Magic Persuasive Words: Part 3

Please don’t be annoyed with me this week. Thank you in advance!

Following on from our magic persuasive words from the previous two posts, we have the all time favourites:

PLEASE!
THANK YOU!

When someone says please, you know they are asking for a favour. Don’t you?

Do you feel coerced?

Manipulated?

Upset that they are using words to cajole their way into getting something?

Of course not!

In fact, some of us might think they are just rather well mannered.

The good ‘ole please and thank you are brilliantly persuasive. We are trained from childhood to respond to them in a positive way.

Please could you help me. I’m looking for the person who makes the decisions on product purchases? 
Thank you for your patience. Your time. Your business.


We know these words are used expressly to get what you want, however it doesn’t negate how powerful they are.

Oh, and while we are on the subject, please read on (ha, are you doing it?) –

Have you ever thought I need to save up favours and just ask for one big one. Or I can’t ask for anything along the way, because pretty soon I’m going to be asking for the order, and I don’t want to use up my opportunities?

Know what I mean?

Well, here is something that might surprise you.

You are more likely to have a higher success if you do a few trial requests before you get to the big one. You are more likely to get a ‘yes’ if you have already received some small ‘yesses’ along the way.

So don’t save up, use your best manners, and ask for agreement and when the time is right, the order.

I love your opinions, whether you agree or disagree. Don’t be shy. Please post it in the comments below. Thank you in advance.
