How many of these objections have you heard from your customers? 

“That’s more expensive than I thought it would be…”
“I thought I could get on your calendar sooner than that…”
“I’ve heard of (competitor’s name), but I’ve never heard of you before…”
“That sounds complicated…”

“Maybe I’ll just do it myself…”

Part of being an empathetic guide is taking these objections seriously, not getting defensive, and walking your customer through this part of the decision process.
