How can I help you ?

I suppose that’s the most popular greeting message by salesperson in all kind of shops. What’s your answer to this kind of greeting “questions” ? To me, it is either “Yes” or “No” … and of course if my answer is “No”, it means I will leave the shop soon – i.e. the end of the selling opportunity. So, I reckon the better greeting message shall be …

“Have you tried our latest products / services ?”

If your answer is “Yes”, the salesperson can follow up to check whether you like the products / services or not; and cross sell other products. If your answer is “No”, the salesperson can then kick start the engine to introduce you the benefits of the latest and greatest products / services. In both cases, you will sell more …

Lesson Learnt: If you’re a salesperson, you know which greeting message you shall use.
