MAKE YOUR OFFER IRRESISTABLE

 

successful person holding the world which represents an irresistible offer

Since you’re selling to human beings wouldn’t it be great to know the five secrets that have the greatest influence on your customers?  What I’m about to share with you will make you the Svengali of Sales in your niche.  I’m going to put them in the order of use in the marketing process, but they can overlap or be switched around to fit your situation.

What happens in nature when there is a vacuum?  Right.  There is an attempt to fill that void, and human nature also follows that law.

  1. Filling the void – When someone does a person a favor or gives them something of value for free, this act provides an imbalance in the relationship.  This creates a subconscious pressure on the recipient to give back in some way. This is what’s known in marketing as filling the void.
  1. Reciprocation – In marketing the word “FREE” has the most response of any word in the English language.  That’s why marketers use it over, and over again.  Everybody likes something for free, don’t you?  Even though “free” means there is no obligation or cost, the recipient does feel obligated.  If something of real value is given to the person, an imbalance is created – a void in nature – that needs to be filled.  Maybe not immediately, but if that person has gotten great value and use from the gift, there will be a nagging sub-conscious motivation to reciprocate in some manner.

You’ll find that some people just don’t seem to reciprocate, and it could be that they didn’t appreciate the full value of your offer.  This is why it’s so important to make sure when you are offering a free gift with a promotion, that your customers are made aware of the full value of what they’re receiving.

What really makes this work in marketing, though, is that you make your “free” offer available when your customer takes action.  Now it can be a very small one like filling out a customer card for you (which gives you their name, address, and email address), or accepting your product on a 30-day trial.

  1. Getting your customer to like you  – Have you heard the phrase, “if a customer knows, likes, and trusts you then they’ll buy from you”.  Well, you’ve gotten them to know you with your “free” offer, the next step is to get them to “like” you.  The quickest way I know to get someone to like you is for you to let them know you like them (reciprocation, again).

Now, not ALL people are going to “like” you and you will not like all your customers, but if you take this approach, you have got a lot better odds of finding customers.

When you’re writing your ads and marketing letters always write as if they are a personal note to a real, live, breathing friend.  Use plain talk as if you’re talking to your best friend, and not “hi-tech technobabble”.  Keep it simple!

  1. Trust – I don’t know about you, but when I hear someone say “TRUST ME” it reminds me of a snake-oil salesperson and makes me do anything but trust them.  So how do you get your customers to trust you?  Take a leadership role with them and tell them what they should do to take action and buy.  You must be or present yourself as an “Authority” figure.  An expert in your field and the only one they should buy from as proven by the endorsements of your other customers, their friends, and neighbors.

If your offer is made in a letter, then include some endorsements from others, mention articles written about you, books, articles, newsletters that you’ve written, etc.  It is interesting that most people don’t want to make a decision, and it’s better that you give them an action plan to say “yes”.

  1. Scarcity – This is one persuader that really motivates humans to action, and you must create and manage this to your advantage in every offer you make.

People want things that solve their problems or make them feel good about themselves that are of good quality.  They want it even more – if the quantity is limited in some way.  Remember the law of supply and demand?  If the demand for a product is high and the supply is low, then the price that’s charged will be accepted readily be it high or low.  (Sounds like buying gas for your car, doesn’t it?)

Even if you create the “perception” that there is a limited quantity available, a limited time frame for availability, or whatever you conceive to use, you’ll find this a catalyst to action for your customer.

Of course, it goes without saying that you always include a guarantee in your offers.  I always like the “no questions asked” type of guarantee for 30, 60, 90 days, or even a full year if it fits for you.  With this, you’re emphasizing your credibility (trust) by saying you’re going to be around for a while.  I’ve found that most times there are very few takers to the guarantee policy you offer, and if there is – you don’t want to keep an unhappy customer anyway.

