Sales Presentations: Focus on Dominant Buying Motives

The Brooks Group

The average sales presentation consists of 6-8 features or benefits. Is that good or bad? Well, when you consider that 24 hours after your presentation, 39% of your prospects remember only one of them, the answer should be very clear.

39 Tips for Keeping the Sale on Track

The Brooks Group

Whether you're just getting started or you've been selling for years, it's important to remember sales don't just happen. They're the result of pursuing the right activities at the right time. Keep your selling career on track with this handy checklist of essential sales activities. Pre-Call Planning. Are you talking to qualified prospects? Timing: Are you in front of your prospects when they are ready to buy, not when you need to make a sale?

Stop Talking Your Way Out of the Sale

The Brooks Group

What does your prospect want to hear about - every imaginable bell and whistle that your product offers or how they can use the product to achieve their goals or solve their specific problems?

Start with the critical questions that every prospect wants answered when you show up for a sales call: Who are you? What do you want? Why are you here? Who do you represent?

The Power of Enthusiasm and Belief

The Brooks Group

Enthusiasm is critical for success in any endeavor. Whether it is to pick up the phone and make one more call after being rejected, recovering from a difficult illness, resurrecting a relationship, handling a disgruntled customer or anything else, enthusiasm is essential.
