Smart Selling Lessons from India [VIDEO]
Today I am going to share 6 lessons from my experience in India, because…
Indians are great at selling.
As you probably saw on my Facebook, a month ago I went to a wedding in India and besides enjoying life, I also observed and learnt.
Watch these 6 videos from my trip and discover new strategies and lessons Indian people taught me.
Lesson #1 – Be aware of appearances
On the way to Bhubaneswar Cave, there were a lot of people asking us, the tourists, for money. Of course, I felt harassed. When I reached the top of the mountain, there was yet another guy begging for money.
Obviously, I refused to give him any.
When I left the cave, I found out he was the priest, the real one, in charge with the temple. I realised I should have given him a donation.
The moral of the story is that we need to be careful with appearances. Bad previous experiences may lead us to bad decisions today.

Lesson #2 – Discover from a Tuk Tuk driver how to easily gain business
As I was visiting the old town of Delhi, many tuk tuk drivers offered to take us to our next destination for lower fares.
We said no to all offers, because we wanted to walk, even though the prices were peanuts for us…
Until one clever tuk tuk driver approached us and managed to get us to say yes to his offer for triple the money other drivers asked for!
How did he manage to do this?

This is something we all need to master to get our clients to say yes and to command the fees we deserve.

Lesson #6 – Ask yourself these 3 key Questions before taking any advice
When you are going on holiday, how do you normally get around in a different country?
Initially, I wanted to hire a car because it gives me independence.

And guess what I did?
I listened to him… because he visits India more often than I do.
