SHE ATE COLD FOOD TO AVOID HAVING TO TELL…

Do you know anyone who has ever eaten cold food or something that they did not like at a restaurant, just to avoid having to tell the waiter that their dish was not to their satisfaction, or to avoid making everybody else wait while their food would be warmed up, or even worse, just to avoid attracting any attention to themselves?
This may even be YOU. If that happens to someone you know more often than others, they may be a Supporter. People with this personality style represent over 60% of the population.
Today, I will discuss how to “sell” your idea to an Supporter. Wether you are trying to convince your kid to eat vegetable or selling a contract to a potential customer, this will be very useful to know if you are facing this personality type.

Here is an excerpt from THINK Yourself@ A RELATIONSHIPS PRO, written in collaboration with Maureen Hagan, Personality and Behavioural Expert. This book on communication, relationships, sales, collaboration, influence, getting along, uses the STYLE-L.I.S.T. personality assessment tool to take you on a journey of discovery, firstly of your own personality style and how to interact with people of other styles.

HOW TO SELL TO A SUPPORTER

What you should focus on when you sell to a Supporter: They buy from those whom they relate to and feel the most loyal, committed and comfortable with, so show personal interest early. Support the relationship with the person, not just the sale. Look for early dissatisfaction. Communicate patiently and ask questions to involve them in the interaction. Ask what they will need to feel comfortable making a decision.

Take the time, be less time-disciplined. Communicate with a slower, friendlier pace and check in with “How are you doing?” Spend casual time asking about non-business or sale-related questions (about their family, their personal or mutual interests). Be personal and informal, and welcome an ‘open-conversation’ environment.

To move a Supporter to a decision: Welcome their personal opinion. Develop relationships first (and the sale follows).  Provide personal guarantees and assurance. Minimize risk for the Supporter in any sales process. Ask questions about the purchase and get any concerns out on the table for discussion. Create a vision that helps the Supporter see the positive outcomes and benefits of the sale (short term and long term).

You: “Could you see yourself doing me a huge favour tonight and come to the new Star Wars movie? I have been wanting to see it for a while.”

Supporter: “Yes sure!” (More likely, when asking for a favour, the Supporter will be happy to go along.)

You: “Let’s go the same movie theatre as usual and sit where we always do okay?”
