Customers Don't Know How To Buy - Or Do They?

Posted on March 11, 2009 at 3:31pm 0 Comments

A friend recently returned from the recent Sales 2.0 conference and told me of a complaint she heard several times from attendees: “Customers don’t know how to buy.”

This, said by sellers blaming buyers for not behaving as sellers would prefer. Or not responding appropriately to seller’s selling patterns.

Let me reverse the issue: Sellers do not respond appropriately to buyer’s buying patterns! Indeed, have they helped their customers:

How do you know you're listening to your clients in the most effective way?

Posted on February 4, 2009 at 3:00pm 0 Comments

Listening is circular, and ends with the originating speaker receiving a message they need to respond to. There is a speaker and a listener, a message maker and a message receiver. And without a Sender and a Receiver, there is no message. Indeed, the definition of a communication includes having a sender and a receiver.

* Your product is the same

* Your pitch/presentation is the same

* The buyer’s need is the same

What’s different is the decision making process the buyers need to go through. Do they have a problem that needs to be resolved now, and the economy has mitigated the types of solutions they seek? Do they have a problem that can be fixed with a… Continue

Would You Rather Sell? Or Have Someone Buy?

Posted on September 1, 2008 at 12:33pm 0 Comments

This will be my last essay. I have been writing these newsletters monthly newsletter/essays for the past 8 years. During that time I have spent upwards of 25 hours writing each one. I hope that you have enjoyed them and learned a bit about the differences between selling and the psychology of buy-in.

As my final essay, I’d like to get back to basics. It continues to surprise me that some of you have a hard time understanding how to ‘apply’ the basic beliefs and skills underlying… Continue

Hi Aimo: Nice job on the site. And I want to go live in that array of trailers! Where are they?
