Key Takeaways: The Psychology of Logistics Sales
- Dan Deigan helps logistics sales professionals increase their sales.
- In the podcast interview, Dan shared three strategies related to the psychology of logistics sales:
- Strategy 1: Technical knowledge is mandatory, but not enough to be successful in sales. Sales professionals need to recognize that buyers (shippers) often buy for irrational reasons that they might not share. Understanding the shipper’s buying behavior is key.
- Strategy 2: The salesperson needs to be aware of the 3 phases of the relationship: curiosity, enlightenment, and commitment so they can support the customer with the right information. A related concept is the know, like, trust spectrum. Customers are more likely to buy from people, they know, like, and trust.
- Strategy 3: Always make the customer the hero. It is important for the salesperson to help the buyer be seen as successful within their company. The person buying logistics has a career and they would like to get credit for the logistics success that you helped them achieve.
