“May I help you?”
When was the last time you were approached by a clerk in the store with this message? Chances are good that you politely answered, ”Just looking.”
People like to buy but they don’t like to be sold.
How can you alter this simple question to get better results?
“How may I help you?”
“Are you trying to match an outfit?”
“Did you know that this shoe comes in other colors?”
“Would you like to see the matching handbag?”
