Sales – it’s about Getting to No

Trying to sell something?

Well the answer’s no. Get used to it.

Stop looking for ‘yes’. It’s never yes. It’s always no.  If it  was yes then they’d already be your customer.

Your goal should be discover why it is no. Once you know why, you can work to overcome the objection. Maybe it’s price (it’s never price), credibility, risk, timing, authority, budget. You are dead in the water if you don’t know why.

If you go in looking for yes, then the best case is you find out that it’s not a ‘yes’. The worst case is you don’t even get that and the prospect stays in your pipeline like a ship becalmed. Your job is to force the issue, to question, to probe and to discover why they won’t do business with you NOW

Totally agree! It’s never price. If you are unable to help your customer to discover accurately the pain they have and how to relief that pain with your solution (product or service) you will keep getting No’s
