Οι πελάτες φέρνουν τα κέρδη

Μην χάσετε την Κυριακή 12 Μαρτίου στις 13:30 την ομιλία του Δρ Ιωάννη Κριτσωτάκι.

Όλοι οι πελάτες δεν είναι ίδιοι ούτε υπάρχουν “Δύσκολοι πελάτες”, όπως πολλοί νομίζουν. Η πρώτη εντύπωση παίζει ρόλο στο πώς θα σε δεχθεί ο πελάτης. Μάθε λοιπόν πώς να κερδίζεις τις εντυπώσεις. Το “άνοιγμα της συζήτησης” με τον πελάτη είναι τέχνη. Μην αφήνεις την “ξύλινη γλώσσα” να τη σκοτώσει… Ο πελάτης αγοράζει όφελος (το συμφέρον του) και όχι τις ιδιότητες του προϊόντος σας. Σταμάτα να μιλάς για το προϊόν σου και μίλα για τις ανάγκες του πελάτη. Μάθε πώς να “διαβάζεις” αυτά που κρύβει ο πελάτης, δες τις αντιρρήσεις του ως ευκαιρία για πώληση.
• Ποτέ δεν μπορείς να είσαι σίγουρος για την πιστότητα του πελάτη σου
• Η απόκτηση ενός νέου πελάτη κοστίζει μέχρι και 10 φορές παραπάνω από τη
διατήρηση ενός υφιστάμενου
• Οι πωλήσεις είναι αυτές που φέρνουν το χρήμα στην επιχείρηση
• Οι προϊοντικές διαφορές είναι ελάχιστες
• Ο ανταγωνισμός γίνεται όλο και πιό σκληρός

Μόνο για ιδιοκτήτες ΚΞΓ. Απαραίτητη η κράτηση θέσης. Κάντε κράτηση εδώ
Δρ Ιωάννης Κριτσωτάκις

Ο Γιάννης Κριτσωτάκις είναι διδάκτωρ των Εμπορικών Επιστημών του Οικονομικού Πανεπιστημίου της Βιέννης με εξειδίκευση στην Επικοινωνία και στο Marketing Εξαγωγών.
