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.

Heavy equipment salesman should give some importance to his/her personality

We have been hearing this famous saying since ages “First impression is the last impression”. Not sure how far this saying is correct but as far as the construction industry is concerned this saying matters a lot. Right from heavy equipment salesperson to the marketing guys who are promoting a construction company. These guys need to carry a pleasing personality and can never manage to look shoddy. There are few mannerisms as well which they are supposed to follow whenever they go out to meet a client.

The client will not entertain them knowing the name of the company they are coming from. The first thing that will catch the attention of the client is the personality of the salesman and the way he is able to carry himself. It matters a lot when you are part of a profession where you have to meet clients in person and talk about your products. Not every successful sale is done by convincing.

You may be a good communicator and can speak real well but at the end of the day if you are not at all presentable then your entire effort can go for a toss. There are few things that can make a good personality and one must consciously follow those things to ensure that they look good and presentable.

Looking presentable is important:-

Imagine if you are approached by a person who is not well shaved, his shirt tucked out and quite casual in his behavior and he tries to pitch a product to buy. The first thing that will come in your mind is “Is he representing his company or came here to meet his friend?” Well, this is what we all will think if we are approached by someone of this kind. We have certain expectation from salesman of reputed companies. They are in fact considered the first ambassador of any company.

You see them and make out the stature of the company. This is why being presentable is so important. It actually reflects the company that you are working for. If you are not presentable enough that will show your company in negative light and once the client has made an impression in his mind, it will then become very difficult for anybody to change that. No matter how good the company is in producing quality heavy equipment, he/she will still have his reservations. Just when he/she hears about your company, he/she will remember you. That kind of impression you will leave if you do not carry a pleasing personality.

You may lose sale:-

Losing a sale for a salesman selling heavy equipment is no less than losing a war. He/she has to spend lot of time and energy with a client to sell one heavy equipment and he/she just can’t let that go for a reason as lame as not having a pleasing personality. It hurts a lot for the guy who has spent so much of his effort on that sale. All you need to do is follow some basic rules like wearing ironed shirt and trouser and should be clean, clean shave and look like a professional.

Heavy equipment salesman should have little understanding of the construction business

A salesman selling a particular product should have little understanding about its utility and how it can be useful to the end user. He needs to do a study on the effectiveness of the product in the life of the consumers and once he does that selling the product will become quite simple for him. Though selling anything is a difficult business but as long as you understand the intricacies of a business and the efficacy of your product in that business you will be able to pitch it in the right way. Salesman who gives more attention knowing the product often end up getting frustrated because they probably know everything about the product they are selling but not much about its use to the ultimate user. This is perhaps not the right sign to start selling a commodity.

Salesmen who are into selling heavy equipment should keep in mind the need of the customer first and why they will want to buy the stuff they are selling. This is where the importance of knowing the construction business comes into picture. As long as you do not know the purpose for him to buy the machine you will be unable to pitch it correctly. You will then try to brag about the feature of the machine but little you know if that machine is at all needed by him in his business. You lose a client in this fashion and perhaps someone else who has a better knowledge about the industry will be able to sell it to him. You may only be left to wonder what went wrong with your approach and what the other salesman did to bag the sale.

You can learn about the construction business in the trainings that are held by your companies. They will speak about the business in particular and also which type of heavy equipment is required for what kind of job. Also you can pitch in products like bucket, attachments and other accessories. So it is not always that you have to sell the entire heavy equipment. Some construction business owners need to just upgrade their machine. Now you can’t ask them to get rid of the old one and buy a new one which has the upgraded feature. He will never want to do that and it will also not be a good salesmanship on your part.

What you can do is have a hearty talk with your client. Try to figure out his actual requirement and where you fit in. it is only after that that you can pitch a product to him. Please remember that if you sell the stuff that benefits the consumer he will more likely give you more business but if you sell him items that gives you good commission then you may sold him the machine for the last time. Never indulge in such mistakes. Short term gains should never be your goal and always pitch in products that are beneficial for the client.

Things that a heavy equipment salesman should stringently follow

Every profession has certain dos and don’ts which people in that profession should stringently follow. Similarly, a salesman selling heavy equipment also has to follow few codes of the profession to sustain and maintain a good conduct. He should simply never quit few those things from doing. There are no certain rules of selling heavy equipment but it definitely has some principles and ethics and a salesman is expected to follow them.

Never pitch the wrong product:-

You may think that heavy equipment is a complex subject and a person running a construction business will have no idea about the right product. Well, it is actually on the contrary. They may not know the technicalities of heavy equipment but they know for sure the type of construction machines needed in the business and they will never pick the wrong product. This is why it is important that you do not pitch in the wrong product to them or else you will unnecessarily taint yours and well as the reputation of the heavy equipment company. Do not take them for granted. You can try to find their requirements. Once you know that, you got to check the brand they have been using. In case if the person uses just one brand which unfortunately is not yours then you got to do a lot of work to persuade him to try a change. If he/she is not a brand conscious person it means he/she is looking for best and you got to display your machine as the best?

Provide him the best financial solution:-

The salesman in many occasions has associations with bank who lend money to construction companies and contractors to buy heavy equipment. They get a percentage as commission from the lenders for bringing every client to them. Now, the salesman in no way should pitch a financial solution that is not healthy for its client. He/she should understand the financial standing of his client and pitch him a lender who does not charge more towards closing costs and other miscellaneous expenses. The salesman does not stop selling heavy equipment after that sale and therefore he/she should remember that if he/she gives the client the right financial solution, he may get quite a number of references in return.

Do not try to be pushy:-

The salesman should try to establish a healthy relation with his/her clients. He/she does have targets to meet and he/she survives on commissions but they should not make him/her push his clients to buy heavy equipment. It could be possible that his/her client is interested in buying a machine but may want to wait for some time. In such a situation, the salesman should try to find the reason for him/her to wait and if he/she finds it reasonable then he/she should let it go. In no terms can he be pushy with his client. That will in fact drag him/her away and he/she may lose the client forever.

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.
