Sales can be a tricky profession. It requires skill, resilience, determination, and passion. But there is one skill that is more important than the rest: understanding your personal selling style. Many salespeople don’t know their personal style, and they go into a sale blind. But this knowledge can make the difference between closing a sale and a customer walking.

It’s essential to understand how your selling style drives and affects your sales interactions. If you know the strengths and potential trouble spots of each of the four selling styles, you will be able to guide your own sales efforts and anticipate and respond appropriately to your customers’ needs.

Building Enriched Customer Relationships: What’s My Selling Style?

Selling Style

Selling style is defined as the way a person performs sales based on their own behavior. Knowing your style is important, but knowing the style of people around you is just as important. For example, if your customer has a style different from your own, the likelihood of making the sale can be dramatically reduced. But when you understand your personal selling style and the individual styles of your customers, you are better able to adjust your behavior and close the deal.

The Four Styles

There are four selling styles that people tend to encompass. They are:

  1. Direct. People who take charge, are in control, competitive, fast-paced, authoritative, and leaders.
  2. Spirited. People who are enthusiastic, friendly, motivators, high-profile, and decision-makers.
  3. Considerate. People who are warm, counseling, cooperative, reliable, and caring.
  4. Systematic. People who are accurate, objective, factual, organized, and problem-solving.

Once you know which one you are – and which one your current customer is – you can modify your sales technique and be better prepared for the journey through the sales funnel.
