Ep 072 - Ask For Permission, Then Close The Sale
If you want to close more sales, you need to ask for permission to pitch
I bet you’ve been pitched something on social media at some point, regardless of whether you’re an entrepreneur or not. Someone saw you were a coach or into a certain niche and sent you a direct message mentioning how they could help you without ever asking you what you need or gaining your permission to pitch them.
Everybody pitches like that these days, and if you’re an entrepreneur then you need to separate yourself from the pack instead of following the crowd. So how do you do that?
One way is by asking good questions to get them interested, then asking for permission to pitch your product. With that permission, your prospect gives you an invitation into their circle.
In this episode, I talk about why it’s so important to ask for permission and how you should do it. I give you a step-by-step process using a recent exchange I had as an example, and I share a wonderful experience I had with a server at a local restaurant who asked for permission and made my visit so much better!
