The dealmaker close is essentially a quick, hard negotiation. It's particularly effective when used after an objection or when struggling to modify a proposal to fit the prospect's needs. The exchange goes something like this:

The prospect says, "I'm not sure I like this feature of your proposal."

So you reply, "If I take it out, can I have your order today?"