      4 Top Tips for Better Instagram Tagging

      By: Adam Rubin

       Grow Your Instagram Following Through Better Tagging

      laptop attracting audience through screen

      No one thing makes a successful Instagram account. Success on Instagram is the result of a smart strategy that incorporates a wide range of different factors. 

      But with that said, one of the single most important aspects is to consider the role of your hashtags. Hashtags are some of the most crucial elements when it comes to gaining new views, gaining more likes, and generally helping your page to grow exponentially. Here are four tips that will help you use them better.

      Use Thirty

      You have the option to use up to thirty hashtags, and the most important tip to take away from this? Use ALL thirty. It’s like being able to play the lottery for free. Why would you play just once, when you could enter 30 times and improve your chances of success by x30?

      Find the Sweet Spot

      When you start typing out your hashtags, you’ll find that you see a little preview with suggestions that have numbers by them. Those numbers tell you how many other people have used that hashtag, and this in turn can be a brilliant clue as to which are the best to use. The mistake? Assuming that the most popular hashtag is automatically going to be the smartest option. 

      This is a mistake, because you’ll find a hashtag that is too popular gets drowned out by other identical posts and therefore doesn’t stay visible too long. Likewise, you don’t want a hashtag that no one is interested in… so find that sweet spot with around 30,000 posts.

      Use a Range

      That said, there’s always the smallest chance that if you go for the biggest niche, your image will get picked up by someone influential and go gangbusters. Likewise, if you use an obscure hashtag, it can mean that your image hangs around in search for months and months on end. So use a variety and cover the full range!

      Go Topical 

      News jacking means that you are going to use hashtags that are currently prominent or in the news. This is a great way to get attention and to find people searching for your images. Better yet, is to choose topics that are trending right now in your niche, or that are just becoming big topics but have yet to be inundated with competition.

      Follow these tips, post regularly, and you will be on your way to #success!

        10 WAYS TO PROMOTE YOUR BUSINESS WITH LITTLE INVESTMENT

        10 WAYS TO PROMOTE YOUR BUSINESS WITH LITTLE INVESTMENT

        resilient life blog banner, motivation is the key to life

        Those who are looking for a rundown of the many ways that you can promote your business can use this top ten list

         

        Are you doing these to promote your product? If not, you should be and you should be using them daily to do so.

         by: Adam Rubin – Founder

         

        #1: Get Viral:

        Viral media is the method of sharing any pictures, any videos and even audio that you can in as many ways as you can. This is what people look for and want. Plus, they are most likely to pass it on to others, too.

        #2: Keep Optimized:

        Be sure to keep your blogs and websites optimized so that search engines find you. It is important to do this, but it is also very easy to do. There are no over the top keyword rules you have to follow anymore.

        #3: Be Part Of The Community:

        The more you interact with the Internet community, the more people that know you and the more that visit your website. This translates into a better bottom line.

        #4: Be An Expert And Share It:

        You have to know your product so you can talk about it. Check out how you can use website services like Twitter.com to communicate with others. With your knowledge base, you will do well here.

        #5: Find Out Who’s Talking About You:

        Who is posting on their blog about you? Who is creating a backlink to your website? If you do not know, find out and be sure that you interact with them regularly. This is one of the best ways to promote your product without doing anything.

        #6: Draw People To You:

        As opposed to the sales page, create a website full of information. Become the authority on the product or on the topic. This will encourage others to use your website as a base for information on their website. Encourage people to link to your website like this.

        #7: Do Teleconferencing And Live Events:

        If you love to speak in front of others, create a seminar and promote it for your product. There is some cost here if you do not have the equipment to do so, but you can use online services for next to nothing and get fantastic results. The word “Seminar” speaks “I must be there” to those who are on the edge of making a decision about your product.

        #8: Build Your Identity:

        Find high traffic websites having to do with your niche. Then, once there, build yourself up there. This may mean interacting in forums, creating guest posts for the website and even submitting articles that they can use on their website to promote your product.

