    Our word of the day is “CommodityCommodities are the raw materials humans use to create a livable world. Humans use energy to sustain themselves, metals to build weapons and tools, and agricultural products to feed themselves. These — energy, metals, and agricultural products — are the three classes of commodities, and they are the essential building blocks of the global economy.

    A commodity is a raw product. Examples of commodities include grains, like corn, wheat and soybeans; livestock like cattle and hogs; metals like gold and silver, and energy sources like crude oil and natural gas. This raw product is typically sold, and then processed and/or packaged in some way to ultimately be sold by a retailer to a consumer. To make it easier to buy and sell these raw goods, the quality of the commodity must be uniform from all producers. So all the bushels of corn, all the bales of cotton, and all the barrels of crude oil are essentially the same, regardless of who produced them.

These are traded all over the globe - everything from oil to copper, sugar to precious minerals. A country normally associated with great lakes, political neutrality and the Red Cross can now be associated with the global commodities industry as Switzerland is home to some of the biggest commodities companies in the world.

When they are traded on an exchange, commodities must also meet specified minimum standards, also known as a basis grade. The commodity has to be tradable, meaning there needs to be a viable investment vehicle to help you trade it. For example, a commodity is included if it has a futures contract assigned to it on one of the major exchanges, or if a company processes it, or if there’s an ETF that tracks it. All the commodities have to be physically deliverable. Crude oil is included because it can be delivered in barrels, and wheat is included because it can be delivered by the bushel. Every commodity has an active market with buyers and sellers constantly transacting with each other. Liquidity is critical because it gives you the option of getting in and out of an investment without having to face the difficulty of trying to find a buyer or seller for your securities.

He had this idea which was as opposed to selling a newspaper for six cents which was the normal way of doing it, he would sell his newspaper for a penny and try and attract an enormous audience and resell that audience to advertisers. So the newspapers at the time, the six penny papers, they’re a little bit boring. They covered politics and finance. They didn’t have crime stories, that kind of thing. And he introduced a sort of a far more interesting newspaper. The very first issue was all about the suicide of a man who had been separated from his lover. It had stories of death, mayhem, destruction, gossip and was sold at such a low price that he managed to attract these enormous audiences which then were resold to advertisers. Now the thing about that penny price is it was a money losing proposition unless you sold enough and unless you reach enough advertisers to make it worth it. So he pioneered this unusual business model which today is found in as many places as Google, Facebook, Instagram, you know, it’s sort of taken over our lives.

Learn three tips to sell a product that seems like a commodity to prospects. For more videos just like this, please head on over to http://www.marcwayshak.com/opt1 Do you sell a product or service as though it’s a commodity? Let’s actually define what a commodity is. Wikipedia defines a commodity as a class of goods for which there’s demand, but which is supplied without quality in differentiation across a market. In other words, no distinction, but people want it. In a product/service without differentiation or distinction from other options, you’ll see that the buying decision comes down to only one factor. And what is that factor? Of course, you’re probably thinking “price.” In this video I’m going to share with you how to sell a product that seems like a commodity, but you’ll be able to create so much more value. Check it out! #1. Stop selling a commodity. I don’t mean stop selling what you actually sell, but I’m saying you should stop focusing on price as the primary determinant for why someone should buy from you. Instead, identify why your current clients are actually buying from you right now (other than for price). Reflect upon all of that value that you create in the lives of your prospects or in your existing customers, and start to focus on that as opposed to the commodity value (price) of what you’re selling. #2. Focus only on the value that you actually bring. Again, this is not about selling the specific commoditized product or service. Instead, it’s about what is the real value that you bring to the table. Give up on the idea that you can be the lowest-price provider unless, of course, you’re Walmart. After all, you won’t effectively make money as the lowest-price provider. It’s time to focus on the value that you can really deliver. What are some of those intangibles that attract your customer to you? #3. Solve your prospects’ challenges. Your prospects don’t buy from you because you have the lowest price—at least hopefully they don’t buy from you simply because you offer the lowest price. They typically are buying because you solved some particular set of challenges for them. What are your prospects most challenged by? Ask them to find out. Have conversations set up with those prospects as well as customers to learn what their biggest challenges are. And then all you have to do is craft a solution to solve those problems. So that’s three superb ways to sell a commodity or a product/service that seems like a commodity. Which of these three ideas did you find most useful? I want to hear from you, so be sure to share below in the comment section, and I will respond to every single comment. For more videos on how to sell your product or service, be sure to search YouTube for: “how to close the sale” “close more sales” “closing techniques” “best sales strategies” “best sales techniques” “closing the sale” “how to sell” “how to avoid selling on price” “sale techniques” “sales strategies” “sales strategy” “sales techniques” “sales techniques training” “sales training techniques” “strategies to increase sales”

This raw product is typically sold, and then processed and/or packaged in some way to ultimately be sold by a retailer to a consumer.

This week on Counting the Cost we examine the commodities industry - the very essentials, the raw materials and resources that we simply cannot live without. These are traded all over the globe - everything from oil to copper, sugar to precious minerals. A country normally associated with great lakes, political neutrality and the Red Cross can now be associated with the global commodities industry as Switzerland is home to some of the biggest commodities companies in the world. But why has that one region out surpassed the others in the commodities business? And is it possible to regulate the globalised, multi-billion dollar companies which operate within it? At Al Jazeera English, we focus on people and events that affect people's lives. We bring topics to light that often go under-reported, listening to all sides of the story and giving a 'voice to the voiceless.' Reaching more than 270 million households in over 140 countries across the globe, our viewers trust Al Jazeera English to keep them informed, inspired, and entertained. Our impartial, fact-based reporting wins worldwide praise and respect. It is our unique brand of journalism that the world has come to rely on.
