Issue #37: 5 Ways to Crush Sales Objections

Before you became the awesome Boss Babe that you are today, can you recall ever listening to a bad sales call?
 
You know what I'm talking about...that call where no matter what you said to the person, it seemed as if they just talked over you, bullied you, sounded scripted when you tried to share why you didn't/couldn't move forward with the offer and basically they made you feel like, "just another sales call" and when it finally ended you felt as if you'd just chatted with an icky weirdo from the Twilight Zone?
 
Eewww, right?!
 
Trust me sista, it happens to everybody and yes, it was icky and weird.
 
And sadly, some female entrepreneurs relate that personal experience to what they believe sales calls should look like....and this is how they end up sucking at them, hating them and loosing potential leads (money.)
 
Don't stress out to much sista, I'm here to tell you that you don't have to hate sales calls! I want to show you how to LOVE sales objections.
 
I know what you're thinking; how can you love sales objections? The answer is simple, I address most of my clients sales objections waaay before we actually meet...let me elaborate.
 
I absolutely love nurturing my potential clients and by the time I get to meet with them in person; I've already given so much value that most people are sitting at least at a 98% close rate- even before the sales conversation takes place.  So when I actually get to chat with them in person (that's if I meet..sometimes, I don't) -I can almost guarantee I will get paid at the end of the conversation.
 
I get really lit up seeing my calendar fully booked, because I know that means I get to have a sales call where I address all of my potential clients fears (objections), give them solutions, confidently address ever objection they have and I want you to feel the same.
 
But the first step to become super confident with sales objections is by going back to the icky weirdo experience you had and understanding how not to be that guy.  I want better for you, this is why today I'm giving you these free tips I learned from the absolute worst sales call run I'd ever had in my life 🥺
 
I had literally bombed 15 sales calls back to back in a span of about 2 weeks. I heard the same sales objections over and over gain and a few I never heard of before...I freak-n cried so hard at the end of this one call that it was that really super ugly cry where you can't breath and snot runs out your nose- embarrassing!
 
Do you know how a "NO, NOT RIGHT NOW" makes to a Boss Babe's soul...it crushes you!
I felt defeated, like a failure and my self-esteem went down the tubes. The coach I had at the time bless his heart; tried everything from meditation, coaching, supporting, scripts , praying and everything in between to help me. But, I  just couldn't get over the sales slump.
 
Well, not until I finally figured out what had to be done differently.
 
When I figured this out, I vowed to share what I learned with as many female entrepreneurs as I could.
 
Here's what I realized. If I start my sales conversation in the marketing- prior to the phone call or face-to-face...the closing rate was higher. So, I started to incorporate 5 simple strategies not just on my sales calls but everywhere like my website, social media, emails, etc. and guess what...Ba Bam🥳It worked!! After I implemented the tips below I was able to bring private clients paying me $1800-2500/Month for private coaching.
 
These are what I believe were the 5 reasons why I bombed on those 15 sales calls back in the day,  what you can learn from those experiences and how to apply these lessons immediately to crush sales objections you're dealing with right now.
  1. Story: “Well, here we go." I didn't believe in the story I was selling. The words were coming out of my mouth, but the passion wasn't in my heart. You have to have a fully committed mindset you will succeed; not weighed down with reasons why it needs to work. So when someone hit me with a sales objections; I was too focused on my script and doubt about selling the offer - which transposed into doubt about my abilities, being able to pay bills, paying my coach, pleasing the client, etc. what I recommend for you to do is to "Not" focus on your personal shortcomings; but instead focus on just telling (not selling) the story. You do this by connecting your personal story to the offers' outcome. Learn to tell your story in a way that shows the lead how the offer helps others to live their best life. #totalgamechanger #itsoktotellmystory
  2. Money: “I can’t afford to buy that right now.” This is probably the #1 sales objections ladies hear the most; especially now during the pandemic. Instead of focusing on the offer price and the features in your sales conversations; put more attention on the benefits of your offer and the value it will provide your clients. That's how you turn your lead into a paid customer.
  3. Quality: “So-n-So sells the same thing; what makes you different.” If quality is the issue, you can crush this sales objection by including some of your favorite testimonials on your website or sales page so they can see someone other than you saying your offer is the best thing since sliced bread. Also in this area, I'd recommend crushing this sales objection by doing what I do...describe your client transformation journey in a casual way #fasttrackclientbuyin

  4. Trust: “I don't know you, how can I trust you this will work?” If people have issues trusting your brand, you could showcase your experience and expertise on your website, in emails, blogs, etc. And if you're like me and have a ton of awards and recognitions (not boasting- just facts lol) you could link back to your social media profiles which will also increase your subscriber and follower counts.

  5. Flyers: “I’ll try this freebie, that freebie and maybe that freebie and then I'll buy it.” These are your time wasters, can be the most challenging to convert and thus, you have to learn when to say enough is enough. This is when I would recommend for you to create a sales funnel process that allows your potential client to get a snack bite taste of your offer before trying, nurtures them and gently allows them to move along to finally buy an offer or kick rocks (the reality is know your worth!! You don't need to beg for a sale; there's 8 billion people on the planet someone will buy from you.) #byefelicia

Here's another really super juicy carrot to remember- it's all in their minds.

Believe it or note, most leads already had a 15 min prep talk with themselves prior to meeting with you- just to practice saying NO to you.
