Golf Marketing and Golf Membership Sales Part 1

Golf course professional sales is the key to a successful business. A lot of golf course owners, golf professionals and general managers have a negative association towards sales. I understand that completely because what we stereotype as a salesperson is the fast talker in the cheap suit. Somebody that will say anything to get you to buy what they have just so they can get what they want. That is the furthest thing from what a professional salesperson does.

First of all, professional salespeople are great listeners. The only way you can sell something is by transferring your enthusiasm about your golf products and golf services to someone else and this can only be done by listening to what it is that excites the golfer. If you are not listening to the golfer you have no way of knowing what they want.

A salesperson is someone who can influence others in a way that helps them make a buying decision today. The only way that you can influence anyone is through knowledge. If you have more knowledge about a given subject and/or field and you can get people to listen to you, you can start to build a relationship to where the golfer respects you and you respect the golfer. Building a relationship with respect can only be done through listening; so being a good listener is paramount.

If you are going to try to influence golfers and sell them golf products and golf services, and get them to make a buying decision today, you must improve your listening and influencing skills. You will use these skills in every aspect of your life from raising your children to impressing your boss. Being a professional golf salesperson/a person of influence will benefit you in areas like managing employees, growing your golf course, being a leader in your community, etc. This is an invaluable tool that you will be able to draw on for the rest of your life.
