Like how big is your tank, how long you've had it, is it cycled, etc etc. Also sometimes relating your own experiences to the customer is helpful and separates you from being labeled as just an ordinary salesperson. I'll go over my sales guide that I teach to my staff and if I can give you any advise I'll pm you if that's ok with you. I do sales in electronics and with aquatics but both use the same selling techniques which is awesome. Pm me if u think I can be of any help
Yeah, that'd be brilliant if you could! I need all the help I can get
