There are more sellers than buyers today.  Competition is more fierce & determined than ever before.  There are fewer customer dollars available for an ever expanding & desirable assortment  of products & services.  Reality is Whatever got you to where you are today is not enough to keep you there or to get you any further.

Selling is more complex than ever before.  Customer needs, wants, desires, problems are more complex than ever before.  Therefore selling today requires greater focus & clarity than ever before.  Who exactly is your ideal customer?  describe him / her in two ways:  Demographics – age, education income, location, family situation, occupation, etc. and Psychographics – desires, ambitions, hopes, fears, aspirations for the future, etc.  Also, why does your ideal customer buy from you rather than the competition?  Basically what is your competitive advantage?

Look selling today requires greater preparation than ever before.  Credibility is the most important single factor in business success.   The more thoroughly you prepare before meeting a customer the greater your credibility.  Use all the tools in today’s world (Internet, blogs, etc.) to conduct your research.

Last New Reality of Selling is Customers today are more demanding than ever before.  Customers are more skeptical, suspicious and they receive multiple offers of Products / Services in today’s business environment.  This coupled with idea that Customers have limited resources and do these customers do NOT want to make a bad decision.
