Everybody Favourite Radio Station

imageI first this a long time ago from Brian Tracy.

What’s everybody favourite radio station?

From a sales perspective, here it is – WIIFM – aka “What Is It In For Me?

Human nature is such that they think first about their personal benefits. They think about themselves first before others.

That’s why I always try my best to put other people’s benefits first if I want them to open themselves up to me.

They say that god gives us 2 ears and 1 mouth for a simple reason.

To listen more and talk less.

Listen to other people’s needs more…and talk less about yourself.

It’s counter-intuitive…but it will help you establish a better rapport with your prospect.

This should always be one of the guiding principles of any copywriter. If you talk too much about yourself and how great your product is, rather than what the product can do for the prospect, it won’t sell very well.

We should try to b a good seller but a talkative. The more we speak more we get the loss. The less we speak the fascinating words we can earn more.

I agree with Tom, You’ve got to put your ear to the ground and do the research before you put pen to paper on any piece of copy. A guiding principle both for negotiation, copywriting, and probably most of the disciplines that fall under the sales and marketing umbrella.

“Always try to be a good listener” that is what is the toughest not only for one person, but for thousands. We always try to be very bossy at times which prove us dearly. I think we should always listen as to what others want to convey so that they can express in a nicer manner which might be able to turn beneficial to us!!

“Always is a good listener than a good speaker” that’s what the policy applies for every individual. I feel Radio stations are doing some fantastic jobs by broadcasting some ethical talks & versus which proves very beneficial for people. Also, there are certain amount of people who is very possessive in their talks & don’t want to change in their behavior. Firmness is crucial but not at the cost of important issues which can even ruin your life!! Agreed?

I don’t understand why people for unnecessary reasons want to show their extra knowledge. They just for no reasons want to peep into someone’s work place, act smart & destroy all the work. Let’s make them aware that smart people cannot be wise, but wise people can be extra smart if needed. They just lack that potential, lead in criticism & want to show that they are superior.

As much as I agree with the point of listening more and talking less, a good amount of the time people don’t know what they actually want.

I agree with Tom, You’ve got to put your ear to the ground and do the research before you put pen to paper on any piece of copy. A guiding principle both for negotiation, copywriting, and probably most of the disciplines that fall under the sales and marketing umbrella.
Again awesome, inspiring, concise, informative and enthralling. I had to continue reading even though I wanted to stop to grab a notepad to take notes. And then, when the post ended the intelligent comments were fantastic.
