Meir Ezra on the Blueprint of Selling

21 Sep



You have an excellent product or service.

You believe in your business and you love to help people.

Prospects reach out to you.

And you even have good sales meetings.


But… a second before the prospect signs on the dotted line or takes out his credit card…

Something happens…..

Instead of closing the deal you get excuses, worries and “reasons” why not.


Did someone ever say to you…

“Let me sleep on it tonight….”

(Clue: Even after 3 months he still did not wake up…)

“Please, don’t pressure me!”

(Clue: Even if you will not say a word your prospect will still say that sentence)

“I’ll talk to my wife and get back with you.”

(Clue: The guy is not married… or he is married but never talks to his wife about his purchases).

“I think it’s too expensive.”

(Clue: The price did not stop him to purchase the new iPhone for $600 and the new iWatch for $500 and… – is that purchasing justice?)

“I want to check a few places before I decide.”

(Clue: He decided – He is buying, but not from you.)

“I never decide on the spot.” 

– When you’ve just used your strongest sales argument

(Clue: What can you say when there is nothing to say?)


If you’ve ever heard one or more of these sentences

And did not close the deal,

You can’t afford to miss…






Let me teach you the EXACT blueprint to

defeat ALL objections in the sales process!


You may have been told that you have to be born as a sales person.

That it has to do with luck.

That it depends on the market.

That if you’ll practice for months… than maybe… you might be successful.

You may have heard that you either are a closer or you are not…

That selling may not be for you…


And many other stories that do not solve the problem

and cause you to end up with no money!


You may have decided that you’re simply not good in sales.

That you’re not a sales person.

And you decided to get someone to sell for you…

But that person ran into the same objections as you did.

Long ago, I also thought that you had to be lucky.

That you needed some kind of special X quality to be successful

in sales…. until….


I cracked the code and discovered the Blueprint of Selling. 


The truth is way too simple –

EVERYONE can sell!

EVERYONE can handle any sales objection

and close the deal.




More Things to Think About…


Do you invest a lot of time in prospects,

but you don’t close the deal?

The prospect stays in doubt…

“To buy or not to buy”  

(feeling like Shakespeare.. 😉

and eventually disappears.


What does it say about you? 

* It does NOT say that you are not a good sales person – I am sure.

* It says you actually progressed well in the sales process.

* It unquestionably says that you are missing the TOOLS that

enable you to easily defeat any objection during the sales process.


After long and thorough research, it was found that there are

only three types of objections a sales person encounters

during the sales process.

The good news is – Each type of objection has an exact handling.

The bad news is – Most sales people don’t know the correct handling.


I’m VERY HAPPY to present the solution to your problem:

The Blueprint of Selling Seminar

– How to Defeat ALL Sales Objections


What you will learn at the Blueprint to Selling seminar:

The three types of objections that cause 95% of all failures to close.

How to spot the type of objections you are dealing with.

The exact steps to overcome those barriers.

What to do with all the extra money you will suddenly earn (my recommendation – register for my academy 😉

And MUCH more…


You have NOTHING to lose and MILLIONS to earn…

Don’t Wait. Sign Up NOW!


By the way – if you feel you cannot afford to attend,

you cannot afford NOT to be there!


After training thousands of executives and owners of companies and debugging hundreds of businesses I will tell you the raw truth:





Yes, I do have an amazing record in sales that will cause the biggest masters to come a learn from me. I can tell you about all the amazing things about my business, the great things I have done for my clients, and a lot of blablabla…

BUT I know that this means nothing to YOU. You want to know…






If you know how to read a blueprint,

You will be able to build the building.

If you know how to read the blueprint of sales,

You will be able to close and build your bank account.

It is a proven system! I have trained many of my high-profile

friends and the results are always crazy!

The system is based on the part of the person that is not rational and not aware – the unconscious.

And hence if you try to understand what you are doing wrong, you will not be able to understand – it makes no sense as there is no sensible reason….

The reason is not rational.. Yet it always determines the decision making process! I’m going to teach the full system at…


Are You Ready to Get the Income You Deserve?


You Have Nothing to Lose and Millions to Earn


I will tell you a secret… Many people have an unexplained fear to make decisions. They made a decision in the past and failed. Because they don’t want to make a wrong decision again, they simply do not decide.

This is the source of the first type of objections…

In five sentences you will be able to identify that fear and totally handle it.


You will learn this and MUCH, MUCH MORE at my Blueprint of Selling Seminar!

This seminar is not like any other sales seminar you’ve ever attended before. I have shared this blueprint only with a handful of close friends…..

And their results have been AMAZING!

Take action now! Because remember…
