There are two key reasons your sales strategies aren’t working. You aren’t alone in your challenge. Twenty-five million other small business owners, entrepreneurs, and SOHO’s are desperately seeking to sell somebody something… and most don’t have the answer to these why’s either. No sales strategies work until these two “why’s” are effectively answered.
Zig Ziglar author of Selling 101 states, “selling is a transference of feelings.” Feelings represent emotions… and emotions are the driver behind the answer to those two critical “why” questions.
In spite of all the motivational speakers that exist the simple truth is you can’t motivate anyone to DO anything. The motivation to act comes from within the other person. What triggers the motivation to act in anyone is EMOTION.
This is true for both you and your potential buyer.
The first “why” question you must answer is…
“Why are you doing this?”
Don’t just flippantly answer this question. Keep asking yourself this question and responding “so that…” until you get to the real reason the real emotion that motivates you to take action. Not just sporadic or random action. Get to what motivates you enough to take consistent daily action so you can consistently make daily progress toward the ultimate thing you get from doing this.
Effective sales strategies are never random actions, or the result of luck. Effective sales strategies result from consistent actions taken daily.
Don’t even bother going to the next “why” question until you get to your bottom line motivation for doing this. If you can’t feel it just thinking about it you’ll never have the stamina to produce the sales results you’re hoping for. And we both know hope is NOT a strategy.
The second “why” question is…
“Why would someone want to buy your stuff?”
Go through the same process just like you did for yourself until you come up with the emotion that motivates your buyers to take action.
Just in case you can’t think of a real world example of how this works let me help you. What does Nike sell? If your answer is shoes, clothes, posters, or anything else you are wrong. Nike doesn’t really sell stuff they sell WINNING. The stuff is what you buy to fulfill what you really want… the opportunity to feel like a winner.
