A product is anything, desired or not, that a person or organization receives in an exchange. The basic goal of purchasing decisions is to receive the tangible and intangible benefits associated with a product. Tangible aspects include packaging, style, color, size, and features. Intangible qualities include service, the retailer’s image, the manufacturer’s reputation, and the social status associated with a product. An organization’s product offering is the crucial element in any marketing mix.
The role of the sales department is to communicate the features and benefits of these products to the target market. Salespeople can make sales dialogue interesting and understandable by developing and incorporating attention-getting sales aids/tools. Types of sales aids/tools include, anecdotes, comparisons, analogies, visual materials, electronic materials, and product demonstrations. Sales tools and visual aids afford the salesperson the capability to present information in a format best suited for the buyer’s communication and learning style. In addition, well-designed visual sales tools and aids maximize the effectiveness of a sales dialogue because they help salespeople capture and hold the buyer’s attention, and boost the buyer’s involvement and understanding. Finally, these tools and aids enhance recall and may increase the credibility of the salesperson’s claims.
