Laugh and Learn from 6 Funny Sales Videos

One advantage social media provides professionals with is a daily opportunity to gain industry insight and observe trends for best practices through the multitude of video resources available. Accessing this information is common practice among sales reps and marketers, and many learn from videos and content produced by other reps and marketers who sell sales and marketing software. This monotony of “sales and marketing” content can get kind of stale, and the benefits from the content may not demonstrate their actual value.

We’re all guilty of writing and reading about the same thing. It eventually becomes this vortex of similar content that can be hard to sift through and find things you didn’t already know, also leading to a lack of inspiration.

There is one type of content that can help us get out of this vortex and break the content monotony: funny sales videos. Featuring humor from some of the best videos out there, YouTube shares sales humor in an easy-to-understand and inspiring way that might even make you laugh out loud!

Cold Calling “Hello” Parody

Ever called someone and felt like the crazy lady calling to go over a few things from the Adele song “Hello” and searching for someone to talk to for a minute.  For some sales reps, Adele’s song hits too close to home. But it doesn’t have to be this way. At Gryphon Networks, we use software that can train your reps to a standard.

Tommy Boy – We don’t take no (explicit)

My personal favorite! We have all been there where you prepare, but then when the time comes, you cannot think of what to say next.  Even David Spade is having a hard time not laughing at the way Chris Farley presents himself in this classic scene from Tommy Boy.

Things Salespeople Say

Sales reps might be familiar with some of these things that salespeople say. In this video, Treeline, Inc. a sales recruitment firm, compiled a list of some of the great one-liners from sales calls.

Michael, Jim, Dwight Epic Scene

Brilliantly performed sales call role-playing from the crew of the hit show, The Office.  The best part of this is the seriousness the actors keep even when they are saying very ridiculous things. They role play and bring lightness to a very hot topic of sales training and sales calls in general.

Key & Peele – The Telemarketer (explicit)

Here the sales rep flips the switch and starts hanging up on the caller when the caller is not interested.  As we all aspire to get better, we sometime must learn to change the techniques and hold our ground and sometimes it is best to find an amusing way to learn this lesson.
