Improve New Customer Prospecting Success!

Dear Business Owner,

Ask anyone with a home or other small business to name their biggest challenge and effective prospecting will be #1. Yet, customer acquisition is the lifeblood of any successful business. 

Prospecting doesn’t have to be as difficult nor as “hit and miss” as it seems, once you understand that it is both an art and science.

Wouldn’t prospecting be easier if you could approach it from the point of view of the prospect?  Prospect Smarter gives you just that, insight into the mind of the prospectI guarantee that this book is unlike any book on prospecting and marketing you’ve read before or your money back!

No hype, no overblown promises, no oversimplified talking scripts.  Just 60 pages of insight into how prospects think about products, brands, purchasing.  See Table of Contents below. In fact, you will often recognize yourself when the tables are turned and you are the one being prospected.

Armed with an understanding of the customer value equation, purchasing process, target marketing, you will be motivated and energized to prospect with a renewed sense of purpose.  Not only are the key concepts discussed with examples, but each is followed by a hands-on exercise that allows you to apply the concept to your particular network marketing or MLM product.
