One of the biggest problems salespeople face is dealing with the amount of issues that come up with clients after the initial sale is made. Many clients can be high-maintenance, or can be difficult to please. The good news is you can take steps before the sale is made to ensure that you are drastically reducing the chances of such scenarios arising. 1) Don’t Sell To Everyone There is a certain amount of information you can gather about your prospect prior to making a sale.
