"Selling is essentially a transfer of feelings." - Zig Ziglar
When I headed to the Ballard district in Seattle, under the suggestion of Jerry Holkins of @pamegacorp
, I planned on hitting up mostly breweries. In the end, I think starting with @trailbendtaproom
, if unintentionally, was the right way to go. Turns out it was their second day open since the grand opening one the day before.
When I handed off a bottle of mead from @phantomales
I realized that I maybe should have been stopping by taprooms more often, instead of just breweries. The bar manager poured a few glasses for several employees to try, and asked me if I had a pricing sheet. Had to inform him it was more a passion thing, and I wasn't a sales rep officially, though I gave him the email address to contact Phantom's owner regarding distribution.
