How to Remove the objections Price

Do you step your way through the process of selling only satisfied the objections your prospects in your prices? Scenario unfolds too often for many small businesses owners.The day I was talking to Joan who lamented how he spent a ton of time developing relationships with new prospects, but in the end will not be able to make the sale. In his six meetings sales prospects look like a slam dunk. He was very enthusiastic about his product (inventory control software for the food service industry), he see similar products on the market (Joan software has a unique interface and easy to use) and he and Joan seemed to have a good relationship (they both are avid snow boarder and each loves jazz). But when it came time for Joan to ask the business the answer is 'no'. Her hot prospects cool in his price.

Where Joan not wrong? He was somewhat confused deals collapsed and he wants to know what he could do to prevent future failures. Not only did he not get the business, he ultimately wasting precious time would be better spent generating leads sale.Does confirmed this sound familiar? Have you ever spent time building a big lead only to have the deal fall apart because your prospect something in your price If so, you may need to make the same common mistakes made sales Joan:? He was trying to make a sale without enough information to make the right offer its prospects, despite his six positive sales meetings.What Joan neglected to do was to ask him about the prospects its accounting needs with respect to inventory control. Unfortunately for Joan, she learned an important truth only after our conversation when he called back prospects to find out where he went wrong. 

His prospects who decided to use the software from one of its competitors. Even Joan software has good accounting package, he offered nothing, including that related to accounting. His prospects it is assumed that the software does not have the necessary accounting functions because Joan did not mention it. He discussion about the many innovative, easy to use software interface and database functions are great but he never mentions his accounting features as the prospect is not requested. The prices would be better if his prospects know about his ability accounting software! During the process of selling you are sure to ask all questions must be answered to understand the needs of your prospects. Then you can use the information you purchased to build a pitch about exactly what is going to solve your prospects problems.Before to tell your prospects make sure the price is right time to ask questions such as:? · 

Does it sound · Is there anything I have not mentioned help? · What do you like about our products or services of a competitor? By getting answers to these questions will be able to gauge whether or not you have enough information to make an offer that your prospects are advised to be hot decline.If not have enough return for additional information, to schedule another meeting and then go through another round probing questions.If have enough information to make your prospects the best deal they have ever heard. If you've done your homework enough to make a sale.

Having my competitors Better Products

This article's subject matter is a response to the question posed by one of my newsletter readers. Question - "At this moment, my competitors have a much better product / deal, due to circumstances beyond my control, however, customers go to a competitor and then come to me to compare How I go about assuring our customers .. services / products better on paper does not it? " Answer - Thank you for the question. I'll answer it as far as I could without knowing what you or your competitors sell. I believe this is a common experience for many of us in sales. Customers use our free of charge for all types of free - information, demos, test drives by, consultancy, etc. 

Of course, this is ready to give something free to expose people to your offer (I was an example of this newsletter). It has become too much however, and it was our fault in the sales profession. We have been struck with thinks we need to do whatever our customers request. We had to jump through hoops like a dog tricks, which makes us just a little closer to * maybe * get sales. Internet should be used as a marketing tool. The purpose of which is to build a lead free. And that's where a free gift should be terminated. Once you have the lead, and were able to engage customers in conversation alive, ends and valuable marketing begins. Successful sales is an exchange of value for value. It has always been like this because people traded grain and cloth for poultry and pigs. 

Today our professional sales "represent" a company and its products. This is why we are called "sales representative". We act as an agent, representing the trading companies, which represent our company in exchange of value for value. As a sales agent, we offer significant value to our prospective customers. Yes our products have value, but I do not talk about it. Value that we offer our knowledge and our time. We know a lot about our products, about our industry, about the future trends in our market, of our competitors, and many other things. We sell our products everyday. Our customers (most of them at least) do not buy this product every day. So in our knowledge has value. If you do not believe this is true, then you have to think about it a little more, or you work in the industry are going to get disintermediated by e-commerce. So what should you do? Respect your value as a salesperson. 

 Get commitment from your prospect. Get a commitment - to qualify them for the pain / first desire, budget, and decision-making skills, before presenting the details about your products. Get a commitment to make a definite decision after your presentation or proof step of your sales cycle. For this to work, you should still raised really good to get a critical illness / want to drive sales. You should know that they have the money to buy it. And you will be presenting the decision maker. You only have so many hours in a day, so use it well. If any future agreements Chase your way, you lose the real sales that you can go out and look. Violate one of these rules, you are rolling the dice and simple. (Yes I know it works for some people - but you never really make it big in sales winging this way). Note that what I have described above is the reverse order of how many salespeople have learned to sell. The main thing I tell you to do here, is to show AFTER you have qualified prospects and THEN you have the commitment to make a decision. 

 If you have a long sales cycle that involves various levels of decision-making, you can use the same approach. Instead of getting a commitment for advance decisions, you can get a commitment to perform the appropriate next step. It could be a meeting with the higher levels of decision-makers, or can get the right to give a presentation to an audience that is more influential. I call this "chaining commitment". This is the best solution. By taking the commitment, you will stop wasting time with people who are not serious about you. By asking the right questions up front (a topic for another newsletter), you may find something you missed the competition, giving you the opportunity to change the rules set out in the initial sales to your competitors being there first. If your product is not good, I do not believe you can persuade or convince someone that. Most people are not stupid. 

Eventually they will know you are trying to pull one over on them, if they do not know that when you actually try to do it with them. Finally, even the most competitive products, as the two products usually have a few advantages over products as one. Identify the pros, and focus your efforts on selling to prospects who want to benefit. Create questions designed to uncover pain / desire that will cause a person to want such benefits. Follow the above questions and the first commitment, final presentation, and you'll find yourself making money even if you sell for the company as one. © 1999-2004 Shamus Brown, All Rights Reserved.
