It’s a common misconception that the product you sell is the most important factor when it comes to your business. In reality, how you sell your product is far more important. If you can’t sell your product, no one will buy it. In this article, we will discuss some tips on how to improve your sales skills and increase your conversion rate, and how the MoneyDolly fundraising platform can help.


  1. Understand Your Product
  2. Build Your Delivery
  3. Always be Learning
  4. Focus on Your Customers’ Needs
  5. Ask for Help!


The first step to selling anything is understanding your product. You need to know what it is, what it does, and how it can benefit your customer. This creates a believability for others when they hear you speaking about your product, or selling it. You must know the ins and outs of it.  Once you have a firm grasp on this information, you can start crafting your sales pitch.


Next, you need to build a strong delivery. This means being able to effectively communicate your product to potential customers. This means creating multiple ways that target customers will understand your product – which may differ from the way you understand it. Remember, you only have a few seconds to make a first impression, so make it count!


Another very important tip is to always be learning. Most markets and industries are constantly changing, and you need to keep up with the latest trends. This means reading sales blogs, listening to podcasts, and attending webinars. By staying up-to-date on the latest sales techniques, you’ll be able to sell your product more effectively to your target customer.

Customers’ Needs

Another tip is to focus on your customer’s needs. It’s important to understand what they are looking for and how your product can help them. People want to know their needs are met and that they’re taken care of. By understanding their needs, you’ll be able to sell them the right product and increase your conversion rate.

Ask for HELP!

Finally, don’t be afraid to ask for help. If you’re struggling to sell your product, there are plenty of resources available to help you. For youth group fundraising, for example, there are platforms like MoneyDolly, consultants, and even sales training available. By getting help from experts, you’ll be able to improve your sales skills and close more deals!



The takeaway here is that your product is not nearly as important as how you sell it. If you want to improve your sales skills and close more deals, focus on the tips we discussed. Stay up-to-date on the latest sales techniques, focus on your customer’s needs, and don’t be afraid to ask for help. By following these tips, you’ll be able to improve your sales skills and increase your conversion rate! Also, check out this article with tips on how many fundraisers yo run a year.
