Buffetting : Hiatus Apology
Alright there might not be many, fine, close to zero readers out there reading my blog but still, here's an apology to those who drop in every month XD
Why haven't I been updating?
What? You mean you can't blog if you are working?
What? I work from 10.30 am to 7.30pm, staring at people walking into Machines to get their hands on Ipad 2, Ipod or whatever heck I products in Machines for the last 3 days okay? Do you know how vexing is that?
Plus, I have to stand and butter up all the customers in Machines to ask them whether are they interested in getting and Ipad 2, then only I can start selling my plan.
Wait, what's the plan I'm selling?
Owh, you didn't know I was working for Maxis instead of Machines?
For the past weekend I was working under Maxis as a part-time promoter around the Machines franchise in Sunway Pyramid.
What was I promoting?
It's like when Machines launched Ipad 2, we collaborate with them to allow us to sell our plans while their customer get their hands on Ipad 2.
Let skip the product details to the customer should we?
Working as a promoter, even more for plans like Maxis Ipad 2 Data Plan, taught me lotsa stuffs.
1. It's all hard selling. Getting customers who come right up to you only happens when you hit jackpot. Oh wait, the commission for each plan sold is only RM5. Sad.
2. Smile, no matter how the customers looked at you,snarled at you, or just plain ignored you when you go up to them. Because they are God.
4. You can always make friends. With fellow promoters, or even those in Machines who are not your colleagues. Why? They are your entertainment.
5. Just be smart with the timing. Promoters are PROMOTERS. A difference in 5 minutes work is close to none. The only thing you will get is probably realizing you have like a gazillion hours more till work ends.
Quite whiny for a promoter, no?
Well, I get that a lot from S these days. Why so whiny???!!!
Okay, lets get man-ned up then.
