    Post Man vs Woman - Marketing Strategies

    When you sell to a woman compare to a man there's explosive differences that you never thought of.

    When it comes to selling a different approach should be taken when selling products or services to a man in comparison with a woman. Simply because both of them think very differently and for this reason, their decisions should be influenced by different approaches.

    For instance, when a man decides to purchase a car he looks for the newest model, speed, mileage, etc. However when a woman goes out to purchase a car she will often select a car depending on color and fancy shape. She will be interested in whether there is enough space to store her necessities and if it makes her look good. Because their psychologies differ a great deal, they should be persuaded to purchase a product using different methods.

    Presentation is also extremely important. The salesperson talking to a male customer doesn't have to focus much on looks and cleanliness. It's okay if he doesn't have necessary documents available and that his sleeves are rolled up.

    But when the same salesperson is talking to a female client, he should be spotless from head to toe. He should comb his hair appropriately, have manicured nails and even his shoes should be well-polished. The salesperson should be prepared with all the necessary documents before hand and shouldn't go rushing towards the customer.

    Words should be spoken with extra care in front of a female customer. Women are better listeners and they will evaluate every spoken word. A lot of emotion should be involved when talking because women tend to be drawn to emotions immediately.

    For instance when selling clothes to a lady, tell her that the garment enhances her looks and will easily go from day to evening if need be. Pick a garment for her and ask her to give it a try. The customer will be appreciative and in turn will take less time to buy the product. Seventy-five percent of the sale is made for you if she is quickly won over emotionally.

    The next important point is to never stop talking in front of a female customer. The moment the salesperson stops talking, she will start thinking seriously about the product and will start evaluating every detail of it. This gives her time to reconsider purchasing it. Keep in mind that women are capable of multi-tasking. They will be able to listen as well as read the product details at the same time. So keep her involved in several things at a time.

    Men on the other hand do not naturally have the talent of multi-tasking. If a male client gets involved with something else, stop speaking right away because he will be most likely unable to focus on both things and it will lead him into a confused state, which will keep him form making a purchase.

    Another thing to consider is, it’s not always a good idea to have a woman salesperson work with a male client. Women tend to talk a lot and men are usually commonly known to be bad listeners. The female salesperson will go on and on about the merchandise and the man will just nod his head without getting any message. They will not appropriately express whether they are getting the point or not.

    On the other hand, a woman client can easily express how much she has followed and won't be afraid to ask appropriate questions. Even if she doesn't speak it out, her facial expressions will tell it all. So when a salesperson is interacting with a female customer, he or she should watch out for the client’s expressions. If she shows any state of confusion or dislike, try taking a different approach.

    Well as you can see there is definitely a difference between selling to a man verses selling to a woman. Take the time to learn them and you will be sure to close more sales for your business.

    Do you make this stuff up yourself or do you read it in some eZine?

    However when a woman goes out to purchase a car she will often select a car depending on color and fancy shape. She will be interested in whether there is enough space to store her necessities and if it makes her look good.
    My wife & daughters sure don't like being treated as if they are stupid.

    But when the same salesperson is talking to a female client, he should be spotless from head to toe. He should comb his hair appropriately, have manicured nails and even his shoes should be well-polished.
    Uh huh, so you buy vegetables from Woolworths and not the local green grocer.

    A lot of emotion should be involved when talking because women tend to be drawn to emotions immediately.
    So madam, does this two speed, hammer action drill make you feel tingly all over?

    Seventy-five percent of the sale is made for you if she is quickly won over emotionally.
    My G_D but you look so cute holding that new garden rake.

    No we can't have that because she might just figure out that our products are crap!

    Men on the other hand do not naturally have the talent of multi-tasking. If a male client gets involved with something else, stop speaking right away because he will be most likely unable to focus on both things and it will lead him into a confused state, which will keep him form making a purchase.
    So, don't talk to him while he is driving (remove the car radio because Cape Talk might be on) because his brain can't process listening and driving simultaneoulsly.

    Another thing to consider is, it’s not always a good idea to have a woman salesperson work with a male client.

    Gino, what do you do for a living?
    Tell me more about yourself.

    The point that I am tried to make (in a very round about way) is that the writing comes across as being patronizing. Women are not stupid (yes ok, some are, but then so are some men). Look, women and men are different and they look at the world differently, but one needs to be subtle when it comes to marketing.

    The thing with cars - many, many men know squat about the mechanicals of cars, but they sure like the shape of the car and the way they think the car makes them look. Take the shape of a BMW's nose - come on, now what does that remind you of in a very subtle way.

    Cleanliness - difficult one, its kinda hard for people to be super clean in certain environments, but there are envirronments where it counts - You don't want a dirty dental rep.

    Selling clothes to a lady - all people like to feel special, the trick is to really see the specialness in the person and not to fake some textbook line. A bit like when your best friends wife shows off her new dress and she's all smiles but you think it looks really bad - you can stll find something to say to make her feel good.

