God IS a salesman 23 Jan. 2008
By CaliDream - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I've read a lot of business books, but never one that incorporated God into the subject--I was intrigued! The author makes a lot of great points that gave me food for thought, including: "Religion never says, 'look folks, we really want you to attend each time you do, we'll give you a free appliance." The author describes how to use religion as a divine example, because religion never demeans itself with cheap gimmicks (like the stereotypical used car salesman'). Instead, religion is founded on belief, faith, love, morality, etc. This and similar concepts made me say, "Wow, here is a business book that tells us we can be more successful by using an ethical, thoughtful approach. I believe I will use the lessons from this book everyday.

Customer service...with a "God" twist 8 Jan. 2008
By Armchair Interviews - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The publisher puts this book in the sales and customer service categories. I would have also placed it in the Christian nonfiction category. What author Stevens says is that in the age of science and reason, people still believe in a God that loves them and cares for them. Some would say this is not rational.

So why do people believe - because God is a salesman and has sold us on that concept. Now, that sounds scary. We have been "sold"!? Except that what Stevens explains in the book is a way of selling that is based on trust, truth, integrity, having the best interest of the customer in mind, etc. So, it starts to sound less like selling and more like serving.

Throughout the book Stevens explains how God has "sold" himself (in the Judeo-Christian tradition) to mankind - and then parallels how this can be applied to others types of selling. Near the beginning of the book he provides a table that contrasts the traditional way with the Master's way. It includes things like:

Traditional Way
Meet expectations
Satisfy customers
Give customers what they expect

Master's Way
Exceeds expectations
Thrill them
Surprise them with gestures of thoughtfulness

Basically what Stevens says is that God the Salesman wants a lifetime relationship with people that love Him and that too often companies are looking for the minimum they can do to make a sale and perhaps make another sale later.

Someone who wants to improve sales and customer service will find much in this book to learn from. Someone who wants a fresh look at how the God of the Bible treats His people will find that as well.

Armchair Interviews says: A business book with a Christian foundation.

One of my new favorites!!!!! 8 Mar. 2008
By Kindle Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I was given this book by a "salesman" friend of mine. Even though I am not in the sales field, I identified with the message of this book and hope to use this philosophy in several areas of my life. It has fast become one of my favorite books...I am buying three today to share with friends!

This is a surprisingly cool book 20 May 2008
By Reg Nordman - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is a surprisingly cool book. It is more than a good title however. Stevens explains that in a world where men are inclined to disbelieve, to be skeptical, to need evidence prior to trusting others this is not true in only one area, religion. He draws parallels between religious and secular selling. E.g.. He shows how the ways people are drawn to any religion can be used as examples of how a good sales/marketing effort has "drawing vs pushing" power. God does not make cold calls, says Stevens and then he makes a very good case for stopping cold calls as well as losing a dial for dollars mentality. Intellectually the arguments are clear and well presented. A short book that you will enjoy (Stevens is the author of Your Marketing Sucks)

Mark Hits the Mark 27 April 2008
By Dr. John S. Hollyman - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Mark Stevens in his 144 page book, God Is A Salesman,
gives one a plesant evening together, visiting as if
good friends. The business world needs the message
conveyed by one who has written more than twenty other
books. Having given this book to my son. I had to buy
another copy to keep.
