Ways of Selling Products Persuasively

selling productsSelling products differ from person to person, but in any case, you always want to avoid annoyance, and show persuasion.

I mean, have you met or maybe seen a sales person who seems to have everything in order? A salesperson who has no problem with talking to people. Everyone seems to like him, and he seems to have all his goals in check, making sure that he is selling products far beyond his quota.

This doesn’t necessarily mean that he has a natural gift when it comes to selling, nor does it mean that he’s just a lucky guy. This just means that the difference between him, and other salespersons when it comes to selling products is that he takes the time and effort to make sure that he is well equipped, skilled and knowledgeable of the products he is trying to sell. He devotes enough time to prepare, practice, and create methods that will make selling products easier for him.

Aside from sales training, this salesperson actually makes an effort of learning what method is persuasive and what is not – what tactic makes the best results in selling and what doesn’t.

The problem with inexperienced or unprepared salespersons are that they are being too pushy when selling products. It’s an automatic turn off for the customer because like any interested person, the last thing they want is a person who doesn’t want to stop talking. Pushy salespeople do not come off as professional. They come off as either desperate, rude, or unintelligent.

From a customer’s point of view, selling products shouldn’t be too pushy. It shouldn’t appear that the salesperson just came out of a one day sales training course. It shouldn’t feel too desperate, and it should feel too forced. Selling takes heart, and it is from it that people will listen, and you will appear persuasive.

Consumers can see right through you more often than you think. They can feel if you aren’t prepared, and they can also sense if you are nervousness. This shouldn’t be the case. In any method of selling products, every sales person should be able to exude confidence, positivity, and of course persuasion.

How is this possible? Here are some tips.

Selling products with persuasion, confidence and positivity

Positivity. Your mood affects your work, and how you tackle the task at hand. If you’ve been feeling bad the whole day, you’ll eventually find it difficult to assist people and persuade them to buy your products. Hence, one key ingredient to successfully sell products is positivity. Selling products shouldn’t look like you were forced into it. It should be natural, you should appear like you enjoy what you are doing. When you are happy, being convincing, and persuasive comes naturally.

Confidence. Selling products can’t happen if you are too shy. You can’t shy away from sales, especially if you are a salesperson. So how can you do this? Well, in selling your products you have to ease into the person you are talking to. You can’t persuade if you don’t know what your customer is looking for and what they need.

So learn to build up your confidence by selling your products in a subtle way. By subtle, I mean, ask them what they want, figure out what they need, and let them talk. Listen to them, and use it as your stepping stone to formulate your sentences and build up the confidence you need. Learn to process the information given to you so that you know that you will have the confidence to tell them exactly what they need. Selling products is harder to do if it is something they never really had interest in to begin with.

Persuasion. Now that you more or less have the idea of what they want, selling can now be done more easily and more effortlessly. If your product appears to be something that they are interested in, then it’s your chance to casually persuade them to buy your product. This can be done by explaining the benefits of your product. Selling products can be done by giving them a vision of them using your product and them enjoying the experience. If for example, you are selling for home maintenance, like floor wax. Give them an image of the difficulty they experience with the current products they use and build up to it. Then let them have an idea of what it would be like if they had your product. You could say a catch phrase, any selling tactic that will get them to have interest.

In selling products, you don’t necessarily or literally have to sell, you just have to explain what it can do for them, and let them decide if it is a product worth trying. This way, you’ll be more believable and persuasive because you no longer sell a product, you are simply engaging in a casual conversation. Make your sales enjoyable, and it will do the work for you.

Use the T Method to Enhance Sales Performance

t methodT method is somewhat a blueprint on how you can acquire more profit in a short span of time while at the same time preserving your company’s liability to those in-charge, the stakeholders.  Read up if you would like to learn if you are on the right track when it comes to sales training, measuring objectives, reaching ROI and the like, via this approach.

What the T method is all about

Why do you think it was called the T method? It was named as such because of the intersection of two processes. Thus forming the letter T. The evaluation process involves both a horizontal, pertaining to key performance indicators or KPI, and vertical process, to compute the return on training investment or ROTI. The alignment of the both processes will provide you the path of least resistance to your company’s total goal revenue but not just that, it can also direct you to the performance processes that will lead to the most profit, or enable you to recuperate from lost sales due to poor performance.

