What You Need to Know About Selling Services

The Pest Posse

Selling pest control services requires different skills than sales for tangible products. Here are a few things you need to consider when selling your service.

Customer Experience

The customer experience is your business’s competitive advantage.

Effective selling is a customer-centric process. Whether selling to one person or an entire company, the customer experience sets you apart from your competition and is the key to a successful sale.

Understand Your Customer

When selling your pest control service, it’s critical to identify the specific pest issues that your customers are experiencing. This will allow you to explain how your service can resolve those problems.

Negotiate Effectively

When selling your pest control service, it’s essential to negotiate a reasonable price. Figure out what the market is in your area. Never sell yourself short or give away the service because you think you or your company is not worth it. Your experience and knowledge are more valuable than you think.

Get to Know Your Customers

You will need to take the time to learn about your customers and understand their needs. Build a genuine rapport to provide a positive experience throughout the buying process. Look around; what do they have? Is it two sports cars, a boat, two kids, and a dog named Spot?

Educating Yourself

When selling a pest service, you must educate yourself on the services your company can provide and the industry. This can be done through online training courses, in-person events, or subscribing to a pest control trade magazine like PMP.

Research Your Market

The market for your pest control service is a vital aspect of your success. This includes understanding your target customers, their needs, and how they buy.

Position Yourself as an Expert

When selling your pest control service, it is essential to position yourself as an expert in your field. This will increase your credibility and the likelihood that people will refer your business to friends and family.
