Too many deals are lost today because the customer did not “like” the person selling to him or her. These behaviors can be revealed by the sentiment of conversations, and are often a result of a personality mismatch between the seller and the customer. Matching buyers and sellers and ensuring positive engagements are strategic sales priorities to maximize win rates.
Although we train sales professionals to identify their buyer profiles and coach them on situational leadership styles, it is not easy changing your communication style consistently. As a result, even the most disciplined sales person often fails to get a customer interested – simply from a communication / style mismatch. This is why SalesChoice has built Sentiment Insights and Personality Profiler into our AI Insight Engine. This will ensure that your sales resources communication styles secure a positive response and hence improve your odds of building a trusted customer relationship.
