AI on key Elite Seller strategies – Part 8


When asked, the AI ChatGPT provided more details on each key strategy to become an Elite Seller. 


“#7 Develop strong negotiation skills and the ability to handle objections effectively: Being able to effectively negotiate and handle objections is a critical component of successful B2B sales. This includes being able to identify and address the root cause of objections, and finding mutually beneficial solutions.”


Insight From TheTechSeller: 


Here are two simple rules to consider about negotiations:


  1. You give some. They give some. It’s a win-win. This is negotiating in its simplest form. 


     2. You should care, but not that much. When you are too invested in pushing for a completion to the negotiations, you risk showing weakness. Being too anxious puts you in a stressful situation where you might be willing to give in to every demand. You must avoid this mindset.


The best objection is one you never get. The best method for handling sales objections is to prevent them from being raised in the first place. Objection prevention is more powerful than any response to an objection you can make. 


How do you avoid having customer objections jeopardize your sales efforts? 


  • Minimize the number of objections you will receive by asking great questions, building great customer relationships, and by presenting a solution that addresses your customer’s problem. 


  • Proactively address the potential objections before the customer raises them, then providing a solid response that positions your company and your solution favorably to diminish the potential objection. 


This requires advance preparation to understand what possible objections will likely be raised, and then to craft your best response to address each objection.
