CHAPTER 1: A EXCELLENT SELLER “MY BELOVED WIFE”

The closer you can get to customers,

the better off you will become the best seller.- Cherry Nguyen

“HOW MUCH SHOULD WE INVEST?

In 1968, we moved to Dallas. Soon after,

I took up teaching courses on sales and on personal motivation and inner inspiration.

I have never been so busy before,

I work continuously from 9am to 9pm and from Monday to Saturday.

We needed to buy a house because obviously we couldn’t stay at the inn forever.

Redhead and I discussed it thoroughly before deciding to invest a “reasonable” amount of money to buy a house.

After determining exactly how much money she would use to buy a house, she said,

“If we find that dream home, can we spend more to buy it?”

That question caused the two of us to have a hard time arguing about how much to buy a house.

We talked and discussed with each other countless times

before coming to the final decision that we could spend another 20 thousand dollars.

Perhaps at the present time the number

That 20k “additional” dollars was the equivalent of a medium-sized garage or yard,

but in 1968, for $20,000, you could build some pretty epic things on a 200 square meter area.

After a long time of hunting everywhere,

Red Hair closed the list of remaining two satisfactory houses.

When she set foot in the second house, she decided to stop the “hunting”.

No one is really served until you close the deal. – Grant Cardone

********

“HOW MUCH FOR THIS HOUSE?”

Every failure is a blessing in disguise,

providing it teaches some needed lesson one could not have learned without it.

Most so-called Failures are only temporary defeats. — Napoleon Hill

That night, when I got home from work,

Red Hair happily announced:

“Darling, I have found our dream home.

There are four beautiful bedrooms

and there is a large backyard to build a swimming pool like we always talk about.

In each room there is a spacious bathroom and a bathtub too!”

I interrupted: “Wait, honey! So how much does that house cost?

My lovely Redhead continued:

“You will surely love it because the private office is very spacious,

the ceiling is designed in the style of the church architecture,

and the garage is large enough for two cars.

You know, the best thing is that you can build a small

and beautiful isolated office like your dream on an area of ​​3.5 x 3.5 (m) at the back of the house.

You will have a quiet space to write there.

One more thing, the master bedroom is so big I could dance there!

Oh, that’s the best house!”

Zig, it’s me (having to interrupt her again):

“Honey, how much is that house?”.

She said the price and you know what,

that price exceeded our $20k max reserve by $18,000! I gently said,

“Honey, we can’t afford that house!”.

Hair
Red gently replied, “I know, but don’t worry.

Since we don’t know much about real estate,

I have invited a construction contractor to come with us tomorrow to take a look.”

In everyone’s life, you have someone you’re looking up to

or looking down to or looking sideways at. – Grant Cardone

********

BE PERSISTENT WITH POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS

People who succeed at the highest level are not lucky;

they’re doing something differently than everyone else. — Tony Robbins

I reluctantly: “Okay, I’ll go, but just take a look.”

She cooed: “I know, don’t worry!”.

I was mesmerized when I saw the house.

Everything, from the design style to the layout, was exactly as I dreamed it would be.

I wanted to buy that house right away but sadly

what we want and what we can sometimes are too far apart.

So I started pretending to my wife and the contractor in the way

that customers usually do with the sales people.

Although I liked the house very much,

I still acted as if I wasn’t very interested.

The reason?

Simply because I was afraid my wife and the contractor would force me to do something I really wanted to do.

It was about buying a house that we certainly couldn’t afford.

So to protect myself from being swayed by my lofty desires,

it’s best to pretend I’m not very interested in the house.

Many times a client firmly refuses to make an appointment with the reason

that he doesn’t want to “waste both you and his time”.

That is the most potential customer

because he knows he really needs the product or service you provide.

However, at that time, he felt that he did not have enough money to buy,

so he did not want to be influenced by seeing samples or hearing you talk about the product.

He sends you an apology saying

“don’t want to waste your time and mine” simply because he knows he can’t buy it yet.

80% of success is showing up. – Grant Cardone

********

STRATEGY “PUSHED INTO A CORNER”

One of the things we know is that you cannot motivate other people,

but you can remove the obstacles that stop them from motivating themselves.

All motivation is self-motivation. — Brian Tracy

In order to avoid being “pushed into a corner” by customers, you need to understand

that saying “I don’t care what your product is” is different from saying

I really like this product, but right now I don’t know how to use it.

