02 May Sales Sprints 2018: What’s the Problem with Objections? Part 1
This Month’s Webinar: What’s the Problem with Objections? — 5-17-18
Part One – Getting Beyond Stalls and Resistance
Overcome even the most difficult objections to win more sales. Learn how to handle stalls, overcome customer doubt, get customers who are dragging their feet to make a decision and quantify value over price objections.
Some sales professionals dread hearing objections from their customers when really you should welcome them. Objections are really very easy to overcome if you understand what you are dealing with. Stalls are different from true objections and are much more dangerous. “This sounds good”, “Let me talk to my partner”, “Let me think it over”, “Call me back in a month or so”. Sound familiar? These are typical stalls that have a 3% chance of being the true intent of the customer. Before you answer or accept the objections that you hear, you need to make sure that you’re working with the true meaning. That’s the hard part.
In This Session:
- Differentiate between stalls and three types of objections
- Clarify stalls to get to the true customer intent
- Accelerate your sales by understanding your customer’s true position
- Diffuse defensiveness and set the right tone
- Get the customer moving with you to tell you what is really on their mind
- Identify the subtleties of the unspoken word and how it can make or break you from moving forward.
