Continually learning how to improve your sales team close rates is essential to keeping your sales team running as efficiently as possible and making more money! But what are the best techniques you can teach your team in this modern era of sales and marketing?
3 Simple Ways to Improve Your Sales Team’s Close Rate
1. Glass-half-full Close
From the moment you approach a potential client, you can focus on the “glass-half-full” idea. We’ve all met people who see the world in a more positive light, and let’s face it, they’re more fun to be around.
Using this technique means you train yourself to see more possibility with each and every potential client. A glass-half-full technique can have a powerful and positive effects.
Having a positive attitude doesn’t mean you don’t also listen, engage, and acknowledge. You still need to ask your potential clients, “Did my presentation answer all your questions and concerns?” and move towards the close with, “Do you think what I’ve outlined will be a valuable addition to your company?”
When you start any conversation with solutions in mind instead of barriers, you’re opening up the creative flow between you and your potential client..
2. Re-Cap Close
You can “re-cap” all the features and benefits of your products or services the potential client has shown interest in. Remind them with a list of all the reasons they want to buy.
Re-cap closing shows you’ve listened to the client’s wants and needs, which creates trust.
3. Right-Away Close
The right-away close takes customers by surprise. When potential clients ask for add-ons or discounts, they are expecting a “No, we can’t do that” or at least some negotiating. But if you know you can give them what they’ve asked for, you can move them directly to the close.
For example, “I can give you the add-ons at a reduced price, but you have to sign the contract today.”
Potential customers don’t expect this quick of a response. You are giving them what they asked for, so they are more likely to sign and get what they wanted.