        #9: Keep Updated:

        Things change online often. The more ready you are for those changes, the more you will be able to communicate them to your readers. You also may find a new possible area to market in.

        #10: Be Consistent:

        With any online business, consistency is what makes or breaks people. As you consider the many ways that you can accomplish this, it is important to focus hard on creating a daily plan and sticking with it. For example, post on your blog daily. Visit forums and blogs daily.

        Companies seem to dislike the term ‘turnaround consulting’ because it represents failure. The truth is that turnaround consulting represents success at realizing the company is going in the wrong direction. The only time the company fails is when it is not possible to do a turnaround anymore. We help companies pivot into more profitable directions where they can expand and grow. It is inevitable that companies will end up making a few mistakes; we help them correct these mistakes.

        We help companies turnaround their non-profitable ventures into something that benefits them. Our specialty lies in understanding what makes a company special and what makes it tick.

        Thallo WP – we help companies assess their skills and choose a new direction which utilizes the talents of the team and resources most productively.

        DAVID JAME,2019

        The evolution of a consultant

        Many businesses, large and small, have a huge source of great ideas that can help them improve, innovate, and grow, and yet so many of these companies never think of using this amazing corporate asset. What is this highly valuable asset? Its own people. Says Morgan Fraud, the author of The Thinking Corporation, “Given that we are all capable of contributing new ideas, the question becomes how do you successfully generate, capture, process and implement ideas?” Becoming an organization capable of answering this question can benefit in a number of ways:

        • Work fewer hours & make money
        • Attract and retain quality, high-paying customers
        • Retain, high-paying customers
        • You’ll get more done in less time

        Consulting is the business of providing expert advice

        The true picture of modern consulting is a lot closer to home, and you probably know someone right now making great money as a consultant. 36% of the US workforce is currently engaged in some form of independent consulting and contract work, and out of this group, nearly 20% of those working full-time are earning north of six figures.

        Which method is right for you?

        If you really like the done-for-you approach, you can scale an agency. You will need to hire and train lots of people, and keeping the work quality high can be a challenge. On the flip side however, finding clients who want a turnkey service is very easy

        When people hear the word “consulting,” they often think of Harvard MBAs advising enterprise businesses on corporate strategy. They think that being a consultant means obtaining difficult degrees and certifications from prestigious universities in order to land a competitive job at a top consulting firm.

        With the rising costs of full-time employees, more and more businesses are looking for temporary and ongoing outside help, often in the form of consultants and done-for-you services. If you are interested in starting your own consulting business, there has never been a better time to get started.

        2 Crucial Tips to Get More People to Join Your Mailing List

         

        Majority of website owners don’t realize the value of their traffic. lf you took a look at all the people using Google AdWords and similar PPC Campaigns on their pages, then you will notice how these ads will fill up their page, literally directing traffic from their site. The return is not great. It doesn’t take a genius to realize that if those advertisers will pay that much for your visitors, they must be worth more than that.

         

        While PPC might be a suitable way to make some easy cash from your visitors, it’s far from the most effective way to generate long term profit from their traffic. Getting your traffic to opt-in to a mailing list which will then enable you to bring them back to your site again and again, promoting any products or services you have to them directly is the better option.

        But how do you get them to sign up? Here are some tips on how you can get your visitors to willingly give you their contact details and the permission to e-mail them.

        Offer A Valuable Gift

        One sure-fire way to make people more open to giving away their details is to give them something in return. The easiest option here is to offer an e-book which works well because it’s free to copy and doesn’t require any mailing costs. If you aren’t a prolific writer then don’t worry, you can easily create an e-book by compiling a few of the articles on your website (it’s free after all) or by commissioning someone from a freelancing site or company like Resilient Life to set it up for you.

        To benefit even more from this, include your brand and URL in the e-book. This way if your visitors give the book away and share it with others, it will still act as a good promotion for your site and products. You can also subtly pitch other promotions throughout the content. – again it’s okay as you’re not charging anything for it.

