Two things happened last week that reinforced something I’ve already believed.
First, one of the guys working on our lawn rang the doorbell and handed me a crumpled up five-dollar bill and said, “I found this while mowing. It probably fell out of your pocket.” Naturally, I thanked him and told him to keep it.
Second, Karen and I went to see the movie “Dunkirk,” which I highly recommend. While I was waiting to buy my tickets, a dude in his early twenties, stepped up to the ticket counter next to me and said, “I bought my ticket online but accidentally clicked the senior discount price. I owe you some more money.”
Yep, my belief that most people are honest and fair was once again confirmed.
Since we are bombarded daily by negative news, I thought you’d find these two stories uplifting. There is an important sales and marketing point as well. Namely:
Offer great guarantees.
Remember, in every transaction; one party assumes more of the risk than the other. If you want to close more sales, then you should assume as much of the risk as possible.
Will a small fraction of people take advantage of you? Maybe but it will be tiny. As I’ve shown you today, most folks are honest.
Kick butt, make mucho DEEnero!
