brokers do...


Spin selling overview

SPIN Selling Overview

  • SPIN Selling demonstrates how to conduct major-sale transactions.

  • There is a difference between selling small-ticket items and big-tickets items.

    • The difference is that small-ticket items are sold on the spot

    • big-ticket items require many sales calls over a prolonged cycle.


Pss compared to spin

PSS Compared to Spin

  • Xerox’s Professional Selling Skills training is excellent background for sales in general.

    • It looks for on-the-spot decision making.

  • SPIN Selling prepares the sales professional for engaging in long-term sales relationship.

    • It seeks to create a sales ally who internalizes what the broker is proposing,

    • makes it his own and

    • enables him to sell the proposal in the interval between sales calls.


Relationship creates understanding

Relationship Creates Understanding

  • Basically, SPIN Selling is the process of building a relationship with the client…

    • The client grows to trust the broker.

    • The client understands the solution proposed by the broker to solve the client’s problem.

  • This element of understanding is critical because it allows the client to internalize the value of the proposed solution.

    • The client is helped to arrive at the solution himself with the guidance of the broker over the sales cycle.


Key concept advance

Key concept: Advance

  • Each sales call must achieve the objective set by the broker before the sales call.

  • The immediate objective will not usually be the signing of a proposal to buy or lease.

  • The objective will be to move one more step closer to long-term goal, to “advance” the process toward the ultimate objective.

  • The broker must determine what “advance” she expects to achieve with each sales call.


Career counseling

Career Counseling

  • If the broker understands this process, then a cause of career frustration can be eliminated.

  • The big-ticket sales process will not permit a sale to close quickly.

    • The process will require multiple sales calls.

    • The broker’s job is to make each call advance toward the objective and to accomplish the goal in as few sales calls as possible.

    • The broker must know what the ultimate objective is and how each sales call contributes to achieving the objective.


The long view

The Long View

  • The objective of SPIN Selling is to accomplish a long-term objective

    • not to “close” an immediate sale, as contemplated by Xerox’s Professional Selling Skills

    • The salesperson’s objective is determined in advance

    • The entire cycle seeks to validate the proposed solution

  • SPIN Selling requires patience and maturity, while PSS requires enthusiasm and aggressiveness.


Preparation is crucial

Preparation is crucial

  • The importance of preparation cannot be understated.

    • The broker must work backwards in preparing for each sales call so that each meeting advances towards the objective.

    • He must think through how each sales call will lead the client ultimately to trust the broker and accept the proposed solution.

    • He must build client-confidence by demonstrating his competence in each meeting.


Climb into the trenches

Climb into the Trenches

  • If the broker does his or her job well…

    • the client will climb into the trench next to the broker

    • the client will fight side by side with the broker to accomplish the proposed objective.

  • The client will climb into the trench because the broker’s proposed solution solves the client’s problems.

  • The process of SPIN Selling has helped…

    • the client to understand the value of the proposed solution as being in the client’s best interest

    • the broker achieve the ultimate objective of collecting the commission.

Obtaining Commitment

Preliminaries

1. Preliminaries

  • Warm-up events at the start of the call.

  • There is no one best way to open a sales call.

  • Successful brokers rarely open two calls in the same way.

  • Be careful of the time-worn practice of commenting on client’s personal interests.

Obtaining Commitment

Preliminaries

1. Preliminaries

  • Since large-ticket sale involves multiple sales calls, the importance of preliminaries is minimized.

  • The purpose of preliminaries is to have the client agree that it is legitimate for you to ask questions.

  • In order to do this you must establish:

    • Who you are.

    • Why you are there.

    • Your right to ask questions.

Preliminaries

1. Preliminaries

  • Don’t worry about appearing smooth and polished.

    • Some of the best salespeople appear nervous, self-conscious or hesitant in the early minutes of a call.

  • The prime stages of preliminaries are the following:

    • Get down to business quickly.

    • Don’t talk too soon about solutions.

    • Concentrate on questions.

    • Probes client problems, difficulties or dissatisfactions.

    • Not very powerful in major-sale situations.

  • Implication Questions

    • Probes the consequences or effects of the problems.

    • Major-sale situations contain a high level of these questions.

    • Crucial element of SPIN Selling process.

    • Increases the client’s perception of value in the solution you offer.

  • Need-payoff Questions

    • Probes the value, usefulness or utility that the client perceives in a solution.

    • Strongly linked to success in major-sale situations.

Preliminaries

2. Investigating

  • Before the call, write down at least three potential problems of the client.

    • Then write down examples of actual questions about these potential problems.

    • Then write down implication questions to uncover implied problems embedded in the preliminary problems uncovered.

  • The purpose of questions is to undercover implied needs and to develop them into explicit needs.

The central purpose of

is to identify a problem

that the buyer perceives to be small

and build it up into a problem

large enough to justify action.

3. Demonstrating Capability

  • Showing that you have something worthwhile to offer.

    • Make Benefits showing how you meet Explicit Needs that have been expressed.

  • A Benefit is a statement that shows how your solution can help the client.

    • Benefits decline in value as the size of the transaction escalates.

  • The most effective Benefit shows your solution meets an Explicit Need.

Preliminaries

3. Demonstrating Capability

  • The cost of the solution must outweigh the seriousness of the problem.

    • this emphasizes the important of questioning in the investigating stage.

  • Make sure that the solutions proposed are in relation to explicit needs so that the solution has greater impact with the client.

    • The cost and hassle to implement the solution must be counter-balanced by the value the seller has created through the use of implication and need payoff questions.

  • Which is better…

    • to implement Objection Prevention

    • or to be skilled in Objection Handling?

  • If you can build the value of your solutions, then you are much less likely to face objections.

  • The solution lies in better “needs development” rather than in “objection handling.”
