By Travis Beachy
I whole-heartedly believe that sales isn’t just a job, it’s an art form. As a sales professional in the shed industry, you have the power to help people find the perfect shed for their needs and create a positive experience that they will never forget. In this blog, we’ll explore four key principles that can help you become the best shed salesperson you can be.
Practice Sales Until You Can’t Get It Wrong
The first step to becoming a top-notch shed salesperson is to practice, practice, practice. You can’t expect to be great at sales overnight. It takes time, effort, and dedication to hone your craft. But if you commit to practicing your sales pitch and techniques every day, you will see results.
Set aside time each day to practice your pitch, and record yourself giving it. Watch the video and identify areas where you can improve. Make adjustments and keep practicing until you can deliver your pitch flawlessly. And remember, the key to success is not just memorizing your pitch but being able to adapt it to each customer’s unique needs.
Go Above the Status Quo of Just a Basic Sales Person
Don’t settle for being just a basic salesperson. Strive to be the best. This means going above and beyond for your customers. Take the time to really get to know their needs and provide them with solutions that are tailored to them. It’s not just about selling sheds; it’s about creating an experience that they will never forget.
One way to go above and beyond is to offer a complimentary design consultation to your customers. This can help them visualize their new shed and feel more confident in their purchase. Additionally, you can offer financing options, delivery and installation services, and even follow-up calls to ensure that they are satisfied with their purchase.
Maintain a High Level Throughout the Whole Shed Sales Process
The shed sales process doesn’t end when the customer signs on the dotted line. It’s important to maintain a high level of service throughout the entire process. This includes paying attention to their needs and following up with them after the sale.
Make sure you are available to answer any questions they may have, and keep them informed about the progress of their shed’s delivery and installation. And don’t forget to follow up with them after everything is complete to make sure they are happy with their purchase.
Be Better Today Than You Were Yesterday by Investing in Yourself
The final principle for becoming a top-notch shed salesperson is to invest in yourself. This means continuously learning and improving your skills. Attend industry events and seminars, read books on sales and customer service, and take online courses to expand your knowledge.

Becoming a top-notch shed salesperson doesn’t just happen by chance. It takes intentionality, time, effort, and dedication.
But by practicing your sales techniques, going above and beyond for your customers, maintaining a high level of service throughout the entire process, and investing in yourself, you can become the best shed salesperson you can be.
