What Will I Learn?
  • By taking this course, a seasoned professional sales person will be able to refine their skills, create useful habits, improve their style, maximize efforts, remove doubts on contrary sales methods and add confidence to their abilities. We use the natural habits of human nature and the underlying psychology to find a prospect, understand the motivation and create a sale. For those in the beginning of their career, a comprehensive understanding of the entire sales process will guide them to a more confident approach to each prospect, and hence derive a far better closing ratio.
  • Selling is a natural act common to all human affairs. Everyone is involved in trying to persuade another person to either do or not do something on a daily basis. Most of the time it's just a simple request, but occasionally the task becomes more complex. Understanding human motivation and the corresponding methodologies that aid in the fulfillment of that desire is at the heart of selling. Having a simple, yet organized template for uncovering anyone's motive for almost any purpose is demonstrated in this course.
  • The objective here is to teach you lifelong skills that will help increase your ability to close any type of sale, improve your chances of succeeding in an ever increasing competitive marketplace, and help you gain confidence in your personal life by identifying, understanding, and interacting with the four major personality types. Once you learn the skills, improving your ability to close a sale will only increase your income and create lifelong prosperity.

Requirements
  • The course does not require any special skills or prior experience. Since selling is a basic fact of life, honing these skills for the professional is an important aspect to stay at the top of their field. However, it is also important for the average lay person to fully grasp the concepts of how they are perceived by a sales person and use those same skills to improve their own ability in dealing with personal or business relationships.

Using Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs provides a glimpse into the real motivation behind a prospect's interest. Funneling the desires and needs while eliminating the superfluous provides an easy transition into closing a sale.

First impressions set the tone of every meeting. This lesson takes it from both the buyer and seller's point of view. What do each see and what does each expect.

First Impressions & Appearance
12:26

The main purpose of a sales pro is to make a sale. The sale is predicated upon the buyer's true motivation. The motivation revolves around fulfilling the wants, needs and desires of a prospect. Fulfillment implies a lack of something on the part of the buyer - and that's a problem. Solving that problem then becomes the most important role of the sales pro.

Solve The Problem

Explaining each function of an organized procedure from the first encounter with a prospect that includes examples is the focus of this lecture. Although the "Presentation" isn't always used in some sales situations, it is by far the most useful of any tool available.

How To Ask The Question

Confirming the facts of a meeting removes any doubts as to what the prospect really wants and is willing to pay for, creating a stepping stone to the close.

Confirming The Facts

The Take Away

Objections
08:12

Negatives are also objections, but more aligned to a prospect or client's attitude than the more common money, time, features, or use. This lesson explores how to deal with difficult clients who have either legitimate complaints or simple misunderstanding due to poor communication or some other equally unnecessary perceived malfeasance.
