This is a very common problem I see time and time again. I have been guilty of it many times before myself. So many talk about their features, widgets, services, products, specs, pricing or what they do when discussing what they sell.
This is the wrong approach.
In this blog post, I am going to talk about the importance of selling the outcome your product/service/widget provides. Not what it does, but the outcome it produces for your consumer. I don’t care if you are a dentist, web designer, swimming pool contractor or exterminator. It applies to any business, selling anything.
Here are some examples:
This also goes back to selling benefits, not features. This is an excellent way to differentiate yourself in the marketplace as most businesses are not selling the benefits or the outcome. If you sell features, you’re just like everyone else and blend in with your competition.
So are you selling the outcome your service provides? Or are you selling what you do? Make the change now and you’ll notice an increase in your sales and profits.
