Sales Is Not A War, Selling is Finding Common Ground
The absolute worst thing you can do in a sales call is to force your product on the customer. It is great that you have enthusiasm, it is equally great that you think you appear to be passionate. It is however bad that you come off as being overly aggressive, obnoxious, and quite frankly annoying. That’s what you risk when you treat a sales call as being a challenge to win. Where you feel you’re orchestrating a war with the customer to win them over to your point of view.
That is not sales, that is a personal war, lead by someone who feels they are right and everyone else is wrong. You cannot win in this situation. Sound thinking folks who read this post know that the basics of a sales call is consultative selling and needs analysis that matches your products or services to suit the customer’s needs. Sales is not a standard approach. No, there are many curves and bends in the sales process, those who learn this lesson will ultimately be successful. Those who do not will fail.
