5 Important Questions Salespeople Need to Ask

Performing sales is more of a skill than a science.

Although a common trait amongst good sales people is being organised, a sales person who has the ability to recognise when to set their organised plan aside to follow an unexpected conversational turn understands the small nuances in a dialogue between a prospect and how to conduct himself.

Small off-topic conversations can be enlightening and a great way to build rapport. Although tempting, you should never entirely abandon your organised list of questions, rather consider which are the questions that absolutely need to be asked.

There's a raft of questions any sales person can ask a prospect, but we believe that less is more. This is evidence as most people are only able to remember 7 items or less.

To assist with the narrowing of questions a sales person should always ask (in order of importance) are:

  1. Who will sign off on this?
  2. Create an influence map. - "what does your company's decision-making process look like?"
  3. Can I show you?
  4. Ask for permission - start with, "What would a successful outcome look like for you?
