  1. Hi, Jamie –

    You’re so right – car salesman for sure – and the example I love to use is a Papa Murphy’s radio commercial. They nailed it!

    Most people know the “what” as you pointed out. Farmers interested in turning their sales upward will totally appreciate the “how” – it’s fun to see it in action.

  2. Jamie Coffman says:

    It’s called “Feature Benefit Selling” and it’s been a mainstay of professional salesmanship for many decades. People buy what the product does for them, not its specifications. Just listen to a car salesman sometime. Nothing new here, just its application, but congratulations on rediscovering it.
