Abstract :

The Cosmetic sale is a fine balance of education and continuous relationship-building. Psychology plays into every sale, but in the cosmetic industry, â�?�?Thinking like a shrinkâ�? to connect with the patient on an emotional level must occur to connect naturally through empathy. Examining the emotional drivers through a step-by-step consultation technique can also allow you to address and manage priorities, â�?�?Red flagsâ�?�?, manage expectations, and of course, close the consultation. But it doesnâ�?�?t stop there. Always consulting through subsequent touch-points is necessary to build trust, anticipate needs, reinforce your message and mission, up-sell, and set up continuous sales. Consultation techniques surrounding the first-time consult including credentialing, extracting and exploring emotional drivers, managing expectations, avoiding problems by addressing â�?�?red flagsâ�?�? proactively, approaching continuous sales, and reinforcement through subsequent touch-points are proven leads to long-term, sustainable patient relationships and sales.
