There are ways around corruption in business. I met a great salesman for a German made shower head that retailed for 100 dollars in 1980. At the time our average customer could afford it but how do yo get them to spend that much. We had 20 plumbers working at this company at the time and none believed we could sell a 100 dollar shower head. The sales man gave each of us a shower head to take home and put in our shower and offered a $5.00 bonus for each one we sold. The sales said anytime a customer ask you about a shower head you tell them the one you have is this German mad one. At 5 cents a day it is a great investment over the inexpensive one that came with the faucet. I enjoy it every day. It is the little things that can get your day off to a good start.
Nothing I said was a lie. It was a great shower head. Positive feed back is one of the best selling features. Also most well off people will spend the money just to have something better than the average person. We sold over 144 in 2 weeks and never looked back. The sales man by giving us each a shower head had set up a great sales pitch for his product. The best bang for the buck advertising he could have done. We all made out great including the customer who did get a great shower head that did make them feel better each day.
