10 Tips to Use Finance in Sales

Many sales are lost when the equipment sales rep does not offer financing and leaves it up to the customer to figure out a way to pay for the equipment. If their bank says no or they are not aware that you offer a solution that is not only competitive, but tailored to the equipment, you lose control and ultimately force them to reconsider their options.

This loss of control may also cause them to entertain options or proposals from your competition and you’ve opened the door to potentially discounting price or losing the sale all together because you did not control the process from beginning to end.
