In a world with so many choices, can you blame buyers who have such a hard time making decisions? Adam meets Ted McKenna, probably the worlds leading expert on customer indecision, and co-author of the hot new business book “The JOLT Effect” - how high performers overcome customer indecision.
In this podcast, Ted explains the origins of “over-choice” - and how to spot the signs of a buy who is struggling to choose. The issue is not FOMO (Fear of Missing out) but more FOMU (Fear of Messing up). In fact, learning into the fear can make things worse. Better to not say anything!
He outlines the four-point playbook - yes, JOLT is also an acronym - of how you can get a customer to move forward.
It’s also not just for acquisition sales. Adam and Ted talk about how understanding the issues help customer success teams as well as new logo sales.
It’s a fascinating talk for all that are interested in sales performance.
