A fantastically chipper good morning to all!
Last night I was at a steak night fundraiser. It was a great time even though I ate chicken instead of steak (it was a choice I made). The whole thing got me to thinking about hawking stuff to help yourself out. This fundraiser was for the school orchestra that my sister plays in and that I played in for years so I didn’t have too many problems shelling out $15 for a delicious meal. But how do you get past dealing with your family and sell stuff to the masses?
Almost as if my question was meant to be answered, a friend of mine came over to my table for a chat. Turns out he took up a new job as a vacuum sales guy. Of course I asked him just how he could go to strangers and convince them to buy vacuums…hold up I forgot a key ingredient here…
I was wondering how people sell stuff because I cannot bring myself to push ArmsUp t-shirts on people. Every gig we go to we bring a big box of shirts to sell to people, but when it comes down to the actual selling we always shit the bed…
Back to the story of vacuum sellers, steak night and my conundrum. My buddy tells me that it sucks selling stuff so he just had to swallow a bit of his pride and do it. He suggested that we get someone famous to wear our shirt at gigs. Someone who just wouldn’t mind pushing the shirt onto people. The vacuum brochure has examples of celebrities that own the ol’ cleaning system so why won’t it work for us?
Anyone know any famous people that want to hang out at our shows in a pretty cool t-shirt?
p.s. If you don’t buy a vacuum you’re liable to die from spores, dust or worse