I can’t buy it, so I don’t want to hear you talk about it yet.”

A lot of times your client may be in a situation like the one

I walked through the door of his dream home,

and they are inclined to avoid those luxuries by turning down your appointment.

Meanwhile, Redhead happily observed everywhere,

she joyfully exclaimed that the yard in front of the house was very suitable

for building an arched road like I had always dreamed of,

and even had Another gorgeous chandelier in the living room.

She looked at the chandelier and smiled brightly.

She did the right thing.

She wanted me to see her pleasure

and I understood what she wanted!

Getting rich is mostly a game of offense, not defense. – Grant Cardone

********

STRATEGY TO HIT THE CUSTOMERS’ “WANT TO OWNERSHIP”

As soon as you truly commit to making something happen,

the ‘how’ will reveal itself. — Tony Robbins

When we entered the office, she said loudly,

“Honey, this room is so big!”.

Before I could reply, she continued:

“Look, your fireplace is amazing!

The bookshelves too,

I’ll put your books here [suddenly everything is mine!

What a great psychological blow great!].

I’m thinking of you reading a book on a peaceful Sunday afternoon

and gazing at the flames flickering in the fireplace…”

Then she dashed towards the master bedroom.

“Look, it’s so big we could put a table and two chairs in there.

Every morning we will sip coffee together

and enjoy the quiet space of the morning.

Try looking at your built-in closet,

it can hold all your tools in there.”

Then she walked over to the garage and said,

“Oh! There’s enough room here for your two cars!

This land will be used to build his own office.

You’ve been wanting to have a room like that for a long time, haven’t you?”

When we went back into the house, she said,

“When Suzie goes to school away from home (about 2 years),

I will reserve this room for guests to visit, as we often dream.”

After seeing the whole house,

my cute Redhead squeezed my hand

and asked lovingly, “How do you like the house, honey?”

Raise your profile & brand by developing yourself as an authority. – Grant Cardone

********

STRATEGY TO HIT THE CUSTOMER’S CONFUSION

It’s not over until you win. – Les Brown

How should I answer my wife?

Obviously I can’t say,

“I don’t like this house” because that’s not true.

So I said, “Honey, I love that house.

It’s beautiful, but you know well

that we don’t have enough money to buy a house like that.”

Will the things I say make her sad or not?

Absolutely not.

She looked at me with sparkling eyes:

“Honey, I know that, but I just wanted to show you something beautiful [pause].

Now I will keep looking to see if there is a cheaper house.”

(Oh!!! She is confusing me by not choosing to buy such a satisfactory house!)

That night Redhead said nothing about that house.

The next morning, while I was brushing my teeth, she came in and asked,

“How long are we going to live here in Dallas?”

“Ummm, it must have been quite a while.”

Complaining won’t get you a seat. – Grant Cardone

********

AND HOW MY WIFE ASK ME BUY HOUSE

Know your gifts and share them. – Les Brown

Redhead asked hesitantly,

“Do you think we’ll be here for another 30 years?” I replied,

“Sure! Oh, how I like Dallas because it’s so convenient for me.

But why did you choose 30 years?”.

She continued, “Darling, if we stay here for another 30 years,

how much will the extra $18,000 a year be divided?”

(She forgot, or deliberately ignored the original value of the house.

She “forgot” the sizable $20,000 extra on top of our initial agreement

when we discussed the money to buy the house and interest, insurance, and taxes!)

I do the math “$18,000 divided by 30 years, you spend $600 per year”.

She pressed:

“So how much a month?”. “50 dollars a month”.

My wife continued: “How much is it? how much a day?”

“Come on, I know. 1 dollar 70 cents a day,

but why are you asking me that?” She was very resolute:

“Can I ask you one more question?”.

Looking at her pleading face, I couldn’t refuse:

“What’s that?”.

Just waiting for that, she immediately said:

“Brother, can you spend 1 dollar and 70 cents a day for your wife to be completely happy?

Or do you want your wife to be just an ordinary happy person like now?”.

I believe you can guess where we live right now.

This story contains a lot of remarkable technical and psychological developments.

At first, I knew well that my wife was trying to convince me,

but there was nothing I could do to avoid that uncomfortable feeling.

Just like me, customers could not be treated differently from enthusiastic salespeople like my beloved wife.

