How to handle the different customers?

  • Talkative behavior: – The garrulous or talkative people go on saying without paying any attention to the words that the salesman is saying. They always pick up faults in other’s clothes.  But, it’s not very difficult to handle them. You should try to shift their focus to the product only. Allure them with the different offers that your company is giving by explaining other details of the product. Have patience and try to clear all the queries they have.
  • Calm behavior: – These persons are the hard nut to crack. It is really very difficult to look into their mind. Tell them everything related with the product. Start a candid conversation with them asking them what they are looking for in the product. Solve all their queries as politely as you can. This will help you to get a sale.
  • Nervous behavior: – Those who are nervous lack in confidence. Try to start a polite and calm conversation with them. As they are generally shy in nature, they may hesitate to ask you every detail of the equipment. Provide them with all the general information like its application, price and how to maintain it after using it.
  • Suspicious behavior:– These kinds of people always disbelieve the salesman and his product. Do whatever you can to win their beliefs. They may scrutinize your product in an irritating way. But, don’t get angry. Keep smiling and clear all their queries and go on answering every question with patience even if they ask the same question again and again.
  • Impatient behavior:– They are always in a hurry even when buying a huge constructional equipment. These people can give you good sales, as they don’t spend much time with you in unfolding their big list of questions. So, you also don’t have to repeat the same words to them. But, mind it, these people can come back to you to ask further questions which they forgot to ask in the first meeting. That’s why, it’s better to explain them clearly all the usage of the equipment along with its product and customer service.
  • Shopper’s behavior:- These kinds of customers want to get information about the equipment’s price and application. They ask the questions with the genuine intention of buying them. You should warmly welcome them giving the necessary information about the equipment.


No, it’s not at all easy to deal with all the above said customers types. But, practice and experience will definitely sharpen your skill in this matter.
