TSS #002: Specificity means more sales.

Jan 15, 2022

 

Hey 👋 - Justin here.

Welcome to the 2nd issue of The Saturday Solopreneur.

One tip on how to grow your audience and online business.

90 seconds to read.

Enjoy.

 


 

This week's tip: When selling products or services, specificity is your friend.

Online products and services come in all shapes and sizes.

From $50/hour consulting to $2,500 "Masterclass" style digital courses.

I've found that the most successful solopreneurs position their product or service to solve a very specific problem.

A problem you've learned about when talking to your prospects and customers.

Once you understand that problem, I recommend helping them get from point A to point B easily, quickly, and affordably.

Point A→ Point B

But, it must be clear to your prospective customers, exactly what they'll get.

And this can often be captured in the hero image of your product/service website, where you describe the benefits.

Let's take a look at two examples:

Bad example: Learn how to invest in the stock market

Better example: Learn how to make your first stock market investment in less than 3 minutes (with zero fees!)


The better example tells people:

What they'll accomplish: Make their first stock market investment

How long it will take them: Less than 3 minutes

Objection handler: With zero fees!

My favorite example of this comes from Harry Dry's Marketing Examples website where he breaks down JobBoardSheet.

Is your online product or service nebulous, or very specific?

If it's the former, try this formula:

Step 1: Explain the benefit your customers receive

Step 2: Explain exactly how you create that benefit

Step 3: Handle the most common objection in the copy

 


 

That's all for this Saturday. 1 simple online business tip in less than 90 seconds.

I won't mind and there are no hard feelings.

Alternatively, if you are enjoying this newsletter, the best compliment you could pay me would be to recommend it to a friend or share it with others on Twitter.

See you again next week.

Cheers,

Justin
