How Not To Sell

In the course of business this week I’ve been pricing a lot of various items, new vehicles, flights etc.

It hardly seems possible but people, even sales people are getting less well mannered. Here are three hot tips for selling anything (especially to me)

1) Don’t spend 10 minutes telling me how little money you are making on this transaction.  I don’t believe you nor do I care.

2) Don’t rant about “wasting my time” the second I mention that I looked up the internet for price comparison.

3) Don’t adopt a tone that suggests I should feel guilty for giving you a chance to quote me.

Seriously, my 4 year old knows that if you want to buy/sell/get  something your first job is not to piss the other person off.

End of rant.
