Unveiling #ClassyClose Tip #2: Overcoming the “Can’t Afford It” Objection

Hey there, fellow sales aficionados! Today, I’m thrilled to unveil the second installment of our #ClassyClose series, where we delve into the art of overcoming common sales objections with grace and finesse. Are you ready? Let’s dive right in!

Q: Vanessa, what do you recommend when someone says they “can’t afford it”?

A: Ah, the dreaded “can’t afford it” objection – a familiar refrain in the world of sales. But fear not! Here are three strategic steps to tighten up your sales process and address this objection head-on:

#1 – Assess your targeting: First things first, double-check that your marketing efforts are laser-focused on the right audience. Take the time to calculate the potential cost of your prospect not investing in your solution, as well as the undeniable value they stand to gain by doing so. This intimate understanding should permeate your marketing messaging, ensuring it speaks directly to your ideal prospect. Remember, it’s okay to exclude the wrong audience – quality over quantity is key!

#2 – Pre-qualify: Before jumping into an enrollment conversation, take proactive steps to pre-qualify your prospects. Whether it’s through an application process or a brief qualifying call, ensure that each individual is genuinely qualified and ready to invest. This preliminary screening will save you valuable time and energy, preventing wasted efforts on unqualified leads.

#3 – Build the case before pricing: Shift the focus away from pricing and towards understanding your prospect’s unique challenges and goals. By delving deep into their world and uncovering the true value of your solution, you’ll preemptively address any affordability concerns. During your conversation, ask probing questions to unearth the personal and professional benefits they stand to gain. This approach not only builds rapport but also establishes the intrinsic value of your solution long before pricing is discussed.

So, the next time you hear the dreaded “I can’t afford it,” remember – the sale was lost long before that moment. By tightening up your targeting, pre-qualifying your prospects, and building the case before pricing, you’ll position yourself for success and minimize objections along the way.
