Details on how to close the sale

  1. Return to the questioning stage

    •Stay close but not to close – When a client needs more time to think about the proposal, you have to be very careful, as anything could happen

    •The client might be close to signing off the deal but there are some internal factors or management issues that is preventing the green light.

    •Many Sales people make the mistake to leave to much time to pass, allowing the prospect to go cold, here are some tips

    • Find out how much time the client needs before to give the final OK, then in between that time, every 3-4 days send soft emails with news updated about the project, or press releases from your Marketing department to give 3rd party integrity, the key is to stay close at all times, then go back to the question stage and your notes to see what little micro details you can use, for example, premium positions, you can send an update with the premium positions you are putting by for them to show you are taking good care of their interests while they get the green light, Editorial support, use this to get them partly committed, by having the editorial department ask for press information related to the project

    • By the time you arrive at the agreed  follow up date, the client will still be warm making it easier to close the sale,

    • I would recommend fixing a face to face meeting for the follow up, once they accept the meeting you have a better chance of closing the sale for sure.
