Every opportunity you get to put across your idea to your sponsors, customer or employee should be productive. The best next action should start immediately after your idea reaches them. The best approach to present the idea is to elicit an immediate response.
When someone says, “let me think about it” or “looks like I need more time” or “can we synch up back again, soon” will only lead to more resistance. Make sure that when you share your idea, your goal should not be an acceptance but an immediate response to let you move forward. Your offer must force and compel an immediate move. When call-to-action statements skip the mind of the listener, there’s something seriously wrong with the message. Go build a better one that gets an immediate positive response.
