Best Answer to “Sell Me This Pen” I Have Ever Seen

I personally never thought anyone would actually say, “sell me this pen” in a sales interview. I was wrong. It will happen to you too. And to avoid panic, you should know exactly what to say back.  I am going to give you the right sales framework to respond perfectly every time.  On a quick side note, did you know this sales interview question has been around for millions of years? Its origins date back to the earliest of cavemen. Selling slingshots cave-to-cave. Except back then, they asked, “sell me this bowl of crushed berries.”  Anyways. The point is, one day it will happen to you and I want you to be prepared.  Because if you start to describe how smooth the pen feels and how shiny the pen looks, just like you saw in the Wolf of Wallstreet…  You probably won’t get the job.
