Are you working really hard to grow sales, but it just isn’t happening? Maybe your communication is actually preventing you from making those sales.
Here are five communication ideas that could jump start your sales.
5 Communication Tips to Grow Sales
1. Inform without boring.
Just because you think something is fascinating doesn’t mean that others do. Present your offerings in a way that is interesting to THEM, not to YOU. How do you find out if you’re boring or not? Ask someone who will tell you the truth.
2. Listen twice as much as you talk.
I know you’ve heard this before. But most of us still talk on and on. If you ask the right questions, you often listen yourself right into a sale.
3. Don’t pitch!
Instead, tell stories and provide examples.
4. Don’t pressure your prospects or provide artificial deadlines.
Trust me, your prospects will see right through this. And in the future, they won’t even take your call.
5. Ask for the sale.
I know it’s scary. And you might be rejected. But there is no point in setting up the meeting if you’re not going to ask for the sale.
