Why are "selling skills" vital for your success?

No matter what industry sectors you are in, there will always be a desire for 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, but specifically in sales management specifically, without learning the correct sales methodology it is likely that you are burning leads and wasting a lot of your time and money.

Sales professionals need to be able to develop a sales strategy that is thoroughly optimised for the customer they are targeting, using best practices and tailored processes which will set the foundation for an organisation’s sales effectiveness and overall success. This is where our sales training courses come in.

Salesperson stereotype

Imagine the stereotypical salesperson

There is a good chance that we’ve all met the stereotypical salesperson – think of a sales manager at a car dealership for instance. A lively, fast-talking extrovert who is repeating the same tiresome routine to every person they meet. These people usually won’t allow you to get a word in and throw all the sales jargon at you in such a manner that it’s like they’re talking at you, not to you. This approach to selling gives the impression that the customer’s cash is more valuable to them than their happiness.

This is one of the biggest mistakes that are made by sales professionals. Many salespeople do not realise that selling is a two-way process. Engaging in active listening allows you to recognise customer concerns and gives you the opportunity to address these buyer pain points. This can add value to the product/service you are trying to sell and suddenly gives  you with an advantage over most competitors.

Customers like to know they are being heard and you’re doing everything in your power assist and guide them in their purchasing decision. This kind of customer service help close deals for your company, it will also increase 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 you can close more sales.

THE SALES
  PROCESS

In order to convert a prospective customer from an early stage lead to a finalised deal, you as a salesperson should follow a key structure that is comprised of crucial and repeatable actions. This is called the sales process or the sales cycle. The sales training programs will give you the knowledge and tools necessary to master this process.

Prospecting

Prospecting is the initial phase of this sales process. Here you will manage sales opportunities, research possible customers, and reach out to contacts with the aim of creating leads and securing the business.

Preparation

At this point, spend time getting familiar with the company or person you’re planning to pitch to and learn about their business and the industry as a whole. This will allow you to find possible issues that you can then offer a solution to with your service or product and resolve customer concerns. Being aware of your prospect’s situation will make you look more credible and increase your chances of getting good sales results.

Presentation

This is an essential aspect in the sales process. This is where you can tell your prospects how your product/service can benefit them, based on your previous research done.

Support your claims with data and statistics. A solution-based approach can only be successful if you prove to the customer that your product/service will solve their problems and add extra value.

Ensure you know your audience – what approach should you use with this lead to initiate conversation and build a rapport? Conversations will only provide you with more information to incorporate into your pitch.

Objection Handling

Objection handling is where your soft skills will shine. The customer may be concerned about your product or service. In this case you must be sympathetic and provide a solution to their concern to help them overcome their doubts and move forward with the deal.

You can encounter an objection at any stage of the process. Therefore, it is important that wherever possible you should predict and anticipate any objection the lead may have to your suggestions.

Follow up

When possible, it’s essential to follow up on key accounts after agreeing deals. This might be to implement a portion of the deal into action for the client or offer after-purchase support for customers. This is essential to build customer loyalty .