        Note though that you should clarify that your visitors are signing up to your mailing list and not just giving you their e-mail address so you can send them the book. If you don’t first get permission to send them marketing material, you may find that they are psychologically less likely to open your messages and more likely to delete them.

         

        Design Your Site Around Your Mailing List

        Your average site with AdSense ads on it will place these incredibly prominent Ads and regularly, to get the maximum number of clicks on them. Getting people to sign up to a mailing list is no different, so if you want to maximize the number of leads your site generates, then place your sign-up’s in visible places, making sure not to overdue it. Experiment with your forms and use integrations to help keep your contacts in one place. Create a ‘funnel’ with automations, so when a subscriber signs up for a particular type of product or service, you can segment them into categories. Only giving them valuable information that they are interested in.

        Ask yourself this question: what is the action you want your visitors to take when they land on your site, and what are you doing to ensure that happens?

          4 Easy Steps To Build Your Business

          4 Easy Steps To Build Your Business

          4 Easy Steps To Build Your Business

          How To Build Your Business In 4 Easy Steps

           

          Creating a profitable business is no simple task. There are many outside factors that you need to take into consideration when building a business, competition, timing, and demand. Building a business that succeeds, requires these elements to be in your favor, backed with a solid business plan and research can lead to monumental success.  Here are 5 steps to take in consideration when you’re researching how to build your business :

           

          1. Establish What Business Your Building. What you are selling?

          Your building a business and ask yourself “What are You Selling”? The answer is not as straightforward as you may believe. NIKE is in the sportswear business, but the truth is you are buying a lot more than sportswear. You’re buying an image, a feeling, the brand. Former CEO, Richard Thalheimer, would tell you he built his business for “convenience” or “innovation” before going into his industry, and sharper image is one of the most powerful brands in America. There is more that meets the eye than the product alone. Your brand is what will set you apart from your competition. Do your research when building a business!

           

          2. Who is your target audience? Build Your Business Products To Meet Your Audience. 

          By understanding who you’re selling to, you will gain the insight to create content and marketing that aligns with your audience. There are certain questions you must ask yourself when building your business about your target audience.

          What they do for a living? Where do they go for fun? What type of content interests them?

          Are just a few questions to building a successful business. The more detailed, the better you will have success when starting a targeted campaign. Understanding your business’ audience is the key to success. Knowing the answers to these questions will help clarify your own questions, while building your business to meet your consumers’ needs.

          Richard Thalheimer understood his market when he was building his business, “Sharper Image”. He understood what the people wanted and acted accordingly. Tracy Wan, who was president under Thalheimer, stated in an article in the LA Times

          “Richard has the perceptive ability to figure out the things that people want most.”

          Build your business with confidence & ease.

           

          3. Develop A Killer Marketing Strategy. How do you want to communicate with your audience?

          This is a combination of understanding your brand and your target audience. Knowing the answer to above questions will help you decide on: Where to advertise? The voice of your brand, pricing for each demographic. For the most conversions & engagement, you must place targeted advertisements where your audience will see it. Engage with them, add auto-responders when appropriate.

           

          4. Learn by example. “Success Leaves Clues”

          Success Leaves Clues. Research how other professionals in similar industries started their business and model after them. You can still be original, but having a successful model will help accelerate your road to success. Make sure you put your model on paper with your goals, otherwise they are just fantasies.

          Building a successful business requires you to focus more on just the money. Branding & Communication is crucial. Fall in love with your clientele, not your product. Your products demand may turn, & you need to be ready by constantly innovating, adding more value to the user experience and your products or services. These days they have many free/paid sites where you can stay up to date on your competition and helping you search which topics are trending. Stay Motivated, Stay Relevant, Live A Resilient  Life!

