Sales approach for optimizing the customer journey
#1 Don’t sell, book an appointment
A virtual meeting or in person chat will enable you to connect with your customers to maximize your chance of closing opportunities
#2 Confirm the appointment
This is where you are trying to have your customers engage with videos, online reviews, and more. Refer to the buildakickasscompany.com website or bizxcel.com for many engaging resources. Encourage the customer to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn.
#3 Prepare 3 options
Good - Better - Best has been a marketing strategy for decades. Apply this strategy to maximize the perception of value in your proposal. This is where you can talk about the various services that we offer.
#4 Present a quote and proposal
Review your proposal one option at a time, explain key program/technical features and present and explain pricing
#5 Email a thank you note
Emailing a “Thank You” note is a professional way to get back in touch with customers. It gives you the opportunity to confirm when you will follow-up by phone. Do this within 48 hours of when the quote was created.
#6 Follow-up by phone and execute your plan
A phone follow-up will allow you to confirm if you’ve solidified the deal or not
