All Elphas having to sell, promote or persuade: does "Clarity trump persuasion" in philosophical vs practical terms?

Safety to buy trumps all in my opinion. Part of safety is clarity (non-confusion). I don't do persuasion. I allow my people to come to me and buy from me when they feel safe to do so. It's my job to help them feel safe.

Very interesting point @HollywLewis! Do you think competitors and industry overall relies more on persuading over your approach?

I think it depends. In my industry I'd definitely say it's about safety/clarity. I definitely think there is a swing happening more towards the safety/clarity side in other industries as well.

I would say yes that clarity trumps persuasion. The logic being that by being clear, the person comes to their own conclusion in realizing that they want/need the product or service. If you persuade, then there's a higher chance that neither apply and they'd more likely return. I'm not the best salesperson to give advice but that's my opinion as to how I prefer to be sold to.Tell me the benefits, be honest, provide good customer service... with those alone, you'll probably have me as a customer for life and referrals. 🤷🏾‍♀️P.S.
