  1. 1. Nine golden rules of successful selling Understanding your client and yourself <ul><li>Leigh Ashton </li></ul>Copyright 2010 | Ripple Effect Systems Ltd 1 M205
  2. 2. 1. In your clients shoes <ul><li>The welfare of your client is the most important thing in sales. </li></ul><ul><li>No two people’s paths will be the same. </li></ul><ul><li>Respect and acknowledge this – then let it work for you. </li></ul>Copyright 2010 | Ripple Effect Systems Ltd
  3. 3. 2. Ask open questions <ul><li>To sell effectively, you need information . </li></ul><ul><li>So use open questions: When, Where, How, What, and Who. Avoid ‘Why’, as it may be interpreted as confrontational. </li></ul><ul><li>Avoid closed questions, as they often close the conversation. </li></ul>Copyright 2010 | Ripple Effect Systems Ltd
  4. 4. 3. Start listening! <ul><li>Don't jump to conclusions; don’t miss information; don’t leave your client feeling misunderstood. </li></ul><ul><li>Ask a question and then SHUT UP and listen. </li></ul><ul><li>Learn to cut out that irrelevant internal dialogue so that you can listen. </li></ul>Copyright 2010 | Ripple Effect Systems Ltd
  5. 5. 4. Be flexible <ul><li>There’s always another way. </li></ul><ul><li>If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always got. </li></ul><ul><li>Learn from each obstacle. Don't blame ‘this’ or ‘that’: take control . </li></ul>Copyright 2010 | Ripple Effect Systems Ltd
  6. 6. 5. Have an objective <ul><li>Focus, focus, focus.

This detail brings your goal into reality. </li></ul>Copyright 2010 | Ripple Effect Systems Ltd
  7. 7. 6. The right state of mind <ul><li>Remember a great positive, productive state. </li></ul><ul><li>Use an anchor (maybe a clap of the hands) to reproduce that positive state. </li></ul><ul><li>Sales will come when you are in a really great state! Sales isn’t a process; it starts in your head and with how you feel. </li></ul>Copyright 2010 | Ripple Effect Systems Ltd
  8. 8. 7. The client’s pains & gains <ul><li>Focus on ‘what’s in it for them’. </li></ul><ul><li>If they talk about things they don’t want then they are motivated away from pain . Talk about how you can resolve their problem. </li></ul><ul><li>If they talk about what they want to achieve then they are gain motivated . Talk of what they could get if they bought from you. </li></ul>Copyright 2010 | Ripple Effect Systems Ltd
  9. 9. 8. Take full responsibility for your communication <ul><li>It’s not this, that or them; it’s you! </li></ul><ul><li>Be clear, be prepared to change the message, and check they understand.
