Tips to become best heavy equipment salesman

The job of a salesman is considered to be very demanding and challenging. He often has to go through a lot of hassles during sales call and eventually in the meeting. A salesman requires lot of patience. He can’t expect things to work like he wants. Many a time he will find situations going against him. This can lead to frustration and therefore a person who does not have patience can’t find his place in the sales sector for a long time. You be into any industry, if you have to deal with sales then you got to be patient. You can try hard to sell a product but while you do that you can’t lose your patience. This is what many salesmen fail to do. While they try so hard to sell the item, they go so deep into it that they do not realize that they are getting pushy with the customer. This irks the customer and they end up saying a big NO.

Salesman selling heavy equipment have to be very cautious while they are dealing with their customer. They can’t afford to haste things with them. You got to be very smooth with them. There are few tips that a salesman should keep into consideration while they are on a sales meeting.

Upgrade your communication skill:-

For some reason every salesman believes that he is a good communicator. If he can speak well it certainly does not mean he is good in communication. Selling heavy equipment is not all about good communication skills but it is more about effective communication where you speak sense to the prospect and can covert him into your customer. Just by speaking well you can’t convince a person to change his brand. People in the US are brand-conscious and they will not want to change their brand as long as there is a good strong reason to do so. The job of the salesman is to display that reason to them. People who are associated with heavy equipment are more conscious with the brand they are using than perhaps anybody else would be. Heavy equipment salesman should be knowledgeable, confident and that should reflect in their way of presenting themselves to the prospect.

Be in the company of technicians and operators:-

You get to learn a lot when you are in the company of technicians and heavy equipment operators. They can teach you a lot about heavy equipment. Though they will not be much helpful to you as far as the selling technique is concerned but they can really develop your base understanding on heavy equipment. This will help you to answer some of the most challenging questions that come from customers. Ideally, heavy equipment salesmen are not so savvy with the technical aspect of the machine but it always creates a good impression when you are able to answer those technical questions. You can always learn the techniques from your peers. They can help you in that area.

Best heavy equipment salesman knows customer’s needs

Salesmen are generally of two types. The first is the one who sells his/her products without even knowing if the customer really needs them. The do not bother much to know how essential the commodity is for them. They just try to create a need of product in the lives of the customers and sell the stuff. The other type of salesman believes in doing a bit of extra work and tries to know what the customer really wants. He/she spends more time with their client and asks him/her questions that are relevant for their sale. This type of salesman often try to get his act right by trying to know as much as possible about the business of the customer and the effectiveness of the product to him in his life and he then pitches the product accordingly. For him the features of the product are secondary. He/she first tries to analyze the reason why the customer would buy the product in the first place.

Giving big sales talk can often help you achieve your sales targets but that can’t go for long. At one point your sales talk will not help and eventually you will be forced to do one of the two things. You either have to give up your profession or start working like the type 2 salesmen. When it comes to selling heavy equipment to construction companies or to contractors, it is quite difficult task to do so by merely using sales talk. As long as you do not understand the business of the construction company, it will always be a problem to meet your sales target.

Every other construction company may have different requirements of heavy equipment and it quite essential to know these requirements first before you pitch the products to them. It may be possible that they do not need another machine but are looking for some kind of ancillary. In this situation no amount of sales talk will convince the customer from buying an additional machine. You have to sell them what they need and in this case they need an ancillary.

Most of the time, it has been observed that construction companies are confused with what they need. To put it in simple words, they are confused about upgrading their existing fleet of heavy equipment. Some people in the company may be of the opinion to upgrade the old machines by buying new ones while others may feel that doing such an activity will cost the company dearly. This is where the role of the salesman comes into picture. The salesman should conduct a thorough study of the customer’s business needs and check if he really needs to uplift his existing fleet. Here, the salesman has to know what kind of heavy equipment are needed by the company to carry on with its activities. He/she should guide them in the right way and not think about augmenting his sales figure just because he/she has an opportunity to do so. His/her efforts will be appreciated by the company and may be referred to others as well. This in turn will eventually turn him into the best salesman.

Never lose your heart after any unsuccessful sale

The thought of having an unsuccessful sale can leave you with a bitter heart and there are higher chances that you may feel de-motivated. Well, that is quite evident to happen but will that make you a better salesman in any fashion? The answer to this is a clear NO. Unsuccessful sale in no way should be taken negatively. It does come with a sad feeling but also with some lessons attached to it. You need to figure out what it is teaching you in particular. Why the sale has gone unsuccessful and what you did wrong that the prospect said No to you.

Once you have figured out the reasons you need to work on it and try it again the next time and try your best to give it the best shot. You may be unsuccessful for the first few times but not always. It is just that you need to realize where you have been doing wrong and once you have been able to figure that out work hard to get it corrected. It is just a matter of time that things will change for good and you will find yourself in a comfortable zone.

Heavy equipment salesmen have a real hard time selling machines. Heavy equipment are highly expensive commodity and not many can buy them as long as they do not see a very strong reason to buy. They should see a strong need to buy heavy equipment and this need should be first felt by the salesman. The construction business owner may be too busy operating his/her business and may not get enough time to sit and analyze the immediate requirement of his business. He/she will probably want someone to guide him/her in that way. You can prove to be a great asset to him/her if you can figure out his/her heavy equipment requirements. He/she will appreciate your effort that you have shown and will buy a couple of machines from you.

Not just the business requirements, at times a salesman also need to work on the financial standing of the company. If the company is financially sound and has ample of projects in hand, it means that they will not have much of an issue to finance the machines. But normally the case is different. You will encounter businesses that are financially crunched and if you can help them get a loan you can have just bag the deal for yourself.

