Your first CHOI CUT experience proves that you have been scammed with the pampering standards you believe you deserve all these years. That you are settling for less. That you are being less thoughtful to yourself.
Who wants to be known as an all-in achiever but unkempt than being a 100% achiever yet sleek?
A decisive man knows this so well – the demand to be a “better him” surges as he set a loftier goal after every achievement. The exhaustion from these efforts no matter how smooth we may execute it, takes a toll on our look. THAT LOOK which whether we like it or not, becomes a suffix to our honorable name. An appeal which becomes part of our reputation. This is when you realize that you have to be thoughtful to the emperor himself. Who wants to be known as an all-in achiever but unkempt than being a 100% achiever yet sleek? It is your CHOIce.
My Choice : The usual barber chair to an all-in grooming throne
Climbing up the corporate ladder demands sleekness. I always value both the credible first impression appearance and the winning presence of a won negotiation. Prospects crave for “that look” during the meet and greet while colleagues (competitors most of the time) capture that smirk the moment another lucrative deal is closed.
Exists only for the gents who always give all-in to his craft, CHOI provides an all-in grooming service every barber appointment you make. If you are used to settle that a cut ends with a blow-dry, your first CHOI CUT experience proves that you have been scammed with the pampering standards you believe you deserve all these years. That you are settling for less. That you are being less thoughtful to yourself. The CHOI experience bundles a relaxing massage and hot towel to the trivial barber routine, which revitalizes your zeal to success instantly after that last soothing wipe of lukewarm towel. The moment you look back at yourself in the mirror, you see a more vivid greatness in you.
Ever since my first CHOI Cut, I have always been assured that pampering myself is something I can now doubt-free delegate. A semi-monthly appointment with your CHOI barber is a reinvigorating part of your work-life ratio. This propels the emperor in you to keep growing your empire.
You are already winning. You just have to be more thoughtful to yourself.
Planning to reserve a Barber’s Chair? No!
Own a time being seated on your pampering throne.
That is the premium CHOIce.

For as long as it fits your shoulders well, you can just simply choose which particular pattern is de rigueur to the varied attire-themed invitations.
What makes a blazer a go-to wear piece for evening events is, you do not have to be tied with a prescribed pair trousers (compared to suit). For as long as it fits your shoulders well, you can just simply choose which particular pattern is de rigueur to the varied attire-themed invitations, still owning that dashing dapper presence. You can not be more frugal too of just simply using those smart slacks you are wearing at work to pair a well chosen blazer.
One is Velvet.
For Black Tie evening functions, every man is expected to clad the usual black blazer jackets or the all black suit. You are a dapper! Thus, intend to wear one which stands out on details. The illustrious, Velvet.
Velvet to begin with, is such a luxurious textile to wear. But what makes a dapper sold to this as a gala wear is, the sheeny pattern when light kisses its smooth surface. Especially when it has embossed pattern (Brocade), Velvet definitely fortifies that the man behind it has a styling bar higher among the men at the gathering.
One is Plaid.
As boggling as how it is to be read \plad\ to how it is spelled p-l-a-i-d, refrain wearing this kind of pattern when you are about to do a sales pitch simply because of the strategic reason to not destruct your listeners’ visual focus. That exact fact of not wearing this at work is the very reason why it is a surefire hit to wear this on corporate occasions. Plaid is such a perfect pattern to exude a retro debonair presence. It is an epitome of vintage elegance.
The Christmas parties of 1969 were filled with plaid wear pieces, both the bold and the fine details (Got this from watching Mad Men). For a retro themed gathering, revitalizing the plaid pattern is a such a modish choice. Among the types of plaid, The Prince of Wales plaid is for me, has the most sophisticated appeal. The interlacing pinstripes which create the box patterns surely turn heads.

It is not a question anymore why you would add the blazer jackets in your styling artillery. The more pressing question now is, Which would you wear for the next social function? One which is Velvet? One which is Plaid?

