I fucking hate it when people say “I can sell ice to an Eskimo.”
Congrats. You’ve officially called yourself a sleazy sales person. Or a piece of shit. Not terrible sure which one but they seem equally the same to me. But why? Doesn’t this mean I’m really good at sales? No, it means you suck.
It means you sell shit to people that don’t need it. It means you don’t give a shit about the person on the other end. It means you listen about as good as my damn dog (she doesn’t listen to shit).
Whatever you do, don’t be that person. Listen to your customer. Find out what it is they need. If they don’t need what you have, let that shit go. You can’t sell something to everyone. Rant over.
