Gerlanda explains - “The skill of selling is to be well prepared and gain the trust of the prospective client to the point they will want to buy from you rather than having you sell to them or have the need to negotiate. If someone sees you as an expert and truly believes in you and your products / services, they will not only buy from you but will also remain with you as a long-standing and loyal client, will spread the word about your highly valued services and even give you referrals, as long as the after service is as good as the sales process and you deliver what you promised”.
