How persuasion can build trust and aspects of trust that help a connection grow quickly…
The First Summons: Trust that Emerges from No Thing
When someone persuades you, you are in a sense gambling on their suggestion or view point. To some significant degree you are TRUSTING THEM.
Similarly in each persuasive communication the person who is asking for the trust is either becoming a less consistent and less valuable human or they are in training for dependability and trustworthiness.
No one teaches you this but when one person persuades another, change is occurring that doesn’t come without trust.
Just because someone says “no” to your proposal/idea doesn’t mean they don’t trust you, but it MIGHT mean that.

We’ll deal with the human face to face elements first and then we’ll look at the marketing online aspects.
