Be Prepared And Find Your Internal Champ

Hi Champ!

There are a few things you need to do and consider to prepare for a face to face meeting:

  • Set clear goals for what you want to accomplish in the meeting.
  • Anticipate potential concerns from the client.
  • Check to make sure you are completely prepared by researching the prospect personally and professionally on social media and news sources.
  • Listen more than you talk. Prepare your questions beforehand.
  • Bring support staff with you.
  • Use and respect the clients’ format.
  • Always follow through.
  • Ask for what you need and seal the deal.
  • Simplify your prospects life.
  • Find ways to boost your credibility.
  • Build and nurture relationships.
  • Learn from “no” if you get one. Find out what didn’t work so you know how to change it for the next time.

 

These are all important things to do both before and during the sales process. With confidence behind your company and product you will catch that big fish.  As you move forward from first meetings to more in depth solution designs and value demonstration you will need to know when to transition to asking for the sale. The next step of the process is negotiation. This can seem a little intimidating but with a few tips and practice can become natural to you.

Here are some tips to help you negotiated successfully:

  1. Build a pricing strategy and stick with it.
  2. Prioritize what you plan to offer. This should include what really matters to you and what you are willing to give in on.
  3. Don’t give in too quickly.
  4. Negotiated with a person, not a “company”. Don’t let their answer be that they would like to, but can’t.
  5. Don’t sell yourself short.
  6. Mitigate your pricing. If you go too low you won’t be able to raise it back up and you need to make a profit.
  7. Don’t sacrifice quality for the deal.
  8. Your services should always count as costs.
  9. Boost margins with add-ons.
  10. Handle request for proposals with the utmost care and do not present a proposal unless you know you have all the information you need.

These are the ways you make sure that both parties are getting the best possible situation from the partnership. Once you start meeting or working together, it’s important to continue to build your relationship so that that representative becomes an ally for you. They are more likely to vouch for you and build on the partnership you have with their company.

We like to call this person an internal champion. They are champion for your company and can bring a stronger, brighter future to your company and their own. Here are the characteristics of a great champion:

  • They are respected by supervisors.
  • They are socially networked.
  • They think in the best interest of their company’s long run.
  • They are able to quickly navigate through the company to get things done.
  • They are willing to give credit to another person.
  • They share the same business philosophy, values and vision as you.

 

Now, that you know how to negotiate for what is best for both parties and build on relationships, we’re going to talk about how to use your fish’ power to the best of your benefit.
