Sound bites (by Big Al)

Politicians use it. Newscasters use it.
Advertisers use it. Shouldn’t you?

What am I talking about? I’m talking
about “sound bites.”

What are sound bites? They are just
little bits of the conversation that
stand out in the prospects’ minds – and
these bits of information are the only
things prospects remember.

Here is an example of a sound bite.

When George Bush was running for
president, he made a long campaign
speech to a group. One of the things he
said was:

“Read my lips. No new taxes!”

This small part of the speech was
reported in the news for several days.

Everyone knew the phrase,

“Read my lips. No new taxes!”

Can you remember anything else from that
long speech? No. All you can remember
was the sound bite,

“Read my lips. No new taxes!”

Commercial advertisers know the power of
sound bites. They work hard on catchy
phrases, repeat them often, and then
hope that sound bite will stick in your
mind. Some examples?

“Winston tastes good like a cigarette
should.”

“Things go better with Coke.”

“Burger King: Home of the Whopper.”

“You deserve a break today.”

What is interesting about the above
examples is that all of them were
created over 20 years ago! We still
remember them.

Sound bites are a great way to
communicate. Prospects will choose to
remember only bits of our presentation.
Make it easy for your prospects. Give
them catchy, easy-to-remember sound
bites that create a desire to purchase
your products or to join your
opportunity.

Let’s get started with some real life
examples of sound bites that I enjoy.
It’s easier to get the feel for sound
bites by experiencing them.

Are you getting the feeling of how sound
bites can work for your business?

All of the above examples were for
products. It’s easy to come up with
three or four great sound bites for
every one of your products or services,
right? Simply pass on these sound bites
to your distributors and watch your
retail sales increase.

But what about opportunity sound bites?
Wouldn’t it be great to have plenty of
opportunity sound bites for prospecting
and presentations?

Of course.

So one of the best skills to learn is
the magic of creating sound bites that
your downline can use for instant
results.
