    Hi @Matt Heinz thanks for the seminar. 

    I missed the live one and just finished watching the on demand version. What advice would you give for the following situations:

    1. Clients who find it difficult to open up -  I find it hardest to build a relationship with them in the pool that I deal with
    2. Clients who don't have the funds as of now and would come back later. You mentioned something about setting the base for them. How do we make sure the client is as fired up about the product say a few weeks down the road?

    Looking forward to your reply. thanks !!!

    My goal isn't usually to get people fired up about the product, but rather fired up about the outcome  that is represents.  If prospects can envision, articulate and/or quantify the business impact your product or solution represents, that's something that can have stronger, more stable staying power until budget unfreezes. 

    Not everyone is comfortable "opening up".  And in some cases it's because they don't yet trust you, or worry that you'll turn around in a "bait and switch" format just to pitch them.  In these cases, you can more effectively warm up prospects by your generosity.  Give content, give ideas, what content without expecting anything in return.  Some prospects will then let down their guard and share more with you.
