4 Tips To Thrive as a Summer Salesperson - Finnegan Pierson - ContactCenterWorld.com Blog

4 Tips To Thrive as a Summer Salesperson

It takes a lot to be an effective salesperson. You must know your product inside and out and know your target audience just as well. On top of that, you must learn creative avenues of communicating with consumers in a way that draws their attention. Making all of this even trickier is that fact that the most effective sales strategies change over time and between different seasons. If you are trying to maintain your sales throughout the summer, consider a few tips that may help you to adjust your approach as productively as possible.

1. Alter Your Sales Pitch to Fit the Current Season

If you work in sales, you undoubtedly have a few well-practiced pitches that you use to explain your products to potential customers. While this is a great skill to have, remember that the descriptions you use during one season may no longer be as convincing later in the year. Be sure to incorporate aspects of summer that all people can relate to. 

For example, if you aim to inform consumers about how and where to buy solar panels, be sure to explain why solar panels are a great investment during the summer months. Perhaps these panels can generate an especially large amount of electricity using the intense sunlight during this season or this electricity will help lower peoples' air conditioning expenses. It's important to instill a sense of urgency, that summertime is really the ideal time to make a certain purchase.

2. Understand How Consumers' Habits May Change

Another important tip to keep in mind is that your target audience's routines may be different during the summer months. Many people travel during this season or have breaks from school, for instance. This may change where they go during the day, which websites they visit, when they spend time on social media or how much money they have available in their budget. 

Because all of this data impacts the way you connect with consumers, it's important to modify your marketing approach accordingly. For example, you may wish to pay to place ads on webpages you believe your target audience may visit more often during this season, such as travel sites. Additionally, pay close attention to the times at which you attempt to contact a potential customer. This includes door-to-door sales, phone calls and social media posts. You may be more likely to find people at home during the day in the middle of summer than in other seasons.

3. Introduce Special Promotions

Another great way to boost your sales during the summer is by offering new promotions or discounts. Everyone loves a good deal while doing their summer shopping. These promotions could include everything from a coupon code mentioned on the radio to a limited time discount for repeat customers. Consider communicating summer specials over social media, through email and via advertisements in order to reach both past and future customers.

4. Design Fresh Advertising Content

A final piece of advice when it comes to being successful in your summer sales endeavors is to switch up the ads you use. Summertime is often an especially fun time for many families, so let your slogans and graphics reflect this. People are more likely to invest in a product when they feel it adds to their enjoyment of the season. Consider incorporating summer-themed images into your advertisements, such as people sitting by their pool or on their porch. You may even wish to do this verbally in your product descriptions.

Working as a salesperson in the summer presents some unique challenges. Namely, many consumers are out and about and doing different things than their normal routines would dictate. Although this may trip up some peoples' sales approaches, you can stay ahead of the curve by modifying your sales pitch, advertisements and means of communication to fit the season. You may just find your summer sales end up being your very highest!
