Prevent the Objection, “Don’t need it.” Strategy 4 of 4

ObjectionFreeSellingIconObjection # 4 of 85:Don't need it.

When does it usually occur? Initial contact.
Probable Cause: Prospect does not believe a need exists.
Objective: Establish a need.

Review your Competitor Analysis to select at least three Unique Selling Points (USPs) to orient the prospect during your opening remarks. Remember, the prospect only knows that what you're offering sounds a lot like what they're already getting from your competitor. They don't know that you have Unique Selling Points that help meet those needs better, and help them meet needs they didn't know they had or that those other needs could be filled.

For example, “I’d like to get you some information on how our company has solved some costly and critical issues related to ___, ___, and ___ (USPs). Is now a good time to quickly verify some information (slight pause to see if they answer, and then if not) or, should we set a phone appointment for later in the day?”
