Selling to High D’s:

  • Give them info in soudbites. Short and sweet.
  • What is it you are trying to sell? Give it to them in bullet points.
  • Don’t give them a ton of info not in bullets.
  • Once a high D has bought…STOP SELLING THEM. STOP TALKING.

Selling to High I’s:

  • Remember they are all about people.
  • Don’t go into the meeting giving them information right off the bat. Ask them how they are doing?
  • But don’t be fake! Be genuinely interested in them.
  • They wont hear a ton of details so follow up with them in a more detailed email.
  • If you keep the meeting fun and energetic then you will get the sale.

Selling to High S’s:

  • This is the most difficult style to sell to. Most people give up on them.
  • They are always asking themselves “how is this going to impact the team?”.
  • It takes them a long time to make the decision.
  • Give them information. Teach them how your product, service will help the company, team.
  • If you communicate to them how the organization will benefit, understand it will take a lot of follow up. But the effort is worth it!

Selling to High C’s:

  • You have to have A LOT OF DETAIL to sell to high C’s. They don’t want salesmanship or hype.
  • They just want the facts. It doesn’t need to be exciting.
  • If they disagree with your facts…you lost the sale.
  • Be prepared.
  • Ask them, “Are there any questions?”.
  • This allows them to give information back to you so you can fill in more information.
  • And remember…DETAIL DETAIL DETAIL!!!

    The coffee recipe is very close to the “spicy mocha” we tried at my LP session. I will have to try it with turmeric and maca!

    I’m a high “S” – I wish my wife would have known when we were dating that it takes me a long time to make a decision….that two years probably felt like forever to her. :)

      HAHAHA!!! Hey if she made it that long, I think you’re in the clear. :)

    Love this, Chris! Maybe you can cover the opposite: how sell based on your profile.

      I’m thinking of doing an in-depth product. Thoughts?

        I know that I am both a high C and an introvert. I know I have had a hard time grasping sales. My past view of sales has been of a pushy salesman (the used-car dealer gets a lot of attention, so I’m thinking of a furniture store salesman). Because of you and other podcasts, I know that sales is not like that and that there are different types of sales.

        I would buy it. There have been a lot of folks that “dance around” using DiSC to sell but no one that does anything in-depth.

        Look forward to seeing it.

    Chris,
    Great show as always!
    Is it somewhat ironic that you’re “selling” the idea of DISC as a way to connect with different personalities, yet you took a very hit-the-highlights, short-and-sweet [High D!] approach? ;)
    I didn’t notice it at first since, as a High D, you were pitching me the way I like to be pitched!
    Maybe you need 4 different podcasts this week. LOL!
