Stop Selling, engage in conversations

Running with You the Sales Reps


I suppose you may have heard this many times the FIRST TIME I did was in 1981, out dated you may say, I doubt it ????

Why,
Most sales people are too much of a salesman/lady.

You need to be your natural self, which means-

- Which means your manner, mannerisms,
- Your voice, tone
- The words you use, must be part of a normal conversation
- Your expressions

Many buyers today are put off with the above as they were back in the day, buyers back in the day became nervous of sales people, today they see them with contempt, being pushy.

Most sales people blame their employer/company for their sales short comings, relook at yourself, it is you bud, yep do a reality check.

ARE You really a Winner

Running with You the Sales Rep


It is amazing how many reps I come across who have the gift of the tongue, can talk a story, but can not walk the walk, and along with it they are so arrogant.

I feel deep down for many sales managers, or should I, our are the sales managers part of the issue.

Been having sales conversations with reps re being in a sales slump, via my online coaching platform www.saleswisdom.co.za and face to face.

They are trying to close deals, but have not followed a defined sales process, and wonder why, no effort,no real effort at establishing the right level of two way understanding. POOR???

One reps said he is not in a slump, so I asked him has he smashed his target March and April, no was the reply, and his is not in a sales slump????

get real.

Do YOU really understand your are in a SALES WAR

Running with you the Sales rep

Sales wars every day, that's the game, your clients in a week, a month are being hit by all or most of your competitors.

So how are you playing the war, here are few tips-

1 which clients seem to be your FRIEND, but do not give you a key portion /% of their business

2 find out through great questioning techniques which competitors keep knocking at your clients door and take proactive action to cut them out.

3 reinforce at every opportunity when communicating with your clients how valuable you are to them, it will be come second nature, it is an art, make it an art

4 ensure that you understand your clients customers/ markets, really understand, and show that you do understand when chatting face to face,

5 continually remember that we all believe we have better relationships, than what they actually are.

ARE YOU A MASTER CLOSER

Running with you the Sales Rep


Yes as a rep, you are always being hounded by your Boss man re your closure rate/ conversation rate.


Amazing that about 64% of reps do not hit their targets, I wonder why, HERE IS WHY

- lack of sales techniques up skilling
- do not know where they are in their sales process and buyers in their buying process
- have not gone through with client prospects the correct questions to ask
- did not do consultative selling , then solution selling and while this was happening was not building the right level of relationships (ABR)always building relationships.

Master Closers do many things, here are few-

- look when to see logic vs emotion or both at the same time
- over comes clients fear factor in making a go decision
- can handle any objection thrown at him
- he is always closing(abc) through out his journey with the client
- knows money is always the issue

cool, many more, www.saleswisdom.co.za

Complex Buying team/ buying process

Running with You the Sales Rep


We all come across the above, plus the buying cycle is usually 3 to 12 months, yep sometimes longer.

So can you collapse the TIME LINE.

Must ask key questions when face to face with the many buyers etc that are at your first meeting

- who is involved in the decision making process once you have demonstrated your solution

-find out who are the most influential D/M

-what is each D/M key focus areas, you pick this up while you are chatting face to face

-who in the buying cycle "moves your deal/ solution to the next step/ person in the decision making process" and how quickly.

cool to name a few things you need to focus on.

Your Sales Mind, MASTER it in 2018

Running with you the Sales Rep

Yep. time to take hold of your sales mentality, how you think about your sales profession, are you proud to say you are a sales man,( I am 36 years in the game, ) many give their title which does not have the words sales man/ lady on their business cards.

Multiply your sales thinking, multiply your sales value, really look how you will be different in 2018.


Be Genuine, be memorable( look at ways you can do this), send out positive energy, be firm but fair, lay the right ground work, keep it simple but focused, but focused, focused.

You can have a wonderful sales year, believe, believe, forget the past.


Cool

2018 Sales Days

Running with you the Sales Rep


From my 35 years in the game, I know very few reps look at the above.

Sales is about numbers and %, so it is a great place to start by looking at how many sales days you have to Smash your Yearly Sales target.
 Cool good point Guy,

212 days not 365? not 300? not 252?


212 days divide by 21 day month equals 10 months to crack your 12 month sales target., pretty simple

Then look at how many hours per day do you actually sell, yes face to face( B2B reps )

Say 3 hours per day times 212 days equals 636 hours in the year, go do more numbers of your own, interesting.
