The document provides an overview of the steps in a sales call process: 1) Prospecting involves finding and qualifying potential customers. 2) Preparation includes setting objectives and planning for the upcoming call. 3) The approach aims to gain attention and interest through greetings and identifying the purpose. 4) Presentation identifies customer needs and shares relevant product features and benefits.

Enthusiasm:
 51 % of all closing effectiveness comes

from your enthusiasm, your excitement
about your product or service.
 when you successfully transfer your

enthusiasm about your product or
service into the mind of the customer,
he/she will buy and a sale takes place.
Believe In What You Sell


The most effective sales people know
their product, they believe in their
product, and love their product.



Without this deep belief in the goodness
of what you’re selling, you can never
reach that level of enthusiasm that must
be transferred into the mind of the
prospect to make them want to buy.
The secret to closing the sale
Expect the Best


You must confidently expect that the person is
going to say “yes” if you just ask often enough.
When you ask the prospect to buy, you must
confidently expect them to buy.



Confidence in selling comes from knowledge, it
comes from practice, it comes from experience,
it comes from believing that the product can do
what you say that the product will do.

Qualifying the Prospect


In the process of selling, there are several other steps
that you must take before you close:



The first step, of course, is qualifying
You cannot sell a product until you have
thoroughly qualified the prospect.



This basically means you first have to find out exactly
what the client wants, BEFORE you try to sell them
anything.
Four Questions for Qualifying
To qualify effectively, you have to find
the answers to four questions:
1. Does the prospect need what you're selling?
2. Can the prospect use what you're selling?
3. Can the person afford the product?
4. Does the person want the product?
Why the Close Is Difficult


The moment of closing is always difficult.
There is always a moment of tension. There
is always a feeling of stress.



Whenever a customer reaches a point where
he has to make an important
decision, whenever he has to spend
money, tension wells up inside of him. He
experiences the fear of failure.
Every one of us, as human beings, experiences this
fear of failure. The tension in the closing moments of
the sale is caused by:

the fear of making a mistake,
 the fear of buying the wrong thing,
 the fear of paying too much,
 the fear of being criticized by other people.


What happens when a person feels this fear?
It is very much like having a spear in the stomach.
What do they do as a result?
They back away.

Sales Closing

The document discusses the characteristics of top salespeople, the psychology of closing sales, buying signals, and closing techniques. It outlines that top salespeople are solution-oriented, persistent, and treat customers as a top priority. The psychology of closing requires understanding customer needs and proposing the right solution while connecting with the customer. Buying signals include rapid talking and changes in behavior. Closing techniques discussed are the ascending close using a series of yes questions, the Ben Franklin close comparing pros and cons, and using relevant stories.

Whenever the customer experiences this
fear, he retreats.
He says things like:






“let me think it over”
“could you call me back next week? “
“I have to talk it over with someone else”
“I have to check it out first”
“I can't afford it”

These are all different ways that the
customer tells you that, “I don't think if I make
this decision it'll be the right thing for me.”
The Fear of Rejection
The second major stumbling block at the close is
the fear of rejection. It is the fear of the prospect
saying “NO.’’
Each of us, deep down inside, has a fear of being
told “no”, a fear of being rejected.

Because of this fear, we very cleverly organize our
lives in such a way that we don't put ourselves in
front of people that say “no.”
four out of five sales calls
end with “no's,”!!!

if you have a problem with the word “no,” you’ve
picked a very interesting profession to get into,
because four out of five sales calls end with
“no's,” even in the very best of times. In the finest
economy, with the finest product, 80% of the
people you talk to are going to say no.
key factors in successful selling

 One of the key factors in successful

selling is to be prepared to hear a no
and continue. When the prospect says,
“No I don't think so,” you must be able
to just let it roll off your back like water
off a duck's back.

Rejection Is Not Personal
You must realize that a no is not personal. It is not
aimed at you as an individual. When a person says no
to you, they're not saying no to you in most
cases, they're saying no to your offering, for a series
of reasons, most of which you can do nothing about.

