Learnings

The conversation can be meaningless, telling the obvious or asking them boring questions.

Prepare a few "pickup lines". Just keep talking. The key is avoiding awkward silence, easier to close sales.

It's even better if u rmb some details if possible, establish more human touch and connection.

This skill is useful everywhere. #吹水讲废话

My dad used to call me "clam mouth", coz my face is serious by default #他生的 and i dun talk further when customer asks for price (my mouth = clam shell = close hard 😂).

Many customers walked away without buying if I served last time. Cost him some lost before, haha.

But! I'm now his favorite helper lol... compare to my brother. 🤣

Well, programmer better, by default can be "clam mouth", that's the common expectation. 😆
