Communicating For Sales
Are you making the most of your offers? What can you do to sell at your full potential? How can you maximize sales? What is a sales system?
A structure for repetitive is all you need to have recurring revenue. It sounds simple, but how practical is it to have one system? If you do have one system how do you maintain it? Sales processes differ from business to business because they are meant to attract different leads to purchase different offerings. Smaller businesses or newer businesses don’t always have a fully functioning system in place to handle onboarding and retargeting. This is what keeps a small business small.
If you already have some customers, then you should have a profile of them. You should know about your communicative process. Are you selling high ticket items on the phone or are you using ads to funnels leads? How are you actually acquiring sales at the moment? Many systems are processes that have a few unnecessary steps that slow down the conversion rate. A quick audit of what’s going on will tell you what directly correlates to closing a sale and securing the deal. These steps don’t just waste your time, but they waste your customers’ time. It’s an extra step that keeps them in linger before they convert.
Having a roadmap outlined is helpful for you and your teammates because it helps everyone stay on course. However, this isn’t a rigid map that has one path. If you want to sound like an automated machine, then go that route, but a roadmap should be a guide and not gospel. Every salesperson has their strengths, use them during your process. Those strengths range from copywriting to live calls and everything in between. Look at your sales personnel and examine their strengths. What are you more comfortable with?
Now that you’ve audited your sales personnel, you should audit the needs of your customer base. Many businesses fall into the trap of only selling the way they want to rather than what will attract their customers. Step into their shoes and honestly reflect on what you are currently doing. Examine their buying patterns, expectations, and needs. Also, ask yourself what questions they are likely to have when expressing interest. Getting those things out of the way will make the process smoother.
Don’t only look at past successes. If you can identify the problems that caused lost sales, then you can address them. Were there missteps in how a situation can be handled? Was there miscommunication between the involved parties? Were you targeting the prong people? When you can answer these questions, you can align yourself to acquire better leads and solve problems during the sales process.
Communication is another large part of the sales process. Ensure that you are accessible to your clients and that they are accessible to you. Without open and clear communication, there is room for error and a canceled sale. Follow-ups are essential to maintaining a relationship. This will eventually lead to a smoother onboarding process.
