How to Show Conviction and Authority in Your Marketing

This week Iíd like to talk to you about how to show conviction and authority in your marketing - did you know there is a way of BEING that literally makes or breaks your ability to attract clients in large numbers?

This week Iíd like to talk to you about how to show conviction and authority in your marketing. Did you know there is a way of BEING that literally makes or breaks your ability to attract clients in large numbers? Many self employed people donít use it and, as a result, are literally letting prospective clients slip through their fingers, day in and day outóeven if they have done a lot of marketing and networking, and even if they have lots of prospects.

To avoid letting prospects slip through your fingers, you need to have serious conviction about what you offer. If thereís no certainty on your end, then a prospect is simply not going to be certain either that working with you is the answer to their problems. Theyíll question whether you are really good at what you do and then decide to keep looking.

Hereís an example of what happened to me a few years ago, after going to see my dentist. For months, Iíd been researching some light cosmetic dentistry done to improve my smile. During my routine dental checkup and cleaning, I asked ďDr. SmithĒ if he performed cosmetic dentistry. Now, before I tell you what happened, let me explain his typical behavior. He was naturally very outgoing, charming, and did good work (as far as I could tell from the routine cleanings.) He told jokes, was jovial and seemed pretty confident all around. But something happened when I asked him if he did cosmetic dentistry.

Dr. Smithís behavior changed, almost on a dime. He looked away, mumbled something about being in business for 20 years and of course he did cosmetic dentistry, and that he did it well. And then that was it. Nothing else. The strange thing was his words were no longer enthusiastic and confident. They turned empty and uninspiring, and I wasnít sure how to read the situation.

Whatever had happened, my gut feeling told me not to work with him. Right then and there, in just one sentence, he lost thousands of dollars worth of potential business. I knew by the manner in which he spoke that if I was to go forward with the cosmetic dentistry, I wasnít going to be using Dr. Smith. He simply had not convinced meónot even close. In fact, quite the opposite.

Hereís what I have discovered from that experience and countless other experiences Iíve had, just watching entrepreneurs talk about their abilities:

-††††††††† Prospects want to work with people who are CERTAIN about their abilities.

-††††††††† Prospects want to work and learn from an AUTHORITY on a subject.

-††††††††† Prospects are looking for someone CONFIDENT about the results they offer.

-††††††††† Prospects are silently begging to be LED!

Your Client Attraction Assignment:

From this moment forward, you cannot afford to be wishy-washy about what you offer. Youíve got to have total conviction about what you do. Not only that, you have got to express that conviction in a way that makes the prospect feel confident about your abilities.

You see, your job is not to sell. Your job is to be so quietly self-assured that you convince prospects to get out of their own way to work with you. The way you do that is by building trust, showing authority on your topic, and expressing your capability about the results theyíll get with you. And thatís all in your way of BEING.

Now, a caveat. This doesnít mean that you become overly zealous, or over confident. Thatís just a ridiculous turnoff and it would send prospects running in the other direction. Just be yourself, but speak with conviction and certainty.

One more thing. I would recommend that you not tell a prospect you can do something that you canā just to close the sale. Some sales gurus will tell you to do this, and then figure it out later, but I donít agree. Itís out of integrity and we are looking for authentic selling here. Itís better to gently turn away that prospect and move on to the next one.

So, be yourself. Be a leader, and start speaking with conviction from this moment forward. It doesnít take muchBusiness Management Articles, and yet I guarantee youíll start attracting more clients than you are now. It works!
