Join John Ullmen for an in-depth discussion in this video Demonstrate pain and gain, part of Influencing Others.
…The fifth method is, demonstrate pain and gain.…Penalties and rewards, losses and profits, negative or positive implications.…The pains and gains that matter to us are very motivating.…I put pain first as a reminder that people generally tend to be more…motivated, often two to three times more, to avoid a loss than seek a gain.…This is why the additional fees…for airline tickets, hotels, online purchases, rental…cars, and so on, are tacked on at the end of the transaction.…By then we don't want to lose all that time and effort…we've put in and have to start all over again somewhere else.…
Here's what to do.…First, generate answers to these questions.…What concerns, risks, headaches, or problems do you prevent?…If they follow your advice, what penalties can they avoid?…And, how does your recommendation help them achieve what they want?…What rewards can they gain?…Second and finally, choose the pains and…gains most relevant to them, and emphasize those.…Use this method to reduce your pain and increase your gain.…