Really, it’s hard for anyone to resist this technique,

especially because a person wants to bring good to others

(my wife analyzed it for me, and by doing so,

I am bringing great happiness to others).

Thinking big takes the same amount of effort as thinking small. – Grant Cardone

********

APPLY TO YOUR SITUATION 

STRATEGY “1902”

Goals help you channel your energy into action. – Les Brown

After listening to my story,

the first thing I want is for you to apply it to your actual situation.

I call the strategy my wife used on me the “1902” Strategy because in
1902,

Frederick Sheldon presented this strategy in one of his books.

The irony is that my wife learned this tactic while attending my sales training classes

and successfully applied it to one of her “potential customers,” me here.

Stop dreaming about life being easy.

Go out and earn it. – Grant Cardone

********

DON’T HEAR EVERYTHING FROM CUSTOMERS

Life has no limitations except the ones you make. – Les Brown

The second note through this story is to “listen” to Redhead.

She never “heard” me whining, “How did we get all that money?

We can’t buy that house!

At that time, I suddenly suspected that my wife had hearing problems?!

She wanted that house and didn’t want to hear any talk about not buying it.

I think salespeople should also pretend to have hearing problems

when customers say they don’t care about their products.

Every time a customer says “The price is too high” or “I don’t care”,

they are probably just implying

that they won’t pay a “big” amount for such a “small” profit.

In such cases, learn how to “hear” Redhead to become a person with “hearing problems”.

Another thing that is equally important is

that Redhead never shows any discomfort,

meaning argue or confront me.

When she persuaded me,

she always believed that she would eventually succeed.

She never argues when I talk about not having enough money

and that is very necessary because arguing only creates invisible opposites

and you will certainly have a greater difficulty in easing the conflict

against moderate impact on your customers.

Successful entrepreneurs are givers

and not takers of positive energy. – Grant Cardone

********

STRATEGIES TO MAKE CUSTOMERS BELIEVE THEY CAN PAY EASY

If you don’t program yourself, life will program you!” – Les Brown

Redhead is an optimist and she knows I am too.

She believes that I will try to get a few more lessons

or try to do a few more sales to make that additional “$1 70 cents a day” income.

Therefore, the third note drawn from this story is

that the salesperson must optimistically think

that the customer can pay for that product or service.

One thing is for sure, in many cases,

the salesperson’s expectations have a direct relationship to the customer’s decision.

In any meeting with your client,

show them that you’re looking forward to the success of the deal.

The fourth note is that you can sell more easily by asking leading questions

than by simply talking.

With his questions,

Redhead gradually made me “enlighten” that not only could we afford to buy that house,

but we should also buy it.

This is also the Socratic strategy that many doctors,

lawyers, accountants, counselors, pastors,

detectives and countless other successful people have applied

and achieved much success along their careers and their lives.

Working to earn more money isn’t greedy, it’s your duty. – Grant Cardone

********

CLEAR OBJECTIVES

No one will take better care of your dream than you. – Les Brown

The fifth note is that Redhead understands she needs to convince me of that $18,000 increase.

Before she went looking for a house, she made me agree on

how much money I would use to buy a house.

She even forced me to agree to pay another twenty thousand dollars,

if necessary.

Like an excellent salesperson

she knew well that we didn’t need to discuss anything that had already been decided.

If you’re working in real estate,

when a client says he’s looking to buy a $200,000 home,

you’ve got a $200,000 order in hand.

Then, your job is just to lead him to a specific home and talk to the seller

to get them to agree to sell at a lower price than the asking price.

At that time, you were just a very ordinary salesman.

To receive the title of “excellent salesman” you must identify the needs and wants of the customer.

In the above case,

you have to convince the customer to buy a $250,000 house,

instead of the $200,000 house he can afford.

To make things feel easy,

think that you just need to convince him to pay $50,000 because in fact,

he has already “agreed” to pay 200,000 dollars

and you don’t have to work unnecessary effort to convince them to spend that money.

In fact, he has a real need for housing that’s why he came to you.

The same goes for other products,

if a customer wants to spend an amount of X dollars

but in the end the product that meets his needs is X plus one more amount,

then your “main” task is to convince him to agree to pay the extra amount

and you have a successful deal.

Like I said, Redhead’s “job” at the time was to convince me to pay an extra $18,000 to buy the house.

