Avoid This Sales Killer and Close More Deals
It may be hard to accept sometimes, but there’s always a reason for a prospect’s indecisiveness. What many won’t tell you is that a lot of times, the one thing holding back prospects is FEAR. Why is that? Well, think about it. Their decision can make or break a particular system at the company especially if they take a chance on an unfamiliar product. Who wants to explain that in a board meeting? Right. Let’s take a look at some other factors that can stop you from moving a sale along and what you need to do about each one.
The Prospect isn’t aware they have a problem
To fix a problem you have to be aware that it even exists! In some cases, prospects aren’t being ‘difficult’ or ‘playing hard to get’; sometimes there are genuine barriers they need to overcome whether they realize it or not. Ignorance just might be one of them, and that’s where you come in. By asking the right questions, and allowing them to speak, you will get a feel of how aware the prospect is and how to guide them into understanding that they do have an issue and how your product can help them with it.
The prospect is aware but doesn’t care
This one might be a bit trickier. What if your prospect is well aware of the issue but simply doesn’t care? How do you convince someone like that? It’s simple (maybe not ‘easy’) but simple. You show them the VALUE in using your product. To achieve this, simply outline the way your product can positively impact their company; whether it's reducing costs for a particular thing or streamlining a specific daily process, especially one that costs employees a lot of time. It’s one thing to not care about a product you aren’t fully aware of; it’s another thing to deny your company a chance to improve revenue or productivity.
The Prospect is in fact scared of using your product
Here’s the big one. The prospect knows your product can help them, and acknowledges that it’s the next big step they need to take. But they won’t do it; fear just cripples them. So, what do you do?
Tailor your presentation around things that reduce that fear. Maybe they’re iffy about the cost, so focus on payment plans and guarantees. Maybe they think employees will struggle with onboarding, show them how you streamline that process. Most importantly, outline the value they will get from your product. Understand the mindset of your prospect and build your presentation around it.

GAP Selling, A Must-Read
Typically, sales pros are told to read the same books over and over. We figured we’d throw something in there that wasn’t quite as popular as To Sell is Human but still ranked high among sellers. Gap Selling turns “sales order takers into sales influencers”. It’s interesting as the author, Keenan, chooses to share his own methodology in this book, instead of repeating the ones from the 20th century. His style is pretty out there but, you know, in a good way.
Some readers have complained about wanting more tools included, and that the work becomes repetitive. But everyone agrees it’s an invaluable resource.
So, happy reading!
