#1. Salesman: “I would like to give your company the opportunity to become our biggest customers”
#2. Customer: “You are a pretty good sales rep except for the 9 times you called me Mr Wallet instead of Walter”
#3. During a sales training: “Remember the secret to selling is sincerity. Once you can fake that you have got it made”.
#4. Sales Manager to his boss: “The sales team did really well. So I think the blame for the declining sales has to fall on the consumer”
#5. Potential customer replying to a salesman’s phone call who is prospecting: “No this Thursday is out. How about never – will never suit you?”
#6. Sales Manager sends an email to his potential customer:
I haven’t heard from you back and that tells me one of three possible things:
1. You have already chosen a different company. If that’s the case please do let me know so that I stop bothering you.
2. You’re still interested but haven’t had the time to get back to me.
3. You had a fall and can’t get back, in which case I will call 911.
Please let me know which one of the three is am worrying about. Looking forward to hear from you soon.
