It Starts With Great Service

Many people doubt the validity of getting referrals as an actual mix of their marketing download microsoft games. By accident, many people get referred by customers that love them. So let’s face it, referrals start by doing great service that people notice download free candy crush.

There is an important question that owners and sales manager’s in a successful contracting business ask themselves before engaging in training, coaching or accountability activities sims 4 children's clothes download.

Here is that question…

“Do I have the right person?”

The difference between mediocre and champion caliber sales managers lies in their willingness to ask this question of every employee, themselves included at any time herunterladen. The mediocre manager falls in love with the personality of the people they manage and assumes things will turn around eventually.

The winning manager never assumes that the person who they manage hasn’t changed to the point where they might not be a fit with the team any longer padlet app herunterladen. In essence they are asking if the employee is capable of performing the skills and techniques that make up their sales system. Furthermore, if they do have those skills are they willing to take action by using them with a potential buyer herunterladen? Continue reading “16 DNA Markers Of Top Performers”

“Where’s Jimmy?”

Ralph who is one of the senior techs working at an hvac, plumbing and electrical service business suddenly blurted out a question to his boss, “Hey Bill, where’s Jimmy compas? I haven’t seen him for a couple weeks now.”

Ralph was referring to one of the newer techs who joined the company about a year ago connectify me kostenlos herunterladen. “I think he’s on vacation, right Bill?” said Karen who is one of the CSR’s at the firm.

Making Sure the Customer Is Actually Right

BY: Julie Crisara

Legend has it that, at the turn of the 20th century, the Chicago department store magnate Marshall Field instructed his salespeople that the customer is always right download for mobile phone. Coincidentally, across the Atlantic, French hotelier César Ritz was telling his staff, “Le client n’a jamais tort”—“The customer is never wrong.”

So, for the last century, purveyors of products and services have grappled with the implications of these pronouncements that have become deeply ingrained in the consciousness of their customers minecraft for free. The problem is electrical contractors sometimes must decide when and how to tell the customer he or she is not necessarily exactly right.

“The customer is generally right about wanting to get an electrical project completed or a problem solved but probably not right about what information has to be exchanged and how the job should proceed,” said Joe Crisara, president of consulting firm ContractorSelling.com ältere office version herunterladen. “A given customer calls in an electrician perhaps once every five years or more, but an electrical contractor is handling 400 to 800 calls a year. So who is most likely to know the right way to make a sales call successful and get the project moving in the right direction?”

Service Mistake #29 – Wasting Your Customers Time

BY: Joe Crisara

We are using this as a caricature or “over-exaggeration” to point out some of the things that service techs do by accident kinofilme onlineen. They may not even realize they are doing them until seeing how obvious it is in the film.

Things such as not having a solutions ready before you begin telling people the problems they have are subtle things that many may not notice even when they watch herunterladen.

Other obvious things like allowing service techs to pick their own wardrobe or going out to the truck to figure things out can look like “amateur night” to the customer Download slideshare presentation. You don’t think techs talk on the cell phone about personal business like “canasta night?” Go to a job with a few installers and you will be shocked at the personal business being conducted during normal working hours pages kostenlos downloaden.

I do ride-a-longs and what I see is a fact of life and a day-to-day struggle to get techs to see how important it is to do good service. Maybe when they see what bad service looks like they will be sure not to commit these mistakes video bei facebook herunterladen iphone.

Selling The Brand Of You

Many times I asked at conferences about what brand of equipment I prefer gameboy advance spiele kostenlos deutsch. For me that is an easy question and one that I answer the same way every single time.I feel the absolute best brand is YOU the contractor.

Agreements Give Life

Maintenance or service agreements are the lifeblood of every hvac, plumbing or electrical service company that is in business today windows 10 version 1909 herunterladen.

Be a Student Of Buyers To Find “Right Code”

BY: Joe Crisara

What Is “On Code”

To me, the definition of selling is to provide a solution that is directly “on code” with solving a problem your customer has Christmas carols children. Basically if you provide solutions that are more like a laser beam than a shotgun, your buyer feels you know their situation better than your competitor and so they feel inclined to purchase from you herunterladen.

To find exactly what people need and want, you have to understand how they think. Most people in the service business are “out of balance” in this regard cisco packet tracer downloaden. What I mean is that 90% of the attention they spend is on diagnosing technical issues and not on diagnosing the family or people who live in the home spelling to.

Controlling Toxic Behavior

In this day and age of hundreds of TV channels to watch as well as internet videos, I have found a particular show that I run across every now and then führerschein lernen kostenlosen.

Using Fear As a Barometer

Using Fear as a Barometer

Fear can disable the best of us microsoft frontpage download deutsch kostenlos. Many times the fear we face in service and sales situations start to make us create assumptions that lead us to dysfunctional behaviors. Sometimes the fear begins with finding a huge problem that the customer didn’t expect on a typical call minecraft beta herunterladen. The problem is viewed as small or routine by the client but after you diagnose the whole system you find the problem is bigger than anyone anticipated recuva herunterladen. The fear that the client may think you are trying to sell them something they don’t need may paralyze some into covering up the problem instead of solving it adobe photoshop elements 7 download for free.

Indeed service or sales people who fear things like the economy, high prices, their ability to sell, close or handle objections usually blame the fear itself which stops them in their tracks, instead of trying to sculpt an effective response to it ios 10 download.
