Decision, Fulfillment & Post-Sell (Braintree)
How many times have you given a presentation to a prospect who didnt have the power, the authority, or the capability of giving you a "yes"? Many salespeople will externalize this frustration and become angry at the prospect. But, whose problem is it, really? Decision- You must qualify your prospect for decision making. Let the prospect know that saying either yes or no is the only acceptable answer and that he or she cannot say, I want to think it over. Qualifying the prospects decision making ability is paramount to getting your desired outcome. If your prospect says that he or she can make the decision alone, check it out! The prospect has probably been telling salespeople this for ages but when decision time comes, it might not be true. You will get a lot more noes than you ever got in the past, but the good news is that you will also be hearing a lot more yeses too. Fulfillment- The entire success of a presentation relies on having established a good, binding, and mutually acceptable contract. The presentation is merely the fulfillment of the contract. There is absolutely no room in the contract for any type of mystification and the words fulfillment and presentation are interchangeable. Post-Sell- A simple matter of making sure the sale is locked up by deliberately giving your prospect a chance to back out while you are still in front of him/her. If there is a crack in the sale, you can patch it up on the spot. Register today to receive your one-time FREE guest pass!

Uncovering the Prospect's Budget (Braintree)
The Budget Step is the most important step; yet it is the step salespeople have the most difficulty handling. It is very difficult talking about money, dealing with money, and asking other people about money. However, in order to be successful in sales, money has to be talked about. The Sandler Selling System deals with the budget up-front instead of at the end of the selling process. The budget step allows you to uncover how much money is allocated for your product or service, how your prospect plans to make the investment, where the money is coming from, and how it gets paid. When you, as a salesperson, are relaxed when dealing with money, your prospect will be at ease and will feel no pressure. Register today and receive your one-time FREE guest pass!
