“People don’t rush for marriages, for better results, for better bonding. Why shall sellers expect customers to hasten decision to make their sale..?” Closing has not to be rushed


SCAM & PONZI Selling Hit, Selling Split – How..?

10 05 2013

SCAMs are way too attractive, at first, just like the first date, till the end until exposed. So how does the black market thrive so fervently and feverishly amid the internet so much around..? Question is greed blinds everyone, specially the working class.



DUBAI SCAM – Gruesome Details

The latest to surface is this Dubai Project and Assignment scam, which allegedly has swindled a million Dirhams from 6000 people. Reportedly, some people have lost their entire life savings kept for children’s education and marriage, has been lost. The pain is immense and the act seems to be gruesome.

Idea was to get an initial security deposit of AED 500 ($136) for 10 PDF assignments to be converted to word – earning AED 100 ($36.7) per assignment. That promises neat sum of profits. Many people lost as big as AED 50,000 (approx $13,000) of their life saving and some lost around AED 100,000 (approx $30,000) on this scheme. Converting PDFs to word format is almost automatic now, many tools available but these Dubai people read less and work more for their bosses, so they went after extra income promises to secure their futures, to some extent. But delusional.

Remember the PONZI scheme and Uncle Madoff? They purportedly weaved an attractive scheme to lure investors which many did. PONZI fever is on since 1920’s. Uncle Madoff, made a whopping $65 billion, eluding the Government, the investors and celebrities.



So How Do They Do It?

Simple, they make it look very attractive. In returns and in exhibition. Schemers and spammers and scammers are smart, witty and well planned in their theory. Their homework, their attire, is near to perfect. They dress up like a millionaire for the first impression. Doesn’t that signal a good professional, slick attire is the key to getting a sale or at least the foot in the door.

Schemers make it big by showing themselves big and talking big – big here means passion. Theft too is a passion and why would just enjoy fraud with the fear of landing behind bars, the passion, the lust, the love of money surpasses the fear.

Passion in Anything Gives it a Success

Even in Sales, passion has to measure up or even counter fear. Your passion has to reduce fear to a minion. Seek the drive, the dream, the burning desire to counter and challenge your fear. The fear is nothing but the sign board by the road leading you to the destination of your life.

Schemers promise returns. Big returns, low investments and sometimes higher investments.  Sales people too show the big promises of their product, if it doesn’t measure up, salesman doesn’t show up. Very unprofessional.

In selling industry, learn your product, how it works but more importantly, how it benefits the other person. If you start thinking how the other person will benefit, your sales approach will benefit and increase the sales.

Schemers and PONZI approach with trust. They build it, run it, expose it and then they run. In Sales too, you build trust and rapport before the defenses of the person are down and he is ready to receive your counsel taking you as an adviser. Purport yourself as a consultant and less of a salesman running for commission, that will see a steady growth in your sales management.

Dubai SCAM stings 6000 PeopleSchemers benefit their immediate contacts by giving immediate returns and profits by earning less for themselves in the initial stages. In sales, if you sell the benefits with emotional connection, people will start trusting you. People don’t buy brands, they buy the emotions connected with the brands and products. Create the emotional relationship with your product. But keep your product genuine.

LUST – PONZI works on building lust for more in less time. More in less and even more in even less. In sales, your career will go bust if you’re in lust. You will sell but shall sell short and eventually the company, the customers will sniff you out. People are more smarter than they used to be.

PONZI Vs. Pyramid Plans

But PONZI is not to be confused with Pyramid schemes. Every other structure and organisation is based on a Pyramid, starting with your notorious boss, who earns the most, while you at the bottom rung of the pyramid, is earning the least but slogging the most. Isn’t that PONZI now? Illegal is Pyramiding, which is another name for PONZI.

Credit Card

Credit Card Selling

Schemers pressure into making an investment. So does the traditional salesman. Traditional selling is already gone. Credit Card selling in Middle East is so notorious with traditional methods, they put cold calling to a shame.

