What To Do When You Meet People Asking For Money
It is understandable that you would get annoyed listening to people promoting their never ending products. Since we can’t run away from this, what can you do when this situation happens again?
Don’t reject so fast
When you meet with people asking for charity, listen first. Let them speak before you show them ‘the hand’. Who knows you might feel compassionate for their cause.
Reject when you don’t like it
Like mentioned earlier, most people reject even before the tele-sales person could finish their sentence. Give them a chance to speak and if you do not like it after listening for awhile, then reject them. But if they are promoting something that got you interested, continue listening.
Learn how they pitch
If you are a sales person or you are managing a sales team, this is a good chance to get tips. Listen to how the person over the phone is trying to sell you their products. If you like their style, learn it and adapt it. If you don’t like the way they pitch, remember to train your sales team to avoid that method!
Although you may not be interested in their product now, you might be in the future. It is best to stay updated about what the market offers.
Lesson here, don’t reject people so fast. Listen first and if it is something that interests you, go on listening.Reject only after listening to their product and you find that you are not interested in it. Who knows, after listening to how they pitch, you will get interested in their product, learn more about new products or even learn their sales pitch.
