When I used to think about "selling," whether through:
👉direct messaging people and offering to hop on a call with them
👉 or promoting my latest offering in Facebook groups
I used to be UBER afraid of IRRITATING people.
I pictured everyone thinking: "Ugh. This girl just wants to SELL me"
OR "there goes Aliya again, waving her 'buy me, buy me!' flag!"
We've all gotten the: friend request > immediate FB message- "Hey, you totally should buy my product you know NOTHING about. In fact, I'm not even sure you need it! Haha! Anyway, here's a link to my PayPal!"
I SO didn't want to be that girl.
Here's what I realized...
Selling only feels sleazy if:
👉1. We don't fully believe in our product/serving or...
👉2. We feel like we're PUSHING something on someone.
Let's address #2 through the wisdom of our new friend Larry Ferlazzo (the gentlemen quoted to the right! >>
✨Good ol' Lar points out that sales ISN'T ABOUT IRRITATING/PUSHING someone, but rather AGITATING OR MAKING THEM AWARE of how important it is to address that thing--i.e. transforming their mindset, getting new clients, losing weight--that they truly, deep down, WANT to do.✨
So! That means in order NOT to be
😬 or downright annoying...
We simply need to KNOW ENOUGH ABOUT OUR PROSPECT to be able to AGITATE them to make a great decision for themselves and go after that thing they really want
Which means...drumroll please...
In order to have sleaze-free, confident sales, we only need to start with something super duper simple:
#1. Believing in our product.
#2. CONNECTION with our prospects
