Welcome objections
Remember that objections may
allow you to answer the prospect’s
concern(s)
Realize your product or solution
may not be for everyone
 If it is not for a particular
customer, thank him and
politely leave
 If it would benefit the customer,
politely, professionally, and
ethically, show how the product
could be useful
Handling objections truthfully
shows you provide ethical service
in order to build true relationships

11-4


Welcome Objections!





Accept objections as a challenge.
People do not want to be taken
advantage of.
Learn to overcome objections – do
not fear.

opinion

Once Again! What Are Objections?


Opposition or Resistance to:
Information
 The salesperson’s request


11-15


Six Major Categories of Objections
1. The hidden objection
2. The stalling objection (“I’ll think it over…”)
3. The no-need objection (“…but I’m not interested
now.”)
4. The money objection
5. The product objection
6. The source objection

11-16


Six Major Categories of Objections
1. The hidden objection – prospect who asks trivial,
unimportant questions or conceals his feelings
beneath a veil of silence




Salesperson must ask questions and carefully listen
in order to smoke out prospect’s real objections
Smoke out hidden objections – ask questions,
observe, “read between the lines” – prospect may not
know what the objections are; as last resort,
salesperson may have to ask what objections are

11-17


Six Major Categories of Objections
Hidden objections, cont…

Consider the following questions:




What would it take to convince you?
What causes you to say that?
Tell me, what’s really on your mind?

11-18


Six Major Categories of Objections
2. The stalling objection – prospect says, “I’ll think it
over,” or “I’ll be ready to buy on your next visit,”
must determine if truth or smokescreen designed
to get rid of you – common tactic




One of toughest to overcome arises when selling a
new consumer product
Buyer says she has to get approval from someone
else. Buyer’s attitude toward product will influence
buying decision – make it positive

11-19


Six Major Categories of Objections
2. The stalling objection, cont…







Let buyer know you are on her side and help her with
her objections. If she does not respond give her
multiple choice question to display genuine attitude of
caring
Do not get demanding, defensive, or hostile
Goal is to help prospect realistically examine reasons
for and against buying now
Main idea is not to be satisfied with false objection or
stall. Bring out any or all main selling benefits and
KOS

11-20


Six Major Categories of Objections
3. The no-need objection – prospect says, “…but
I’m not interested now,” and he stays as he
presently is




This is widely used because it gets rid of the
salesperson
It is tricky because it also includes a hidden objection
or a stall

11-21


Six Major Categories of Objections
4. The money objection – encompasses several
forms of economic excuses and is simple for the
buyer to say




Respond by saying that it is risky to discuss price until
it can be compared to product’s benefits. Once you
convey product’s benefits, price becomes secondary
factor which usually can be dealt with successfully
Quote price and go right on selling

11-22


Six Major Categories of Objections
5. The product objection




Not everyone likes the best selling product
Your reaction must be positive
You can use guarantee, testimonial, independent
research results, or a demonstration

11-24


Six Major Categories of Objections
6. The source objection




Some prospects say they are happy with their current
supplier
Try to find out exactly what bothers prospect and call
on her routinely over a long period of time

11-25


Six Major Categories of Objections




Salespeople often encounter the same objections
from customer to customer.
After a sales call, ask yourself:
What were the objections?
 How did I handle them?
 How should I handle them next time?




Be prepared for the same objection to arise again!
