Preempt the Objection, “Don’t need it.” Strategy 2 of 2

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.

Present a unique capability, and then offer to show how quickly it pays for itself (financially, subjectively, or emotionally).

You could initially use your company’s research facts and figures, if available, to provide some shock value to get their undivided attention. Or you could use standards of legitimacy (industry norms favorable to you) to give examples.

The best strategy is to use the prospective customer's facts and figures. Questions such as:

  • What does it cost when it happens?
  • How often does that happen?
  • How much hassle is that?
  • What does that do to morale?
  • How do people feel about it?
  • What does that do to productivity?

With the growing realization that there are costly needs to fill that can only be filled by your Unique Selling Point(s), you gain a competitive advantage while at the same time creating objections for your competitor to now have to handle.
