We all love to buy, but generally we don’t like to be sold. I like to compare it to driving, unless I am in the driver’s seat it’s just not the same. Let’s just face it we have all been sold to at one time or another. It’s just the experience of the sales process that some of us have trouble with.
You have to admit that you are almost pre-programmed to say that “Thanks I am just looking” when a sales person comes up to you at a retail store and says “May I help you with anything”?. Think of it for a minute, would your response be different if their approach was different?
When I first started as a broker almost 7 years ago now, my first branch manager (who was more of a bull in a china shop kind of salesman) at them time told me to call people up, tell them what I did and expect business to be thrown at my feet! Not only did that not work, I was not comfortable doing it. I turned to Google and did a search for cold calling techniques. I stumbled upon a site now called unlockthegame. Had a great chat with Ari Galper and hired him to teach me his process. The rest they say is history, more or less a night and day difference from what other sales trainers teach.
I have implemented his approach in all my dealings with clients and also use it in almost all my communication but mostly unconsiously. Don’t get me wrong, there are still some people using old fashion sales approaches and are doing quite well. If you want to improve your financial postion and want to be “sold” there are a number of people who I could refer you to, however if you want to uncover the root causes and find a solution that meets your need, then feel free to give me a call. I look forward to hearing from you.