“We decided to call it “When I was 5″ because essentially my first memory of fashion was, I was with my parents at a party. I saw this lovely girl and for some strange reasons I was so attracted to her. I think she was a friend of my mom and she was dancing. And I asked her (as a five years old), are you wearing Tafetta? It was weird like she asked me what a 5 year old boy knows about what a Tafetta is. That’s what I remember. What I remember was the sound of the Tafetta when it was moving.” -Rajo Laurel
Bright jewel tones of deep plums, blissful blushes and luxurious blues dominate the collection with touches of sparkling golds and silvers.

Money is never a reason of not buying on spot. It is the lack of fear of losing the ownership. Urgency.
Not knowing the strategic reasons why a sales maneuver is being done, unfortunately leads to not knowing what should be the prospect’s ideal response. The salesman then loses the control of the sales encouter, kissing the sale goodbye.
On the list are things Closers are already doing but don’t really appreciate the rationale of doing it sharply. Thus making this list, the open secrets of on spot close.
📍”A Handshake is not just a courteous gesture. It is also a closing tool.”
This may be modified but this will never be totally omitted in every sales encounter. Discover more the art of bridging hands HERE.
📍 “Cordial gestures are not simply for being hospitable. It is also a decoy for control.”
Never be servile. Let it all appear offhand. Be punctual to choose where to sit. Then, guide them toward the table when they arrive. Choose which corner has least distraction. Orient yourself where the toilet, smoking area and the nearest exit. These are helpful when you need to depressurize them. Give them choices of what to drink. Warm or cold? Giving them two options lets them feel they are in control but actually, since you delimited the choices into two, you are the one dictating.
📍”Pre-pitch talk is not just simply to befriend the prospects. It is more of establishing emotional affinity.”
Never ever start pitching your offer unless you already have an emotional pact with your prospect. You have to be relevant to a specific compelling chapter of their life in order for them to hear what they are listening from you. This is how trust forms naturally. Let them associate you in a part of their life that when they remember it, they also remember you.
Tip: Search for the prospect’s social media account to know more his interests. Use this to befriend them but don’t be obvious, seeming like a stalker. Just lead the pre pitch conversation to the topics you have known that they are interested in. The last issue they post something about (avoid politics, religion and sexuality). The last vacation photo uploaded. The latest video or song they liked.
📍 “Name is not known just to address the prospect. It is use to monologue involvement spiels.”
We all learn this from Carnegie’s classic book. Your name is the sweetest word to hear. When the name has more than three syllables, ask how his friends call him. Don’t use sir or ma’am. Simply use first names. Names are so powerful when throwing involvement monologues as you highlight your offer’s benefits. Childhood nicknames are also so effective especially for gratififying spiels of a fixated urge. Yearnings from childhood dictates behavior. Titles boost morale (Doc, Atty. Engr.). Use it when negotiating the price.
📍 “Hearing the prospect’s expectations uses not just the ears. It uses the entire network of the inmost senses as a helpful purchasing barometer.”
Your gut. Your instinct. Maximize it. When you hear what your prospect expects, you can customize the pitch tailored to what they actually need. Hearing them helps you to modulate the kind of approach to use and pick which feature to highlight. Hear what they really want. Hear even what’s not audible. It is stated there what the heart really wants. Grimaces, gestures, eye behavior, silence, warmth (When they try to gulp a glass of water, how they switch seating positions).
When at the end of your pitch you still ask why you have not closed the deal on spot, well it is because you have not done these eight secrets rightly. Still, KEEP TRYING.
📍”A deal is not made with one big Yes. It is formed with a series of preceding small Yeses.”
Small Yeses during the pre pitch talk increase your agreeability. These are precusors to the ultimate Yes, confirm signing on the dotted line. The reason of talking about matters that excite your prospect during the warm up is to collect simple Yeses. Make it a goal to increase your agreeability with a number of at least 10 Yeses or sincere nods before pitching the offer. These are from topics both of you and the prospects were genuinely involved at. Congratulations, You’re halfway to the big Yes.
