Best modern techniques to sell during a pandemic

Businesses in general, and salespeople in specific, are dealing with a lot of uncertainty right now:

  • Unpredictability about working and selling remotely (maybe for the first time)
  • Unpredictability about generating new business
  • Unpredictability about approaching existing customers for renewals
  • Unpredictability about your sales strategies and tactics
  • With so many things out of your control. What can you do?

Also, the “vulnerability gap” exists between the awareness of threats and preparation to actually handle them.

You can do just one thing — make a plan that provides a framework to help you adapt, ease uncertainty, and encourage confidence.

Moreover, think of it this way. The “hard sell” is all about making your quarterly numbers no matter who gets screwed. The “relationship sell” is all about building a network of people who trust you to do the right thing.

When sales begin to decrease, organizations should not panic and alter a brand’s fundamental proposition.

The key areas of Sales lie in:

  • The fundamental goal of solving customer problems remains unchanged — however, sales reps techniques and timing will need to adapt
  • Reps must develop remote communication skills and a plan for every customer interaction
  • Your needs are not top of mind; cultivate sensitivity to the impact on customers’ businesses, initiatives, teams, and families

For sales leaders contemplating how to react, taking care of their people and customers must be a top priority. Also as they direct that reality, sales leaders must also adjust how their companies and competitors sell during such a pandemic period and accomplish the problem tackling techniques.

In many ways, the changes in customer behavior are an acceleration of digital trends that were in motion before the pandemic hit. We believe we are at a digital inflection point, where B2B sales operations going forward will look fundamentally different from what they were before the pandemic.

Tips for adapting sales strategy

  • Assess yourself
  • Recognize KPIs for your short-term goals.
  • Optimize your messaging
  • Expand your network

During the crisis, it’s more important than ever to remember that loyal customers are the primary, enduring source of cash flow and organic growth. Marketing should not be optional; it should be a priority for every organization,” so as to bring in revenues from the key customers and others.

Still, company budget cuts often affect marketing disproportionately. Marketing communication costs can be snipped faster than production costs and even highly prioritizing people.

By managing their marketing costs, however, organizations must also take care to differentiate between the important and the wasteful. Creating and managing strong brands, ones that customers understand and trust is one of the best ways to lower down business risk.

Your strategic chances during the downturn will highly depend on which of the four chunks your core customers stay in and how they are classifying your products or services.

Basic Sales tactics that you can follow are;

  1. Listen Actively
  2. Clarify Problems
  3. Define Solutions
  4. Offer Creative Financing
  5. Flawlessly Follow

As your buyers adjust their businesses and goals to these new circumstances, you need to tailor your sales process and approach in a way that will help along the way.
