because if they're having a certain promotion or need x amount of sales for a certain item you have to be able to talk that item up by knowing the product well . Also what if you're all out of whatever they wanted? Then they just leave the store and go look somewhere else when you could have still made a sale by introducing them to product x. For example with the kitten, sell them a savannah cat, super cute with the qualities of a dog. can poop in a litter box so it's great for apartments or places with no backyard or be trained for outside, can walk on leashes, don't need to be walked though. So it's not an obligation like it is with a dog. Super cute and not as common as dogs so it'll get you lots of attention from the ladies.
Sales is about pushing a product period.
I work retail and you know how many times someone has come in for something we didn't have and instead of saying "we're out" I walk them around the store pretending to look for it and walk them past some of our most popular pieces while doing it.

Sure but happy customers will be repeat customers, and some of your most loyal.

Sure the best sales man in the world could see refrigerators to Eskimos, but in a week they're going to realize that they really didn't need it or want it.

I used to sell electronics on commission and returned items came out of your check, so I would upsell, but only if it was really worth it for the customer.

The point is they can push a particular product which means they can get better deals from suppliers. Having some loyal repeat customers is nice, but when you can land better unit costs on your shipments it amounts to more money per unit sold.

It might have something to do with stock and which items dont see many sales. Manager should have ordered stock according to consumer demand instead of stocking everything equally

GameStop has gotten it aaaaall wrong. You help them find the Game THEY want, and offer them with the service of your gaming experience. They are hiring idiots, who manipulates, or tries to manipulate

It's goes all the way up, manipulator a are who they hire because it's what their buissness model needs.

You have it in quotation marks. People would still know you're refering to head-up-arseness.

I liked Stargate Universe but it just felt to me like they were trying to copy Battlestar Galactica. I mean, I was actually looking forward to a slightly darker tone in the stargate franchise but I just felt that despite all the development, there were not any really likeable characters. Some were alright but there wasn't a single person that I could identify with, except for Eli, Eli was great.

Random thought. Have you ever noticed the chain of command in these series is kind of strange? I mean, in Stargate Atlantis you had Colonel Sumner and then Lieutenant Ford. Major Sheppard didn't get put in till the last minute. Which means you had a full bird Colonel commanding the military personnel...and a Lieutenant as his executive officer. No other Captains, Majors or Lieutenant Colonels...

Same kind go goes for SGU but that made sense because the people that ended up on Destiny were the people who were chosen for the expedition.

For me, sgu was about 90% talking. That's too much talking.

It focused more on characters and they felt more like inviduals than just character types. I love SG1 and SGA don't get me wrong. But I feel like they kind of just copy pasted characters a smidge too much. Like SG1 had a good charm to it. It felt like watching a b-movie in the beginning but the overall plot and the backstory for the plot is what you watch it for. SGA felt like SG1 with a quite a few recycled elements. At least with SGU they were so far removed from everything else it was difficult to recycle anything. That being said I will acknowledge they felt tlike they had to shoehorn in an episode about the Lucian Alliance almost taking over Destiny just to be a huge reminder that it's still connected to the other shows but also to have some fodder to be killed off later without having to kill more of the main cast.

You failed the point of the exercise though. The scenario you act out in the exercise is "We're a company that's selling x". You can't suddenly offer the customer y even though your company doesn't sell it.

The whole excercise was supposed to take place at a pet store that also apparaently sold dogs. Why should I convince a customer to buy something that is completely different than what they want?

"I want to buy overwatch"

"Why not buy Battleborn?"

"Because I want overwatch"

"Okay, that'll be $xx.xx"

"You failed the excercise because you were supposed to sell me battleborn."