The T method’s Horizontal Examination

To show a typical case of the horizontal process of the T method, here are some of the KPIs of a sales company that caters to small to medium sized businesses:

  • Sales cycle (38 Days)
  • Average Revenue per Sale ($3500)
  • Revenue goal ($25,000)
  • Average New appointments generated per rep (5)
  • 1st Appointment to Proposal ratio (60%)
  • Closing ratio (40%)

This T method horizontal representation shows that the sales team can actually attain 67% of their total profit aim. Let’s explore further on which kind of KPI performance training that will lead to the desired goal at the shortest span of time.

  • The T method will urge you to explore and focus on your front end. Improve the usual number of appointments to 7 to reach the profit aim, but do not change all other components.
  • This method also urges you to reassess your current sales procedures and check if there is still a way to improve your present 40% closing ratio. For instance, improving this to 60% can help attain the monthly goal revenue without the need for altering your KPIs. You can also divide the difference by first appointing to 10% proposal ratio with a 10% closing ratio will lead to the same goal, while sticking with the same required new appointments.

The T method’s Vertical Sales Performance ‘Impact Silo’ Examination

The other aspect of the T method is looking at the vertical aspect. This  approach applies to you if you are looking into your company’s internal training of sales performance, or when you’re looking to outsource a partner company for the training. The common denominator here is those at the top of your organization will surely demand for accountability in compliance with set budget.

You can also look at it this way: the chief financial officer already knows that half of the sales training budget is a waste, but he can’t decipher which half is it.

Using the T method’s vertical sales performance examination will win you nods from the financial heads in your company.

Here’s an example of a sales company’s vertical performance measures:

  • 70: Percentage of sales representative at or above quota
  • 35: the annual average new-hire Ramp-to-Quota (at 5 months)
  • 30: sales employee turnover because of poor appointment activity

Step 1, you have to compute your sub-par average revenue. This is the average monthly revenue that a newly hired salesperson reaches before they reach their quota.

Consider this: you have a 5-month average ramp-to-quota, then get the average revenue total sold in the first 4 months of the new hires, divided by 4. The result is the monthly average sub-quota revenue during ramp.

Let’s say the average sub-par revenue is $8000, and one of your main training goals is to enhance the new hire ramp-to-quota. You focus on the outcome of the training and its effect as it associates with recovering revenue by choosing a ramp-to-quota goal that is more effective than the current one that is 5 months. For this instance, a month’s ramp-to-quota reduction would gain you back $595,000 worth of incremental profit. That’s equal to $17000 for every new hire. If you have set the cost per head of training is at $2500, then your ROI is a whopping 680%.

Now let’s move on to the costs linked to this and the potential recovery. Let us use these figures when it comes to hiring a new sales representative.

  • Recruiting Costs: $1,200
  • Average Salary: $28,000
  • Training Costs per Rep: $2500
  • Monthly Sales Quota: $25,000

How would you like to recover $1,953,500 by focusing your KPI training initiative to reduce turnover of sales representatives by 50% (that’s 15 people). This could actually lead to more than $130,000 of revenue for each sales representative that becomes more effective in setting new appointments.

For the 3rd kind of vertical sales performance impact measure, we have set that on an average, 70% sales reps reach their monthly quota. And the average monthly sub-quota profit gained for the 30% of sales reps not attaining their quota is equal to $16,000.

We have also established that 5 is the weekly average for new appointments, but in enhancing the 1st appointment to proposal ratio by 10% and the closing ratio by another 10%, we can consistently reach our quota.

Moving on, let us also compute for the ROI on training if we reach our goal of an improvement of 70% on the team’s quota of up to 90%.

  • Improve to 70%: 1st Appointment to Proposal ratio
  • Improve to 50%: Closing ratio
  • Sales cycle: 38 Days
  • Average Revenue per Sale: $3500
  • 5: Average New appointments generated
  • 100 sales representatives

By focusing on an improved performance to enhance the middle KPIs in support of added 20 sales representatives monthly to reach quota, incremental monthly revenue amounts to $180,000. That’s equal to $2,160,000 yearly or ROI for training of 864%, from a $2500 training cost investment per head. For a sales cycle of 38 days, the training investment breakeven is around 80 days.

 

Employing the T method to your sales performance training will help you to establish the quickest way on how to achieve your revenue goals, learn the best techniques to apply, and at the same time, how to rationalize the investment costs to the big bosses.

