I saw this over the weekend and thought of you Savages! Take a look and learn from a master.

I mean, he went right into the value prop without discovering any true need or pain points so I give it a 6/10

Agreed. He doesn’t even know if they need a keyboard or what their favorite letter is. What if they don’t even have hands?! 😳

I think that was the best way forward in this case.

I agree with this, but I think given the format of the show, it was ok.

In real life, you're trying to find people in a buying window, you want to help them buy, not sell to them. But I think the point of the show was to try to sell at all cost, that's why his approach is justified.

Good pitch, not a single question though; he needs to dig deeper to find a problem he can solve.Β

I dont think a PPPPP keyboard can solve problems. If you ask, you lose.

I wasn't focused on product itself, but the way the pitch was sent. I imagine this show is designed to put your skills to the test. I would have started by asking what his favorite letter was, and why? Then introduce his letter specific keyboard with lights for his gamer setup that I learned about though the call.

@RichieΒ see what they did here? They found some cool content on the internet, then shared a link with all of us.Β 

They didn’t copy and paste it into a post without giving credit to the source.Β 

Plagiarism is real.Β

I'll give him some credit, he was given a pile of shit to sell and he wrapped it up quite nicely and presented some fantastic features and benefits. If I'm being critical of his true Sales Skills - He never asked for the sale!
In a purely transactional sale, like this... You can get away without asking discovery questions, if you remember to ask the ultimate question - Will You Give Me Your Money?Β
