Sales Masterclass- Negotiating

Is there a better negotiation and time management class out there better than offering a hot item below average price on Facebook Marketplace? I think i am going to have all my interview candidates post a piece of outdoor furniture or gym equipment for a reasonable price and see who can handle the pressure of the influx of messages and low ball prices that come on FB.


Anyone agree that Marketplace is insane and a true test to what it feels like for a consumer that submits contact forms for multiple vendors to respond to, lol?

I think haggling in general, whether it is as a seller, buyer, talking their way into a free room upgrade in Vegas - I think it would be fascinating to watch potential candidates do something like that. Unscripted, real world test of negotiating skills.ย

F'ing love this. So true. Like have them meet you at a reservation only restaurant for the interview and see if they can talk there way into a table (even though you have the reservation anyways as a fall back, but a tough hill to climb if they fail the 1st test, but may as well eat).ย

There is no more frustrating sales than Facebook Marketplace!ย  Low ball offers, no shows, terrible comms!ย  But still the best place to sell personal items!

He has been interviewed by a few sales folks out there already, worth checking out but his most eloquent student is Josh Braun.
