#468: Pricing Table Topics: 3 of Hearts – Prospect in a Pool of Buyers Who Have the Problem

This one is the 3 of Hearts from the Selling Value card deck. 

As you’re doing your prospecting, you have to decide who you’re going to reach out to for the prospecting. And since we know that buyers only buy products to solve problems that they have, what we should be thinking about is, well, where’s the community or the marketplace of people that actually have this problem.

So, if I were a moving company and I were trying to find companies that were trying to move, then there may be a way to say, “Hey, I want to go to commercial Realtors because I know commercial Realtors are aware of companies who are moving.” And so now I can get commercial Realtors to give me potential names or customer possibilities and that’s where I might go prospect.

“Prospect in that pool of buyers who you know have the problem that you can solve.”

– Mark Stiving

So, when you think about what your product is, you want to think about, where are the people who actually have the problem that I solve? As I mentioned last week, I’m lucky in that I think all companies have pricing problems. But notice I only talk to companies. I don’t talk to consumers because consumers don’t have pricing problems. Why would I ever prospect in a pool of consumers? 

So, prospect in that pool of buyers who you know have the problem that you can solve.

We hope you enjoyed this example of Pricing Table Topics. What you just heard was done without a script. If you want to get better at speaking about pricing and value, grab a deck of our cards, pick a card, read the saying, and then talk for one to two minutes about what that card says. You’ll become a better speaker and expert.
