Saving Money Means Knowing How to Negotiate

As consumers we have the advantage because it’s easier to buy than sell. The world of negotiating encompasses ceiling and floor pricing. The seller will always put items higher for the consumer to feel at the end they obtained an amazing deal. Us the consumers will offer a lower price than the ticket just enough to start the negotiation game. I highly recommend people brush- up on this art especially with higher ticket items like homes, cars, recreational vehicles, jewelry, or anything of that expensive measure. Negotiating at department stores is like beating a dead horse trying to get them to reduce pricing. However, almost everything else is fair game for me anyways.


The key as consumers in saving big is knowledge of the item you want prior, and looking at few other store’s pricing for the same thing. Having all this in your back pocket avoids the sales rep from being able to outwit you with product and pricing facts. I believe that an average store’s product a 30% profit margin built-in or more on items. If a sticker price is $10,000 there should be at least $3000 to negotiate with. Knowing this my offer is always between 5%-10% and I’ll settle at 15% to 20%. If I can’t get the exact low price I want, time to hammer them on free options. If a sales person won’t play then I’m prepared to walk away from deal! it’s all about me and my money, saving as much as possible not concerned with their business woes.Let’s talk about buyer beware…We live in an add-on world where buying something isn’t enough anymore, the salespeople will try to convince us to purchase something else. This where your salesperson can obtain more commission and profit for the company. So, you negotiated a fantastic price on the lower side of profit margin, this is an opportunity for the company to increase margins. It could be wonderful warranties, be sure if you choose to look at the conditions. Next if financing, they will try selling on fear saying it’s only anther $10/month for example. Not bad but keep in mind that could be a financing term of 10 years plus interest. That means depending on interest rates anther $1500, lots of profit in warranties by the way. They could also try selling you something that pairs with your purchase, or upgrade you on the original purchase to better stereo or rims for instance.


Business is pleasant but it those who have the skills that survive. Generally, consumers don’t need those talents, but if you want to save money for better value using my negotiating tips will do you proud! The last thing is if you’re salesperson will not play don’t be afraid to walk away!

Should I Join Network Marketing: Should I Join Network Marketing Today or Never?

Before you decide whether or not to join network marketing, do yourself a favor and read within about what it takes to really make it in this industry. The reason that I say that is because while this is a huge opportunity to make an incredible amount of money, the sad fact is, most people fail. But before you go and throw the towel in before you get started, let me emphasize that if you are willing to do some very key tasks, you will enjoy a future that many others would love to have.

OK, let’s break it down….what you need to succeed is:

  • A dream! If you believe it, you can achieve it. You have to first believe that you will become successful. Do not go into the business telling yourself that you will “give it a try.” Every single time that I have heard that, I already know the outcome before the person actually “gives it a try.” You have to have the right mindset. Every network marketer will tell you the same thing and it is so true.
  • Network marketing education! This will help you understand the world of network marketing which basically means you will then have a clearer understanding of how to market to people. You do not want to join a business and then begin marketing to everyone. The reason is because not everyone is in the market for your product or service, let alone in the market for joining your business.
  • Strong work ethic! Are you willing to really treat your business like a business? Are you willing to do whatever it takes? Are you willing to make sacrifices in order to reach success?
  • A duplicatable system that funnels your leads into your business! To be able to do that, you have to provide value to people and basically give them what they want, which is answers that will help grow THEIR business by first funneling people to your unique landing page.

Personal mentors who can show you how to leverage the internet and how to effectively market your network marketing business. This is so important to your success. I must tell you that until I had mentors, I was like a fish in a boat, flip flopping around because I did not know where to turn! Having mentors is vital because mentors can show you what works! They are the reason that I have been getting results. Simple as that.

While there are many reasons anyone joins a business, if you want to join MLM, it is probably one of the best opportunities online in existence but if you do not know what you are doing, you will struggle. If you want a better way of life and you want to truly be successful and willing to do whatever it takes, you have a great shot of making a nice income. You really do.

If you are serious and want to join MLM, please do not try to do things on your own.. Reach out to those who want to help you, such as myself. Once you have the blueprint and the mentors, you will be amazed at the results you are able to achieve. I must also emphasize that you do not need to be a “techie,” a “guru,” or someone with a marketing degree, or any degree, for that matter, to become very successful. I can honestly tell you that, because I do not consider myself a techie!

The first step to your own success starts by partnering with those who can help guide you along the way. If you have the passion, ability to follow directions with the guidance and a no die attitude, you CAN do this!
