Too often sales are viewed as a numbers game, where the end goal is to convert as many “no’s” into “yes’s” as possible. We believe this approach can be counterproductive and can be attributed to why sales can sometimes feel uncomfortable or even icky.
Instead, we believe the key to successful sales is to focus on finding your “yes”.
What does this mean? It means finding your ideal clients who are a good fit for your product or service – those who have a genuine need or desire for what you offer, and who are likely to benefit from it. The clients where your USP (unique selling proposition) resonates. These are the clients where you focus your time & energy on understanding their wants and needs, building relationships, and offering insights they will most likely become long-term clients, who will refer others to you, and who will ultimately help your business grow. When you focus on finding your “yes” you shift your approach from a transactional mindset to a relational one.
You’re not just trying to close a sale – you’re building a relationship. This means taking the time to understand their needs and concerns and providing them with the information and support they need to make an informed decision. Of course, this doesn’t mean that you should give up on clients who initially say no. Sometimes, they may simply need more information, a little more time, or a different perspective to see the value in what you offer. And because we are focused on building relationships, and finding our yes, we’ll ask the right questions to understand what our client wants and needs.
However, if you find yourself constantly trying to convince clients who are clearly not a good fit, it’s time to reevaluate your approach.
Sales is not about forcing a square peg into a round hole – it’s about finding the right fit. By focusing on finding your “yes”, you can build a loyal customer base and build lifelong reciprocal relationships!
There’s always enough! Rebecca
