Three Key Reasons Why Your Online Sales Specialist Outshines AI

Sep 7, 2023 | By Jessie Suggs

Artificial Intelligence, commonly referred to as AI, has paved the way for computer systems to perform tasks that traditionally demand human intelligence, such as speech recognition, visual perception, decision-making, and language translation. However, it remains evident that the role of genuine human interaction, or human intelligence, cannot be replaced. Let’s be real; there's nothing quite like good old-fashioned human interaction.

Human cognitive abilities encompass a wide range of skills, including critical thinking, comprehending diverse experiences, understanding intricate concepts, employing logical reasoning, discerning patterns, deducing outcomes, retaining knowledge, and engaging in effective interpersonal communication. The natural ability of humans to engage in abstract reasoning, complemented by intricate emotions like self-awareness, enthusiasm, and ambition, allows them to excel in an overwhelmingly digitally saturated world.

So, why is your OSC far more beneficial than AI? It’s simple really: they’ve got the power to build relationships, comprehend customer requisites, and communicate with human understanding!

Cultivating Relationships: Building strong relationships with customers is crucial for lead capture and customer loyalty. Salespeople who can establish trust and rapport with their clients are more likely to secure appointments, sales, and referrals for future business.

Understanding Customer Needs: A key factor in successful sales is the ability to identify and understand customer needs. Sales professionals who take the time to listen to their customers, assess their requirements, and offer tailored solutions are more likely to close deals and satisfy their clients.

Effective Communication: Successful sales professionals rely on clear and persuasive communication. They must be adept at understanding customer needs, articulating the benefits of their products or services, and addressing any concerns or objections effectively. Being able to understand the customer’s “why” and providing a solution catered to their specific situation will always suit a customer's internal desire to feel “heard” and understood.

While AI has made significant strides in emulating human interactions, it still lacks the depth, emotional understanding, and adaptability that come naturally to us as humans. It can't quite capture all the emotions, deep thinking, and quick adaptability that we are born with. So, if you're an online sales pro, you work with an OSC, or you're the big boss in charge of one, remember this: in a world that's all about screens and non-stop info, the power of personal connection, real understanding, and genuine help can't be replaced by any fancy computer tricks. Our brains weren't built for this digital overload – that's why we're feeling the informational pressure. And guess what? Our customers out there are tired of all this tech stuff too. They want someone real to talk to, someone who gets them and who can really make things happen based on what they really want and need. 

That's where your OSC comes in – the human touch in a digital world.
