Step 9 Ask For Referrals

Think about this possibiity - what if every person you meet gave you a viable referral, and that referral turned into a client? You believe in your product/service, so much so, you attach your name to it - think about the positive impact you can make by reaching one more person (and their family).
 
We choose our business (traditional or home-based) because we resonate with how we can help people live better lives. Have the courage to ASK for a referral, and help your person introduce you by having something pre-written to avoid delays because "I'm too busy or I don't know what to say" creeps into their mind.

Step 8 Follow Up

"I stink at follow up" - I hear this over and over from business owners - it's no wonder: 48% of all sales people never follow up with their prospect. 25% stop following up after the 2nd contact.

Step 7 Handling Objections

my sales accelerator Apr 29, 2019

Most people are fine with working through Steps 1 through 5 that I've posted, however, when they get to step #6 "Asking for the Order" and #7 "Handling Objections" they freeze and don't want to ask. Why? Because they don't want to hear the word "No" AND they are afraid they might get asked a question they may not know the answer to.

This is an opportunity for growth! Choose to be bold and work through the feelings of nervousness, uncertainty and all the "What if...?" questions that may flood your mind. Let's address hearing an objection - this just means your prospect has a question that you didn't cover in your presentation. Perfect! When you welcome questions, you'll get to know what's on your prospect's mind and you can turn into problem solving mode (which will chase off nerves!) Your prospect is looking to you to help guide them to the product/service that best suits their needs.

Step 4 Assessing Needs

Many people will make the mistake of launching right into their presentation with their prospect before they take the time to find out what product/service they're currently using. Even more important, are they happy with the results with their current product/service?

If you skip this step, at the end of your presentation, your prospect could say, "thank you, but I'm using product ____, and I'm happy with it." Also, when you take the time to assess their needs first, you can address how your product/service can help them solve____ problem.

Step 3 Trust and Rapport

In the sales process, most people will get too focused on the outcome (making the sale) instead of building a lasting relationship. What's an easy way to start a conversation? Use this acronym to get to know anyone: F.O.R.M (Family, Occupation, Recreation, Motivation/Money)

You'll be surprised how the conversation will lead into getting to know someone when your focus is honoring the person instead of the sale.

Step 2 Appointment Setting

Are you making the mistake of saying too much? When you're asking for an appointment, this isn't the time to dive into your presentation. Make the appointment, confirm the date & time, and end the conversation. #WhyPeopleScreenYourCalls

Step 1 Lead Generation

You don’t have to be born with sales skills - but you do need to have a proven system! This is step 1: Lead Generation (it sounds simple but you’d be shocked how many people don’t do this!)

Generating leads by meeting new people daily, and adding them to your database and follow up system, is critical to grow any business. Keep yourself accountable by setting a goal each day and week of how many new people you will go out and meet. Reward yourself when you hit that number. Do this over and over without fail. 

Meet. Present. Follow Up.

Yesterday (I Thought) I Was Clever...

my sales accelerator Apr 20, 2019

"Yesterday I was clever, so I want to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself." -Rumi

As I read this quote I reflect on how many times in the past I tried to change others, when in reality, the only one we have the control to change is ourselves. If you find yourself stressed, frustrated, and irritated with others - STOP what you are doing and take the time to reflect. What do you need to change about yourself, your actions, your words, your integrity that would remove the stress, frustration and irritation you're causing in your relationships?

Do It...Even If You Have To Crawl

Meet Micah Herndon who finished the Boston Marathon last weekend...his legs gave out and he crawled across the finish line. What I love about his story is he served our country in the Marines, where he lost three of his buddies, and every time he wanted to quit, he kept repeating their names over and over. He runs to honor them and their families because he's here and they aren't.

What an inspiration to never quit, and showing all of us how he honors his fallen, fellow Marines. #NoExcuses #SemperFi
Don't give up - take one more step towards your goal...even if you have to crawl!

To Your Success,

Kristi
