1) Enter their world.

You must understand the situation according to their point ofview. Set aside your personal interests and concentrate on them.

Just pretend that if you are them, what would you do? What wouldbe your opinion? Then take the appropriate action that would bebeneficial to them.

Copy them. Observe how they act, how they speak, and how theythink. If they rub their forehead while they think, act likethem. If they speak at a clear and slow pace, try to do the samething. This is called mirroring.

In due time, the people you're mirroring will subconsciouslyfeel more comfortable with you. It's as if they see themselvesin you.

However, you must proceed with caution. Do not let them be awarethat you are copying them. They might interpret it as mockeryand you'll just get into trouble.

2) Be Friendly and Nice.

Smile to brighten up the day. Make a sincere compliment to raisetheir spirits. Little things like these count a lot.

Make them feel that whenever they need help or just someone tolook up to, you'll always be there to lend a hand. They wouldtend to be more receptive to people that they trust.

If you want to ask your boss a favor, do everything you can toplease him. Overdeliver and exceed his expectations. Soon, hewill notice your efforts and will be more than glad to grantyour request.

3) Provide them with compelling evidence.

Explain to them how your ideas or suggestions could be the mosteffective techniques to implement. Show them undeniable proofthat you have the best product by way of testimonials, beforeand after scenarios, and detailed comparisons against yourcompetitors. Just make sure that all your claims are true andverifiable. Always maintain a good reputation.

4) Meet their existing needs and desires.

People are self-centered. They are initially concerned withtheir own well-being before others. If you can prove that yourproposal will provide more advantageous benefits to them than toyour own, then they will probably accept it.

If you could focus more on their interests, desires, needs, andexpectations, then you would satisfy their cravings forattention. Moreover, it would show that you really care aboutthem. Mutual trust and respect would be established.

This is the most important thing to remember when persuadinganyone.
