Host Paul Petersen on CRM Radio interviews Patrick Renvoise, co-author of The Persuasion Code: How Neuromarketing Can Help You Persuade Anyone, Anywhere, Anytime and president and co-founder of SalesBrain the original neuromarketing agency. Paul and Pat discuss the research behind the current book (September of 2018) and the book that started it all, Neuromarketing: Understanding the Buy Buttons in Your Customer's Brain.
Patrick reveals why traditional thoughts into a buyer’s preference for a product is based on false research and how the Persuasion Code can be used by anyone to increase revenue if they understand the basic principles. For instance:
- There is solid research, clinical research, not hunches or opinions behind the current book's recommendations for sales and marketing tactics that win
- Selling isn't about pushing features and benefits, it's about asking questions to diagnose the prospect's problems
- There are only three stages of selling: Diagnosis, Selling and educating
- Educating helps the competitor as much as you the salesperson
- Selling without diagnosis is the surest way to fail
- Diagnosis should take up 80% of the discussion with the prospect
- Diagnosis of the pain is the first step in the sales process, without you will lsoe more than you win
