IdeaSelling: Successfully Pitch Your Creative Ideas to Bosses, Clients & other Decision Makers

Fred Showker Editor DTG Magazine and the Designer's Bookshelf Don't let your creative ideas get picked apart and put down!

Johnny Sain once said: The world doesn't want to hear about the labor pain ... they just want to see the baby! Believe it. And if you've got ideas to sell, or you have to sell yourself, your concepts or your opinions to someone else, then get this book. Read it twice.

If you're like most creative people, chances are high that you've had your share of ideas rejected by clients or decision makers. While we sometimes make the mistake of believing ideas should sell themselves, the fact is that the better and bolder the idea, the more it needs selling.

This book contains powerful techniques to help you sell your ideas to those with approval power. You'll find tips from designers, writers, marketers and other creative professionals, along with meaty advice from selling and branding gurus. In no time, you'll be able to convince those who hold the purse strings that your ideas are worth pursuing and investing in.

Creating ideas is easy, compared to actually selling them. In this engaging and innovative book, Sam Harrison helps make sure your brilliant ideas actually see the light of day.

Brian Tracy, author of The Psychology of Selling says:

quoting IdeaSelling is the perfect companion to IdeaSpotting, Sam's previous book. end quote

Get this book, and the "Myths of Innovation" book -- learn them. Put these principles into practice. No other graphic designer will ever want to bid against you! They can't ... because the client won't go elsewhere.

quoting No matter how good your idea is or how many problems it solves, it won't get off the ground until someone buys it. Nothing happens until a sale is made! end quote
