Small Sales Selling Techniques
• The traditional selling techniques that most of us have been trained to use work best in small sales – a sale which can normally be completed in a single call and which involves a low dollar value. These selling techniques don’t work for major sales and in fact can hurt your success as the sales grow larger. Longer Selling Cycle - Whereas a simple low-value sale can often be completed in one call, a major sale may require many calls spread over a period of months. Building Value is Critical to Sales Success - As the size of the sale increases, successful salespeople build up the perceived value of their products or services. The building of perceived value is probably the single most important selling skill in larger sales. On-going Relationship – As the sales grows larger, the customer puts more emphasis on the salesperson as a factor in the decision. In a large sale, product and seller may become inseparable in the customer’s mind. The Risk of Mistake – Customer’s become more cautious as the decision size increases. Purchase price is one factor, but fear of making a public mistake may be even more important.

Preliminaries – These are the warming-up events that occur before the serious selling begins. This includes such things as the way you introduce yourself and how you begin the conversation.

The Evolution of Selling

...The Evolution of selling The essay titled “Evolution of Selling “is based upon how selling has developed with the various key changes back into the industrial revolution era that has had an huge impact upon and led to the ways and approaches of selling today and looks into the ancient and modern methods, techniques and attitudes of selling which altogether has contributed to its modernization. The age of selling has brought about many advancements and developments in the world of Marketing through the encouragement of improving technology and people’s hard working attitude towards it, although, the question that remains is how personal selling even started at the first place? For which, Williams et al. (2001) has said in one of his books, Sales Management, that a street peddler was the first person ever who made a door-to-door sale by collecting the produce from the local farmers and selling it to the townspeople. Selling today would never have been so convincing if door-to-door selling was never introduced in the market because without understanding the customer’s needs and wants in detail by discussing with them, the company wouldn’t know what satisfies a customer, what products for whom and how they should be made according to their needs. Salespeople who earned a living only by selling products did not happen to be many in numbers until the Industrial Revolution(mid 1700s) hit England as traders, merchants, and artisans used to fill in the selling function before this......

Spin Zone- Fact or Fiction

...Kelly Burack English 101 Professor: Mr. Flood 26 March 2013 Spin Zone – Fact or Fiction The media, both print and broadcast, do not always report fairly. Often instead of reporting the news, the media has a way of creating the news. Of course television and print are all profitable based on ratings and sales. Sometimes if need be, they can misconstrue certain topics to ensure they hold their standing or even project to a certain audience. Although all media purports to give a fair and balanced portrayal of national events, it becomes obvious that Fox News and Patriot Radio stations can lean right, and NBC, CBS, et al can lean left. For example, when it comes to broadcast media and politics, Fox News reports heavily from a right wing stand point to entice their audience. As the saying goes, there are always two sides to every story. However, Fox News always seems to report from a one-sided point of view or even bend the truth. For instance, Lisa Daftari proclaimed on Fox News, “Detroit, Michigan is a large ex-pat community of Muslim-Americans and sleeper cells have been detected. You can Google this, you can find out all this information. So if you’re trying to set yourself apart the Qatari petro-dollars are backing this, you’re still developing in this area where the sleeper cells have been detected.” This information was later found to be untruthful and caused a lot of controversy for this station. MSNBC, a liberal television news station, also has been known to......

This spin-out will result in two publicly traded companies: Hewlett-Packard Enterprise, responsible for the storage, servers, software and security divisions and HP Inc., responsible for the PCs and printers divisions. The spin-out is expected to close by October 2015. In this memo we have: 1. Reviewed HPs past performance 2. Reviewed the rationale behind the spin-out 3. Conducted a SWOT-analysis, and 4. Concluded with our future outlook. 1. Review past performance Just as many other entrepreneurs, HP started because the founders discovered something. They wanted to see a market arise from the possibility of substituting an already-existing product or service with something better, namely more stable oscillators for a better price. Providing their market with better quality products for a better price therefore became the new company's raison d'être. Over the last 80 years, the crucial key success factor that has made HP successful has been her ability to adapt to new circumstances. For example, after starting......

