IF YOU READ THROUGH THIS TRAINING – AND – YOU FOLLOW THESE VERY, VERY SIMPLE INSTRUCTIONS – I GUARANTEE YOUR “CLOSING” PERCENTAGES WILL IMPROVE – YOUR SALES OR ENROLLMENTS OR SIGN UPS WILL INCREASE – PROBABLY DRAMATICALLY. ANYONE CAN LEARN TO USE THIS METHOD – ANYONE!

You do want more sales - don’t you?

I have watched so many people on here say – just write naturally and don’t over sell. Don’t concentrate on sales methods and or make your posts “sell-ie”. I disagree – but by method. With my way - no one knows you are selling!

I see it said here at Wealthy Affiliate - don’t seem pushy or desperate – I agree!

Most of us have a bad taste in our mouth for sales or sales people. We have been subjected to very UNPROFESSIONAL - AMATEUR SALES TECHNIQUES - by beginners – THEY TURN US OFF - don’t they?

THAT PERSON “SELLING” US HAD NO IDEA WHAT HE OR SHE WAS DOING - NOR DID THEY KNOW HOW TO DO IT. They were green – many of these people leave the sales profession and move on – they were never taught the proper closing techniques in simple to understand methods - then were not MADE to practice - to make the method of closing natural - spontaneous. .

You must practice, practice until it becomes natural and automatic - second nature. The newbies were never tasked with selling to their trainer or corrected “in presentation” to get them perfect. Many trainers did not know what to do themselves.

Fortunately for all of us online – we don’t have to practice in the same way – we are writing it out - we can change our mistakes before posting – or - sometimes we can go back afterwards and edit to improve. That is a good thing for us - isn’t it?

You do want to make more money – right? And - you do not want to turn off your site visitor – do you?

Can you help me out – you can - can’t you? If you pay attention here – learn what I am going to tell you - you will never sell again – it will just happen for you. And that folks - makes sense to all of us - does it not?


All of life is a sales presentation - if you know how to do that subtly – you get the result you set out to get - the result you went for - and NO ONE has any idea you were doing it.

That makes sense to you – correct? And - it might be the most important thing you can learn to help with your success – isn’t it? And not just on the internet - but in life itself.

I used to own weight loss centers. We had a presentation that we tried to have the weight loss consultants memorize - use it - recite back to the patients. It was not used in written form with the prospect – the sales person had trouble following the script – they improvised. At that time, it was memorized and not so effective. I pushed for over a year to use a flip chart or presentation book to keep the salesperson “on point”. They would then read the page with feeling and conviction - Read a page – then they were to get the patient to agree that it would be good for them – beneficial – what they wanted. But we did it with a page to page transitional question. That makes sense - doesn’t it?

Just using that flip chart presentation almost doubled our sales - company wide - with over 100 centers at that time. Lots of sales and profit - but also much more help for the people who needed to lose weight - a win - win for everyone.

If your message is worthwhile - then using this method would benefit everyone - right?

Dave, What an amazing simple sales training.
Coming from long marketing and sales career, about 17 years,
I Do really agree with your method, and the least it should be practiced. I do believe that we All need to become better in selling. Better means more closing Value added deals with our readers, customers and humanity.

For sure I am tagging this training into my essential tool box.

Surprisingly, I was thinking about the same regarding getting the help of each other interns of technical support, writing support , or Business planning and managing aspects. We can invite others from the community to add blogs into our websites as guests or experts. This surely will increase the authority of the website and will add more value to the reader/visitors, isn't it? :)

WA community holds huge expertise and talents, even if some feel to be misfit with there physical jobs or careers.

I am voting to your final suggestion.

Thank you very much.

Hiya - this approach is perfect for social media platforms in a very short form.

And, as you've demonstrated perfectly here, it's great for product review sites, information sites and also shopping cart sites.

It is a technique that works extremely well so thanks for sharing this info.

Hiya, Steve - I help set up eCommerce & Blogger websites so people can work from home. I started as a computer tech in 1979 on business systems and evolved into systems design, etc, from there. The YouTubby stuff is just so far to learn about the animation software that will be used for my training site - when I stop getting distracted by my wife wanting yet another shop online.

I usually sit beside people and demo what to do and get them making sales, sometimes within a few hours once they learn how powerful Fabebook is when you have your own site(s). I set up shopping cart systems under cPanel and show people WordPress via WA so I always send people here because the backup & all the support is so good and so fast.

I recommend WA to everyone but tell them how to use the disadvantages at WA as advantages. Not many WA reviews have a proper list of things people should know before upgrading.

HomeworkersUK DOT club links to a few of our (my wife and I) sites. No-one has yet noticed it also reads homeworkerSUK so that's handy, isn't it?

Your training here is cool and correct, I have kind of used it with variations as needed for years when teaching people the concepts of DNA and computer coding where they have to draw the conclusions needed to understand concepts themselves. You've demonstrated that really well here, but you are an expert in that field, aren't you?

All the best, isn't it?

I like the clarity and consistency of your approach, and it makes perfect sense when people are face to face, maybe even on the phone. I'm not sure the personal interaction works online, however. Have you fully tested it online, with response check boxes and without (split tested, hopefully)?

