How to ASK the Right Questions in Your Business
When one of my mentors told me he got something that "dramatically" change the way he does business...
It got me curious.
He was talking about Ryan Levesque's Ask Method.
Most online marketers are only interested in selling without asking any questions.
Ryan's Ask method is totally different. It's like selling them without making them feel like you're selling them by asking questions.
The #1 Age-Old Business Secret
Here’s what I found out.
The ASK Method is a marketing methodology to better understand your market at a deep emotional level.
There are 3 major phases, choosing your market, asking what they want, then building it.
The ASK method allows you to better understand their pain, their needs, their wants, and desires. Moreover, it allows you to understand the different buckets that exist in your market, so you can create powerful messaging and a personalized product that is just perfect for each particular bucket.
By buckets, I mean different groups of people or segments that exist in your market. Now, whenever I bring up the idea of the ASK Method, people think that it’s all about asking people what they want and give it to them. One quote in particular that is attributed to Henry Ford, says: “If I ask people what they wanted, they would have told me faster horses.” (Even the idea of a car didn't exist then)
There is another quote by Steve Jobs: “People don’t know what they want until you show it to them”. You can’t just ask people what they want and give it to them. The devil’s in the details, so you can’t walk through the front door, but you want to walk through the side door. It all comes down to asking the right questions in the right way, at the right time. That’s what the ASK Method is all about.
Who is the ASK Method for?
The ASK Method is just perfect for you if you’re in one of the following 5 buckets. At the end of the day, the reason for using the ASK Method in your business is to better sell and better serve your audience by better understanding their needs, wants and desires, not just to improve your conversion.
1. If you’re just getting started: if you don’t know what market you’re trying to get into and you’re trying to figure out which market to pursue, the ASK method can help you identify the relative demand that exists in these different markets, so you can make a choice with confidence and clarity.
2. You already have a business: if you already have your own business but you don’t have much of an email list, the ASK Method can help you build that email list quickly, to grow your audience and grow your business.
3. You are a coach or consultant: this innovative method is also a very powerful tool that you can implement in your business if you already serve a small number of clients in a deep way and you want more leads. So, if you have a professional practice, you are a consultant, you are a coach, and you want more leads, the ASK Method can help you do that.
4. You have an established business and you serve hundreds, if not thousands of customers: if that’s you, then the ASK Method can help you scale further by going from one-size-fits-all messaging to beginning to ask questions when someone lands on your website, and then tailoring your messaging, emails you send, sales letters, and digital messaging that meets each individual in each bucket, to the specific needs of people.
5. You do marketing for other people: last but not least, if you are an agency, a marketing consultant, freelancer, and you do marketing for other people, then this method is something that you can implement for your clients. In fact, right now there is so much demand for implementing the ASK Method that this is the best opportunity that exists.
You can implement this method for businesses that have more money than time to invest in the process. This is a win-win situation for everyone involved.
Real Ask Method Stories
So what kind of results are people getting implementing the ASK Method in their business?
Let’s take each of these buckets one by one.
If you’re just getting started, you’ll probably hear about Alexis, who has just started her business from scratch and got from zero to six figures in less than 7 months. By starting with the ASK Method to understand her audience and then tailoring the messaging on her website and on her social media platforms, Alexis managed to scale her business dramatically.
All of this happened after Alexis started a business that has completely failed using other methods.
Additionally, if you’re looking to grow your email list and you want to ramp up the benefits your email list brings you, you must hear Jamal’s story. Jamal is just a regular guy like you and me who had his own small business. Using the ASK Method, Jamal managed to generate 10 thousand new email subscribers in less than a week. You’re going to see exactly how Jamal managed to do that.
If you serve a small number of clients in a deep way, you’re going to hear from Ian. Ian is someone who left his 6-figure corporate job to help people in a niche that he decided to pursue. He was literally 3 days away from going back to his old job and quitting his new venture, when he started to implement the ASK Method.
He started to see traction and see how his business is growing incredibly fast. Now, Ian is making far more than he was making in his last corporate job. As a matter of fact, he hasn’t looked back since.
Now, if you’re already selling to a large number of customers and you want to scale further, you’re going to hear from Charlie. Charlie is someone who, before implementing the ASK Method, has already managed to build a 6-figure business, making about $10k a month. In his testimonial, you’re going to hear how Charlie went from $10k a month to over $250k per month. His tiny little 6-figure business is now doing amazing, making over $2.5 million every single year in profits.
Lastly, if you do marketing for other people, if you are a consultant, you have a agency, or you are a freelancer, you’re going to hear how Tabatha quit her job to implement the ASK Method for other businesses and has since built a 6-figure solo consulting practice, working basically on her own, implementing this method for other clients.
Depending on what situation you’re in, you’re going hear from other entrepreneurs who are in the same boat that you’re in and you’re going to discover the results they’ve achieved using the power of the ASK Method.
The ASK Method Phenomenon
So why does this method work so well and how are so many people getting astounding results? It all comes down to 3 different things.
The first piece is discover. It all starts with understanding your market at a deep emotional level, not just the surface problem that you’re solving, but also what is the underlying pain that your clients are facing. Understanding better than your competition is a key if you want to succeed.
The second piece is based on echoing back the natural consumer language that your market is using. This is a language lesson here. One of the biggest opportunities that you have is to pay very close attention to the new wants of language that your market is using when you ask them questions in the form of interviews, surveys, quizzes or assessments. You need to understand not only what they’re saying, but how they’re saying it.
One of the things that my mentors taught me is that if you can articulate better than your prospect can articulate to themselves the pain that’s going on in their minds, the only question they’re going to ask you is: “What do I do about it?”. With this, you can create trust like nothing else, especially when you can demonstrate a deep level of empathy and understanding. That’s the second piece.
So the first piece is discover, and the second piece is language. The third piece is buckets. One of the biggest opportunities is to begin with buckets. When someone lands on your website, instead of beginning by communicating in a one-size-fits-all way, begin by asking questions. An example is: “Hi. Thank you so much for visiting my website. What I found out is that, when it comes to helping people, there are no one-size-fits-all solutions, because everyone is unique”. Next, you can say something like this: “If you take a moment to answer a few simple questions, I can put you in touch with the best path and the best resource for you. Simply click the button below and I’ll see you on the other side.”
Now, when you do something like that by asking questions, you are disarming your site visitors. Instead of trying to sell yourself right away, you begin by trying to understand your market. When you do this, instead of having one message that everybody receives, you can ask a few simple questions to customize the emails you send to people. You can also customize your sales video, customize your sales page based on a person’s situations. That means customizing your messaging based on a person’s buckets.
These are three reasons why the ASK Method is so powerful and works so well: Discovery, Language, and Buckets.
