    Did you try to present them just your best design with a strong explanation?

    Only show them your best work. If they then pick the "worst" of the three, you won't be diappointed either.

    I wish there was a solid answer to this question. Sometimes I just only present the best option if I know it's "the one."

    As most have said, only show them the options you want chosen, and explain the options and why you think what is best. You have to learn them to look at it from a designer's perspective and then they'll eventually understand!

    I usually submit one proposal but very well made ​​and justified. If you believe in this proposal you can get someone to believe in it.

    Yes, only present options you are happy with. NEVER something you don't like. And remember to invest equal time in all options as it's easy to sink more time into your favorite.

    Share only what you think will work. Clients always chose the worst option. Promise one option only and if you come up with another that you are happy with - share two. always worked for me

    Make sure you present the work face to face. If you provide a strong rationale for your favourite route, more often than not they'll go for it.

    My perspective on this is that it's never a good solution to show a lot of options to a client. I believe this is simply distracting and you might find yourself in the position of having to try to mix different parts of different concepts. Still, it can be tricky to show only one option as he might not be happy with it and you have to go back again to the blank page.

    So, my experience tells me that you should present and defend with true confidence ONE solution, that ONE that you believe it's the best solution for him and his business and defend it with your professional advice and expertise. If it goes wrong just pop up your plan B, your second favorite one

    I found out that showing three options is the most effective. Two - the client will think you didn't put much effort, more than three - the client gets confused. So three options with the one I like the most with label 'recommended' and few reasons why you recommend that option, should do the trick! Best luck for you.

    Some great advise here, a problem I'm always having. When in doubt I use my old bosses saying "enthusiasm is everything" and make it seem like its there choice to use pick the design and make it seem like it will be a great journey to do so with arguments routed in history and logic

    I believe it has to do with the way you explain what you're selling... A client will feel more reassured or secure to choose what you recommendem to choose, when there's clarity on the process, but also in the words selected.

    At the end of the day, the customer is always right (/sigh). I think most of the time that if they pick a lesser design than you'd prefer, they usually end up disappointed and are more willing to listen to you next time around
