Make a better impression with every client: 5 ChatGPT prompts
Use strategic flattery
The subtle art of paying sincere compliments has magical benefits when you get it right. Paying someone a compliment means they remember you. They develop an affinity towards you and they subconsciously want more. But this has to be done right. Figure out how to comment on the things that really matter to someone, so your compliments come across in the best possible way and not as seedy or cringe. ChatGPT can help you do just that with this prompt.
“Analyze the LinkedIn profile of [prospect’s full name], focusing on their career achievements, interests, and any articles or posts they’ve shared. Identify key areas where they have demonstrated expertise or passion. Based on this information, suggest several sincere compliments or remarks that acknowledge their accomplishments or interests in a genuine and respectful manner. These should be tailored to resonate with the prospect and reflect a true appreciation of their professional journey and personal interests: [Paste information from their LinkedIn profile].”
Mirror their desires
Don’t use guilt or coercion to get someone onboard. That’s what amateurs do. Instead, appeal to their self interest. Explain what’s in it for them. Show them in no uncertain terms what working with you could do for their business, brand or legacy. Do this by knowing what they want for their business, brand or legacy. Ask for ChatGPT’s analysis on their website and company information and upload the brief you’re working from to glean the insights that can work to your advantage.
“Analyze the website and any available company information or sales brief for [prospect’s company name]. Identify key themes, goals, and values that are emphasized by the company. What are their primary business objectives, brand messages, and potential aspirations for future growth or impact? Based on this analysis, suggest powerful ways in which my company, that [explain what your company does], can mirror those desires. Offer strategies on how we can align our services or products with their goals and values, effectively showing the synergy between our companies and the mutual benefits of a partnership.”
Include compelling stories
Storytelling is an age-old method of communicating, remembering information and building rapport. A great story doesn’t just captivate, it convinces. It can reframe someone’s thinking and reprogramme their mind to a more visionary channel. Start your meeting off with an off-the-cuff story that gets your prospect in the right frame of mind, ready to hear what you have to say.
“Now that you understand who I’m meeting with and their business aspirations, please help me craft an engaging story to start our meeting. The story should pique their interest and clearly illustrate the value of partnering with us. Use our recent client success story, where we [explain a recent client win and what it meant for them], as the basis. Transform this achievement into a casual, yet impactful narrative that highlights similar benefits they could expect from working with my company. The story should resonate with their goals and leave a lasting, positive impression.”
Show up to your meeting as the most charismatic version of you to wow your prospect. Leave your tiredness, apathy and excuses at the door and paint on a winning smile ready to welcome them into your world. By energizing your pitch, make yourself desirable to work with. By maximizing the strength of your personality, you make room for someone to give you a shot.
“Reflect on aspects of meetings or presentations that make me feel uncomfortable or less confident, such as [specific issues or concerns]. Based on these, suggest words, phrases, or techniques I can practice in front of a mirror to boost my charisma and confidence. These should help in overcoming my discomforts and in enhancing my communication skills. Additionally, provide tips on maintaining a positive, engaging demeanor throughout the meeting, ensuring I present myself as energetic, approachable, and confident – someone who is highly desirable to work with.”
Adapt to their body language
Being attuned to your prospect’s body language is crucial for a standout pitch. It’s about much more than their words; it’s the subtle shifts, specific reactions, and what remains unsaid that speak volumes. Understand and adapt to your prospect’s nonverbal cues to create a connection beyond business. Make your meeting a memorable experience by empathizing and reading the room effectively. Use ChatGPT to sharpen this skill, ensuring your pitch resonates deeply and leaves a lasting impression, making the callback ever more likely.
“Before my upcoming pitch meeting, I want to prepare for different types of energy or behaviors my prospect might exhibit. Please ask me to describe hypothetical scenarios or cues. For each scenario I provide, explain what it could imply about the prospect’s mindset or interest. Also, advise on how I can best tailor my pitch to these potential cues.”
