Re: New job in hunting sales
Things not to do:
#1 If a woman comes to the counter with her boyfriend/husband and SHE wants to see a gun, hand it to the bf/hubby (buddy had this happen to him and his wife)
#2 Customer asks for a brand x, model y - salesman grabs something else (more expensive) and hands it to the customer - customer says I wanted to see the brand x model y - salesman says "I thought you wanted quality".
customer gets [img]images/icons/mad.gif[/img] and says "when you pay for the gun, then you can decide what I can get" (watched this happen with another buddy).
The point is to listen to the customer, odds are they have an idea as to what they want. Shawn's comments are right on the money as well. I will add that the more you know about what the store carries and where will help also, but will take time to learn.
And Shawn C, Please, oh please turn off the caps lock! Its like you are YELLING AT THE TOP OF YOUR LUNGS. Thanks.
I keep nature balanced - I hunt everything!
