Imagine tossing a pebble into a crystal clear pond on a still day, & watching the ripples make their way to the shore. A tiny cause has a massive effect.
But on a windswept stormy day? You could hurl the largest boulder into the same pool, and the effect would be felt for no more than a few feet.
So it is with marketing new ideas.
Your prospects are in a trance that is like a still pool of awareness. They are in an "I'm worried about money" trance. They are in an "I wish I could finally find that somebody special" trance. They are in an "I'm sick of my dead end job" trance, & so on.
If you enter that trance with your words, your prospects will follow you. They will accept your suggestions. They will give those suggestions power, like the pebble that makes its presence felt on the shore, because receiving your message is effortless.
On the other hand, any striving on the part of your prospect to maintain their attention on your message, because it fails to harmonize with their trance, & no power will be granted.
"Belief Is All-Powerful!"
To enter the buyer's trance, begin your sales message by showing where your position agrees with their accepted beliefs.
As you move forward, make a logical connection between that which is accepted, & another conclusion that is a step closer to the new conclusion you wish to promote.
This act of mental agreement creates momentum.
For example, let's say your target market believes that Guaranteed Investment Certificates are the best way to invest for their retirement. Are they likely to listen to you if you boldly proclaim the superiority of Mutual Funds?
But would they give you some attention if you began with, "Would you be interested in more of the kind of money growth you've enjoyed through Guaranteed Investment Certificates?"
And then, "If there were a low risk strategy for using GICs, together with Mutual Funds to increase your returns by 53% or more, would you want to find out about it?"
And then, "Give me just 15 minutes, & I'll show you the failsafe secret to an earlier retirement!"
By establishing empathy in your sales message, you enter the trance. And you can begin marketing new ideas.
Each successive point or question should do three things.
1) Echo accepted belief.
2) Introduce a new element that when logically combined with the previous conclusion, creates a new hypothesis.
3) Raise the level of commitment to the new idea.
You begin pursuing small yes responses, & gradually grow those agreements into bigger YES responses, until your final call to action.
Do you see how this works?
Use questions, statements, & logic that get your prospect thinking YES & OK!
Why Does It Work?
To be human, is to have unlimited freedom of choice. We are able to consciously decide our response to every stimulus. This is our god given gift.
However, we forget this. Instead, we are a bundle of conditioned responses. We hypnotize ourselves into believing that external circumstances give rise to our thoughts.
For instance, if I were to say to you that you are stupid, you would probably become angry. You would think I was a jerk for saying so. That is a choice you make.
You could just as easily make a choice to ignore my remark. You could make any choice you wish. You could even decide to think that I am a jealous fool, & feel sorry for me. The choice is all yours.
On the other hand, if I were to say to you that you are brilliant, you would no doubt feel pleased with yourself. Again, this is a choice. You could just as easily decide to pay no attention to my opinion.
But you forget you are making a choice. You automatically become angry or flattered, depending on the stimulus. You are in a trance of your own making.
To be human, is to be filled with such conditioning.
When we accept a logical conclusion that contains our own beliefs, we are conditioned to accept another one, & then another. Until without even realizing it, we have before long accepted a new belief that we would not have accepted, had it been forced on us in the first place.
Such is the judo of persuasion, & marketing new ideas.