This is where you should be paying the maximum focus on and not on getting de-motivated. Negative emotions should not have a place in your life. You can do wonders if you think right and have the self belief to conquer any challenge. A salesman in particular needs these qualities the most. Rest is nothing but strategizing your flow of work. Increase your client base by meeting as many people as you can and leave an impression on their minds. Not every sale can be a successful one but you can turn every meeting a successful one. That is entirely up to you.

What heavy equipment salesman could teach other salesman in different industry

Selling products of any brand can be difficult irrespective of how famous the brand is. The work of the salesman is to highlight the feature that matches with the requirement of the client and has to win his confidence that the product will last for long. Once the client is convinced with the quality of the product and how economically viable it is for him, he will go for it. But in the entire process of selling, every salesman gets to learn a lot of things out of every successful as well as unsuccessful sale. A salesman selling heavy equipment can teach a lot of things to salesman belonging to other industries. His selling techniques will be far more polished as he indulges in selling equipment that are quite expensive and people will buy those machines only if they see a dire need for it.

Intelligent selling:-

Selling is in itself an art but intelligent selling is a kind of a superior art which not many are able to master. Heavy equipment seller during his journey of selling different kinds of earth moving equipment has to choose their words carefully. They unlike salesman of different industry can’t keep on speaking to convince the client. Since they are dealing with a far more technical subject, speaking anything that is incorrect can back-fire them and they may lose the sale. Therefore they have to opt for intelligent selling where they are required to do a bit of research on the kind of work the client is into. He can pitch in his product as per the requirement of the client. This teaches salesman of other industry to follow the same pattern. Selling something just because you are given to sell it should not be your sole idea. Understanding the clients need should be the core focus area and then putting your products with his needs should be the next plan of action. If you are able to do that, selling becomes easy.

Do not be greedy after commissions:-

Salesman should not run after money. Though it means a lot to everybody but selling products that can earn them good commission should not be given preference. They can also earn commission by selling products that suit the needs of the client. Heavy equipment salesmen are required to develop a good rapport with their client and if they sell a machine with the intention of earning high commission, they may soon lose out on the client. This teaches others to follow suit and concentrate on developing a relationship with the client which will enable them to sell more products in the future and also get references of other clients.

Learn your product well before you start selling it:-

Heavy equipment salesmen are required to know their product in an out. They may not be able to capture the technicalities of the heavy equipment but are recommended to know as much as they can. This will help them to counter client’s tough questions and also win their confidence. Salesman of other industry should be open to learn as many things as they can about their product. This will help them to crack tough clients.

Beginning your career as heavy equipment salesman

The overall construction and heavy equipment industry are simultaneously booming in many parts of the world. Since the economies of many countries are inter-related so the current scenario suggests that this industry will only flourish from here and there are very limited chances of it taking a backseat. It is therefore quite advisable to become a part of these industries and prosper with it. One particular avenue that gives immense scope of growth is selling of heavy equipment to construction and mining industries. You can also concurrently reach guys who are into forestry and road construction as well as guys who are into agricultural domain. It makes a lot of sense to be a part of an industry that has the potential to provide you with everything that you have desired for.

A word of caution would be that selling heavy equipment is no joke and can be quite hectic if you are not a person who is good in sales or not confident about your product. You got to quite interactive if you select this as your profession. There are men who lack excellent communication skills and hence have a hard time to sell any piece of machine. Even a potential prospect turns him down and that can be really frustrating. Therefore, one should know his/her qualities well before making his/her way in this profile. However, for a person who has good communication skill need to learn a lot about the product before going for a meeting with the client.

Customers may come up with difficult questions:-

Even a salesman having an experience of over 20 years can have a difficult time with a customer while trying to sell particular heavy equipment. He may have loads of experience but may meet up a person who knows more than him about machines and it will not be a pleasant thing to say anything that may sound stupid. It is always possible that you may not know something that you are asked but letting the client know that you will come down with an answer is what he would expect rather than giving senseless talks. It may infuriate the client and he may also develop a negative impression of yours. Therefore you got to be ready to accept difficult questions and if you do not have an answer for that, take some time from him and do revert with one.

Switching companies too often can be risky:-

If you are a good salesman, promotions are quick to happen. However, that does not mean that you should then move to the next company who can pay you better. You should ideally stick to your current company and look for more opportunities of growing and if you feel that you have learnt everything that you can from that company, probably that should be the time of your movement. If you leave companies too often it will throw an impression that you are greedy for money and might prove to be not a trustworthy employee for the new company.

One of the important criteria is that the candidate should be ready to travel and he may have to stay out of station for months and could be even years. Though such candidates will be paid more than the others but they got to be tough and should not feel homesick. Getting such guys is real tough and therefore people who are approaching these companies for interviews should make up their mind in advance and also should be ready to move in case they are being asked to.

There are also certain prerequisites that these heavy equipment companies have from the aspirants. They want them to have some degree of knowledge in heavy equipment.

You may come across few companies that want their aspirants to even know about the technical aspect. If not in complete detail but definitely should have sound knowledge about what they are dealing with. For instance, if they are trying to sell a machine that is used to extract oil, then ideally companies prefer the salesperson to know the basics of the machine and in case if he manages to gather more information then he stands a fair chance to get quick promotion. So the knowledge he has about the subject can fetch him good results.

The construction companies out there want hi-tech machines that simply the job of the operator in many ways and also help to get the work done in a shorter time. Here the role of a knowledgeable salesman becomes quite essential. He will then not sell machines that are being asked to him to sell. He will rather try to understand the requirement of the client and pitch his products accordingly. This approach of his will be highly appreciated by the company and he will have a higher chance to sell more equipment. Overall, the year 2016 will be a good one for heavy equipment salesman.
