Learn to close and you will never be without work or without money! The most powerful arsenal of closes ever! This book over 120 Closes includes: 31 Money Closes, 17 Time Related Closes, 3 Pressure Closes, 3 Agreement Closes, 8 Decision Closes, and another 64 of the most creative closes you will ever find in one book! Financial "Closing" is the final step in the pursuit of ANY goal. This thing called closing is not just something that sales people do but something that applies to every person. Nothing truly happens until you are able to engender the support, energy and resources of others. As harsh as it may seem the close is what separates those who have from those who have from those who don't have. This critically and vital ability is what differentiates the dreamer from the exceptional individual that makes dreams come true. The world is filled with people who have grand dreams of new products or ideas that will change the world that never become reality simply because the dreamer couldn't close others on supporting their dream. The world is abundant with grand ideas and big dreams and short on people who can close others on funding, supporting and getting behind them! It is the ability to close that makes a difference more than any other skill you will learn in life! Grant Cardone's book, The Closer's Survival Guide, is not a theory of closing the deal, but exactly HOW to close the deal including the 20 major rules of closing and over 120 exact closes that you can use every day! "He's done it again! This book is an Encyclopedia of information that will put you in a position to close any situation, handle any objection and negotiate like a pro." - Ron Palmer, DCH Group

- E-book of Grant's book
Does the product function like it should?
- Yes it has a number of different tactics on how to close sales and it doesn't have much fluff. Grant tries to explain every point and how to overcome obstacles with these closes
What’s good about them?
- Grant goes over almost every single possible situation that has to do with closing. If you're an aggressive type of salesman who wants to close calls and needs some advice on how to overcome obstacles this is the right way to do it.
What’s bad about them?
- I like Grant's super motivational attitude and ability to get his message across but I don't feel like I'm the type of salesman his book is speaking to. He has an aggressive style, i like to build relationship with my clients more than anything, so some of the stuff works and some doesn't.
Who would i recommend it to?
Anyone who's in sales and wants to read all the diffferent types of closes available, different scenarios you might run into to overcome objections. This is a good book for anyone who's starting sales or even been in sales for a few years but haven't read more about it.
Any other notes?
- This is a good book, i would recommend this to sales people of any experience. After reading this, it will re-enforce all the closes you already know about but at the same time it will expose you to different ones you may never thought of. The more knowledge you have, the better.
I didn't start listening until December 2014. But when I did start I could not stop. I went through the 180 chapters at least 3 times that month. The last time I had a notebook and pen. Guess what, I became a Closer. In March / April 2015 I was hired as Director of Operations of a Nationwide Home Improvement company. In October 2015, I quit to start another company with a partner.
The bottom line is I owe what I've accomplished to God and The Closer's Survival Guide. Like Ben Gay's THE CLOSERS, there is not junk or fluff. All substance!
Im actually purchasing a hard copy of the book now. I've never actually read it, only listened.
If you've ever run out of material to overcome objections, this is for you. If you've ever wondered if there are more than the couple closes your manager gave you, this is for you. If you've ever had trouble getting a deal closed, this is for you. You need this book to get your head straight and to get you closing. This is to be read/listened to multiple times and it's highly recommended. Get the book so we can get you closing more, that is what you want isn't it? If you're not going to do it for yourself, do it for me.
I was looking for material that would help overcome objections, get past complaints and stalls, and be more persistent and assertive with the close. That's what I got.
Closing is another sale in itself and this has a lot of insight. You will get some gems in here to make your own and it is a great tool for additional closes for you and your business.
Everyones style is different, and I can appreciate his for what it's worth and have had success with some of them already.
But read this book through your own lens and be critical of the information you receive. A lot of 'hard closes' don't take into account the potential for chargebacks, poor CSI or (gasp!) the decent thing to do. Personally, if refusing to resort to the 'beg close' makes me slightly lesser of a salesman but preserves just a tad of dignity - I'm ok with that.
Otherwise the material (and more importantly, the method) is excellent. Study this book and you WILL improve your game. Just be willing to overlook repetitiveness, some grammatical errors and the occasional hint of ridiculousness.
