What question will help us make better presentations?

"What would you like to know first?" Instead of pitching and presenting, we put our prospects in the question-asking mode. It’s easy. And it is polite. Prospects hate a one-way conversation where we just talk at them. So as soon as possible, ask the question: "What would you like to know first?"

If prospects joined because of information, companies wouldn't need us. They already have... Read full article

Two Professionals walk down a street of prospects …

​ The first Professional talks to everyone. No prospects. He thinks, "What a bunch of dumb prospects. My offer is too expensive. The economy is bad. This business is too hard." The second Professional talks to the same prospects. The prospects react, "Wow! Tell me more!" They think, "What a great gold mine of prospects. Almost everyone wants what I offer." The lesson? Prospects are neutral. They don’t become a good prospect or a bad prospect, until they meet us. They make a quick decision based on the words we say. If you... Read full article
