Successful sales people are made !!! And not born. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>YOUR SERVICE TO CUSTOMERS </li></ul><ul><li>Repeat orders are assured by good services. We do not only sell products alone, we sell products together with solutions with services.

  14. 14. 5 Basics Steps to Successful Selling Step 1 PLANNING Every successful sales-person learns how to plan and work on their plan. It is essential to success as driving or talking. Think of PLANNING in terms of building a house. Before a house is erected , an architect or engineer spends a good deal of time in advance planning the size and shape of the house. No one would hire a contractor to start building the house. Instead , an architect is hired to PLAN out the structure. He developed the blueprints so that the contractor can proceed to build by following the blueprints. To be successful with MEC , each sales-person must develop a blueprint for their SALES TERRITORY . They can then proceed to build by PLANS.
  15. 15. EYEBALLING <ul><li>Before the sales-person begin his actual sales call, he must PLAN where </li></ul><ul><li>he will be working on. His trainer or manager normally will allocate an </li></ul><ul><li>AREA for him to do his sales calls. He will be given an area which will </li></ul><ul><li>be known his TERRITORY . </li></ul><ul><li>Sometimes the trainer/manager will allocate some specific accounts for </li></ul><ul><li>him to build. </li></ul><ul><li>From the TERRITORY given to you by your trainer/manager , you will </li></ul><ul><li>go to the specific part of your area to write down all available companies </li></ul><ul><li>name you think you can approach them during your sales calls. Write </li></ul><ul><li>down about 100 potential customers in your prospect lists so that you can </li></ul><ul><li>call on them first. </li></ul><ul><li>This process is what we call EYEBALLING for potential customers in your area. </li></ul>
  16. 16. After you have done that, the next thing is to find out the telephone numbers of this companies you have eyeballed. You can do this by means of the telephone directories . <ul><ul><li>QUALIYING </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>After you have noted down all the telephone numbers of the potential </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Customers in your prospect lists. The next step is to find out the </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Correct person by means of the TELEPHONE CALL PLAN. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Use the TELEPHONE CALL PLAN effectively every time want to </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Make an appointment for new accounts. Once you have qualify the </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Actual person you want to meet, make sure you record the </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Appointment time and name of the person you are going to meet on </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The prospect lists you have earlier prepared. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It is vitally IMPORTANT TO QUALITY THE CORRECT PERSON </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>WHO HAS THE AUTHORITY TO BUY or at least can strongly </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Recommend your products to his superior or Purchasing officer. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>ALWAYS REMEMBER “ DO NOT SELL WHILE QUALIFYING </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>THROUGH THE TELEPHONE ” </li></ul></ul>
  17. 17. STEP 2 INTRODUCTION <ul><li>After you have make an appointment to meet your prospect at a specific </li></ul><ul><li>time or you are in your territory without an appointment, you would like </li></ul><ul><li>to make a cold call ( a walk-in sales call without an appointment). </li></ul><ul><li>You have to make a pre-plan before you meet your prospect. </li></ul><ul><li>Make sure you have all the followings check :- </li></ul><ul><li>Name Cards </li></ul><ul><li>Advertising souvenirs </li></ul><ul><li>Sales kit in order </li></ul><ul><li>A sure fire product to show him </li></ul><ul><li>Presentation and order pad ready </li></ul>
  18. 18. Once, you have done that, you can now proceed to meet your prospect. As for cold-calls, you can ask who is in-charge by asking the first person you meet as you enter the factory . <ul><li>Upon meeting your prospect, always remember, he will </li></ul><ul><li>always have 3 things on his mind when he sees you. </li></ul><ul><li>Who are you ? </li></ul><ul><li>Where are you from ? </li></ul><ul><li>What are you here for ? </li></ul>
  19. 19. This is where INTRODUCTION comes in . Good morning.afternoon, Mr. Prospect. ( shake his hand firmly and look at his eyes as you shake his hands) My name is …………….from MEC ( or your company name ) This is my name card ( Hand name card to him with both hands ) By the way, Mr. Prospect, I have a small souvenir for you from our company. This is a key chain with our Company’s name on it and I’m sure you can put all your valuables keys in it and clip on your pants. I would like you to have it. ( Use both hands to present him the souvenir) Mr. Prospect, today I have a NEW CONCEPT in maintenance welding products and I would like to show them to you. Can we proceed to some place convenient, like your workshop so that I can show you more about it ? (pick-up your sales-kit and pretend to walk to the nearest door, this will lead your prospect to follow you ) Always remember, make sure that your Prospect is comfortable before you proceed to the nest step – PRESENTATION.
