How Do You Approach a Stranger to Sell?

When you’re selling, whether it’s a product, a service, or yourself, you’ll need to talk to people you don’t know. This can be daunting, but there are some tried and true methods for approaching strangers.

Make sure you have a clear understanding of what it is you’re selling and why someone would want to buy it. Put yourself in a positive mindset and approach the person with confidence. Be clear and concise when explaining what it is you’re selling and why they should buy it from you.

In general, when starting a business conversation, it is important to greet the other person with a good greeting. This shows that you are interested in talking to them and want to make a good impression. You can also learn something about the person from reviewing their LinkedIn profile. This can give you an idea of what they are interested in and how you can best approach them.
