Learn from The Secrets of The Most Succesful way to Sell Toothbrush

The kids filed back into class Monday morning. They were very excited. Their weekend

assignment was to sell something, then give a talk on productive salesmanship.

Little Sally led off: "I sold girl scout cookies and I made $30," she said proudly, "My

sales approach was to appeal to the customer's civil spirit and I credit that approach for

my obvious success." "Very good," said the teacher.

Little Mary was next: "I sold magazines," she said, "I made $45 and I explained to everyone

that magazines would keep them up on current events.” "Very good, Mary" said the teacher

Eventually, it was Little Johnny's turn. The teacher held her breath ... Little Johnny

walked to the front of the classroom and dumped a box full of cash on the teacher's desk.

"$2,467," he said. "$2,467!" cried the teacher, "What in the world were you selling?"

"Toothbrushes," said Little Johnny.

"Toothbrushes!" echoed the teacher, "How could you possibly sell enough tooth brushes to

make that much money?"

"I found the busiest corner in town," said Little Johnny. "I set up a Dip & Chip stand and

gave everybody who walked by a free sample."

They all said the same thing, "Hey, this tastes like dog shit!"

Then I would say, “It is dog shit. Wanna' buy a toothbrush?"

"I used the Gillard [Obama, Cameron - Insert here) approach of giving you something shitty

for free, and then making you pay to get the taste out of your mouth."
