You often end up on sites like Glassdoor where you’re praying that someone has interviewed for a similar position and was kind enough to list some of the interview questions they received–this is gold. While you might not get the same exact question word for word in your interview, you are now getting a good idea of what they are asking. Is it really technical? Is it behavioral? Was it easy?

A new and exciting approach to selling allowing you to develop the ability to increase sales and gain a competitive advantage. Understand how to sell differently to different customers, be flexible and adapt your sales approach to meet your customers’ requirements.

To influence buying decisions, successful salespeople need to be able to activate the appropriate areas of the customer’s brain – some customers use more emotion than rational analysis when making buying decisions. For others, the reverse is true. When faced with a buying choice, a customer’s subconscious will encourage them to choose you rather than your competitors. This sales approach is known as ‘Neuroselling’.

  1. PRISM Neuroselling – The concept involves making use of the latest discoveries about the brain to understand how it influences decision making, the buying process, empathy, building rapport, communication, the sales process and customer service. The implications for salespeople are considerable. In essence, people make emotional decisions which they then try to rationalise. To influence buying decisions, successful salespeople need to be able to activate the appropriate areas of the customer’s brain.
  2. PRISM Neuroselling – Designed to equip organisations with a comprehensive and practical toolkit of professional, solution driven sales techniques. By understanding neuroscience and how buyers make decisions, it is possible to create approaches that buyers respond to positively.
