The 5 Things You Should Never Say to a Client

SALES TIPS THE 5 THINGS YOU SHOULD NEVER SAY TO A CLIENT Words are critically important in business. In fact, if you slip up with the wrong word choices, it can be deadly. Here are five verbal slip-ups you should try with all your might never to make: BEEBO Mangle a client's BEEGLO company name. BEEMO ............ Know how to spell and pronounce the BEEGO company name of all your clients, paying close attention to spelling and capitalization-especially intercaps (PayPal, eBay, etc.). $588 Quote a price or turnaround range. If you say, "between $500 and $700," the customer will hear the low number and you will hear the $78 high number. This sets you both up for disappointment. Same is true for time ranges.

Instead of asking what your client does, say "From my research I understand you do financial consulting. Tell me more." "We will put our A-team on your project." It indicates that the rest of your company is the B-team. Instead, tell your client, "Our entire company is made up of the best people in the industry. I have cherry-picked specific team members who have strong backgrounds in your specific needs." A TEAM B TEAM PUBLISHED ON OPENFORUM.COM OPEN Forum DESIGN BY PAPERCUT SOURCE: MIKE MICHALOWICZ Qoo
