‘It’s all about you’ to quote the words of a famous boy band.
No one wants to hear all about your product, your company, your solution…. It’s a product for them, it will help them or their company, and it’s going to be the solution to their problem.
Bring the client into the sales pitch and remember who it’s about!
Following from the previous note, try to bring in the client’s name and company name at every possible opportunity. Repeat their name, keep them engaged your customer will start to feel like you have created something for them.
Communicate the value of your product, not a long list of features and product details. They don’t care about the details, but they do care about the resulting value from using your product.
A true magical word, that helps covey your message. Instead of telling them why, explain through a story and help them imagine, themselves in a situation using your service.
Back yourself and use the word because in a sentence, you need this because….
Rather than focus on the issue and highlighting a negative, highlight the opportunity and shine a light on the positives.
