I agreed - not to keep the peace, but because I firmly believe that every spoken or written dialogue is a series of sales pitches.
Think about it
When you relate something - anything - to someone - anyone - you do so because you want them to believe it.
- "They just called our number; come on, let's go!".
- "I'm not eating there; they have lousy service".
- "Hi! My name is Chris, can we talk?".
Practically every sentence that leaves your mouth is a sales pitch.
Practically every paragraph I write is a sales pitch. This one certainly is.
If you spoke to anyone today, even if it's just to tell the cat "You have plenty of dry food", you've made a sales pitch.
If the cat believes you, you've made a sale.
Don't be afraid
You're really very good at sales.
