Big ticket products and services -- what are they? You see big ticket items all of the time. That one-hour photo processing machine at the drug store was sold by a salesperson. The car wash that you go to is a big robotic system that was a big sale for someone and many of the components of that system (e.g. the dryers) were big ticket items when they were sold to the contractor who erected the car wash. Characteristics we find in the sale of big ticket items include. The products or services are of relatively high price. The duration of the selling process is relatively long and consists of several steps. The duration of the process that buyers go through is relatively long. The buyers are usually looking to purchase against a set of specifications - they are looking for a solution. And so there are usually steps in the selling process to learn about and get agreement on the needs and wants of the buyers . There is often a team of people on the buying side. Sometimes the salesperson needs help from others (team sales). The products often need explaining. There is usually competition to deal with. They are rarely sold from a retail store.The complexity and price of such offerings justifies the cost and selling time of a field sales force.
