PREVENT the objection, "I have to consult with _____." Strategy 1 of 3

Objection_Free_Selling_IconObjection 9 of 85: I have to consult with _____.

When does it usually occur? After your presentation.
Probable Cause: Buyer does not believe s/he has enough authority to move the project forward or is unsure how to proceed..
Objective: Identify the key decision-makers in this sale and create coaches and champions.

PREVENTION Strategy 1 of 3: This sales stall can often be prevented by identifying from your lead sources (referral, directory, or network), who, by title or function, would most likely be in the different decision-making roles.

There are usually six different types of decisions made in most sales situations. These different decisions are often made by different people in different roles (see previous blogs for more information). Knowing who you will need to include in the process takes this stall and turns it into another anticipated step in your sales process (see strategic sales plan link below to identify where in your sales process this concern would occur).
