  21. 21. Express Doubt • I do not know if you need what we provide. • I do not know if you are a good fit with what we do. • I do not know if we can help you in the same way that we have helped others. • I do not know if you are interested in those improvements. • I do not know if you are concerned about those areas. • I do not know if you are the right person to speak with. • I do not know if it makes sense for us to talk. • Maybe this is not the right time for you to look at this purchase. • Maybe we are not the right product for you. • Maybe this is more than you need right now.
  22. 22. When In Doubt, Call It Out Well, it sounds like you guys have done a good job of putting all of the right pieces in place. Maybe it does not make sense for us to spend too much time talking.
  23. 23. When In Doubt, Call It Out Well, I am a little concerned. You seem very interested in our system, and that is great. But your current system is working pretty well. I am worried that our teams may spend a lot of valuable time, and then you might have trouble getting funding for this because the current system is working pretty well.

  27. 27. Key Takeaways • Doing the other things right will make closing easy • Having a good sales message will make closing easier • Screening and qualifying will make closing easier • Improve your objection handling to improve your close rate • Focus on the sales process and closing on the right goal • Trial close every step of the way • Strategically use the sales takeaway when appropriate

Hinweis der Redaktion

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
