Advertising for peanuts


Have you ever wondered why some people succeed and others fail in advertising? Maybe it's the simple fact that they listen more and advertise less to their prospects.

People do not want to be sold to … they want to buy. Your main goal in any sales situation is to find the need and fill it with your product, idea (s), slogan, ability, whatever … If you do not need it, you do not have to. will have no sales.

Now, let's say that there is a need – how to fill this need? What should you say?

The first step is to observe more and talk less. We have 2 ears / eyes and 1 mouth for a reason and should use them accordingly – all the more so as the majority of sales leads come from non-verbal actions.

Treat your clients as they want to be treated and you will succeed more often than you fail. Get to know your customers and tell them how they want to be sold.