📍 “Tact is not just choosing the right words. It is also choosing the perfect timing.”
Basic rule is “Adjectives for involvement. Noun for action”. Be ultra sensitive to the effect of every word you say and when is the opportune time to drop it. Reserve synonyms on perfect junctures along your pitch. Use mental pause, laughter and intonations calculatedly. Influence is done with right tact and calibrated spontaneity.
📍 “Only Today Offer (Limited Time Offer) is not imposed. It is availed smoothly when you made a good job on insinuating the fear of loss over the hope of pleasure”
Urgency is the emotion of time. LTO works because of successfully triggering urgency to the prospects. Do not just ask the prospect if they like being an owner. Ask if they like being an owner ON THE DAY. When they fear missing out an offer, it is unnecessary to explain why they have to get the offer on spot. Ask what delays their purchase whenever it is affordable now. Ask what if you can arrange a payment term for them, would they want to start it stat? Compose two on spot offer arrangements as your final close. Money is never a reason of not buying on spot. It is the lack of urgency – the fear of losing the ownership.
It is not enough that you know what to do. You also have to know why the secrets work. That’s the difference between you and the Master Closer. By mastering these secrets, you stop setting the next meeting as a follow-up. The next meeting is set for either an after sales care affair or a pitch for a happy owner’s referral.
Maximize this season’s purchasing confidence with sweet twists of your prospect’s usual cup of coffee while letting them realize how lovely it is to be an owner of what you are pitching.
It is always exciting to close deals on the last quarter. Consumers, because of year-end bonuses, are bent on owning something they love. Maximize this purchasing confidence with sweet twists of your prospect’s usual cup of coffee while letting them realize how lovely it is to be an owner of what you are pitching. Set the meeting at their nearest Starbucks cafe and get your lay down owners the red cups they deserve.

Not that you have to be flawless, but just never let mistakes sabotage your journey to a lucrative close.
It isn’t a pitch when it isn’t compelling. Despite of the efforts we exert to achieve this, unfortunate days exist when we sit back to our chair after a hardly jockeyed sales presentation asking “Is my pitch not involving enough?” The answer is yes. Chances are, it may be because of these reversible mistakes.
When prospects are hyped, Closers FORGET to shift to a take-away pitch.
Blame it to your sizzle that prospects seem levitating with your offer’s benefits. But too much fantasized gratification wards off the deal. Be in control. Sense it when prospects are “excessively sold”. Stop and proclaim that your offer is not for everyone to own. This isn’t a perfect system unless the owner knows how to make this work properly (not perfectly) to them. Equalize the prospect’s “too ideal” mental picture by siting drawbacks when your offer is used improperly. Drive them back to reality, then ask for the close. It is when they have settled from the hype and still they love owning the offer, that ultimately tests how sold they really are.
When the buying commitment turns flat, Closers NEGLECT to detour to a negative pitch.
This is why episodic check of the buying pulse should be done during your pitch. Intermittent trial closes (of asking when this is affordable would they like to own it?) helps you gauge how willful the prospects are to pay. This helps you calibrate whether their yes is a half meant no or an absolute no.
Reverse the next trial close. Ask “When this is affordable why won’t you own it?” Stop talking. They have to talk first. Wait. Count till 5 seconds. When they react, listen intently. Deal with their true concern then rephrase the reversed trial close.
Reverse the fact-benefit sizzles. Sizzle should sound like you are letting them feel the fear of missing out. Squeeze in the phrase “should have”. Present a feature which prospects won’t enjoy the benefit anymore since the ownership is not for them. Never ever be a pushy presenter. You know your offer’s worth. You know your work’s pride. You know your skill’s calibre. Yes you are an egotistical closer!
Return the course of the pitch to the pro active tone after ample throws of ironic involving spiels. Observe the difference. Modulate then your approach.
When the prospects have heard enough, Closers FAIL to articulate silence.
