When should you stop selling?

By Peter Heredia Managing Director

Peter has been involved with sales for over 2 decades, dealing with multiple industries and diverse sales team cultures. He knows how to get the best out of any sales team and has the experience and results to back it up.

It is far too common that when a sales person hands over their proposal or quotation they stop actively selling.  Big mistake, now is the time when decisions must be influenced…

After spending a lot of time and hard work developing solutions and benefits ready for the client, many sales people simply deliver a proposal then relax and cautiously wait for the response.
However, when you think about it, this is when the customer is making up their mind.

  • Isn’t now when you have to be most persuasive?
  • Isn’t now you need to be convincing the customer to buy?
  • Isn’t this time, immediately after the proposal has been submitted, the perfect time to sell?

One question I am sure is going through your mind is “after all the work done so far, what selling do we have left to do?”. You are right, your proposal is in and you should have put everything onto it, however, it doesn’t mean you can’t stop trying to convince the client that your product or service is Number 1 and the right one for them. There are many ways to achieve this! You can take up executive sales coaching or the training programs offered.
