Closing the Sale

Helping Clients Succeed: Closing The Sale

The sales training program that makes salespeople close deals faster, with better margins and with more satisfied customers.

Increase the proportion and quality of won deals

Take the opportunities all the way

The third part of the award-winning sales program Helping customers succeed is called Closing The Sale. Here, salespeople train in the behaviors that are important to be really skilled at during the final phase of a deal. The result is that the deal close faster with better margins and more satisfied customers.

Only one in six sales presentations has a more than 50 percent chance of resulting in a sale. Salespeople, even experienced salespeople, lose opportunities for two main reasons:

  • Wrong focus. The seller presents to open the sale rather than close the deal. This means that the deal is lost before the sales presentation has even been held.
  • The sales presentation is rich in information but poor in decision-making. Meetings often end with the customer saying “thank you very much”, “we will think about this a bit” or “can you send us some of your PowerPoint photos?”. But no decisions are made.
