she: Sir, can I make a visit today?
My H: sorry mam, today I am very busy as our MD is coming and I will reach home very late.
She No problem sir, I can come at 8.30
Now my husband already gets very little time in the weekdays at home, so we didnt want to waste that talking to her, so my H comes home and calls her...
MY H: Mam, I am busy in the meeting and will reach home very late.
She: Sir, I can come around 9PM.
It was so difficult to get rid of her, she was not taking any hint and kept telling us her half baked advice ( MY H is a pro at financial knowledge and very few can come up to his standard).....I would say its not selling..its pestering a person and making him/her so irritated that he wouldnt ever like to do business with you. My purpose in writing this episode is to make it obvious is that I dont think a sales executive should behave in such a way..when they are given training, they must be taught the difference between pursuing and pestering, judging a client..whether he is a novice or with a few investment or he is someone who has been investing for 30 years, and advice accordingly. You are not selling a soap of 30 rupees, where sometimes one buys just get rid of them. Specially in the financial sector, it is contrary to make agents indiscriminately without giving them sufficient knowledge or their capabilities.I have come across very few representative who could REALLY advice us intelligently.
Recently i saw a few Episodes of Khatro ke Khiladi..amazing show and Akshay is just marvellous in his handling..his persona comes across clearly,,such a friendly and nice person.
