Mirror their desires
Don’t use guilt or coercion to get someone on board. That’s what amateurs do. Instead, appeal to their self-interest. Explain to them what it has.

We offer strategies on how we can align our services or products with their goals and values, effectively demonstrating the synergy between our companies and the mutual benefits of a partnership.”
Include compelling stories
Storytelling is an ancient method of communicating, memorizing information and building relationships. A great story doesn’t just captivate, it persuades. It can redefine one’s thinking and reprogram one’s mind into a more visionary channel. Start your meeting with an unusual story that gets your prospects in the right frame of mind, ready to hear what you have to say.
“Now that you understand who I’m meeting with and their business aspirations, help me create a compelling story to start our meeting. The story needs to pique their interest and clearly demonstrate the value of working with us. Use the recent story success of our customers, where we are [explain a recent client win and what it meant for them], as a base. Turn this achievement into a casual but impressive narrative that highlights similar benefits they could expect from working with my company. The story must resonate with their goals and leave a lasting, positive impression.”
Show up to your meeting as the most charismatic version of you to impress your candidate. Leave your tiredness, apathy and excuses at the door and put on a winning smile ready to welcome them into your world. By energizing your pitch, make yourself desirable to work with. By maximizing the power of your personality, you make room for someone to give you a chance.
“I think about aspects of meetings or presentations that make me feel uncomfortable or less confident, such as [specific issues or concerns].

These will help to overcome my difficulties and enhance my communication skills. Additionally, provide advice on maintaining a positive, engaging demeanor throughout the meeting, ensuring I come across as energetic, approachable and confident – someone very desirable to work with.’
Adapt to their body language
Being attuned to your prospect’s body language is crucial to a distinctive pitch. It is much more than their words. It is the subtle changes, the specific reactions and what is left unsaid that speaks volumes. Understand and adapt to your prospect’s non-verbal cues to create a connection beyond the business. Make your meeting an unforgettable experience by empathizing and reading the room effectively. Use ChatGPT to hone this skill, ensuring that your voice resonates deeply and leaves a lasting impression, making a callback all the more likely.
