Buying Signals In Sales – How to Recognize & Act On Them

With Host Nikki Rausch, Sales Maven Society

Sales Maven Podcast - How to recognize buying signals

Do you know when a client is giving you buying signals in sales?

Listen as your host Nikki Rausch shares the noise she hears in her head when a buying signal is activated. She has been teaching buying signals in sales for years, and they are one of the main reasons she started her own business. Nikki is here to offer you sales techniques and strategies to help you master the sales conversation.

Nikki shares her definition of a buying signal in sales, discusses putting together training for the top ten missed buying signals and her book Buying Signals, Converting Casual Conversation Into Sales. Then, Nikki issues a challenge to the listeners and details the top five buying signals she discussed in this episode. 

Have you ever had a conversation with a potential client that made you think, hmmm, are they interested in being my client, yet didn’t act on it? If so, you probably missed the signal they were giving you. Listen as Nikki details the top five missed signals and see if it doesn’t make you want to revisit past conversations with clients you didn’t pursue.

Nikki believes everyone needs to be turned on and tuned in to buying signals because they are everywhere. Nikki had done this training for years, and every time someone tells her they had no idea. If your business is suffering because you can’t seem to get potential clients to ask for your services, maybe it’s time you started issuing invitations. If you follow the steps as Nikki has them laid out, you can’t help but be successful.
