You’ll also want to ask positive questions to close the sale and guide them through the selling process.

It is important that you don’t make it your goal to sell your client the most products you can sell right away. Satisfy your customers with the products they need now and look for other opportunities that will help them in the future. They will feel more relaxed, less defensive and more like to become a repeat customer. Always, always remember you overall goal is to build customer service for life!
