A few days back a customer rang me up and told me that he was looking to purchase around 50 nos. of 4 KVA double boost stabilizers.
He said that there should be digital display and the secondary winding of the transfomer should have been wound with copper wires.
I gave a very reasonable price for a very good stabilizer.
He immediately said: No, that is too much. I already have offers for Rs.2300 a piece.
"Well, you see, Sir" I started.
He immediately said: No. no more discussions. I know everything....
There was no point. I said: OKay, no more discussions.
Sadly, customers don't realise that salesmen are a fund of information and allowing them to talk will give them a lot of inputs to make an informed decision!! Alas !!
