Introduction In the presidential elections of 2012, Nate Silver, a political blogger was seen to do something that many people thought to happen rarely in the world dominated by the bloggers. He was seen to have attempted to do some predictions. While Nate was doing his predictions, he was accused of being motivated by ideology terming his predictions a joke.

like to jump right into business, but rather need to be “buttered up.” This small talk eventually did lead into the topic of the product by way of a “lead-in.” Sometimes Nate will visit the customer, but won’t mention his own product. He will discuss some of the problems that doctors are seeing with patients. Nate will ask them how they recommend to fix the problem. Then Nate will leave without giving a usual spiel. Sometimes that makes the doctors scratch their heads. Nate will then return later and remind them of the previous conversation that they had. Nate will then transition into a presentation according to the conversation. Nate reads the same things that customers (doctors) are reading, such as medical journals. He will ask customers if they read the article in The Green Journal. He does this to show that he is interested in the same things as the customers, but more importantly show that he has credibility. This gains the trust of the customer, and shows that he knows what he is talking about. If he isn’t up to date, it is like “taking financial advice from a homeless person.”
