Creating the buying experience by understanding the buying process. I have seen many, many, many sales pitches over my life. I am always fascinated by the approach that the sales person takes in order to make the sale. I have come to the conclusion that the foundations of the sale are always going to be exactly the same but the delivery will always be unique to you. That uniqueness stems from your business mission statement, core values, avatar, and business model.  So while many of coaches adhere to a specific selling model they often forget that the foundations of the sale are what built that model. If you want to change the world and offer a different approach, one that gains customer loyalty and passionate followers read on to discover how to create the foundation.

Listening to your buyer seems counterproductive. After all, you are not telling them about how great your widget is or how much you are going to change their lives.  Trust me… this one step alone can help you increase your sales in ways that you can’t even image. You will be able to learn what makes them tick, what are the pain points, what problem that if solved will change their life forever, or just what their need is. When you ask the question and then listen you are creating the first step in the relationship, you can create the commonality that is needed in every relationship. If through this you are able to share a big old belly laugh and something that is a deep intimate emotional experience, you have gained something in common which then leads to trust.
