Shared Answers - How Do You Get Them To Believe Your ROI Projections?



Have you ever come up with a great idea and pitched it to customers and/or investors, only to have your financial justification picked apart like a carcass on the savanna?

Me, too!

And worse yet, if I was pitching to a group of people, they would each attack different assumptions or, worse, they would propose conflicting values for the same variable!

And sometimes, what I was proposing was unprecedented, and no one could really say what the right numbers were.

This problem vexed me for years, until I came up with the perfect solution! Want to know what it is?

Sorry, the rules of the contest say I have to answer the question in a different post. Check back later for the answer.

Hi Mike
Great entry! Thanks for joining in our Shared Answers Group Writing Project. I know a lot of people are still mulling over their entries, but I think you were the first to post.

You have me intrigued now. Pitching is indeed an art, and I look forward to reading your solution.

Hi Yvonne,

The answer is in the can, but I'm waiting a little while to let suspense build!
