These sales closing phrases will give your team the boost they need to move the sale along. They can be added to your email sequence templates and personalized for each prospect.
1. "Do you see how [COMPANY NAME/PRODUCT] can help solve [PAIN POINTS]?"
Why this works: You’re making a clear connection between their pain points and the fact that your company/product is the solution.
2. "I know you said ideally you’d have a solution in place by [DATE]. Working backward from that date, and accounting for implementation and onboarding, we'd need to have a signed contract by [DATE]. Can you commit to signing by then?"
Why this works: You’re not leaving any room for ambiguity. You’re giving them a clear deadline to close the deal so they can have their solution up and running by their desired date.
3. "I’m excited to start working together! If there are no other questions or concerns, I’ll go ahead and send over the contract today to [SIGNING AUTHORITY]."
Why this works: This puts pressure to move things forward. If they have concerns, you’re forcing them to tell you about them, and if not, there shouldn’t be anything else holding them back.
4. "If I can get [PROSPECT’S REQUEST] approved, are there any other hurdles to getting you to move forward?"
Why this works: You’re committing to give them what they want, which should satisfy them and lead to a closed sale.
5. "It seems like [COMPANY NAME/PRODUCT] will help your team meet their goals. Is there any reason why you wouldn’t want to move forward?"
Why this works: You’re encouraging them to voice any concerns they may have, and if they don’t have any, you can start concluding the sale.
6. "If [OBJECTION] wasn’t a factor, would you be ready to get started?"
Why this works: You’re letting them know that you understand their objection and that you’re willing to negotiate/compromise to move forward with the deal.
7. "Are you thinking of going with X Tier or Y Tier?"
Why this works: You’re forcing them to choose between the different options you have available, which makes it easier to discuss the next steps.
8. "If we implement by X date, I estimate you can start seeing ROI by March. That means we’d need to close by X date. Is that enough time for you to make a decision?"
Why this works: You’re moving the sale along while reducing some of the risks by bringing up ROI.
9. "I know X is a huge priority for your team next quarter. If we close by X date, this solution will help you meet your goals."
Why this works: You’re reiterating that they will have a successful next quarter if they invest in your product/service by a certain date, which nudges them toward closing the sale.
10. "Let’s set up a trial so your team can get a hands-on experience with [COMPANY NAME/PRODUCT]."
Why this works: This is a casual and friendly approach to closing a deal, and it gives prospects the impression that there isn’t much risk involved by agreeing to it.
11. "We came up with your preferred arrangement. Let’s schedule a meeting at [TIME] on [DAY] and start with the execution."
Why this works: This shows that you’ve solved whatever concern that was holding your prospect back and it is now time to finalize the sale.
12. "Do you think it might work? I can send over some paperwork this afternoon if everything looks good on your end."
Why this works: The fact that you can send over the paperwork that very same day gives the impression that closing the sale will be seamless and easy for everyone.
13. “Is this a more profitable approach that fits your budget? If yes, I’m more than glad to make follow-up plans.”
Why this works: You’re showing that you’re flexible and have made arrangements to fit their budget. And since the budget concern has been resolved, you can move forward with the deal.
14. “Based on what we've discussed, can we agree this is a good fit for your needs? If so, I can get the final proposal to you by tomorrow."
Why this works: It seeks confirmation on the fit for their needs, and if affirmative, provides a quick turnaround time for the next steps, emphasizing efficiency and momentum.
15. “Given the benefits we've outlined, shall we take the next step and finalize the details?"
Why this works: This phrase moves the conversation towards action by assuming that the benefits have been understood and accepted.
16. “How does this sound for a plan of action? If you agree, I can draft our agreement today."
Why this works: Offering a 'plan of action' can make the prospect feel like they're about to embark on a journey with a roadmap, and the prompt offer to draft the agreement shows readiness and enthusiasm.
17. “Can we lock in this decision today to ensure we meet your project timeline?"
Why this works: It creates a sense of urgency and shows that you're considerate of their time and project schedule.
18. “If we can resolve your main concerns, can we proceed to the next stage?"
Why this works: This closing line is designed to directly address any remaining barriers without being too pushy.
19 “Should we pencil in a start date, so your team can begin experiencing the benefits as soon as possible?"
Why this works: It's a softer close that assumes the sale and also communicates the benefits of starting sooner rather than later.
20. ”Shall we move forward with the plan as discussed? I'm ready to make it official whenever you are."
Why this works: This phrase communicates preparedness and a collaborative spirit, suggesting that you're both on the same page.
21. ”Do you feel comfortable with the proposal? If so, I can secure your spot in our schedule now."

Why this works: This shows respect for the prospect's decision-making process while subtly pressing for a timeline, which can help prevent the sale from stalling.