Value Added Items: A Product of Strategy

value addedValue added products is important in business. Not only do these products increase sales, they also make potential customers think twice before putting down your offer. This is especially true if the products are based from bonuses. Why? Because a bonus doesn’t seem like a cheat. It doesn’t look like a fraud, nor does it appear as a scam. It is simply a decision of choosing quantity and affordability against the others.

The real problem with value added items based on bonuses, however, is that every market uses them. Every business and every industry uses bonuses to create items. So what else can you offer to add value to your product? What else can you really do to gain value to your product?

Well first, here are examples of good bonuses that you can use to create value added items:

  • Books: If you have a how to book, a bonus would be if you happen to mention additional reports. For instance, if you have a how to book on how to cook vegan dishes, a bonus would be including what foods are considered vegan.
  • Software: Selling software designs are good but to increase its value, including reports on how to make search engine optimized websites are considered value added bonuses that you can include.

Genuine value added bonuses

There are plenty of bonuses out there but the most important one that you need to have is an honest and genuine bonus. Genuine added value bonuses can be used immediately, and is directly related to your product making it essential to use.

Hence, what makes it very important for businesses is the fact that the motivation to buy is high. Once they see it in a newsletter, or on a shelf, it immediately captures attention and makes it difficult for people to detract from it.

In some cases, you are even technically even putting a price on a free product.

Value added bonuses and the proper placement

Value added bonuses do not automatically make a complete sale. It has to be timed. You have to give them the opportunity before they completely make a sale, like for instance, near the cashier at a supermarket. It thus, eliminates any last minute hesitation. There’s even more pressure if you offer the product at a limited time.

Free bonuses

Value added products can be strategically contained in regular products with free items. Free items or bonuses reinforces customers into thinking that they can get the product at a much cheaper price. Here are some examples:

  1. Selling physical products

Value added physical products is easy to do. By simply adding free samples or free gifts, you are able to entice customers to make a purchase regardless if they need it or not. You can put in 20% more of your product, maybe add free pens, make-up bags, etc. and customers may not pass the opportunity.

  1. Special report

If you aren’t selling a physical product, then maybe information would be your best option. You can create value by explaining its benefits and how to use it more efficiently. You can promote your product online by making tutorials, how-to articles, and more.

  1. Make an instruction guide

If you are selling a product that is actually quite complicated, you can add value to your product by including instruction guides, and detailed information on how to use certain features or effects.

  1. Offer sessions

Offering sessions is also a great way to add value to your products. This works best for computer games, and software that may require hands-on lessons so that people may be able to use the products more efficiently.

How to Write Really Effective Headlines

effective headlinesEffective headlines are what you need not just to get your target’s attention but to help you get sales. Did you know that 90% of the outcome of the success of your business lies on these headlines? Whether it is for an advertisement, a promotion or a sales newsletter, writing effective headlines is key. Making them may be quite challenging for some, so read up on these tips and strategies to help you write your way to success.

What the advertising gurus say about effective headlines

From David Ogilvy: “On the average, five times as many people read the headlines as read the body copy. It follows that, unless your headline writing sells your product, you have wasted 90 percent of your money.”

John Caples said: “Advice to copywriters: When you are assigned to write an ad, write a lot of headlines first. Spend hours writing headlines or days if necessary. If you happen to think of a headline while walking down the street or while riding the bus, take out pencil and paper and write it down.”

Whether you are an amateur or a professional writer, there are definitely ways to improve how you write effective headlines.

What makes effective headlines effective?

These headlines must fulfill the following:

  • they must be attention grabbing
  • they must properly convey the benefits
  • they must give the answers to: so what, what’s in it for me or who cares
  • they must lure your target’s interests
  • they must appeal to the right set of audience

Tips in writing effective headlines

It is correct that you should also have great content, but with effective headlines alone, the body of your article or letter need not be that hardworking anymore. Keep the following in mind as you write your headlines:

  • Your product promise must be convincing
  • Use less than 17 words
  • Avoid using the reverse type because it makes the text illegible
  • Avoid using all caps because that will also make it hard to read. Use upper and lower case properly.
  • The headline text should have the same font size all throughout
  • If you are using a photo, put the headline below
  • To make text memorable, use quotation marks

Apart from effective headlines, also have effective content

Your effective headlines will be made stronger if you follow them with effective content as well. You should take note of the following:

  • Make sure you review all elements properly
  • Read it from the eyes of a marketer and not as a writer
  • Make use of strong action words such as slash, multiply, chop, etc.
  • Establish all the product features and benefits through the eyes of your potential customers.
  • It is important for you to emphasize the benefits, as these are what will catch the attention of your target market, of what your product can do for them.
  • Product benefits must be about believability and to do that, you must give as much details as possible. For instance, if you are selling a book, mention the number of pages, the number of illustrations, the size of the book.
  • Product features and benefits must be focused on in the ad’s copy, but the headline should contain it as well for more emphasis. This is because 90% of people base their actions on emotions. And product benefits highly appeal to people’s emotions.

