Being a successful marketer requires a lot of dedication. Are selling skills innate or can we develop them? We think practice is an expert development. Now that you’re ready, we’ll share the ten keys with you to improve your skills and change the way you think.
‘’I don’t know what to shop for”
To be a successful marketer, you must know how to adapt to a customer’s needs. In other words, we must try to ensure that our customers’ doubts, problems, concerns and pain points go hand in hand with the characteristics and benefits of what we sell. First of all, we should know in detail what we will sell. In the face of any questions from the customer, we must know how to respond or know who can answer them. We always recommend knowing the benefits, problems that the customer can solve with our product or service, operating specifications, how the warranty works and other common questions that the customer asks.
Love what you shop for
The golden rule of being a successful marketer is knowing that with our sale we help our clients. Ensuring that our product or service really serves our customers makes us appreciate what we sell. If you want to be a successful seller, we need to convey certainty about the benefits and results that our product or service generates. Knowing that we can meet customer expectations gives us confidence that we are selling what they really want or need. If you believe in what you sell, your customer believes in what you buy. Your security is important. If we believe in what we are selling, our client understands it in form, tone of voice, language, hardness of answers and many other indications.
Understand and help your customer
To be a successful seller, you must be a good listener. Listening to our customers is that we will understand and be able to interpret their needs, expectations, problems and desires. After listening carefully, we can know how we can help our customers. If we realize our client requires something we don’t offer, we can turn this into an opportunity for improvement. Improvement can be made to the existing product or service, or we can diversify and innovate and thereby expand our capabilities.
4. Be clear about the doors you knock on
If we know what our goal is, we must realize that our product is not for everyone.
Your value proposition should be developed based on the ideal customer avatar. We have to divide the market. This way we know where to direct our sales efforts. You must determine where you are these people or organizations for which your product or service is the best solution.
From there, we will focus our energy on attracting and retaining these types of customers. Do not touch the wrong customer doors. Better direct your efforts to improve the value proposition, while considering the ideal customer avatar.
5. get ready
The opportunity begins to appear long before the first customer meeting. Find the customer and visit their LinkedIn profile and website. Learn about his profession and any field he excels in. See what competitors are and what strategies they use.
This way, it’s easier for you to ask the right questions when meeting your potential client.