Please let me know. If this is tested and proven online, I'll find a way to use it on my professional prospects.

BTW, I really agree with your collaboration idea - there should be a channel for this on the WA platform, or we should find a way to make it easy within the existing structure.

Dmk71152 Premium
The purpose of the - "question - answer - get them to agree" - is not to give them an opportunity to answer other than where you are leading them - so presenting 2 choices of answers where they check the box would be self-defeating - "in my opinion". The answers are meant to be a nod of the head or an almost unconscious acceptance as the information is a given to them.

We never gave them choices (boxes to ck) in person or on the phone - we did not want them to have to think through the whole process (look for negatives) in order to answer other than our direction or directed response.

Also - it was a whole series of questions answered through out the presentation or talk - in order to convince the person of the merits of the/your eventual offer. It was a continuous process. Remember it usually takes 7 yes's or no's (or more) to get a sale.

All I know is once we adopted this process instead of the conventionally taught closes (ie. Ben Franklin- alternate of choice - and the others) Our closing percentages increased dramatically. Our success rate going forward through out the program increased. We used it though-out to encourage or "sell" the people to keep going at whatever it was. This process was originally developed for our weight loss program. But it was adopted or copied from a American Income Life Insurance presentation book. The closing percentages increased very, very significantly (doubles in some cases or even more). I have since used it for many businesses with success and happy customers.

And yes - I agree WA'ers should band together when we have similar interests or niches to create and test what will work and help one another..

Several of us have been working on a marketing program for some months now - it has proven more difficult that we anticipated - but 2 such programs are being tested and changed as need - as we speak. Hopefully they both will be operational in the next few days.

As we all find - it is not as easy as we are lead to believe. And - I continue to add my slant on the sales techniques as they create the systems and plug ins that will work together. Again - not as easy as it sounds when we started.

I understand the fact that a check box or other yes/no visitor input would be contrary to the basic idea - "raise the question, let them consider it, but answer it for them and ask for agreement (without waiting too long for it - agreement being clearly expected..."
In my view this is powerful because of the interactive dynamic and the psychology it brings - people feel free to disagree, but too intimidated to do so. Each time that happens, they must either do something very uncomfortable, or go with the flow. If they go with the flow, they wind up owning the tacit approval you set them up with. That's great, but IMHO it is VERY dependent on the human dialog dynamic, so duplicating it in a non-interactive online situation is a challenge. If you climb that hill, and find a way to duplicate the psychology without the live interaction, I'm very interested to find out how that will work. I don't feel intimidated by non-human computer interactions that I know of, but maybe I'm an exception.

Please let us know how this works out as you test the online version.

Steve

it is rather simple - but takes some practice for it to be smooth -
ask the question - answer the questions and get the person to agree with you - that makes sense??? doesn't it?? And you can do that??? can't you? Just takes some practice.

not quite sure what you are asking - there is always more information to learn and apply - but you must start somewhere and work forward. I work with a group of people on here looking for the best products and marketing systems - we are testing things now. Hopefully between the group of us we will have something very good soon - but it takes some testing to be sure.

My post here is more about how to word your questions to get the response you want - it has worked for me and those I taught to use it. The questions are designed to get people to respond appropriately to what you are looking for people to do.

Here is what I send to new people -my post sis in there - but if you are new there is more to confuse you - if you are new to this.

Welcome to WA - lots to learn here- stay focused - go through the Certification Courses first - you will get confused or frustrated from time to time - ask lots of questions - people are here to help you. 


HERE ARE 3 WA'ers Training Posts - they helped me - one is vocabulary you use here - one is a detailed use of your dashboard to find anything you will need - one is a plug-in to add to WordPress - that will help you build your sties. Hope they help - they did me This one I wrote - deals with how to "close" for the result you want. Stay with it - you don't need a wish of good luck - you need a plea to study the material and stay at it no matter what - it will change your life and hopefully the people you touch with your message.

If you show a true interest in people they will respond to what you are guiding them towards. Show them value and if you look at the video Jay did this past Friday you can get a better understanding on how to do this. Kinda "win" "win". Bottom line watch the video..

not sure what you are referring to - this was a post about selling or persuasive questions - using this method does not interfere with showing a sincere interest - I learned this when I owned and ran weight loss centers and we made every effort to help them and guide them to their success - we found this method got them going - helped to continue to motivate them - while we showed concern and sometimes a little "kick in the ass' motivation to keep them going - we had about 550 people at time using our program.

Dmk71152 Premium
it is something I learned or adopted years and years ago - we practiced it until it was natural and it worked really well - I don't know if it is ownership or just making the question and answering it - they agree without realizing we made their decision for them.. It is just simple and subtle and effective. We threw out all the fancy closes we learned - the Ben Franklin Close - Alternate of Choice - and on and on. Just one method sprinkled in as you go along. It seemed to work for everyone - was easy to teach - and once they practiced and made it natural to there was of speaking.-they results were strong. .

I did not pay for the series but have watched 3 of 4 free that have been put out. It is now a blog on legitorascam.com - but the blog is not done yet - needs images and some links yet.

I wiil reach out to Jennifer later this evening.
