Help Them Overcome Sales Presentation Jitters
Anxiety is a natural reaction to a stressful or uncomfortable situation. Our bodies are anticipating some form of danger and are preparing for a challenge, leaving us with a higher heart rate, a headache, sweaty palms, or a dry mouth. If you are working with salespeople who suffer from “presentation jitters,” here are some tips that can help them calm down and get through it, while becoming more efficient.
- Practice, practice, practice. Many salespeople think they can skip this step. Don’t let them do it. They should rehearse a presentation many times and in different positions – standing, sitting, and so on. The more they mix it up, the more comfortable they will feel when they get to the meeting. Another helpful tip is to have them record themselves while giving the presentation. Play it back to discover any areas that need more work.
- Get there early. Sales reps should give themselves plenty of time to relax and get accustomed to their presentation space before they have to speak. They should spend some time in the room. Practice with the microphone, if they plan to use one, as well as the lighting.
- Meet and greet.Chatting with people before a presentation makes us seem more friendly and likeable. Instead of shifting around nervously, try standing still. Ask questions and make note of the answers. They may inspire you to weave unique material into a sales pitch.
- Don’t panic. When we’re nervous, we often talk too fast and, when we realize what is happening, we panic even more. Sales reps should smile often; it will show enthusiasm and confidence and calm them down. Use pauses in the presentation and work in a story or two to make the exchange more conversational and friendly.
