About the Book

How This Book Will Save You Money

It is no exaggeration to state that this book could save you thousands of pounds, depending on the amount spent. A conservatory price of £48,000 – half price £24,000 can still have approximately £7,000 discount for the salesperson to play with. He will only give as much discount as necessary, as the more he gives, the less he earns. Knowledge of how the salesperson operates will enable you to ensure that the entire available discount is applied rather than the portion he thinks is necessary to make it seem like he is giving a good deal.

This Book Explains 

• How the pricing structure works.
• The phrases that salespeople use to manipulate customers into purchasing.
• How psychological fears are used to persuade buyers to make a hasty decision.
