Making Customers Introduction

  1. 1.  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!
  2. 2. 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
  3. 3. 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

  7. 7.  Always do what’s best for the new home shopper.  To care about the new home shopper.  To help and serve the new home shopper…serving not pleasing.  Overcomes the new home shopper’s preconceived perception of salespeople…new open engagement.  Creates the relationship we’ve all talk about, wanted and tried to create but sabotaged with traditional sales intentions.
  8. 8.  Changes salespeople’s job to finding the next person who wants what they are selling.  Creates real dialogue and conversations that exchange information.  Improves listening skills and salespeople’s intuition and instincts.  Changes the dialogue from selling or pleasing to helping and serving.  Focuses on the end result…homeownership.  Engages consumers so they will participate in the process.  Enables salespeople to know what new home shoppers really want.  Salespeople will set homebuyer expectations and manage their perceptions more effectively.
