Having worked in sales while in college, I know there's more than one way to skin a cat.  If I were VP of Sales and Marketing, I'd plan on having my sales folks enrolled in a "How to Pitch it" course - bring them up to date with the newest and best ways to get into the mind of the potential purchaser through better vebalization and presenation.  Just a thought.


 

I think QVC spends a lot of money keeping the hosts trained on latest sales techniques.  It's their bread and butter.


Their sales techniques have NEVER worked on me. I don't believe ANYTHING they say.

"Oh my stars and garters" must really amp up the sales for one particular host because she says it all the time

Re: This is your OPPORTUNITY

My philosophy is: The harder you have to work to sell me something, the less worthwhile it is for me to buy it. When l get the "hard sell" treatment, whether I'm buying clothes, electronics, a car, insurance, investments-- whatever-- l run the other way. If l need to be "talked into" something, l probably shouldn't be buying it in the first place.
