<h3>1. Remind them of tax deductions</h3>
<p>You contacted the decision maker. They are about to close, but they are still holding back. It's frustrating, but you can encourage them by reminding them that they can use your product or service as a business expense.</p>
<h3>2. Offer discounts / special offers</h3>
<p>This should first be checked and approved by the sales managers, but one of the ways to meet the holiday quota is to offer a discount. You can also combine offers and special discounts. Is not it a hell of a deal?</p>
<p>People like to do business. They also like to feel they win, even if it saves them money in the short term. Special discounts and offers can make the hesitant shopper more willing to spend. They will think they are getting a market they can not pass up. You can not have the same offers after the holidays.</p>
<h3>3. Persuade</h3>

Coach your representatives and tell them to remind prospects and prospects that the first quarter of the New Year is fast approaching. Chances are, they decided what their great efforts for next year are going to be. Tell them that your product or service can really help them set goals for the new year.

4. Stay like this

To reach the sales quota, the only thing you can do is sometimes to continue to fend off and hit hard on the phones. Tax deductions and special discounts will not reduce it. All you have left is the desire not to be defeated.

To exceed the vacation quota, encourage your sales representatives to persevere and continue dialing until you find those who are not too busy or too distracted to buy now. Focus on those who are most promising to close now and be persistent.
