HOW TO ACHIEVE EXCELLENCE IN SALES


     Most people are always striving to better themselves. It's the "American Way." For proof, check the sales figures on the number of self-improvement books sold each year. This is not a pitch for you to jump in and start selling these kinds of books, but it is an indication of people's awareness that in order to better themselves, they have to continue improving their personal selling abilities.

     To excel in any selling situation, you must have confidence, and confidence comes, first and foremost, from knowledge. You have to know and understand yourself and your goals. You have to recognize and accept your weaknesses as well as your special talents. This requires a kind of personal honesty that not everyone is capable of exercising.

     In addition to knowing yourself, you must continue learning about people. Just as with yourself, you must be caring, forgiving and laudatory with others. In any sales effort, you must accept other people as they are, not as you would like for them to be. One of the most common faults of sales people is impatience when the prospective cus tom§er is slow to understand or make a decision. The successful salesperson handles these situations the same as he would if he were asking a girl for a date, or even applying for a new job.

     Learning your product, making a clear presentation to qualified prospects, and closing more sales will take a lot less time once you know your own capabilities and failings, and understand and care about the prospects you are calling upon.

     Our society is predicated upon selling, and all of us are selling something all the time. We move up or stand still in direct relation to our sales efforts. Everyone is included, whether we're attempting to be a friend to a co-worker, a neighbor, or selling multi-million dollar real estate projects. Accepting these facts will enable you to understand that there is no such thing as a born salesman. Indeed, in selling, we all begin
at the same starting line, and we all have the same finish line as the goal - a successful sale.

     Most assuredly, anyone can sell anything to anybody. As a qualification to this statement, let us say that some things are easier to sell than others, and some people work harder at selling than others. But regardless of what you're selling, or even how you're attempting to sell it, the odds are in your favor. If you make your presentation to enough people, you'll find a buyer. The problem with most people seems to be in making contact - getting their sales presentation seen by, read by, or heard by enough people. But this really shouldn't be a problem, as we'll explain later. There is a problem of impatience, but this too can be harnessed to work in the salesperson's favor.

     We have established that we're all salespeople in one way or another. So whether we're attempting to move up from forklift driver to warehouse manager, waitress to hostess, salesman to sales manager or from mail order dealer to president of the largest sales organization in the world, it's vitally important that we continue learning.

     Getting up out of bed in the morning; doing what has to be done in order to sell more units of your product; keeping records, updating your materials; planning the direction of further sales efforts; and all the while increasing your own knowledge - all
this very definitely requires a great deal of personal motivation, discipline, and energy. But then the rewards can be beyond your wildest dreams, for make no mistake about it, the selling profession is the highest paid occupation in the world!

     Selling is challenging. It demands the utmost of your creativity and innovative thinking. The more success you want, and the more dedicated you are to achieving your goals, the more you'll sell. Hundreds of people the world over become millionaires each month through selling. Many of them were flat broke and unable to find a "regular" job when they began their selling careers. Yet they've done it, and you can do it too!

     Remember, it's the surest way to all the wealth you could ever want. You get paid according to your own efforts, skill, and knowledge of people. If you're ready to become rich, then think seriously about selling a product or service (prefer ably something exclusively yours) - something that you "pull out of your brain;" something that you write, manufacture or produce for the benefit of other people. But failing this, the want ads are full of opportunities for ambitious sales people. You can start there, study, learn from experience, and watch for the chance that will allow you to move ahead by leaps and bounds.

     Here are some guidelines that will definitely improve your gross sales, and quite naturally, your gross income. I like to call them the Strategic Salesmanship Commandments. Look them over; give some thought to each of them; and adapt hose that you can to your own selling efforts.

     1. If the product you're selling is something your prospect can hold in his hands,
      get it into his hands as quickly as possible. In other words, get the prospect
      "into the act." Let him feel it, weigh it, admire it.

