Best ways to cold call as a salesman

Selling a particular product to someone unknown is quite a difficult task because as long as the person does not know you, he will not have the confidence and the will to purchase the product from you. He may want to give all the available excuses to avoid you. However, this does not mean that it is simple to sell something to a person you know or have a good relation. Selling is definitely an art and it takes lot of pain and practice to master the art. Not every individual can sell things. People who want to make a career in sales should first understand if they have the potential to be patient and can persuade people in buying his product.

It is said that if you are able to fix an appointment, you have already completed 50% of your job. The rest 50% depends on how the salesman who meets the prospect handles the situation. In the entire process of sales, the first 50% is the most crucial one. We get so many calls from people who want to sell something or the other and this really makes life frustrating. People have work on do and when they are in middle of their work, getting a cold call from a salesman can really irk you. So what can a cold caller do to work it out differently?

Check if it is the right time to talk to him:-

While you start a call, it is important that you greet the person first and after having introduced yourself to him/her, check if it is the right time to talk to him about the stuff you want to sell. If you just start going without even trying to know if the person would like to talk to you or no, he/she might straight away hung up the call and you lose a prospect. Just in case if the person says he/she is busy for the moment, try to know when you can call him/her next and ensure that you call the person at the time mentioned. It is also possible that the person may be busy the next time you call him/her but it is prudent that you take the next available time to call.

Speak well about your product and try to know his requirements:-

Before you start making calls, try to know your product well. If you get a prospect who is interested in your product and if he asks questions, you should be able to answer them. That will show how confident and knowledgeable you are with your product. Other than this, it is important that you check if the prospect has any requirement of your product. If you are trying to sell something that is commonly used item, then you can even create a need.

Do not be pushy with the prospect:-

Ideally, we don’t like people who push us to do something we are not interested in. If you are able to generate interest for your product, you can make a sale but if you be pushy with the prospect you may lose the sale.

Dreaming of Becoming the Best Salesman – It’s Time to Make It Come True

We all must have dreamt of becoming someone great in our lives. Some has aspired to become engineers, some astronauts, some must have thought of joining the army (if they were adventurous by nature) and some wanted to become salesman. But the work of a salesman is no joke and the one who is into it knows what kind of serious business he is dealing with. Today we see a lot of colleges have courses on business marketing which is more or less selling your company’s brand to other big companies. There they hone your skills and shape you up to become an able marketing manager. In other words, he is turned into a very sharp salesman who has learnt the tricks of the trade and is supposed to use them to get business for his company.

Selling is an art and you can master it only if you practice it day in and out. For many, selling is a toughest job they have ever done in their life and there have been numerous instances where people left the job out of frustration. Selling is all about numbers. You need to hit high volume to earn accolades from your boss and eventually earn good incentives. However, you can’t expect that to happen in the first few months of your job. Because in the first few months, you do nothing but learn the game well.

You go out on the field with your manager or your senior sales rep and hear them talk with their clients. This is for you to learn how to speak professionally with people and how to crack the deal. You may not adopt the very style of your senior sales rep. Rather, you should make one of your own. Now that comes with a lot of practice teamed with too much of rejections and failures. Nevertheless, it teaches you to deal with rejections in life. Presumably, no one can deal with rejections better than a salesman.

Few tips one should consider to become a successful salesman.

Join the best university:- You need to keep your foundation strong and therefore you should get enrolled with the university which is renowned for its teaching in business marketing. It will definitely not be a waste of money and you’ll come out learning something which you probably never knew and would also help you a long way in your future. Other than that, you also need to work hard to learn your lessons. At times, you may find things quite boring and may also annoy you, but you got to carry it on till you reach the goal.

Innovation is the key:-  The level of intelligence differ from people to people. However, if you always think about ways to sell your things, you come out with some real great innovative ideas. You can show your creativity in your presentations. Try to make it as simple as you can but add things which make it look simple rather than just keep on writing stuffs in it. You can use some cartoon characters on your presentation and then link it up with your product. You need to be extremely smart while you are dealing with things like these.

Be confident:- You need to be confident with your approach. When you’re representing your company, people want you to be confident while you speak about your brand/product. Any fumble or mishandling things may go against you. Hence, you need to be very careful while you’re presenting youself.