She knew that when it came to $18,000 plus $20,000 plus initial home purchase plus taxes,

insurance premiums, and interest,

I obviously wouldn’t “accept” it.

So, she just mentioned the final add-on of $18,000 and split it up to the maximum.

She knows that in my heart I will buy anything she likes and she also knows

that I believe I can work a little harder to get more money to pay for a happy home for her

and she went out of her way to prove

that that extra payment is ultimately about serving the basic needs of life.

She’s so smart that she doesn’t give a reason

why we should buy houses overwhelms the way we buy houses.

Let’s break down the price so that customers can easily accept your products and services.

Go the extra mile; there’s no one on it. – Grant Cardone

**********

FIND OUT WHAT CUSTOMERS WANT

If it’s hard, do it hard! Nobody said it would be easy. – Les Brown 

Because you can’t know your customer as well as Red Hair knows about me, her client,

the sixth note is that you try to learn about your customer as thoroughly as possible.

My wife knows very well what I want. For example, she always remembers that,

when I was a kid, I was quite angry

when I announced that I was going to build a big swimming pool.

This is what happened:

When I was a kid, while living in Yazoo City, Mississippi,

my best friend called me once and asked me to go swimming at a country club,

which was the only place in town that had a swimming pool.

I rode my bike to the club in the scorching summer sun,

hurriedly changed into my swimsuit and just waited to jump in the water.

I waited a long time and still did not see my friend coming.

The pool was so attractive that I decided to jump in.

An employee in the club saw me and realized

that I was not a member of this club, so he immediately kicked me out of the pool.

The next day, he even “invited” me to his office to talk.

I have never felt so scared.

He told me about the club’s rules and regulations

and used unpleasant words. As soon as I walked out of the office,

I couldn’t hold back my tears and made a eloquent statement like children do

when angry about being touched, I “swore”:

“One day I will going to build a pool bigger than the club pool in Yazoo City, Mississippi.”

Because of my pride, I made such a “loud” statement.

However, later, when there was a certain success in life,

the childhood dream resurfaced.

In 1969, we built a swimming pool in the backyard.

It’s exactly 0.3 meters longer than that club’s swimming pool!

Find out all the information related to the customer,

break down the price of the product,

convince the customer with all your optimism and pretend not to hear their objections.

Ask lots of questions to identify the problem and lead the customer to make a final decision.

Find out what can solve a customer’s problem

and show them that the product you offer is the solution they are looking for.

10 times the actions, 10 times the goals,

and you’ll get everything you ever dreamed of. – Grant Cardone

**********

THREE THINGS CUSTOMERS WANT TO HAVE

You have the courage and power to live your dreams. – Les Brown

When I moved from Columbia, South Carolina to Dallas,

I told Redhead in advance that she would decide everything from style,

placement, materials to accessories to make it her dream home “of the two of us,”

minus three things: it was a huge arrow-shaped swimming pool for me to make my childhood “declaration”,

a small study room where I could write my favorite book talks about it

but take no action, and an arched driveway.

Of course, none of these three things were built,

but the excellent sales “housewife,” my Red Hair,

thoughtfully set aside places where I could build a swimming pool,

set up my own office.

Or make an arched driveway in front of the house.

This is indeed a very important point.

There are times when customers will ask you about very detailed things.

If you can give them what they want, there’s no point in the deal.

But you also need to remember that many people don’t know

what they want because they don’t know what options they have.

So, take note.

The seventh is that if you can’t exactly meet the needs of your customers,

don’t rush to think that they are too fastidious.

Many times when we go shopping,

we often predetermine what we need to buy,

but end up buying something else that we like better.

The house doesn’t have what I want at the moment,

but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t fit.

Redhead has shown me that we can build three more things I’ve always wanted.

This involves the salesperson’s imaginative ability to help the customer get what they want. Remember:

You can have everything in life if you know how to help other people get what they want.

If people don’t know you for your work ethic, you ain’t working. – Grant Cardone

 

**************
Chapter 2: CUSTOMERS IS “GOD”

EVERYTHING IS NOT SIMPLE!

There’s a lot to be done if you want to become a seasoned salesperson

or want to dramatically increase sales while still building strong customer relationships.

If you want to fully develop your sales ability then work and work harder.