     2. Don't stand or sit alongside your prospect. Instead, face him while you're
      pointing out the important advantages of your product. This will enable you to
      watch his facial expressions and determine whether and when you should go
      for the close. In handling sales literature, hold it by the top of the page, at the
      proper angle, so that your prospect can read it as you're highlighting the
      important points.

      Regarding your sales literature, don't release your hold on it, because you want
      to control the specific parts you want the prospect to read. In other words, you
      want the prospect to read or see only the parts of the sales material you're
      telling him about at a given time.

     3. With prospects who won't talk with you: When you can get no feedback to
      your sales presentation, you must dramatize your presentation to get him
      involved. Stop and ask questions such as, "Now, don't you agree that this
      product can help you or would be of benefit to you?" After you've asked a
      question such as this, stop talking and wait for the prospect to answer. It's a
      proven fact that following such a question, the one who talks first will lose, so
      don't say anything until after the prospect has given you some kind of answer.
      Wait him out!

     4. Prospects who are themselves sales people, and prospects who imagine they
      know a lot about selling sometimes present difficult selling obstacles, especially
      for the novice. But believe me, these prospects can be the easiest of all to sell.
      Simply give your sales presentation, and instead of trying for a close, toss out a
      challenge such as, "I don't know, Mr. Prospect - after watching your reactions
      to what I've been showing and telling you about my product, I'm very doubtful
      as to how this product can truthfully be of benefit to you."

      Then wait a few seconds, just looking at him and waiting for him to say
      something. Then, start packing up your sales materials as if you are about to
      leave. In almost every instance, your "tough nut" will quickly ask you, Why?
      These people are generally so filled with their own importance, that they just
      have to prove you wrong. When they start on this tangent, they will sell
      themselves. The more skeptical you are relative to their ability to make your
      product work to their benefit, the more they'll demand that you sell it to them.

      If you find that this prospect will not rise to your challenge, then go ahead with
      the packing of your sales materials and leave quickly. Some people are so
      convinced of their own importance that it is a poor use of your valuable time to
      attempt to con vince them.

     5. Remember that in selling, time is money! Therefore, you must allocate only so
      much time to each prospect. The prospect who asks you to call back next
      week, or wants to ramble on about similar products, prices or previous
      experiences, is costing you money. Learn to quickly get your prospect
      interested in, and wanting your product, and then systematically present your
      sales pitch through to the close, when he signs on the dotted line, and reaches
      for his checkbook.

      After the introductory call on your prospect, you should be selling products and
      collecting money. Any call backs should be only for reorders, or to sell him
      related products from your line. In other words, you can waste an introductory
      call on a prospect to qualify him, but you're going to be wasting money if you
      continue calling on him to sell him the first unit of your product. When faced
      with a reply such as, "Your product looks pretty good, but I'll have to give it
      some thought," you should quickly jump in and ask him what it is that he
      doesn't understand, or what specifically about your product does he feel he
      needs to give more thought. Let him explain, and that's when you go back into
      your sales presentation and make everything crystal clear for him. If he still
      balks, then you can either tell him that you think he's procrastinating, or that
      overall, you don't think the product will really benefit him, or it's purchase be to
      his advantage.


      You must spend as much time as possible calling on new prospects. Therefore,
      your first call should be a selling call with follow-up calls by mail or telephone
      (once every month or so in person) to sign him for reorders and other items
      from your product line.


     6. Review your sales presentation, your sales materials, and your prospecting
      efforts. Make sure you have a "door-opener" that arouses interest and "forces"
      a purchase the first time around. This can be a $2 interest stimulator so that
      you can show him your full line, or a special marked-down price on an item that
      everybody wants; but the important thing is to get the prospect on your "buying
      customer" list, and then follow up via mail or telephone with related, but more
      profitable products you have to offer.


     If you accept our statement that there are no born salesmen, you can readily absorb these "commandments." Study them, as well as all the material in this report. When you realize your first successes, you will truly know that "salesman are made - not born."
