Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

You must be reading this article because you want to learn how to sell cell phones. But, wait a minute... First, it is important to know that the mobile phone industry has got a lot of other exciting benefits to offer you, apart from the benefit of being able to make and receive calls. I mean, one of these benefits is that you can dive into the market and take your own fair share of the profits in the mobile telephony business. I am not asking you to set up your own mobile service company, though you can if you have the means, but you can actually decide to sell cell phone plans and earn commissions by so doing from the mobile carriers. This article is all about educating you on what you need in order to know how to sell cell phones. And not just knowing how to sell cell phones, but also making your customers come back for more.

First and foremost, it is vital you build a good rapport with your potential customers. You should leave no stone unturned in your quest to imprint your brand in the minds of your customers. Once you can earn customers' confidence, then, it is much easier for you to seal off deals and generate more sales.

You must be polite and introduce yourself to your prospective customers. Start off your conversation by asking for the specific cell phone needs of your prospective customers. You need to go the extra mile to find out the number of minutes a customer uses, the locations they travel to, those they call most frequently, their fondness for surfing the internet, how often they send text messages per day. You should not bore your prospective customers with the above and other related questions you may have in mind. It is expected you add little humor, speak with them in a smooth conversational manner which shows that you truly care. The moment you make your potential customers feel that you are only after their money, they will trust you less. Additionally, if you are going to be selling primarily online, you can use the same techniques in the text that is on your website. You are you, let them remember that! So, let their needs be your top priority; money will come later!

Look for a problem. Most customers will usually have at least one issue with their existing cell phone plans. So, it is pertinent you find out what the issue is. That way, you will be able to get a good plan that can fit them well. You can present one or two good options to the customer. Then, explain the benefits and features of using the plans and answer any questions that may follow. When you sell cell phones, you want the final to be 100% final! Once everything goes fine, you can close the sale with a good phrase like "let's start on this plan now". Think of your choice of words here, so it does not sound like you were "dismissing" your customer.

Once the sale is closed, then fill out the needed paperwork with the phone carrier to complete the activation process. Then, thank your customer and give them a parting gift, if need be, so they could have your business in their mind for some time to come.

Lastly, do not pressure your customer. Listen to their needs and provide a solution that fits their needs. It is one of the crucial rules to follow if you want to know how to sell cell phones and make money.

If you are looking for a way to sell cell phones that you already own, maybe a used one, a venue like eBay may be best. I say this because it will keep track of your good selling habits when you sell cell phones or other items which will help you in the future.
