Highest Branch ask open questions engage in conversation with (not at) use information given to engage further ask more open questions rinse and repeat Awesome qualification

Highest Branch separates YOU from the competition allows you to fully understand needs builds rapport puts customer at ease everybody loves talking about themselves! why bother?

Highest Branch it takes too long customers get all defensive they only care about the price anyway I don t know how to talk to people not for me?

Highest Branch “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did but people will never forget how you made them feel” ! Maya Angelou

Highest Branch price complacency fear trust external influencers timing the objections

Highest Branch break down overall cost into smaller service funding options available help client justify cost personally positive outcomes focus on your unique value focus on quality Price Your services just cost too much

Highest Branch Complacency I think I m ok the way I am just now paint picture of what could happen explain potential problems of delay often strongly linked to price objection focus on your unique value reinforce positive outcomes

Highest Branch Fear I ve decided I don t want to - too much can go wrong strongly related to complacency demonstrate past examples from clients focus on the positive outcomes to be achieved take your time and empathise !

Highest Branch Trust It seems you know what you are doing but how can I be sure? very few people will ever tell you this but they might still be thinking it anyway consistent openness and honesty is the key testimonials, case studies, references !

Highest Branch External Influencers It s fine but I need to talk to my partner frequently used as an excuse longer and better qualification should avoid this if genuine then restart process again we really want to try and avoid this !

Highest Branch Timing It s too much to think about just now - call me back in 6 months if there are issues, chances are they will still be there in 6 months make it easy to become your client stress your flexibility re-sell your unique value and qualities !

Highest Branch objection overcome? Great! move STRAIGHT to the close DANGER - SALES APPROACHING

This term applies to such transactions as the sale of a house, as well as negotiations leading up to a sale. ! The latter was also used as to close a bargain, a phrase used by Charles Dickens and other 19th-century writers: ! "He closed the bargain directly it reached his ears," Nicholas Nickleby, 1838. !

Highest Branch just ask - (often the hardest thing to do) closing techniques Closing the sale

Highest Branch the indirect close aka the question close use indirect or soft questions how does that feel to you? what does that sound like? gains positive affirmation from customer

Highest Branch the sharp angle close response to a question if I can, will you? Offer compromise. can often close a very unsure client

Highest Branch the balance sheet close aka - The benjamin Franklin Write out a pro s and con s list Assist the client (with the pro s)

Highest Branch The easiest close is just to ask for the business. All it takes is a little confidence! and practice..

Highest Branch So what happens next? It costs on average 6 times more to find a new customer than it does to retain and maximise the potential from our existing client base, and yet we expend our energy constantly looking for new clients. We need to focus on changing this paradox in the 21st Century . Harvard Business Review, July 2009

Highest Branch starts on delivery measure satisfaction focussed follow ups constant contact customer retention
