Episode #143: Urgency in Sales with Amy O’Connor

In This Episode of The Buyer’s Mind with Jeff Shore:

Amy O’Connor talks with Jeff about the importance of urgency in sales.  Personal urgency which is when there is something missing in your life that you need. Then there is circumstantial urgency, what you miss out on if you don’t purchase today.  Circumstantial urgency is only powerful once you establish personal urgency in the sale.
