The Most Important Sales Techniques to Improve Your Performance

While the impact of sales methods on a salesperson's day-to-day life is different for everyone, it's important that all sales teams have them available in their "toolbox", and that they can adapt them according to need and situation.

For example, visual management is a great way to simplify your learning of sales techniques.

Here are 4 of the sales methods already covered in this "Sales Methods" Quiz template:

  • AIDA (Attention, Interest, Desire, Action): This sequential method helps salespeople capture the prospect's attention, arouse his or her interest, transform that interest into a desire to buy, and finally motivate the customer to take concrete action.
  • BATNA (Best Alternative to a Negotiated Agreement): This is a powerful concept in negotiation. It helps sales teams understand and identify the best alternatives in negotiations to optimize their results.
  • DISC (Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, Conscientiousness): This predictive behavior model is based on four personality profiles of prospects, and helps sales teams adapt their sales strategies accordingly. 
  • SPIN (Situation, Problem, Implication, Need-payoff): This technique involves questioning the prospect along four specific axes to identify his or her needs precisely: context, problem, role of a potential solution, and expected benefit.

If you would like to add other methods that you use in your team, you can of course adapt the content of your Quiz to present only those sales techniques that are relevant in your case.
