The Wolf of Wall Street is one of the greatest biographical black comedy movies of all times. The movie depicts greed and ambition like never before. It contains many moments that teach you exactly what not to do in your life and work.
There’s a popular scene in the movie, where Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio) teaches his team how to make a successful sales pitch. He begins by explaining the current standing of the firm. He goes on to explain how being a startup business cannot stop them from having huge ambitions and making them successful. The scene continues as Jordan shows his employees how it is done and how a client is reeled in. Though very enjoyable to watch, the scene is very disturbing from the client’s perspective. So, sparing the overtly aggressive behaviors and the language, here are three tips that you can inculcate to win a successful sales pitch in the right way. These tips are time-tested and helpful. They work on bridging the gap between a pitch and a sale by exuberating confidence, creating and winning trust, allowing the client to be mindful, and persuading him to buy your product. So, let’s get started!
You can actually enact these tips in your real life to close the deal. Remember these simple easy-to-implement tricks the next time you’re trying to make a sales pitch and you’ll end up pitching like the Wolf (with good intentions)!