Your job is to:

face your fear,
confront your fear,
do the thing you fear,

and ask for the order.
Expect Sales Resistance


Sales resistance is normal and natural in every
sales conversation.



At the moment of making a buying decision, this
fear, this uneasiness, this tension starts to build
up.



Your job is to get through that moment of
tension as quickly and as painlessly as possible.



That’s what good closing techniques are for.
making it easy for the prospect to buy.
Just remember that closing techniques are not ways
of manipulating other people. They are not
techniques to get people to buy things they don't
want, don't need, can't use, and can't afford. They

are techniques to help get people past
that moment of tension.
The professional salesperson takes the
prospect smoothly past the point of
closing, making it easy for the prospect to
buy.
Technique #1: Hot Button Close


The hot button close is based on the fact that 80
% of the buying decision is determined by 20 % of
the product.



It is up to you to find the hot button, the key
benefit of your offering that is what the prospect
wants more than anything else.



You then to push this hot button over and
over again. Every time you mention the hot
button, the prospect's desire to own your
product or service goes up.

The Five Rules Of Closing A Sale

The document outlines five rules for closing a sale: 1. You cannot sell anything to someone, but you can help them talk themselves into buying by helping them make a decision. 2. It is not about you, it is about the prospect and what they want to discuss. 3. Assume the sale by believing you offer the best solution and that you are talking to buyers, not just shoppers. 4. Close on minor points - if you agree on details, the major purchase will follow. 5. Take "no" to mean "not yet" - if you assume the sale, "no" just means you missed something and need to ask more questions.

zig ziglarsalesmarketing
Good sales people are those who
question skillfully and listen carefully
to the answers.
If you ask enough questions and give
prospects enough opportunity to talk,
they will tell you everything that you
need to know to sell them.
As a professional, you listen for that hot
button, and you build your selling efforts
around that. Until you know the hot button,
it is almost impossible for you to make the
sale.
Technique #2: The Power Of Suggestion Close


The way you use the power of suggestion
close is by creating emotions in the prospect
with words or pictures.



you talk to the prospect as if he already owns
the product or service you are selling.



You talk to them throughout as if they had
already made the decision to buy. You
continually create mental pictures of what it's
going to be like to use, to enjoy, to benefit,
and to own the product
As you these emotional work pictures,
their thinking changes. Instead of
thinking, “Should I buy it or not?” they
are thinking of how they're going to
enjoy it once they own it.
You should always be positively and
confidently talking to your prospects in
language that suggests that they
already own your product or service.
This language exerts a powerful
influence on their thinking and
decision-making.
Technique #3: The Invitational Close


The invitational close is used when you simply invite
the prospect to make a buying decision.



One of the most Popular invitational close is,

“Why don't you give it a try?”


When you say, “why don't you give it a try?” you
are saying or suggesting that making the
purchase decision is no big deal. It is sort of
something that you can try. Like saying, It is an
easy decision to make.

The document provides techniques for effective closing in sales. It begins by emphasizing the importance of enthusiasm and belief in the product when closing. Prospects will sense whether the salesperson truly believes in what they are selling. It also stresses the importance of qualifying prospects and determining if they have a genuine need or desire for the product before attempting to close the sale. Closing is difficult due to the prospect's fears of failure, rejection, and making a mistake. However, sales resistance is normal and the goal is to smoothly guide prospects past that tension. The document then provides examples of closing techniques including gaining appointments over the phone by focusing on the prospect's needs and only requesting 10 minutes of their time to evaluate if it meets their goals.

“Why don't you give it a try?” is a very subtle
way of saying that you still have your options
open.

Remember:
You do not offend people by asking them To
make a buying decision once they have
indicated an interest in owning or enjoying,
the benefits of your product or service.
Don’t be afraid to ask, to invite them to buy.
Technique #4: The Relevant Story Close


This is a powerful closing technique because we
make all of our decisions with the right brain. And
the right brain is stimulated by stories and
pictures.



