According to a recent study, we all have an inner salesperson however some of us may feel unsure of how to utilise our selling skills. Sales and marketing firm Avant Garde Ideals offer their advice and guidance to help people discover their inner salesperson.
Whether a person realises or not, life is all about selling. People are selling every day without realising it. Selling an essay to a school teacher, selling friends the holiday they should go on, selling yourself during an interview. In life, selling is mostly disguised due to the other motivational factors at work, but this is different in business. In business, the art of successful selling lies in the ability to sell without looking like a salesperson. If a person is able to hone these skills, it could dramatically increase the chances of a successful business career.
Avant Garde Ideals outline the firm's three top tips for young professionals on how to embrace their inner sales person. The believe that these tips may also be beneficial for entrepreneurs wanting to increase their confidence when selling.
1. Simply tell people how to find what they need – don't sell
Selling is a stealthy operation that is carried out in front of the customer and buying should remain largely in the hands of the customer. A salesperson should earnestly let the customer know what is being offered and the benefits of it. If these match what the customer is looking for, then the sale should be pursued.
2. Welcome people who are just wanting to find out information
Buying is a choice. If a consumer doesn't want to buy, they can serve other purposes. For example, spreading a good word about the brand and the benefits on offer.
3. Develop positive relationships with consumers
Loosen up, lend an ear, earn trust and make the customer chuckle. People like to talk about themselves, so for a salesperson, they need to align their thoughts with the customers to sow the seeds of a prospective association.