Mental pause augments understanding. Don’t be a rata-tata-tat. Be a bang! Stop believing that the more features you say, the more sold the prospects would be. This is why you have to do well on the warm up. To identify which among the features they’ll associate their purchase. Always make it a culture to count to five every after blowing a weighted feature and every after asking for a close. Before initiating the handshake. The silence helps them substantiate their appraisal which boosts their confidence on doing the purchase. It crushes the fear of buying instantly. If you have lay out the benefits well and sprinkle your sales techniques suavely in the pitch, you will not be afraid to let them breathe and think on that 5 seconds. Use these seconds too to prepare what will you say when the prospects expresses another “no but tell me more” remark. Aside from mental pauses, you can also make use of therapeutic space at some instances. Deliberately leave them for a while at certain parts of the showroom or play like you’ll be going to the toilet shortly.
It isn’t a pitch when it isn’t compelling.
Anything goes during a sales pitch and that should be an advantage for you as a Closer. It is your job to facilitate the way your prospect perceives the encounter. Closers equalize emotions, balance logic and regulate expectations. These modulations make the presentation involving. Not that you have to be flawless, but just never let mistakes sabotage your journey to a lucrative close. Especially when mistakes, though are dab and unavoidable, but are detectable and downright reversible.
Birthday deals are more of the sentimental ones. A close which adds more celebratory vibe to the date of your birth!
The number of birthday celebrations you had over the tenure of your selling career, is a monumental meld on your closing tale. It is a motivating index of how you had gracefully joggled your chronological and professional ages. Are you really making your sales record better as you are getting professionally older? How “sales memorable” were your previous birthdays then? Have you ever handed an official receipt to a prospect with the same day that’s written in your birth certificate?
Make it a goal. Close a birthday deal as a part of your enthrallment of the day you were born. Several twitches from the usual non-birthday pitch should be done. Generally, let the prospect know that it’s your special day and that you are ecstatic to celebrate it with them at the other side of the sales table.
Make the warm-up easier by ridding off their resistance through self depreciating “hung over” spiel. (BUT you’re not really hung over!) Squeeze in at least 3 more lines at the tail of your intent statement for this spiel. Casually ask a favor to bear with your head ache and several requests of glass of water during the entire meeting. Don’t make it sound degrading to your credibility. This is supposed to sound that you are being true and fun that they will be hooked on listening to you until they’re signing on the dotted line. Prospects would like you since you are letting them see a human part of yourself, not the salesman you. This is also such a unique conversation starter to befriend the husband. Ask “What’s your favorite drink on your birthday party? Ask the wife about her hung over care when the husband gets drunk. Then topics would just vine. After all, In vino veritas, in aqua sanitas!
Trigger more urgency through “since it’s my birthday discount” (The fear of missing out.) Offer 2 more percent as a “since it’s my birthday” discount. For example, instead of swiftly offering the full 20% allowable discount, start first at 15%. When they haggle, close the deal at 17%. This is reinforcing the emotion of urgency with personal sentiment of celebrating your birthday. The general rule when negotiating is to prelude every concession you drop with the spiel, “since it is my birthday, What if…”
If you really like the offer, and since it’s my birthday today, what if I’ll give you two percent more discounts. From 15, you will be saving 17% when you’ll get it today. Everyday isn’t my birthday. Would you take it? “
Bundle a special after sales care on the deal (Mean it eternally!) Add value to the purchase they made on your birthday by extending your after sales availability to them. Include extended after sales services which you don’t usually stretch to other buyers. For example, instead of just giving to them the contacts of the customer service, you could also give to them your email address or your personal mobile number (not just the office number). I even ask them to add me in Facebook or Linked-In. Be sincere and mean this for the rest of your sales tenure. Every time you communicate to these classified buyers, It also whispers a festive reminiscence of your previous birthdays. This even gives you a windfall list of qualified referrals.
Birthday deals don’t necessarily have to be the lucrative ones. These are more of the sentimental ones. The deal you have closed on the day you’re celebrating your nativity. A close which adds more celebratory vibe to the date of your birth! A happier birthday, Closer!
