• Why do you buy elsewhere?
• What stops you buying more from us?
• What do you look for from a Distributor?
• Why do you use us?

• How could we help you improve that?

The above questions will help you both; try using one or two of them on your next visits. You will find they open so many doors for you to get closer to your customers – why is this? Simple you’re talking about their business – not yours..

Think…Help your customers get what they want and as a result you will often get what you want

2. Increase your sales activity – Visit & call more customers!!

Simple but so effective –“ if your want to increase your success rate then double your failure rate.” (think about it)

3. Train them

Plug the leaks, where do they miss or lose opportunities? Create an internal champion. 

4. Be different – Top & Tail your visits

See the 'top man' when you first arrive, explain the purpose of the call, see the staff you need to and then take 5 mins to explain to the 'top man' what you’ve done/agreed etc. This will help you in many customers and differentiate you from your competitors.

5. Improve your own skills

“If you always do what you’ve always done – you’ll always get what you always got” So if you’re using the same approaches and techniques you have been using the chances are you will get the same results”, Improve your skills by 10% - what could happen?
