A Magic Phrase in Internet Marketing Promotion

Pin It

In his book, How to Win Friends and Influence People, Dale Carnegie offers us a “magic phrase that would stop arguments, eliminate ill feeling, create goodwill and make the other person listen attentively”. Sounds too good to be true? Could such a phrase really exist, and if it did, could you imagine how helpful it would be for your home business online opportunity. The phrase is “I don’t blame you one iota for feeling as you do. If I were you I would undoubtedly feel just as you do”. This one phrase immediately shows that you are looking at it from their point of view. It stops them in their tracks straight away as they no longer have a reason to continue arguing. You have created an area of agreement and most people will follow the direction of agreement. When you encounter a miserable, argumentative person, remember they are a product of the environment they have lived in since they were born. They may not have been as lucky as you to have been born in to a family and community that valued and supported them. Remember then not to argue but put yourself in their shoes and show sympathy for them.

Most people we meet are looking for sympathy. Give it to them and you are well on your way to winning them over. If you are presenting someone with something you know may not be agreeable, start off by letting them see that you have taken account of their viewpoint. For example, if you know that the person considers him/herself to have a very busy schedule, start off by mentioning that. Apologise for the fact that this may take up some of their time. Then let them know how time spent now will actually save them time in the future. You have shown them that you have bothered to listen to their issues on time and that you have come up with a solution to their issue. If something does not solve some issue that the other person has, there is no point in trying to convince them they should have it.
