Five Proven Strategies To Win Clients and Grow Your Business

Leverage the principles of persuasive psychology, negotiations, sales, marketing and linguistics at your next meeting.

Ever wonder why you lost that new business pitch?
If you are relying on your salesmanship to turn prospects into clients, you may unknowingly be sabotaging your own success. Scientific research on persuasive psychology strategies indicates that some of the most common approaches used in business are actually counterproductive to building trusting relationships and gaining approvals for your proposals.

Melinda Marcus developed the inPSYCHSTM program based on a survey of published psychology studies and best practices from the fields of negotiations, linguistics, sales and marketing. Her training and consulting engagements have enabled her clients to close multimillion-dollar deals in weeks instead of months. Find out how you can leverage proven persuasive strategies to:

  • Build trust with prospects more quickly

  • Avoid shooting yourself in the foot when pursuing new business

  • Predispose business contacts to want to
    help you

  • Add more value to what your clients are willing to pay for your services
