Special-Sales Tip of the Day: July 31, 2015

Craft precise pitches. You'll intrigue potential customers more if you tell them your book will cost $4.82 per unit rather than "nearly $5.00."  Specificity is what gives people confidence in your message. Even better, use graphics that illustrate the financial impact of your proposal -- whether that is improving sales, saving money or increasing employee happiness. It's a powerful way to stop prospects from merely skimming your marketing materials.

They Said It

“Positive word of mouth is the only real determinant of a movie’s long-term success. That principle applies to the launch of every product and service.”
