The day that I got burned was the day I finally got a grip on the difference between integrity in sales and cheap sales tactics.
I signed up for a Sales Training event and was looking forward to it! I dreamed more and more about the excellent knowledge that Zig was going to share!
Yes! Zig Ziglar was going to speak at this event!
Finally, the day of the event came, and I sat as close to the stage as possible! For the first ½ hour I sat on the edge of my seat, listening intently to the warm-up speakers talk about Time Management and what was and was not crucial. This information was somewhat useful, but nothing new.
Cheep Sales Tactics
I was geared up to hear from Zig! My Sales Guru!
The lights dimmed, music cued up, (I think it may have been “Eye of The Tiger”…I can’t quite remember if that was playing in my head or not!) The big moment….
Slowly and with great patience, with two people supporting him on either side of a walker. Poor old’ Zig shuffled onto the stage. He was so old and feeble; it made me feel sorry for him! He could barely stay focused long enough to answer the questions. His voice was cracked and weak and to top it off, he seemed bewildered and overwhelmed by all the lights, noise and the crowd.
After just a few questions and a few minutes, they escorted, ahem…sorry, they helped him off the stage, the rest of the event was spent pitching whatever program they were selling. I don’t even remember the exact details. Maybe it was investing and making millions in just a few short months, flipping houses.
These sleazy people made me so mad, because they were taking advantage of this fantastic legend, only to draw a crowd. And it worked too! The auditorium was overflowing!
Well, that was it, I was done with the HYPE of Salesy Shit! I don’t care how much money they made during that event! That day I vowed to always approach sales, marketing and sales training with transparent integrity!
