Better than i expected April 14 2007
By angelrats - Published on
Format: Paperback
I had actually been planning on letting go of an employee the week this book arrived. She was letting easy sales go and making many other numerous mistakes in dealing with our bridal customers. The day after the book came, I accidentally left it in our break room when I was called to the sales floor. My employee found it and began reading it. She asked if I would let her take it home to finish reading it and I am so glad I did. In a few days, she became one of my best sales people and is still with my company.

The book is a suprisingly easy read, with simple suggestions that make all the difference in the world. I have since ordered a second copy and reading it is now part of our new employee orientation.

Not for everyone Sept. 11 2007
By Michael S. Johnson - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is only helpful to those involved in selling furniture...or perhaps automobiles. This book certainly does not apply to apparel retail.

The book itself is a breakdown of one man's experience in the furniture retail business into easy to digest steps.

If you are looking for a book on selling something else such as apparel I recommend Retail Selling Ain't Brain Surgery...It's twice as hard.

More than just a book. April 10 2006
By Jack Star - Published on
Format: Paperback
I had the fortune of using this book for over 5 years to make my mark in the retail furniture business. I can honestly say it is not just a book, but a total way of approaching retail sales. I would not use any other method of retails sales. I found it opens the door to quick customer relationships and keeps them coming back to buy. It gets you involved with their needs immediatly rather than waisting time you don't have. This little book helped me generate the income I needed to be successful in retail. Mr. Kennon has a clear and concise message that works.

The 'magic key' of sales March 2 2006
By Brian - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book by Terry Kennon puts the magic key(s) of sales into a very straight forward 6 step process. Fun and entertaining stories are sprinkled throughout to reinforce each point. This is a great read for the professional sales person. Even if you are not in sales you will thouroughly enjoy the stories. If you ever bought or sold anything person to person (which probably includes all of us), this book by Terry Kennon will make your day (and probably more).

Proof is in the Pudding Dec 30 2010
By brucerb - Published on
Format: Paperback
I am the General Manager for Floor depot... a 3 store chain in San Antonio, TX. After reading this book 6 months ago. I have implemented many of the techniques I learned from this book with my store managers and sales staff. Even in these hard econmic times we have seen an increase of 23% in our closing ratio company wide a 4% increase in our over all margin. Our Sales staff seems to be selling with more confidence than ever. So Thank you for sharing your Trade scerets from the furniture business Becuase they have worked for me even in the flooring industry. I guess the other lesson I learned is if you are looking for ways to improve your business try what is working in other industries
thanks for your help
