A common and rightful complaint from many business owners is, “I hate selling, it makes me feel slimy.” Good for you because you should never have to sell your customers or clients on anything. Your prospects should CHOOSE to use your services, or buy your product because they want to. Them wanting to choose you is the thrust behind this article.
Rules of Educating
- Change your verbiage from selling to serving
- Ask questions
- Determine what the person’s problem is
- Create a clear-cut well-defined specific plan of how you will solve that problem
- Educate about how your services will solve their problem
- Compare and contrast the benefits of using your services vs. the penalties that they will incur if they don’t
- Always make the words that come out of your mouth about the other person and never about yourself. Use words like you, they and them; instead of I, and me
- Try and use independent referenced data instead of you stating your opinion
- Create different educational forums-websites, newsletters, lectures,webinars, articles, etc.
- Know the end result of what you are looking to have the person do with their new-found education
Once you have educated your prospect, give them choices of how to move forward. Make the choices about THEM not you. Serve, Serve, Serve, and watch your business grow.
