    The fundamentals of handling objections – Part 1

    Discovering how to handle objections and resistance is part of the sales process. Just as you need to be able to find potential clients, gain appointments, give simple advice, ask the right questions, explain concepts, close the deal, render ongoing service and retain clients – so you will need to be able to handle objections to survive and thrive.

    The fundamentals of handling objections – Part 2

    If you can master techniques on how to overcome, circumvent, dismiss or ignore objections you will be eminently better off than if you shy away from skills enhancement. Discover how to improve your odds of conversion to appointments and eventually to sales. In every interview, there is always a sale made. Either the prospect bought your offer or you bought their excuse or objection not to see you or buy from you.

David and Jim share how to put your offer into your prospect’s decision-making agenda above the other things that are competing for their time, interest or money.

    What is your Completion Plan?

In other words, what will they do to complete the sale process? David and Jim share practical tips and tactics to help you set up your own completion plan to increase your chances of success.

    I already have a supplier of your services

    Being compared against a competitor that is already embedded in a prospect’s company or on the preferred supplier list can be a roadblock. Being assessed as a competitor, invites people to use the ambiguous objection that their problem is solved, simply because they already have a supplier of your service, products or ideas. Discover with Jim and David show how to check how strong that current supplier relationship is. In other words, how can you gain an opportunity to show your experience and expertise and a foothold in the prospect’s consciousness initially.
