9 Sales Tactics Bollywood Teaches Us
The minute one utters the word ‘Salesperson‘, the image that comes to the mind is that of a guy ringing the doorbell and exclaiming, ”Madam, would you like to purcha…” right before getting the door slammed on his face after which we resume watching that afternoon movie on TV. A while later, when pondering over the banal existence of that poor salesperson, one starts wishing he would have learnt sales skills from our very own Bollywood actors, which might have yielded different results.
Well, here is a list of actors who sure have some excellent selling skills!
1. Alia Bhatt
Confidence is the most crucial sales technique that every salesperson must possess. More importantly, talking crap with conviction is what will distinguish you from the herd, just like Alia.
The litmus test of a salesperson is when he has to market a bad product with conviction. SRK has outdone himself in this domain, to the extent that all of us got fooled into watching Happy New Year. Well, most of us anyway.
3. Rakhi Sawant
When you are in sales, you need to be without any inhibitions like Rakhi. One can almost imagine her walking into a sales meeting and shouting out aloud “May Jejuss help you fulfill your targets!”
4. Tusshar Kapoor
If there is anything that you must give due credit to this guy for, it would be his amazing negotiation skills. He did try to relaunch his career innumerable times in spite of his abominable acting skills.
5. Katrina Kaif
Why do you think Katrina Kaif’s movies work? So keep this in mind – if you do not have any useful sales skills, you need to be smokin’ hot at the very least!
6. Emraan Hashmi
Well, he has some consistent track record of kissing in every single movie of his. Consistency is the only sales technique that will save your ass from getting fired. Also, who knows, you might just end up getting lucky when you ring the doorbell one day!
7. Yo Yo Honey Singh
If you have reached a saturation point in your career, just add “Yo Yo” in front of your name and start selling alcohol to become the Salesperson of the Millennium.
8. Amir Khan
If you want to sell a radio, go with only a radio! Talk less, show ….ooops…sell more! Just ensure you have the physique to pull this off before you try it.
9. Bipasha Basu
And finally, Bipasha started with modelling, went on to acting and when everything failed took to selling Yoga DVDs. Be open to alternate careers in life!
