Just as fashion trends are often fleeting, some sales techniques are fleeting. Some sales techniques will be good ideas this month and bad ideas next month. That does not change the fact that the sales technique should be users this month. When you understand and appreciate this idea, you will be able to pick up and put down new sales techniques at will and probably have better sales results. It cannot be stressed enough that sales techniques are tools. Tools are to be used as long as they do the job and then set aside when they no longer do the job or lose their effectiveness.
Keep in mind the fact that not every new sales technique is good for every business. When new sales techniques appear, look deep before you leap. Make sure a technique is a good fit for your company before you adopt it. Even if all your competitors are jumping on board, you do not have to jump with them. Take time to make sure the trends you follow work with your employees, business and client base. When a sales trend is wrong for your business, it will cost you more than you gain. When a trend is right for your business, it will lead to profit. Carry out your own due diligence investigation before starting to follow a new sales trend.
