To successfully pitch anything be it yourself in a job interview or a new phone app to a tech giant communication is critical. But communication is formed of two parts and regardless of how well you may understand the person you are selling too, if they do not understand you then the deal may not go through. You probably know everything there is to know about your product but if you cannot get all those great selling points across clearly and in a way the client understands then it won’t work. Learning English in business can really make a difference when it comes to selling and getting your point across.
Even though this is mentioned above it is important to look at the other side of a sale. At various points in any business pitch the customer will want to ask some questions. Being able to understand and respond to these questions can make the difference between getting the sale and losing it. Having great English language skills will mean you are able to clearly understand any worries or questions the customer may have. You can then talk about them and offer suitable answers.
Being able to talk and listen are both useful and important parts of any business meeting but do not forget research! To really do well in business you need to know everything there is to know about your client or customer. Often the only way to do this is to research the. This could mean reading their website but also watching videos about what they do and more. Being able to understand English will certainly help if you are dealing with an English speaking client who’s website is in English and all their video content is too.
