It is important to stay calm and be patient and to be personable while closing a customer. I like to make them feel like they’re receiving the best customer service while also trying to connect with them on a personal level. Customers should feel comfortable, not like you’re forcing them to buy something they don’t want/need for your own agenda. They should always feel that you have their best interests at heart. I like to ask the right questions to figure out the customer’s wants and needs and to create a sense of urgency. They must know they are receiving a great product for the best price, and that it fits in with their needs.
