While I understand that sales can be difficult at times, and granted many of the people visiting your resort may be there only for a night to
escape from their children relax in a serene environment, I’d like to offer a few suggestions that might make a sale of one of your timeshare units a little more appealing.
~ Please refrain from SWEARING in front of me. I realize that you might think it gets your point across a little more emphatically, but truthfully it just starts grating on me and I begin to lose interest in anything you are saying.
~ Wear a little less cologne. A little goes a long way. Too much cologne just screams ‘slick’ to me.
~ Don’t pretend to know that my kids are going to be crazy once they become teenagers, so I must take family vacations RIGHT NOW. While I understand family time is crucial, guilt won’t work on me. I am now more determined than ever to prove you wrong.
~ Flashing a wad of $50’s in front of me when you take your wallet out to show me a special ‘members only’ card is a bit of a turnoff. Makes me think you’re getting just a wee bit too much money ~ and I’m not willing to add to that bundle at the moment.
~ Loud isn’t always nice. I ask my kids all.day.long to please bring their voice levels down. When people at nearby tables turn to look at you when you are talking and laughing ~ it might be a bit over the top.
~ Trying to talk us into buying a timeshare and paying basically interest only for 4 years because it’s a ‘tax advantage’, might not have been the smartest move. I believe Dave Ramsey says it best ~ “It’s not in the budget!”
~ Offer me your best deal up front. Don’t start at $27,000 and then offer the SAME unit and amenities for $6,000 right before we leave. That just smacks of dishonesty to me. I realize commissions are on the line and you get more based on what we pay, but really?
That’s all for now. Just wanted to put it all out on the line for you and hopefully explain a little more about why we didn’t buy into your deal today. We do, however, appreciate the 3 day/2 night stay that we received…and the cruise we’ll be getting for sitting through the 3 hour tour.
