5 Phrases You Should Never Say in Sales

These phrases will damage your sales!
To grow your business and make more money, do not use them.

 

1. 'I am sorry that I am late' 

This lowers your status and puts emphasis on the fact you were late.

Instead, simply say:
Thank you for your patience.

 

2. 'Do you make the decisions'?

This can appear disrespectful to the person you are talking with and break the deal.

Instead, simply ask this:
Who else will be involved in the process of making the decision? 

 

3. Would you like us to work together?

Cmon, this sounds like a kid in school asking another one 'wanna be my friend'...

Instead, use the assumptive close and say:
Would you be paying with your debit or should we do a paypal?

 

4. We only work with the best

Many people do not want to be the best or strive to be the best. It sounds gimmicky and elitist without need.

It sounds cool to say this, but it will cost you a lot of sales... 

 

5. My competitors are worse than me

These are the tips I wish I read about sales when I was 22...

 

1. Family and friends are the easiest cutomers

Whenever starting a business, the easiest sale would be to the people who already trust you.

If the product is relevant, offer it to them!

 

2. People will buy you more than they buy your product

If people like you, they are more willing to buy from you.

In fact, they are willing to reject other offers which are better, just because they like you and your personality.

 

3. Buyers focus on the perceived value, more than the actual price

Everything and anything can be expensive and cheap for different people.

Person A, hates football: a shirt signed by messi holds no value to them.

Person B, loves football: is willing to pay $10000 for that same shirt.

 

4. To sell more, you need to connect with more people

Word of mouth is one of the most powerful sales drivers.

Hashtags won't attract people to your page.

Don't get me wrong, hashtags are amazing. The problem with hashtags is they force us to put all our focus on a number.

And we forget where our focus should be.

We can blame other factors for our lack of reach. Or we can put our focus back into the process.

The process of creating content worth interacting with.

The process of serving our cutomers regularly.

The process of building trust and winning hearts over time.

Hashtags serve you for the short-term. Building your brand is a focus for the long-term.
