If you want to grow business, you have two options: Throw away sales, or learn to create false choices.
How? By providing black-or-white options with no middle ground. Prospects feel empowered with choice. But since you create the options, you ensure they always choose the one you prefer.
The trick is to make your choice a no-brainer while phrasing options in a way that customers don’t feel manipulated. For example:
- "Sign up for our proven health improvement program now, or you might find yourself making the same unsuccessful weight-loss resolutions year after year."
- "You can now purchase our all-natural, pesticide-free baby food at your local grocery store—or continue taking risks with your child’s health."
- "You now have a choice: Speak with us today about maximizing your RRSP contributions, or start writing a cheque for the government."
True, such false choices can sometimes seem heavy-handed. But they work.
Knowing this, you can continue to write unpersuasive copy, or you can introduce false choices to see significant improvements in your sales.
