4 Steps To Hypnotize Your Business Prospects
As business owners, our fantasy is to be able to cause our
prospective customers to do exactly what we tell them, when we tell
them: buy our products, refer more business to us, increase the
frequency of orders, blog about their experience with our company, etc.
Many people are constantly searching for the magic system that will
easily bring piles of riches to your door easily, regularly, and
automatically. We love hearing about the latest get-rich-quick guru
success stories and dream that maybe this guru has our missing piece of
knowledge. We are ready, willing, and able to be hypnotized by their
promises. Why not use this same skill to improve your own business?
Key point: People that are searching for solutions to their problems are willing to be hypnotized by your offering. Here’s how to make your marketing hypnotic:
- Identify them. First, make sure you’re talking to the right audience. Focus where (and to who) you send your marketing message.
- Relax them. Tell them that their problems can be solved, and that you’ve been solving these problems for people like themselves. Let them experience the feeling of having their problem solved. Let them see that it’s not impossible and that they can start solving their problem today. Let them believe that there is “light at the end of their tunnel.”
- Overwhelm them. Start to hypnotize them by giving them more information than they can process (but not all at once): testimonials, case studies, graphics showcasing the winning solutions, graphs of increased results, etc. The key is to honestly present the information, but to deluge them with information, so that everywhere they look they see the answer they’ve been searching for. This is why extremely long landing pages are so effective – they get you hooked for information, and then you realize that there’s too much information to read all at one sitting, and start scrolling, and scrolling and see the buy now button over, and over again.
- Guide them. Tell them what specifically they need to do to make hypnotic suggestion a reality. If you’ve identified their pain, talked about it, and let them experience the reality of having their pain erased – they’re ready, willing, and able to take action NOW.
