4 Strategies to Sell Without Being Pushy

Agile Office SpaceA recent article, 5 Easy Ways to Sell Without Being Pushy or Obnoxious by Jeff Charles says that selling is really difficult — you need to strike the right balance between presenting your points and not pushing your prospect into a corner.

Here are a few actionable tips to improve your sales without being pushy and close more deals.

  1. Change your mindset

Clients are the primary source of income. Because of this, it gives you pressure to rush straight into your sales pitch rather than taking the time to get to know your prospect.  Therefore, this will cause you to lose more than you win.

Change your mindset and develop your own sales process. It’s more efficient to work your sales process until it’s time to close instead of believing that you must close the deal right away.

  1. Ask relevant questions

Good and pertinent questions will encourage your prospect to open up to you. When they feel comfortable talking to you, you start to gain their trust. The more they talk, the deeper the connection you’re able to build with them, the more chances of winning the sale.

  1. Help your prospect feel relax

One of the easy ways to sell is to make your prospect comfortable. Wear a smile and use humor when interacting. The more relax your prospect is, the better your chances will be of earning their business.

  1. Focus on your customer needs rather than your product

Find out what their needs are and find ways to help them problem solve. Become an adviser to your prospect, not just someone who wants to sell them something.


Follow these simple tips and your prospects will see you as someone who genuinely cares about their needs, helping you close more deals. With more sales coming in, you will need a workspace where you can do your business.
