|Where does my money go?|
Hey, your salesperson was a knowledgeable young man and was trying to help right? Maybe! Or maybe not! How do you know for sure? Did he or she ask, "may I help you?" Or engage you in a conversation? That answer alone is a good tip-off whether your salesperson has received proper training to transfer money from your wallet into their commission fund. Hey, that's what our economy is all about, right? Sure, but you don't want to feel like a chump every time you buy something of value.
Retailers train their salespeople to set up a good rapport to enhance the sales process. This gets you comfortable and puts your defenses at ease? Maybe you thought he was just being nice? And that's just the beginning! We're all used to the subtle ploys used with the ways products are arranged on the shelf but how about when a salesperson backs you up in a corner? How did you get there? Did you pay attention to the questions he asked and the answers you gave? It's all about the many ploys used to separate you from your hard earned cash.
