But I WANT to Buy! Why aren’t you selling?
You all know this intuitively already, right? If you don’t present it, no one can buy it! This is true whether you’re selling products and services or just selling an idea for a good deed. You have to present it. It never ceases to amaze me how so many people are so afraid of presenting. Come on, aren’t you actually giving someone a present? Wouldn’t any rational human being be pleased, maybe very pleased? Why would you be afraid of giving away a present, even if you receive equivalent value for your present financially or by direct barter? If you produce pedal-powered flying conveyances that remain in the air and don’t come crashing to the ground even if the pilot, or rider, stops pedalling, and it costs you $90 to produce one, would your customers even blink if you sold one for $1,000? I don’t think so. In fact, you might even be hard put producing more and more because I think the demand would outstrip whatever you can supply i very short order. Of course, I am assuming that government regulations and people in the auto manufacturing and energy industries don’t howl and throw up legislation to stop you or send in hit squads to erase you and your operation. Assuming that you are able to produce and sell, wouldn’t you present the fantastic benefits of your pedal-powered flying conveyance to everyone you see? For not only would they be getting a great means of transportation, they would also be helping reduce pollution, traffic congestion, etc.
It seems to me that one of the biggest reasons why people are so fearful of presenting is that they have very low self-esteem, and one of the major contributors to that low self-esteem is that they have little confidence in the great value of their products and services. Address those, and your next presentation would, quite literally, take off!
