You're not going to prove them wrong for refusing to buy your product; you're going to create a way they can buy it. You're not going to demonstrate their ignorance; you're going to educate them. You're not going to overcome customer objections; you're going to answer their questions. Above all, you're not going to win the argument; you're going to win the sale. It's a different attitude.