            WHAT IS DEPRESSION

            Depression: de·pres·sion /dəˈpreSH(ə)n/ Noun
            Feelings of severe despondency and dejection.
            “self-doubt creeps in and that swiftly turns to depression”
             

            MEN VS WOMEN : DEPRESSION

            Men and women suffer depression almost equally. Men, however, believe that asking for help is a sign of weakness. This increases risk for a depression-related illness or suicide because they bottle up all their emotions inside. Most men hide their depression by trying to cover their feelings. Majority of cases will avoid feeling anything with drugs, alcohol, sex, or work.

            Depression shows in men not as helpless or hopeless, but as angry, frustrated, and other aggressive feelings. Men are less likely to seek treatment than women and they are less likely to admit that they have a problem.

             

            DEPRESSION IN MEN

            Depression and man are at war and you wouldn’t even know it until there is a victor. Drugs may be a bandaid for a deep wound, which makes it difficult to pick up on some of the signs of depression, even if it is a loved one. When one is actively trying to cover up their feelings, it makes it even more difficult. They may seem full of smiles and carrying on with daily routines, but deep down inside there is a beast stirring up, just waiting to come out. Now, not only do we have to bring the depression to the front lines, we also may have to deal with an addiction or dual-diagnosis which complicates the diagnosis. Which came first “the chicken or the egg”.

             

            TYPICAL DEPRESSION SIGNS : SELF-HELP

            Some of the typical depression signs, which can vary from person to person, like sleeping more than usual, not sleeping at all, tension, or uncontrollable anger. Although I am not a medical professional, my personal experience has shown me that having a support team in your corner, unconditionally, doesn’t hurt. Well it hurts if you are trying to hide these things, but addressing the topic and letting that special someone now you are there when your ready to talk.

            It’s important not to push the issue and just let things run their course with men. This could risk pushing them further away.

            If you are a man who is depressed, there are a few things you can do to help yourself:

            • TALK: Talk to anyone about how you are feeling. Just getting it off your chest even in a confessional, is a weight lifted off your shoulder.
            • ACTIVE: Find something active you enjoy, go for a walk, put some music on or maybe play music. (Music/Art is great, for it uses the right side of your brain, the creative side)
            • BREAKS: Take breaks to do these activities and refresh your mind for the rest of the day.
            • RELAX: Remember to relax. Especially after a long day, putting aside some alone time to relax ( Not on social media)
            • NUTRITION: Healthy Eating & Exercise will keep your body and immune system strong. Be ready mentally & physically.

             

            HOW CAN A LIFE COACH HELP WITH MY DEPRESSION?

            A Life Coach is not a Therapist, nor counselor. Coaches focus more on results, while other professionals focus on the trauma. Although, both have their place. Head over to check out our Life Coach Vs. Therapist Page for an in depth analysis.

            The job of the coach is to see the greatness inside of you that you are yet to see. Staying focused on the results and reaching them efficiently. Each party has their place. For me personally, I spent close to a decade with various specialists. Most of the time I would end up remembering other reasons to be depressed and was hopeless. Even on medications, I will admit there were some nights, in the back of my mind I was hoping to go to sleep and stay asleep.

            There is nothing wrong with being on medications. That is a private matter between you and your healthcare professional. However, how many people do you know on an antidepressant who are still depressed? Eventhough

            Resilient Life Coaching uses “Human Needs Psychology” to identify an individuals belief system, for everyone has a different set of rules they live by. Finding out what they hold close to their heart, could be the leverage you need to breakthrough to a happier, wealthier, more fulfilled life.

            5 Tips To Increase Sales & Revenue

            Posted By: Adam Rubin

            INTRODUCTION:

            My name is Adam Rubin for those of you who do not know. I hope all is well, and everyone is staying safe. However, the show must go on for those of us able to work. This is the first article of many more to come. Today’s topic is more geared for professional growth, sharing 5 tips to increase sales. So whether you are usually a face to face based sales technique, for the time being you may have to change your strategy a little, if you really want to boost sales and increase revenue.

