Reviews for How to Close at 95%
One of the best books I have read in my 30 years plus of sales. Practical ideas on how to build rapport and close more business.
Eric has quite a brain and a very intuitive way of relating to people! Bravo!
Loved this book. It’s easy to read yet super helpful. I am actually reading it again to let it all sink in. Thank you so much!!
This was so familiar. I have used these principles for years. This is exactly what I try to teach young salespeople.
As someone who has never been crazy about sales, I found the book very helpful in understanding the process flow. Furthermore, I will look at every interaction going forward as an opportunity to practice since one is always working to build and maintain good rapport...Hopefully, the trust I gain from such rapport will make me the "go to guy" for referrals when someone brings up the services I offer.
I thought it was very informative and clearly laid out steps to achieving a successful sales cycle. I could really relate and took away some helpful tips. Overall it was a great read.
The book was filled with energy and real life examples. An easy read with some good nuggets and ideas for using time effectively by qualifying prospects based upon establishing rapport. So interesting! Thank you for sharing this sales method.
This book provided steps people like me can adapt in our effort to provide services in the cold market...I am studying these steps to help me overcome some of my sales challenges. I find this book valuable.
The book was a good, short read. Some interesting perspective and good suggestions for establishing rapport. I’ve used several of the techniques that do work.
The story is very concise. The author made good points for marketing /selling strategies.
Planswell continues to offer useful, practical advice in easy-to-digest servings! This process has applications for a multitude of services.
Great book for any age. Who can forget, "Everything in life is sales"?
The ability to prequalify potential clients is crucial. The way the book is written does a great job of explains this. Great read for anyone in sales.
First time I just scanned through the book. This weekend I read it. A good study of mindfulness and service. Great!
