In this episode:
The sales system has been tarnished by the idea of the snake oil salesman, creating distrust between buyers and sellers. With a targeted sales process, you can rebuild rapport with your prospects. So how can you identify customers’ needs and decision-making processes?
According to business development and sales specialist Ryan Reilly, the three types of buyers are the motivated and unmotivated — each comprising 20% of your prospect pool — and the moveable middle. These customers have a process involving initial motivation, commitment avoidance, and final decision-making. Rather than following the traditional sales process of a needs analysis and proposal, Ryan says to establish a bond following the needs analysis by discussing the buyer’s interests, problems, budget, and other concerns to present a solution that aligns with their process.