            HOW I INCREASED SALES OVER 300% IN 1 QUARTER

             My first real “Sales” job was at a high-end retail store. Within 6 months I had won “Top 10” in sales and revenue in the nation. They promoted me to General Manager, where our store flourished until the day I left. The sales training was on the job itself. Every day, people walking in are they going to buy, and how can I get them to buy more. It was all about understanding the customers wants, because people buy more of what they want than what they actually need. The second part was building rapport, while qualifying myself as an expert and them having money.

            RESULT: The fact is I have had success increasing sales, especially in person. Growing two well known, High-end retail stores, different industries. in just one quarter. I led my team to grow over 300% in multiple areas, at that time and I didn’t even have the same wisdom I have today. I’ve spent years as an Insurance Broker, which first helped me gain confidence on the phone, knocking on door, handling rejection where I was able to develop strong Leadership skills.

            I knew tricks & strategies, but what I didn’t know why they worked, I never really thought about it until my last mentor who has shaped Resilient Life till this day. Human Needs Psychology. Increasing sales by understanding 6 basic human needs, which people tend to drift towards two of them more so than the others. That is where you find the leverage you need. Finally answers to the big question, “why people do the things they do, buy or not buy?”  I’ve spent years studying this Art Of Sales & Influence h it’s an art form because humans are complex. Different cultures & different beliefs, means different communication and buying patterns.

            Your most important skill as a business owner is your “Influential Power”. Having the best product or service means nothing if you can’t get anyone to buy it, so to ensure the success of your business you must develop the ability to generate revenue.

             

            Here Are 5 Tips Developed For Increasing Sales:

             

            guaranteed to increase sales - 5 tips to increase sales,

             

            1. BUILD RAPPORT :

            If there is one thing you must do authentically and first, is building rapport. There are many ways of building rapport and we will go into some of those ways in another article. However, “NLP” aka “Nero-Linguistic Programming,” use multiple physiological techniques to put your prospects/clients at ease, a familiarity. Make them your best friend by asking questions to find commonalities. This done proper, could have the prospect closing the deal for you!

            2. INCREASE CLIENTELE :

            There are many ways to find more clients. Look at the number of clients you had last month and stretch for 10% more this month. Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there. Give webinars, Guest Speak, Volunteer, be more active on social media, or write an article for your trades magazine or business journal which will establish you as an “expert” in your field. People like to buy from experts because it reduces their fear of making a bad decision. Everyone can overcome their fear of public speaking, so find the method that works best for you and do it.

            3. INCREASE PRICE BY ADDING VALUE :

            Add value to existing & new products/services. This will allow you to increase the cost and increase repeat sales.  Anything of value that could be added to either update a Service/Product will allow you to increase the cost by at least 10%. Small changes often lead to bigger results. Only focusing on 10% increase, makes it seem less overwhelming and more attainable.

            4. TAKE THE COTTON OUT OF YOUR EARS AND PUT THEM IN YOUR MOUTH:

            95% of people in sales make the mistake of pitching their products/services before getting to know what your future client really wants & needs. Be broad, use questions to find out what they truly want and need before offering them a service that does not provide the right solutions. Qualify your prospect, add value that is useful, for that could turn them into raving fans and even opens the doors for referrals. Which I would rather take 10 referrals than 1 sale. Remember – nothing adds more to your credibility than a referral from a satisfied prospect.

            5. MEASURE EVERYTHING :

            If you don’t measure, you will not know where you need to grow. How many leads did you get last month? How many of those leads were you able to schedule an appointment with? How many were closed? Those alone can provide you with enough information to be able to predict how many you will need to get each month to continuously grow. This allows you to manage your cash flow by forecasting your sales. It also tells you how many calls are needed to increase your sales revenue. Optimize & Maximize for continuous growth.
