“I Want to Think About it” Objection

I want to think about it

Here are some ideas for those times when you hear, “Thanks for the information, I want to think it over and I’ll get back to you.”:

Objection: “I want to think it over”

Option 1:

“I understand. Just out of curiosity:

  • “Do you understand that the benefits are exactly the same, just a better cost now, right?”
    • “And do you understand what we mean when we say, nothing changes in your doctor, hospital, and options here, don’t you?”
    • “Then while we’re on the phone together, what other questions do you have?

[If None]

“Then just to clarify my thinking, what part of this do you need to think over?

Option 2:

“Are you going to be thinking over the better Medicare Supplement costs we spoke about today, or about whether or not this solution is the right fit for you?

Option 3:

“I know I’ve given you a lot to think about today, do you mind me asking what part of this you’d like to think over?”

Option 4:

“I understand, and I’m sure you’ve got other options to consider…do you mind if I ask how we’re stacking up to what you’re also looking at?”

Option 5:

“__________, it sounds like you’re probably considering other options as well – do you mind if I ask who else you’re looking into?”

Layer:

“And how do we stack up compared to them?”

Option 6:

“__________, besides yourself, who else would be weighing in on this?”

Option 7:

“I totally understand; many people I speak with want to consider all their options before making a decision. Tell me, who else is in the running for this?”

Option 8:

“That’s no problem. Level with me, if you would, what would be holding you back from saying yes right now?”

Layer:

“And is this even a realistic option for you?”

Option 9:

“And as you think about it right now, what would be the major reason for not moving forward with it?”

Option 10:

“I understand – not everyone I speak with is ready to move forward with it right away. Quick question:

“What would you need to see here for you to say yes to the savings/best plan you qualify for?”

Thanks for inspiration from Mike Brooks on these!