Whenever you can create a picture, as in the power
of suggestion close, or when you can use visual
sales aids, or whenever you can tell a story
about your product or service, you can
stimulate the prospect to buy.



People will remember a story about a product
or service for years, but they will forget all
the technical details in ten minutes.
You can use a relevant story close is when the
prospect is having difficulty making a decision.
You can use it in the middle of a presentation,
as well.
You can tell a relevant story about another
prospect who was hesitating about buying
this product or service, and they finally
decided to do it.
Explain how happy they are today that
they bought it.
Technique #4: WIFM
WHAT’S IN IT FOR ME???
The first rule of sales is, with each person you talk
to, figure out their WIFM.

Your customers buy the product of the product.
And what is the product of the product? It’s
benefits! People don’t buy something for
what it is; they buy it for what it does and
more specifically, what it will do for them.

1) A good salesperson is enthusiastic about the product they are selling and transfers this enthusiasm to customers. They must be knowledgeable about all aspects of the product. 2) It is important to understand customer motivations and position the product's characteristics to match the customer's hopes and desires. Salespeople should understand how marketing, advertising, and merchandising support the sale. 3) Salespeople must be honest with customers, provide complete product information, and gain customer trust through transparency.

Anyone can follow a sales process, so why can’t everyone sell? Scott Summers a Sales Presentation Specialist from IBM believes they can. So far I've surveyed almost 200 business owners, startups and entrepreneurs. Only a small handful have said that selling is a skill that they feel confident about. So, to help the thousands of business owners who aren’t natural sellers, I’ve identified the five core skills of a confident sales person. Use them together and watch your sales increase.

Remember, Everyone Listens To
Radio Station…WIFM-FM
potential client for any client or service you are selling
listen to one station and one station only and that :
WIFN – WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME?
thinks of your product / service as like radio station - and
your radio station are out there with thousand of other
radio stations which is your competitors competing for
your prospects dollar $$$, imagine your prospects go thru
all this channels and they come to your station, your
selling material, playing the same old tune.
One way to make sure you’re giving your prospect meaty benefits
is to make sure your presentation passes the “so what” test.
Whenever you give a fact or feature to your prospect, make sure
you answer the burning question, “So what?” and then include the
benefit.
You will have less trouble doing that if you get into the habit of
building a verbal bridge between the fact/feature and the benefit.
A verbal bridge is a phrase such as:
 which means
 therefore
 which allows you to
 so that you can
 as a result
 giving you
 so what you’ll see is
 and what you’ll immediately experience.
Simply put, a bridge is any logical phrase that allows you to link a
fact/feature with a product-related benefit.
Conclusion:
closing techniques are vital sales tools.
They have to be mastered through study
and practice.
The more tools you have in your sales
toolbox, the more likely you are to make a
sale.

The key to sales success is to act
boldly and to close boldly.

