Are you struggling to sell your product or service? Or, are you selling, but not meeting your sales goals?
If so, you may be making one or more common mistakes when understanding and selling to your target market.
Most businesses struggle with selling. The reason is that they do not understand their buyers and what motivates them to purchase. Also, most businesses have a too broad target market, which makes it difficult to focus on the right buyers with the right message.
The solution is to understand the different types of buyers and what motivates them. Then, you can create a sales strategy that targets those buyers.
There are five main types of buyers: rational, emotional, impulsive, skeptical, and price-sensitive. And each type of buyer requires a different approach to selling.
So, let us look at each type of buyer and how you need to adjust your sales technique.
1. Rational buyers
These are buyers who make their purchase decisions based on logic and reason. They want to know the facts and see proof that your product or service will deliver on its promises.
To sell to rational buyers, you need to be able to provide them with data and evidence that your product or service is the best solution for their needs. Do not try to sell on emotion or value. Instead, focus on the features and benefits of your product or service and how it will help them solve their specific problem.
2. Emotional buyers
These are the buyers who make their decisions based on how they feel. They want to purchase products or services that make them feel good about themselves.
To sell to emotional buyers, you need to focus on the emotional benefits of your product or service. For example, if you are selling a health and fitness program, you would focus on how your program will make them look and feel.
You also want to create a strong connection with the emotional buyer. Be personable and build rapport. Let them know that you understand their feelings and needs.
3. Impulsive buyers
These are buyers who make snap decisions based on impulse. They are often driven by a fear of missing out (FOMO) or just looking for a quick fix. And, as a result, they are often willing to pay more for a product or service.
To sell to impulsive buyers, you need to create a sense of urgency and make it easy for them to purchase your product or service. Offering a discount or special deal for a limited time can be helpful. For example, if you are selling a weight loss program, you might offer a limited-time discount or a free trial. You want to make it easy for them to say yes and take action.
4. Skeptical buyers
These buyers are very skeptical of everything they see, hear and read. They are often mistrustful of salespeople and always look for the catch. They also like to research before purchasing and are unafraid to ask tough questions.
To sell to skeptical buyers, you need to be honest and transparent. Do not try to hide anything or make false claims. Instead, focus on building trust and credibility.
The best way to do this is by providing social proof, such as testimonials, case studies, and reviews. You can also offer a money-back guarantee to further reduce the risk for the buyer.
5. Price-sensitive buyers
These are very price-conscious buyers. They always look for the best deal and are not afraid to compare shops because they want to save money.
To sell to price-sensitive buyers, you need to focus on the value of your product or service. Explain how your product or service differs from the competition and highlight the unique features and benefits that make it worth the price. You can do this by highlighting the features and benefits of your product or service. You can also show them how your product or service compares to the competition.
Remember that you often find buyers who fall into more than one of these categories. For example, a rational buyer may also be skeptical.
The key is to identify which type of buyer you are dealing with and adjust your sales approach accordingly. And, always remember that the best way to sell is by understanding your buyer and catering to their specific needs.
It may be a challenge, but you can successfully sell to any of these five types of buyers with the right strategies and tactics.
