Sales Joke of the Day (April 8) The Internet.

A salesman down on his luck, joined an internet dating site.  His first date was with a girl at a hospital.  When he went to meet her, she said: "I don't know if the the website told you, but I only have a few weeks to live."

The salesman responded:  "That's okay, I don't know if the website told you, but I was only looking for a short-term relationship anyway."

Moral of the story.  True sales professionals know that in order to succeed in sales you need to be an expert on the internet.  More specifically you need to become an expert with internet searches.   All the information you need on prospects, products and competitors is out there, just waiting for you to exploit it!  Are you bold enough to take advantage of it?

"Getting information off the internet is like taking a drink from a fire hydrant."
