The Phone is Your Friend

Ok, maybe a funny title for a blog post, but bear with me, because it’s important.

In working with my newer clients, I notice that most of them tend to focus too much on what I call “passive” selling- email, website, business cards. They send callers to their websites, try to drum up business through email, and generally rely on indirect methods to sell.

If this describes you, stop right now, because you are losing money.

How to Create Dividend Value in Your Business

There are two main types of value in your business, commodity value and dividend value. Commodity value rests on availability and convenience- you can go into any Walmart store and buy batteries, milk, or bread. These are the same batteries, milk, and bread that you could buy from Kmart, Target, or any of the big box stores. Commodities are valuable because they are necessary and convenient. They are not unique, which means that commodities are always extremely price sensitive. If you can buy the exact same product for less, with about the same amount of effort, most people will always go with the lower price.

As an expert in your industry, you want to avoid being seen as a commodity, in that your services or products are interchangeable with everyone else’s. Being viewed as a commodity is the death knell for being able to sell high priced programs.
