The Best Way To Sell Eggnog

At the bar we often experiment with different types of drink and food. For the holiday season we have a few special drinks. It’s not worth selling them since they’re cheaper than an average glass of wine, but I like trying to see if I can push them onto customers anyway. I’m all about the challenge.

Top sellerI learned that singing the praises of the drink is not that effective. Even if the ingredients are top notch, most people are not very adventurous, and it’s hard to move them to buy something they don’t know.

So this is what I do. I decide which drink I want to sell for a particular customer and then I say:

“This drink is selling very well. It’s one of our most popular drinks.”

The key word is “popular.” It works most of the time. Without hesitation people will buy what other people are buying, because there’s the assumption if it’s popular then it has to be good. This is why books on the bestseller list tend to stay on the bestseller lists. And this is why girls will date guys they know have slept with a lot of women. To their friends they’ll say something like, “Eww he probably has a lot of diseases,” but they’ll bang him anyway, probably without a condom.

it’s somewhat of a rational response. we can’t always have full information about something, so it’s often smart to follow the cues of other people.

the problem arises when people loose the ability to judge for themselves and become complete sheep.

haha, they sound like a bunch of sheep to me.

I’d ask to try some first before I bought anything. Who cares if it is damn popular or not, friggin sheep.

rdj is right.

Herd mentality.

Be a wolf.

Or better yet, a Leopard.

“And this is why girls will date guys they know have slept with a lot of women.”

Thank goodness. It is so true, these days I swoop many girls of “reputation” alone.

Random unprotected sex comments automatically elevate any post to “excellent” category. Bravo.

same goes for dating a stripper. if you date one, others will surely follow, *more if you had her singing your praises in bed -even if you ended up getting caught red-handed cheating at the end*…if you build it/sling it, they will come.

So True. If you can become the topic of dressing room chatter, well, then you are in for a good night.

Would think this is a great thing but here in NYC it’s hard to stomach most strippers. Mercenaries working for Saddam’s Fayeed corp. are easier to stomach than most of those pigs.

And besides I dislike implants. Shape over size.

RW, which strip clubs do you go to? To me the worst NY strip clubs are the high end ones and the really ghetto ones. In general the ones in Manhattan suck, strip clubs are the one area of nightlife where you’re better off doing the outer boroughs and dealing with the midrange ones.

Well been to a bunch at one time or another in the area not just Manhattan. It’s where some of the married guys drag you out to once in a blue moon. I don’t go to any alone but once went to Scores on a business thing after dinner. The client was known to like it there but he wasn’t asking to go there. When he got there though, they seemed to know him. He left after 30 minutes and since it was my first time there I stayed.

One thing I’ve found is a short dose works best.

But you are right about the outer boroughs. The girls are more grateful for the business which is how I view it anyway.

Oh and I was asked out by one stripper at a place on West 21st street (name?) at a boxing promotion (over at the Hammerstein several years back as I was crawling out with a bunch of guys after a simultaneous Grey Goose vodka promotion (free) ). She called me and we set up a brunch in Soho for a Sunday but she overslept and then played it off as her parents were coming and she forgot. I should have called and woken her up but just went at TOA. As if. She’s a stripper after all.

When I asked a couple of the guys later if I could call her again I got the thumbs down on it. Of course they were right and I knew it.

My friend will drag me to the Squeeze Lounge in Weehawken now and then but I mostly beg not to go. Then he’ll throw me $20 for a dance and I have to relent. It’s in bad form at that point not to accept. There was a ballet like Byelorussian chick that I liked there but you know it’s a biz thing and once you are on there economic plan that’s where you stay.

On my way out she came over and the polite kiss goodbye and she basically started telling me when she’s there so I could come back to see her. I was like too bad I didn’t meet you across the street (it’s a gas station). Then I told her I don’t frequent the place and she wouldn’t be seeing me there again.

Wasn’t being rude, just wanted to let her know I wasn’t going to be feeding the machine.

She was doll like though and I was surprised to see her there. She said she was divorced. Apparently she got that out of the way early.

so funny and so true! Frequently salers try that to me: You should get this one, it’s great, I already sold lots of “it”!
Awesome, everything that I want is look just like the other girls!:thumbup:

RW,

“I don’t go to any alone”

The best move is to roll dolo to Gentleman’s Clubs.

That is if you want to swoop the Exotics with minimal cash outlay.

I do internet marketing (basically it’s freelance copywriting/marketing) and pick-up, and this is by FAR one of the best little snippets of advice for EITHER–bookmarked!!

Again, awesome (sometimes short and sweet can deliver massively well)…

I worked in sales for a long time and it’s such a great trick to use. Thank god most people are sheep, or sales would be a lot more difficult.
