Thanks, I am just looking….. </li></ul><ul><li>Low-volume sales people tell them to ‘’ go right ahead” without realizing that most of the time they are sending their customers out of their store without a sale. </li></ul>

  11. 11. Phase 1 The Greeting Summary <ul><li>Customers do not want to be sold. </li></ul><ul><li>Most customers consider the average salespersons approach as a threat to sell them something against their will. Even if customers ask to see specific item are likely to do so with some trepidation. </li></ul><ul><li>Most people who come into your store would really like to ask a few questions but their aversion to being ‘sold’ they claim they just want to look. </li></ul><ul><li>By standing in one place not blocking a customers entrance into a store and giving a warm smile helps to lower the perceived threat. </li></ul><ul><li>By asking if you can direct them to something or reduces the threat of selling them something. </li></ul><ul><li>The real secret of the greeting is – I will try to tell you where it is located. Try implies that you will only be giving directions. </li></ul>

  23. 23. Phase 3 Presentation Summary Benefits, Benefits, Benefits Price Perceived value and Return on Investment
  24. 24. Phase 3.1 Objections <ul><li>During the Presentation phase customers may express concerns or objections about buying. </li></ul><ul><li>Properly handled, most customer objections are actually steps to the sale! </li></ul><ul><li>Do not use canned sales techniques- customers can see right through it! </li></ul><ul><li>Validate the objection- Always validate the objection and never argue or disagree with the customer. Repeat back the objection. NEVER respond to the objection immediately. </li></ul><ul><li>ASK a question! The best way to deal with an objection is to ask a question. Here are six powerful words that is important to a salesperson’s life. Who? What? When? Why? How? </li></ul><ul><li>Find the real concern and help solve the customers problem. Treat the objection as questions and uncover the solution. </li></ul><ul><li>Prepare common objections by writing them down. Anticipate those objections and be prepared to solve them with the customer. </li></ul><ul><li>Return to presenting benefits! </li></ul>
  25. 25. Phase 3.1 Objections <ul><li>Price Objections are the most common. Remember by providing numerous benefits you are creating a perceived value and return on investment of your product and company. Price vs Cost. </li></ul><ul><li>Objections are actually buying signs. Do not taking them as negative. The sales professional handles objections by realizing they are requests for information. </li></ul><ul><li>Some objections are legitimate! </li></ul><ul><li>An objection to buying may be legitimate reason why the customer will not buy. </li></ul><ul><li>For example: </li></ul><ul><li>There is no way I could afford this phone or plan since I am working part time. </li></ul><ul><li>This type of objection surface in the qualifying phase of the sale. The sales professional rarely if ever gets sidetracked on this type of situation. She recognizes a true condition and accepts it, wasting no time chasing rainbows. </li></ul>
  26. 26. Phase 4 Closing <ul><li>The NA=GA Close – NA=GA stands for Needs Assessment gets you answers –In this technique you are reiterating the reasons you have assessed with your presentation and qualifying stages and turning it into a close. </li></ul><ul><li>For example: “I know from our discussion that this BlackBerry is going to give you the email and calendaring function you wanted and will give you the durability that you wanted. Let’s write it up then. How did you want to pay for this then? </li></ul><ul><li>If you have fully followed the sequence of providing benefits and properly qualified the customers needs, this closing technique will be a way to ensure you have met all of the customers needs. </li></ul>
  27. 27. Phase 4 Closing <ul><li>There are many ways the ‘experts’ have come up with how to close a customer. My experience has shown that the most successful way to close a sale is to follow the flow of qualifying, presentation, and close with reiterating benefits to solve customers issues and wants and needs. </li></ul><ul><li>If you have done all of the steps and the customer still says thanks for your time- Try to ask one last question. </li></ul><ul><li>May I ask why you decided not to purchase a phone/accessory/service today? </li></ul><ul><li>Depending on the answer you may be able to still salvage the sale with more information for the customer. </li></ul>
  28. 28. Phase 5 Post Sale <ul><li>Selling Accessories </li></ul><ul><li>Selling ad-ons such as accessories should be subtle. You do not want so seem to pressure the customer but add additional advice. As a customer advisor making suggestions such a bluetooth headset to assist with the customers need to drive and use the phone can add another benefit to the value proposition. </li></ul><ul><li>Offer the customer your card and mention the fact that you hope they think of you for their future mobile needs or questions. </li></ul><ul><li>If you capture personal data on the customer such as an address. Send a thank you card. You will always be remembered and can build a customer for life. </li></ul>
