So you’re thinking of starting a career as a high ticket closer, huh?
Well if you’re looking for high-earning potential, flexibility, and a job where you control how much you make — it might just be for you.
The world of high ticket closing is an exciting one. It involves selling high-priced products and services, and it offers great opportunities for substantial income.
But don’t get the wrong idea…
High ticket closing is not a get-rich-quick strategy–it requires a specialized skill set and a different approach to traditional sales tactics.
It’s a high-value, in-demand skill in a competitive field.
But, if you’re driven and committed to grinding, high ticket closing can be an unbelievably lucrative career.
I’m living proof. I went from a bartender to making $30k/month as a closer.
And in this article, I’ll show you how to get started on this potentially life-changing journey even if you have no experience in sales.
How to Get Into High Ticket Closing With No Experience
Step 1. Invest in Education and Sales Training
The fact is, with big sales…the process is just different. You’re going to need a different skill set than you may think.
So to succeed in high ticket closing, you need to invest in education and training.
Thankfully, there are all sorts of great resources.
Generally, if you haven’t read the classic sales books, do that first. The Sales Bible by Jeffrey Gitomer and How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie are two great places to start.
Influence by Robert Cialdini is also, in my opinion, one of the greatest books a budding salesperson can read. Although it isn’t directly about sales, it is about the ultimate objective of sales—persuasion. You learn the principles of why people make decisions and change their minds.
Another fantastic way to get free training is subscribing to blogs and YouTube channels dedicated to sales.
You can also fast-track your success by investing in courses and training programs like the Remote Closing Academy that give you a proven, step-by-step system to follow (which includes all the training you need and shows you how to execute everything).
Step 2. Find The Right Offer To Sell
Yes, we all like to think that we can get so good at sales that we could “sell ice to an Eskimo.”
But have you ever stopped to think why you would ever sell ice to an Eskimo?
Why not sell fire to an Eskimo instead? You’d have a way easier time.
My point: Put yourself in positions where you’re more likely to succeed, by having a great offer to sell. Before you take a job, you need to research the market and identify whether the thing you’d be selling is actually in demand.
When filtering through offers, make sure to pick a validated offer. Never choose a company that hasn’t seen success selling its product and is still testing the waters.
Pick offers that have been sold at least a dozen times so you can have enough data indicating you can see success in closing deals.
Another HUGE thing to consider is whether the company you’re considering has qualified inbound lead flow.
If you have no one to sell to, you won’t make any money as a high ticket closer. So, always verify that the company you are considering working for has a lead flow you can utilize.
Choosing the right offer to sell is crucial to success in high ticket closing. Look for products or services you believe in, that provide value to your customers, and that offer high commission rates.
Step 3. Choose Your Path: Appointment Setter or Closer?
High ticket sales have a much longer lifespan than other types of sales. They can take months to get across the finish line. Because of that, there are many parts to the process — and that process has been broken down into 2 different jobs.
There are two main paths you can choose–appointment setting or closing.
What’s the difference between the two?
An appointment setter is responsible for scheduling appointments with potential clients, while a closer is responsible for closing the sale.
And you may still earn well–depending on how many high-quality appointments you book, it’s possible to earn anywhere from $5k to $15k per month.
And this is where you can make the big bucks. Many closers can make upwards of $20k–even $30-40k–if they are committed to succeeding.
This makes most people want to skip setting and go straight to closing.
But this can be a big mistake. While it’s possible to get a closing gig without any experience, it’s much easier to start as a setter.
In fact, most closers get started as setters and then move into high ticket closing after a few months.
This allows them to gain some experience, learn from other successful closers on the team, and prove themselves.
And you can still make much better money than most jobs.
You don’t necessarily have to choose one or the other, but I recommend choosing which one you want to pursue initially. Again, I highly recommend starting as a setter. Some people even figure out they love setting and decide not to become a closer at all.
That’s okay–it’s totally up to the earning potential and lifestyle you’re looking for.
Pick which role you ultimately want, then become great at it.
Step 4. Listen And Ask Questions: Never Stop Learning!
High ticket closing requires continuous learning and improvement. You need to keep up with the latest trends and techniques in your industry to remain relevant and competitive.
The truth is: If you’re not listening, you’re probably not improving.
Great salespeople listen well–both during sales calls and while receiving advice or mentoring.
So regardless of which path you ultimately pick, enter your new sales job ready to listen and learn.
If you actively listen and ask questions, there will be plenty of learning opportunities and you can shorten your learning curve.
People who usually stay stuck as setters or don’t see the income they want are simply not curious enough. They aren’t looking for each and every opportunity to improve.
Don’t make that mistake.
Always ask for feedback from experienced closers and continue to refine your skills.
