The Power of Suggestion Close

By Mark Bowser

The Power of Suggestion Close is a way that you can help the prospect feel and visualize that they already own and are enjoying the product or service. All of us are all very susceptible to the suggestions or influences of other people. Imagine that you are at a basketball game and the fans are sitting in the stands with their hands on the laps quiet as an arena of mice. It is as if the fans are bored and oblivious to what is happening down on the court. Then, one sole fan stands up and starts yelling and cheering. Pretty soon, another fan stands up, and another, and another. Before long, the entire arena is cheering and yelling for their team. Enthusiasm is contagious! 

As sales professionals, we have to let the prospect feel our enthusiasm for our product or service. Zig Ziglar said that “Selling is a transference of feeling.” We can transfer our feelings to the prospect by creating emotional pictures for them to experience. For example, let’s say you sell vacation packages, you can say to the prospect, “You are really going to enjoy lounging on this beach. The sand is white as snow and feels so warm on your toes.” Or, let’s say that you sell homes. You might say, “You are really going to love living in this neighborhood. The schools are fantastic and the neighbors are very friendly.” Or, let’s say that you sell a service such as training seminars. You can say, “You are really going to love the confidence that you will have after the class knowing that you have the skills to succeed at closing the sale.” 

Using words such as “imagine,” “just think,” “you are going to love …” create the mental emotional pictures for the prospect. There are multiple ways to use the Power of Suggestion Close. Help the prospect feel and visualize ownership … and pretty soon they will. 

*ANNOUNCING: How would you like to impact thousands of people? Your words could be the deciding factor on whether someone changes their life and becomes a better leader … or not. We are looking for people to review my new leadership book, Thrown In, on Amazon. Now, I know that reviewing a book doesn’t really benefit you, but the couple of minutes it takes for you to do so will benefit thousands of other people. But what will benefit you is the book itself. I believe that everyone is a leader and we all can improve on being more influential. Thrown In will help you do exactly that! You can purchase the book at this link . In the Kindle version, Amazon has it built in and easy for you to give a review. For the paperback version, just revisit the book link after you have read it and there you will be able to place a review. Thank you.
