Some people have the magic touch when it comes to creating relationships and new business opportunities. Others seem to struggle.
What sets the two camps apart? Its the way we communicate and the language we use.
Some people seem to have the knack for effective business communications like networking, sales, or customer relations. For the rest, it seems that theres a rather steep learning curve standing in the way of consistent and predictable interpersonal communication effectiveness.
Thats a mouthful, so lets look at it like this.
We want to be able to say the right thing or ask the right question at the right time. Just think… the possibilities would be endless.
The learning curve may be unavoidable, but it doesnt have to remain as steep.
There is a systematized approach to effective business communication called the Language of Success. The language of success helps the user say the right thing and ask the right question at the right time.
Although this language of success is not secret, it may as well be.
Were not taught this way of communicating in our schools, and very few parents know enough about the language of success to be able to pass it along to the next generation.
This secret language, once learned, will allow you to talk about your business in a whole new way and think about your business in a whole new way.
The language of success is applicable to nearly every area of your marketing, sales and client acquisition activities. It can produce a dramatic shift in your business networking effectiveness.
When applied to selling, the language of success will help you clear the pathway to yes. At the same time you will be exponentially more effective in uncovering a no that was going to happen anyway.
This aspect of the language of success will help you reduce sales related stress while shortening your selling cycles.
The language of success will provide you with a format that will help you give your contacts what they really want a clear understanding of who you are, what you do, and what separates you from your competition— while at the same time avoiding what they dont wantunnecessary information, or a sales pitch.
Although the approach differs slightly when marketing the basic success formula remains the same.
This language is based on a user friendly system and can be adapted easily to other marketing activities like writing proposals or copy.
The language of success leaves the old fashioned convincing and influencing model of business communication where it belongs in the past.
Every business person and everyone in the workplace need to learn and master this language if they want to be recognized and rewarded for the real value they provide.
How you communicate makes all the difference. People might not initially comprehend the value of your service or expertise. If they dont get it they wont reward it.
The language of success will help you create an authentic, emotional connection with new contacts. Without that emotional connection, these people will not be moved to action.
Some of the “rules” of the Language of Success are so simple it will make you laugh until you experience just how big a difference these small shifts in your current business language can make.
