Doesn’t mean you have to care about the topic at first hand. Use Amusing Anecdote At The End of the Argument Doesn’t have to go through all of it for each issue Just know where you stand Be mindful of it being coherent and sequenced with its evidence. Win your audience by persuasion, start at the bottom up If your aim is to be righteous then start w/strong arguments then add in stories You’re Arguing That It Is Superior To Do It That Way Superior to a yes or no.

Scientific evidence 2. Accepted fact 3. Expert testimonial 4. “I Witness” traditions, cultural mores 5. Gossip “heard…” Presentation of Evidence - not a simple matter Evidence changes in its valuation over time. Its not the same throughout all time Back it up with current evidence.

Transcript: Young people are gardening too! Reach them Interest them Engage them We are partners in their gardening success! Once we attract them, we have to keep their interest with fresh ideas & relevant content, inspire them with a catalog they want to live in, and impress them with a website they view as a trusted source of knowledge. Greater brand awareness: gardeners of all ages know who we are! Expanded customer base: our current core demographic is still loyal but comprises a smaller percentage of the whole. Increased demand: since we have added a new group of customers to our file, total demand has increased and the employee-owners are happy! Partnerships with brands our target customers love and trust Advertising where it counts As much as we know we need new customers, we also do not want to alienate our current customers. Some concepts are riskier than others so we will provide ideas of different options. Throughout our presentation, there will be a theme of three options for each major idea. They are all independent of each other, so GSC can pick and choose what we want to pursue and test. The dream: these will be the most radical ideas that carry the most risk Middle of the road: less risk than the dream, but probably not as snazzy Fail fast, fail cheap: there are ideas we are confident GSC can test without compromising the performance of our core demographic Now that we have them, we need to retain them and remain relevant as they evolve as gardeners. Our concept Fresh creative approach Relevancy emails More stories about good works and real people on our website Let's celebrate our awesome guarantee by shouting it from the rooftops! Great service should be synonymous with the GSC brand so both our experienced and new-to-gardening customers aren't afraid to fail in the garden. Results Acquisition and brand awareness Customers are the roots of a successful business. We have to do a better job of attracting and retaining the younger demographic so they can grow into the gardeners we can support for a lifetime. Foundation Our guarantee Innovative, foolproof products at various price points Increased social media presence Faster, cheaper shipping Loyalty programs
