What is the one product that you think would be absolutely easy to sell?

I'm thinking milk? Booze?

Now, would legalisation cause an increase or decrease in sales?

Increase for sure. Would just be cheaper!

You are either selling, or order taking. Milk, booze, Coca-Cola are all order items. It is not a question of "Are you going to buy Coca-Cola for your store?" it is, "How much Coca-Cola are you going to buy for your store?"ย 

Any easy sale? No such thing, because a sale requires one to generate interest in a product or service that did not exist prior to your showing up.ย

Actually much harder than you think - at least for wine. Stores only buys what sells and you always have a quota on the shit no one wants. The wine industry for big grocery chains is so deeply flawed to its core its astounding. Lots of faking and lying to meet quotas.

Consumer electronics - cell phones, sound systems, alarm technology. Earning potential reflects that though.

Consumer electronics is slowly getting commoditised. Too many players. Very little differentiation. Would be interesting to see how it evolves.

Higher demand than supply. I think the backorder was like 6-8 weeks for a while.ย

An easy selling job doesn't equate to an easy lifestyle. Lots of small-scale transactional sales out there with zero to little commission.

For ease vs. effort, my experience is selling to an industry with few, highly technical/experienced competitors and selling to the government or institutions. i.e. nuclear energy & defence manufacturing.

You know if there is a market based on public budget information, few decision-makers, relationship-focused sales, high barrier to entry for competitors and only so much work each competitor can take on in a timeframe.

I saw in another thread that Real estate sales is not something that people like doing. You have an interesting point of view!

I'd imagine it's relatively easy to sell AWS consumption increases to current customers via Account Management type roles.ย  I can't be sure, but it seems to be a solution that continually sells itself to a degree.ย  Anyone with experience selling AWS here to confirm/deny?
