Agile learning is a key to gain your experience.
On the modern market it usually doesn’t matter what your product looks like and what new things you might introduce to your buyer. What does matter is your selling strategy.
However it has never been easy to do it, as a good seller has to do the newly introduced changes and specialties of the market all the time.
Every good seller is supposed to be always in search for new ways to sell, new ways to reach out to the audience and drag its attention.
You might also consider comparing different selling technics for different types of products. For instance, one will never be using the same ad to sell a coffee machine to a housewife and to make students and office workers buy some kind of a laptop.
So we now came to our buyers. They are all different, their needs are different, and what’s more they change all the time. They learn new things about your product and the market itself. They find new sources of information and they use it. They become smarter.
Nowadays when we are in an era of Internet people don’t want you to tell them all the information you have about a product you are selling, they may go online and read it all without your help.
It doesn’t mean though that buyer does not need sellers anymore, and that there is no job for the last ones at all. The statistics show that people tend to care more about your experience in sales rather than the price of a product, or the product itself.
What a good seller should do in order to perform customers with his experience is to pretend like he is a buyer and thus to understand what their actual needs are.
But it is a complicated way of archiving good results. A better one is called “Agile learning”.
It means that a seller keeps looking for all the newly introduced changes and adapts to them. If your partner hires a new CEO that means that you will change for sure. And you need to learn from it and gain your experience.
