Which Questions Best-Fit Industry Customers?

General NewsDo you know which questions to ask your customers? Some questions you ask can actually grab your customer’s attention more, while others can push them away from your product more. Certain questions can get the sale that you want. You can ask a customer, do you know what separates my product from all others? Then give them a small overview of your product and it’s significance. You should never ask a customer how much do they have to spend, that can turn them away as well. Your customers are much more concern with how you can help them find what they need. Always remember that Open-ended questions are the best. An open-ended question prevents a simple yes or no answer, and forces a customer to elaborate a bit. This strategy is great, because you can get a clearer understanding of what the customer need.
