When you sell a high priced product or service the job of gaining your prospect’s trust gets tougher.

White papers, reports, and free information can go a long way towards educating your prospects but nothing works better than a free trial.

Let your customer try your service out. Lower any bar that might be holding your customers back and they will buy.