Spin Master Toys

...Spin Master Toys Case Study Final Exam IS 8100 Renu Ramnani Q1. What is the history of Spin Master toys? In April 1994, Spin Master business was founded by three university friends, Anton Rabie, Ronen Harary and Ben Varadi, who were graduated from the University of Western Ontario. These three friends decided to find out an opportunity in the corporate world and made Early Bird, and in just six months company sold 1.5 million of them, which was a great hit during that time period. Early Bird was a nylon stocking filled with sawdust and grass seed mounded into head, and after its immersion in water, the grass seed was sprouted which gave a head a crop of grass hair. In 1995, the company launched Spin Master Devil Sticks, which was made up of two hand-held sticks and was used to control the third one. This product was also a great success for the company and later on, the company was named after it, that is Spin Master Toys. By this time, the company covered the major retail segments in North America and also believed that the reason behind their success was avant-garde, grass root marketing savvy and a two tier distribution network. Also, for the following three years, the company produced products for the Canadian market with the use of very low technology and high margin toys. Spin Master never reached to the same success ratio as the Earth Buddy's sales. Later on, Spin Master mainly focused to build relationships with their retailers and investors and create......

As Alex Perez, which of the two potential suppliers would you choose? Why? 3. Discuss an implementation plan for your decision.  Summary Spin Master Toys of Toronto, Ontario, a company who had been successful in creating fad items was about to roll out a new line of airplanes that were going to be powered by electricity called E-Chargers. With a delivery date to the retailers of December 7, 1999, they were now trying to decide from which supplier to purchase the design and production of this rollout. They had investigated a number of suppliers and managed to narrowed it down to two, Wah Shing and Wai Lung. They had to make a choice quickly. Analysis Evolution Anton Rabie, Ronnen Harary and Ben Varadi all graduated from The University of Western Ontario. Varadi and Rabie from the Ivey Business School and Harary from political Science. They all chose not to go into the corporate world and pursued their own dreams by creating successful fad items. Some of those items were Grow-Things, Earth Buddy, Radical Reptiles and many more. In 1996 Spin Master rolled out its Air Hogs line of compressed-air-powered planes which they manufactured in China. Before they decided to do it, it took them time to digest the idea, they thought it was too ambitious. After their success with Air Hogs, they......

The environment was risk environment when introducing the product and moving it operations because during these decision owners knew through their alternative, they didn’t have much idea about their alternative but knew outcome could be a problem or successful alternative. 2. As a result of Success of Spin Masters, certain decision errors and taps might be a problem for the company’s future. First Error being Heuristics where limited information, time and energy from people may cause managers to make simple decision which needed non programmed decisions, such as product can be launched at wrong time of the year, or Non useful marketing campaigns can be used to introduce a product into a market. Heuristics occur mainly because of limited information is available and instead of assessing the current situation the effort to invest in a product is made. Second Error or Trap could be Framing Error when problem is solved through the context perceived, context can be seen as negative or positive depending on the frame of the perceiver, Spin Master can fully frame error when he/she analyses sales haven’t picked up of a certain product not realising that a product’s availability or use is a concern initially effect could be positive but can be turned into negative or vice versa.

Spin Doctoring

...Week 4 Homework Spin Doctoring Which paths(s) to persuasion is/are present in the global warming case? Both paths can be present in this, or any case. The peripheral route could occur if people who are listing, watching or discussing the global warming case are conserved with cues, such as fear of the ice caps melting. This route can occur when people are induced by incidental cues, such as fear, or attractiveness, likeness to the listener, or desire, or any of the opposites (Myers, 08, pp 232-234). For example I may like the tone of voice of one president candidate while discussing the global warming issue, or I may like the others face, or I could be turned off by one of the two, If this helped make my decision then I went the peripheral route. On the other hand if I was more focused on the issues, or was actively involved and analytical of the issues then I would most likely follow the logical path, which is the Central Route. The Central Route occurs when interested people focus on the arguments and respond accordingly, this means I am less likely to be focused on the speaker’s attractiveness, or voice when making my decision (Myers, 08, pp 232-234). Thus the route I take, peripheral or central, is dependent upon my motivation or demotivation on the issues, global warming or otherwise. How does the tobacco industry example fit into our understanding of impression management? Impression management is all about controlling ones, or an......

Spin Doctoring and Propaganda

We will apply course concepts from Myers Chapter 7 (Persuasion) to the following case: Case. Spin doctoring is form of impression management that has been in the repertoire of public relations practitioners for four decades. The term refers to the tactic of shifting the focus off of the negative and harmful aspects of something by substituting another issue that has positive connotations. Spin doctors change the terms of public perception and debate using the mass media, which today includes blogs and social media like Facebook. Spin doctoring is an international phenomenon the serves the interests of organizations in every sector of society. The tobacco industry is considered to be the classic case of spin doctoring. After 1966 when the Surgeon General of the U.S. pronounced that cigarette packages must carry a health warning, the tobacco industry found a way to offset the damaging publicity by sponsoring sports and arts events and giving grants for community development. By de-emphasizing the dangers of smoking and emphasizing the positive contributions being made to community life, Big Tobacco trivialized the health problems and turned attention instead to its displays of corporate social responsibility. A contemporary example of spin......
