"Sell" the Benefits Your Work Provides – Not the Products & Services

"Sell" the Benefits Your Work Provides - Not the Products & Services

Most people buy on emotion: They want something that will make them feel good or take a problem, issue or pain away.

People (& businesses) buy products & services because they want the BENEFITS or RESULTS those products & services provide. Newlyweds don’t get excited because they “got a mortgage.” They get excited because a mortgage will allow them buy their first home.

Be able to quickly and clearly identify at least 2-3 benefits or results each product or service you offer provides a customer.

  • For a bank, mobile banking = 24/7 access; bank anywhere, anytime.
  • For a mechanic = smooth ride, every time
  • For a leadership team coach = cooperative, coordinated leadership

These are benefits the customers realize. They’re more enticing than the actual product or services.

  • For a bank, mobile banking = an app
  • For a mechanic = new shocks and struts
  • For a leadership coach = executive team coaching

If you’re looking to minimize push back and increase your close rates, clarify what benefits you provide and what the customers are really saying ‘Yes’ to.
