Buyer Insights, Sales Prospecting

Words Decision Makers Love to Hear

Decision makers don't care about your product's speed, specifications, or efficiency. They don't care about the wonderful methodology you use.

Your offering is simply a tool. They care only about the results your offering delivers for them.

Buyers are particularly attracted to phrases that are linked to their business goals and objectives. Start speaking in these terms and you'll definitely attract their attention:

  • good value propositionsIncreased revenues or profitability
  • Faster time to market
  • Decreased costs
  • Improved operational efficiency
  • Revitalizing the organization
  • Enhancing customer loyalty
  • Increased market share
