The 3 P’s of Business Persuasion








In business sales and persuasion there were 3 P’s that are critical.

The power of your words, passion, and persistence. Let’s explore with these might mean…

The Power of Your Words–The power of your words is everything. When you speak something from an authentic and real place-it contains real power. People will think about what you said long after the words of actually been spoken. My friend Ron Pileggi taught me this early on my sales career– that people really resonate with words spoken in power from and genuine place a passion.

Passion—Do you have passion in your communication? When you really believe what you’re saying and feel strongly about it– people will pick up on it. People will understand and resonate and believe what you say. When you’re passionate it comes through. Enthusiasm plus passion with the power of your words equals a very strong force in life and business relationships.

Persistence– When you are persistent in a relationship with somebody it is often compelling. You become an unstoppable force of their life and they become engendered to you because you have built a relationship. When your persistence, passion, and power of your words include something for them and not just something for you –it builds trust and relationship all at once. They will begin to know you, trust you, like you and maybe even buy (from) you!

Therefore, when these 3 P’s are combined– the power of your words, passion, and persistence given from a place of genuine authenticity–people will resonate with you and it will make it easy for them like and trust you and then buy you or your products. People resonate with those that they can trust who are passionate and use powerful persistence and understand the power of their words.

Good luck and go passionately sell something today!

Much is been said about networking in the last two years and for good reason. It is the core of one’s business promotion, marketing, and acumen. If you do it right, you will succeed in business. Here are seven areas that you can improve your networking and take it to the next level–
#1. Be There – show up, be present, get in the car drive there and be at your event and early if possible. 95% of life is showing up!
#2. Watch Your Appearance. Appearances can be deceiving and consumers draw a lot of conclusions about the quality of your service and personality based and what they see in your dress, body language, written materials and verbal skills. Appearances ultimately account for how you’re ultimately judged.
#3. Be Empathetic. To the extent that you treat someone as special and solve his or her unique problems, they will continue to be your customer. Treat people like VIPs. Zig Ziglar said if you help enough people get what they want they will help you get what you want.
#4. Be Reliable. Reliability means many things but especially being a person of your word. Do what you say and say what you will do and guarantee it. Establish credibility as being a faithful person.
#5. Ask Good Questions. Then shut up. The mark of a good conversationalist is not to talk a lot, but that you get others to talk to you. Ask good questions and you’ll be remembered as an interesting person.
#6. Follow-up. Give away lots of business cards but also follow up on all those that you receive. Make sure you call or email people and get back with them and are on their radar. Be known as the person who is the quintessential follow-up person.
#7. Make it Easy to Contact You. Make sure that people have your business card and can find you easily in the phone book or via social media or networking. Be the one who is easy to find.
Bonus Habit– Develop Trust and Likability – if they know you, like you, and trust you they will do business with you. How can they ever do these if they never have met your network?

Be present and be out there and you’ll develop an awesome network and succeed in business and life. See you out there!
