On the right is the new stuff, it's equivalent, so rather than talking about your features, trying telling your story or even better the story of how clients use your stuff and how it's helped solve their problem.

You don't have to try all 14, just try two or three.

First make sure that you stuff is remarkable.

No one wants average stuff anymore.

Remember what happened to Woollies!
