When it comes to any type of salesman, there are often strong opinions and feelings that bubble to the surface. Perhaps you remember a time where a sleazy salesman hounded you so much that you walked away.
Yuck! We don’t blame you for wanting to avoid the hassle of that experience again.
But we’re here to prove that not all salespeople are the same.
Sure, we understand there can be plenty of annoying salesmen you can’t wait to get away from, but there are also helpful folks (such as our team at Platte City Chrysler) who seek to provide you with ample information for making the best buying decision possible and who can make your experience pain free and – dare we say – even enjoyable!
Below are a few of our favorite quotes about salespeople that we think you’ll laugh at, agree with and find interesting.
“I harbor a secret urge to whack a salesman in the face, crack his teeth and put red bumps around his eyes.”
– Hunter S. Thompson, The Rum Diary
“There are worse things in life than death. Have you ever spent an evening with an insurance salesman?”
– Woody Allen
“Sales are Contingent on the attitude of the salesman, not the attitude of the prospect.”
– W. Clement Stone
“If you look at the very best presidents, the most effective presidents, they were always decent salespeople. Ronald Reagan was an extremely effective salesman, very tuned to the people he was selling to, very clear in what he was selling, very resilient and buoyant.”
– Dan Pink
“I remember one day, when things were going frightfully well, I went to buy myself a really smashing car. I asked them to show me a Porsche with an automatic gearbox, and the salesman called over all the other salesmen, and they stood around absolutely roaring with laughter.”
– May Quant
“Being a salesman and an actor were not that dissimilar: It is a good lesson in covering up your feelings. No one wants to buy from someone who looks depressed.”
– Dougray Scott
“I don’t think any rapper can go back. You can be a car salesman, a bank teller – I mean, really good jobs, and people are still gonna look at you and be like, ‘You used to rap; what happened?’”
“I can sell anything that I totally believe in, but I’m a horrible salesman of something I don’t believe in.”
– Nick Woodman
“The salesman knows nothing of what he is selling save that he is charging a great deal too much for it.”
– Oscar Wilde
“When you’re dealing with machines or anything that you build, it either works or it doesn’t, no matter how good of a salesman you are.”
– Marc Andreessen
