Sales Joke of the Day (February 17) Stamps.

A woman was waiting at a bus stop when a salesman arrived with envelopes and stamps plastered in a neat design all over his bare head.  

The perplexed woman said:  "If it's not a silly question, why have you got envelopes and stamps stuck all over your head in some sort of design?"

"Oh that!" replied the salesman.   "It's just mail pattern baldness."

Moral of the story.   True sales professionals know that in order to succeed at sales, all forms of communication need to be leveraged.   In the information age, when everyone else is using email, perhaps a good old-fashioned, personalized, stamped, hand-written, letter, might just make an impact.   But don't get carried away with all the envelopes and stamps though.  Others might think you've gone postal!
