His advice to the sales people in order to be an extraordinarily good sales person is you shouldalways work on ( “When you meet with your clients you must sell them something before ending the meeting, if today they are unable to buy your products, make sure you will sell them something before they leave such as outstanding experience and new knowledge about the products”). If you apply this attitude with each client and remain positive at the end of the client visit even if they didn’t buy from you, eventually some other day you will end up selling your products to 90% of them. https://instagram.com/ak_minute2motiv8?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y=
