Why Having the Best Product Won’t Necessarily Make You Rich…
If you don’t feel comfortable selling your product or service, you may never reach your financial goals. This is something that rich people fully understand, but poor people often fail to understand.
The majority of ‘regular’ folks hold back from selling, perhaps due to an upbringing that has told them that it is wrong to promote themselves or a bad experience with a pushy salesperson – even a failure on their own sales efforts.
Whatever the case, the ability to sell is one of the most important factors that can help you succeed.
The Link Between Selling and Success
Many wealth experts advise that having the best product in the world won’t make you rich if people aren’t buying it. People won’t buy your product if they don’t know about it, and they won’t know about it unless you tell them about it. This is the very first basic lesson of selling.
Rich people know that selling is essential for success. Promotion is a crucial part of their thought patterns and they have developed a constant eye to making the sale in order to grow their profits.
Poor people however, tend to be uncomfortable selling. Even with the best ideas and designs, they will never profit from their ideas without the ability or drive to sell them.
At the end of the day, if you want to join the ranks of the wealthy, you need to be able to sell. This applies whether you are selling a product, service or even your own unique brand. People will never know about you and your work unless you promote yourself.
Whatever is holding you back from selling, you need to identify the reason, deal with it and change your attitude for good if you want to get to a better financial place..
How to Sell Your Product Effectively
Not sure how to go about selling and promoting your product? Perhaps it is time to take a good hard look at your product. You need to determine the value it offers, and how it will help your customers. You also need to determine whether you are doing them a favor by selling it. If you don’t think you will be helping anyone by selling them your product, it is possibly time to find a new product to sell. After all, you can only really be successful if people want to buy your product.
You can evaluate your product by doing the following:
• Rate your product on a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being the lowest, 10 being the highest)
• If your rating is 6 or below, dump your idea and find a better one.
• If your rating is 7-9, find a way to improve your product so you are offering more value.
• If your rating is 10, then it’s time to get selling!
• The good news is that selling gets easier over time. Once you get used to selling your product,
you will be well on your way to understanding the basic factors that hold the key to your financial success.
