Selling Warm Fuzzies – Slam’s Sales Tips 1300-1400

     Dear GutsIsTheKey reader. This is an unusual topical heading for a BEAM. But then again, I am known for being unusual. So the introduction to this series of my sales tips is about “Selling Warm Fuzzies.”

Warm Fuzzy 2

     The most accepted definition in the Urban Dictionary of a Warm Fuzzy is: “The warm, pleasant sensations one feels in the stomach and heart area when emotionally moved by an act of goodwill or love. Watching children open presents on Christmas morning gives me the warm fuzzies.”  

     But there are other common usages for Warm Fuzzies also. There is a cat sanctuary called Warm Fuzzys. There is a nature, wildlife toy company called Warm Fuzzy. There are web-sites about Warm Fuzzies, blogs about Warm Fuzzies and songs about warm fuzzies. So I am by no mean the first to invoke the concept of the Warm Fuzzy, on the internet.

Warm Fuzzy 3

       I remember when a sales pro that I really respected was trying to teach me a more dynamic way to sell years ago; he said “Sell Warm Fuzzies, not products or services.” His point was to add personal appeal to everything you sell. To add a touch of comfort and desire to everything you present. Finding a way to add the “Warm Fuzzy” effect to everything you sell can change you from a So-So sales person, to sales dynamite on a stick!

Warm Fuzzy 4

        Look for ways to sell the warm fuzzy effect, in  marketing your product or service.

  • add humor

  • relate to the customer

  • find ways to make the approach personally appealing.

  • Get rid of the canned approach and do something spontaneous.

  • Add an enjoyable social context to your sales setting. / ex. Take the client to a sports event or a restaurant.

      Bottom line. Help the customer have a higher desire and comfort level in buying from you. In so doing, You may find that a Warm Fuzzy can revolutionize your sales! /// So use the Warm Fuzzy approach with the following sales tips & grow your performance~
