All You Have to Do Is ASK!!

When it comes to sales your customers quite literally have all the answers. Have you ever answered a question with a question? Would that be making a difference to your conversion rate? The answer to the latter is most definitely yes! Asking questions not only increases your conversion rate, but builds rapport with your customer and ensures that the sale becomes their idea and not yours. It’s all about active listening, and with questions you are remaining in control of the conversation. Once you find yourself doing all the talking you are no longer in control. Just remember that person asking the questions sets the direction for the conversation. If the customer is dominating the conversation by asking you questions make sure you answer the question with a question. However, try to vary the questions that you ask. And of course, don’t get crazy with it, know when to draw the line!

Questions can guide consumer interest, discover a need and give accurate information. There are two commonly known types of questioning-open ended and closed questions

Open-ended questions are an excellent way to ensure customer involvement in the conversation and are key to identifying not only what they need but a lot about themselves.

Examples are:
Who are you buying the product/service for?
How often would you use the product/service?
What features were you looking for in this product/service?

Closed questions tend to get one word answers- yes or no. They can be used to gather information quickly not unlike a check list, and can also be used when confirming a buying details and help confirm the sale.

Whatever way you pose them, pose questions and often and you’ll see great conversion rates. Got it?
