Day 49: Personal Testimony

by Sarah Devika Sumnauth

So today, I had another full, very informative and productive day at work.  Everyday I feel as though my brain is expanding in its capacity to retain knowledge.  I learn about new mineral supplements and vitamins and all sorts of probiotics and protein powders, most of which I have access to - to try for free.  

Which rocks. 

In my pursuit of the perfect loose mineral foundation, one of the things that I value the most is that I can, for all intents and purposes, give out my own personal testimony because I’ve been using myself as the guinea pig for my product.  The same thing applies in a big store such as WF, because people are looking for the best of the best and want to know what you’ve tried, and if not tried, what you’ve heard seen and know.

Personal testimony is a great way to increase your sales in my opinion because it gets you on a different level with your customer and allows you to relate, in a personable way, how the product has made you feel.  Only proceed if it’s been a good experience.  And if it hasn’t, then gauge whether your customer can handle it.  Some can’t.

With that, I sign off for the night.  I can’t wait for my first day off so I can get back to work on my love, Urban Minerals!
