How to Immediately Become a Better Closer
Michael Halper
Founder and CEO
SalesScripter
Salespeople are not born. They are built.
The best salesperson asks the best
questions.
Some Key Points
• Most common area for desired improvement
• Should be one of the easiest steps of the process
• Born a closer?
• Tremendous control
• Direct closing tactics versus indirect closing tactics
Step 1: Focus on the right goal

Close (Sale or agreement to move
forward)
Closing should be the easiest step in the
sales process.
Indirect Closing Tactics
• Communicating the value you offer (benefits)
• Building a business case, ROI calculation, identifying payback period
• Finding prospect pain that you can resolve
• Qualifying the prospect
• Building rapport
• Building interest
• Building credibility
Some direct closing tactics:
Trial ClosingTrial Close
• What do you think of what we have discussed
so far?
• How would that feature help your operation?
• Is this something you could see your
employees using?
• Are we heading in the right direction?
• Does the agenda match up with your
expectations today?
• Is this what you were expecting to see?

Letting the Prospect Lead
Let the Prospect Lead
(Soft Close)
• What would you like to do
next?
• What direction would you
like to go in?
• Do you want to continue
talking about this?
• When would you like to talk
again?
Turn Questions into Statements
Turn Questions into
Statements
• Question: Would you like to meet
next week?
• Statement: We should meet next
week.
Turn Questions into Statements
Hard Closing Questions
• Are you ready to move forward to the next step in the process?
• What would you need to be able to make a commitment to move
forward?
• If you had everything that you want, are you prepared to move
forward?
• If we were able to give you what you are asking for, would you be able
to move forward with the purchase?
• When are you going to make your final decision?
• (If delaying the decision for a period of time – X months) OK, but do
you mind if I ask if there will be a change or something different at that
time that will make that a better time to look at moving forward?
• Is there anything that is preventing you from being able to move
forward with this purchase?

Compelling Event
• Natural compelling event:
– Existing contract expiring
– Site opening or moving
– Existing system being discontinued
• Manufactured compelling event:
– Expiring discount
– Expiring promotion
– Limited product availability
Disqualifying
Disqualify (Takeaway)
• Maybe this is not the right direction for you to
go.
• It sounds like you all are doing pretty good
and might not need this.
• It does not seem like this is something you
are really interested in.

• Redirect
• Goal is to get to the meeting
• Try to pre-qualify
• Redirect or Overcome
• Goal is to get to a presentation
• Try to further qualify
• Overcome
• Goal is to close (Sale or agreement to
move forward)
Redirect to Pre-Qualifying Questions
During Initial Contact
Response:
I understand. (Redirect to one of the qualifying questions) But if I could ask you real quick:
Are you currently using any automation tools to manage your inventory levels?
- Or -
I understand.
(Optional defuse) And I want you to know that we are not trying to sell anything at this point.
(Optional defuse) I don’t even know if you are a good fit with what we do.
(Redirect to one of the qualifying questions) But if I could ask you real quick:
Are you currently using any automation tools to manage your inventory levels?
Redirect to Pain Points
During Initial Contact
Response:
I understand. (Redirect to one of the qualifying questions) When I talk with other manufacturing
companies, the often express challenges with it taking too long to process orders and there are
sometimes errors.
Have you ever been concerned by those?:
Redirect to Close
During Initial Contact (Late in Call)
Response:
I understand. And I want you to know that we are not trying to sell anything at this point as we
don’t even know if you are a good fit or not.
Our goal is to simply open the dialogue between our two companies so that if you reach a point
where there is budget available, you will know who we are and what we have to offer.
Can I put a brief 15 to 20 minute call on your calendar next Tuesday or Thursday afternoon?
Redirect to Close
During or After Appointment – Before Presentation
Response:
I would like to ask you to do me a favor and hold off on that concern right now. We are not trying
to close any sale with you right now so the topic of budget being available is not completely
relevant.
All we are trying to do right now is clearly identify if we are a good fit for you. That is why we
would like to spend 20 to 30 minutes with you and show you some information on how we can
help based on what you have shared so far.
We will continue forward aware that you have a budget concern and after that next meeting we
can identify the level of fit and direction and pace to go. Does that sound reasonable?
Overcome
Close Attempt – After Presentation
Tactics:
• Get to the root of the concern
• Budget displacement
• Focus on ROI
• Identify sources of funding
• Look for alternative sources of funding
• Plant seed for the future

