Remember the fundamentals of effective communication.
Find a point of agreement.
Make memories that can be shared.
Empathize with others.
Appropriately mirror and match mannerisms and speech.
Building rapport is one of the quickest and most successful ways to develop sales partnerships. Because it puts people at ease, rapport allows for effortless dialogue. Sometimes rapport develops organically; you may strike up a conversation with someone right away. Friendships are frequently formed in this manner.
Make your preparations with the buyer in mind.
During sales conversations, ask amazing questions, not bad ones.
Create value in a proactive rather than reactive manner.
Be open and honest about your abilities and limitations.
Make your worth explicit rather than assumed.
One of the most difficult aspects of any business relationship is building rapport with a difficult person. With practice, you can become more comfortable in uncomfortable situations, establish trust and gain the client's trust.
Sales situations differ from other settings in that there is sometimes limited time to build trust. Customer orientation, selling orientation, expertise, likeability, and reliability are the five dimensions of sales trust.
