Why are "selling skills" important for big wins?
Whatever industry 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 in sales management is essential. Professional selling skills are crucial for any position, however for sales management specifically, without understanding the right sales methodology it is likely that you are losing leads and wasting a lot of your time and cash.
Sales personnel must be able to create a 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 focus attention.
Imagine the stereotypical salesperson
Chances are that we have seen the stereotypical salesperson – imagine the sales manager at a car dealership for instance. A lively, 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 edgeways and they throw so much sales jargon your way it feels 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 happiness.
This is one of the most costly mistakes made by sales professionals. Too many salespeople forget that selling is a two-way interaction. Active listening helps you to identify customer concerns and gives you the opportunity to address these buyer pain points. This adds value to the product/service you are trying to sell and suddenly gives you with an advantage over most competitors.
Customers want to feel they are being heard and you are doing everything in your power help and support them to their purchasing decision. This kind of customer service assist in closing deals for you and your business, but it also increases the probability for repeat business.
Our 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 make more deals.
To convert a potential customer from an initial lead to a sale, you as the salesperson must adhere to a certain framework made up of important and repeatable actions. 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 initial phase of your sales process. This is where you manage sales opportunities, research prospective customers and connect with contacts with the aim of generating leads and securing business.
Qualifying leads is a crucial procedure to determine the leads you will consider as a priority to follow up. Leads should be classified by the possibility of them becoming customers and this can be determined by your primary data, secondary statistics or even customer personas.
At this stage you should spend time getting familiar with the company or person you are planning to present your idea to, and also become familiar with their business and the industry in general. This will enable you pinpoint the potential issues you can then provide a solution to with your service or product and resolve customer concerns. Knowing the needs of your lead and their circumstance will help you appear more credible and increase your chances of good sales results.
This is an essential aspect in this stage of the sales process. You will be able to tell your lead how your product/service will be of value to them, based on the research you’ve previously conducted.
Back up your assertions by providing data and stats. A solution-based approach can only succeed if you can prove to the customer that your product or service can solve their problems and bring additional value.
Be sure to know who you’re pitching to – what approach should you use with this lead to begin an exchange and build a rapport? The conversation will help you learn more information to incorporate into your pitch.
Objection handling is where your soft skills will shine. The customer may be concerned about your product or service. In this situation you must be empathetic and offer them a counter to their issue to help them overcome their concerns and help them move forward with the transaction.
You can encounter an objection at any point within the process. Therefore, it is essential that whenever you are ready to handle this and anticipate any objection the lead may have to your ideas.

It is now that you employ certain tactics to finally persuade the customer to accept the offer. Summarise with confidence and assume they are going to accept what you are offering.

When possible, it’s important to follow-up on key accounts after agreeing deals.
