  30. 30. This 4 Step Formula earned a company $18,400 in their first presentation! Obviously they were looking forward to doing more ….
  31. 31. Persuasive Presentation Planning 1. CreateLiking&Relevance 2. ElaborateTheCustomer’sHeartache 3. DefineTheBenefits 4. RevealTheSolution
  32. 32. Create Liking & Relevance • People will listen to those that they like and those who like them. • Give a genuine compliment • Explain why what you have to say will impact them personally or professionally.
  33. 33. Using compliments to create Liking • “Thank you for coming on time! You are very punctual Troopers! (Genuine) • It’s mypleasure tospeak toyou today” (You like them, they’ll like you)
  34. 34. Relevance establishes the “WIIFM” “Today’s Death Star presentation will help you understand how you can better control planets in your sector without any messy troop deployments or need to blow up farms.”
  35. 35. Speak of upto 3 problems & their specific consequences. “As Stormtroopers, we have 3 big problems yet noone cares! 1. We can’t see in these helmets and get injured when Rebels attack us! 2. White armour? Rebels see usfroma mile away and easily evade us. We spend extra hours looking for them! 3. Noshields inour Tie Fighters? We get blown up inone shot!
  36. 36. Elaborate the Customer’s Heartache • If there is no pain, people ARE NOT motivated to listen to your solutions. • Establish the problem that you want to solve by talking about it. • Always assume that your customers don’t fully understand what’s missing in their lives.
  37. 37. Define the Benefits • When people understand how solving the problems would directly benefit them. They would be more keen to accept a solution. • However. Most people are skeptical if a Hutt tells them how good his stuff is.
  38. 38. To use a 3rd party approach to explain. • “Whatiftherewasawhywecouldsee better? Itwouldmeanwecandefend ourselves andevendefeatthose pesky Rebels! • “Whatifwecouldcamouflageourarmor?It wouldmeanthattheRebelswouldn’tspot useasilyandwecangetthem! • “Imagineifwehad shields,therewillbemore pilotsatthepoker table forustofleece!”
  39. 39. After Step 3, your customers are already in love with you. And they are already convinced of what you have! Ihaveyounow!
  40. 40. Only after you established value, can you reveal what you have in Step 4. Otherwise it’s like telling the punch line of the joke at the beginning.
  41. 41. 15% of time to establish Liking & Relevance 35% of time to establish the Problem 30% of time to establish the Benefit 20% about the Solution
