Who wouldn’t jump at the opportunity to double your sales? Even the best of the best could always use a few more dollars in their pocket.

Nothing happens without hard work, but to double your sales is very possible.

What it takes is some know-how surrounding the sales game; a little bit of human psychology, and just the right amount of effort to have you sales sheets exploding.

 

Double Your Sales Tip #1: Value Yourself And Your Clients

People are attracted to success.

They flock to it for the potential that some of the success will rub off on them.

Use this idea to your advantage. Start targeting high-value clients, while also charging more for your own services (if that’s included in your job).

You’re likely to attract more and more high-value clients after you’ve landed the first.

Obviously, if so and so bought their product from you, you must be the person who can make things happen. After all, so and so never settles for anything less than the best.

As a bonus, these clients also open doors for new referrals.

 

#2: Exclusive Events

If you’re going to attract the best clients, you’ll need to speak their language.

“Wooing” the big client isn’t just a sales cliche.

People enjoy being catered to, and love exclusive invitations to events.

If your company doesn’t host sales events, throw one yourself.

It might take some effort, but you can’t pitch sales to the big guns without putting in the hard work first.

With any luck, word of your events will spread and people will strive to secure an invitation.

#3: Dress To Impress 

High-value clients want to see someone put together. A salesperson who can dress for the occasion.

Take the time to put together your outfit, regardless of how casual the event. People respect those who dress well.

There’s some science behind this tip.

Attractive people are likely to earn more money over their careers than their less attractive peers.

If you make an effort you’ll earn respect, and your clothes can help accentuate your natural looks.

 

#4: Make Follow Up Calls

You’ve heard it over and over; make your follow up calls.

Show people you’re interested.

End sales calls or meetings by setting a date for your follow call/meeting.

This breaks the ice for further contact.

Some salespeople are nervous of coming off as “too pushy.”

While that’s possible, sporadic or scheduled follow-ups are always a good idea.

What if the client simply forgets to call?

#5 Social Media Isn’t Just For Fun

Seven in 10 Americans use social media to connect with other people.

That’s 224 million people.  

There’s a good chance that you, and many of your clients, actively use social media in your personal life.

So why not your professional life?  Research says only 1 in 4 salespeople knows how to use social media to sell online.

Start yourself a professional Facebook page and start gathering friends. You’ll probably “friend” more than double your current clients soon after creating your account.

 

#6 Build Your Reputation

We’re not talking about your reputation of having the best clients.

Or the reputation of closing large sales.

Don’t get us wrong, both of those are important. But this is about building your reputation as a trustworthy person.

Your clients need to know that you’re upstanding and trustworthy.

It’s important to show your clients that you’re willing to place their needs above your own.

Honesty and integrity spreads. Clients whose trust you’ve earned are likely to recommend you to their friends and colleagues.

 

#7 Gather Those Leads

Building a large list of potential clients is crucial to long-term sales success. Where else are you going to find new leads?

Take a page out of the digital marketer’s playbook and create a website landing page that collects emails.

Email marketing is a surprisingly powerful tool when it comes to generating new sales.

Email marketing campaigns to qualified lists see up to 66 percent conversion rates (emails sent vs. sales). That kind of outreach and sales potential will help double your sales.

#8 Learn To Take No For An Answer

Salespeople often hear the phrase, “never take no for an answer.”

You’ve almost assuredly heard it before.

The phrase is supposed to mean to give every sale your best shot. Do everything possible to entice the client.

However, this saying often gets taken far too literally.

The best way to come off as a pushy salesperson? Actually never take no for an answer. Just like your good reputation spreads, so does your bad one.

People will flock to the salesperson who gives them their much-needed space.

 

#9 Know Your Product

This might seem an obvious thing to state, though many salespeople don’t know the finer details of their product.

For instance, if you’re selling homes, you need to know the housing market in your town, the surrounding towns, and the entire state.

If cars are your thing, you better know the finer points of every engine on the lot.

There’s nothing worse than looking uneducated because the consumer knows more about the product than you do.  And that’s very easy in the internet age.

Selling people “a dream,” as it’s called, isn’t the goal. “Fluff” talk won’t win over many customers.

Hit the customer hard with intimate knowledge. You should know better than them if their purchase is smart.

If you want to double your sales, it takes hard work, determination, and a solid reputation. Stick to our 9 easy steps and you’ll double your sales in no time.
