Don’t sell features. Don’t sell benefits. – BigAlBooks.com

Don’t sell features. Don’t sell benefits.

Instead, base your sales presentation on your prospect’s most pressing problem. Then you’ll have your prospect’s attention.

For example, if you talk about the weekly bonus checks, that’s a feature.

If you talk about the benefits of weekly checks (not waiting until the end of the month, getting your earnings quicker, instant gratification for work performed, etc.) – you’re doing better, but it still won’t hold your prospect’s attention.

Try talking about your prospect’s most pressing problem. For example, you might say:

“Next Tuesday your mortgage payment is due. That could eat up most of your paycheck. Wouldn’t it be nice to get a check from our company that would pay the mortgage payment for you? Then you’d have your entire paycheck to spend on whatever you want.”

See the difference?

Your prospect is constantly thinking about his problems – not your benefits.
