10. What is a Consultative Sales Approach?
Prospects buy for their reasons not ours, and even if our reasons are aligned with theirs, it is always much more powerful to have the prospect verbalise their thoughts aloud. The Consultative selling methodology helps salespeople create the right conditions for the sale by provoking and motivating the buyer with questions.
From the outset, our mindset must be to look for and define a gap between where the prospect is now and where they want/need to be after the successful adoption of our product/service. No gap means no sale.
Defining the symptoms means as prospects invariably are not subject matter experts on your product/service they can often misdiagnose their problems. When the prospect misdiagnoses the problem they invariably then misdiagnose the solution. Symptoms are what the prospect is experiencing at a surface level and often never the real problem.
By using specialised questioning techniques and active listening we can help prospects uncover the underlying problems behind the business pain they are experiencing and where necessary gently challenge their assumptions in a way that maintains rapport.
By using a question based approach we prevent sales reps from delivering canned sales pitches of your product or service that makes them look and sound like a traditional sales person.
A consultative approach can be used throughout the sales process from discovering customer’s needs through to closing a sale.
11. Lunch, Refreshments & Access
This programme is now delivered online and does not include lunch and refreshments.
12. Consultative Sales Training Course Delivery Options
This course can be delivered as a stand alone or part of a wider sales enablement programme.
We work with sales leaders prior to the training to create sales campaigns to target potential customers that give course attendees the opportunity to learn by doing. All our training is supported by live coaching which is focussed on helping sales teams with the practical application of the new strategies and tactics learned during the training.
Our coaches are practical hands-on facilitators who lead from the front. We don’t just teach your sales team new skills, we show them how to execute the sales strategies live as part of the coaching. This may include live calls, meetings and presentations – theory is great, however, it’s no substitute for live demonstrations.
We work with sales reps to develop the most impactful pain points relevant to your prospect’s needs and your products and services, how to build trust, using a long term approach and the right questions to ask. Our training covers everything from active listening skills to, presentation and the steps required to close a sale.
13. Training Evaluation Survey
As part of our Quality control we ask every participant to complete a Training Evaluation Survey after every workshop. The Evaluation focusses on the three main areas of delivery a) Training Content b) Trainer Delivery and c) Learning Environment.
14. Reviews from Previous Course Attendees
“I found the course which I attended that Iain ran to be very informative, insightful and well structured. It covered a huge amount of ground but in very digestible pieces which meant that after two days I felt that I was leaving with a considerably greater understanding of selling psychology and a notebook full of helpful techniques. Would highly recommend his sales training to anyone.”
Michelle MacFadyen – Regional Manager
“I attended a Klozers Sales Training course on Consultative Selling Skills recently and it was definitely the best training I have ever had – in fact, anyone who knows me has heard me raving about it ever since!
Cheryl Philipson – Business Development Director
“Iain’s recent Sales Masterclass was an excellent course from which I learned much more than I expected. Iain has an excellent style of delivery, expertly mixing theoretical learning with real world examples in an environment which ensures everybody gains the maximum value from the course.
Allan Paterson – Communications Officer
