How to Sell Anything to Anyone
By Nathan Blaszak,
Its mind-boggling to me when I talk to most copywriters, marketers and entrepreneurs and they desperately search for the best approach to communicate or market a written message when the most obvious tools are staring them right in the face.
Whats even more baffling to me is that many of them have to search for the best way to motivate prospects to buy their product and services instead of first understanding what unconsciously motivates them to act.
If you havent guessed what the most obvious tools are thats staring you right in the face, its unconscious psychological devices more particularly, the thinking habits of every brain on the face of the planet earth.
Unconscious psychological devices are motivations of the mind that are embedded deep within a persons brain, and require a simple push button trigger to activate an automatic response action from their brain in the form of placing an order, a request for more information (generating leads), and/or a phone call or visit to the store or other place of business.
The concept of mind control has always been irresistible to copywriters, salespeople, marketers and entrepreneurs. Why? Obviously, it gives the person who knows these psychological devices the privileged benefits to push button automatic fortunes.
If youre a writer, in business or in the marketing arena whos interested in specializing in this million dollar knowledge, youre in luck because Im going to share 7 of them with you right now. And here they are:
1. Story Everyone loves a good story
Theres a magic that happens when you tell a story. The reader or listener has to become part of the story, in order to make sense of it. This is where you get them to FEEL, and almost realistically experience in their imaginations, what youre telling them. Unconsciously, this creates a memory and it is harder to forget. Finally, it helps you create a bond with your prospect.
Application: Relate to your prospect and come up with a story that gives them imaginative reasons to use your product or service.
2. Time Distortion Pretending They Already Are
Heres the attitude: You already want and own this product and let me show you what its like to. Basically, what youre doing is future pacing their thoughts as if they are holding your product or service in their hands. Use simple descriptive phrases that initiate a sense or touch response, and it instills in the mind of your prospects that they already own it. They will begin to imagine the benefits of doing so all on their own.
If you sell books, they are flipping though the pages. Electronics, they are using this neat gadget (pushing the buttons, twisting knobs etc). Cars, boats, anything get in and drive it,
3. Credibility To Project Authority
what you say believable, and nothing outrageous. Who is backing your message? Do you have happy buyers of your products or services? What do they have to say? Put that in your message. Show them experts endorse your products. If its not believable, your prospects are
Application: Ask your customers for testimonials, even if you have to ethically bribe them for one. Offer a free sample, bonus, or report. Simply put, the more credibility you create for you and your product or service, the more believable the message becomes, and the less resistance they have when it comes to make a buying decision.
4. Urgency To Act Now
Even if your sales message is emotionally driven and powerful -- making them feel like the want to buy, place a sense of urgency to reinforce them to buy it now, and to not wait, period. Limited offers, supplies wont last, this deal wont last long. No matter how powerful your sales message is, if they get away after so long, the feeling and their buying decision erodes away their desire to buy now, until its gone.
Application: Come up with a compelling reason to get your prospect to feel so compelled its absolutely necessary they must buy it now, because its urgent. Maybe use fear of loss.
5. I Gave It To You Free, Youre Guilty To Create The Return Effect
Ever get an offer in the mail of a free sample of a product? Ever go to a website and get 3 free chapters of a book? Giving something to someone for free creates guilt, the feeling to give back. If your friend buys you dinner, you might feel the need to buy it next time. Its human nature. When somethings given, the desire to give back is created.
Application: Give away a free sample or report anything for free. Make sure it is something of real value. After, suggest that youve given them something and how theyre one tuff nut to crack, because youve given them something for free, and you havent heard back from them. Sit back, and watch them buy.
6. Commit then remain Consistent To Create Long-Term Friendships/Action
Heres the attitude: If youre buying from me now, were friends; youll buy more from me too. Youve won the customers trust once youve established the first sale, and once theyre happy, make them happy again, and again. Buy something from the television and youre almost always asked to buy more, its simple. Then, two months later, another offer from that same company rings on your phone in the other room, or the offer is waiting in your mail box when you get home. Normally, being a much higher priced product or service. Why not ask? Youre obviously qualified.
Application: If they buy once, get them to buy again and again. If you sell information memberships, sell all the tools and products that the membership consists of (improving your golf game membership website sell golf clubs, balls, clothing, shoes etc.) If you sell them a book, sell them a home study course thats more expensive.
7. Curiosity To Keep Your Prospect Tuned In
Early in your sales presentation, promise what will happen when they finish and complete your sales presentation, and keep them curious. Curiosity is a powerful tool you can use to keep your prospect in suspense, and to search out the answers to satisfy that strong desire to fill in the missing information. Leave out certain information in your benefits that trigger the thought What will happen if?
Application: Instill and arouse curiosity early in your sales presentation to cause your prospect to want to complete your message (i.e. tell them theres a misspelled word in your sales copy, and if they can find it they get a special deal. Ask them if they want to compelling benefit, and tell them theyll find the answer as they continue to read, or pay attention to you.
