Always Answer The Question In Their Minds.
Your Customers are full of questions about your product. Questions ranging from, “why they should buy your product and why should they trust you?” Therefore, ensure to answer their questions, it could by FAQ, creating content that addresses their anticipated questions, or be ready to answers all their questions during one-to-one conversation.
Stacking your credibility and testimonials helps to not limit the questions on people’s mind. Note that failure to provide answers can make you lose sales.
