Win their Hearts and Minds

What if we told you that there were just two simple things you needed to do to persuade your audience to make the decision you want them to make? And what if we told you that those two simple things were as simple as HAM? Yes, HAM.

We’ve been working with Cooperatives and other membership organizations for a long time, and we’ve learned some important lessons along the way. One of the things we’ve learned is that persuasion is all about HAM.

How do you make people buy a product, advocate for a cause, or vote for a candidate? Whether you hope that a consumer will buy something or a Member-Owner will “Like” you on Facebook, the same two things have to happen: you need to capture that person’s heart and their mind. You need to win their HAM (Heart And Mind).

No matter what you’re trying to convince someone about — an idea, an issue, a person, a product, or anything else you’re trying to “sell” — you need to win their hearts and their minds. Win the heart and you’ve won the emotional appeal; win the head and you’ve won the logical appeal. Win them both, and you’ve got their vote, their transaction, or their donation.

If you can convince somebody’s HAM, you'll have them in your wheelhouse to support your cause, make the decision that you want them to make, or to vote for the candidate you want them to vote for.

Howdy! This article couldn't be written much better!

Looking through this article reminds me of my previous roommate!
He continually kept preaching about this. I am going to forward this post to him.
Fairly certain he's going to have a very good read.
Thanks for sharing!

Is anyone else having this problem or is it a issue on my end?

I'll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.

Hi there! I know this is kind of off-topic however I had to ask.

Does running a well-established website like yours require a lot of
work? I'm brand new to operating a blog but I do write in my journal
everyday. I'd like to start a blog so I can share my experience and thoughts online.
Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips
for new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!

This design is spectacular! You obviously know how to keep a reader amused.
Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my
own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Excellent job.
I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
Too cool!
