Have you ever tried to sell the benefits of what you’re selling and you your prospect didn’t engage.
It can be frustrating when your prospect seems completely disinterested. But the problem may actually lie in how you’re communicating. If you’re simply assume what you’re selling is terrific, when your prospect is somewhere else, you may have entered the dangerous communication gap.
How to Find Common Ground
This recently happened to one of my clients. He was trying to sell a quality plan to hospital administrators, but the two parties seemed to be on completely different pages. The administrators were only interested in short-term benefits, while my client’s plan took several years to fully prove its worth.
Meet your prospects where they are, rather than where you want them to be. In order to persuade them effectively, you need to follow a few key steps.
- Establish your credibility by sharing your expertise.
- Find common ground with your prospect and focus on the benefits that matter to them.
- Provide proof and frame it in a memorable story. This will make your message more engaging and easier to remember.
- Show that you care about your prospect and want the best for them. Empathize your passion and enthusiasm without going over the top or seeming insincere.
