Using “Influence” Techniques To Persuade Prospect To Become Clients with Evan Beach

Three important questions every advisor should answer:

  • Do you think you provide a good, valuable, and life-changing service?
  • Do you think your clients are better off with you than without you, even after they pay?
  • Do you find that even though they’re better off with you, they still need a little nudge to make the decision to work with you?

If you answered yes to any (or all) of these questions, then here’s the harsh truth you need to hear (and probably already know):

Getting prospects to become clients requires more than expertise. It requires persuasion.

And if you can learn to persuade more effectively, then more people can actually benefit from what you have to offer.

Your life-changing impact will be greater and more widespread.

Yet, while most advisors have been taught the expertise side of the equation, they have never learned effective persuasion techniques.

In the popular book Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion, Robert Cialdini presents research on six psychological principles used to persuade prospects to become buyers.

Fortunately, Evan Beach took the research from the book and created a version specifically for financial advisors.

In this episode, he’ll reveal how financial advisors can use influence techniques to persuade more prospects to become clients.