  • 21. Redirect to Pre-Qualifying Questions During Initial Contact Response: I understand. (Redirect to one of the qualifying questions) But if I could ask you real quick: Are you currently using any automation tools to manage your inventory levels? - Or - I understand. (Optional defuse) And I want you to know that we are not trying to sell anything at this point. (Optional defuse) I don’t even know if you are a good fit with what we do. (Redirect to one of the qualifying questions) But if I could ask you real quick: Are you currently using any automation tools to manage your inventory levels?
  • 22. Redirect to Pain Points During Initial Contact Response: I understand. (Redirect to one of the qualifying questions) When I talk with other manufacturing companies, the often express challenges with it taking too long to process orders and there are sometimes errors. Have you ever been concerned by those?:
  • 23. Redirect to Close During Initial Contact (Late in Call) Response: I understand. And I want you to know that we are not trying to sell anything at this point as we don’t even know if you are a good fit or not. Our goal is to simply open the dialogue between our two companies so that if you reach a point where there is budget available, you will know who we are and what we have to offer. Can I put a brief 15 to 20 minute call on your calendar next Tuesday or Thursday afternoon?
  • 24. Redirect to Close During or After Appointment – Before Presentation Response: I would like to ask you to do me a favor and hold off on that concern right now. We are not trying to close any sale with you right now so the topic of budget being available is not completely relevant. All we are trying to do right now is clearly identify if we are a good fit for you. That is why we would like to spend 20 to 30 minutes with you and show you some information on how we can help based on what you have shared so far. We will continue forward aware that you have a budget concern and after that next meeting we can identify the level of fit and direction and pace to go. Does that sound reasonable?

Editor's Notes

  1. Pros: Trial closing improves qualifying and deal management by collecting valuable information. This tactic can also improve rapport, as it can sub-communicate positive vibes like confidence, experience, abundance, and putting the prospect’s interests first. Cons: One challenge with this tactic is that it gives the prospect an opportunity to share negative thoughts and gives him more control. If you have not been successful in building interest and rapport and you then invite the prospect to share thoughts, you might not get the answers that you want to hear.
  2. Pros: This can help to push a prospect along before he can object or change his mind. This may also motivate a prospect who might be in a neutral or on-the-fence position to act. Cons: This level of aggressiveness might sub-communicate negative vibes to the prospect, and this could negatively impact rapport and credibility. This approach could push away a prospect who was in a neutral position.

Cons: This level of aggressiveness might sub-communicate negative vibes to the prospect, and this could negatively impact rapport and credibility. This approach could push away a prospect who was in a neutral position.
  4. Pros: Letting the prospect lead can help to build rapport, as it is a very unthreatening way to interact with prospects. This can also increase the quality of leads as you will know that all of the prospects you are meeting with want to be there and were not pressured to do anything. Cons: One challenge with this tactic is that it gives the prospect more control. If you have not been successful in building interest and rapport and then you give control to the prospect to chose what direction to go in, he might not chose to go in the right direction.
  5. Pros: This tactic displays confidence and can motivate action. Cons: One downside to this tactic is that you are telling the prospect what to do instead of letting the prospect tell us what to do. This can motivate action but we may create action with prospects who are not fully on board and this could decrease the quality of leads.

  7. Let’s go back to the I am not interested objection and talk about it in more detail. I am not interested is actually not a legitimate objection for the cold call as you are not trying to sell anything. Our goal is to open the dialogue, so to say I do not want to talk to you would be more fitting, but to say they are not interested in buying your product actually does not make sense. A great place to redirect this objection is to any qualifying questions that you typically ask prospect. Questions about the prospect’s current technical and business environment are often good questions to ask whether facing an objection or not, but when a prospect says they are not interested, you can reply with a response like I understand. Are you currently using any automation tools to manage your inventory levels? - Or - I understand. And I want you to know that we are not trying to sell anything at this point. Are you currently using any automation tools to manage your inventory levels? Of course, this does not work every time, but remember that we our goal is to keep the call going and using this approach over a large number of calls will typically yield good results in getting around the objection.

  9. The objection of not having any budget or money available to spend right now is similar to not looking to make a change. And the response is same as the not making a change now as you can present yourself as just trying to open the dialogue. You could use the exact same response that we just went through or you could tweak your language to say that, Our goal is to simply open the dialogue between our two companies so that if you reach a point where there is budget available, you will know who we are and what we have to offer.
