A pain is any problem your customer has in her daily life, which might include anything from a high energy bill to an uptick of crime in the neighborhood.
Start by using a few open-ended questions to gently ask about the pain – “How much do you currently pay for your energy bill? When you get surprised by a high energy bill, what type of impact does that have on your finances?”

On your next sales pitch, don’t forget this simple sales tip. Gently ask your customer/ prospect about his/her pains. Then explain how your offer could solve them.
