One of the best ways to sell something is to tap into the already-existing beliefs of your target audience.
The idea comes from the late, great Eugene Schwartz, and it goes like this:
Instead of trying to "manufacture" fears or desires... you only have to uncover what people REALLY want and give it to them.
It's that simple.
(Yet we often tend to over-complicate it)
For example, take people's distrust towards car salesmen...
Or insurance agents...
Or even "well-respected" professions like lawyers, accountants, and doctors.
Most people totally "surrender" themselves to these professionals...
But deep down, they're often afraid that they're getting ripped off.
Their lawyer over-charges them for work they didn't do…
...Their accountant "leaves" out a few key things from their tax returns that end up triggering an audit from tax authorities…
...And many people are terrified of getting misdiagnosed by their doctor.
So their already-existing belief is very real!
And that's exactly what Eric Betuel - one of Boardroom's secret weapons - did in the sales letter I'll be breaking down today.
It's called "Twelve Smiling Swindlers", and it's an excellent example of how to sell RELIEF to your target audience's already-existing beliefs...
So that they stop ignoring their frustrating situation, and do something about it instead.
