Why Did YOU Start Selling? It Was Probably Because Of The Money

The vast majority of sales professionals polled would say that they got into sales because of the great opportunity to make money. It’s natural, and there’s nothing wrong with it at all. But Doug points out that our innate “me first” approach has to be abandoned if we want more sales wins. Why is that? Because sales is the art of helping – and you can’t help customers if you’re not thinking of their needs, wants, and problems first.

The beautiful thing is that once you get your thinking turned around to a “customer first” perspective to discover and solve their problems, you begin to experience the increase in sales that produces the cash you were hoping for in the first place. Doug shares a number of helpful illustrations and concepts about how it works on this episode, so be sure you listen!

Learn To Make Your Buyers C.R.I.N.G.E. For More Sales Wins

Doug points out an interesting phenomenon that happens whenever a person says “No” to something they really want. They cringe as they say it, because they want it so bad. He says sellers need to do such a good job presenting their solutions that buyers have to cringe if they are going to say “No” to the offer. He uses the acronym, C.R.I.N.G.E. to help us remember the basic elements that create this kind of cringe-worthy offer.

C – Move away from a “me first” mindset and toward a customer first mindset

R – Make sure you’re addressing the real problem the buyer has

I – Provide immense value through your solution – in time, ease, status, or money terms

N – Be convinced that your solution is non-negotiable, something the buyer can’t live without

G – Make your offer with good timing by knowing your customer and your competition

E – Make it easy for your buyer to say, “Yes” through providing a low barrier of entry

Doug goes into detail on each of these, including foundational questions you can ask at each stage to truly discover if your offer is going to make your buyer cringe, so don’t miss it!

Personalizing Sales Emails Creates The Opportunity For More Sales Wins

If you are still sending out template emails, STOP IT. You’re alienating yourself and your company from the very people you’d like to consider your solutions. You’ve got to take the time required to become familiar with your buyers. You need to know exactly what to say to each of them individually. Here’s how you can do that…

Doug suggests that you run your email through a quick “litmus test” before you hit “send.” Ask yourself, “Would I say this to the person receiving it if I were to meet them face to face?” If you wouldn’t, you shouldn’t be sending the email. Why, because it’s not personalized enough. Personalization is what gets you past the natural skepticism your prospects already have to sales messages. It shows them that you have taken the time to understand them and their problems – that you CARE about who they are and what they need. That’s how you open the door to start a conversation that could lead to a sales win.

Simplicity: The Sales Secret Most Of Us Avoid

One aspect of Doug’s advice that is so refreshing is that the things he suggests are simple – in fact, his entire C.R.I.N.G.E framework is based on simplicity.

Look at any highly successful business – Facebook, Apple, Uber – they have all accomplished virtually the same thing: a simple, reproducible process for selling and delivering their product or service that makes it easy for consumers to buy over and over. The main component of that formula is SIMPLICITY. It’s what makes the product easy to use and understand. It’s what makes the buying process easy. In Doug’s model, the acronym helps us simply keep track of how we are formulating and presenting our sales messaging.

Continue listening to hear Doug’s list of reasons we DON’T simplify our sales processes, and learn his solutions.
