Tale of a 15 years old salesman!

Tale of a 15 years old salesman!


When I was 15 years old, I was interested in the latest technology.

This was an era of when internet cafes were mushrooming everywhere in Qatar.

At that time, there was a software used by internet cafes to monitor time slots of customers.

Back then, there was only one person in the city, who was installing that software in all the registered cafes. Due to this, the software was very expensive.

Since I was so interested in this new technology, I managed to crack the software then!

Then I visited internet cafes, met the owners, and pitched my service of installing the software for cheaper price.

Didn’t receive a good response.

I kept thinking about how I could stand out from others in the market.

I then decided to provide the software’s maintenance for one year… for free!

I pitched my new services to more owners, and I got my first sale which was around 1,500 qatari riyals ($ 400) !

That’s when I learned:

1) Often “No more” means “Know more”

2) Being Unique or being cheap does not guarantee a close

3) The biggest USP is convenience…customers want a right product / solution with convenience.

Like if you agree!
