How to Close the Deal with the Buyer and Seller

The best and only option to close the
deal with a buyer or a seller is to be
quick and prompt.
As a Seller:
you should be quick:
– in replying to the email queries
questions of prospective buyers
– In responding to phone calls (in case
they landed in your voicemail)
– In setting up the time to handover the
item, in case you are not offering
delivery service
– In case you are offering deliver
service, try to deliver the product as
soon as possible.
As a Buyer:
you should be quick enough to:
– Be in touch with the seller, if you
like the product
– Don’t wait or hold on your queries,
as the product or seller might not wait
for you
– Once the deal is finalized, try to buy
the product at the earliest possible
time and create a meeting with the
seller. Due to delay from your end,
the seller may end up delivering this
to someone else as well.
