Persuasion is contextual.
I might try and persuade you to buy this tiny automobile safety hammer from me but you’re not interested.
Tomorrow you’re trapped in a car flooding with ice cold water. Suddenly I can be very persuasive.
Today I cannot persuade you to hire my services or buy my product.
But tomorrow, I can persuade you to listen and open your wallet.
I just need to be patient and persistent.
Does anybody need a box of 1,000 tiny automobile safety hammers? I seem to have an excess of them on my hands.