Deep understanding of psychology will help you understand why potential customers “react”

or “react” to certain sales techniques or tactics.

These psychological insights are especially important

because if you know how to do something competently you will always get a job,

but if you understand the why, you will be the boss.

Most people are dying at 20 and making it official at 80.

Most people are living their life with nothing to brag or talk about. – Grant Cardone

********

AWARENESS FIRST, CONSCIOUS AFTER

No matter how bad it is or how bad it gets I am going to make it. – Les Brown

Perhaps nothing frustrates a salesperson more than a customer’s rejection of a product of good quality, cost-effective,

affordable, that fulfills wants, needs, and financial capabilities.

Customer’s main!

That shows that customers have believed

but are not completely convinced to make a purchase decision.

Despite being considered one of the greatest thinkers of all time,

Aristotle also had a theory that was completely wrong.

He suggested that if two bodies of the same mass with different masses fall from the same height,

they will fall at different speeds.

Aristotle’s doctrine was taught at the University of Pisa.

Years later, Galileo challenged Aristotle’s doctrine by stating the opposite.

The professors and students of Pisa were so amazed

that Galileo dared to refute the great Aristotle’s argument,

they challenged him to prove his argument.

Galileo proved his point by climbing to the top of the Leaning Tower of Pisa,

dropping two objects of the same material with different masses from a height,

and he saw them land at the same time.

He proved to professors and students that he was right and Aristotle wrong.

In your opinion, do the professors of the University of Pisa teach students the new theory of Galileo?

The answer was that they continued to teach Aristotle’s doctrine because Galileo proved

to them that his theory was correct, but he did not convince them.

So, the question is:

(a) How to persuade others? (b) What is persuasion?
The answer is:

(a) To persuade others, you should not tell them, but ask them.

(b) Persuasion comes from the French word, which means “to give good advice”.

Throughout the principles and tips covered in this book,

we’ll explore the role sales professionals play in the process of becoming a “consultant”

or buying guide the can give really useful advice.

In the process of learning the basics of sales,

you will encounter more than 700 different questions,

and here are the questions for you.

Be great because nothing else pays. – Grant Cardone

********

STRATEGY “MORE NEW INFORMATION”

You don’t get in life what you want;

you get in life what you are. – Les Brown

You may think these questions are too simple,

but answering them will clear your mind

and set the tone for the course of this book.

Now pick up your pen and answer these simple questions in turn:

Question: Is the product you are offering relatively good quality? Yes No

Question: Is the product you are offering exceptionally good quality? Yes No

Question: Can the product you’re offering solve one or more customer problems?

One problem Many problems

Question: Do you think you deserve a profit for selling a product that can solve a customer problem?

Yes No

Question: Do you feel you deserve double the profit for selling two products that solve two customer problems?

Yes No

Most likely you will choose the answer “yes” to the above questions.

Obviously your mentality is that the more problems you can solve for your customers, the more profit you will expect.

That’s not wrong.

Question: Have you been in sales for a year? Yes No

Question: If so, have you saved all your earnings during these twelve months in this sales job?

Yes No

In my opinion, the “safe” answer to this question is “no”.

Question: Are there any of your customers,

even though they bought a product a year ago, but now?

Still using and getting benefits of the product offered by you?

Yes No

If your answer is “yes” in most cases, the next question would be:

Who “benefits” the most, you or the customer?

If the customer is the biggest beneficiary,

who should thank whom when a deal is closed?

It is possible that you will quickly spend all or most of the profits

or commissions received after closing the deal.

But the benefits that customers get from the product they buy are likely to last even years into the future.

So if your product helps customers solve problems and has a reasonable price,

the customer will benefit the most.

Question: Are the necessary work that you have to do “for” the customer or “for” the customer?

This is one of the most basic and important issues.

If you think you’re working “for” a client, you’re a “trick”.

The word ‘trick’ is defined as ‘using some ‘trick’

to control an action sometimes for the sake of fraud

or because there is always a thought to do so”.

With over fifty years of experience in the business,

I have never met a single person

who has used this “trick” successfully in a professional sales career.

And if you think you’re working “for” the customer,

this book will be a powerful support tool because it enriches your sales knowledge.

Your concern and desire to benefit others will bring you many benefits – tangible and intangible.

Salespeople should understand the needs of customers to provide suitable products or services

and convince customers to buy for their own benefit.

