Imagine having the best idea in the world. One that solves a real problem. But you just can’t convince others to make it happen. The dream is dead! Killed before it even started!
That’s why Jeroen decided to write a book about it.
First and foremost, this book is written with creatives, brand managers, and marketers in mind. Besides creating things (brand identities, products, services, experiences, spaces, etc.) the biggest part of our job is convincing others to make ideas actually happen.
But it’s also a good place to start for anyone who feels that they’re not always in control of their ideas, or finds it difficult to get support from others.
In this book you’ll learn how to get buy-in from others, and discover more about how to:
A clear goal helps you and your teammates focus when creating ideas.
Learn how to describe your ideas so that they become so clear and bright that they are ready to be pitched.
To get the necessary buy-in, we must first understand who we are pitching to.
Let’s get ready for the big day: the moment you deliver your pitch.
All the preparations are done. The moment to pitch has come.
“Pitching Ideas is the most comprehensive book I have seen on the topic. Packed with tons of useful advice, examples, and templates. Get it.”
