What can the sales professional learn from the pickup artist? That’s on the minds of Gina and Keith after reading an article by Michael Schein titled 5 Powerful Sales Lessons From Pickup Artists.
In the article Michael describes 5 lessons gleaned from the book The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artists. Gina and Keith go over these lessons and apply them directly to sales situations they often find themselves in (and you probably do too). Are these lessons valuable or B.S.? Are you ready to take your bar skills out of the bedroom and into the boardroom? Gina and Keith are going rogue and getting experimental. You’ve been warned!
