Salespeople Mistakes

Posted: March 24, 2010 in Business

Avoid This Mistakes if your work depend on sales :

1. Thinking you can do it all yourself.
Selling used to be a numbers game. In the past you could spend your time smiling and dialing and that might have worked. Today too many people are too busy to listen to a pitch. Cold calls are a low probability and only worth your time if your time isn’t worth very much. The assistance sales people need from others is good solid leads and referrals to meet new customers.

2. Talking too much.
The best sellers are great listeners and they use silence well. Silence is really golden in selling. Use it when you want your customers to talk more. Silence is appropriate when you are listening so you don’t interrupt your customer. It’s appropriate to use when you think about what your customer is saying. This will enable you to give him a thoughtful response.

3. Doing the same things in all situations.
One of the predictors of success is flexibility or the ability to do different things in different situations. Customers are different and the salesperson needs to respond to the type of customer he is talking to.

5. Not telling the truth.
Salespeople need to be honest not only with customers, but with themselves as well. Some salespeople fool themselves that a sale is going to happen when the odds are it’s not.  Be honest with yourself. Let go and get going to the next prospect.

6. Not taking good care of customers.
Selling isn’t asking a question to find objections and then beating your customer into submission for each objection. If it’s not a reasonable fit, forget the sale. Find the prospects that do need your benefits and value.

7. Thinking it’s easy.
People think selling is easy only because the great salespeople make it look easy. ” Selling is only easy when you don’t know what you’re doing.

You can learn from your mistakes. It’s even better to learn from other people’s mistakes. Avoid these mistakes and you will make your selling more successful.

My Point Of View :

I think all people Are Salespeople , We might sell products , we might sell our souls 😛 LA “J/K” , I mean Even if you are applying for a job it’s just like selling your qualifications to the company , And also when you love someone it’s like selling your feelings for him . If you did something bad it’s like selling one of your good manners . You can sell your relationship by Ending it with any excuse.

And The list goes on , that’s why I see all people as sellers .

P.S : Anyone want to sell his soul,life or mind , I would buy it only if it was a good offer but just keep in your mind that I’m a reseller ;r “J/K” :]
