Do you really know how to persuade unsure clients to buy more?
So you’ve sold them hard, you’ve talked to your clients, they seem very interested, they ask you to send the contract and then… nothing happens.
Either they’re waiting on something, maybe it’s internal politics, they just won’t move forward, they are on the fence. How do you get those guys to buy?
How to Persuade your Clients to Buy More in 3 Easy Steps
It totally sucks when clients don’t want to buy from you! Especially when they seemed really into it in the beginning and asked you to send a contract over. Here are 3 steps on how to persuade your clients to buy and to help you psychologically deal with the fact that people aren’t buying from you:
#1 Raise Your Prices
Experiment 27 is constantly changing its prices, its products, and its offerings to help us find a better product-market fit and also because this is a really good strategy to get people to buy.
Basically, anytime somebody has asked how to persuade clients and we’ve told them that we’re raising our prices at the end of the month or changing our service so we won’t be able to work in the exact format that we’ve talked about, it’ll get them to buy a lot.
I thought that was super sketchy when I first heard it, I thought that would be weird and push back clients but if you’re actually changing your prices then it’s fine.
The reason why we change prices is because we’re trying to deliver the most value to the most people, which means we have to work with much fewer clients and deliver maximum value to those guys.
If X27 is not is not delivering a 10x ROI to our clients, I don’t want to be a part of that client engagement.
We need to vet upfront and one of the easiest ways to do that is to keep raising your prices until the clients that wouldn’t be successful can’t work with you.
For instance, with Outreach, it used to be 15 meetings a month for $2000, then we went 10 meetings a month for $2000 and now its 8 meetings a month for $2000 on a six-month contract
Soon, we’ll probably make it a year-long contract and we’re raising our marketing minimums every single month.
So, remember to constantly update your price and tell your clients about it, especially the ‘on the fence’ ones because it’s going to get them to buy.
#2 Ignore Them and Focus on Other Projects
One of the reasons why this might be an issue for you is because you’re not working with enough clients.
You need to be meeting with 20 to 40 people a week, you should be back-to-back especially if you’re just starting your company.
One of the easiest ways to do that is with cold emails, but the short answer here to get more clients in your pipeline is to send more emails to book more meetings, so you won’t worry about how to persuade them, you’ll worry about the guys that want to buy right now.

#3 Follow Up Once a Month Automatically
I went through it in What To Do When A Prospect Goes Dark (With Examples), our follow-up strategy. So what we do when a client goes dark on us and it’s a drip that we use using Yesware that follows up and sends them another article from our blog or from our Youtube Channel every month and tries to get them on a call as soon as possible.
You want clients that are wanting to work with you because they have a real need and because they’re in love with the service that you offer.
You should be only working with clients that truly want to work with you, in an ideal situation and following up automatically with the other clients.
Those are the 3 steps on how to persuade your clients to buy, raise your price or ignore them and focus on other clients and projects and follow-up automatically.
