How a lame Apple salesman missed out on Ipad sale
The salesman they say is the the face of the organization to the consumers . Unfortunately sometimes this can be a plus as well a minus for the organization , a minus for the apple store in Perth city on this occasion.
The story of the Apple salesman and the ipad
I had left subtle hints an not so subtle hints to my partner since the start of November 2010, as to the good qualities of the Apple ipad and how it could be a nice addition to our household .. specially as Christmas was near. I was 100% sure almost that i done a good job of making it known that that was what i would be happy to receive at Christmas as my present , so i was quite surprised when i saw quite a huge box suddenly appear under the Christmas tree on Christmas. I excitedly opened up the box to a see shiny pair of New bose speakers and i danced with joy. Listening to music being one of my passions i was happy with joy and totally forgot about the IPAD that i was hanging out for.
The new Bose speakers was a treat , and soon the apple Ipad was totally forgotten and drowned int he music of my new Bose speakers. In fact when my better half told me the story that transpired in her effort to get a new ipad for me and then ended up getting a Bose speakers instead , i was happy she had done the right thing.
She narrated the story that happened at the apple store, apparently she was dressed in casuals as it was a friday and entered the apple store ready to buy a apple ipad and had already withdrawn cash to to buy the Ipad. She entered the store , and the salesman had a look at her probably decided that she was not a prospective customer. So while she was hoping that the sales representative approached her to offer some help in choosing the right model, he infact saw her, totally ignored here and went to a man wearing a suit who just had a chat with the salesman then had a browse in the store and took off.
That’s the new Christmas gift it got below
Amazingly enough this small Bose speakers replaced my tallboy speakers which i was proud of due to the amazing bass it produced , but when i plugged in the bose speakers the clarity of sound and good BASS as well certainly wone me over to push my tall boys into the garage.
Apple Ipad vs Bose speakers
She waited in hope that she could find another salesman that could help her out make the right pick on a Ipad, but no –one approached her .she just got fed –up, frustrated waiting and left the store without an IPAD. The salesman at the Apple store obliviously was not the best trained to totally ignore a person who had got cash and was most certainly in the shop looking to buy an ipad.
She took off due to the poor service and decided to spend her money elsewhere , where somebody could help her make the right decision .My partner ended up buying a Nice set of bose speakers , because the salesman at west coast hi-fi did his job with the best customer service , explained what was the most suitable speakers that she needed and also one which fitted in her budget. I was a happy man as she did make the right choice of speakers for our house ( off course you cant go wrong with a BOSE SPEAKERS) and i got a nice sound system .Merry Christmas to you all in advance !!
