    I love this video by +Chuck Bauer. I have watched it many times because
    when it comes to Sales Training, this guy knows what he’s talking about.

    It’s safe to say that the first 30 seconds of any sale is the most
    important when it comes to building rapport with your prospect. Get this
    wrong and the sale won’t happen. Listen to +Chuck Bauer as he helps you
    understand how it all happens..

    Also, you should know your customer within the first 30 seconds. You should
    know their personality, how they interpret what information is given to
    them, and what they want to hear(or, at least have a vague idea). Then, use
    that to your advantage. Ask questions that you provide the answer to.
    Example: “How often would you say that you listen to classic rock music?
    Every day, or just a few times a week?” Never allow your potential customer
    to make their own answer.

    listened and watched your video! was great, ive been in the sales business
    for about 6 months now and all i do is ask customers/clients how they are
    and how there week has been… instead of focusing on the sale, i focus on
    the person that im talking to, that way i can get an idea of what they are
    like, their personality and majority of the time, they make the sale for me
    without me having to do anything. great video, i can take alot from this
    and i hope it will benefit me in the future. cheers.

    Thanks Chuck, I am from Europe and dealing with the same questions as well
    daily “how to sell better” and the answer is always the same – be better
    partner to your customer – listen, care, know, deliver etc. I wish you good
    luck with your trainings!

    Michael, It is not as cookie cutter as you think. There is much more to the
    call, as you know, than just the question. Most salespeople have some
    foundation to the call built before they pop the question. It may come 3
    minutes into the call, 5 or even 10 minutes. At some point, you still
    should ask and their are many reasons to do so. But at the inital point of
    the call …. I don’t think so and nobody else does either. I hope this

    I am SO buying your books. You sold me. It’s hard to sale a
    salesman(woman). I consider myself a “hard-sale” because I know all of the
    tricks. BUT… you just sold me because after watching your videos, I know
    this can help me. I don’t feel tricked at all.

    I hate to be picky, but “Tell me about you” is not a question… It is a

    I agree, but if you could go more in depth on each power point it will be
    that much more helpful. I need more notes.
