The 4 Golden Words That Will Open Your Donor’s Heart to Your Cause

/

I'm about to reveal my Golden Formula for opening a donor's heart to my cause.

I also use this to find out what a donor is thinking about my presentation.

I use these 4 words all the time - and I get terrific benefits and feedback! I can't tell you how valuable they have been to me.

It's a very simple, single question. And it is guaranteed to evoke a response from your donor that tells you where he stands.

But more importantly, it generates the donor's own thinking about your issue.

It encourages him to ponder your presentation, to digest your material, to think about it, to react to it. It encourages him to embrace what you have just said.

Here is my key to success.

I ask this Golden Question:

"What are your impressions? . . . .

And then I shut up and listen carefully.

This question encourages the donor to think more deeply about what you've presented. She is not going to get hot and bothered about your cause just by listening to YOU do all the talking.
