Barrington, IL (PRWEB) December 14, 2004
Anyone who works in business sales or selling can appreciate true, often tragic, often side-splitting tales of sales-pitches-gone-bad in a new comic book that shows anyone who sells for a living what behaviors to adopt and what to avoid Â in order to further their success in selling.
Published by Sales Autopsy Press, this colorful 24-page volume contains the first edition of hilarious, most memorable moments from a collection of over 500 blunders. Targeted to 30 million U.S. sales professionals and entrepreneurs, the stories reveal how tough the selling life is. The book is a one-of-a-kind gift for anyone involved in selling, training or management.
The collection of cartoons includes amusing selling disaster such asÂ
- The printing salesman who mistakes a clientÂs wife for football commentator John Madden
- The two reps who drink frozen pop before a call and walk into their prospectÂs office looking like circus clowns
- An entrepreneur who is caught killing a prospectÂs chicken during a call at a large corporate farm, and
- The poor rookie advertising rep who is attacked by an enraged woman buyer when she realizes heÂs selling time on Howard SternÂs radio program
ÂCorporate gifts tend to be fairly ordinary Â shirts, hats, pens,Â says Dan Seidman, creator of The Sales Comic Book. ÂWe wanted something that created ÂGreat idea!Â comments and laughter from delighted gift givers and receivers.Â
ÂIf you are selling for a living, this is the perfect reading experience to relieve the stress of all your work,Â says Seidman. ÂAll the pressure salespeople feel from butting heads with buyers during telemarketing, cold calling and lead generation activities can be discouraging. Laughter can restore oneÂs spirits and help get past all the rejection and negative interactions with prospects.Â
The Sales Comic Book is retail-priced at $12.95 with a special new-release offering of $9.95. Sales Managers will want to order the comic book in bulk for their teams. The cover can be customized for large orders. Samples can be viewed at http://www.salescomics.com.