Leaving your comfort zone is hard.

Staying broke is hard.

Pick your hard. – Grant Cardone

********

CUSTOMER IS GOD, SELL IS SERVICE

Act the way you want to be and soon you’ll be the way you act. – Les Brown

The above questions are asked to form in your mind a thought

that customers
is the one who benefits the most

(in case the product is reasonably priced and of good quality, of course).

So what if we assume that the customer is always the one who has to receive the most benefits?

Let’s put ourselves in the customer’s shoes.

Before your proper analysis, the customer is actually convincing himself.

Then you will have more chances to “lead” him to the action of buying

because there is nothing he can refuse anymore, that is your goal.

Criticism precedes admiration and like it

or not goes hand in hand with success. – Grant Cardone

********

WHY DO CUSTOMERS DO NOT BUY BOTH NOW AND IN THE FUTURE?

The people that want to step into their greatness are hungry. – Les Brown

There are five basic reasons

why customers refuse to buy, including:

(1) no need,

(2) no money,

(3) no motivation,

(4) no desire,

and (5) ) distrust.

Even if the customer doesn’t want to buy for any reason,

you will lose a sale and of course that customer will not receive the benefits that the item brings.

Because a failed sale will cost both parties,

you need to thoroughly understand why customers won’t buy your product.

The probability of success will be much higher if you know the reasons

why customers refuse and deal with them appropriately.

One of the five reasons why customers don’t want to buy is

because they see themselves as having no need for that product.

Salespeople will face a lot of difficulties if everyone has a “conservative” mindset: “We should only buy what we need”.

I want to mention this aspect because human needs are limitless.

We ourselves or our customers always buy what we want or desire to have.

This is the main reason why “wants” (the fourth reason)

influence customers’ purchasing decisions.

Now we will return to the question of need

and find out what the customer means when he says there is no need.

In many cases, if not most, customers say “no need”

because they themselves don’t know that they are in need.

“Money” is the second reason why customers refuse to buy.

There are many people who really don’t have money

or don’t have enough money and above all,

the sales person must be the one to know if their customers have money or not

because some people often don’t tell the truth

when they say they have no money or not have enough money to buy this or that product.

You will never be admired without being criticized first. – Grant Cardone

********

STRATEGY TO HIT THE CUSTOMERS’ “I WANT THAT PRODUCT”

Live out of your imagination instead of out of your memory. – Les Brown

The following little story will shed light on this point.

Years ago, when I was just getting into sales,

I called the Funderburk family in Lancaster, South Carolina.
Their main job is to raise chickens and sell eggs.

I introduced them as well as a few people around about the cookware set.

The presentation took place at their house and I also had the opportunity

to observe the kitchen and the pots and pans they did not have.

Apparently they had a need for kitchen utensils

so I spent two hours trying to convince them but it all went nowhere.

Ms. Funderburk kept saying:

“They’re too expensive, I can’t afford to buy them!”.

After a while someone spoke of the excellent quality of porcelain.

When I just mentioned

When she reached the porcelain, her eyes lit up.

And the conversation goes like this.

Mrs. Funderburk: “Do you sell porcelain?”

Zig (smiling): “We have the best porcelain in the world.”

(Of course that’s from my point of view.)

Mrs. Funderburk: “Did you bring any?” Zig

(stands up and punches the car hard): “You’re lucky!”

A few minutes later I left Mrs. Funderburk’s house with an order for many times more expensive porcelain

than the pots and pans I had tried to convince her to buy.

My problem at that time had nothing to do with sales,

but to ask her what model of porcelain she would choose

and proceed with the payment procedures.

Question: Was Mrs. Funderburk lying that she didn’t have enough money

when in reality she ordered much more expensive porcelain than the kitchenware I recommended?

That’s an interesting question.

The answer was “yes”,

she lied and I am one of the purists who believe that a lie is unlikely to be a lie.

However, the purpose of this book is to help you persuade your customers

to act in their own interest.

So let’s think like customers, have the same feelings as them and become their buying advisor.

When Mrs. Funderburk says she has no money

and can’t afford a set of pots and pans, she means:

“I didn’t pay for that set of pots and pans simply because I didn’t want it.”

So, in her mind, she thought she was telling the truth,

even if only a very small part of the truth.

The key in situations like these is how to uncover the real reason

why Ms. Funderburk isn’t buying.