Test those effective headlines

When you think you have written a really effective headline, it is time you test it out. This is due to the following reasons:

  • To check if you can make a new one that is better
  • Each headline lasts a lifetime so you might need to revise it

If the headline works with your customers, no need to change it. But if you do find something better, then change it.

Powerful words to use for effective headlines

By now you should have learned a lot of things about writing effective headlines and you can now get into its content. Headlines usually start with the phrase “How To” because it appeals naturally to people’s curiosity. But since there are too many “How To’s” already out there, I’ll give you some tips on some other words and phrases that you can use instead:

  • Announcing
  • Advice to
  • Yes
  • Secrets of
  • The truth of
  • Love
  • New
  • Protect
  • How much
  • Now
  • Life
  • How would
  • Amazing
  • Here
  • Facts you
  • Discover
  • Only
  • Breakthrough
  • Do you
  • Sale
  • At last
  • Bargains

And last but not the least, do not forget these two most powerful words in your headline: – Free

– You

Hopefully you now have all the right tools and information in writing effective headlines, now go on and start writing and get that sale!

Outsourcing

Infrastructure Management Services are Better Outsourced

infrastructure managementInfrastructure management is something that a growing business cannot simply brush aside. As a company progresses, more time and labor is demanded to address various issues. A business leader is confronted with matters such as capitalization. Others include human resources and management of assets. Then there’s handling equipment, data and processing of orders. The list seems endless. That is why infrastructure management is becoming more of a necessity than a mere additional investment for businesses.

The growing popularity stems from its ability to cut down costs and reduce downtime for businesses. But the list of benefits does not stop there.

Benefits of Infrastructure Management

Infrastructure management involves managing an organization’s processes, policies, machinery, data and outside linkages as well as its human resources. They are essential components of any business’s operations. That makes it a necessary tool towards effective business management. It assures that the business conforms not only to its standards. Also, that it is to the standards expected by external or third-party entities.

Moreover, infrastructure management improves the cascading of information across the organization. It also promotes a flexible and adaptable environment that can implement changes smoothly.

Why infrastructure management services are better outsourced

In-house management is not a simple task. It can be very complicated and can demand more of the company’s resources. In fact, some studies show that infrastructure management costs are among a company’s biggest expenses.

Hiring a regular employee to handle these services, however, can be more expensive. It is also time consuming for a company. This is where outsourcing comes to picture. Over the past, more and more companies recognize the importance of outsourcing and its benefits such as:

  • Increased reliability since the contractors are experts in the field of infrastructure management
  • Minimizes expenses for IT operations as well as IT staffing costs
  • Gives the business more time and focus for other areas of operations
  • Makes service delivery easier and faster. This is since the company can focus on primary services rather than devoting time for infrastructure management
  • Reduces system downtime and improves productivity
  • Easily identifies any problems and corrects them automatically thus reducing problem resolution time
  • Improves the company’s knowledge base.  An outsourcing company can share its technical know-how in the process.

Bottom line

This age is when competition demands that businesses continue improving their core competencies. Hence, infrastructure management is a must. To cut down on costs, outsourcing is a better option. Remember that a business should have more time and focus in the delivery of quality services. That’s why tasks such as this should better be left in the hands of experts. They can give your company the uptime and availability it needs to cater to clients’ needs.

Sales Boosting Strategies That You Should Apply Now

sales boosting strategiesSales boosting strategies are what you actually need in order to rise above competition. You need these now especially that competition is tougher than ever, more products are offering almost the same benefits, and your budgets are not getting any bigger. But if these are your current scenarios, how then could you boost your sales given these limitations? What are these strategies that you should use? I have researched on the most effective strategies that you can apply on your business right now.

Top 12 Sales Boosting Strategies

Sales Boosting Strategies#1: Make sure your product has a distinguishable personality.

