How Is NLP Useful in Successful Selling?
If there is a group of people outside psychotherapy who know about NLP for Selling, it is salesmen. Since its inception in the late 70’s NLP rose to the attention of people in sales, as the direct applications have a major impact on sales results and therefore long term performance.
Curious? Well, high performing salespeople know NLP selling techniques intuitively. They know to stay when a client is really interested and walk away when they are not. Without realising this art of selling technique that they inherently have trained within them, they apply these confidently.
How does NLP help salespeople like this? By showing them in the form of formal models what they are doing and how they are doing it, so they are able to replicate the same over and over again. This makes them top performers. So an NLP for Selling course is for everyone!
This is why many organisations who bring in NLP, always start with their salesforce. Improving sales is at the heart of business generation and proves to clients that NLP does work.
Let’s have a look at some of these Selling techniques and how they impact sales:
This is just the tip of the iceberg as the best part about NLP in successful selling is that a team manager is able to train his team members once he has attended an NLP course.
It is also powerful because these selling techniques work with the unconscious mind and once integrated into your psyche and daily life, do not require any conscious intervention.
The difference between an organisation that has conducted NLP for selling courses and one that has not is hugely obvious. Once the level of employees’ awareness heightens there is no turning back.
The organisation stands to gain from deeper employee engagement which then leads to high levels of motivation and exponential growth in bottom line results.
I often say to clients “you are leaving money on the table when it could be in your profit and loss account” See the money spent as an investment rather than an expense for the results you achieve when more business comes through the door is multiple fold and the trend just continues.
