From The Publisher:
Don’t let your creative ideas get picked apart and put down!
If you’re like most creative people, chances are high that you’ve had your share of ideas rejected by clients or decision makers. While we sometimes make the mistake of believing ideas should sell themselves, the fact is that the better and bolder the idea, the more it needs selling. This book contains powerful techniques to help you sell your ideas to those with approval power. You’ll find tips from designers, writers, marketers and other creative professionals, along with meaty advice from selling and branding gurus. In no time, you’ll be able to convince those who hold the purse strings that your ideas are worth pursuing and investing in.

—Sally Hogshead, author of Fascinate
