Something I see so many people do is sell their services or products based on the benefits or details about the offer. Instead what you should be doing is focusing on the emotion of your customer and the outcome that your customer wants to get to.
To increase income and sales you have to focus on your customers’ outcome. When you talk about your offer in terms of what it is instead of what it does or can do for the customer then you lose their interest. The customer has to be able to see exactly why they should take part in what you are offering
The best way to sell your offer is by identifying what exactly you are helping your customer achieve. Ask yourself what is the problem they are wanting to solve and what solution are you offering them?
You should try and put yourself in your customer’s shoes to think about where they are now and where they want to be after they have used your offer. If you can nail down the outcome they want to achieve then you can find where your service or product falls within those perimeters and you’ll be able to speak directly to them in a way that relates.

When you think about the transformation that your customer wants to have you should try to show them the quickest way to get it. The more content you put into a program doesn’t always mean the better it will be. Remembering that most people are drawn to instant gratification will be really helpful in creating a program that the customer is willing to go through.
A huge tip I have is to make sure your websites are more than just the detail and information about what you’re offering. I highly recommend that you look at the websites or landing pages where you discuss your offers and look at them through the eyes of your customers. Try to put yourself in their position.
Think about where they are, what their desired transformation is, and is the solution your offering shown on your website in an obvious way? Is it apparent to them that your offer or service is going to help them with their problem? Is it showing them the transformation they want to achieve? If not, you are missing out on a huge opportunity to generate more sales. Remember to focus on what it is your customers want above all else.
I see so many people make the mistake of selling their offers by talking about the facts or benefits of the offer when they should be speaking directly to the emotion and outcome the customer wants to achieve. It’s so important to talk about your offer in terms of what it does or the transformation the person can get from it versus what it is.
When you can show your offer is the solution to the problem the customer is facing you will make way more sales.