  20. 20. Step 3 Presentation <ul><li>When your Prospect is ready for your discussion, proceed by placing your </li></ul><ul><li>Presentation Book in front of him and say : </li></ul><ul><li>“ Mr. Prospect, Eutectic is an International Company which formulates </li></ul><ul><li>high quality products specially designed for the Maintenance repair and </li></ul><ul><li>Production for well over 100 years in the USA, European, African , </li></ul><ul><li>Middle East and Asia Pacific markets. </li></ul><ul><li>EUTECTIC offers a wide range of quality products which include ARC </li></ul><ul><li>WELDING, BRAZING & SOLDERING, TIG & MIG WELDING & </li></ul><ul><li>THERMAL SPRAY PROCESS . </li></ul><ul><li>Well, Mr. Prospect, today I have a FANTASTIC product which I like to show </li></ul><ul><li>you. This is what we called “ Eutectic Xuper 680CGS AC-DC “ (Turn to your product page </li></ul><ul><li>of 680CGS and read to your prospect . </li></ul><ul><li>After you have done that , tell your prospect :- </li></ul>
  21. 21. <ul><li>Mr. Prospect, I have a few 680CGS electrodes with me in my bag, lets go </li></ul><ul><li>Lets go to your workshop so that I can show you a simple demonstration </li></ul><ul><li>of how easy it is to use Eutectic 680CGS. (Close your Presentation </li></ul><ul><li>Book and pick up your bag and proceed to walk to the door) </li></ul><ul><li>Always remember, that while walking to the workshop with your </li></ul><ul><li>Prospect, keep talking to him as you walk together, never let your </li></ul><ul><li>Prospect walk by himself alone. Make him feel that you are a friendly </li></ul><ul><li>Person, ask him question like :- </li></ul><ul><li>“ Mr.Prospect, how many maintenance men do you have ? “ </li></ul><ul><li>“ Do they work on shift “ ? </li></ul><ul><li>Or ask him what kind of Metals do he or his welders face most of the time </li></ul><ul><li>Or do they do any Cast-Iron repair welding here ? </li></ul><ul><li>This are some of the topics you can discuss as you walk along with him to the </li></ul><ul><li>workshop. </li></ul>
  22. 22. Step 4 Demonstration <ul><li>Demonstration is a very important part of a sales call , you can tell your Prospect </li></ul><ul><li>All the wonderful things about the product you have introduced to him, yet it is </li></ul><ul><li>no good. Your prospect must see it to believe what you have just said and if he </li></ul><ul><li>say good, then it is good enough for him to buy. </li></ul><ul><li>When you and your Prospect have arrived at the welding bay, ask him if he could </li></ul><ul><li>Spare you a welder so that he can try them under your instructions. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Mr.Prospect, maybe you would like one of your welder to join us as your welder </li></ul><ul><li>will be the one using them later on. If your welder cannot tell you his opinion </li></ul><ul><li>about EUTECTIC 680CGS, who else then ?? Ha ! Ha! ( Chuckle ) </li></ul><ul><li>When the welder is asked to join you, introduce yourself to him by shaking his </li></ul><ul><li>hand and ask him his name. Present him with a souvenir. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Hello, my name is ……….. From MEC ( your company name ) and by the way you are ? </li></ul><ul><li>(welder tell you his name ) </li></ul>
  23. 23. <ul><li>“ Oh Mr. Welder , here is a key chain with our Company name & Logo on it and </li></ul><ul><li>I like you to have it.” </li></ul><ul><li>Mr. Welder, I have just introduced a fantastic product called EUTECTIC 680CGS </li></ul><ul><li>SUPER STRENGTH, HIGH CRACK RESISTANCE ELECTRODE to </li></ul><ul><li>Mr.Prospect and I would like you to assist me with this simple demonstration on </li></ul><ul><li>how easy it is to use them. I may need a MILD STEEL angle bar about 5” long, a </li></ul><ul><li>used Flat Bastard file, Hammer and hack-saw.. Thank you. ( go with him to select </li></ul><ul><li>the angle bar and bastard file , talk to him as you do that ) </li></ul><ul><li>Once you have got all the required things, you can begin to show them the Demo. </li></ul><ul><li>Take out the 680CGS from your bag, if possible always use the 3.20mm or </li></ul><ul><li>4.00mm Dia. For your standard demo. When you are about to begin demo, always </li></ul><ul><li>face your Prospect, do not leave him behind as he is the person to put his signature on your </li></ul><ul><li>order pad. </li></ul>
  24. 24. <ul><li>“ Well gentlemen, What I have here is EUTECTIC 680CGS Super Strength </li></ul><ul><li>electrode for all alloy steels , with high crack resistance. This is a 4.0mm dia. </li></ul><ul><li>electrode and Mr. Welder can you please adjust your machine to 4.00mm dia. </li></ul><ul><li>(welder adjust the welding machine) . Thank you Mr. Welder. </li></ul><ul><li>Now gentlemen. We are going to weld a piece of file ( High Carbon Steel ) to a </li></ul><ul><li>mild steel angle bar. Mr. Welder can you please tack weld for me this two end. </li></ul><ul><li>(Welder tack the weld both end) Thank you Mr. Welder. </li></ul><ul><li>Now in adverse maintenance condition, sometimes you do not have time to clean </li></ul><ul><li>The metals you are going to weld, so I will put some oil and even dirt to simulate </li></ul><ul><li>an actual maintenance conditions. Now Mr.Welder, can you please weld for me </li></ul><ul><li>45 deg by 45 deg all the way through ( Welder do the welding ) </li></ul>
  25. 25. ALWAYS REMEMBER, WHEN THE WELDER IS WELDING, GIVE HIM COMPLIMENTS ON HIS WELDING. TELL YOUR PROSPECT THAT HE HAVE A GOOD WELDER. ASK THE WELDER ISN’T IT EASY TO WELD. <ul><li>When you compliment the welder and also by giving him a souvenir, the welder </li></ul><ul><li>tends to be on your side, he will normally agree with you whatever you say </li></ul><ul><li>during the demonstration. Ask him how he felt about our 680CGS , he will say </li></ul><ul><li>good and with more tactful compliments and souvenirs, he will ask your prospect </li></ul><ul><li>to buy Eutectic 680CGS. He is your friend now and he knows that when you </li></ul><ul><li>come the next time, you may bring something for him. </li></ul><ul><li>After he does the welding, use a plier to bring the welded parts to the work vice. </li></ul><ul><li>Clamp the angle bar on the vice correctly and tell the Prospect and welder together </li></ul><ul><li>“ Well , gentlemen, what you have seen just now is a piece of file which is a </li></ul><ul><li>High Carbon Steel welded to a piece of mild steel angle bar. Now, through your </li></ul><ul><li>experience, if a piece of high carbon steel is welded, definitely it will crack, right? </li></ul><ul><li>Now, gentlemen, take a look at this welded piece of file. See, not even a hair-line </li></ul><ul><li>Crack! </li></ul><ul><li>Now, lets see how much strength it needs to break this weld. </li></ul><ul><li>Gentlemen, normally when we want a fair test on the weld, which side do we knock? </li></ul>
  26. 26. <ul><li>Here right ? ( point against the welded side ). If we knock against this side ( point </li></ul><ul><li>Against the side that is not welded) What is going to happen ? ( Use your hands </li></ul><ul><li>to signal that it will fly off , then the answer from them is fly off ). </li></ul><ul><li>Very Good ! Then we will try to knocking this side and see how much strength do </li></ul><ul><li>we need to break this weld ? </li></ul><ul><li>Use the hammer and start knocking on the file a few times, using reasonable hard </li></ul><ul><li>knock. Stop after a few blows and tell your prospect and welder. “Well , </li></ul><ul><li>gentlemen, if you would weld a piece of metal through oil, the weld will </li></ul><ul><li>definitely be very hard , right ? Now lets see whether this weld is hard or not . </li></ul><ul><li>Can I have a hack-saw ? ( Saw the weld and say : Its just as soft as butter , maybe </li></ul><ul><li>You would like to try it, Mr. Prospect ? Okay, gentlemen, this is to say that </li></ul><ul><li>680CGS is machinable, it can be use to repair your worn-out shaft and many more. </li></ul>
  27. 27. STEP 5 CLOSING <ul><li>After all successful demonstrations, always say this : </li></ul><ul><li>“ Isn’t it a fantastic product, Mr. Prospect ?

  38. 38. COMMON CAUSES FOR OBJECTIONS <ul><li>Customer objections are a normal part of the sales process. The salesman should </li></ul><ul><li>expect them and be prepared to handle them. Objections will vary depending upon </li></ul><ul><li>the particular buyer. Frequent underlying causes are :- </li></ul><ul><li>The buyer lacks trust in the company or the salesman </li></ul><ul><li>The buyer has a natural resistance to change in his purchasing habits </li></ul><ul><li>The buyer does not have required financial capacity to make purchase </li></ul><ul><li>The buyer does not need the product or service </li></ul><ul><li>The buyer needs more information or fails to recognize his needs </li></ul><ul><li>The buyer assigns a higher priority to the purchase of other products </li></ul><ul><li>Knowing the causes for objections will help the salesman to do a better job in </li></ul><ul><li>answering them. He should, therefore carefully analyze the reasons behind </li></ul><ul><li>objections before proceeding to answer them. </li></ul>
