Look, Sound, And Act Like A Professional
Is there such a thing as a professional salesperson? The answer is a definite YES. The way you act, dress, the questions you ask, and the way you listen all go toward making you a successful professional salesperson.
Think about all the people that work with you. How successful are they? Rate them on a scale of 1 to 10? Why are they working with you in this company? How do they act towards the customers? How do they dress? Are they good listeners? Do they ask the right questions and get the answers they need to make the sale? Now think about you. Why are you here? Is there ways you can improve the way you dress, act, the questions you ask the customers? Could you possibly be a better listener? What can you do to improve all of these areas? Anything you can do to make yourself more of a professional salesperson will go along way towards the happiness of your company and your customers. It’s time for a professional sales development plan.
Item number one in your professional sales development program is that you need to improve your professionalism when you are speaking to a prospect over the phone. You may have had the worst day ever but you have to be able to put all of that aside when it comes to talking to people about your opportunity.
Being a professional salesperson is what will determine if you will have a successful business or not. So the question for you to ask yourself is what are you going to do to attain and maintain your status as a professional salesperson.
If you are having people over for an in-home it is important to be professional. Dont be rude. Let everyone ask their questions and answer them all. Always dress for success. How would you expect someone to look if you were going to their home for a business demonstration? When you answer that question, use that and dress that way. I have always heard you should treat others the way you want to be treated. In the business world you should be as professional as you expect others to be.
Saying you are a professional is one thing. Showing that you are a professional is another. Always be willing to go out of the way for your customers. The more they like you the more they will shop from you. The more they shop from you the more people they will tell about you and the more successful your home based business will be.
