“It's not about you. It's not about your goods and services. It's about your prospects, your ideal customers, their pain points, their issues. The more time, energy, and effort you put into that, the more in alignment you're going to be as it pertains to your pricing.”

Key Takeaways:
“As we go through that exercise, we can spend an entire day just on positioning factors, because we have to have unique positioning factors that are designed to resonate with someone, not everyone. And if we can align those positioning factors, put them in alignment with the belief systems, the motivations of their ideal prospects, they're going to be in better shape.” - Stormie Andrews
“When we get into that positioning in the marketplace, we can find that market gap that sets the users of the ‘world's best buyer persona’ that sets them apart from their competitors, they market on that unique positioning that they have within the market. And that becomes their value proposition that can become their TINB (There Is No B), where pricing isn't the number one driver.” - Stormie Andrews
“What if we build a persona where we build resources for the initial influencer, and then we create and build a packet that they can download and give to the CFO that addresses their problems, their issues, their concerns, their motivations. That makes the world or at least that it's designed to speed up the sales process and make for a much smoother sales process.” - Stormie Andrews
