What if I told you I sell farm fresh eggs. How might you respond to that?
Great answer. Who cares that I sell farm fresh eggs? Why does that matter to you?
People don’t care about the product or service you’re selling until they know what’s in it for them. It can have all the bells and whistles and be absolutely amazing and even sold at a great price – but until they know how it benefits them, they simply don’t care.
That’s why we have the “So what?” test. It allows you to uncover the real benefits of your offer and the features of what you sell.
How does it work? You simply make a statement, then ask yourself “So what?” as in “So what? What does this do for them?” until there are no answers left. This simple test will help you start telling your customers what the product or service does for THEM.
