Handling Objections

Handling objections is an integral skill in good sales copywriting.

Objections

Whenever a person reads a piece of sales copy, many questions would pop up in his mind in attempt to “protect” him from “losing his money”. This is a natural behavior, and if you know how to handle these objections effectively in your copy as they emerge, you will be reaping in massive rewards.

Here’s a couple of commonly used techniques for handling objections:

1) Testimonials

Social proof is something almost everyone looks for when they wish to buy a product. The more convincing and authentic the testimonial seems, the more they will believe the product is good. Try to include testimonials with snapshots of the buyer; video testimonials are even better.

2) FAQS

Having a frequently asked questions section helps greatly in overcoming any objections that appear. Here you can address all the common misconceptions that may sprout up such as how to use the product, who is the product right for and price concerns.

3) Post scripts (P.S)

P.S or Post scripts have been used extensively in sales letters to boost conversions. Before clicking the “Add to cart” button people will usually have a final line of defense which prevents them from making the purchase. If you have a couple of post scripts ready, you can give them that final nudge to make the purchase.

4) Good reasons to buy

A personal favorite of mine, this section gives your readers a couple of good reasons to help them rationalize their purchase and greatly boost your profits.

Incorporate these great tools for handling objections in your sales copy and you’ll soon see a soar in your sales.

I have been a teacher all my life. That doesn't just mean in School! I taught my brothers to ride bikes and go camping in the mountains. I taught Football, Cricket, Squash, Sailing, Climbing and Karate. In BNI I became the Education Coordinator. With my Property Business I laid on Investment Seminars. I taught my sons to Fish for Carp. And I still teach Maths and Physics to students who want to go to University to study Medicine or Engineering. Now I am teaching people the things I am learning online.
