Ways to Overcome The Fear Of Selling
The term Selling,
can be a feared word, by all but the most successful
business owners. It seems that, even though we all
know we need to "sell" our products, many of us feel
scared and anxious about actually doing so.
Below are 5 tips to help you overcome your fear and
turn it into excitement.
1- Figure Out The
Fear- What is it that scares you? The fear of someone
not liking you or your products? The fear of sounding
way to pushy? Once, you figure what exactly scares
you, you can work on getting over it!
2- Address The
Issue- Take action to overcome the fear. This could
mean, sounding more natural when speaking to people,
rather than sounding like a boring book. Or, improving
your products to fit your customers needs and wants.
3- Show Your
enthusiasm- In order to productively sell a product,
you need to show your enthusiasm and passion for your
products and services. If you love the products you
offer, you are more than likely going to sell them
much better! Why? Because when you talk about them,
people will be able to tell that you enjoy them, not
just sell them. A perspective customer is more likely
to make a purchase of a new product is he or she feels
comfortable. If you would not use it or purchase it,
you might want to choose different products to sell.
4- Have Fun-
approaching this from a heavy "have to", perspective
find a fun, interesting way to share your knowledge or
passion. Think about what you would consider fun!
Like any other skill, "selling" gets easier
the more you do it. So get out, start small, and
practice, practice, practice!!! Remember, Practice
