HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY, APRIL6, 2012 3 SBDC Never sell anything again, and watch your busieness soar-Advice from an expert By BARRY MOLT-7, Speaker, Consultant, and Author I pity the small businesses that try to sell their products or services only through features and benefits. They think that hard sales tactics like cold calling or deep price discounting actually still work and are a solid way to build their business. They keep trying to sell to the same old pros- pects until they become so unre- sponsive that they are lost on how to find additional business. Sales. in the traditional sense, is dead. In fact, trying to sell to prospects only breaks down our confidence and makes us feel bad about our company. When a prospect says no to our product or service, we think they are saying no to us personally. We hate it. We feel the sting and it makes us reluctant to try it over and over again. I learned a long time ago that the formula for people buying is actually very simple. Customers buy when: 1. They are in pain. 2. They have the money to solve that pain. As a small business owner, the first task is to be able to de- scribe the pain that your com- pany solves and identify who has the money to solve that pain. In fact. this should be practiced as your "elevator speech." The next step is to forget the "S" word. Now learn the "R" word: relationships. Relation- ships are the key to growing your company and can bring sales to you almost effortlessly. This is .because we actually can't sell anything to anyone. We just need to be there when people are ready to buy. This is why consistent mar- keting is so important. You need to continually remind people what you do and how you help others. When they have a prob- lem you can solve (and the money to solve it), they will natu- rally buy from you. They may even know someone else that has the same pain and make a con- nection. Don't waste your time by chasing the people that long ago UPCOMING EVENTS Eloisa Carrion Flores Eloisa Carrion Flores, 79. a resident of Lordsburg, NM en- tered eternal rest Wednesday, March 28, 2012 at ,Gila Regional Medical Center. She was born July 6, 1932 in Lordsburg to Santos Mesa and Margarita (Garcia) Carrion. Eloisa also known as "Okie or Luchie" by all her friend's was a very dedicated mother to her children and also to others in need. She loved sports. including football, baseball and coaching. She was a coach/ player for "Las Indias" women's softball team for many years. She loved any football team that played against the Dallas Cow- boys. Sorry Cowboys fans. Her favorite baseball team was the Chicago Cubs and she actually got to personally meet her favor- ite player, Sammy Sosa. She was a true diehard Maverick fan and thoroughly enjoyed watching her kids/grandkidS play sports. Eloisa worked many years for the City of Lordsburg in various po- sitions including Iaborer. meter reader; but was known by all as the "Mesquito Lady". Some of her fondest memories by her chil- dren include: picnicking at the Eloisa Carrion Flores She enjoyed spending time with all her family and friends and out- doors working on her yard. Even though she was unable to walk she coUld always be seen in her power chair down Main Street to visit her daughter Elvia at nursing home with Ernest McComb in tow. Eloisa's re- quest was that We not shed tears for her. but that we throw a party and celebrate her life here with us be- cause as she al- ways said, "I'll be celebrating with Jesus in Heaven". She is sur- vived by five sons. Lawrence Flores and wife Debra of Tucson, AZ; Tomas Flores of Lordsburg; Davey Flores and wife Corrine of Lordsburg; Francisco Flores of Phoenix. AZ; Paul Flores of Lordsburg; two daughters, Josephina F. Corrales and hus- band Roman of Portales, NM; Elvia C. Flores of Lordsburg; one brother, Louie Rodriguez and wife Lupita of Riverside, CA; one sister, Dora Garcia of Redlands, CA; nineteen grandchildren: twenty-one great-grandchildren; eight great-great grandchildren; and numerous nieces and neph- ews.. She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Bias S. Flores ('83) and her parents. decided not to buy from you. These are the same people that have stopped returning your phone calls or e-mail inquiries months ago. Remember. every prospect needs to continually qualify themselves for it to be worth your time in the sales pro- cess. As a result, the onty way to grow your company over the long term is to keep investing in build- ing trusted relationships. This is done by implementing a system- atic method for "staying in touch" with people over a long period of time. Three simple methods for doing this are: 1. Use CRM software such as Sage ACT!, HighRise, Salesforce, or Goldmine to know when to periodically contact people (monthly or quarterly). Any simple reminder system that can capture information can be effective. 2. Consistently reachout to people through phone, e-mail or snail mail. This is done not by selling them anything, but by giving them something of value they can use in their business. This can be a person they should meet, a lead, a resource article or a helpful website. 3. Use social media to "Like" or "Retweet" their com- ments or content. They will think of you for an instant and remem- ber the value you bring. Vow never to sell again. Think building relationships. It works every time.
