Book Description

7 April 1998 For Dummies
Without the close, there is no sale. Pretty obvious, right? Yet, for many salespeople, closing is the most baffling and elusive part of the selling process. All too often, salespeople meet qualified clients and charm them with an eloquent presentation, only to see the sale mysteriously slip from between their fingers in the end. Which is sad when you consider all the hard work – the prospecting, preparation, planning, and practice – done for the sake of a moment of truth that never arrives. Fortunately, closing is an art that can be mastered, and now Sales Closing For Dummies shows you how. Packed with powerful principles that can help you become a top–producing salesperson, Sales Closing For Dummies is the ultimate guide to mastering that most mysterious part of the selling equation. Tom Hopkins, the legendary sales genius who, by age 30 was the nation’s leading real–estate trainer, demystifies closing and shows what it takes to be a champion closer, including how to: Lead a sale without being pushy Read the signs of an interested potential buyer Use questioning methods that close sales, time and again Help clients feel good about their buying decisions Keep your clients’ business and build their loyalty Build long–term relationships and watch your sales grow With the help of dozens of real–life examples from a wide cross section of industries, Tom shows why professional selling is about communication, not coercion. And he shares his considerable insight and experience on: Verbal and visual buying cues and how to recognize them Choosing the best location for closing Addressing concerns and creating a sense of urgency Time–tested tactics and strategies for ending customer procrastination, overcoming their fear, closing from a distance, and more The ten biggest closing mistakes and how to avoid them Add–on selling and other ways of getting your clients to help you to build your business Featuring Tom’s Hopkins’ trademark “Red Flag” key points and situation scripts, this fun, easy–to–understand guide arms you with the hands–on tools and techniques you’ll need to become a world–class closer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sales closing for dummies says it all 28 Jun 2010
The hardest part of the sale is actually asking for it (closing). This book covers exactly that. It gives you the when, why and how of actually making the sale. Without this skill you might just as well give up selling as a career. The 'Dummies' series of books have become one of the publishing worlds 'teach yourself' leaders and for me it's one of, if not, the best. Stuffed full of tips and do's and dont's to give you the confidence and more importantly the knowledge to know when, and how to actually ask for the sale. A book for both the beginner and the pro and good to dip into any time. Over 250 pages of pure gold which will put a smile on your face, a spring in your step and money in your pocket. A great and very easy read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Old school sales closing! 9 Jan 2010
Like sitting an elderley couple down until 1AM and "coercing" them into buying a 10K conservatory Tom Hopkins is of the old school of selling!

Dont take this as a bad point some of his techniques border on manipulative (as indeed do a lot of the great sales books) but they are extremely effective especially if you take the time to listen to some of his Audio.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book at a great price 10 Oct 2011
This book is definitely worth investing in for all types of sales people. Not all tips and tricks apply for every sales person, but no matter what one will learn a lot from going through the book - as well as get a good laugh once in a while, even of how simple it can actually be to be a great closer!
