Even in a good market there are ways you can lose a sale. Ryan Taft sees it all the time. A common “sale-buster” is selling from a position of weakness.

Even if you have the greatest product in the world, customers will turn and run if you portray weakness. #success #sales

The Problem: sales demonstrations based on facts and features. The Conflict: customer’s make purchase decisions based on emotions. In fact, take emotion away and a customer literally cannot make a decision.

Salespeople share many similar attributes, but a common thread among the sales elite is an infectiously positive outlook. #success #sales

Recently, Amy O’Connor was speaking at a seminar and a participant wrote a negative review! You can’t please everyone, right? So why did it affect her so deeply? Why did it matter so much?

Amy set out to find answers that might benefit all of us the next time we experience negative feedback. Here’s what she found. #success #sales

Customers only want to know how your product will improve their lives. Their mission is not education (beyond perhaps a few simple questions). They are primarily concerned with solving some significant problem in their lives.

So why are so many sales people constantly feature dumping? #success #sales

What is it about customers that causes them to fixate on price? I mean, you have a great product and outstanding service – don’t they care about these things?

Many factors are actually at play in this situation. But for this discussion, we’ll look at three key issues, all of which come in the form of cognitive biases – or mental inclinations. #success #sales
