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.

It is said that one should pursue the career that he likes to do. He/she should not get into something that does not interest him. Selling is one such profession where the person if he/she likes the job he can really marvel in it and if he/she does not like what he/she is doing then it can turn out to be a sour experience for him.

This means that he continuously has to work on upgrading his knowledge pertaining to the product and at the same time increase his customer base. He should be equally good with his communication skill which will help him to convince people.

Search for a mentor:-

In order to make selling heavy equipment a little simpler, you should take help of a veteran who should guide you on how to pitch heavy equipment to people who deal with it day in and out. You can’t use the same old selling tricks on everybody because guys from the construction industry are very specific with their needs and they will not budge an inch from they need and what you have to offer them. They will go for the items that best suits their business and will not see whom they are buying it from. Though they have loyalties towards certain brands and may not want to change their brand but will not buy an alternative. The veteran who is in this industry for a long time knows how to react under various situations and will mentor you accordingly. Normally a heavy equipment manufacturing company manufactures all types of heavy equipment under the sun. It is just the factor of availability of the machine in the market. The mentor can guide you on how you can avail things that are rare and impress your customer.

Do not stay low for a long time:-

At times it is recommended that people should stay a bit low when things are not working for them. They should relax a bit and then hit back. For a heavy equipment salesperson the duration of staying low is very limited. He needs to be rolling for most of the time and for that he needs to gear up his energy after every unsuccessful sale, figure out the reason what went wrong and what he can do differently the next time. Growing your connection is quite important for a salesman and therefore you just can’t afford to stay low for a long time. Bad phases come and go but you need to make sure that you are there in the news.

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.

The Greatest Salesman in the World


New From: $4.49 USD In Stock

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.

What makes oneself a good heavy equipment sales person

Like not everybody is capable of becoming a doctor or an engineer. In the same way, not everybody can become a good sales person. It is true that we all need to sell some or the other thing in our lives but that does not make us a good salesman. In a nutshell, selling is considered to be the most difficult profession and not many can succeed in making it their career. Being a good sales person needs skill, needs confidence and needs all the ingredients that will make the other person realize that you are selling the right stuff to them. In case, if you are not confident on what you are selling, then they might hesitate to buy the most beneficial thing of their life.

Selling items of less value may not be so hard but if you are given to sell heavy construction equipment then you may find yourself in a tough spot. Heavy equipment are real expensive items and it is certainly not an easy task to sell it to construction companies. Moreover, when you are trying to sell the equipment to a person who uses heavy equipment of some other brand, it is very difficult to penetrate and steer their thoughts to buy your product. They may be very loyal to their brand and may not feel comfortable to switch to some other brand. You may have to know yours as well as his products really well so that you can first make a comparison at your end and understand what extra you can offer him which he may not get from his brand. Providing discounts may not always work because people look for quality in machines. They may not want to have any discounts and will certainly not be ready to compromise on the quality of the machine.

Learn the in and out of the product:-

It is very important to know the in and out of the machine you are trying to sell. You can’t sell something that you are not sure about. While you are in the sales business, you may come across people who are experts in construction equipment and may give you a valuable suggestion about the product. Therefore, knowing about the product will give you the scope to counter them and possibly may sell the item to them.

Know your competitors well:-

Remember, you are not the only person selling heavy equipment and therefore you will have to face good number of competition from other players. It is imperative to know your competitors before you start pitching in for your product. Having no knowledge about your competitor’s product would be dangerous as it may tarnish your reputation as a salesman. People will find that you do not update yourself with the recent happenings in the world of heavy equipment.

Understand the needs of the customer:-

Please do not try to sell the customer something that he never wanted to have. You should first understand his requirement and then come up with a product. In this way, you will not only make a sale but will also earn respect for yourself.

Follow the basics to sell heavy equipment

We often have the notion that in order to become a good seller, one need to be ultra-smart and should have the confidence that he can sell anything to anybody. Well, this notion is completely wrong. You can’t sell anything to anybody as long as the person does not see any need for that product. You can’t catch hold of anybody by his throat and compel him to by your product. That is just not the way how one can become a good seller.

Selling heavy equipment can become more difficult if you believe the notion of “anything can be sold to anybody”. You can’t step out to sell a crawler to a guy who works in a bank working as a home loan officer. It might even happen that he will pitch his home loan products and you may go for it. Simultaneously, if you try and push a guy to buy the machine, even if he has the need for it, he will not buy it from you. People usually dislike salesman who are pushy and prefer to buy stuffs from guys who will give them proper suggestion rather than pushing them hard to buy the equipment.

It is very crucial that you follow the basics of salesmanship and you will not find it a tough job. The skill to sell a product is equally important but even if you just stick to the basics, you may see that things are gradually falling place and in no time you will start hitting good sales figure. Let us discuss the basics of salesmanship and what one should know in order to become a master in selling heavy equipment.

Knowing your product well:-

You can sell something only when you are confident that whatever you are pitching to the prospect makes sense to him and for that you got to keep your product knowledge sharp and your communication concise. Do not over say anything as that may get you into unnecessary trouble and definitely do not say anything that you are not sure about. You try to take your prospect on a ride will only result in him taking you on a ride. Try to gain as much knowledge you can about the machines you are dealing with. Knowing the features should be sufficient if you are newly appointed by your company but as you stay in for a longer period try to learn the technical aspects as well. Experiences will always tech you more on how you can deal with different kinds of clients.

Understanding your prospects wants will fetch you a sale:-

You do not have to try anything harder to make a sale. The only requirement is you need to understand his needs. If possible take a tour of the equipment that he procures so that you make your ground strong and also buy the time to understand the areas where the prospect needs help. Most of the time, the prospect does not know what he is lacking and he will be really grateful to you if you bring him anywhere closer to that realization and eventually ending it up by buying the product.

 

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.