Do the Homework

PONZI Schemers do a lot of homework so as not to get exposed. Idea is make money, buy islands, make money again, let your primary investors take a bit from your earnings, make money again and flee. Flee to West Indies and enjoy the cocktails. The easy-beach money. But PONZIs have been notorious to have been caught after several years and sometimes decades.

So sales guys, gear up, invest in your suits and boots, learn your product, learn your customer and their affiliations, pitch the benefits with emotional connect and just SELL. Don’t FAKE selling, it shows. Be passionate and start seeing the growth. Introspect what you want from selling and we’ll see you at the top.

Recession – No jobs, but fun of life?

7 05 2009

For children and students who are anticipating their oncoming vacations, don’t be burden on your parents. Do something worthwhile this time. Change should be the motto. The whole life is ahead to waste it, don’t waste ‘these’ vacations at least, give it a try. Give the ‘Change’ a try this time and be serious! READ ON

Recessions, liquidities, vanishing and evaporating jobs and businesses, out of money, out of life as well? No not yet, pessimism hasn’t taken over our beliefs and hopes. Although recession has sent a jolt all over and experts are saying this is the tip of the iceberg we all see. Well experts too have to draw salaries so they say whatever suits their expensive suits and their cabins.
The vacations are drawing in pretty fast, which would leave Dubai look thirsty for manpower and look deserted without children who might not return until the black clouds of recession are replaced by storming clouds of rain in Dubai, another scarcity.
So out of job, now out of education for the next 3 months. What to do? Pretty much is around the corner. Either waste it watching T.V which never made Einstein what is he is believed to be today. T.V never made leaders from the beanbags. What else? Fun and frolic helps in vacations but not for long. Monotonous has to be killed. Step out, find work or rather indulge in small trade as a youngster, which requires no insurance or offices, lucky for you; no need for PRO too.
Research, discuss, innovate areas of your interest. What remains then out of the remaining time has to be invested in some more interesting ventures; work out (exercise). The industry which is neglected by youth, thanks to the internet, chatting online makes friends but who knows who’s talking to you, her father or herself, but didn’t fail of recession. Greek mythology respected people with great physique, so why waste a talent on typing? Join a gym, if that is expensive, go swimming, the whole sea has been laid out and it’s free. Take friends and enjoy the maximum. Live life well, it’s once but no speeding.
Work out needs attention and before that consistency which only comes with planning and strong will. At this age, planning with strong will would train you to take up on challenges and by then you would have a strong fan following for your biceps and with a group on Facebook, although I hate using it. It just wastes time.
Next in list comes network gaming. If you cannot trade your luxury of parting from your computer, then this option is an addiction. Tournaments are plenty in the city off and on. Get your friends in groups and see how frail your relationship grows when one on one in opposition with them. Counter strike, Call of Duty, Medal of Honour (the latter is my dead favourite till date but no gamers for it, sadly). Practice head shots and Pakistani youth can see themselves competing in Japan and Dubai for international stage, if you can’t be a politician, you can be a gamer to promote Pakistan. Easy? Wait till you get your hands on Counter strike, it takes months if not days to master techniques on head shot.
If you are more serious to capitalize your time with results, get into learning languages, machines, business, hardware, business development, resourcing. But all these require a bit of age, but at your age stick to learning languages, that will pay off and you might land a job even before you are eligible to vote. DON’T VOTE POLITICIANS who don’t have an account on Facebook!!
Languages like Arabic, Persian, French and German carry in them their rich culture, language is the gateway to explore it. Moreover, you cross the barriers of culture too, public relations chances are increased if you plan to launch your own product.
Last but not the least, Pakistanis have long innovated something since the 1998 Nuclear tests. That was an achievement, you too are born to perform and win achievements and be in the newspapers’ front page, not the inside ones at least.
Think, innovate and share your knowledge. Nobody can take your place because, the one who teaches learns twice so the teacher is always ahead; ahead in opportunities and luck. But Pakistanis lack this understanding, shun this mentality, nobody can snatch your ability and jobs, if you are responsible and smart which you are of course since birth. Every Pakistani is. Fact is we have to rise up to realize it.
Pakistan Paaindabad.
P.S – Approach Pakistan Association Dubai in groups and show your intent to learn languages, they can work it out for you.
