Retail selling should be an active process. Salespeople in stores don’t have to wait for the customer to buy something—they can increase sales and earn bigger commissions with some simple creative selling techniques. The result? The customer buys more items more frequently. The retail store environment makes a difference, too.
The retail salesperson can sell more by using creative selling methods to present product benefits, overcome objections, and close the sale, but they also face other challenges and opportunities. Determining customer needs is difficult when the customer can just walk away. Building a base of repeat business is tough when the customer initiates most transactions. The store surroundings can help—or hinder—the salesperson’s efforts.
All of these challenges can be overcome, however, and the salesperson can increase sales by applying some common sense, no-pressure selling tactics.
