What do consumers think of salespeople?
What do consumers think salespeople care about?
What is a salesperson’s intention every day on their way to work?
Are consumers wrong about salespeople?
“How are you doing?” When an Executive asks the Sales Manager or they ask a
Salesperson…What are they really asking?
What do new home salespeople think of homebuyers?
What do new home building executives think of their salespeople?
Stop the insanity…heal this dysfunctional relationship!
Has taught salespeople
• their job is to sell the next person they talk to
• selling is a dialogue but the trick is to control the conversation so it stays
focused on the product, presentation and information to be covered
• selling is a series of questions to get to the answer they want…manipulation
• they learn to close, by closing early and often
• after a closing question, the first person who talks loses
• to build rapport and a relationship ask good questions…to make a sale
• to tell the prospect what they want to hear…to be people pleasers
Creates mistrust between consumers and salespeople
Pleasing…Tell Them What They Want To Hear!
is our reaction to avoid conflict and be liked
is what we do to get something for ourselves
often backfires and sabotages the end result we really want
may resolve the issue of the moment, but creates larger
issues for the future
Reinforces the mistrust between consumers and salespeople
People feel what we feel
People know our intentions

FOCUS…Please home shoppers, getting FOCUS…Do what’s best for the home
an order, a contract, my commission, shopper, help them, serve them, their home
makes salespeople act and sound the ownership, orders as part of the process…

IT’S ABOUT US…SO SHOPPERS RESIST IT’S ABOUT THEM…SO SHOPPERS SHARE
My product their reasons for shopping
My knowledge their reasons for buying
My presentation their wants, needs, desires, concerns
My commission their budget
‘My deal’ their lifestyle
IT CREATES…SHORT TERM SELFISH IT CREATES…LONG TERM SELFISH
how many calls…traffic dialogue
how many presentations conversations
how many appointments relationships
how many contracts who did you talk too?
how many cancels customers
To assist you, not tell you
To help you, not sell you
To care more about you,
than what’s in it for me.
To always do what’s best for you
