Selling yourself is just as important as engaging in sales for the customers to by your product. Doing sales is one of the most exciting professions albeit also one of the toughest. It can be a really trying task, especially when you encounter tough buyers. You will need all the training you can get in order to sell to customers like them. This is a good time to ask you – is selling yourself as a person of integrity something you prioritize or do you only focus on how you can make your product appealing to the customer? Would you sell a product solely because of its value or would you see to it that the buyer believes in you and trusts that you won’t sell anything dissatisfying to them? Would you believe me when I say that the product is just as trustworthy as the one who sells it?
Questions to ask when selling yourself
How would you sell yourself to your buyers? Asking yourself these questions will help you succeed in selling yourself as a reliable person, bringing you closer to more success with your customers!
- Do you come across as a person who knows what you are selling? Examine yourselves. Check if you’re ready with all the answers or if you always need time to check references for them. Do you know about the competitive products enough to tell your customers about them in as much detail as you can for your own product? See to it that you aren’t selling your product merely for the commission or salary but that you are selling your products to your customer because you truly believe that it is good for them.
- Do you know your buyers well enough? Make it a point to know their regular habits. It’s also a big help if you know about their family and other personal details. Maintaining the attitude of a friend rather than a hard-headed professional when you talk to your customers is good for selling yourself as it will make them feel more familiar and trust you more.
- Do you come across as an honest person? Do you reflect the image of the company for which you are working? Check yourself and see if you are consistent with your promises of after-sales services or if you forget the buyers once you close the deal with them. How reliable do your buyers see you to be? Do they see the character that you intend to portray when selling yourself? If they do, it gives you the chance to raise your commissions to any limit.
All these questions are very essential especially if you want to be assured success when you sell your products to your clients. More than knowing what’s so great about your product and how to sell them, the foundation of your success in sales stems from how skilled you are in selling yourself.
