Selling to Used Television and Radio Dealerships

In the current business climate, unpredictability is the only constant for used television and radio dealerships. This article teaches you what you need to do to conquer selling challenges in the used television and radio dealership market and outsell the competition.

In recent years, used television and radio dealerships have become high value targets in the B2B sector.

In any B2B industry, one of the major factors in long-term success is the ability to expand your customer base. On the upside used television and radio dealerships are plentiful, but the challenge is to acquire and retain new accounts.

Review Mechanisms

It's also important to design processes for the review of your sales force and selling strategy. Internal review processes should be based on quantifiable data as well as direct input from used television and radio dealerships themselves.

If necessary, modify your hiring and/or strategy to accommodate changes in the marketplace.

Know Your Products

In the real world, most used television and radio dealerships aren't interested in one-size-fits-all product lines. Before they commit to a purchase, they want to know everything there is to know about your product.

In this industry, differentiation can be the deciding factor in a sale. It's crucial for your sales team to be knowledgeable and informed. If you're selling a service to used television and radio dealerships, your sales force should understand granular details of the service contract and be prepared to resolve customer concerns during the sales cycle.

Reaching Prospective Customers

Prospecting transforms contacts into qualified leads.

Networking can dramatically improve your team's prospecting abilities and conversion ratios. However, it's important to make sure your sales force isn't so focused on conversation that they miss the point of prospecting, i.e. the identification of likely buyers, key decision makers and high value industry contacts. In other words, quality is just as important as quantity when prospecting for used television and radio dealerships.

Lead lists are useful because they narrow the field for your team. Third-party lists from reputable vendors (e.g. Experian Business Services) provide a database of likely conversion targets, making it easier for your company to balance the quantity and quality demands that are prerequisites for effective prospecting.
