You may be wondering:

“How’ll I know a stranger before he visits?”

This is how:

1. Befriend an Imaginary Person

Who’s your imaginary friend?

You may have one, but how much do you know him?

Everyone has a friend like that.

And we all have dreams – your friend has, so better you look for his.

Visualize this guy – your persona.

This person must agree with you. If he doesn’t, be in the known. But never impose on him.

Meaning: you’re required to know – His dreams. His likes. What he’s thinking. Why he’s acting in a way – in fact everything about him.

And a more personal, persuasive blog posts will be your portion.

You’ve got to win his heart.

Francis and Gina

Read the story below to figure out how to do it:

My salary: $250 per month.

I met her.

I spent $750. I spent my 3 months’ salary at a sitting on her.

Thought I could impress her on that date.

We’re drinking coke; I reveal my mind (Not my heart).

And she was like, I’ve got to go.

Fortunately on her part, Rachel, her friend calls. Off she goes.

Leaving me on this God forbidden day, she says “see you again, Francis.”

I’m wasting her time.

There is something else she prefers.

My approach seemed perfect. But it was lacking.

What have I done wrong?

She cares less about me treating her good by expending on her.

Besides, she doesn’t know I earn that little.

The thing is, I never thought of her interest.

That’s why I say, “Never let your pages feel like a sales pitch.”

Today, as it has always been, put your reader’s benefits first.

So, to make conversion happen, know, understand, and help your imaginary friend to be happy. That’s it.

It’s a heart work.

It’s psychology.

To befriend him, don’t make the mistake I made in this fabricated story. Learn from it.

Hope you’re inspired.
