7 Sales Closing Tips to help close the deal

Their are many types of sales closers. Yet, there are only a few skill sets required for any salesperson to close the deal.

  • How you got the meeting provides the guidance necessary to know how to prepare for the meeting.
  • Social media provides significant company and personal information critical in meeting preparation.
  • The key to the successful face-to-face meeting hinges on building rapport or what I call an emotional connection with the customer, and keeping the meeting interactive.
  • The ability to improvise in response to customer needs and questions is a critical skill necessary in maintaining control of the meeting and building the rapport with the customer.
  • StorySelling (storytelling), using company stories or personal metaphorical stories that fit the situation, is the important tool to make the emotional connection with the customer.
  • Closing the meeting (I didn’t say close the deal) with clearly defined next steps leads to a deal close.
  • All this being said, your presentation—or what I call your face-to-face performance skills—is the primary skill set necessary to successfully close the deal.