In this case, the real reason wasn’t lack of money,

but because she didn’t have the “wish” to own the product.

Throughout this book I will cover probing techniques for finding out

what other people are thinking.

Ms. Funderburk bought porcelain for several reasons:

(1) she really wanted it;

(2) she trusted me;

(3) I really persevered in my role as a purchasing consultant and during the conversation,

she expressed her desire to own fine porcelain,

not a set of pots and pans.

Quit sharing bad news and gossip;

you aren’t a garbage truck. – Grant Cardone

********

CUSTOMERS BUY WHAT THEY WANT

In fact Mrs. Funderburk needed a set of kitchen utensils used in her daily life and

that porcelain set was probably only used a few times a year but she WANT A Porcelain set.

The bottom line in sales is:

Customers buy what they want, even if that desire outweighs the money they have to spend.

In all cases, customers buy what they really want – not necessarily what they need.

Your opportunity and mission is to bring them benefits from your products and services.

Surely customers will continue to want to buy your products, not just once but many times.

No economy, no matter how bad,

can hold down a goal that is followed by enough action. – Grant Cardone

********

WHEN CUSTOMERS REFUSE

Never let someone’s opinion become your reality.

Never sacrifice

who you are because someone else has a problem with it.

Love who you are inside and out. – Les Brown

The third reason customers don’t buy a product is

because they don’t feel the need to buy right away,

so you shouldn’t worry too much about timing.

Customers sometimes ask the seller,

“Why do you keep trying to convince me to buy that product today?

I am thirty-nine years old and have lived years without this product.

Did you only come to see me once?”

or “Will I see you again? So why are we in such a hurry?”

One of the biggest obstacles is the “There is no rush” reason.

Therefore, the most difficult task of the salesperson is to get the customer interested enough

to make a purchase decision at the moment you convince them.

You get rich connecting with opportunities

that can produce and multiply money.

You don’t get rich saving money.

Missing opportunities is

what costs people money. – Grant Cardone

STRATEGY “STORY OF A GUFF”

In every day, there are 1440 minutes.

That means we have 1440 daily opportunities to make a positive impact. – Les Brown

The most effective trick to get customers out of the “rigid” mindset is

to agree with them

instead of constantly persuading them to buy.

In situations like these,

I usually just smile and say, “Sir, based on my own experience,

I think you’re probably right and you don’t need to buy right now.

Looking back on my own life,

I think that getting married with my wife was a financial mistake.

Weddings cost a lot, if we waited another twenty years,

we could have had the most memorable honeymoon of our lives!

It was also a mistake for us to start a family life

because if we had waited another ten or fifteen years,

the children would have had a better life.

The decision to buy our first house was really a mistake

because as long as we waited patiently for another twenty or thirty years,

our house would probably be many times bigger and more beautiful.

But sir, there is a problem that if you wait

until everything is perfect you will be like the two characters in the following poem:

Gray hair, hunched back, hands on cane, bride entering the cathedral

Sneaking in the footsteps of the children

Smiling mouth

By the aisle, the groom slowly approached in a wheelchair

It’s them, the old couple

Do you notice the “miracle” as they get closer?

That the lovers ” most persistent”

Waiting for each other, silver heads, “enough” money to become husband and wife.

Excerpt from Timid Salesmen Have Skinny Kids, Judge Ziglar” After reading the poem,

I will be silent for a moment and then continue to say:

“I believe there is no time.
Which point is most appropriate?

There is a Chinese saying that a journey of a thousand miles always begins with the first step.

You and I both know that ownership of this product is established

as soon as the purchase decision is made.

In fact, now you only need to care if the price I offer is suitable for your financial ability

and what we have discussed also shows to you, price is not an issue.

What made you decide not to buy an item

that will surely benefit you and your loved ones?”

A little imagination combined with massive action goes a long way. – Grant Cardone

********

TARGET TO GIVE “MANY CHOICES FOR CUSTOMERS”

You are the only real obstacle in your path to a fulfilling life. – Les Brown

Always give customers a choice between one add-on and another,

such as “Do you want us to deliver as soon as possible or within the next two weeks?”

or “Do you want to pick up this product now or will we deliver it to your door?”.

This is a frequently used technique and has proven to be quite effective.

