  • Running like a machineAll of this needs to be done within a system to manage the process and ensure no opportunities are lost. The Sales Process should run like a machine. The first step is to generate leads – potential prospects who may buy from you. You can do this in a number of ways and you SHOULD do this in a number of ways. Set a goal for the number of new leads you will generate each week. Some ways to generate leads include:NetworkingGiving talksWebsite/Social MediaReferrals Generate interest and build trust. Next you need strategies in place to build trust with your prospects and generate interest. This can range from a conversation at a networking event or providing great advice and tips (such as a free report or a series of tips on social media) that show the prospect that there may be some interest in what you sell. The key thing to make this aspect successful is to join the conversation your prospect is having – so if you are meeting face to face ask lots of questions. If creating a free report pick a topic that is currently really bugging your prospect. Appointment Setting. Next step is to set-up an appointment to have a sales conversation. The key thing here is not to sell your products and services yet, you are only selling the appointment. The best way to do this is to offer some kind of free ‘taster’ session – for consultants and coaches this is normally a free half hour phone consultation, if you sell websites it could be a website audit, a carpet cleaning company could provide a free consultation and quote. Don’t forget – you are not selling your services, you are selling ht appointment. Send them bio & testimonials.Once the appointment is set you need to continue to build their trust and begin to sell yourself. Create a 2 page biography about yourself, including information about your background, testimonials and benefits of working with you. Sales Conversation. The sales conversation is an opportunity to find out what your prospect needs. It’s an opportunity to ask questions and get them to open up. You need to get your prospect agreeing with you that they need your services. And you don’t need to do a hard sell, but you do need to do some selling! Don’t just give away a free coach/consultation session – this will not gtet you or your prospect anywhere. If No: Send follow up email thanking them for time. If the conversation went well ask them to refer you to anyone who may be interested. Add to list. If Yes: Send proposal, ask for referral.
