Personnel Selling P4 Demonstrate personnel selling skills and process in two different situations. 1. Explain how to communicate with customers. Carphone Warehouse- In Carphone Warehouse an employee obviously has to speak to the customers. In order to communicate with customers they have to speak clearly while talking to the customers, they have to use appropriate tone of voice, avoid jargon with external customers and they also have to make sure that body language gives them the same message. Listening skills is also important while communicating with the customers, they have to listen carefully to what a customer is saying. BSB Sky- BSB Sky, they normally deal through telephones, and in order to communicate with customers, while talking on the telephone they have to smile, which shows in the voice and makes you sound friendly. Using business-like greeting and attitude and concern is shown by verbal response and tone of voice. Another thing which is very important is clear voice and appropriate pace and doubly essential as gestures cannot be seen. 2. List and explain the different types of communication used by both businesses. Carphone Warehouse- Carphone Warehouse use different types of communication such as: * Pitch of Voice- This relates to how they sound, a low pitched voice is deep and gruff; a high pitched voice easily sounds shrill. For example in Carphone Warehouse while dealing with customers or presenting a product to customers they have to use the right pitch of voice which makes them sound more interesting and attracts customers. * The Pace- This relates to the speed at which they speak, they should never speak to quickly that their words run together. For example in Carphone Warehouse if a customer comes in and they say 'hey'uayt?' which is unlikely to be intelligible to anyone except their closest friends. If the information is complicated they should speak slowly but not to slow that everyone falls asleep or loses interest. ...read more.
