How to Close Business Deals in Five Ways

By Subscribe to RSS | July 12th 2012 | Views:

If you are in the lead generation process of your business, you will know that in the course of your work, you will encounter a situation where you have to close deals. Not that it is a necessary part of your work, but it is important that you convert the B2B leads you generated on your own. Now this is where complications might arise. Business prospects these days might be easy to turn into sales leads, but turning them into an actual deal can be pretty complicated. Prospects are no longer the type who will swallow whatever hype has been thrown their way. Rather, they will make it harder for you to succeed.


Still, while the job is hard, it does not mean that it is impossible. You just need to take note of five things in handling business sales leads:


1.Think of this as a process– depending on your offer, closing a deal may take you a day or several weeks. But this is no reason for you to panic. This is just the natural process, so take your time with it. That deal will come to you when the time is right. Nurturing the leads is also an important part of the sales process.

2.Keep a clear objective– when you have a business objective, make it a point that it should be clear and aggressive enough for your campaign. Ideally speaking, your aim should be more on the side of something concrete, like signing up for a deal or buying from your company. Forget about vague and sentimental words like building a relationship with you and the like.

3.Let the close come naturally– a good member of a lead generation team is someone who can lead the conversation naturally towards a closed deal. Prospects are more responsive to sales representatives who are engaging, and are able to guide them towards a decision that will be agreeable to both parties.

4.Take your time– you do not have to hurry in closing deals (which is the best advice), but you also have to be able to tell if the prospect is ready to do business with you. You do not have to be afraid. If you sense that the prospect is ready to make a decision, then ask right away. You have nothing to lose if you ask for their business.

5.Look at the brighter side of things– sure, you may have a hard time with your B2B leads, and your rate of success is low, but you can always stay positive. There are a lot of things that you can be happy about. Focus on these and you will not be depressed whenever you hit bumps along the lead generation process.


Closing deals sure is a challenge for you, but it is not impossible. You can always succeed in the end. As long as you have the tools, the patience, as well as a guide in making the right moves, then success is right down in your alley.
