If you are a Persuader (who isn't), this book can teach you techniques of persuasion that will allow you to navigate the persuasion, and make your offers (or get them to do what you want) while minimizing -- even com,pletely eliminating resistance from their heads! The goal of this book is to introduce a special way of looking and treating the persuasion process, so that resistances are targetted and neutralized, while giving you unprecedented leverage in how to control people much more smoothly and consistently. You can collect all the trial closes and fancy shmancy persuasion techniques in the world -- but if you lack the innergame or how to see the whole picture? You wont successfully persuade and get the Compliance (acceptance of offer, target makes the desired action etc.)! If you can master resistance? You can master persuasion! And No persuader can succeed without mastering neutralization of resistance. For my readers interested in subjects on how to be a Spy, or on how to be a Con artist? Well this book does not cover those subjects directly, HOWEVER to learn how to spy for example requires the skillsets of getting compliance and simple resistance management -- which are indeed covered in this book. ============== Table of Contents ============== Table of Contents I - Nature of the Offer Targets TRUE need for the offer The Size of the Compliance People don't like to be sold to Pull back tactics Safety/Dangers/Integrity II External Factors Influencing Resistance or Acceptance Time Based on you or offers past performance Presentation of yourself and offer Future Projections Speed Decision making Values/Social Conditionings/Family/Corporate Values etc… Buyers’ Remorse Targets personal criteria and metaprograms Target's stock knowledge and experience about the offer at hand Positive or Negative effects the perception of the offer directly Relationship Dynamics/Frame Prospect in relation to the item Persuader’s relationship with the offer 3rd Party Opinions Social Proof positive or negative Advisers and Invisible decision makers III Compliance or Resistance Logical resistance They don't like you personally They decided on another offer Emotional or State based/BT Baby steps leading, to sneak past resistance
