Good luck in sales pal!

posted on 12th of october, 2009

Few weeks ago a friend of mine has joined a company that sells natural products and stuff for diet...
As a salesman, his first challange was to make a presentation in PowerPoint to present the company & it's products and show an argument based on what he learned during his training...

He asked me help as computers never been his strong point, on the contrary of his sales skills!
Well he brought me some photographs that he found on the net to use in his presentation, the text and a scan of the product that the company gave him also!

In these cases I don't like to face people immediately with the copy rights issue! It's not that I am afraid to speak about it, but it's better to convince people than confronting them with your firm opinion! At least that's how I like to do it... If I can't convince them I would tell directly that I won't work with illegal material!

Well the argument wasn't difficult at all! I told him: "You know I don't like much those photos, but leave it for me, I will arrange you good ones that you can always use and give a nice impact to your presentation..."

I confess two of the 4 photos I downloaded were not for the presentation purpose but as I had the opportunity to use them there I didn't hesitate to do so!

Today he told me that the presentation & everything went fine, the photos (that he loved), the animation and the argument...

Leave you with the photos and their use! Cheers ;)

The image of the business man were used in the history of the company;
The Doctor pointing used to present the product as a recomended healthy product;
The woman paying in the Supermarket was used to show one of the sales points;
The lady with the computer was used to talk about customer feedback & satisfaction.

Great job, Maen! I know how hard it can be to explain copyright issues to someone. I even stay away from the iffy stuff so I will always know that I'm in the right. In your case, a little tact went a long way.
