Once you know the OBSTACLE to acting on your service and the BENEFIT gained once they did, you want to get specific. You want to FOCUS on one aspect of the service or program or product you provided that really ‘stood out’ to your client.
Here then, is your third question. “Was there ONE thing about my services that was really significant . . . that caused you to enjoy the benefit you just mentioned?”
By asking your client to focus on just one thing, you make it easier for them to provide you with a testimonial.
Too often we ask, “Why did you like . . . ?” and they don’t know where to begin! It’s so easy to overwhelm someone. Instead, ask your client to focus on ONE thing . . . ONE aspect or ONE feature of your service that they feel might be the basis for their getting the benefit they just mentioned to you in response to question #2.
Focus . . . is powerful. Focus is also the key to discovering the basis for the benefit they’ve enjoyed from your services.
