The sales process is not straight. If you know what your customers want, you can make a sale. In a down economy, the most important thing is to understand how you can still both help your customer and have success. 

Here are some tips to help you achieve sales success in a down economy.

Recognize that they need you more 

Some of my most successful sales periods came during a down economy. When things are tough it actually provides a golden opportunity as they need you more than even to help them navigate the rough period.

Help your customers by providing added value

Your customers care most about the impact on their revenue and expenses. During these times focus on ways you can help them impact their sales,  lower their costs or provide added protection.

Share successes

There has never been a better time to share how others similar to them are having success. Give them some creative ideas or techniques that get results and you will have a customer for life. It’s also a great opportunity to become a connector by referring them to others who can help them address specific and timely needs. 

“It’s getting lonely here” so take full advantage of it 

We all know the term that the strong will survive. Well in sales weak competitors often fall into the “doom and gloom” attitude and quickly scatter. This means there are fewer competitors and more opportunities for you to stand out by being there to help your customers. 


As you can see, a down economy provides you with many opportunities to be successful with the help of Gary Kurtis. If your business needs some assistance or motivation during these tough economic times, read this blog post by Gary Kurtis – don’t give up when things are tough!
