Want to know how to read your clients’ minds?

I want to share with you a great resource on how to practically read the minds of your clients, so you can design exactly the kind of offerings they are craving.

The way to become a mind reader is first to stop wanting to read their minds and actually ask them what they’re thinking.

How easy is that? Ask your ideal clients what they want and then simply give it to them.

Yet, most business owners don’t do this. And if you could just do one thing to improve your earnings and impact with your clients, it would be to ask your clients what they want.

The specific resource I am talking about here is the one-question survey.

If you want to see an example of it in action then click on this link and take my one question survey.

You will notice that I chose a broad and open-ended question because posing a question in this way gives the person answering an opportunity to give you their most current top-of-mind answer. This will provide you with some incredible intel on what they want help with now around your area of expertise.

If you ever wonder what to write about in your newsletter, or what the topic of your teleseminar should be, or what your signature speech should be about – wonder no more! Just do a one question survey by duplicating what I do using Survey Monkey.

And if you don’t have a list, don’t worry, take your one question survey to a networking event and simply ask live.

Here’s my assignment to you:

  1. Formulate your one, broad and open-ended question around your area of expertise
  2. Create a Survey Monkey survey and send it out to your list, Facebook friends or members of a community you’re a part of
  3. Invest 15-30 minutes of your time to review the answers and pick out the top 2-3 themes
  4. Create a teleseminar on your favorite of these topics and offer your services as a solution

So let’s get started right now.

What would be a question you’d like to know from your audience? Post it here on my blog.

    Question: what are the challenges or obstacles that you perceive are in the way of you being totally you, every day, every time?

  6. Hey Cliff,

    Since your survey question is going to sales organizations already.

    Hope this helps.
