Sales Joke of the Day (April 20) Going Bald.

A bald salesman had a real hang-up  about his lack of hair.  He had tried all types of treatments, but without success.  Then one day he passed a barber's shop with a sign in the window that read:  "Bald men.  Your Problems Solved Instantly.  You too can have a head of hair like mine for $500."  And beneath the sign was a photo of the barber with his flowing mane of hair. 

So the bald salesman went into the shop and asked the barber: "Can you guarantee that for $500 my hair will instantly look like yours?"

"Certainly," said the barber.  "It will take no more than a few seconds for us to look exactly alike."

"Okay then," said the bald salesman, handing over the money.  "Let's go for it."

The barber took the salesman's money and then shaved his own hair off.

Moral of the story.  True sales professionals know that if an offer sounds too good to be true it probably is.  They also understand that sales professionals have an inner respect for polished sales presentations and sometimes have a hard time saying no.  Remember before purchasing anything, use all those objections you face each week.  The sales rep you're working with might just teach you something new when it comes to handling them.
