3 Compelling Questions

emily-morter-8xAA0f9yQnE-unsplashYou already know that asking the right questions will uncover needs and help to guide the conversation.

But -

When you’re talking with a prospect who is reluctant to give you the critical information to move forward -

How do you find out what’s REALLY important to your prospect?

Ask one of 3 compelling “high-gain” questions, like

1.) “What is the ONE thing you would change…”

Or -

2.) “What is your greatest concern…”

This is Important

It might be difficult, but; stay silent until she answers your question.  

Then there is the third compelling high-gain question.

Let’s say the prospect is considering the purchase of a new copy machine.

To get her honest opinion of her current copier, question #3 works. Really works.

Compelling question #3

3.) “On a scale of one to 10 with 10 being the best, how would you rate your current copier?”

After you hear the answer, ask this question:

  • “What would it take to make the copier a 10?”

(And now it is critical to remain silent until after you hear the answer.)

The answer will let you know how you can earn the sale.
