Default Re: High pressure sales techniques

I have been selling drumkits for nearly two decades and the sales pitch has changed because the retail market has changed. Its a desperate affair out there.

The retailers who 'get it' dont force anyone onto anything, as they understand that customers are far more savvy than they used to be and dont like being pressured, bullied or tricked into things theyd otherwise not want to be a part of.

Its also important to point out that customer attitudes are far worse than they used to be, and unfortunately many seem to think theyre hearing a sales pitch when you are in fact trying to give them the information they asked for.

Sales training aint for the weak, and not everyone can do it!
