Selling by Payment?

A customer is standing by the vacuum cleaner display. The Sales assistant approaches the customer and asks “are you looking for an upright or cylinder?”

Which letter best describes the selling skills?

Product knowledge know what you are selling.

Acknowledge customer – make eye contact

You now establish the customers need & wants

Match the products to the needs & wants

Ensure the customer is satisfied.

Now close the sale

Take the money!

I was inspired by this when I visited the local electricity shop. It is kiss inspired (keep it simple stupid).

I like the idea of following “payment” to make the sale.

Does it only work for face to face sales or can it be adapted for over the telephone and when you need to sell services?

What else other acronyms do you follow to make the sale?
