Not the Only Game in Town:
When push comes to shove and multiple people are trying to earn the business of a company, some people truly revel in taking advantage of the situation. Purchasing departments just love to pit various vendors against each other so as to get the best deal on a product or service purchase. Car dealers have been using this one for years...
Sally Driver: "It's nice and I really like the color. I need to think about it for a couple of days. Can I get back to you on Friday?"
Larry Haggler: "Suit yourself... there was a couple who was just here looking at this car. They're coming back this afternoon to buy it. I wouldn't wait.
This is a very powerful tactic and is used by buyers and sellers alike. Sellers know that when supply is limited that they can charge higher prices and use competition. Just watch prices shoot up when the hottest automobile rolls off the assembly line. Buyers use it when multiple suppliers are submitting bids for a purchase.
To neutralize this tactic, we recommend asking questions to uncover information on what the competition is offering. Is the offering truly the same or are there differences? Are the terms similar? Are there any hidden fees? There is a great deal you can learn about what you're truly up against.
Telly: "I'm really surprised by this agreement. There are some terms that are a bit restrictive. You know, PressureChem's contract isn't as thick and their pricing is more attractive than what you are offering us."
Once the Competition tactic is used on you, utilize questions to get to the bottom of the other party's real or alleged concerns:
there any volume requirements to get better pricing?"
length contract are you being asked to sign to get that discount?"
they deliver the same product?"
type of testing has their product undergone?"
terms the same?"
you have to purchase support from them as well?"
