Showing off the advantages and benefits

Like any product, selling solar panels is all about focusing on the advantages and benefits to the consumer. “What’s in it for me?” That’s probably always the number one question that needs to be answered by any good marketer.

To the average consumer or homeowner, the main advantages are savings over time. However, buying and installing solar panels on the roof costs money. Still, solar is an investment that pays for itself, given that the right conditions are in place.

This is not just some marketing fluff. Homeowners can and will recoup their initial investment. Initially, the most important thing is relaying this information using facts and making the point clearly to customers. Firstly, always have the figures in hand. Secondly, have all the facts about available discounts and rebates. Thirdly, explain how long will it take to break even on the costs. For example, how much will a household save on electricity each month if they get x or y system? Having such numbers handy will definitely help sell the product.

The advantages of sustainability and environmental benefits

While most consumers will likely be more thinking of the financial impact of solar, the environment-friendly factor is also vital. A considerable number of people will also consider installing solar panels to meet their sustainability goals.

Key here is to introduce them to other like-minded individuals, who can apprise them of the advantages. For example, by highlighting the green aspect of solar power for homes. Amongst these, are environment friendly materials and manufacturing processes. Furthermore, more specific information equates to a better chance of getting sustainability keen buyers to sign on the dotted line.

The advantages of seeding

One newer way solar companies encourage household installations is through a method known as ‘seeding’. It is clear that homeowners are more likely to install a system after noticing the proliferation of panels in surrounding areas. That’s especially so in the context of their community and the immediate neighborhood vicinity. It gets even better once people have more information about how much their neighbors save on their electric bills.

To achieve this, companies will often install panels on a few households at a big discount to advertise their advantages. The buzz of neighborly conversation is in itself a great sales promoter. As a result, people get to hear of the benefits of the panels and the message spreads! Even the visual is enough to entice nearby neighbors to consider installing panels onto their own rooftops.

So, here’s how you can play a role

Importantly, the move away from traditional fossil fuel energy as supplied by the commercial grid is an important first step. Furthermore, you can play a role by joining the move to cleaner, renewable energy. Firstly, the advantages of greening the environment are clear. Secondly, because there’s a huge market waiting for solar panels, each additional user plays a role.

The solar energy industry is growing by the minute, and the focus on sustainability everywhere will only help. Still, it’s important to promote reliable methods of marketing and selling solar panels. Moreover, this is a great way to ensure that installations keep going up.
