What To Say When Asked To Trade Services
How do you feel about being asked to trade services?
Nikki is really curious to find out who has traded services and how it worked out, especially if you have a strong opinion about it. What do you say when asked to trade services?
The purpose of today’s episode is to give you some possible language to use when someone asks you to trade services so that you are prepared and know how you want to respond, plus much more on this episode of the Sales Maven Show.
Nikki believes that when someone asks to trade services with you, they are trying to sell you something because you have to be willing and find value in whatever they are offering in the trade. It’s a big deal to trade if the thing you are trading for doesn’t bring any value to you, and sometimes people feel like they got the short end of the stick.
Do you know what to say when asked to trade services?
It’s okay to say no, but it’s also okay to ask. Nikki says to be confident in your response, and she shares some possible responses you could offer. The first one is, thank you for asking, I don’t trade for services, but I would be happy to earn your business. Another response might be: thank you for asking. As much as I appreciate what you offer, it’s not a great fit for me. Listen in to hear the other responses Nikki gives that can open the door to other business.
