How You Can Get Even More Clients
The most common question people ask me is, "How do I say what I do in a way that makes people want to work with me?"
So, here’s what I suggest you do:
A "wake-up" problem is a core problem your client thinks about first thing in the morning. These problems are the ones they most want solved—the ones they would be willing to pay just about anything to resolve.
You see, your potential customers/clients don't actually care what you do (your process).
What they care about is the problem you are going to solve for them. And if you can convince them that you will solve this problem for good, they will be happy to pay you lots of money.
This makes sense, right? Because you could help people lose weight in at least five different ways:
Your job is to convince them that you are the one who can provide them with the result they are looking for.
They do want to know how you are going to help them lose weight, but only after they are convinced that you are going to help them lose weight.
So instead of answering the question, "What do you do?" with "I am a _______. (Fill in the blank: acupuncturist, nutritionist, copywriter, coach, etc.),
Answer the question this way:
I help ____________(target market) achieve this __________________(result).
e.g. "I help people lose weight with a balanced approach that doesn't use restrictive diets."
You can also use the problem approach:
I help ___________(target market) who are struggling with _______________(problem) to achieve this ___________________(result).
e.g. "I help entrepreneurs, who are struggling to lose weight because they are so busy with their businesses, find time to get healthy, and fit into their skinny clothes again, while still rocking it in their businesses."
Then when they say, "Great, I need to lose some weight, tell me more," you can tell them what you do and how you do it.
Try it at your next networking event and let me know what happens.
