How Sprint Exploded Their Sales And How You Can Too!

Sprint has been doing something brilliant that quite frankly, EVERY sales rep should be doing too!

They used a really powerful (and often neglected tactic) to convey a point.

What was the point?

A 1% Difference ISN’T Worth Double The Price

Now most organizations would stop at that catchy line. Not Sprint!

They used several analogies (via several different ads) to help us visualize and realize how ridiculous it would be;

To charge twice as much for a difference that really didn’t amount to much.

They showed two identical Christmas Trees. One with a $50 price tag, the other at $100.

The characters had fun with it and showed us how ridiculous that would be and;

How the same thing applies to your wireless provider.

They showed a barber shop and introduced the same ridiculous point of paying double because the haircut was 1% better.

In both cases they also backed it up with a study to add credibility to their message.

Note: Repetition is a super important thing when it comes to our messaging. People need to hear things more than once. The key is in varying the method so it doesn’t come across as repetitive.

Analogies (like the ones use by Sprint) are a powerful form of “EVIDENCE” to help reduce doubt, skepticism and hesitation.

They also help people visualize and understand your offering in a much deeper way.

Analogies are 1 of 12 forms of “EVIDENCE” we’ll be talking about in our upcoming Prospect Like A Pro program.
