PEOPLE DON’T SPEND BIG MONEY TO SOLVE SMALL PROBLEMS
Expecting people to take big, bold actions and spend large amounts of money on something trivial isn’t wise. You must create a contrast between what’s happening today and what could materialise.
The problem must become big, bright and clear if you want people to get excited by the solution.
When the problem is clear, the solution must be elegant and complete with captivating attention. There’s no point in showing people a compelling future if you can’t deliver everything needed to achieve it.
Too many businesses sell components for solving a problem or achieving a result rather than packaging up everything needed.
ALL PEOPLE HAVE THEIR OWN SET OF VALUES
If something isn’t linked to our values, there will always be an excuse for why we can’t proceed. If something is in line with our values, there’s no stopping us from making it happen.
Before you can sell an outcome or solution, you must meet people where they are and take them on a journey.
It’s important to start where they are, explore the first few steps without jumping straight to conclusions.
- To become oversubscribed, people need to know that you can solve their important problems in a full and remarkable way. The problem can’t be small, and the solution can’t be less than what’s needed to reach the desired outcome.
That’s it for today. Tomorrow, we will read brand new principle PRINCIPLE #8: NOTHING BEATS BEING POSITIVELY REMARKABLE.
Up to now, we read 7 principles
- ONLY OVERSUBSCRIBED BUSINESSES MAKE A PROFIT.
- THE ONLY PEOPLE THAT MATTER ARE YOUR PEOPLE.
- FIRST MAKE YOUR MARKET THEN MAKE YOUR SALES.
- PEOPLE BUY WHEN THE CONDITIONS ARE RIGHT.
- BE DIFFERENT AND SET YOUR OWN RULES.
- VALUE IS CREATED IN THE ECOSYSTEM
- MEET PEOPLE WHERE THEY ARE, SPEAK TO THEM IN THEIR LANGUAGE
