Today’s customers all want the personal touch when it comes to products and services. There are plenty of different ways to achieve this, but maybe raising your game and going that little bit further could influence customers or clients to choose your business over your competitors to clinch that final sale.
Your sales process – the soft touch over the hard sell?
When putting your sales process in place, concentrate heavily on what benefit that product or service can bring to your desired customer or client over perhaps the hard sales angle. Do plenty of research into what your chosen market is likely to find visually attractive, not only for the product but also for all the advertising, wording, and which platforms it will most effective.
If you have a product or service which you want to sell to the female population, showing it in an overly masculine way won’t make the original target audience ask for it in the first place as it won’t appeal to them, or they’ll feel that it’s not targeted for them.
Is your CRM your most valuable piece of software?
Having a database of potential client or customer details and actual clients or customer details is an invaluable tool. You can contact them direct knowing name and address and what they are likely to purchase due to previous purchases is an extremely useful CRM software tool to have.
CRM stands for Customer Relationship Management. Software that keeps all customer and potential customer information in one place, which will help identify sales opportunities and help manage marketing campaigns, would be amazingly beneficial when trying to get the edge on a competitor.
Do your research; it’s time well spent
Doing some in-depth research into your target market so that they feel everything is designed solely for them. As most people seem to enjoy a story nowadays, maybe look at the story you can tell about your product or service but make sure you base it on a concept that your customers or clients would identify with.
If you’re selling to an eco-friendly crowd, then maybe focus your sales from a carbon footprint angle if, of course, it does have a good carbon footprint, or maybe from a sustainable source point of view, or anti-cruelty. Perhaps even mentioning equal rights or fair trade could be advantageous.
Anything which could form a positive emotional link between your company, your product, and your prospective customer could be the difference between you grabbing that fantastic sale or your customer going elsewhere.
Keep your website simple
Simple websites aren’t often boring websites, but they are straightforward to navigate. A website with too many graphics or a too larger graphic file will cause the loading time to slow right down, and therefore customers or clients will get bored, and chances are will click away. Simple websites have easy-to-follow instructions. If your viewer can’t find the button they are looking for easily and quickly, they will click away, losing you your potential sale – regardless of how fantastic your website may look.
