 The 5 key takeaways for the Sales Champions

  1. Being always ready for the sale. It is important that you are adequately groomed for meeting the customers. This is especially so among men, where it is fashionable these days not to shave. If you are a smart groomed staff, then you have a better chance of making a sale, than your competitor who is not smartly groomed.
  2. You should invest your time and effort in increasing your Product knowledge. If you want to convince your customer to make the purchase.
  3. You are mostly alone at the time of making a sale. This means that there is hardly anybody, to help improve your selling skills on a day to day basis. A simple solution is to have a colleague join you, to ‘assist’ you at the time of sale and give feedback.
  4. Understanding the customer’s requirement is important. Spend time asking the right questions to the customer. This will only increase your chances of making the sale
  5. If you just try to push a product with out either understanding a customer’s needs, it is unlikely the customers will buy.

Each of the participants took away specific action plans to implement at the stores there after.
