WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOU:
If you’re a Sage, you don’t need to dumb things down for your audience and you definitely don’t need gimmicks to make the sale…your expertise is more than enough.
Your people like facts so don’t hype things up. Be sure to communicate the tangible, measurable benefits that your services provide, and if you can back the benefits up with research or case studies, all the better.
The ‘hard sell’ probably won't work with your audience. Instead, present them with all the information they to make their own informed decision.
