The persuasion hall of lame
Hello, darling readers, listeners, lurkers, serial killers, whoever you are. Today, I am talking about the persuasion hall of lame.
Eleven easy ways, super easy ways to discredit yourself, diminish your goodwill, and destroy the sale in one fell swoop. It is super easy, and if you do anything on the internet, trust me, you are literally dancing at the edge of the hall of lame every single day.
How do I know that? Because I have been there. More than half of the things that I’m going to talk about are the ones that I have done myself. Yeah, me. I have lost the sale, and I have learned the lesson.
The reason I’m sharing these with you, because I don’t want you to do the same or make the same mistakes, which let me just go out and say this, you’re still going to do it anyway, because we all make our own mistakes.
Ok here they are
- Asking for the sale too soon
- Asking for the sale too late
- Appearing too big and perfect
- Appearing too flawed
- Giving them too much detail in order to get the sale
- Too little detail
- Giving them too many choices
- Not getting enough choices
- Making it too easy
- Making it too hard
- Wrong social proof
