View Full Version : Salespeople needed for interview for magazine article

02-15-2008, 11:57 PM
Hello, there. If you're in sales, may I please send you an email interview? I'm writing an on-spec article on sales jargon for Verbatim Magazine (verbatimmag.com).

I'm writing an article about jargon specific to salespeople, but it doesn't matter what exactly you sell. I'll be asking about language used to describe the business among insiders (like the word "spiff" for a sales bonus or "adding value" to improve the buyer's impression of a product) as well as commonly used phrases to entice a buyer to your product ("cozy" for a small house or "previously owned" for used, for example).

If you're interested, please email me at cpbusinelle (at) gmail (dot) com. Thanks in advance for any help you can give!

I'm not in sales, but do have a list of sales words. Let me know if you want the list (consultative sales, relationship building, and so on)
