    Understanding the Motivation of Your Mature Customers

    Understanding the Motivation of Your Mature Customers

    You know your products features and benefits, and you are still missing sales. It’s not your fault! You have been trained to talk features and benefits with a focus on closing, closing, and more
    closing. You bought into “close early, close often” and you are finding out the trial closes you learned are not working very well. What if you knew this way of selling was a turn off for mature consumers?

    In this session of Let’s be Frank you will learn the top 10 fears of our aging customer. They may not talk openly about these things, but you can be assured that they think about them—a lot.

    When you understand the things that worry them and what your customer fears, you will understand their motivations. Their motivating decisions are based on emotion and rarely saving money.

    30-Year Old Marketing and Sales Techniques are Dead!

    30-Year Old Marketing and Sales Techniques are Dead!

    Why are you using the same sales methodology today that was taught 30 years ago? Your customer receives information differently, thinks differently, and responds differently but you are regurgitating the same old stuff. What if you presented to customers in a fashion they appreciate and that creates the emotion to do business today?

    Do you find that customers are demanding more while insisting you do business their way and on their terms? This is disrupting the way that in-home sales is being done. These changes have created two big threats to in-home sales:

    1)High cost of leads
    2)Lower closing rates

    As fewer and fewer people respond to your marketing, and fewer people want to sit for presentations, you will either adapt or be forced to go out of business.

Everywhere they look they find shady marketers waiting to “juke” them and take their hard-earned money. You can be the beneficiary of their lies if you know how to position yourself. While everybody else is weaving a web of deceit, imagine how refreshing it is for your customers to meet someone they trust and relate to. You will be able to step in and close the sale with 100% truth!
