Don’t let Cold calling freaking you out! Learn to Sell or Die by Douglas Vermeeren

leave a comment »

Ltsd Cold calls
Yes, there are a lot of frightening things in sales. But none are so feared as the cold call. What will you say to that complete stranger on the other end of the line? How do you get them to listen? What will happen if you disturb them? What if they hang up on you? What if they stay on the line and are actually interested? All of these things can create massive anxiety and fear. To win better at this game try this interesting formula to use when building your call:
 
Frame – Give the prospect a Frame to receive your call. “Hello Mr. Jones, My name is XXX and I’m specifically calling you to talk about your lawn care today. (or financial planning, real estate needs, dental work …whatever your business happens to be.)
 
Expose your difference and challenge- Share what makes this call different than others. “I know you get lots of calls like this. But I am calling with something very different than anything you’ve experienced before and I would like to prove it to you.”
 
Reveal the commitment – Here’s where you tell them what you are wanting from them. Make sure that it is not an unreasonable ask. If you ask for something that easy to say yes then you will get a yes. For most business you won’t be seeking to close a sale at this stage. Most people want to get to the next step in the sales cycle. Most likely that means presenting.) “Mr. Jones I’d like to meet with you for 15 minutes and show you something that you most likely haven’t been aware of that will make you very happy.
 
CTC – This is the CALL to Commitment. “I am right by your house/office meeting with several others in your area on Tuesday. I can squeeze you in for a quick 15 minute visit at 3:00. Will that work?”
 
Again this isn’t the only way to structure a cold call but our team and students have been getting great numbers using this. I’ll explain why later on. For now try it today!

The new dynamic of selling that everyone is missing – Douglas Vermeeren, Learn to Sell or Die.

LEARN_TO_SELLFinalLet’s keep this simple. You’re busy I’m bust. So everyone talks about B2C (Business to consumer) selling, and they also talk about B2B (Business to business selling) These are the way average sales people sell. They prospect by hunting those they want to sell to whether business or consumers. they then try to convince them to become transactional with them by trying to present them a multiple of reasons why in some kind of sales presentation.

Top sellers in todays marketplace understand that dynamic has really changed. Engagement is the key and considering the platforms available in today marketplace there is no excuse to not become connected to your prospect in more powerful ways. In fact, if you listen closely and become engaged in the conversations taking place amongst your prospects you’ll find the true dynamic today whether you were traditionally B2B or B2C is now C2B. In other words consumer to your business.

Because of the internet and how the world has shrunken relationship and connection has surpassed information, products and even pricing.

So the question becomes a better of understanding and engagement. What are you doing right now to build stronger relationships with your prospect in the way they want to be contacted and approached. What are you doing to approach them in ways that are not intrusive? What are you doing to give them reasons to connect with you rather than you trying to prove your worth? How are you giving value and positioning yourself as a valuable resource to them, without consideration of sales?

This is the new economy folks and if you can’t play by the new rules today you are going to die and your business will go with you.

Now get back to work.

Learn to Sell or Die – Douglas Vermeeren Sales tip 117

leave a comment »

Every objection has a solution. If you haven’t discovered that solution most likely you haven’t understood the objection. #douglasvermeeren #topseller #topsalestraining #1salestrainer #1salescoach #learntosellordie

It is important to note that there is a difference between an objection which is surmountable and a condition which is not surmountable. Conditions should be resolved at the stage where you qualify the prospect. (A condition for example is someone who reveals that they don’t have the authority to make a decision, someone who does have the money to buy your product, some who reveals they don’t have a need, etc.)

More on this in upcoming project I am working on regarding overcoming objections. Who is interested to learn more?

Engagement is the key to connecting with customers.

Recently I was witness to a sales presentation that seemed to go on and on without any kind of participation from the prospect. Instead the “rockstar” presenter took the stage and although he had the prospect smiling and laughing not once did he slow down for participation. At the conclusion of the offer the prospect thanked the rockstar for the good time but decided to pass. Looking back on the situation it wasn’t because the prospect didn’t need or couldn’t afford the product. It really came down to the fact that the prospect was not engaged. There was no connection between the prospect and the product.

So here’s the question for you today?

Connection comes from engagement. How are you getting your customers engaged when you share your offers?
