A recent article, Here are Three Reasons Why Salespeople Fail to Close Deals by Renzo Costarella says that sales is a game of resilience —you’re going to hear the word no over and over again. There’s no single solution to close the deals, but there are three common reasons why salespeople fail to close deals.

Here are three mistakes to avoid to increase your chances of closing deals.

1. Inability to address the buyer’s needs.

A buyer is looking for a solution. So that solution is what you need to sell to them. During your sales pitch in a meeting space, a buyer will begin to gather information to help them make their decision.  You need to ensure you are addressing those needs otherwise they won’t be able to justify the purchase.  

2. Inability to create personal connections.

Sales is about relationships. Try to match up with their personality and engage in conversation outside of business. The more you can build relationships with them, the better.

3. Inability to express basic knowledge about the business.

In sales, trust is essential. You’re not expected to be an expert, but at least you need to express basic knowledge. For instance, if you work for a technology company, you need to know the basic technology well enough to start conversations about technical integrations. Inability to express this knowledge will cause the buyer to lose confidence in you and your offering.
