This is the Secret of Sales

Imagine if there was a secret to successful selling.

Imagine if there was one concept, one rule you could learn and follow, and if you learned and applied this rule, then you would successfully be able to sell any product or service you chose to.

And not only would you be able to sell these products or services, but—if you learned and applied this secret—you would sell more than anyone in your company or in your industry.

In addition, you would also be able to sell more with less stress, less rejection, and sales would actually become, dare I say it?—easy.

As you know, selling and easy rather occur in the same sentence, but by learning and applying this secret, they will.

And here is the secret:

Sales is nothing more than a set of recurring selling situations that you encounter over and over again.

You get the same brush offs when prospecting, the same objections when closing, the same ghosting when following up.

Let me prove it to you: regardless of your product, service, or industry, do any of these selling situations sound familiar?

When prospecting, has a decision maker or influencer or office manager ever told you:

  • “Just email me some information.”
  • “We’re happy with who we’re using.”
  • “We aren’t interested.”
  • “I’ll have to check with my boss.”

And when closing a sale or presenting your product or service, how many times do you run into:

  • “That’s a bit more than we want to spend.”
  • “It’s just not the right time for us.”
  • “Let me think about it and get back to you.”
  • “I’m going to need to talk to the committee/boss/my partner, etc.”
  • “Can you email me more information?”

Now, I’ve never met many of you reading this right now, and I don’t know what you’re selling, but I’ll bet these cover 80% of the objections you get, right?

And that’s because selling is a set of recurring situations that contain the same objections, stalls, and you get them over and over again.

And therein lies the secret to successful selling:

Learn exactly what to say—in advance—of getting these recurring objections.

Now this may sound like a “duh!” moment but let me share another secret with you: 90% of sales reps don’t do this. Instead, they ad-lib, make things up, and use poor responses over and over again.

Poor responses that don’t work!

The answer?

Script out—in advance—two or three “best practice” responses to the recurring selling situations you get into all the time.

Practice, drill, rehearse these responses until they become your automatic way of responding.

Doing this will change your sales results, your day-to-day experience in selling, and ultimately your career and your life.

Your choice really comes down to: Struggle and underperform, or sell easily, confidently, and make more money than 90% of your competition.

If you choose the latter, then you can start with over 500 proven scripts you can adapt to fit all the selling situations you run into.

Get it here.

And start learning and practicing the secret to successful selling.

One Mistake to Avoid When Pitching

Here’s a mistake I hear over and over again when listening to sales reps pitching or presenting their services over the phone: when they hear a possible objection or something negative from their prospect, they go into pitch mode.

It’s as if they think they just need to tell the prospect more, or list endless benefits and that at some point the prospect will say, “Ah, yes! That’s what I needed to hear!”

Sadly, pitching more when you hear a possible negative is exactly the wrong thing to so.

The right thing?

Stop and begin asking questions. Get curious. Dive into the possible problem area and find out why it’s a problem. How much of a problem it is. And, most importantly, learn how to deal with it—that is, if it’s even something that can be overcome.

Here’s the thing: the average closing rate is two or three deals out of ten prospects pitched. That means seven people aren’t buying!

So, if you’re talking over or past objections, then you aren’t learning how to deal with them. You’re certainly not learning how to overcome them. Instead, you’re practicing poor sales skills over and over again.

And that’s not how to get better.

You’ve heard that saying: “Practice makes perfect?”

That’s totally wrong.

Practice only makes permanent.

If you’re practicing poor selling skills day in day out, you’ll get really good at being…well…being a poor sales person!

Quickest way to get better: next time you get an objection or negative response, stop. Ask questions. And ask yourself is this is one of the seven prospects who aren’t buying. Or is it one of the three who will buy?

And then ask yourself what you need to say to sell them. And you’ll only learn that by being curious and asking questions.

Not pitching…
