I’ve mentioned before about salesmen not knowing what they’re talking about and a conversation I just had about a half hour ago with my former sister-in-law proves it. I asked her if she had a Kindle. She said the salesman talked them out of it and said they needed an ipad for what they wanted - which was a reading device that also played games, and then said you can’t play games on a Kindle.
That really ticked me off and I said he was lying. He also told her that to be connected to the internet you had to pay a monthly fee. Another lie. I could tell she wasn’t quite believing me because after all, I’m an internet marketer and this guy works at Best Buy in the electronics section.
I know that’s a bit unfair to say he was lying, maybe he just didn’t have a clue about the product. Maybe all he knew about was ipads. Maybe he was trying to persuade them to buy the ipad by making Kindle look like a reading only device. Either way, there wasn’t a single thing he told her that was true.
So, anyway, we booted up her computer and I took her to amazon.com. I showed her the Kindle page and the comparison chart between the 3 Kindles. I showed her where it says FREE 3G access. I took her to the Kindle Store and showed her the games you can play on your Kindle. She was dumbstruck. This guy, she thought would have had a clue, didn’t have a clue at all! More, I feel sorry for Best Buy because they’re losing sales thanks to this guy.
It truly pays to do your homework before going to a store to buy something. On the other hand, thanks to the clueless salesman - I’ve made a sale, because I sell Kindles through amazon. : ) So, thank you clueless salesman for helping me make a sale that goes towards paying off my hot water tank!
By the way, in an act of shameless self-promotion and the pursuit of paying that thing off, if you’re in the market for buying a Kindle, click here for easy access! There’s a ton of information on the page, from a chart that lets you compare the Kindle models, to videos and more.
Make it a great day!