Note that it should not be given a situation

where customers choose between any solution and a solution not to buy, guys!

Think about it!

What’s the worst thing that can happen to you if you just totally go for it? – Grant Cardone

********

CUSTOMERS WILL BUY IF THEY REALLY WANT

You must remain focused on your journey to greatness. – Les Brown

The fourth reason so many customers don’t buy your product is

because they really don’t want to.

Most of the salespeople and me of course found it rather strange

that none of us wanted to buy the items we were selling!

This is real. If the trust you have in your product is too great

you will not be able to understand

why someone would not want to buy those items

and it will be difficult for you to accept this fact.

So, keep in mind that customers are only rejecting your offer to buy,

not they’re rejecting you personally.

Success is not something that happens to you;

it’s something that happens because of you

and because of the actions you take. – Grant Cardone

********

STRATEGY “BUY NOW OR NO OTHER OPPORTUNITY”

People inspire you or they drain you.

Pick them wisely. – Les Brown

When she was introducing the cookware set to a widow living in a small town in Elgin,

South Carolina, she groaned incessantly when she heard me talk about the price of the cookware,

which was,

“Oh my god.

Oh, I can never afford that set of pots and pans.

I’m just a widow, I have to support myself.

Every morning I have to eat with my son and daughter-in-law at their house.

It only cost me 1 cent for lunch and I didn’t have dinner.

I go to work every day, maybe only Sunday is the only day I use that set of pots and pans.”

She continued: “I was nearing retirement age,

when I only received a meager pension.”

After giving me a bunch of reasons

why she couldn’t buy my product,

she looked at me again and smiled shyly:

“But Zig, I’ve only wanted to have a set of pots and pans all my life.

If I don’t buy it now, I won’t have a chance.

I guess I’ll have to buy your pots and pans.”

Along with her desire was the fear of losing an opportunity she would never see again,

the fear of missing out on something very important.

It is a purely psychological fact, the fear of losing something is stronger than the desire to own it.

I was fortunate to be in the right place at the right time

and with the exact product the woman was dreaming of.

In addition, I always kept quiet

and listened to her “rapidly” talk about my difficulties.

This makes her feel more comfortable

and assumes that the purchase decision comes from her own will.

I don’t have time is the biggest lie you tell yourself. – Grant Cardone

********

CUSTOMERS WILL BUY IF THEY TRUST YOU

When your why is big enough you will find your how. – Les Brown

The fifth reason is probably the most important reason why customers don’t want to buy your product:

they don’t trust you!

It is difficult to identify and identify this reason because few customers directly say:

“Hey, you know you are lying to me!

Why can’t you admit it?

More than anyone, he knows that this product is not as good as what he is advertising.”

Customers don’t directly say that you are a liar,

but if they think or feel that way, the situation is no different.

They won’t buy from you.

The feeling of doubt is often vague, but once it does, it can cost you a deal.

Research results of the New York Sales and Marketing Association show

that up to 71% of customers decide to buy

because they like, trust and respect the seller.

The bottom line here is that you

the salesperson cannot contradict who you really are.

Be consistent in all aspects of your life

if you want to achieve great success in building a professional sales career.

This is also one of the “no small” reasons to help you make a strong impression in the minds of customers.

Numerous evidences have been proven such as:

research by Connecticut Mutual life insurance organization,

research by Professor Robert Coles of Harvard University,

Corporate Bigamy by Mortimer Feinberg and Richard Dempewolff;

reports of affiliate forums,

Cox reports and other studies have shown that feeling is something powerful.

Companies always give certain preferences to job seekers

who have professional ethics, honesty,

and determination to build their own career.

Professional ethics requirements are necessary for any profession or field
– especially sales.

A salesperson who has the ability to persuade but has no work ethic can “fascinate” customers,

causing them to buy useless products or services at a “heavenly” price.

But what happens next?

Firstly, customers have lost money unjustly and lost a certain amount of trust in people.

Second, salespeople have lost their self-esteem

and chance of achieving real career success by focusing only on immediate benefits.

Finally, the sales profession also loses credibility and public trust.

I strongly believe that success in sales will come to you faster and easier,

even that success will be brilliant and lasting if you know how to put work ethic first.

That’s why I always emphasize that the most important thing in the sales process is the salesperson himself.

If you don’t like how things are, change it!

You’re not a tree. – Jim Rohn
