One Simple Secret to Increasing Sales
So, diving right in… I know we all are excited about creating marketing ideas and, let’s be honest, we’re all wanting to call forward NEW CLIENTS!
Now, what I used to experience early on (and I bet you’ve felt it, too!), is this awkward tension when it’s time to make the offer. It can make us stumble over our words and, sadly, sometimes we might even lose the sale!
So, let me help you out today. I’ve got this one SIMPLE secret that can boost your closing ratio:
Ask your burning question… then zip it! 🤐 Silence is golden, especially when you’re at the crucial moment of asking for the sale.
We’ve all been there, “Would you like to move forward? Because I think you would do great, and blah, blah, blah”… and then we tumble down the rabbit hole of over-explaining!
Instead, ask your pivotal question and then, simply pause. When you keep talking, you are showing a lack of confidence and belief in what you are presenting, so you feel the need to defend what you are pitching.
I’m not saying the benefits are not important. You should talk about the benefits of your product or service BEFORE you present your offer.
Ask the question. Stop talking.
Let THEM answer.
- It doesn’t matter how much silence happens between you asking them the question and them speaking up.And if you are nervous about your pricing (which is another topic entirely), think about the VALUE of what you are offering, and BELIEVE in your product/service as a SOLUTION to their challenges and goals.Here are some more tips on getting the sale:
