How to measure the success of onboarding
Don’t start by talking about anything to do with you or your business.
Instead, name the undeniable shift in the world that creates both (a) a huge opportunity and (b) an incredible sense of urgency for your prospect.
Now you’ve instantly got them intrigued.
Now it’s time to demonstrate how the change you’ve mentioned from Step #1 will create winners and losers.
To do this, you have to show that:
Make it clear that winners adopt the services your business provides.
Keep resisting the urge to start talking about the details of your service.
Instead, present a high-level vision of the successful end state that your service will help the prospect achieve - e.g. ‘The Promised Land’.
The Promised Land should be highly desirable and also incredibly difficult for the prospect to achieve without outside help - your help.
Now, it’s finally time to introduce your product or service.
When you introduce your product or service, position its capabilities as a set of “magic gifts” that will help your prospect reach The Promised Land.
Make it clear that it will be very difficult - maybe even impossible - to reach The Promised Land without these “magic gifts” (your product or service).
Now it’s time to hit them with your best customer success story / case study / client testimonial.
The customer success story should highlight the many obstacles you helped them to overcome, and the stormy waters you helped them to navigate to successfully reach The Promised Land.
Keep it short and punchy.
Of course, successful sales rarely happen solely as the result of a great deck.
To stand an even greater chance of success, try and get the entire company aligned to, engaged with, and supportive of your new sales narrative.
Congratulations - you have just achieved sales nirvana.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
