The business world becomes open only to people capable of negotiating their businesses, priorities and objectives properly. However, it is not that easy for businesses to agree with each other. Objections will always arise. The power of one to react professionally stems from how they can handle the following details to an objection.
1. The Other’s Viewpoint
Each person is unique, and the same idea also applies to business. Every business has different profits, capabilities, shipping schedules, delivery dates and other details. If somebody objects to your new methods or if your retailer complains about your delivery schedules, always try to see their viewpoint first before stating your own reasons for the delays or delivery performance. You can ask “why do you think our delivery time is too slow?”. In this way, both viewpoints from the argument are given and evaluated equally.
2. Avoiding Objections
In a professional sense, objections and arguments are a waste of time. So before entering any partnership with a business, make it a point to list down your business’ objectives, motivations, advantages and disadvantages. Also, write down the possible objections that other partner companies might have against your product or service. In this way, your company can easily handle objections at the shortest of time.
3. A Yes or No
Turning your counter objection into a yes-or-no question is a simple way to respond to an objection in the best way possible. For example, “our deliveries may not always get there on time given that your location has routes with crammed traffic, you (pertaining to other business) understand these with your delivery vehicles as well correct?”. This is an easier method to end an argument and come to a resolution.