Do you remember the Rubber band Guy from OfficeMax? That is because the people from OfficeMax were successful in creating such a distinct character that it was able to increase brand awareness and in turn led to more sales. The Rubber band guy advertisements represented the brand well while at the same time imparting the message that OfficeMax has the supplies that they need.

Sales Boosting Strategies#2: Why not make use of the product’s rich story of origin.

Behind every great product usually comes a great background story. For instance, the father of modern medicine, Hippocrates, recorded the power of a powder that came from the willow tree’s leaves and barks that can help alleviate pain, headache and fever. In 1829, scientists learned that the ingredient salicin in the willow tree was the key element of aspirin, and this was later on brought out in the market by pharmaceutical giant, Bayer.

Sales Boosting Strategies#3: Use a catchy tune to praise your product.

Why not make a poem, a song or jingle that sticks to the minds of your audience. A good example of this is Gillette’s use of “The Best a Man Can Get,” which helped them sell millions of their signature blades. Up until now, the song is still quite catchy but at the same time, reminds the consumers of the high quality razors they are selling.

Sales Boosting Strategies#4: Why not change the product packaging for the better.

A transformation in the product packaging does a lot of wonders. But make sure it isn’t just for design purposes, but also for the benefit of your consumers – perhaps something that would make your product easier to use. Take the example of motor oil for instance. They use to be contained in cans that required a can opener that is punch-in, or a different punch-through spout. The problem is, they were too messy and cumbersome. These days, motor oil is available in easy to open, easy to pour plastic bottles.

Sales Boosting Strategies#5: Bank on the consumables.

In order to sell more, consider dropping the selling price of your main product and dwell on promoting and selling the consumables related to it. For example, when it comes to printers, they come as more affordable these days to as low as $20. But the ink cartridges that come with them can go for as high as $30 each. You may not make much profit on the main equipment, but you will on the consumables, which the consumers cannot help but not buy.

Sales Boosting Strategies#6: Be viral.

One of the best promotions you can use is through viral marketing or word of mouth. Research studies say that more people trust people who they know when it comes to information about products and services. Use your core buyers to be your brand ambassadors to spread the good word on your products. You can amplify this via the internet, especially through webmail subscriptions.

Sales Boosting Strategies#7: Customization is key.

With the downpour of products in the marketplace that are all almost the same and almost answering the same consumer needs and wants, you might want to step it up a bit by using customization. Your consumers would appreciate you listening to how they want your product to be uniquely theirs. Think Burger King’s “Have it your way.”

Sales Boosting Strategies#8: Leverage on the advancements in technology.

Why not use the advancements in technology in the media world to your advantage, by helping the spread the word on your product or service offerings. For instance, there are now audio chips that can be added on to brochures, mailers or magazines. The uniqueness of this paraphernalia excites consumers and creates buzz, thus making your product viral.

Sales Boosting Strategies#9: Encourage sharing.

Going emotional is another route you can take; yet you are promoting the value of generosity or family bonding at the same time. Demonstrate how your product can bring together family and friends. Popular examples are friends and family discounts and Almond Joy’s campaign of “you can share half and still have a whole.”

Sales Boosting Strategies#10: Demonstrate your product being used by experts.

“The toothbrush that dentists use themselves.” How strong is that claim? Or Canon cameras being used by expert photographers? Showing your product being used the experts themselves elevates its image at the same time encourages people to feel like an expert on their own.

Sales Boosting Strategies#11: Establish your product’s uniqueness.

Make your product unique and flag out how unique it is that no other product can match it or replace it, and use a catchy line to establish this. Popular examples are: “Make a Xerox copy,” “Blow your nose with a Kleenex,” or Porsche’s “There is no substitute.”

Sales Boosting Strategies#12: Expand your target market.

You have to think outside your current chosen demographic by expanding your base and attracting a new market. Why not go older, or perhaps go younger? Apply some changes in the style, design, or packaging perhaps to expand your market.

There you have it, quite an expansive list of sales boosting strategies that are thought provoking and ideas inducing. Follow these easy strategies and you’ll be on your way to more profits and more success!

Business Tips

Comfort Zone: Work without Limits

comfort zoneComfort zone is more significant than you think. Whether it is a life, relationship, or career decision, it always has a say in the decision making process.

In your career, this determines not only your choices, but also your level of productivity and efficiency in handling the task at hand. Take me for example. I use to supervise personnel. I use to be someone who only had the responsibility of checking up on people and had everyone else do the doing for me. I am in charge of my time, my unit, and every member’s pace.