    Men on the other hand do not naturally have the talent of multi-tasking - This is a super myth - men fly helicopters, fighter aircraft, wage wars etc. The point is that men task switch very quickly - men tend to simply discard a topic from the task switcher when it no longer holds their interest. I do many tasks simultaneously (the thing is that the tasks are switched very fast, being ADD I tend to lose track of tasks and switch the wrong ones out by switching the wrong ones in - I tend to switch out any task at random when something catches my interest - this is why I would walk into a room to do something, get totally caught up in something else and remember about the original task 2 days later)

    Never stop talking in front of a female cutomer - Be very careful - Maria Ramos is a female customer, so is Helen Ziller, and many more very intelligent people.

    Another thing to consider is, it’s not always a good idea to have a woman salesperson work with a male client. - I disagree with this - It is great to work with a female salesperson who knows her stuff. My wife is a heavy current electrical technician and she sure knows the industry.

    Look, I see things the way I do, am I right, am I wrong, I don't know, but I do know that one should treat every customer with humility and respect and one should first let the customer expose their strengths and weaknesses before taking a particular sales tactic.

    When it comes to marketing it is more difficult because you have make assumptions about your customers - I still think that one needs to be very subtle with marketing to women - its a bit like flirting

    Rant rant rant

    One of my pet peeves is when people post recycled/pre-written (by somebody else) content as their own, regardless of whether or not they have the rights to do so.

    I feel that one of the most important things about marketing is establishing a relationship with potential customers by being yourself. People like to talk to people (knowledgeable ones), not money-whores spitting out generic sales blurb.

    This is especially true with internet marketing. Establish yourself as an expert in your field by posting your own views, reflected by your own personality. Gain the trust of your potential customers. People generally don't like to feel like all you're after is their money, even if that is all you are after.

    In fact, I'm perfectly happy to turn away a customer if I can't provide what I think is best for him. I would rather refer him to a competitor who CAN provide that particular product than spout out sales garbage to make him spend money on a product/service that isn't quite what he needs.

    And you know what, it works. I end up with far more repeat business and referrals, hence growing my business in the long term. Rather one customer returning 10 times than ten unhappy customers only buying something once, I think.

    Enough ranting, though. I think you just need to be careful about WHAT content you're copy pasting on forums etc. Some of the ladies (and men) on this forum might be quite irritated by "your" views on sales to men vs women.

    Man vs Woman

    Hi Adrian & Mark

    Adrian you raise some very good points in the Marketing World
    I updated my profile to let you know about myself.....

    Women are not stupid (yes ok, some are, but then so are some men).
    In my opinion woman are much more emotional stronger than man and are gifted with a six sense. They can absorb much more pain than a man. An example : A man can physical abuse woman, a thousands times ...but a man will cry on his knees for forgiveness...A woman have also the sense of smell,see can smell a man when he enter the door...There millions of invisible differences that a woman kept a secret... I open up recently a discussion in WSO about almost the same scenario. You can see it here WSO

    When it comes to the Internet Marketing World ,the most online shoppers are woman compare to man. Woman adore shopping..Mmmm "That why my wallet stay empty "

    To out-class your competitors online,the finer details ( of woman vs man Marketing Strategies ) must be use.

    Thanks ! for your honest review Adrian

    Mark

    One of my pet peeves is when people post recycled/pre-written (by somebody else) content as their own, regardless of whether or not they have the rights to do so.
    I strongly agree with you,YOU must be yourself when dealing with a customer. And YES ! I use LEGAL PLR CONTENT...(woman vs man) is unique and it's written by me.

    This is especially true with internet marketing. Establish yourself as an expert in your field by posting your own views, reflected by your own personality. Gain the trust of your potential customers. People generally don't like to feel like all you're after is their money, even if that is all you are after.
    You have a good marketing strategy
    My biggest Secret to deal with people, that there's only one way on this Planet you can have what you want ...that's give the customers what they want...You provide the need to give your customers BAFOKKE SHIRTS..Right !

    My customers want a instant need to their problems online and I give it to them by PLR products..World Wide people use PLR products and it's market are very small in South Africa. I write unique content and sell it to my customers in packages.

    Some of the ladies (and men) on this forum might be quite irritated by "your" views on sales to men vs women.
    When you scroll up to my UNIQUE ARTICLE ..you can see a adorable lady appreciate my article, by a thank you

    I apologise when this article touch you...

    I'm sorry but if that article was written by you then I'm a monkey's uncle.

    I'm well aware that you can obtain content on the net which you are free to use and credit yourself as the author. That still doesn't mean you wrote it.

    Ok then lets add to Mark's observations:

    If the contect was written by you, then what did you base your observations regarding the differences between marketing to men and women on? Did you do some form of research?
