If I had hired your team to sell Global Warming Toothpaste, based on the sales numbers, I would fire your team, and hire a new public relations firm. A firm that can get things done.

Seriously, you need to rethink your strategy.
So, tell us, how do you reason someone out of a position they didn't use reason to get to?

I can't sell toothpaste to someone who refuses to brush his teeth. And as his teeth are falling out of his head, he'll be complaining that we didn't do enough to reach out to him and CONVINCE him that he needs to brush his teeth.

That I'm not able to sell my toothpaste to people who don't believe in the benefits of oral hygiene does not mean that I should fire the people who have proven the benefits of oral hygiene.
