How to Sell Your Product or Service When it s NOT the Cheapest

It just makes sense that you'll get more business when your product or service is the cheapest, right? But what happens when you're significantly higher than your competitors. Are you going to get shut out of the market?

Often these days there is someone who is selling a product or service just like yours, but at a ridiculously low price. Maybe you're offering a service people at Fiverr are offering for $5 (that's $4 after Fiverr takes their $1 fee!) Right now I'm charging $99 to write your press release, which is the lowest price I've offered since 1999. But there are others who are writing press releases for $10, $7, even $5.

Chances are YOUR business is experiencing the same problem. Even though your product is priced as low as you can without going broke, any customer can Google the product and find somebody selling the same product below invoice. That could be because the business is giving away the product to bring more customers in or they're a BIG firm who buys the product by the millions and gets a huge discount from the manufacturer.

Whatever the case -- there IS a way to convince customers YOU have the best VALUE, even if your price isn't the lowest.

One example of how it's done is a friend who designs web sites for $70 per hour. A client was about to hire him when they heard of a teenager working part-time charging $10 per hour. My friend explained that when the $10-hour designer made a mess out of their website, the client would have to pay all over again to have a pro fix and design their site the right way.

The client realized paying $70 per hour would be their best VALUE:

* Fewer headaches. Their site would be done right. * Faster results. The experienced designer would have the site up sooner and ready to do business. * Better site would mean bigger sales, probably paying for the designer's fee right away

The client thought why should I mess around taking a chance on saving a little money in the design. What I really need is a good site, done right and quickly, and get on with running my business and increasing sales.

This story is a good example of how you can convince customers your higher price is the best deal: * Customers can TRUST you to do the job right * Your better SERVICE will make the price worth it * You are EASIER to work with * The customer will get RESULTS

Come to think of it. I think I'll have one of those guys who writes a sales letter for $7 do their best. Then I'll post MY sales letter next to theirs. Next to that I'll feature testimonials from customers who rave about how they trust me, love my service, and find it easy to get results.

Market to Your Customers Senses
You can really ramp up the effectiveness of your marketing by playing to your customers' senses. Have your website, printed brochure, email communications, and TV commercials talk about how your product looks, sounds, smells, and feels. A lot of top car sales people will start a test drive with a customer by saying mmm I never get tired of the smell of a new car. The sales person who rides in new cars all day never really notices the smell, but she knows the customer probably hasn't been in...

Should You Start a LOCAL Business
? For the past 15 years all talk in marketing has centered around making money online. But along the way we may have forgotten one of the great truths realized many years ago. It's often MUCH easier to make a local business go than to succeed in an online business. As the recession marched on, I noticed a number of highly successful online entrepreneurs who began to offer one-on-one services to their local business community. Online your customers can jump from one site to the next,...

B2B or B2C How They Differ
How is marketing to a business different from marketing to consumers? The basics are the same. You are looking for people who need a problem solved, a problem YOUR product, service, or idea can fix. In both B2B (business to business) and B2C (business to consumer) the advertising formula goes like this: 1. Here is a problem you have. 2. If you don't act now, your problem will get worse. 3. Our product will fix your problem (or make it better.) 4. Here's how wonderful your life will be...

Door to Door Sales Might Be YOUR Ticket
Door to door sales -- or canvassing as it's officially called -- scares the dickens out of most people. But I've found some folks get really excited about telling their story to as many people as they can, including going through a neighborhood and knocking on doors. Even if you NEVER plan to canvass, the basics every good door to door salesperson knows can come in handy anytime you have to meet prospective customers face to face. Dress like your customers. If you're going door to door in a...

Modern Low Key Marketing Methods That Work
Yes, you could pony up one million dollars to place ads on Google, Network TV, and in what's left of our major newspapers. But how about low-cost modern marketing methods that are cheap or free? In the past that would have meant mailing postcards, placing classified ads, and giving speeches to groups. Today we can use the same low-tech spirit to leverage modern media. 1) Take a grass roots approach to social media. Be a friend, fan, or follower to as many people and businesses as you can....

How to Market to Different Personality Types
Anybody who has been selling for more than a day knows you run into different personality types. Some people are pushovers who buy just as soon as you ask. Others take forever, have no problem gobbling up your time, then eventually wander away not buying. There have been lots of studies done on the various major personality types that make up your customers. * About 17% are impulse buyers. If it feels good, they do it. Many are headstrong individuals who get an idea and run with it. For...

Do You Need an Ad Agency or Do It Yourself
? One of the questions I get most often is how do I get my ads on TV? The same goes for advertising your business in magazines, in newspapers, on cable TV, and on major sites. The easy way is to look up an Advertising Agency in your area and ask them to help you. Traditionally you need a BIG ad budget for an ad agency to work with you -- $250,000 per year on up. These days times are tough and there are little agencies that will work with you for much less. Add to that TV, networks, and print...

Want an Easy Way to Sell Try eBay
Want an Easy Way to Sell? Try eBay A while back I was talking with a 70 year-old grandmother who happened to mention she is a PowerSeller on eBay. She's been selling on eBay for several years and makes a good full-time income doing it. What do you sell? I asked her. Anything I can find, she replied. That got me thinking. Like most Americans I've got a house full of stuff I could do just as well without. I'm a musician, so there are several guitars that could go, some shoes and boots, and...
