Using The Power Of Imagination For Persuasive Salesmanship

power of imagination for persuasive salesmanshipSometimes when you introduce a product to a prospect, he may resist your attempt to sell him.

  • What if he loses his job because of his illness? How will he support himself? And what about his family? Who will put food on the table for them…?
