Go on a MISSION

Designing creative looking slides and droning on and on about your product seems so passé. Instead, talking about a problem and then offering a solution in the form of your product or service is what will work.

If truth be told, gone are the days when people looked for ways to prevent certain problems. In the modern world, when time seems to be a luxury, solutions are what everyone is looking for. So, if you have a cure for a problem, ranting about it is all that you need to get your customers interested.

PREVENTION and Virtue Don’t Sell

Putting your point across using inconspicuously virtuous gestures and goodness is a thing of the past. In today’s world, it’s only hardcore facts that sell. When making a sales pitch, what you need is facts. You need to inform the audience about how far reached the problem is and what your product or service can do to ease and resolve it completely.

Possible prevention is not what the end-users are interested in. The truth is that when you come up with preventive measures, it is only the people who have faced the problems who would relate to it. The rest might not even understand what you are talking about in the first place. However, a possible cure will definitely have more takers.

Rant about the CURE

Goodness and virtue are definitely important in this world. However, they just don’t to seem to have much value in the big bad corporate world. In this world, where profit is all that counts, customers and business owners are looking for products that could cure any inherent problems. Probable prevention though desirable at times might not be something that everyone would want.

Ranting about your business idea that sells a permanent solution rather than a temporary one is what would get more customers interested in your sales pitch. So, go ahead and rant away!!