The secret to closing the sale

  • 2. Introduction  Today we are going to talk about the psychology of selling, the Art of closing sale and I'm going to show you the finest and most effective sales closing techniques.  If you practice these techniques and use them regularly, you will dramatically increase your ratio of sales to calls, and rapidly increase your income.
  • 3. Doubling Your Income  In the average sale, over 80 % of sales are closed after the fifth attempt at closing.  that mean after the fifth time that you have given your customers the opportunity to buy over 80% of the closing take place.
  • 4. Practice Makes Perfect  The more closing techniques you know, the more likely it is that you will close the sale.  Selling  Good born. is a skill. sales people are made, not
  • 5. Enthusiasm:  51 % of all closing effectiveness comes from your enthusiasm, your excitement about your product or service.  when you successfully transfer your enthusiasm about your product or service into the mind of the customer, he/she will buy and a sale takes place.
  • 6. Believe In What You Sell  The most effective sales people know their product, they believe in their product, and love their product.  Without this deep belief in the goodness of what you’re selling, you can never reach that level of enthusiasm that must be transferred into the mind of the prospect to make them want to buy.
  • 8. Expect the Best  You must confidently expect that the person is going to say “yes” if you just ask often enough. When you ask the prospect to buy, you must confidently expect them to buy.  Confidence in selling comes from knowledge, it comes from practice, it comes from experience, it comes from believing that the product can do what you say that the product will do.
  • 9. Qualifying the Prospect  In the process of selling, there are several other steps that you must take before you close:  The first step, of course, is qualifying You cannot sell a product until you have thoroughly qualified the prospect.  This basically means you first have to find out exactly what the client wants, BEFORE you try to sell them anything.
  • 10. Four Questions for Qualifying To qualify effectively, you have to find the answers to four questions: 1. Does the prospect need what you're selling? 2. Can the prospect use what you're selling? 3. Can the person afford the product? 4. Does the person want the product?
  • 11. Why the Close Is Difficult  The moment of closing is always difficult. There is always a moment of tension. There is always a feeling of stress.  Whenever a customer reaches a point where he has to make an important decision, whenever he has to spend money, tension wells up inside of him. He experiences the fear of failure.
  • 12. Every one of us, as human beings, experiences this fear of failure. The tension in the closing moments of the sale is caused by: the fear of making a mistake,  the fear of buying the wrong thing,  the fear of paying too much,  the fear of being criticized by other people.  What happens when a person feels this fear? It is very much like having a spear in the stomach. What do they do as a result? They back away.
  • 13. Whenever the customer experiences this fear, he retreats. He says things like:      “let me think it over” “could you call me back next week? “ “I have to talk it over with someone else” “I have to check it out first” “I can't afford it” These are all different ways that the customer tells you that, “I don't think if I make this decision it'll be the right thing for me.”
  • 14. The Fear of Rejection The second major stumbling block at the close is the fear of rejection. It is the fear of the prospect saying “NO.’’ Each of us, deep down inside, has a fear of being told “no”, a fear of being rejected. Because of this fear, we very cleverly organize our lives in such a way that we don't put ourselves in front of people that say “no.”
  • 15. four out of five sales calls end with “no's,”!!! if you have a problem with the word “no,” you’ve picked a very interesting profession to get into, because four out of five sales calls end with “no's,” even in the very best of times. In the finest economy, with the finest product, 80% of the people you talk to are going to say no.
  • 16. key factors in successful selling  One of the key factors in successful selling is to be prepared to hear a no and continue. When the prospect says, “No I don't think so,” you must be able to just let it roll off your back like water off a duck's back.
  • 17. Rejection Is Not Personal You must realize that a no is not personal. It is not aimed at you as an individual. When a person says no to you, they're not saying no to you in most cases, they're saying no to your offering, for a series of reasons, most of which you can do nothing about. Your job is to: face your fear, confront your fear, do the thing you fear, and ask for the order.
  • 18. Expect Sales Resistance  Sales resistance is normal and natural in every sales conversation.  At the moment of making a buying decision, this fear, this uneasiness, this tension starts to build up.  Your job is to get through that moment of tension as quickly and as painlessly as possible.  That’s what good closing techniques are for.
  • 19. making it easy for the prospect to buy. Just remember that closing techniques are not ways of manipulating other people. They are not techniques to get people to buy things they don't want, don't need, can't use, and can't afford. They are techniques to help get people past that moment of tension. The professional salesperson takes the prospect smoothly past the point of closing, making it easy for the prospect to buy.
  • 20. Technique #1: Hot Button Close  The hot button close is based on the fact that 80 % of the buying decision is determined by 20 % of the product.  It is up to you to find the hot button, the key benefit of your offering that is what the prospect wants more than anything else.  You then to push this hot button over and over again. Every time you mention the hot button, the prospect's desire to own your product or service goes up.
