U can sell better with a sense of humour.

Laughter is the best medicine for our heart. I gave them by applying sense of humour to all my approaches in every meeting, whether they were friends or strangers. Before I proceeded to the main reasons for each call, I always started with some jokes relevant to our meets. Depending on each personality and character, I created jokes and laughter related to their liking. To the good boys, my jokes were clean and fun and to the naughty guys, my humour could be the cheeky one. Meaning, I could talk heaven or hell, angels or devils, man or women, until they laugh through their heart. These were the fastest way to break the ice or egg for building good relationship in selling or even meeting new acquaintances.

To have good sense of humour, one has to develop this skill gradually. You need courage and plenty of creativity. Buy some books on fun and laughter where you can gather some sensible pointers. Once you have acquired the know how, you will be on a journey of fun and laughter. Nobody would be bored by your present and everyone loves to be associated with you. If you want to be an effective salesperson, learn to develop the art of having fun and laughter. Not only you can be successful in your career, you will be happier and heathier as well. Start to laugh now!

"Laughter is the shortest distance between two people." said Victor Borge.
