Canâ€™t Sell Today
Diatribe From a Fallen Sales Hero
By: Lee B. Salz – President of Sales Dodo
Canâ€™t sell in January. Between the terrible weather and everyone coming back from vacation, how can you expect someone to focus on buying now? Iâ€™ll pound the pavement next month.
Canâ€™t sell in February. More snow and more vacation. Way to go, Washington and Lincoln; thanks for Presidentâ€™s Day! Itâ€™s such a short month.Â No one can make a decision in such a short month. Next month is going to be better.
Canâ€™t sell in March. No one is going to make a decision on this with more holidays around the corner. Good time to shop for summer clothes. Iâ€™ll just borrow money because Iâ€™ll make huge commissions later to pay it back.
Canâ€™t sell in April. Who wants to focus on buying with Spring in the air? And hey, my kidâ€™s birthday is this month. Iâ€™m sure my prospects are working on their taxes anyway. Next month will be better for sure.
Canâ€™t sell in May. Great weather in May, and I hear that my prospect may be thinking about being acquired. No problem. Iâ€™ll look for better ones next month. Thereâ€™s tons of opportunity out there.
Canâ€™t sell in June. Kids are getting out of school. Wow! I almost forgot Flag Day. No one buys in this weather. Besides, July is a better month for sales anyway.
Canâ€™t sell in July. Great time of year to be at the beach and enjoying the outdoors. I think all of my contacts are on vacationâ€¦together! Nope, canâ€™t sell this month.
Canâ€™t sell in August. Too hot! Besides, Iâ€™m taking my vacation. They probably are taking theirs too. No selling to be done now. Next month, for sure.
Canâ€™t sell in September. Between the three-day Labor Day weekend and a new fiscal year kicking in, no one is buying anything. Iâ€™m feeling good about next month.
Canâ€™t sell in October. Columbusâ€™ birthday; what should I get him this year? I almost forgot Halloween! Iâ€™m going to focus on selling hard over the next two months. Iâ€™ll finish the year strong.
Canâ€™t sell in November. Thanksgiving, ya know. Very short month. I donâ€™t think any of my contacts have their budget yet. Canâ€™t buy without a budget. Man, December is going to rock!
Canâ€™t sell in December. Everyone is on vacation in December. I know I am! Who can focus on buying with the end of the year so close? What should I do for Festivus this year?
Oh well, maybe next year will be better for sales. Luckily, no one is buying anything from anyone this year.
