Why someone doesn’t want to buy from you

I’m often asked by clients and students; so ‘how do you turn sales objections in selling points?’

I love this question because it seems to stump so many people as they wrestle with why they aren’t getting more sales. But, why would you want someone to buy something from you that they objected to? You wouldn’t, right?

So let’s get serious and spend a few minutes unpacking what handling an objection is mainly about.

After all, needing to handle objections is an absolute certainty in sales … it will definitely happen, so you’ll want to be super clear on what to do.

No Stress Sales

A wimps six-point guide to making sales calls

If you like to back out at the first opportunity when making sales calls then this quick-fire guide will help you get the job done with less stress.

1. Get ready to listen 

Listening sounds like it should be a cinch but you’ll be surprised how many sales people don’t do this at all. You’ve all answered the phone to hear someone launch into ‘robot’ mode and gabble on about what service/product they are offering. You can’t wait to get them off the phone, right?

Instead start the conversation by actually listening. Have a killer opening question and listen carefully to the answer rather than thinking ahead about how you can ‘sell, sell, sell’.  The killer question will depend on your relationship with the customer but once you know how, it’s really easy to think of one.
