Dan’s Insights

 

Dan King CTT

 

If you’re selling something and over and over again, you’re getting a no, odds are you’re not using the customer’s language to describe what you’re selling – you’re using yours. Ask prospective buyers to do quick market research calls with you… don’t call them sales calls. Ask them deep questions to unearth what they really want like “If I were to give you an hour of free consulting, what would you want from it?” or “What do you lie in bed at night thinking about?” Odds are you’ll feel a little afraid of offending people. But bond with people first and ask these questions despite your fear. People will open up to you if you do this properly. Now, take notes. Word for word. And use their language when you’re next selling.
