Authentic & sell well & negotiate: Build trust & relationships through pictures & stories

Already last week, our small series was about how to be authentic, but at the same time to the wishes of its customers. What can help: Storytelling.

Best of HR – Berufebilder.de®

Trust thanks to pictures and stories

How exactly this works with building trust through storytelling, I would now like to show again with an example. Because clear is: With disinterest or egoism one does not arouse trust and does not sell anything.

In a seminar, two extremely different participants faced each other in a practical exercise: one - the salesman - was highly motivated, powerful and inspiring; the other participant who was to play the customer was objective, calm and concerned with information. He spoke rather quietly and was a reserved person.

Pursuit instead of coming together

Fortunately, these two gentlemen separated a table. Because the salesman sprayed with energy and enthusiasm about his actions, that he - half-sitting, half over the table bent - the customer more and more accommodating.

His counterpart, with his chair, inevitably moved farther and farther backwards and began to tilt lightly against the wall (you know that from your school days.) He was watching him.

What is missing: adaptability

You can imagine that our seller has not been commissioned in this scene. Although he was really a very lively and enthusiastic guy, he had, contrary to the expectation of all other participants of the seminar, also paid attention to his counterpart. Later on in the feedback discussion, he stated that he had noticed the backward movement of his customer.

But he could not implement this observation: The necessary adaptability was lacking! He had tried to ans with his very own way Objective without taking a single step towards the customer.

Less is more

Here a little restraint would have been appropriate, a little more flexibility. With a little lower volume, for example, and with a slightly lower power level, the seller would have had more success.

Of course, if you're a quiet seller as a seller, it doesn't do much SenseYou probably won't be able to keep up with the pace of a very lively customer either. However, with a little "courage to take the gap" you can increase your speed a bit to move on a comparable level with your customer.

Trust through visual language

Another important aspect of adaptability is your language of product and price argumentation: It should convince the customers of you and your product and build confidence.

You can do this if you speak clearly and unambiguously (yes, dear customer, the product is just right for you because ...), formulate more positively than negatively (not: “We can't do it.”, But: “We can do it on ... “) and use pictorial language. The customer can feel better this way imaginewhat will happen once he has your product in his hands.

Enclose yourself as a whole personality

In this way you can also clarify complicated relationships and give the customer the last incentive to buy that he still needed. When an entrepreneur confronted an advertiser for a large newspaper with the objection “With the abundance of advertisements, ours is drowning”, he replied: “If you place the advertisement with us as I have offered you, it will attract attention like a lush green tree in the desert. "

As a complete personality you can be part of your sales talk: bring the humorous and the serious part with you, the loud, the soft, the strong, and why not the weak part. If you are reasonably authentic, attentive and responsive to your customers, you will soon be closer to your sales target: a loyal customer who is happy to buy from you regularly.

    To give only a brief answer to your question:
    Since we are our interlocutor on the phone and in EmailIf you do not see s, but only hear or even read, it is all the more important to actively listen and, in the case of an email, to actively "read", means to read between the lines.
    Lots and very formulated (Please forgive :-)): Ask questions, keep the door and listen. Find out how your customer really ticks what drives him.

    Best regards,
    Lars Schäfer
