Boost Your Sales Game: How Chatting with AI Can Sharpen Your Edge

Picture this: You're gearing up for a sales call, and the stakes are high. You want to nail it, right? Well, guess what? There's a secret weapon waiting for you, and it's not as out-there as you might think. It's ChatGPT, your AI buddy, ready to transform the way you prep for those game-changing conversations. 

In our team meeting this week, our Managing Partner, Mary Ann McLaughlin, shared how she flipped the script. She took on the role of a client while ChatGPT played her part in an upcoming sales call she was prepping for. This got us thinking: There are additional ways to use ChatGPT to make your sales calls not just good, but great. I'd like to share my top 3:

1. The Direct Challenge: You vs. AI

Imagine squaring off against a prospect who's got questions, objections, and demands. That's where ChatGPT comes in, playing the part of your client while you stay in your sales superstar shoes. Here's why this rocks:

Setting the Stage: Right off the bat, clarify what you're hoping to achieve and agree on the game plan with your prospect. It's like sharpening your pitch to a fine point and setting a friendly vibe for the whole call.

Question Like a Pro: ChatGPT throws you curveballs, pushing you to ask better questions and really listen to what your "prospect" needs. It's about getting into their operating reality and finding out what makes them tick.

Ace Those Objections: When objections come your way, treat them like gold. They're your chance to understand more and really show how your solution fits perfectly into their puzzle.



2. Walk A Mile In Their Shoes: Role Reversal

Flip the script and let ChatGPT take the wheel as the salesperson, while you step into your client's shoes. It's eye-opening to see things from the other side. Here's the scoop:

Empathy Is Key: Being the client helps you tune into their needs and concerns, sharpening your ability to connect and communicate.

Find New Hurdles: You'll stumble upon objections you hadn't even thought of, giving you a treasure trove of insights to refine your pitch and handle those curveballs like a champ.

Polish Your Message: Hearing ChatGPT's take on selling can help you tweak your approach, making your pitch irresistible.

3. The Ultimate Prep: Watching AI in Action

Let ChatGPT play both parts and just watch the magic happen. It's a fantastic way to get a bird's-eye view of the sales dance, spotting what works and what doesn't. You'll pick up on:

Strategies That Win: See how different tactics and specific word choices play out and what nudges a conversation towards a successful close.

Handling Objections Like a Boss: Get a broader perspective on potential pushbacks and the slickest ways to address them.

Best Practices: Learn from how ChatGPT handles both sides of the call, giving you a playbook of moves to drive your calls to success.

So, there you have it—three dynamic ways to use ChatGPT to up your sales game. Whether you're going toe-to-toe with AI, stepping into your client's shoes, or playing the role of observer, these strategies are game-changers.
