explaining how to close more sales.
In order to convert a prospective customer from an early stage lead to a finalised deal, the salesperson must adhere to a certain structure made up of essential and repeatable steps. This is called the sales process or the sales cycle. The sales training programs will give you the tools and information necessary to master this process.
Prospecting is the first step in the sales process. Here you will manage sales opportunities, research prospective customers and contact contacts with the aim of generating leads and securing your business.
Qualifying leads is a necessary process that determines the leads you will consider as the most important to follow up. Leads should be classified by the possibility of them becoming a client and this can be based on your primary data, secondary statistics or even customer personas.
At this phase, you must take time to get familiar with the company or person you’re planning to present your idea to, and also become familiar with their business and industry in general. This will enable you pinpoint possible issues that you then propose solutions to using your service or product and resolve customer concerns. Having a good understanding of your prospect’s situation will make you look more credible and increase the likelihood of getting good sales results.
This is an essential aspect that is essential to the sales process. Here you will sell to your prospect how your product or service can benefit them, using the research you have previously conducted.
Make sure you back your assertions by proving your them with statistics and data. A solution-based approach can only work if your demonstrate to your customer that your product/service will solve their problems and add extra value.
Be sure to know who you’re pitching to – what approach should you use with this lead to initiate an exchange and establish an emotional connection? Conversation will only aid in learning more information that you can use in your pitch.
The handling of objections is where your soft skills shine. A customer might have concerns about your product/service. In this scenario you must be sympathetic and offer them a counter to their concerns which will assist them in overcoming their uncertainty and progress the transaction.
There is a chance you will encounter objections at any stage of the process. Because of this, it is crucial that whenever possible you should predict and anticipate any opposition the lead may have to your ideas.
As the name suggests, this is our speciality here at The Elite Closing Academy. Closing is the stage in the sales process where all your efforts lead to. It is now that you apply certain strategies to persuade the customer to affirmatively say yes. Speak confidently and assume they are going to say yes. If they seem reluctant, provide incentives and address remaining issues with solutions to bring extra value. Sign up with The Academy today for elite value based sales training.
Sometimes you need to play the long game. Research has shown that 80 percent of prospects report saying “no” at least four times before finally saying “yes”. The Academy provides you with the sales training programs necessary to navigate rejection and use this to gain advantage.
When possible, it’s essential to follow up to key accounts after agreeing deals. It could be to put aspects of the agreement into practice for the customer or to offer after-purchase support for customers. This is key to building customer loyalty and if you believe they’re interested in other products or services, could be the point at which your buying process restarts.
The Elite Closing Academy, we will help you through every stage of the process. We ensure that sales teams are skilled at closing and will almost be sure that your organisation can convert leads into outstanding sales results.
