The Leveraged Business Suggestology: Having prospects think it’s their idea to work with you [VIDEO Training]

[Another “all content” video. Let me know how you like it, OK?]

Sometimes, it’s not so cool to just come out and say “work with me.” People get turned off by it, and that means you don’t sign on as many new paying clients.

There IS a way to plant the seed with people you’re talking to, especially in a seminar, and even in an ‘everyday’ conversation, that has them think it’s THEIR idea to work with you. And it’s so subtle and so simple, you’ll wonder why you didn’t do it before. I describe this “suggestology” technique in this 3-minute video.

Let me know what you think of the concept and how you think you could start using it to sign on new clients in your own business right away. Oh, and I’m open to answering any questions you ask. I’m reviewing all your comments personally, so just ask and I’ll respond here.

OK, let me know what you think. Big hugs.

You've known for some time that a transformation is needed for you to grow your business, income and impact.
Perhaps we should talk?

  1. Great idea, Fabienne.

    I’ll be implementing this straight away… Thank you! I love reading your newsletters by the way!

  2. Love the term “suggestology.” And the technique. Very helpful.

    FYI am I the only person having a problem lately with your videos? They aren’t buffering properly. They will buffer, then play for about 15 seconds, then buffer, then play. Etc. Do your tech guys have any idea what I need to reset to correct this? I have a talent for breaking technology, but unfortunately not for fixing it. Thanks.

  3. Thank you for the great tip. Plus I always love the look of your videos, the lighting and everything always looks so professional.

  4. Thank you Fabienne,
    Very simple tip but very useful. Aren’t all great things in life simple? I love the way you bring it too: short, sharp and entertaining.

  5. I wonder why you have included a “beting drum” sound in the back ground in your videos. Does it serve a particular purpose?

  6. Great video, thank you so much, Fabienne! Good to get a technical term from an expert on something I had already been doing intuitively – not so much in speaking settings, as in regular conversation when networking and even when people plain simple ask me what I do! 🙂 Will put it into action even more!

    Cheers from France 🙂 Maria

  7. Anna –

    Thanks for letting me know you aren’t receiving the CD! We absolutely ship (for free) all over the world, so it must be a tech glitch. Send an email to and give us your full address and email and we’ll make sure you get it.

    Big hugs!

  8. Thanks for your feedback everybody. So glad you’re able to use this. It’s subtle and yet so powerful. AND it creates wonderful results, without struggle.

  9. What excellent reminders you always add, Fabienne. Somehow the inside of my brain knows all this, but it needs reminders to bring it out in the open for action! Thank you!

  10. Another great nugget! Thanks Fabienne! I have a speaking engagement tomorrow morning and will definitely use “suggestology” during my talk.

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  11. One hundred per cent agree Fabienne. It requires you truly believing in what you do and really wanting to help. Providing examples throughout your presentation of how the results your clients have gotten and how helps plant the seed in your audience’s mind. By the way, i’ve subscribed for your free cd twice and never got it 🙁 do you not send them outside the US?

  12. My clients are going to love this approach! It’s subtle and non-threatning, but most of all—I think I can actually DO IT!

  13. Thanks Fabienne – another great post.
    You’re spot on – it makes it so much more natural to ‘seed’ the ideas of what you offer during the talk / phone call etc, rather than having that awkward ‘bash up against the selling-wall’ moment when the listener is turned off because they’re thinking – OK, that info was great, now here’s the pitch. Also, as you’ve shown, if done carefully, it can give social proof too, because it’s demonstrating that other people have successfully enjoyed using your products and services too!
    A great, authentic subtle way to do it 🙂

    warm wishes

  14. I believe you developed this word at your amazing 2010’s MMBW.

    Great timing for me as I complete my new Credit Repair Seminar materials. Suggestology and weaving. It’s like a dance. I’ll always remember it.

    See You Soon!


  15. Great video and content! Thank you Fabienne… I am very proficient at healing addictions and other “conditions” most people don’t want to talk about.This is very helpful~

  16. Great stuff Fabienne and spot on. I will be more conscious of this during my own seminars and public presentations.

  17. HI, Fabienne! I really appreciated the examples you gave here. It makes it so much easier to implement when you see how others handle this scenario.

    Excellent! Thank you very much!

  18. Great reminder, Fabienne. Sharing examples / stories is powerful, and to do so throughout the talk doubles the effect. Thanks for the video!

  19. Great Video,

    I’ve always wondered when was the best time to pop in ‘suggestology’…I will definitely use that this Monday on my radio program!

  20. I love it! So simple yet, you are so right about pple closing the sale only at the end of their presentation. I did just that when I was out making a presentation for my new product, which is a group coaching for new mommies.

    Thanks for this tip!! Love everything you offer!!!
