127: The Psychology of Closing Sales with Sean D’Souza of Psychotactics
If you’re interesting in learning how to market more effectively and land more sales, a quick Google search will bring up thousands of results, each one promising that their specific tip will be the one that changes your business forever. The trouble is sorting the wheat from the chaff. What’s the stuff that’ll actually work for you, and what’s the stuff that’s just clickbait?
According to Sean D’Souza, the secret to marketing is actually surprisingly easy to understand. At their very core, all marketing strategies follow the exact same model, D’Souza says. He has cracked the code, and he can prove it.
“What I do is I break down things into little pieces, and when I break them down into little pieces it becomes scientific. That’s really what science is. Science is taking something very complex and breaking them down into little pieces and reconstructing it so that anyone can do it,” D’Souza says.
Originally working as a freelance cartoonist, D’Souza somehow found himself indulging his talent for marketing and understanding consumer psychology by helping out others with their marketing efforts. It wasn’t long before he started writing about his own experiences with marketing and slowly but surely, he began to gather an audience hungry to learn more.
