How to sell a phone.

Welcome to my formula of selling a phone

When I started selling any product or service I didn’t know the importance of selling up. (Up selling). I’ve seen many sales people doing this very well.  Many times it would upset me, as I didn’t know what was the aim behind this sales person telling me to buy something I didn’t order or I didn’t plan to buy.



Me: Hello, can I have a pie of steak and kidney.

Sales person: ok. Would you like to have it with extra steak and kidney?

Me : No, that is fine.

Sales person.: Anything to drink? I have juice, cold drink and coffee. What would you like to drink your pie with?

Me: Nothing, ( saying this because I didn’t have much to pay for the extras.)

I will be mad at some point because if I have extra money I end up buying all the extras meanwhile in the house I do have cold drink, juice and coffee for that matter.

I didn’t know that they where up selling. When the time comes to deeply go into sales. I realize what they were doing.

Working in a mobile communication industry I learn that I also need to sell up to my clients to increase my sales. I came up with a formula called the:



P= Phone

A= Accessories

I= Insurance

when selling,You start by selling the a phone, then sell accessories for the phone.( Which help the phone to be protect from minor and major damages.) Then sell insurance for Major damages, loss and theft.

However Accessories and insurance can be sold visa versa. Either way it works

Accessories  like screen guard or pouch protect the phone from stretches which makes your insurance claim easy go, when the phone has no scretches.






Ready???…. Yes I am ready, but having a zero- zero balance in my account makes me not ready yet. R0.00 no this can’t be true.  All I know the future is exciting, as my words and thoughts be running at a speed of light.

Alan Knott-craig that’s how I feel many times.  Hold-up, he was always ready.  Majority now are not ready yet, with such attitude we are going to drop In the hands of dragon burning up to 40°-90° degrees.

Second is nothing. You should know by now.  Being first is the exciting part of all times. Craig can explain that feeling better. I also been first few times. You know why And how.? I was sourounded by like minds.  I am sorry to say this the future is to be somehow. Yes exciting for a few.

I can imagine you going for fishing with no net or string. Or going out for a long walk with no water to drink. I doubt you will reach the destination alive.  Just like canvassing with no data or airtime. IMAGINE THAT. HOPE YOU ROGER THAT.

Selling products to people wasn’t really something I could say I always loved, yet I did find my self selling products to people. All I knew, I  had a way to communicate with people, but I’ve never seen it to a point were I will be selling them items or maybe selling my services to people.

After my parents broke up when I was still young the need to start selling was there for me. But I couldn’t take it as I have grown pride, and fear at same time. What will this girls think of me, I didn’t know much better that girls love a guy with money or maybe a guy who can afford because I was still young, only having the mentally that if you handsome, further know how to talk, you can get anyone to fall for you. Little did I know that it only worked well when I was still young and my age group also didn’t know that much.

Things changed every quick and money is at the front line of every young adult, there I am still battling with my pride and fear of what would they say about me? what happened to me? what went wrong with me? Only to find out I was losing the people I loved, and I couldn’t find the answers to that. Began to accept that I started at the top and went back down, now trying to find my way back to the top have all the money even though it can never be enough, just like pouring water on top of a duck hoping it will be wet.

This time around I go house to house sometimes advertising, selling and buying things, resale them after being fixed or manufactured. I now don’t have a problem on doing that because I know the world of business is full of products to sell and services to offer.

Currently I sell paint and paint houses, and the selling skill has just matched me but took me years to notice that I can be a best seller and offer great services to the people. I was a bit shy before but It was not paying for me to be shy, and this people will never stop talking, so I decided to keep walking in building a fine life of my baby regardless of people say.

I still believe I have some time to cover up all this lost years of ignorance, fear, and pride. I didn’t know it was wonderful to be your self. Until I accepted myself solo unique in a presence of hundred thousand people. I  accept my self as the only one who can love me more than anyone could.
