I've recently finished a book entitled "Positioning, The Battle for your Mind" by Al Ries and Jack Trout.
i have been trying to finish the book for N number of weeks already, and finally i did! (no excuses, i know!)
the book taught me how companies battle it out. how they compete with one another, and the different strategies that they implement to be the best/Number 1. the book also states that it is more effective to play with the information that is already in the prospects head, and not bash them with new information.
so rather than asking the question "Ang Pogi ko diba?" , try to see if she thinks you are and then devise strategies from there.
dont try to force the concept into her, if at the very first instance she already thought that you are not!
But don't fret, the book also teaches ways on how to go over/under/around the concept to change the perception (for more information, BUY THE BOOK! tradepaper back available at fullybooked!)
going back to the point, the authors suggested that in order to win the consumer war, you have to position your product in such a way that it can relate to the customer/buyer. be first in the field and keep it that way. have a unique position, but keep the appeal broad. retain the position, but ensure different strategies to keep the position intact.
positioning is everything! (not to be blasphemous or anything, but i i think this book should be the bible of many aspiring entrepreneurs/business starters)
