CUSTOMER LIFE CYCLE JOURNEY
Salesperson should find or diagnose the need of customer or client at ist stage. Without understanding the needs of customer he would not be able to sell or convey the product message, if he fails to convey the message he may not retain old customers or make new customers.
In the second stage, he has to research that how can he fulfill the demands and basic needs of customer? The research will give you very fair idea and accurate data how to interact with customer?
In the third stage, help customer in selecting the product by stating him or her the features, benefits and advantages of the product. you can only help if you have very sound knowledge of your product.
In the fourth stage, There are lot of chances that customer would purchase product for trial. Once he satisfies what you pitched and the product is exactly upto the mark or above that mark, he will definitely repeat his purchases.
In the fifth and sixth stage, he will receive and use that product.
In seventh stage, If sales team is smart and good enough they will maintain the trust of customer, as he can repeat his off takings on regular basis.
In eight stage, he will recommend to other to buy that product as well.