  • 21. Good sales people are those who question skillfully and listen carefully to the answers. If you ask enough questions and give prospects enough opportunity to talk, they will tell you everything that you need to know to sell them. As a professional, you listen for that hot button, and you build your selling efforts around that. Until you know the hot button, it is almost impossible for you to make the sale.
  • 22. Technique #2: The Power Of Suggestion Close  The way you use the power of suggestion close is by creating emotions in the prospect with words or pictures.  you talk to the prospect as if he already owns the product or service you are selling.  You talk to them throughout as if they had already made the decision to buy. You continually create mental pictures of what it's going to be like to use, to enjoy, to benefit, and to own the product
  • 23. As you these emotional work pictures, their thinking changes. Instead of thinking, “Should I buy it or not?” they are thinking of how they're going to enjoy it once they own it. You should always be positively and confidently talking to your prospects in language that suggests that they already own your product or service. This language exerts a powerful influence on their thinking and decision-making.
  • 24. Technique #3: The Invitational Close  The invitational close is used when you simply invite the prospect to make a buying decision.  One of the most Popular invitational close is, “Why don't you give it a try?”  When you say, “why don't you give it a try?” you are saying or suggesting that making the purchase decision is no big deal. It is sort of something that you can try. Like saying, It is an easy decision to make.
  • 25. “Why don't you give it a try?” is a very subtle way of saying that you still have your options open. Remember: You do not offend people by asking them To make a buying decision once they have indicated an interest in owning or enjoying, the benefits of your product or service. Don’t be afraid to ask, to invite them to buy.
  • 26. Technique #4: The Relevant Story Close  This is a powerful closing technique because we make all of our decisions with the right brain. And the right brain is stimulated by stories and pictures.  Whenever you can create a picture, as in the power of suggestion close, or when you can use visual sales aids, or whenever you can tell a story about your product or service, you can stimulate the prospect to buy.  People will remember a story about a product or service for years, but they will forget all the technical details in ten minutes.
  • 27. You can use a relevant story close is when the prospect is having difficulty making a decision. You can use it in the middle of a presentation, as well. You can tell a relevant story about another prospect who was hesitating about buying this product or service, and they finally decided to do it. Explain how happy they are today that they bought it.
  • 28. Technique #4: WIFM WHAT’S IN IT FOR ME??? The first rule of sales is, with each person you talk to, figure out their WIFM. Your customers buy the product of the product. And what is the product of the product? It’s benefits! People don’t buy something for what it is; they buy it for what it does and more specifically, what it will do for them.
  • 29. Remember, Everyone Listens To Radio Station…WIFM-FM potential client for any client or service you are selling listen to one station and one station only and that : WIFN – WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME? thinks of your product / service as like radio station - and your radio station are out there with thousand of other radio stations which is your competitors competing for your prospects dollar $$$, imagine your prospects go thru all this channels and they come to your station, your selling material, playing the same old tune.
  • 30. One way to make sure you’re giving your prospect meaty benefits is to make sure your presentation passes the “so what” test. Whenever you give a fact or feature to your prospect, make sure you answer the burning question, “So what?” and then include the benefit. You will have less trouble doing that if you get into the habit of building a verbal bridge between the fact/feature and the benefit. A verbal bridge is a phrase such as:  which means  therefore  which allows you to  so that you can  as a result  giving you  so what you’ll see is  and what you’ll immediately experience. Simply put, a bridge is any logical phrase that allows you to link a fact/feature with a product-related benefit.
  • 31. Conclusion: closing techniques are vital sales tools. They have to be mastered through study and practice. The more tools you have in your sales toolbox, the more likely you are to make a sale. The key to sales success is to act boldly and to close boldly.
  • 32. 10 tips: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. ask for the order boldly. Ask it like you confidently expect the other person to buy. Act as though it were impossible to fail. Ask the closing question like it is inconceivable to you that the person could say anything but yes!!! Practice your voice. Practice your tone. Make sure that you look like a million dollars. Make sure that your voice is strong , bold and clear when you ask. Speak strongly. Ask as though you expect the person to say yes.
  • 33. To be a great sales closer  you must be enthusiastic  You must love your product.  You must believe in your product  You must have confident expectations  you must persist.
  • 34. If you will persist, if you will keep on keeping on, no matter how many times people tell you “No “ you must and will eventually succeed. no matter how many times you get turned down, if you will keep persisting and persisting and persisting, you will succeed, and you will become one of the great sales people of your generation.
