Becoming Top In Sales
A lot of sales tips focus on the personality of the salesperson. How well do you present yourself?
5. Smile and Be Enthusiastic - Do you smile, look your customers in the eye, and are you enthusiastic about your product or service? If not, your customers may perceive you as grumpy and non-interested. If you lack skills in this area, take a sales training seminar and improve your sales presentation.
6. Stay Connected - In today's Internet world, more and more sales people are creating Facebook or LinkedIn pages. Set up your own page, update it frequently, and email it to your customers. Twitter is also a great way to stay connected with your customers. Find out other ways social networking can help your small business.
7. Slow It Down - Everyone has experienced the fast-talking salesperson. This can be annoying if your customers can't understand you and have no idea what you're talking about. Speak clearly and give your customers a chance to ask questions.
8. Dress Appropriately - Even in these days of the casual office or workplace, you should still dress appropriately. Your sales efforts won't go far if your appearance is unkempt and your clothes are old and worn.
