6 Mind Hacks To Persuade Anyone For Anything in Just 10 Seconds

This is the way to bond and connect with another person’s needs instead of just your own pathetic wants.

You can use this in an elevator pitch, on a date, with your children, on your mother, whatever. But it works.

The most efficient techniques are mentioned below (think about these things when talking) :

1.Urgency:  Why the problem you solve is urgent to your demographic. For example: “I can never get a cab when it rains!”                                                                                                            

2.Unique Why is your solution unique: “We aggregate 100s of car services into one simple app. Nobody else does this.”                                                                                                      

3.Useful: Why is your solution useful to the lives of the people you plan on selling to or deliver your message to: “We get you there on time.”                                                                                   

4.Ultra-Specific: This shows there is no fluff: “Our app knows where you are. Your credit card is pre-loaded. You hit a button and a car shows up in 4-5 minutes.”

Of course the example given is for Uber but you can throw in any other example you want.

5.User-friendly:In other words, make it as easy as possible for someone to say “yes”. Like a money back guarantee, for instance. Or a giveaway. Or higher equity. Or testimonials from people you both know.

5.Unquestionable Proof: This can be in the form of profits. Or some measurable statistic. Or testimonials. Or a good wing-man. Whatever it takes.

 

E) DESIRE

A lot of people say you have to satisfy the desires of the other person in order for them to say “yes”.

As much as we would like to think otherwise, people primarily act out of self-interest.

The less they know you, the more they will act of self-interest because to do otherwise could potentially put them in danger. We all know that kids shouldn’t take candy from strangers.

In an elevator pitch, the investor is the kid, what you are asking is the candy, and you are the stranger. So their gut reflex, unless you make the candy super-sweet, is to say “no”.

So make sure you make your candy sweeter by sprinkling in their desires.

And what are their desires?

  • recognition
  • rejuvenation
  • relaxation
  • relief
  • religion
  • remuneration
  • results
  • revenge
  • romance

If you can help them solve these URGENT problems or desires, then you they are more likely to say “yes” to you.

I don’t know what you are selling, but hopefully it’s not to satisfy their desire for revenge. But if it is, don’t do anything violent.
