Help! I'm running out of sales tips to share on our Twitter account. The ones I find when I run a search on Twitter seem to be the same ones, just retweeted over and over.

Care to share sales tips based on your experience? Just 140 characters or less, please. [smile] If you've got a Twitter account, feel free to include your username so I can give credit where it's due.

Thanks!

Hi Dianne [wave]
Here is a quote I often reflect on:

"It's not about what we are selling - it's about building long-term profitable relationships by understanding how we can add value to our customer's business."

Might have to shave some off to keep it under 140 [wink].

It's not how far you fall, but how high you bounce that counts.

Hey QCommission, here's one.

Connect the value to the customer benefit, not the features of the product!

Build trust first through sharing common values then close the deal. The stronger the connection you build with each individual and the more they feel like they can relate to you, the more likely you can convince them to buy what you are trying to sell.

Here's one from Roy Bartell: "Most people think ‘selling’ is the same as ‘talking’. But the most effective salespeople know that listening is the most important part of their job."

Very true since selling is all about understanding your prospects' wants & need and then, fulfilling them.

It's not about what the product is, the important thing is communicating why they would need it.
