Key Takeaways:

  • The reason a video might not perform well on social media is often due to its intro being too long, too confusing, or too niched. [02:13]
  • When doing paid advertising, start with Facebook and YouTube ads because they help you validate way quicker. [13:40]
  • Organic marketing is unpredictable, unlike paid advertising. [14:04]
  • If you lack knowledge in sales and conversion, you might generate a ton of leads from organic marketing, but they still won’t convert because you don’t know how to turn those viewers into customers. [14:27]
  • Consultative selling simplifies the process because it builds rapport and trust with your prospects. Instead of feeling pressured, they feel motivated to work with you. [20:48]   
  • The first person to speak after the price is mentioned loses. [35:27]
  • In the psychology of sales objections, humans tend to give reasons that do not make them sound weak. [38:34]
