5 Sales Blooper Stories

By  Bess McCarty


1) Yesterday an insurance salesman called. “You sent us a card saying you want more info?” “Yes.” “Can we meet Tuesday?” He was very nice, but before I spent time with him, I wanted to know if this would meet my needs. I asked my cost if I didn’t get his insurance? I wanted stats on the average occurrences and costs of them. He partially answered, then pushed for the appointment. If he wouldn’t hear me and respond now, why would I believe he would when we met? Or that he’d have the stats I wanted? He said, “I can’t help you.” He was right…

2) A friend called to tell me a new mlm company he’s with.
“I have all this stuff… all this stuff… all this stuff…at discount…” it was a few minutes before I could say, “Ralph, I don’t use this stuff.” What would it have been like if he’s said, “Bess, do you use this stuff?” If yes, “Would you like to save money on this stuff?” if yes, “I have a discount buying club. Would you like to hear a little about it?”

3) I had a meeting with a network marketer. Gerald talked over ½ hour about allll the facets of his company without asking WHICH parts I may be interested in, which was a few. He talked 98%, not allowing my questions, nor asking me any. I didn’t buy…

4) A new friend on Facebook called me by phone to see what benefit we might be to each other. I had a few possible mutual projects in mind. Jean was very warm and interested, UNTIL she realized I wasn’t a prospect for her network marketing company. “Gotta go!” The projects never got talked about…

5) You all have gotten spammed by email or Facebook by network marketers. “Join my business!” How attractive is it when someone doesn’t care about you? It’s about THEM!

"As a coach, teacher, and healer, I help people solve problems. I uncover and address the missing core needs, thus eliminating the problems, such as fears and negative beliefs, so they can achieve in their careers, have satisfying relationships, and enjoy vibrant health.

There is nothing quite so sacred and beautiful as that moment of working with a person who has a personal and spiritual transformation, as a certain magic happens that is beyond us both."
