Product Knowledge = Profit!

Product Knowledge = Profit!

Steven February 11th, 2015

sales successThey say that knowledge is power, but knowledge also means profit. Put simply, if your agents are experts regarding the products you are selling, it will lead to increased sales for your organization.
Customers like to know that the staff they are buying products or services from know their stuff. If they don’t intimately know how a product or service works, it can make it difficult to sell it to a customer, which in turn will lead to lost profits. Effectively selling your products and services is a simple process that has many benefits in addition to increasing sales.

Strong Communication Skills

If your agents have a strong knowledge of your products or services, it will allow them to adjust their approach for each individual customer. No two customers are alike, so the approach your agents use shouldn’t be, either.

Enthusiasm is Infectious

This is probably one of the easiest and most effective ways your agents can effectively sell your offerings. If a customer hears that your agent is knowledgeable about your products and services, it will go a long way towards making a sale. But if they show a sense of enthusiasm as well, that will make it easier to seal the deal. Showing excitement also helps to remove any uncertainty the customer may have about making the purchase.

Agent Confidence = Customer Confidence

If your customer doesn’t feel that your agent has confidence in the product, it can lead to a missed sale. Having knowledge of a product will give your agents confidence in describing what it can offer your customers.

Overcome Objections

A lot of the time, any issues a customer may have comes from an agent having inadequate knowledge. However, if your agent knows the product inside and out, they can easily address any concern the customer may have. It also helps to be aware of the pros and cons of your competitors’ products and services while explaining the advantages of yours over theirs.

Gaining Product Knowledge

Make sure your agents thoroughly read any literature related to your goods and services. Also include role-playing about any possible questions customers may have as part of their training.

Providing testimonials can go a long way to inspiring confidence as well. Social media such as Twitter offers the option of embedding content; for example, embedding positive tweets can help inspire confidence. Also be sure to favourite or “like” any positive tweets and feedback on your social media pages.

Training should include how the products are made, their value, and how they can be used. And if they can be used with other products as well, this can also help your staff to make a sale.

What Your Agents Need to Know

If your products and services include different pricing structures, your agents must be knowledgeable about this and the different available sizes, colours, etc. Knowledge can take time to accumulate, but as your agents gain more confidence, they will make more sales.
