'The deal is closed', that is probably favourite sentence for all salesmen. And those who are good in what they are doing hear it quite often. Of course it is not easy to be a good salesman but there are few things that you might do to hear more of ‘deal is closed’ sentences. So, what does a good salesman really need?

Confidence and conviction

Being self confident helps almost everywhere, in every moment of our life. But mostly confidence helps in marketing in its wide meaning. When we are sure of our arguments and thing that we want to sell it's almost like we've already convinced one person - us. Thinking that way makes us more reliable, open and relax.
