Are You Part of This 90% Statistic?

chris-liverani-dBI_My696Rk-unsplash (1)According to the findings of a 15-year study conducted by an Atlanta based sales training organization:

More than 90 percent of all sales people volunteer a price decrease without being asked!

In addition, according to the same study, most salespeople do not believe their product or service has enough value – or is actually worth the price they charge.

Wow. This can be damaging to a business.

When salespeople truly understand the value of their products and services, they are better able to communicate a unique and authentic introductory statement.

Your perception and communication of the value you offer affects the customer’s interest in what you have to say.

“My intro on my cold calls has been helped by Ann Barr’s e-Course. I tend to keep more people on the phone and interested in what I have to offer. As soon as I started using the information from Ann’s class,  I signed up two new accounts!” - Hugo Garcia, Houston, Texas

“Already in the first week of the Ann Barr e-Course I’ve learned a lot about how to approach my work. I am able to walk away from the first week with a much clearer idea of how to approach prospects and what they want to hear from me versus what I want to say.”

Forget Cold Calls – Do This Instead

tim-mossholder-sxb8StmTfaw-unsplashFirst:

3 serious questions to ask yourself:

1.  Have all of your inactive customers been contacted during the past three months?

2.  Are all of your current and past customers aware of ALL of the products and services you have to offer?

 3.  Do ALL of your customers buy everything they could possibly buy from you?

If you answered “no” to any of these questions – think about it:

Do you really want to start making cold calls before all of your inactive customers have been contacted?

If your focus is on bringing in new customers by cold calling BEFORE contacting inactive customers, you are actually leaving money on the table.

Before making more cold calls, think about this:

  • Your current customers KNOW you
  • They LIKE you, and
  • They TRUST you!

So … you will get less rejection and more sales when you contact your current clients.

Thanks for reading – here’s wishing you an awesome day!
