How To Get More Sales Without Being Salesy

Updated: Mar 10, 2021

In any kind of business or any part of life, at some point, we have to make a sale.

I saw this the other day and just LOVED it: "you dad had to close your mom or you wouldn't be here." It definitely made me laugh out loud and do a double take and realize... Yep!

So if you ever say you're not in sales... you may want to rethink that.

I mean I am selling my kids something on an hourly basis as a Mom.

  • Eat your vegetables

  • Brush your teeth

  • Let's get dressed for the day

  • Time to clean up

Basically anything that kids don't really want to do, we have sell them the idea that this is what they want to do.

But here's the thing, even in these situations, they still get to choose to do what I am asking or not to do. It's my job to make what I am asking my kids to do irresistible or something they really need to do to, for example, avoid any unpleasantries like time-out.

While you don't want to threaten your potential client, buyer, or prospect with a "time-out," you do want to figure out their problems, their pain points, and help them realize that what you have may be a solution for their problems.

So let's dive in to some tips about making more sales without being or feeling salesy.

1) Treat those you talk to as human beings

Now this may seem like a bit of a no-brainer, but it needs to be discussed.

If you start a conversation with someone thinking of them as a lead or a prospect to buy your product or service, it affects how you talk to them.

Instead start the conversation with the knowledge that this is a human being in pain, that has a problem and may just need someone to talk to.

By changing your thoughts from just talking to a lead or prospect, you now are detached to whether they will buy your product or service or not.

Now you are talking to them, listening to them, and connecting with them.

With everything going on in the world, it is rather hard to have the real connection, especially with a mask on.

I want you to really think about why you are starting a conversation with someone, in person or online.
