On average, out of every ten people who are interested in your product, only one will actually buy it. Therefore, you need to be able to cast a wide enough net to attract so many customers that you can still generate a profit out of that 1/10 ratio.
Prospecting is all about creating a funnel in which you can get enough customers to achieve a profit.
- Calling 100 people to talk to 10 in order to convert that 1.
- This process involves a lot of rejection, but remember that every “no” is one step closer to that one “yes.”
Negative sales attitude
- You don’t know how to discover someone’s need.
- You don’t actually believe in your product or service.
Once you can identify what people need and you can offer a solution to fulfill that, you will have a much more positive sales experience.
