Find yourself backing away from sales objections?

You backing away from exploring objections is JUST as disempowering for your potential customers as you pressuring them to buy.

You backing away from exploring objections is JUST as disempowering for your potential customers as you pressuring them to buy.

Let that one sink in for a moment.

You’re not going to say something like, “You need to find the money to work with/buy from me, or you won’t be successful.”Right?! Gross. Ick. Blech.

That’s obviously disempowering on SO many levels.

But SO IS, “Sounds like you don’t have the money right now. Okay, I understand — have a nice day.”

One disempowers by pressuring and taking the decision away from your potential customer.

The other disempowers by reinforcing their money fears or their story that they’re not worth investing in.

The MOST empowering approach? The middle ground of actually exploring objections with your potential customer.

You do this by leaning in, moving TOWARD the objection. By asking more questions. By getting to the truth of what’s REALLY going on (hint: it’s usually never about the money). And then by helping your customers think about the decision in front of them differently.

Not pressuring. But not backing away either.

The takeaway here? Being available to explore your customers’ objections IS the most empowering thing you can do in a sales conversation.
