Last week we discussed the ‘3 Rules of Sales’.
In that article we talked about rule #2 – People buy off you for emotional reasons not sensible reasons.
This week we will finish off with rule #3 – Once you sell them your product or service you need to satisfy their emotional decision with reasoning.
Once your client is emotionally sold, they need to justify it in their minds.
Think about Apple computers for example.
Can you recall their TV commercials? Beautifully crafted shots of the latest MacBook Air, literally floating through the air.
There is a beauty about the way it looks, it is compelling and draws you in to the design of it.
It looks amazing and so light – like air!
That composition you see gets you to the store, or online.
Then what do you do? You check out the bits and pieces it has. Does it have this speed…I must have this feature…or that.
This information might help the sales, but it is deeper than that. It justifies the sale.
Those are the basic rules of selling.
Here is the summary.
Before you sell anything, you must understand these three rules.
1. Your client does not like the idea of being sold to.
2. People buy off you for emotional reasons not sensible reasons.
3. Once you sell them your product or service you need to satisfy their emotional decision with reasoning.
If you learn these three basic rules, you can create any sales approach with confidence.
Have a great week.
