    11. 11. STEP 1 - PROSPECTING • Finding and identifying buyers who are most likely to buy the product or service. • Ways to qualify leads: cold calls by telephone, email, through social networking, or personal referrals. The word "cold" refers to fact that the person receiving the call is not expecting it or has not specifically asked to be contacted by a sales person.
    12. 12. STEP 2 – PRE-APPROACH • Prepare for the presentation. • It consists of customer research and goal planning.
    13. 13. STEP 3 – THE APPROACH • Initial meeting between the salesperson and the customer. • Assessment step - the customer’s need for the product is evaluated by the salesperson. • During this step, questions are asked to identify the current situation, the source and impact of any problems, the benefits of the product as part of the solution, and the buyer’s level of interest.
    14. 14. STEP 4 – PRESENTATION & DEMONSTRATION • To grab the buyer’s attention, ignite interest, create desire, and inspire action (AIDA) by showing the product’s advantages and benefits. • At this point, customer objections involving price, value, adequacy, the commitment to buy, or other issues are addressed. • Successful salespeople anticipate objections and respond to them respectfully before advancing to gaining commitment, which involves closing the deal or making the sale.
    15. 15. STEP 5 – CLOSING THE DEAL Different types of methods to close deals: the alternative close, the assumptive close, the summary close, or the special-offer close.
