How to Sell to Tanning Bed Retailers

Once your foot is in the door, how do you close the sale?

Like many of us, tanning bed retailer business owners are busy professionals operating on tight schedules. As a rule, be respectful of your customers' time constraints and clearly communicate your main points first.

In some instances, your initial contact at tanning bed retailers you call on may not even be the decision maker, making it necessary to quickly locate the real decision maker and adjust your approach accordingly.

Hiring Staff

Your sales force is your most important sales asset. A first-rate sales strategy is ineffective if your sales team is unable to do their jobs effectively.

Most tanning bed retailers appreciate the value of sales professionals who are equipped to discuss the value of their products. When a customer has a problem with an order, they typically reach out to their sales contact so it's imperative for your team to be trained in techniques for service after the sale.

Message First, Targets Second

Messaging is an important part of a successful sales strategy. Confused messaging dilutes the sales cycle and makes it difficult for prospective customers to discern the value of your products.

For maximum impact, the identification of key messaging should be incorporated into a comprehensive planning process that combines sales and marketing into a coherent strategy.

The next step is to reduce your contact list to the contacts who are most likely to respond to your messaging. Although there are multiple ways to generate leads, lead lists can be a useful resource for generating a list of prospects that are receptive to your messaging. Vendors like Experian are adept at providing targeted lists of tanning bed retailers that can be customized to your precise specifications.