Comfort zones and their limitations

My old job was easy and comfortable. I was so used to supervising. Being in this zone. that when it was time for me to attend a job interview for another company I was completely shaken. What happened was, one of the interview panel asked me how I could set up a telephone conference, and I responded with asking the IT guys to set the meeting for me. My comfort zone has always been to supervise, so I was completely out of it and have always expected others to do the dirty work for me. I realized that I am asked to act as the sole person responsible to do arrange the conference myself only after the interview. Needless to say I completely lost interest in that job opportunity, and the guts to show up after that shameful scenario. My comfort zone is to stay where I am at the time, and I guess it never really helps anyone grow.

Whenever I look back and share my story to others, I always laugh and just embrace the fact that I have made mistakes simply because I never opened my eyes to move out of my comfort zone – the space and work I have always been accustomed to.

In my new job, I was tasked to advertise by handing out leaflets. It was truly something completely out of my zone. I tried to look for people. Forcefully seeking help and personnel to do the dirty work for me until a friend offered to help. I thought, “If my friend is willing to devote time, and effort for me without anything in return, I should be able to do this. Even if it goes beyond my comfort zone.”

I learned that it is simply a space I leave for myself. My zone is my reason to refuse trying new things, or doing difficult things simply because of fear. That is, fear that I will not be able to do it and fear that I may be rejected.

I realized it wasn’t really fear I was running away from. It was experience, and I was really missing out. There should have been a lot of things I knew by now. There should have been a lot of stories to tell. But it’s my comfort zone that’s been holding me back.

I have always tried to look past it. And I was able to have plenty of jobs and career changes. In these job changes I have always chosen, there is always someone available to help me out just in case I move out of my comfort zone again.

This, in a way, helped me appreciate different perspectives and allowed me to be more flexible. Flexibility to me, is my new zone. Learning to be independent but not limiting myself from seeking help from others.

Positive Communication can Lead to your Success

positive communicationPositive communication is a key towards making your every endeavor a success. With the right techniques, it can make your daily life easy too. Here are proven strategies to help you master its art.

Proven Techniques for Developing a Positive Communication

1) A law states that “If you do not agree with a specific view, never tell the person about it outright”. You can accept one’s view without necessarily agreeing to it. All you need to do is to recognize a person’s opinion. To do so, use the following expressions instead of saying “I don’t think so” or “I do not agree with you”: “That’s a novel idea.”; “That is something I’ve heard for the first time”; “Interesting”; “I haven’t seen the problem that way”.

To develop positive communication, give the person the impression that you are giving him a chance to be understood and to explain himself fully. Afterwards, introduce other topics and avoid entering into a heated argument or a debate.

2) You are judged by your actions. Your actions are the manifestations of your thoughts. So as much as possible, think positively to produce positive actions. The end-goal of positive communication is to create a harmonious relationship with people. This means that you have to create a good impression and be perceived by others as sincere, well-meaning, and credible person. It all starts with the right kind of attitude backed by the right actions.

For example, if you sound and act like a helpless person, you can be perceived as such even if you feel otherwise. If you feel angry and you lash out against everyone you encounter, you will be perceived as hostile even if you think you are just being strict. Conversely, you can control your emotions and actions to your advantage. For example, positive communication dictates that instead of badmouthing people, you should remain calm and composed yet appear firm and just in your words. This way, you can command people who will then respect you and look up to you instead of hating you. In the world of positive communication, diplomacy is always preferred over hostility.

Listen and give respect

3) Accord respect to everyone. If you are running a business, listen even to the voices of your lowest ranked employee. Recognize the fact that everyone may have creative ideas that others haven’t thought of. Use this as valuable opportunity to learn more and develop personally and professionally. Positive communication is all about treating everyone courteously and giving credit where it is due.

4) Listen to others, sit down for a talk and have a dialogue. These things are often neglected by other people, thinking that positive communication is just about speaking effectively. As communication is a two-way process, it demands that you learn how to listen to others in the real sense of the word. Listening makes the person you are talking to feel valuable and his ideas, appreciated. Never ignore a suggestion just because you think it’s absurd. Recognize it anyway even without implementing it.

5) Make a follow up or seek clarification for ambiguous words. One of the best strategies in achieving positive communication is to ask questions. Some people feel embarrassed to ask questions in the belief that they may end up sounding stupid. However, know that there is never a stupid question. By clarifying something, you can avoid any misunderstanding and positive communication can be achieved.
