When were you given a NO, and not able to turn that into a YES?

4 Answers

Not every person will agree to purchasing a home security system, or see the worth in cell phone activated lighting, and there’s nothing wrong with that. A good salesman not only recognizes opportunities for a sale, but understands when continuing to try to sell to a customer might not only fail, but cause that customer to leave with a bad impression, potentially hurting future sales. Less

You were not able to turn that no into a yes because you didn't want to deal with the situation. Did you really give it enough time to cool down and turn things up for the better? Or did you give up because you were starting to get a little bit irritated yourself? That's the better question in my opinion Less
