Increase your Close Ratio with these Sales Techniques

Closing a sale is a result of building good relationship with your prospect and nurturing them. Any experienced sales reps can prove that fact. In the sales process, our goal is to know if there’s an opportunity and get the commitment of the prospect.

When qualifying a lead, forget about having a manipulative closing technique. Telemarketing works best if your goal is to seek for a long-term relationships with your prospects and ongoing growth opportunity instead of just closing a sale.

Here are some techniques on how to increase your close ratio to improve your sales.

Every sale requires interaction and commitment from the customer. Understand what the prospect’s situation is like in the sales cycle, whether they would like to commit now or will keep your information available whenever the need arise.

What you do and how you close a sale plays a greater impact in closing a deal. Earning the right to ask for a commitment starts at the very first meeting. Sales reps must learn to sound more natural over the phone. Demonstrate a positive attitude, focus on your customer’s success by discovering their needs and wants then offering a solution.

“May I ask what backup and disaster recovery solution are you using?”

“How long have you been using it? How is it working for you so far?”

“Do you have any issues or challenges?”

“Do you have a provider? When will your contract ends?”

Connect personally.

Discuss relevant information with your prospect. Focus on what they need for now and not on what you want them to know about your product or service.

Learn how to connect the dots.

Know what questions to ask by looking for keywords out of their statement and focus on that.
