First, when it comes to inspiring action, social proof is key. Highlighting the experiences of past customers can create a sense of community and encourage others to join in. Sharing homeowner testimonials about the benefits of solar power can show potential buyers that they’re not alone in their decision, and can also offer tangible examples of how going solar can save them money and protect them from further utility rate hikes. Ultimately, the power of social proof lies in its ability to help people envision a better, more sustainable future. Second, incentivize solar by playing up the principle of scarcity. Homeowners are more apt to act swiftly when resources “seem” limited, so use this to your advantage. Incorporate a sense of urgency by indicating that incentives and rebates for solar may not be available indefinitely.
Doing so will motivate buyers and compel them that the best time to go solar is now.
Third, the power of authority is a key factor in gaining trust and eliciting action from others. It is important to showcase your solar industry expertise and experience, and demonstrate how you have helped past clients achieve success. Sharing industry insights and trends further positions you as a knowledgeable industry authority.
Finally, the principle of reciprocity is a powerful tool to incentivize potential buyers to take action. Offering something valuable, such as a complimentary energy audit or consultation, can create a sense of obligation and encourage them to move forward in the sales process.
These psychological techniques are just a few examples of how to increase your solar sales success. The AJC Group provides sales strategy, business and personal development services, and actionable tactics and strategies to drive the solar industry forward. Contact us today to learn more.
